Great perks offered at this resort! I LOVE the yoga on mon, wed, and thur at 6pm. It is the perfect time because you can get off of work and go to class and the class is frequent enough that I feel like I am really improving, which keeps me coming back! Carmen is the instructor and is a wonderful... More

Top notch hotel with a great Gulf view. Our one night stay was rainy and cold, but the pool area was so inviting that people were out enjoying the pool and spa. The Steakhouse Restaurant was truly 5 star and the Grotto was great for breakfast. Several other nice restaurants within walking distance. The Valet parking was sure nice with... More

The San Luis is a great hotel. Off season, the rate is very good. The reception is friendly and efficient. It has a large (but shallow) heated pool, which provides an excellent venue for moderate exercise - it is great to be able to swim outdoors in January. The rooms all have ocean view and a spectacular view of the... More

Popped down for a last minute overnight getaway. Everything went well...enjoyed the pool area, live music in the restaurant, lovely meal. But found out the next morning the shower didn't function...no hot water. Made me wonder how the cleaning staff could not have reported the issue. Had to wait 30 minutes for maintenance. Eventually had to replace the part. Hotel... More
