About Port Royal Ocean Resort & Conference Center
The Gulf Coast is calling you to the Port Royal Ocean Resort & Conference Center in Port Aransas. Located on 25 acres of prime beach, the resort is also not too far from Mustang Island State Park and The Port Aransas Ferry System.
Rooms come fully equipped with courtesy Wi-Fi, kitchens, flat screen TVs, washers and dryers, and AC.
The resort features three outdoor pools with water slides, hot tub, volleyball, basketball, and tennis courts, free Wi-Fi, complimentary parking, concierge, ATM, 24 hour reception, business center, gift shop, babysitter, and laundry.
The Port Royal Ocean Resort & Conference Center serves up delicious food at Restaurant 361, light meals and drinks at the Bistro, and poolside fare and beverages at the Cabana Bar & Grill.
Guests of the resort are roughly eight miles from Port Aransas Beach, Roberts Point Park, and Fisherman’s Wharf.
Swim laps during the winter
With three outdoor pools which are open year-round, water slides, and a hot tub, the resort is a great place for the water baby in all of us. As an added bonus, with coastal Texas' mild weather year round, you can take a dip in the hot tub or swim a backstroke even in January.
Dine at the resort or in your room
With a full restaurant open from breakfast through dinner, an a la carte bar and grill, and a snack bar at the pool, you'll have plenty of supper options. Or, if you want to save some cash, you can pick up groceries and cook in your condo.
Tons of activities
The Port Royal Ocean Resort & Conference Center is a self-contained wonderland. With tennis courts, basketball, beach volleyball, 3 pools, waterslides, a restaurant, a pool-side bar, and a close proximity to the beach and central Port Aransas, you'll never run out of fun.
Could use an update
Despite the prime coastal location, some former visitors to the resort had a few concerns regarding its furniture and design. Worn out beds, dingy or stained carpets, older décor, and musty corridors were a few of their issues with their accommodations.
Restaurant can be pricey
There are several places to grab a bite at the resort, including Restaurant 361 and the Cabana Bar and Grill. However, some guests mentioned that eating in can add up quickly. Fortunately, each condo comes with its own kitchen, so you can keep your wallet happy by cooking your own meals.
Can be noisy
One of the perks to staying on the coast is being able to hear the ocean's soothing sounds from your room. On the other hand, you won't be as happy hearing noisy guests through the walls and windows due to the poor soundproofing. Light sleepers should bring ear plugs.
