Beautiful pool. This is an outdoor bar. The bar (and hotel) owned by Landry's and have great gulf views. They blocked off part of the seating for a group party. Service was quiite good. Patron margharitas quite tasty.

I don't think there is much to say here. I will tell you that it was over $900 dollars for two nights, and these were the luxury accommodations...the gulf view came with rotting pipes and a rusty A/C unit across the ratty roof. Also, there was a hole in the shower plugged with some toilet paper. I have stayed in...

The San Luis lived up to its reputation as a great place to stay in Galveston. The hotel is clean and beautiful, and the food was very good, even at the pool. The pool area is pretty and the pool was well heated, which made it possible for us to swim multiple times despite cooler and windy weather. The spa...

The room I was in had a great view of the ocean and beach. The room, and the whole hotel for that matter was extremely clean. Every employee that we came across was very nice and helpful. I didn't see a single employee without a smile.

Absolutely fantastic! The pool and resort are great. The H2O pool bar is unique on the island or in the Houston area. The lobby bar had great entertainment on weekends with "Bernard" on the keyboards and his other band members after the dinner crowd. The staff is fantastic and make your stay feel special. Customer service is first class. All...
