    Historical Traveler Reviews The San Luis Resort Galveston

    The Highlight of our Vacation

    from

    During our vaction where we travelled for approximately 8 days, we stayed in 4 hotels including the Doubletree in New Orleans. I must admit that this was the absolute best. Galveston was not even a part of our iternary. We were coming through Beaumont, Texas on our way to HOuston and decided to take the Ferry to Galveston to spend the night.

    It was truly a wonderful night that we spent at the San Luis. My children want to return for an extended vacation next year. The service was great and provided with true genuiness. It makes me miss my home state of Texas even more. Thank you for a wonderful stay. It was truly the highlight of our vacation. We will be back next year, hopefully we won't have to leave early because of an approaching "Claudette."

    Great Weather and Great Service

    from

    My family and I arrived a couple of hours before check in time, which is 4:00 p.m. The front desk was very helpful. We were pre-registered and able to have use of all the hotel amenities. Great view of the beach, easy access to beach, great pool and water slide. My kids did not want to leave. We decided to stay at San Luis Hotel, because of all the great review it received.

    Quality and customer care unsurpassed

    from

    My husband and I have been to Galveston 4 times in the past year and each time we have stayed at The San Luis Resort and for very valid reasons. It is by far the number one hotel in Galveston not only because of its beautiful and spacious entrance and lobby, but the pool and surrounding ambiance is fabulous, the Steakhouse restaurant is superb (if you can are able to get reservations - we made ours months ahead), and the rooms are lovely and clean and the balconies of course gave us an incredible view of the ocean. To say that the customer service and the staff's treatment of the guests who stay at this hotel is outstanding would be a serious understatement. We have made it our home away from home when we go to Galveston and we cannot wait to go again!!

    You're Right, It's the Best in Galveston!

    from

    My family and I go to Galveston at least once every other year, as we live in a suburb of Dallas. We love the beach and prefer Mexico (Cancun, Playa del Carmen, etc.) to all other beaches. However, when we can't get to Mexico, we get our fix of the ocean and beach by driving down the highway a few hours away in Galveston. We have gone for years and years, and The San Luis is by far the nicest and most consistently well-kept hotel of any of the others there. The Moody Gardens is very nice and actually newer, but is off the beaten path so to speak, and not across from the ocean. The San Luis can also be very expensive, but if you watch for specials, they can be as reasonable as some of the others. The other nice hotel, though not my favorite, is the fairly newly renovated historic Hotel Galvez. However, our fav continues to be the San Luis!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Loved it!

    from

    Our family of 4 stayed at the San Luis in May 2003. This hotel is absolutely beautiful and extremely well kept. The rooms are large and very nice with a very comfortable bed and nice ammenities in the room. The pool area is very well kept with a nice water slide for the kids and the bar provides pool service. This hotel is walking distance from the IHOP and Rainforest Hotel and is the absolute best place to stay in the entire area. Spring for a gulf view and things will be perfect!

    Galveston's Very Best

    from

    We stayed at the San Luis for two days, a party of four adults and five children, 17 to 3 over Easter holidays - it was a wonderful experience. The hotel had a first class petting zoo and easter egg hunt for guests. Spacious rooms w/balcony views, good food, excellent drinks and service. Grandchildren spent hours on the pool slide and one had the feeling of being somewhere with the beautiful, lush, highly maintained hotel grounds - right next door to the new Rainforest ride and volcano which we watched erupting from our balcony every evening. We have stayed at others, but nothing compares to the San Luis hotel and staff.

    Excellent

    from

    The staff at the San Luis were extremely friendly and courteous. The rooms were spacious, beautiful, well-maintained, and clean. The view from the balcony was great. Every room has an ocean view, so you'll get the view, too. The location is reasonably convenient to Galveston's attractions.

    Awesome

    from

    The San Luis is awesome. You cannot find a better place to stay. I travel a lot with my work and we have never stayed any place better! The staff is very professional but congenial at the same time. All you do is ask and it is done. #1 place for relaxation and comfort! You must try it!

    Felt like royalty

    from

    From the minute the valets greeted us, parked our car and brought our luggage to the room, we knew we were in for a treat. The elegant promenade was beautifully decorated for the winter holidays, with soft piano music in the background. Registration was a snap and we embarked on our visit in no time at all. Everyone remembered our names, from the front desk to the wait staff to the cocktail lounge to the gentlemen in charge of our car. Rooms were beautiful. The grounds were, too. The service in restaurants and cocktail lounge

    was impeccible, and the food was delicious. I can't say enough. I want everyone to go there.

    Absoloutely outstanding

    from

    Everything was first rate and very professional for a romantic weekend with my girlfriend. We decided not to go on a cruise as planned. Food excellent, Room excellent, View from the balcony excellent.

    ... Today the tour took us to SAIL, Shuttle Avionics Simulation Laboratory. In this, there is a complete replica of the Shuttle's avionics and engineering so that they can test and simulate all the avionics. After a short stop we then visited historic mission control, the original not a replica mission control for all Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Skylab missions. Directly below us was the actual live working International Space Station mission control, which ...

We went to the late movie (9 pm ... lol), which we haven't done in ages because I usually fall asleep. ;o) There were so many previews, I almost fell asleep before the movie even started! But I didn't, and it was a good movie so I stayed awake for the whole thing! :oP
