The grounds are pretty, the pool and wait staff at the pool were amazing. The steakhouse was excellent. There were 4 adults and 1 child on this trip ( day two there would be 2 more children). A suite was booked when we got there, we had a "suite", the room had 1 king size bed and a small pull... More

It's true, you get what you pay for and The San Luis is worth every cent! From service, to the pool, to the room views, to the parking lot even, it excels. The kids never tire of the waterfall slide, the main pool is spacious and the swim up bars are very well done, blending in naturally to add to... More

We have stayed at Moody Gardens, The Gálvez and although the hotel could use updating in many rooms and is a bit high priced it is the best hotel for the money. I honestly won't stay anywhere else. High $$$$$ but best on the beach

In mid July my family stayed at The San Luis Resort in Galveston. This was not our first stay with this resort and I have to say I was a little disappointed. The good: The resort is beautiful and well maintained and they are coming along on building The Villas. We ate all three restaurants and never had a bad... More

We have stayed many, many years at the San Luis in Galveston but I'm sad to say it has gone down hill. We spent the weekend on the Club Ten Level which is one of the most expensive rooms and had a horrible experience: on our reservation confirmation we were TOLD we could check in at noon and then waited...

My husband & I have been to the San Luis Resort several times. It is heaven on the beach. There is a heated pool with a swim up bar overlooking the beach. We go the 1st weekend of December which is the" Dickens on the Strand" celebration. It is the most romantic place to go in the winter. All the... More

Nice hotel. Kids loved the pool and the room was nice. Little out dated but it was clean. Loved that we had an ocean view. Pool was very nice and clean, and the slide was a hit with the kiddos. We will be back on our next vacation to Galveston.

Loved our stay at the San Luis!! The entire staff was friendly and helpful! We spent most of the time in the fabulous pool!! Loud music + cocktails=great time!!! My only complaint is that the pool bar did not open until 11:00!!

I thought everything was great. We spent our honeymoon at this resort and it was lovely. We got the romance package and I loved it. They offered events such as yoga which was held outside (which was great). The breakfast and room was good. The H2O pool was beyond amazing. The waitress, Zaida was attentive.
