“Would stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We stayed through RCI April 14 to 17 and were treated wonderfully. I can't say enough good about the staff and how helpful they were from check in to booking tours. Especially Derek the concierge. Thank you for all your help. We were in a presidential suite thanks to Robert for the upgrade which I understand is the only type that has elevators. And only some have washer dryer. So if you need this you might want to check ahead. I found out if you book through RCI for Friday check in you are not in presidential and no washer dryer. If you book a Saturday check in you are in presidential and the 2 bedroom units have washer dryer not sure about other types. The unit was very nice, newly updated and very clean. Everything we needed was there. Anything we needed extra was brought immediately. The pool is very large but not heated but the kids still enjoyed. There seemed to be a lot going on around the resort but we never participated. I would stay here again. The only con was the walls were paper thin and yes I could hear and tell you the conversation every morning, very early, that my neighbors were having on the other side of the wall that was directly attached to the bed. I even heard them go to the bathroom. Ewww

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age of technology, the fact that I had to walk up to the registration building/ wifi lounge to GET wifi, seems a little outdated; there are no laundry facilities in the lodge so I went to the local laundromat (washateria in Texan) to wash clothes and guess what?!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.

Room Tip: Understand that unless you get into a building qith an elevator, that you are climbing stairs with y...

I have stayed three or four days at a time in the lodges, the suites and the presidential units. This is my favorite GetAway! Across the street, you can walk a wooden bridge over the dunes to a well groomed beach. Both sides of the island are visible from the top level of the presidential units. You can walk to the Bay side from the back of the property. Surfside is clearly visible from most of the property. No one comes into your room without you there. It's still a wise choice to be careful of precious, expensive or pawnable property no matter where you stay. Hard to understand the carelessness of the reveiwer who lost an iPad. Every unit has a whirlpool tub. They are all sufficiently supplied to sleep and serve 6 people. Plenty of towels! A refrigerator/freezer and stove. Three televisions. A balcony.. What's not to love? There is no lift for luggage if you are not presidential. However, if you arrive before nightfall, a porter can usually help you carry your things to your room. Any other time, a security personnel will gladly help. Swimming pool, mini golf, indoor games and arcade - fun for the family!

3rd floor room=72 stairs with no lift for your luggage
Furniture and rooms in disrepair and dirty.
Appliances also in disrepair.
Property management says they want to comp you for the issues, but disappear just as you check out.
Went home disgusted with the ahold experience.

If you want to be near the action, this is not the place. If you want a newer, clean, quiet place with good privacy, this is it. We stayed in one of the President buildings in a very spacious two-bedroom unit. The view from the large balcony looked out towards the Gulf of Mexico while the walkway to the second floor unit had an unobstructed view of the Inland Waterway. The President buildings have elevator access to their three floors.

The staff was excellent and the maintenance staff was outstanding. The maintenance staff saw us unloading in the handicapped parking area and rushed over to help us get our things to the room. The same thing happened when they saw us unloading groceries we bought from the Kroger Market. We had a minor problem with the shower head and maintenance arrived within 20 minutes.and fixed it the first visit.
