Great place, great people, great time. Toria and Eduardo at the pool bar were awesome. The hotel was perfectly decorated for Christmas. Spa, great restaurants, heated pool. What more could a person ask for other than a little more time there.

We were leaving on a cruise having traveled from the Northeast the day before. The San Luis started us off nicely with great accommodations and wonderful pools and restaurants. What sealed the deal was the service. While packing up for the trip to the cruise ship the zipper on my wife 3 suitor gave up leaving us in a panic....

I've had the great opportunity to visit the San Luis many times in my job and have never been disappointed. Yesterday, I called in-room dining as I wasn't feeling well so I ordered chicken noodle soup and orange juice. David recognized by my order that I didn't feel well and suggested hot tea, honey and lemon. He personally delivered my...

I love staying at the San Luis Resort when I have the opportunity to visit Galveston. The rooms are beautiful and you can not beat the view of the beach & gulf. But what makes this resort a step above is the staff! They are the friendliest of any I have encountered anywhere, ensuring that my stay is always top...

We decided to splurge on a nice resort prior to our cruise and the San Luis was well worth it! From the beautiful Christmas decorations, to the room, and particularly the caring staff, our expectations were exceeded! Concierge Jennifer particularly helpful, and remembered me by name-always appreciated! And she helped our friends with a 'suitcase emergency' with a roll of...

This was our 3rd visit to San Luis Resort and Hotel. I have to say this was the most enjoyable time that we've had at this resort so far. My husband and daughter love the amazing heated pool, grotto and slide. The swim up bar for adults has fun and friendly staff that remembered us from our visit last year....

Our stay was the best ever & we are week traveled. The resort was very accommodating in all areas. The staff went above & beyond to make sure that our stay was excellent. We dined @ The Steakhouse & the service there was just as nice. We're looking forward to our next stay. We felt like royalty.

We have been to Galveston several times but this was our first time staying at The San Luis. We stayed over Thanksgiving weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Had a great experience.
