This was a great trip. The hotel was nice, scenery was amazing, and customer service was beyond what I could've asked for. We ended up going to dinner at The Steakhouse the night before we left (today) and let me tell you. Besides the food being exceptionally good, the service provided from Skylar Shultis was more than amazing. Not only did he come and talk to you on a personal level, but he actually cared about more than your food needs. It was my birthday, so when he found out, he got me a birthday card, and at the end of the dinner even got us a cheese cake that said happy birthday on it as well as a chocolate martini on the house. This man deserves more than a raise and he really does deserve it. Thank you again for how well you treated us and for helping my birthday be even more amazing. We'll definitely be back just for Skylars service, each and every year!

San Luis was absolutely amazing ! We stayed on the 16th floor, the PentHouse Floor the VIP Ocean View Room and it was absolutely gorgeous. The view was amazing and my husband and I enjoyed it !!! The manager there Debbie Martinez accommodated us with an early check in and late check out. The spa was amazing as well- everything about this hotel is spot on !! We go to Galveston almost every weekend and like to explore and this place was nothing nothing short of one of the most memorable trips in Galveston !! We will be back for sure.

We were married at The San Luis Resort 18 years ago on September 18th, so we decided to take a anniversary trip back to where our special day was. When we got married there it was so magical and beautiful a true luxurious resort. Fast forward 18 years and our experience was terrible the bed was so broken down it caved in the middle almost touching the floor there was literally no support underneath it, the ac was on the fritz and I know this because my husband is a HVAC tech we had to keep the air on 63 just to keep it comfortable. The neighbors next door partied all night along with smoking cigarettes and marijuana in their room screaming and hollering not to mention the filth language. I am so disappointed in how run down everything is now and the lack of compassion from the front desk as I was voicing my experience to them about this situation while I was checking out. All I got was we’re sorry.which blew me away because I know the owner takes pride in his customer service. We spent over $1,500 to stay here and today we beat down and exhausted because we did not and could not sleep, I had to lay at the foot of the bed long ways because it was so uncomfortable ( the floor would have been more comfortable… seriously) and this was a VIP PH room on the 16th floor . This was supposed to be a great getaway (which we never do) to walk down memory lane and feel that special feeling that this place once gave me. Boy was I wrong. Tilman should really get his hotel back into shape the way it once was.

This is a wonderful place to relax and re-energize. We stayed here the last weekend in August for our anniversary. The lobby was beautiful, the front desk staff was very friendly and valet attendants were attentive. Lots of restaurant choices whether on site at the resort or nearby on Seawall Blvd. We were on the Club 10 level which is an adults only floor. Our room package included daily breakfast delivered to our room each morning. Our room was a little worn and the bathroom was horrible. The seal on the tub/shower door was non-existent. Water was all over the floor when we showered. The whole room could use a makeover. That being said, we'd still come back here in a heartbeat. Don't forget to treat yourself to a spa treatment too. We had a couples massage which we both agreed was amazing. Beautiful views of the beach from our room. We highly recommend staying here when you visit Galveston.

This place is absolutely amazing and totally met our expectations and more. We did not want to fly or go out of the country due to Covid we decided to try this place out. I am so glad we did. It felt like we was out of the country or something they way this place is set up. Danielle and the rest of the crew were amazing and very attentive. I cannot say enough good things about this place. If you want the VIP experience this is it. Has 5 villas 2 couples per each, your own private pool and each villa had its own hot tub over looking the private pool. Private bar and complimentary breakfast and more. it was just absolutely amazing. We will definitely be back!
