What a great experience. Smiles and service all around us. Great room! Great Restaurants. Carlos the bartender was splendid and fun. Rocio at the front desk was more than helpful and patient and such a smile. Our server in The Steak House SH JD was so fun. He made our dinner outing so worth it and the meal was amazing....

Somebody pinch me. Actually, don't pinch me- I don't wanna wake from this dream. I think I found heaven on a resort. Everything I imagined, but more than I expected. A dominant structure, hard to miss -Located along the seawall. Something like a mansion on the beach. Looks like the beginning to a beautiful movie. My only regret was Having...

This hotel was GREAT! The facilities were spectacular, the rooms were spectacular, and the location is the best I have seen so far! I know the statements above are in stark contrast to how I rated it overall. Let me explain. On one of the nights I was there, a person vandalized 9 vehicles in their parking lot (mine being...

We stayed at this beautiful hotel on Jan 1st for a cruise we took out of Galveston. Only 2 complaints one is with your cleaning staff. We came back to our room about 10:30-10:45 pm and noticed the room right next door had a cleaning cart in front of the door. I am not sure why at that time of...

My husband and I come to Galveston several times a year and have stayed in all of the nicest hotels. But every year on my birthday, there's no question where we stay; The San Luis Resort can't be beat!

This was a great hotel. It was beautifully decorated for the Holidays and the staff was very friendly. The room was nice and spacious and had a great view of the ocean. I ate downstairs at the hotel restaurant and the food was delicious! I will definitely stay here again!

Nice modern decorated hotel. Rooms have balconys over looking the gulf. Hard to figure out how to get into hotel. Have to park in back and take elevator to lobby. Not well marked. There on business and wifi was almost non existent. Pool area was beautiful. Had a great outside bar. Bar inside very noisy.

Stayed at the San Luis Resort for a week in January to participate in a small conference group. The hotel staff was uniformly helpful and gracious. Rooms viewing the Gulf of Mexico are quiet and spacious. Furnishings are well kept and the internet access is quite good. Hotel restaurants are easy to access and the food is tasty. Prices are...

I support convenings for a living. I chose the San Luis for its price and proximity to the Gulf. I could not have been happier with the service and accommodations. Every single staff person was so supportive, that I actually heard compliments from my participants and not a single complaint. The food was delicious and every need was cared for....
