Although I have been to Galveston many times, this was my first stay in an island condominium. The facility is located on the East end of the island which makes it convenient to The Strand , Bolivar Ferry and many of the island's restaurants. It is a bit of a distance to Moody Gardens and the West End beaches. The... More

We recently stayed here for the 2nd year in a row in the same room! We absolutely love it. I even proposed to my fiancee on the balcony overlooking the Gulf at sunrise. We cannot wait to go back again next year. The staff is wonderful. The property is pristine. The accommodations are superb. I can really see ourselves going... More

This is a lovely condo. The views from the balconies are fantastic. Though each unit is different, ours was very clean, well furnished and comfortable. We had 2 small patios in the one bedroom. It had all the dishes you would need if you want to cook. The beach is swept daily and you can rent chairs and umbrellas. The... More

Love these condos. My favorite place to stay in Galveston. My only wish is that it was a little more affordable. Great staff and property. Wonderful beach area with a great pool overlooking the beach.

First let me start by saying we met most of the key staff Greg, the GM and Frank the Financial Manager, great guys. But the front desk staff, primarily Cindy & Roz, made our stay FANTASTIC, many thanks to both of them. We were originally going for 3 days but enjoyed it some much we stayed 6. The grounds are...

I took my grandchildren to the Galvestonian for a 3 day weekend and it was really fabulous. It is right on the beach with wonderful ocean views. The staff clean the beach each morning so there is no seaweed present, just nice clean sand. They set up beach chairs and umbrellas for you also each morning. The pool area is... More

From the moment you walk in you feel at home! The front desk staff is very friendly, this includes the housekeeping and maintenance staff. Eager to assist in any way. The unit we stayed in, 906, always feels inviting and cozy! There was little sign of seaweed, which seemed to be the big news story for Galveston this year. This... More

I rented a 2 BR on the 12th floor for my birthday getaway. Absolutely love this place. Front desk staff is wonderful, my condo was perfect. I will never stay anywhere else. First day there (my birthday) a rainbow appeared over the water. Standing in the balcony it looked like you could almost touch it. Clean beach, wonderful pool, great... More

This is the second time for me at the Galvestonian and it was spot on. We rented a 2/2 (#1002) this time and it was spotless, nicely decorated and had a great blender! Linens and beds were comfy and flat screens in each room. Enjoyed the wonderful sunrises and sunsets from the balcony. We chose a room with 4 chairs... More
