our family of 5 stayed for 3 nights July 2013 and everyone thought the Galvestonion was the best beach vacation experience we ever had. Staff was friendly and competitent. Everything working, very very clean, well-kept, secure, and classy. The pool was always in perfect order; the beach was kept much cleaner of sea weed than most Galveston beaches, and the condo was fantastic--good beds, good decor, kitchen appliances, AC working well, plenty of elevators running, and everything really clean and manicured. Kids 10, 11, and 12 and wife all enjoyed. It is an up-scale, classy place but friendly. I was a hero for finding this place. Pricier than many places, but you get what you pay for in this case!.
I was worried it was a long walk to the beach, but it is really close with boardwalk across dunes. And shower before you enter pool area to wash off sand. This is best pool I've ever been in. Plenty of close resturants near the galvestonion on north end of island easy to get to. Recommend Russo's New York Pizza close by and ArlansMarket(grocery store) both only about 3-4 miles away with easy parking.
