My family just completed a traveling reunion which started in San Antonio and ended at the San Luis Resort in Galveston. This was our first visit to this beautiful hotel resort and hopefully not our last. I can not say one negative thing about our stay. Everyone of the staff was friendly and never hesitated to ask if we needed... More

The best hotel in Galveston. What's not to love? The service is excellent, they keep everything spotless, there's continuous cleaning and they are so organized. The pool with the slide and hot tub and tons of super comfortable sun chairs are awesome. They put a wrist band on all guests and give cards for towel check out so it is... More

Overall a great stay, excellent sea view from room, very good sized bedroom and bathroom. Pool was fantastic, open all day and night, very family friendly, though not supervised at all times. Food excellent. However, lifts a let down, excessive waiting times at peak times, housekeeping and porters needing to share lifts. However, I would still return and highly recommend... More

Had such an incredible experience...way too short but oh so sweet! Jennifer Cooper, a concierge there, made us feel like VIP's giving us such spacious rooms with beyond beautiful views. I enjoyed those things more than anything else on the trip lol. We barely left the hotel but once to go to the beach. The pool was too fun and... More
