My husband and I stayed a weekend for our 30th anniversary and it was absolutely perfect. We mainly dined in the Steakhouse for dinner and Blake's Bistro for breakfast. The Steakhouse was excellent food and also great service!! Our server was Caleb and he was so funny and awesome! Blake's bistro had a delicious buffet and very nice staff! We... More

Joseph the bellhop, Michael and John David at the pool, Kathleen with hospitality, Jennifer at registration, Kyle, Phydia's caretaker, etc. Every one of these named staff treated our family as though we were at Walt Disney World. They remembered our names and offered assistance immediately. We had an issue with the room's AC unit throughout the day and were given... More

We only live about 15 miles from Galveston but love to have a little get away at the San Luis. it is a beauitful resort and the staff is out of this world. We just stayed 2 nights Sept. 7 & 8th. Heather Hull in the H2O Bar was great. The Gritto is awesome and the Steak House is the... More

My family and I visited the San Luis again this past month and once again everything was perfect. At the front desk, we were greeted by a gentleman by the name of William-Paul. Anytime we had a question or request we were always answered with "ABSOLUTELY!", "NO PROBLEM!", or "YES SIR!". Room service was always on time! Anytime I called... More

I stayed many times here at San Luis, I love the great view, their swim up bar and don't mind the loud music. Everything else is anything but consistent. Granted I only stay on the VIP levels (15th and 16th FL), yet the A/C was not cold at all last time when I was here (2 months ago) but today... More

My experience is unique as I NEVER go anywhere alone, yet this past weekend I was in dire need of an escape and wasn't up for companions. This was totally "a first" for me...going off to a different city and staying alone. I couldn't go far from home (Katy, TX) as my husband is seriously ill, which is the main... More

We're glad you chose to stay with us to enjoy some rest & relaxation. We apologize for your guest room not being cleaned. When a guest has the sign, "I'm Sleeping In" hanging from their door, that means do not disturb, so our housekeeping team abided by the sign and did not enter your room. Freddy, Laurie & Sean are...

We stayed 2 nights in the club 10. 10th floor with a vip treatment. Yet, we were asked for $75 deposit and had not even a free drink at the bar. The music its played on the pool is too LOUD and goes until at least 2am. And we were on a higher floor...I imagine floors closer to the pool...... More

We only stayed one night in the Club 10 room. Let me start with the pros: valet parking included with room, champagne when you arrive at check in and room also has a small bottle of champagne. The floor off the elevator has bottled water, bowls of peanut/chocolate M&M's, snickers and desserts from the hotel in the afternoon. The mornings... More

It has taken me a while to write this review but since it's been on my mind, it's time. Being from Alberta, Canada, a business trip mixed with a bit of pleasure in and around Houston is a sure bet in the month of March. First time at this hotel but we have been to Galveston on numerous occasions. Lets... More
