My fiancé and I stayed at the san luis this past weekend and had a great time. We stayed on the club 10 level and were not disappointed. The highlights were the heated pool with swim up bar and the French toast breakfast.

For 339.00 a night All we got different was no children running up and down the halls. The first room they gave us the shower door didn't close all the way and the bathroom floor was flooded...

We stayed 3 nights and the first night, the air conditioning in our room was broken. I called the front desk at 2:30am and the clerk told me to turn it off and then back on. That didn't work. So i called again later that morning and they sent maintenance up right away and fixed it. He apologized and brought... More

I was excited about attending my cousin's wedding in Galveston at the The San Luis Resort. My expectation were very high because of the positive comments I had heard about this resort. After over paying to stay in a very small room (king size bed) that was in need of MUCH RENOVATIONS. The A/C very loud, small bathroom (only 1... More

What a way to enjoy Thanksgiving. You check in to the hotel and then go to the Thanksgiving buffet. We will start with the hotel. We chose the beach side with the obvious beach view. Our room was huge as compared to the typical room. We had a sliding glass door with access to a small patio to enjoy the... More

Overall this was a relaxing trip for me and my husband. We truly enjoyed their Thanksgiving day feast in years past and decided to stay this time for a couple of nights. We've stayed at the hotel many times in the past and I would always give it a 5. However, this time I give the actual room itself a... More

DO NOT MISS Thanksgiving buffet at this resort! We have been to countless buffets, Thanksgiving and otherwise, but this has to rank among the very best. The quality of the food offerings was excellent and that was paramount. Next would be the variety. It seemed endless. Traditional turkey, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, etc. But also breakfast dishes, seafood of many... More

My husband and I chose to celebrate Thanksgiving at the San Luis Resort this year. The Jazz Brunch buffet was over the top amazing, something for everyone. There was a large assortment of breakfast foods, omelets, waffles, crepes etc, but we went straight to the salads and antipasto -- and the most excellent choice of fine cheeses, jams, sauces, and...

Our last time before this we visited was last December. We thought it was good then and it's even better now!!! The workout room is small, but had super advanced technological workout equipment, a variety of complimentary snacks and beverages, extremely nice bathrooms, and nice staff! The pool is seriously like a dream, heated in the winter with colorful lights.... More

My fiance surprised me with a weekend getaway in Galveston by making reservations at The San Luis Resort Presidential Suite, which is very pricey. We checked in and received our room key, asked if there was someone that could help with our luggage, we were told no, they were short staffed,..OK? We went to our room, the carpets were soaked...
