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 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

I stayed four nights on a business trip. The music from the pool/ bar could be heard in the rooms until the wee hours of the morning. When I complained, there was nothing that could be done. I was told that the music usually continued until everyone left the bar. They would not change rooms unless I paid considerably more... More

Wonderful hotel and condos! Enjoyed the pool and the spa. My daughter treated me to a Spa treatment and it was so wonderful. Lesley was a joy and I will certainly go back and recommend her to any one who like superb service,

We stayed 3 nights, the room was great fully renewed awesome view from the 7th floor, the staff was vert friendly and helpful!! Pool was very clean and very secure. The only "con" i can find is that there is no shade where to sit while next to the pool, they have cabins that goes from $300 per day!!

This is in no way a five star hotel. Obviously they can't get it together. Very disappointed. Showed up for Labor Day weekend after a long drive in from Austin. It was rainy but nothing crazy. No one offered to help us with our bags and the front desk told us if we wanted to valet he could call security... More

For the last six years I've visited this resort with every year getting worse and worse! I'm not sure if the CEO/Owner of this resort was too busy planning his other properties but San Luis has gone down! For the price of this "resort", the guest rooms are decorated old fashioned and the contemporary rooms you could just tell that... More

This will cost money, it is not cheap, but it is beautiful. Every room is overlooking the gulf of Mexico, with great sun rises, great views. The pool is nice with a bar in it. Kids love it also. And the hotel is very nice with nice people working there.

This hotel needs a lot of work, the front desk staff is very rude, the rooms and restaurant are very outdated even for Galveston standards and definitely not very clean, the pool area is small and crowded. I would not recommend this hotel.
