I'm picky, very picky, I like what I like...and enjoy upscale travel. We had booked a Club Ten Room and upon arrival there was an issue with our reservation booked through the hotel website. Needless to say, I was very unhappy. The manager went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied and turned a bad situation into... More

On a recent business trip, the hotel where I originally booked was oversold. As a result they transferred me to the San Luis. What a pleasant surprise!! I was upgraded to the elite floor with a beautiful view of the water and special snacks available throughout the day. The hotel was very well appointed and comfortable. Courteous staff made the...

Excellent property with great staff and food. Last time we visited, we were disappointed with service of front desk staff. Evidently they have new management that really cares about customer service. Every employee acknowledges you and speaks with when you pass. Food was great. Pool is on eof best around. Keep up good work.

We've stayed here many times and love everything about The San Luis. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are beautiful and they have the best pool on the island. We stayed on the 10th floor this time and it was fabulous! Can't wait to plan our next trip!

My son and I stayed at this hotel in September and were treated like royalty! I wanted to create a wonderful memory and The San Luis Resort made that happen! Beautiful room, beautiful pool, excellent service. Every-where we turned there was an attendant who was asking us how our stay was going and if we needed anything. We seriously felt... More

We attend a yearly association conference here and the staff does a terrific job in preparing and hosting our group. The renovations are welcome and have improved the meeting and dining spaces. The rooms are comfortable and all have terrific waterfront views.

Excellent and professional service. Sounds completely snobby, but while laying by the pool, I couldn't help but think of the intense training that must go into rearing locals into a professional speaking and courteous staff. Does that make sense? between the views, the amazing food and a truly professional, efficient and eager to please staff, you will forget your in... More

Hotel is a little dated, but the hotel is a good choice when staying in the area. The pool alone--if you are a pool person, is worth it. The restaurant is also good. The room was a little humid, but could be because of age of place and location. I wouldn't want to pay top dollar for this property, but... More

SPA - I am giving Massage Therapist a rating of EXCELLENT. She was sensitive to the many needs I brought to the session. Tender shoulder, arthritis and various other complaints.
