My family stayed here for 4 days. We had a very homey feeling. The grounds are beautiful, very well manicured. Pool was always clean and big. Our condo has been updated with new bath and kitchen. Plenty of space. (Could use a new sofa) We had a wonderful ocean view. The area has had a lot of seaweed this summer but it did not bother us at all. The Galvestonian kept it raked off main area. Unlike the west end. Very Sandy beach.
Very secluded area. The beach and pool areas were never crowded. This is one of the quietest places weve ever stayed. No hallway noise from people walking and slamming doors. No water noise from next door rooms like most hotels these days.
The employees were all so wonderful and polite. The maid service was great each day as well.
Go ahead and reserve an umbrella set. It's worth the $30.00.
The location is perfect. You are secluded yet just a short drive from the historic pier, shopping and the strand.
Stop at Target and grab groceries. We actually liked having a full kitchen to cut down on eating out.
We will definitely be back! Soon I hope.
