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. She was responsive to every one. It was a healing and relaxing gift to me. I trust she will be rewarded by your company accordingly. She if a true professional... More

I visited the San Luis briefly to celebrate a friend's upcoming wedding. We each got massages and I was lucky enough to get Kimber as my massage therapist. She gave the best massage I've ever had, hands down. I live in Houston, but I think it would be worth the drive down to the seawall to book an appointment with... 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

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
