Positives: fresh looking buildings; 5-8 minute walk across road to beach; staff friendly and attentive.
Places for improvement: in this age of technology, the fact that I had to walk up to the registration building/ wifi lounge to GET wifi, seems a little outdated; there are no laundry facilities in the lodge so I went to the local laundromat (washateria in Texan) to wash clothes and guess what?! THEY had wifi!!
Due to mobility issues and the resort was only made aware of this at checkin (so not their fault), we were placed right beside the stairs in building 8 on the 1st (which is NOT ground level) floor....unfortunately other guests having no idea that anyone else was staying there, clomped (yes, I said clomped) up and down the stairs like a wandering herd of elephants day in and day out. At night, it was annoying at best. Not the fault of Silverleaf but something to take note of.
All in all a nice resort but I wouldn't say quiet between the LARGE number of screeching seagulls in the area and our location beside the stairs.
The two bedroom unit was adequate though when we arrived, someone was still cleaning the carpet in the livingroom. We dropped our luggage in the 2nd bedroom and left for awhile. When we returned the door to the 2nd bedroom would not unlock and the interior access door had been closed (by the carpet cleaning fellow?). It was locked from the inside. Maintenance was called and the door was forced open. 1)that exterior door lock was not repaired/ replaced while we were there and 2)the livingroom carpet had been cleaned but the 2nd bedroom carpet was stained and dirt. I have no answer for that one.
I would not discourage anyone from staying here but would meantion the above points including the fact that you are about 25 minutes from downtown Galveston and shops/ stores.
