We stayed for a week from May 15 -22. We were all very pleasantly surprised at how nice our condo was. I had called ahead and requested handicapped accessible facilities because I had heard about the stairs at some of the buildings. We were given a condo in one of the Presidential buildings that all had elevators. We were given a 2 bedroom lockout unit, which was very nicely furnished, very roomy and even had a second small kitchen in the second bedroom lockout room, plus a stackable washer/dryer. The building we were in was some distance from the pool, miniature golf course, playground and the office/grill/activity center, but we didn't mind driving to use those facilities. I loved that there was wireless internet at the activity center and also one computer available for use. The burgers at the grill were very good, home-style burgers. That is the only thing we ate there, but they also offer breakfast, pizza and other fast food items for purchase. The beach is directly across the street, and there is a nice, small parking lot to park and then walk onto the beach. This was our first time to Galveston, and we really enjoyed our time on the beach, which they did clean occasionally. We appreciated the fact that this was a private beach area and no big crowds of people to contend with. We were also surprised to find that there were restaurants (you must eat at Nates in Jamaica Beach) and small grocery stores within a couple of miles from the resort. I had gotten the impression from previous postings that we would be somewhat isolated and far from any amenities. So it was nice to find that this was not the case. We made use of the grills outside our building to grill steaks, also. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and all agreed we are looking forward to coming back to Galveston soon to stay at the Silverleaf Seaside Resort.
