The hotel is very clean,but the services did not meet our expectations this time.We made a reservation in advance and asked if the Grotto’s would open.We were told that all restaurants would be closed except the Blake’s Bistro,so we had Thanksgiving dinner at the Blake’s Bistro because we thought that was the only option available on Thanksgiving without having to leave the resort.The food was cold and blant.We felt sick right after that.Then,we walked down and saw the Grotto’s was packed.We came back to our room to order in-room dining,but it wasn’t available,so we had to take an Uber to Whataburger late at night.We had dinner at the Steakhouse on Friday evening.My husband’s steak was dry and cold.We have been a loyal Landry’s member,so the overall experience was disappointing.

We spent Thanksgiving at The Villas and it was over the top luxury ! Beautiful, interior decor with high end furnishings and fixtures. Each of their 5 villas has its own enclosed hot tub , a private cabana including TV and refrigerator , and a reserved parking place nearby. The beautiful pool , bar, and fire pit right outside your door is shared only by these 5 villas . Staff are absolutely awesome and just a text or call away to meet your every need. We were able to text or call our Villas staff host for food orders, reservations, blankets, luggage , etc and they always responded immediately with a friendly smile and service . Definitely recommend staying here for your next special occasion!

I attended a jazz concert at the convention center and decided to stay the night at San Luis Resort. Very happy with my choice! The hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas!! All the staff I encountered were very nice!! Danielle with valet service appeared bit stressed and I can understand why, however his customer service was great. It was pretty quiet in the hotel which I absolutely loved!! I loved the view from the 14th floor, beach side and the city side. Loved the shops. Bed was comfortable, Room was fresh and clean, but I still sprayed with Lysol. I gave a 4 star rating because the COVID-19 safety measures info needs to be updated and the few hiccups that occurred. Other than that, I will definitely stay again. Oh I forgot about spa service. I had a great deep tissue massage by Joy!! She was very good, excellent technique and pressure! I’ll be back!!!!

The Villas is a place where as a couple it's awesome to get away from it all. From the spacious villa with all the amenities and comfort to the patio hot tub where you can sip you favorite drink while enjoying the out doors. The staff is AMAZING! They truly make you feel like a VIP. You will not regret your stay here

Just returned from my second stay. My dog Jojo and I had an oceanfront room and thoroughly enjoyed the balcony. We had room service a couple of times, which was excellent. We also relaxed in the pool area, where I sipped a pina colada. The property is immaculate overall, as are the rooms. Most staff is very friendly and helpful. If you travel with your dog, you’ll find the little hotel dog park very convenient. Self parking is close to the entrance. The Christmas decor is lovely this time of year. I hope to return in 2022!
