My family and I took shelter from Hurricane Laura, thankful it missed us. With that being said, I have to say.. What a wonderful experience we had under the circumstances. The resort is breath taking, the staff is outstanding. We felt safe and truly cared for. The Front desk team was amazing, greeting us with a warm welcome and letting us know to not hesitate should we need anything at all. I will definitely be back!

Ahhhmmaaazzing! Myself and my husband literally cannot say enough wonderful things about the hotel,the amenities, the FOOD and most importantly their staff; in particular Danielle, Maddie, Sara, Thomas, Rocio, Ivan, and Thomas. If I could list/remember all the names of the staff we met during our trip I would. And let us not leave out BERNARD! The piano player/singer at the hotel's restaurant The Steak House! Talk about magnificent entertainment and food! As well, the Bistro served up several wonderful meals for us, as did The Grotto! All right in the hotel! The shops in the hotel were fabulous and Martha took amazing care of us. Candice and Isabel at the hotel Spa were FABULOUS as were Mark and Laura! The pool is amazing, the ocean view was gorgeous and the top notch service was out of this world. A much needed vacation for my husband and I! We simply cannot say enough! Oh! And go to Flip Flops in Galveston if you dare to venture from this fabulous hotel (it seriously is a resort you dont need to leave) but if you do, Flip Flops is right on the beach, and serves the best Red Royal Shrimp (huge!) and fish tacos you will ever taste in your life. Period. And the San Luis concierge hooked us up for a ride there, AND the Fisherman's Wharf! Galveston oh Galveston ... now I know why Glenn Campbell sang that song. I'm pretty sure he'd of sung about the San Luis Resort if he was still around. :)
