We stayed over Easter weekend with my sister-in-law. She come ms often and had great things to say. We were greeted politely and loved the service. We stayed on Club 10, but did not receive our champagne from the front desk, nor did we get our wrist bands. The room was clean, a nice size and view could not have...

Checked in to San Luis Resort at 4PM and valet parked the cars. Asked the bellman to please rush our bags to our room, the bellman gave us a card to give to the front desk on check-in. Check-in was smooth but when we arrived at our room the door was locked from the inside. A Maid was inside the...

The San Luis lived up to it's reputation and reviews. The customer service is excellent. Our room on the 14th floor had been recently updated with a modern vibe. The view of the gulf was spectacular. The grounds and landscaping are immaculate. The pool area is a natural draw for fun and relaxation. The only possible downside was the volume...

I had my and two other friend's birthday party at the San Luis in the grand ballroom. Everything was perfect. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything was perfect for us and our guests. We had dinner in the Steakhouse and the food and service was exceptional. The weather was beautiful and relaxing...

Moment you drive up you are greeted with exceptional service by David at valet. He makes sure that everything is taken care of and you are ready to relax the moment you step out of your car.

My wife planned a trip with friends and surprised me for my birthday. First, let me talk about the bar H2o. I had the best waitress I have ever experienced in a bar. Her name was Dayana Sosa. I recommend if you go to the bar or lounge out by the pool, you request her. She was a blast, really...

We stayed here for a getaway before school started back up. The entire family enjoyed every second. The pool is great and my kids loved the slide. Big comfortable rooms, very clean. Great in house dining.

First off let me say that they have taken time and energy into making the lobby and pool look very nice. The staff was helpful and the food was pretty good. As far as the room goes... Not so much. We booked last minute and there was only a standard room left. Very dark and dated. A bit depressing too....

Second time to stay at San Luis in the last 10 years. As usual, top notch service, facilities, and cleanliness. We arrived early and were able to start using the pool, making our vacation much more enjoyable. The weather was cruddy some of the time, but the San Luis made the difference by providing a bright, clean, and friendly place...
