For Galveston it has excellent access to the beach (I would never stay at one of the hotels across the Seawall from the beach) and for that alone I would return. We went during spring break and the beach was not crowded. I do wonder how crowded the beach would be during the summer due to the public beach access shares the same driveway as the resort.
We LOVED the room (1BR) - it's all updated, clean and nice. Ipod dock. BluRay DVD player. Full kitchen. Beautifully decorated. The view and sound of the ocean is wonderful. It is a brief trip to the seawall for all the "popular" restaurants and attractions on the island. Will definitely return on future trips to Galveston.
