We live in Houston and visit Galveston at least once a month. I have no idea how how in the World this hotel ranks #1 on this list. Wow
We have stayed here twice, once by choice and the other by no other choice. Yes, the hotel is on the beach which is very nice but that where it stops for me.
This isnt a hotel persay...its actually a condominum that some investors rent out their places. Most of they other residents are retirement age.
Also it shouldnt be billed as a "resort" at all. On the premises there are no restaurants, no bar, no spa, no room service just an old pool that has no wait serviced, no cabannas just some loungers. Keep in mind also that you are not very close to all the restaurants, bars and shops either. Driving yes but walking no.
As for the room itself...they seem to have never been remodeled since the place was built. To get to the rooms you have to walk down an outside breezeway kinda like in a motel. the rooms do not connect to the elevator with an airconditioned hallway as you would expect.
We have delt with the reception desk on three visits (2 stays and once to see a unit for sale...that was a waste of time as well) Anyway the ladies at the front arent very friendly or helpful...again think of it like a motel.More
