I support convenings for a living. I chose the San Luis for its price and proximity to the Gulf. I could not have been happier with the service and accommodations. Every single staff person was so supportive, that I actually heard compliments from my participants and not a single complaint. The food was delicious and every need was cared for....

We stayed just one night in the villas at the San Luis. We stayed mid week in January so the price was considerably lower than what it would be in season. I asked when we left what the rate would be for the villa in spring or summer and they said it could be double or even triple, so, that...

We have stayed at multiple 4 and 5 star hotels and the San Luis Resort is as good or better than any AAA rated 4 diamond hotel that we've stayed at. We had considered switching hotels based on recent reviews...but so glad we didn't! I didn't think that Disney would really lead us astray. It's not perfect but it's obvious...

Because our lives are very full, busy and always on the run, for the past three years we have selected a Christmas resort gift to each other so we can completely relax, have dining privileges within the hotel, and just enjoy "being" with each other. And we wanted to stay where they go all out in decorating in the wonderful...

The staff were the some of the most welcoming and friendly people we have ever encountered in our travels. We stayed on the VIP floor and loved having breakfast delivered to our room every morning. The heated pool with the swim up bar was really nice. Our balcony provided an unobstructed view of the ocean. We will definitely return.

My parents come to Galveston to celebrate my Dad's 51st birthday. Sara Godwin made their stay so special. Their room had the best view of the ocean and over the pool. The lights from the pool look so pretty at night time. We enjoyed watching the sunset. Saturday when we returned to their room Sara Godwin had left chocolate covered...

Our stay was 3 nights. Wanted something close to Houston just to getaway after the holidays. One of the reasons for staying at the San Luis was the heated pool. The temps for the week we were there got into the high 70's. It was PERFECT!! Our room was on the 16th floor and would have been an excellent view...

We paid extra for a corner room to have two window views. The window looking towards the ocean gave us a beautiful view of the roof below, and the side window was so dirty we could not see out it at all. The king size bed was a very old spring mattress and very uncomfortable. In fact, all of the...
