Very nice resort. I really didn't expect it to be what it was. Considering the price I paid I figured it would be pretty standard. However, I was pleasantly surprised. You can literally go to this resort and not have to leave out. They have restaurants, shopping, a spa, a workout facility, and a pool with a swim up bar and grill. I was beyond satisfied. We live nearby so this is great for when we want to go on a quick vacation without paying vacation bucks. The beach is right across the street. Historic downtown Galveston is not too far. There are plenty of tours and activities to get into if you want to stay busy. Very pleasant experience.
"Very Good Hotel but a bit pricey for the location."
The San Luis has everything you want in a hotel by the beach. Nice rooms with a view to the Gulf of Mexico. A very nice pool area and a nice bar you can use for a nightcap. Everything about the place is nice but the price which fluctuates on the higher end. For the price of a week stay at the San Luis you could go to a fantastic hotel in the Mexican Riviera (Cancún, Playa Del Carmen, Tulum, etc). A place where the ocean is as crystal in as it can get and that is far away from the brownish silt that washes up from the Mississippi river into the Galveston waters. But for an overnight stay with a day at the pool, this hotel offers a very nice experience. It is also well above the other hotels in the island in terms of luxury and amenities. Definitely worth checking out.
"The Villas are amazing!"
We decided to stay in the Villas last weekend for a last minute getaway, and boy were we pleasantly surprised! It was a very personalized experience from beginning to end. Ozzy, the villa manager, took great care of us as did the bartenders, Michelle and Blanca. The attention to detail in the decor of the villa was amazing, we even had pillowcases monogrammed with our intitals! We will be back as soon as we are able, we are Villa bound from here on out.
"Spring break "
We had great time. The Hotel was clean. The only 2 issues were our bathroom sinks would not drain. We called Maintance to fix it but they never showed. Also when we checked out I had a much higher tab from the pool. I was told it will be resolved. However it was not. I'm still waiting for a refund to my credit card.
The San Luis Resort is a great hotel with high quality all trough out the rooms, food and service level of the staff. However I would suggest that you spend most of your time within the Resort as the beach and surrounding areas are not in the same level as the hotel.
