Our room at the San Luis was a very nice room facing the ocean. The walls are thin though and the door to the room is not sealed off well from the hallway. We could hear the people in the adjoining room in their bathroom. It was a very nice room though. The person that checked us in was not...

The San Luis is always above par! The rooms, staff, food, drinks and atmosphere are always top notch and enjoyable. We were married here 8 years ago and come back as often as possible.

Just Amazing!!!! What a great place to just get away and relax. They have everything here from great restaurants, over the top pool, spa and shopping, but, I think the customer service is what really makes this place special. If you are visiting Galveston this is the place to stay.
