We stayed three nights in May 2014 for a charity golf event, even though another hotel was the official "host" hotel. Many of the participants have opted to stay at the San Luis for a number of reasons: the level of service being the primary. While the room and check in was more than acceptable, the pool side events regarding... More

Upon a Friday afternoon arrival I was surprised to find only 2 desk clerks responsible for the entire 4:00 hotel check-in. WOW - what a line and what a H-O-T lobby with all those people in line. Then one of only three elevators goes down.... made the best of it at this point deciding to entertain happy hour at the... More

On Saturday July 27th our class celebrated with a birthday bash. The staff did an excellent job serving us. The catering manager, Stacie, was very willing to help us in the areas of selecting the menu, the room set-up and the wait staff. The food was tasty and enjoyed by all in attendance. We were in East Mainsail Room. Thank... More

Hubs & I live in the Pasadena/ Clear Lake area- Galveston is a pretty common "go-to" for us... But when a Friend of a Friend offered up their Condo at the San Luis for a very reasonable price, we couldn't say no! Arrived late Friday night, ate at The Steakhouse (pretty much Perfect!). Saturday we spent at Pleasure Pier, w/... More

Staff, restaurants & pool were superb!! VERY DISAPPOINTED in the room. Rate charged was WAY overpriced for the condition of the room. Room was VERY OLD. Bathroom was dirty with dingy, worn towels. No ventilation in bathroom so ceiling dripped on us. Mattress was old and saggy. We kept rolling to the middle all night. Cockroaches crawling on the wall.... More

When RSVP were made we asked for Penthouse with adjoins rooms only to arrive and find they gave it to someone else. We made RSVP for cabana and were told on day of arrival that they don't take RSVP. Andrew the pool mgr was rude and not helpful at all.

I recently visited the San Luis Resort and had an opportunity to dine with friends at Blake's Bistro. The atmosphere was casual, very inviting and had a great view of the hotels pool. The menu had a vast selection, huge portions and surprisingly, moderately priced. The quality and overall taste of the food was outstanding. However, what impressed me and... More

Reservation=fail; the room I originally reserved was taken and we were upgraded to the king suite (yay). King suite was cramped after the air mattress was placed, curtains had stains and the A/C was not working properly. I was also peeved by the waitress at the pool; I'm in the middle of ordering my drinks when she just walked away... More

I have been here many times. The pool is great and the h2o water bar is perfect. It has convention meeting rooms available. Easy walk to the beach. Nice staff. I also do shows here at least once a month year round on average.
