The hotel itself is very nice. However, the seaweed problem this summer was horrible. We did not even set foot on the beach which was very disappointing since we have a pool at home. There was a nice slide at the pool for our kids, and they absolutely loved it. The room was nice, the restaurants were INCREDIBLE. If you... More

We stayed from a Tuesday to Friday in the condo division of this hotel. The condo itself was very comfortable and clean. The bellhop Moses was fabulous and the coffee bar was good...but thats where the GOOD ends! The front desk staff are very rude and not helpful at all. None of the staff knows ANYTHING about the condos. We... More

We didn't stay at this hotel, but we did pay a visit to the spa. My bf and I both agreed that our massages were the best either of us had ever received. He had Joy and I had Jack. Both did an excellent job and if Jack was closer to home I would visit him regularly! Highly recommend! The... More

We loved this place. It is in a perfect location on the Island. But you need to be aware the Amazing Steakhouse on site is closed on Mondays always also and Sundays most of the year!! It is open between Memorial Day and Labor Day during the summer. We were very disappointed when we found that out. Since my weekends... More

Okay, I was really going to wait to write this review but since it's 2:30 and the drunks have been slamming their doors since the pool closed at 2:00 a.m., I'm awake and thought what the heck. We've been here for three nights in a 15th floor "suite" which we've paid dearly for, which is actually a regular hotel room... More

The San Luis Resort is a fun place to stay, especially if you are on vacation - the Galvestonians are so friendly. The pool was always hopping and everyone seemed to be having fun, although the water in the pool appeared cloudy most of the time, yet it could have been the volume of people in a small pool -...

If you are staying in Galveston I highly recommend this hotel. It's decorated really nice, and the pool is a lot of fun. You can always tell how good the hotel is based on the staff. They never make you feel awkward and are always professional. There is a restaurant on site, but I did not get to try it.... More
