This was our second stay at the Galvestonian. We first booked a condo here a year ago based on the reviews on tripadvisor, and we are so glad we did. We even booked the exact same condo (#914) the second time around. This is a 12 story building with 16 individually owned condos on each floor. The building is on the beach with a walkover to cross the dunes, but no street to cross to reach the beautiful beach. The beach is big and clean (someone rakes the area every morning) and there are chairs and umbrellas you can rent for $30/day. We knew our unit had an umbrella in the closet from last year, so we just brought our own chairs to get our own setup on the beach for free. Beach towels are included and can be found in the lobby as you walk out to the heated pool, hot tub, or beach. The property also has two tennis courts, a basketball hoop in the corner of the tennis courts, fitness center, bicycles, outdoor shuffleboard, picnic tables with grills, and a firepit area where they will set up and clean up your 2 hr s'more session for $40. The units are individually owned so choose your unit carefully as some are more updated than others. Ours had a king in the master and two twins in the second bedroom. The bedding was wonderful and the kitchen nicely equipped. In fact, we ate all of our meals except for one dinner at the condo. The front office staff is very nice and check in and out was a breeze. We had one of the toilets stopped up but that was quickly taken care of while we played a game of tennis. Be sure to ask for the "stay 3 nights pay for 2" promotion, which makes your stay not only first class but also economical. Definitely the best place to stay in Galveston - we will be back!
