We stayed over the holidays and enjoyed the Christmas decorations throughout the hotel lobby!! The room was nice and big with a great view of the Gulf. Appeared clean and well maintained. Convenient to restaurants. Overall, a very good place to stay.

The hotel is beautiful and the restaurants are great however in two nights I got about 4 hours sleep. The first night we checked in late because our event and out AC was not working correctly. I turned it on and 2 hours later when my kids were fast asleep, it was still 75. The unit was LOUD and rattled...

We stayed for the first week of January, so it was chilly, but we still had a very nice time. The hotel is beautiful. The grounds are well-situated and include great amenities! While the area could use more choices in restaurants, the included choices in the hotel are fantastic! The Steakhouse is pricey, but SO delicious! I've never had such...

We were looking for a close, yet romantic place to spend New Year's Eve and found it!! The Villas at The San Luis Resort are truly the best place I have stayed in the Galveston area and one of the best places I have stayed anywhere. They provide a private check in experience where an extremely friendly and efficient member...

I was totally WOWED by the guest service provided here. While my husband (yes husband) was playing in the arcade my wife was shopping in Style Boutique. My wife mentioned it was my birthday to Cindy. Once we got to the room a slice of cake was left for me letting me know HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I can not believe how...

We came for dinner on New Year's Eve with our favourite server, JJ, and were not disappointed. He is always phenomenal. Never overbearing or felt rushed, even when we knew he had to turn the table for the next seating. Everything from the food, to the wine, to the service was exceptional. We came at his suggestion during our last...

The staff was accommodating and respectful. We had so much fun staying here! It is across the highway from the beach. The Texas beaches have never excited me. However, the pool at this place is fantastic. We spent afternoons in the pool and after dinner. At night the pool is lit, warm, and beautiful. They play great music too! We...

The San Luis Steakhouse had the best food I have ever eaten. The service was phenomenal. Our waiter, JJ was amazing! He was extremely personable but not overbearing...only there when we needed him. We talked for about 10 minutes after the meal and we felt like we made a friend. If you're in Galveston, you have to check it out....

This was our second visit to the hotel, and we left vowing to never go again. The hotel is as lovely as can be until there is a problem and the staff and supervisors in our case just make horrible decisions. On both trips we spent most of our time outside and at the pool. On our Labor Day visit...

Overall, it is fine. The place seems to be one of the better properties on the island, if not, the best. The biggest issue is the staff. They all mean well and do try, but not the sharpest group. Even from when I made the reservation, there was a problem. I specifically asked about the pool (Galveston is always great...
