The whole resort is beautiful. The condo was nice, clean and well equipped.
Sandra B. Oct 2022
The resort is beautiful. The condo is spacious. It is close to the elevator and fitness room. I am 5 ft 4 inches so the dining area furniture was to tall. I bought 2 grab bars for the shower and tall bathtub. I will look for another unit next time.
Alan N. Oct 2022
The lazy river and pool area.
Crystal C. Sep 2022
The condo was very clean and beautiful! The complex had so many amenities including an arcade that my 4 year loved and a Jungle room that my 2 year loved. The indoor pool was a huge hit when it got really windy outside. We will definitely coming back. There is also an amazing restaurant across the street that is very convenient.
Denise L. Sep 2022
I love everything about Diamond Beach Resort I’ve been here 4 times and this is now my to go place Unit 429 is my favorite so far if you’ve never been here you must try the amenities are outstanding
Marianne W. Sep 2022
It was a great place to stay for our first trip to Galveston!
Toni C. Sep 2022
Family oriented resort activities. Very convenient location. Excellent customer service on site
Denise L. Sep 2022
This property is my new go to it is more expensive than some but we’ll worth it I’ve stayed here 3 times and never dissatisfied
JAN P. Aug 2022
Huge layout with more space that we needed. Great balcony for sitting out and enjoying the Gulf breeze and sounds of the waves crashed into the sea wall. Loved all the pools and the lazy river just wish we'd had more time there. Very comfortable bed and very clean unit. My only suggestions would be to provide a light-weight cotton blanket for the bed as it got chilly at night; put the coffee cups and wine glasses in a lower cabinet so that they are reachable (or provide a step stool). I'm 5'3" and couldn't reach either; and lastly to update the living room pictures in the posting because this ugly massive wall unit is GONE and there's better furniture. The dining table is also meant for giants. But over all, it's a great unit and a fantastic spot (Diamond Beach) and wonderful amenities. I'd definitely stay there again.
Denise B. Aug 2022
Had a great time. Love the facilities and the condo. Super clean. I will go again.
Kelly J. Jul 2022
This pics doesn’t do this condo justice. In fact, they need to be updated with current lovely furnishings. The balcony is large and overlooks the lazy river. We were surprised how refreshing the water was in both the lazy river and cascading pool, in this hot July weather. My husband and I had a great time at Diamond Beach Condo resort. I highly recommend!
Sherry C. Jul 2022
Nice condo. Stayed for a long weekend over the 4th of July holiday. Easy process to reserve, check in and check out. Property has lots of fun amenities. Our favorite was the lazy river and swim up bar. Beach access but a bit of a challenge if you are having to take shade, chairs , etc. would stay again.
Diana B. Jun 2022
Very nice , plus you have the beach , huge pool and lazy river , all in one , no need to drive every where
William M. Jun 2022
We have stayed at Diamond Beach a total of four times and in this unit twice. There is a new owner (the Hamiltons) since our last stay so the furnishings are a bit different. Our daughter was very comfortable on the fold out bed. A very nice unit, good balcony. No problems of note during this stay; just some suggestions. We did not receive any laundry detergent (have gotten enough for 1-2 loads in previous stays). It's helpful when there is a laminated booklet with the on-site amenities, polices, etc. (not a must or a big deal but we had to go to office to inquire about grill/cabana rental price). Bedroom is spacious and nicely furnished although the bed itself was not particularly comfortable. As always, great amenities at Diamond Beach, highlighted by the spectacular pools and lazy river. Game room on 4th floor. Movie room on 3rd floor. Nice gym.
Ronald D. Apr 2022
This was our second trip to Galveston and this unit. We love Diamond Beach Resort! We did tourist things in the morning and relaxed by the pools and lazy river in the afternoon. Diamond Beach has great amenities! We used Galveston Express service to get us from Houston airport to Enterprise car rental. Great option!
Samantha E. Apr 2022
Beautiful property! Loved the amenities. Easy access to the beach. Beautiful condo. I agree with previous reviews that the mattress is too firm! Recommend to upgrade mattress & provide more blankets for pull out bed.
Manager response:
Samantha, we are so glad that you loved our beautiful home, the fantastic location, and the amazing amenities! We appreciate you letting us know that there is room for improvement and have forwarded your feedback regarding the mattress and linens provided to our property manager for consideration. We hope to host you for another great stay soon!
Cheryl R. Mar 2022
Beautiful condo and loved the place! Can’t wait to go back!
Marsha N. Feb 2022
The location and amenities are excellent. Spacious, high-ceilinged, very clean and newly decorated. Very happy with the visit!
Greg C. Feb 2022
The people were helpful, it is clean. It was nice
Michelle K. Dec 2021
We loved everything about this home. Well stocked, very clean, all amenities were great. Beautiful balcony view and nice patio furniture. We will definitely be back only for a longer time!!
Farrah F. Sep 2021
Great location right near everything
Katie Anne O. Aug 2021
We always love Diamond Beach for the superb amenities! 419 was a very large one bedroom condo and we had a blast! Great view of the beach and lazy River and very clean unit. My only complaint is that the bed and pillows are extremely firm. Maybe a topper would help a bit! Everything else was great! Thank you!
Manager response:
We have sent your feedback to the local staff for further review. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and will work diligently with the homeowner to make any updates and repairs. We look forward to hosting you for your next vacation!
Stephanie R. Jul 2021
This is a spacious condo with great views. It was clean and is in a really nice location. You have a great lazy river and pool, as well as a brief walk through a gate and you are on the beach! The cable in the bedroom was not working, so basically there is just a television that you cannot use. Also, the bar and slide are open during limited times, which was only one day during our stay. That was probably the most frustrating part because you have to pay resort fees.
Steve B. Jul 2021
Loved it thank you!
AVERIE H. Jul 2021
The condo was so spacious and so clean! Loved that you can see the ocean from the patio and the pools light up at night! We brought plenty of water and beer for the fridge! The bedroom had no windows- so daytime naps and sleeping in was so easy! The closet was huge so we could fit all our big suitcases and hang up dresses! The bathroom had a lot of space for makeup and hair supplies to get ready for date night! We definitely felt like we were on vacation!
Holly B. Jun 2021
Condo felt like a home. Everything nice. Resort run very well. Love the lazy river..
Ruane T. May 2021
Luxurious amenities, nice enough facility, friendly helpful staff, fabulous view, but, the shower curtain was too short, it did not reach the top edge of the tub, there was a spot of mold in the corner where the tub top meets the tile, the bath tub mat was moldy and needed to be replaced and the shower was very slippery without it, and most of the bulbs in the bedroom ceiling lights were out.
Manager response:
Hi, Ruanne! Thank you for telling us about your visit. The shower curtain and bath mat have been replaced, and we have provided the necessary follow-up training to our housekeeping team regarding these problems. The light bulbs have been replaced. We hope to see you again!
Brian D. Apr 2021
The whole resort is clean and elegant. It was a pleasure to stay here.
Joan F. Apr 2021
Treated myself to a solo trip to Galveston after staying home for a year. This place was perfect. Loved the easy access to the beach and the sea wall, the shady patio with an awesome view of the water, and the comfortable condo. I would definitely recommend this place. One small note - there was only one roll of toilet paper. Otherwise, it was perfect.
DEBORAH W. Mar 2021
The condo was very clean. The view was perfect.
Brice M. Mar 2021
Great water view. No sunset or sunrise. Lots of activities, but during our stay the pools were not available. Verey nice unit. I would go back
Manager response:
Brice, thank you for staying with us. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the view and home! We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the pool closures. All pools and hot tubs are temporarily inaccessible due to damages from the winter storms until further notice. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you in the future!
Laurence M. Dec 2020
My wife and I had great time. Excellent kitchen and living area. My wife also liked soaking tub.
Ryan D. Nov 2020
Everything was great.
JAMES H. Nov 2020
Great view
Jeff R. Nov 2020
It was a great condo. The whole resort is first class.
Yketa M. Oct 2020
Simply amazing 🥰, just missing the telescope.
Lorna W. Oct 2020
We love it here and have always enjoyed the view and the birds that fly right by the balcony
Charles V. Oct 2020
It exceeded my expectations
Jessica R. Oct 2020
We had a lovely stay. The unit is very well equipped- the owners thought of many details to make our stay comfortable. The amenities at the resort are nice and the beach is an easy walk. I did not give it a five star because there were many mosquitoes on the balcony and some got into the condo. This was probably due to the tropical storm that occurred a week before. This is an easy fix however which hopefully the owners will get taken care of soon. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
sharon r. Sep 2020
I sat on the deck most of the time it was so pretty.
Catherine R. Sep 2020
1 bdrm good for a couple. Property nice, lots to do.
Michele N. Aug 2020
The condo and the resort were very clean. My husband and I were going on a cruise for our 25 wedding anniversary. Since that was canceled decided to book to stay in galveston. We had issue with the air conditioning from the moment we arrived driping from the ceiling large amount of water call desk the brought us a bucket and said to dump it when full. The dripping noise was crazy. Then the next three days we have to be available for repair men. Not what you expect to deal with when you are paying to relax. Then the third day of waiting and dealing with all the repair men we had two leaks instead of one just decide to add another container instead of trying to get fixed. The air never worked correctly. Several people said they have been trying to get this fixed for month. It is really disappointing to deal with this
Manager response:
Hi, Michele! We appreciate your feedback and are so sorry the air conditioner caused so many issues during your stay. It has since been repaired and is working well. Thank you!
Ziad G. Aug 2020
Great building amenities and easy access to the beach. The unit is very nice and well appointed.
Sarah T. Aug 2020
Great location and great amenities! Look foward to booking here again!
jackie t. Jul 2020
we loved it. very convenient location. the amenities are fantastic. def. coming back!!!
Shawn Q. Jul 2020
Everything was perfect! Amazing ocean views from my private balcony, incredible lazy man river and pools on the condo grounds, a two minute walk to the beach where there was plenty of space, and the staff were wonderful!
ANDREA F. Jul 2020
After much disappointment of cancelling our Disney trip to FL, we were able to book this beautiful condo last minute which is only 4 hr drive from us. The condo was spacious for our family of 4, nice well stocked kitchen, great view of the Gulf of Mexico. The lazy river and pools were amazing. Of course due to covid-19, there was no bar or food at the condo site, but was happy to see hand sanitizer everywhere and staff taking precautions. The grounds were well maintained. Parking was a challenge if you had a big truck like ours. Would love to stay again.
Steve D. Jun 2020
Great resort with many activities! We were just steps from the gameroom, spa & fitness center! Our kiddos LOVED the lazy river, waterslide, cascading pools and hot tubs. We wish we had more time to stay so we could have taken advantage of the cinema, spa & wine bar.
Elizabeth T. May 2020
This place is super clean, cute, and accessible! Tight security and friendly staff! Lazy River is AMAZING!
Jonel L. May 2020
The rooms, ammenities, and staff were all great. First rate place to stay, will definately be back soon!
Claudia C. May 2020
Wow! Just what we were dreaming about! Unit 419 took our breath away! Clean, organized and the view was breathtaking... I highly recommend this property and look forward to coming back
Scott R. Mar 2020
The condo and the complex were both very nice! It’s well kept and clean with a nice view.
Keith J. Feb 2020
Just far enough outside the crowd that you have a nice place to retreat to when it is time to get away. Place was clean and well appointed.
Connie C. Jan 2020
It was a wonderful place to stay.
Jennifer H. Jan 2020
Everything was awesome.
Rose F. Dec 2019
A nice getaway to unplug and get some R&R. The property was beautiful, amenities were fabulous, and the view was spectacular! Will definitely go back again.
Lesli A. Nov 2019
It is right on the beach and right in the middle of the Island.
Kimberley S. Oct 2019
I hated to leave.
Alberto L. Oct 2019
It was lovely
Britney A. Oct 2019
The condo was very nice for my daughter and husband. I would stay again. Balcony furniture needs to be replaced. But overall, this was exactly what we needed for our stay.
Karen R. Sep 2019
Being right on the beach was really nice.
Renee I. Aug 2019
This was a great spot with great amenities for children.
Elizabeth L. Aug 2019
Great views
Merlin W. Aug 2019
Had to get a patio door repaired.
Gina L. Aug 2019
I felt pretty good about everything.
Alyssa P. Jul 2019
I wish I owned it.
Cynthia F. Jun 2019
Unit is super clean inside and well maintained with great space. Patio is kind of tucked back in around a curve in the building and while deep, doesn't get a lot of breeze which equals Texas sized mosquitos. Balcony and balcony furniture were also very dirty and slider door was extremely hard to open - balcony was just not usable. A+ for the unit, D for the upkeep of the balcony.
Tammy P. Jun 2019
Lots of room, it has everything you need to walk in and enjoy!
John G. May 2019
My kids love the pool and the beach.
Elena G. May 2019
It has everything we needed.
rhonda w. Apr 2019
Condo was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Facility amenities were wonderful.
Angela J. Apr 2019
What an outstanding spot!
We enjoyed everything about the condo-
the view, the amenities, easy access, and the decor.
We highly recommend this rental and we plan to return!
Jay and Robin B. Mar 2019
This was a great unit in a great community. The unit was clean, spacious and comfortable. The Diamond Beah resorts' ammenities and cleanliness were fantastic!
kimberly w. Nov 2018
Diane G. Oct 2018
The view was amazing, the location was also great. The condo had the best pools I have ever had in a rental, and it was clean. modern and tastefully
Christina P. Sep 2018
Great amenities!
Megan C. Aug 2018
The resort itself was amazing! Full of entertaining amenities. The condo was nice and spacious. But we were not able to open the back door to enjoy the patio. Someone came by and was able to open it by putting their foot up on the siding and pull as hard as they could. There is an issue with the wheels and a groove it kept getting caught on. We were also not able to enjoy the deep soaker tub because the handle was stuck where the shower would only work. Again someone was called because I had a toddler who needed a bath! We are awaiting some compensation for our troubles with the issues we ran into. The amenities made up for the over priced room that had some disappointments. We will definetly stay at the resort again just find another room.
Manager response:
We are sorry you were not fully satisfied with your stay. The property manager is working with maintenance on the issues you encountered after a busy summer season. Thank you!
Susan D. Aug 2018
Great for families!
Barbara L. Aug 2018
Roomy one bedroom. Nice amenities. Close to lazy river.
Jennifer F. Jul 2018
It met all the needs of our family of 3! We loved the dark bedroom to sleep in each day. We found the kitchen well equipped with more place-settings than we needed. The amenities of Diamond Beach were awesome and we look forward to coming back!! It's too bad there isn't a bit better beach access but we ended up not minding since we spent all our time at the pool and lazy river. Highly recommend.
Felicia R. Jul 2018
The condo was beautiful and the patio was awesome! It was perfect and spacious. The door is either extremely heavy or damaged though. The grounds and pools were very well kept. The only issue was parking. There were several times we had to drive around and wait because a garage pass isn’t included.
Catherine M. Jul 2018
Great location a little down from main strip/busy areas. Clean and well-appointed condo. Property amenities of theater room, fitness center, swimming pools, game room, etc. all were very nice!
Alexis D. Jul 2018
Very clean condo! Nice view. Down the hall from the gameroom. We enjoyed our stay
cynthia c. Jun 2018
The condo was beautiful decorated and comfortable. Fantastic balcony. Bed was a great night sleep and all around wonderful place. Thanks for everything.. look forward to coming again
Justin S. Jun 2018
This room was perfect for our family of 4 (kids age 3 & 6). Spacious, beautiful view, clean, and easy access to the beach. The resort pools were amazing. We were disappointed the waterslide was only open one of the days of our 4 day trip. It was somethig the kids were most excited about. The place seemed very understaffed, but everyone we encountered was super nice. This is the only place we would stay when we return to Galveston.
Jessica G. May 2018
Excellent location and great condo. Everything we needed. The condo was very spacious and clean. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 little ones. We would definitely stay here again.
Robert H. May 2018
The condo was very well appointed, well supplied, comfortable and clean. Good view from balcony. The entire building and grounds were very nice and very clean.
Donna N. May 2018
It was a very nice condo and great view. Very clean. We even saw a school of dolphins and one even jumped up out of the water! I wish we had remote though to park in garage. Last year condo in same building gave us one.
Wendi L. Apr 2018
Loved that the location is far enough away from the hustle and bustle but not that far of a drive to be in the center of it all. The room was very clean and perfect size for a couple. It would be a little cramped with more than two people.
Susanna M. Apr 2018
We flew from Portland into Austin, Texas for my kids spring break and several nights at C. Mai Luxury in Galveston. We loved the sun, local food and staying at this lovely modern condo. We enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs and the lazy river. The kids played in the free arcade as well but we ran out of time to use the cinema. While staying we enjoyed a day at Schlitterbahn (just minutes away), walking thru the historic part of Galveston along Strand street, checking out the Kemah boardwalk and eating at all the local restaurants. Our favorites ended up being The Spot near Paradise Pier and Gypsy Joynt in the historic part of town. Kids (ages 9 and 11) had a fun time checking out Galveston. Highly recommend staying at the Diamond Head Resort - C. Mai Luxury is perfect for a small family like ours.
Heath J. Feb 2018
Super quiet, clean, and comfortable. My wife and I stayed for an extended weekend and loved this place. We highly recommend it and we will probably come again.
Becky P. Jan 2018
I stayed for 3 days with a girlfriend at this beautiful condo. Luxury all the way. Spacious and roomy, gorgeous view, comfy bed, resort feel, arcade room, heated indoor pool, etc.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about it. We would definitely come back here.
