I've stayed here before and that is why I suggested to my ten clients this hotel when we discovered our cruise ship would be delayed due to weather. At first they balked, afraid of the price, but there was special and we are so thankful we stayed there. We loved the pool area and the rooms were clean. My only...

This place has it all. Great service and fantastic views. Original reservation was for 2 nights but we extended 1 additional night. The bed was incredible and the room service was just what we needed after a long day at the beach. 5 stars all around

We did a VERY last minute trip to Galveston (our first trip) and chose this hotel from reviews on trip advisor. Our original plan was to arrive there late and then get a better feel of Galveston and make a decision of where to spend our time. WOW were we pleasantly surprised on our arrival! The outside landscaping was AMAZING...

The pool area is beautiful complete with a swim up bar (in the adult only area), ample chairs in which to relax, and heated water. The rooms are tastefully decorated; many have an ocean view. Beautiful, elegant hotel!

My granddaughter and I enjoyed the spa. We had two treatments each, the Marine Detox Wrap and the Marine Sea Salt Scrub. The staff was incredibly attentive to our needs from the warm welcome and throughout the day. Our therapists were amazing, pampering us like royalty. A relaxing, refreshing, rejuvinating experience.

The rooms here are comparable to Holiday Inn type rooms. Nothing special at all. Your paying to be across the street from the ocean and every room does have a view of the ocean.

The San Luis Resort is soooo nice. It's only a hour away from Houston, but a world away. The resort pool is heated and delightful. Be sure to sign up for a Landry' Select Club membership before coming because they own everything down here in Galveston!
