Took our family of 7 to the Galvesonian. We rented room 312, which really had enough space with the couch bed for up to 9 people. It was well decorated, very clean, and a real gem. We loved our stay here. The front desk was super friendly. We did have to wait an hour past check-in for our room. The beach was less populated than other areas. It's Galveston so don't expect a super sand-white beach. The beaches do have a smell and do have seaweed but the resort does it's best to keep the beach clean. You can rent umbrellas but we decided to take our own canopy and chairs since we have a large group. It was perfect. The resort has plenty to do-- tennis, basketball, towels, and floats for the pool. The pool was very nice as was the hot tub. We actually went a few miles down the road to the Kroger and stocked up on breakfast items and a few snacks. Within a few miles are good restaurants- The Sunflower Cafe for lunch and Saltgrass for dinner. Also, the room had flashlights for crab hunting at night. The crabs we saw are small but it was still super fun for the kids. Free wi-fi and satellite tv in the room too. All in all, a great place to stay. Would stay here again! Wish it were a little less expensive but it was worth it.
