Disappointed from the moment I arrived until the minute I left. I saw many mixed reviews, but booked one night before our cruise the next day. When we arrive we waiting about 5 minutes for the bellman to help with our luggage, but eventually gave up and dragged our luggage uphill to the hotel and then to our room. Generally, that was our experience with most everything over our stay. If you need almost anything while at the San Luis Resort, you should plan to help yourself. It's not the most friendly, nor modern, nor up kept, nor anything to write home about. It is close to the cruise terminal and that's it about it. The Italian restaurant on sight is good, but service was not that great. They have a parrot in a large cage in the lobby which bites at the metal and locks. Apparently, the parrot is still trying to escape and looks jealous that the guests can leave, but it is serving a life sentence.

This hotel is a gem. We wanted to go nearby for a staycation facing the ocean to relax. This hotel delivered just that. The vibes were amazing, the hotel staff is nice. They have heated pool, and hot tub until late night which was great. The swim up bar truly gave us vacation feels for a one night stay. We will definitely return.

The aroma calms you when first entering, it simply keeps getting better from there. Best front staff greeting in the resort! The massage by Navisa was the best I've ever had. She is also tuned in for her clients' best experience. I will be back.

My husband and I spent our 10 year wedding anniversary at The Villas at The San Luis, we were there April 4-7th. We have been visiting the San Luis for over 12 years, we even came on our honeymoon and have raised our boys there every summer over the years. Bianca our coordinator at The Villas was outstanding, very attentive to our needs and made every detail of our anniversary special. When we ventured over to the San Luis Cove on Friday and Saturday Jowell, Roxanne & Mary provided us with outstanding service as well! We have also had the pleasure of service provided by Jowell and Roxanne in the past few years for other special occasions and it was great and comforting seeing their smiling faces again! I also surprised my husband with a couples massage at The Spa San Luis with the help of Bianca. Kimmy the Spa Manager and Kortney made us feel comfortable and added the sweetest touches to our anniversary while Navisa and Shalandra gave us both the most relaxing massages and experience! Upon our arrival and daily departures Reed and Leyyizon were always very friendly and professional! Reed even knocked on our door to let us know it was going to rain soon and asked if we would like to move our car to the garage. Everyone made our Anniversary extra special all weekend, we cannot wait to come back this summer! Thank you all for making it a wonderful and memorable trip!

We had a birthday dinner at the steakhouse. Our server Lezar was amazing, attentive, and very informational. The amount of detail and passion he put into describing the specials amazed us. The food came out pristine, hot and best of all delicious. In top of this the manager John Paul went above and beyond to make our night special and regularly checked on us. We cannot wait to come back!!
