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...

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...

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...

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.

First off there are a couple of really good things about the San Luis. First, the food is absolutely amazing and secondly our waitress Ellie at the pool was simply phenomenal. I received a wake-up call this morning at 6 o'clock only problem is I didn't order one. Not that it really matters because the bed has not been replaced...

We were recommended to stay at the San Luis and we are very glad we did! This was my mom and my first to Galveston. Location is perfect, we would not have wanted to stay anywhere else. Everything was very clean, from the rooms to all Lobby areas. We were also impressed with how friendly the staff was! Literally everywhere...

My hubby and I came here for his birthday weekend. Nice hotel with great view of the beach! Beach across the street is unusable due to some work being done to it. Still beautiful to wake up to. Grounds are nice with lots of entertainment and rooms are well appointed. The gym is also nice and has enough for a...

I travel roughly 75% of the year, mainly for business. To say that I am disgusted by the treatment of the "manager" on duty on 3/15/17 during my check in time would be a major understatement. While every other employee at the hotel was extremely polite, the manager completely ruined our experience. We attempted to check in at 3:46pm and...

The hotel and steakhouse are wonderful except for one fatal flaw! The dance music blaring out of the distortion (overdriven) speakers. And unfortunately, by 9am if you haven't reserved your spot, all that is left is to sit right under the speakers.

Dear MAddison, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. The H2o pool & bar area is a high energy area most of the time. However, if brought to our attention, I hope we would have turned the music down to make it more comfortable for you and your family during your time with us. Please...
