Renovated San Luis Resort condo w/ gulf view & awesome resort pool

Elegant, polished, and full of sunlight, this beautiful studio at the San Luis Condominiums and Resort Hotel offers gorgeous, unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico and enviable access to incredible resort amenities. At this luxury Gulf-front property, which sits right across from Galveston's famous sandy beach, you'll be treated to wonderful facilities that include a wait-staff attended pool with a swim-up bar, a hot tub, cabanas with pool-side dining, and so much more.

Begin each morning with a workout in the resort fitness center, a game of tennis with your loved ones, or a long walk on the beach only 100 yards away. Return home to unwind in the comfort of central AC, kick back with a good book on your Gulf-facing balcony, and enjoy the gas grills, lounge chairs, and firepits placed throughout the resort grounds.

What's nearby:
This newly renovated condo is located on the sixth floor of the San Luis Resort, a luxe Gulf-front property located right on Galveston's seawall. You'll be just a few steps from the resort spa, where you can pamper yourself with a facial, a massage, or a pedicure, as well as on-site restaurants that include Grotto Ristorante, The Steakhouse, and Blakes Bistro. Enjoy plenty of other options nearby; including Landry's and Rainforest Cafe. The locally-famous San Luis Bar is the perfect place to end your evening. If you choose to explore beyond the resort grounds, you can easily spend a day at Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Waterpark (three miles west), take a two-mile stroll up to the Historic Pleasure Pier or walk back through time in Galveston's beautiful Strand and East End Historic Districts.

Nicest unit we stayed at in the San Luis condominiums. Will definitely return.
Melissa A. May 2022
Staying at the San Luis is awesome. This condo was perfect for our get away. Two people fit nicely. Very quiet and great view!
Susan M. Apr 2022
Love the interior design, everything was clean and you can't beat the Gulf view!
Allison F. Mar 2022
A location with little bit of everything - beach, pool, restaurants! Room was clean and had everything you need for a long weekend at the beach.
Ray C. Dec 2021
Great location. Wonderful amenities. Outstanding view. Would be a 5-star, but balcony door would not latch/lock & a/c duct/vent/closet needed leaning badly. Otherwise, very nice.
Manager response:
Ray, hank you for the review. we appreciate you letting us know the latch needs repair on the balcony door and the vents need to be cleaned. This is the time of year our units are deep cleaned so those issues will be addressed. We look forward to your next visit. Thank you!

We've rented several beach locations in Galveston, and this place is a 5 star condo for sure. Easy check-in, reserved parking in gated and covered garage, excellent security (cameras, patrols, and law enforcement). The San Louis is the best hotel on the island, so those amenities are excellent - Las Vegas style. We will be renting here again.

We reluctantly subtracted a star on this review, as there were several items that could improve:
- No ice, nor even ice trays for the tiny freezer. No ice in the building, you have to go to the hotel side.
- There was not at least a bar of soap in the bath room (although it was advertised).
- No sugar/sweetener for the coffee.
- No night stands, but there's room for small ones (you can attach them to the wall if needed).
- Optional: bath robes for the trek to the San Louis pool and spa.

Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Daniel. We apologize housekeeping missed stocking soap and will remind them to do so. We do not provide anything edible to prevent cross-contamination. We hope you'll return again!
Giovanni P. Oct 2021
The condo was nice and looked identical to the pictures. The beach view and location was amazing. Room had all the essentials needed for our getaway.
Alvin M. Aug 2021
Clean and nice
Susan R. Aug 2021
The Condo was very Beautiful, clean and accommodating. We will definately stay here again.
James K. Jul 2021
Actually a 4.5 star rating. The resort is great overall with all access. The home was excellent, smallish by quaint. Can easily recommend. Thanks.
Vince M. Jul 2021
Other than a mix up with the door code we have a super simple check in and had no issues getting parked and to the room. Room was clean and comfortable. Not a major issue, but the shower took a lot of getting used to. It was a good 5 minutes of adjusting before we could get a comfortable temperature. hotel was nice, convenient location and very friendly.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jake. We are happy to hear that you had a good stay and that our team was able to assist you in getting the door code. We do apologize for the initial inconvenience. We have passed along your feedback to our property manager to review and update the home as needed for future guests. We hope to host you again for another enjoyable stay soon!
Kelsi S. Jul 2021
We loved the location but the listing could give more details. “Washer dryer within steps” type of things! The rooms trash was still left behind from the previous stays, they did discount is for that. Blankets were dirty including the extra blanket left in the bottom drawer was just balled up and thrown in there stinky & not to mention the horrible smell of smoke! All in all Vacasa did a great job handling this situation as the rest is up to their cleaning staff & to charge the crap out of previous vacationers for smoking and allowing the rest of us feel dirty cause we have to smell it for a week. The staff took care of us but we definitely weren’t happy with the cleanliness of the room!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and apologize that you encountered some cleanliness issues. Please know that this is not commonplace, and we thank you for calling in, in order for local staff to promptly resolve these issues. We look forward to your next stay!
Annette K. Jun 2021
The balcony and view is great. Bed is small more like a full then queen. I would say this is more for 2 people not 4. Bathtub and shower are okay. Best thing about this place is the location and view and having access to the resort and restaurants . Only difference from renting a hotel room here is there is no housekeeping and trash pickup.
Manager response:
Donna S. Jun 2021
Overall the stay was nice but could be better if mindful of small details. No mattress cover on the bed!! AND on the undesirable side of comfort. Coffee carafe is to small for the coffee pot and had to be rigged for coffee to even drip. Needs a crockpot! Has a place setting for 4, silverware and a blender. The view is amazing!
Manager response:
Hi Donna, thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit and the view. We hope to host you again soon.
Joyce W. Jun 2021
Overall we had a good experience. We opted for a smaller space to be able to have access to the San Luis Resort. We have stayed in a lot of VRBOs and love them. This unit is definitely more like a hotel room - again, we knew that when we selected - however, we felt some basic supplies could be added for a better experience. There were no steak knives - only butter knives. We were there four days and feel more towels would have been nice and more bathroom toiletries.

There was an issue on arrival with hot water. The person on call (Jake) for maintenance was GREAT! Answered immediately and even came over to check it out. With it being an older facility there is one hot water heater for the entire building and it takes a long time to get hot water and there are blockages sometimes. Jake was super helpful and communicated frequently with any questions we had.

Overall, good experience. We LOVED The Steakhouse and the The Bar. Great options for food having access to the resort.
Deryl H. May 2021
Condo was clean and was small enough to keep an eye on my young family and large enough to accommodate all 4 of us. Two adults a 6 and 5 year old.
Vacasa input all details into emails prior to arrival, check in and check out was seemless.
We will be using Vacasa in the future.
Holly W. May 2021
We have stayed here many times and it’s always perfect.
April O. May 2021
Such a vibe! Was awesome
Kiyana J. Jan 2021
I loved this home, everything was great, and not to mention the view. It was easy to check in and check out. My family really enjoyed it and the bed and voice were super comfy. We will stay here again.
Rohit S. Jan 2021
This is a studio condo and a little Gem we discovered in Galveston. Cheaper than the San Luis Resort but in the same ground using the same amenities. Will come back.
Dana M. Nov 2020
Great view! Very clean!
Adra T. Oct 2020
Great place for a couple or a small family. Everything was clean and as pictured. ***If you have a large truck (diesel/lifted), the parking garage is NOT a good idea. But you can park in the parking lot behind the resort. Great place to stay!!!
Debbie E. Oct 2020
Great condo! Very clean and had everything you need! Highly recommend! We had a great time! Love the patio!
Nancy b. Oct 2020
Clean and great view, comfortable bed, it was more a full size than queen, but my son felt the sectional was perfect, I would book it again. Easy access, great amenities, thank you
Amber T. Sep 2020
Very Nicely put togther
Jenny J. Sep 2020
This escape was just what I needed for a low key girls weekend. Clean, comfortable and cozy. Great views, great spa, great pool and bar, close to everything. I’ll definitely be back. ❤️
Ji S. Sep 2020
The condo itself was clean and well equipped. The view is great from the patio and it was nicely updated. The reserved parking spot is great but kind of difficult to navigate the garage if you have a large vehicle. We had a hiccup with check in as Vacasa did not provide the 3 digit code to get into the mailbox for the key fob but a phone call to vacasa resolved the issue. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will return to this resort.

Loved the amenities at the resort as well but couple of items to note: the resort did not have beach chair service so we had to walk down to find a vendor, and the lounge chairs by the pool were not socially distanced so that was not good.
Manager response:
Hello, Ji! Thanks for the review. We apologize for the inconvenience regarding the lockout. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to make things right. We are happy to hear that the quality of your visit had improved once that had been resolved. Thank you for staying with us!
Patricia R. Aug 2020
Wonderful restaurants in the resort.
Christopher H. Aug 2020
Very clean, nice view of gulf. Would stay here again.
Tad A. Aug 2020
Because it it right in the middle of town.
Yolanda C. Jul 2020
Loved the view and the kitchenette was just what we needed for our girls trip. Loved the pool and property amenities. The only problem was the tub was not clean and the a/c vents were dirty.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Yolanda. We are glad you enjoyed the amenities offered at this location and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to ensure the tub and vents are thoroughly cleaned, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Jennifer S. Jul 2020
Everything was super clean and we very much enjoyed our stay!!
Lauren N. Jul 2020
This condo was so great! Easy process of checking in and out, clean and well organized room, and overall great accommodations! Will stay again!
Kyle M. Jul 2020
Great view of beach, nice clean room, good location
Melissa R. Jul 2020
The pictures were pretty but in person the room was not that clean. There were two dirty towels on the door hook, the toilet was dirty, only one tiny bar of soap and a half roll of toilet paper. Also the parking/door fob was not in the mailbox like it said it would be and someone had to let us in the building because of this. Three stars for a five star price . I am from Galveston and am very familiar with rentals in their area.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Melissa. We apologize for the cleanliness issues you experienced during your stay; please know this is not our standard. We encourage any in-home guests contact our 24 hour Guest Services line with any concerns, so our local staff has the opportunity to promptly address them. We also apologize for any confusion and inconvenience you experienced during the check-in process and we will follow-up to ensure the check-in process is accurately relayed and the fob is located where it should be. We typically stock our homes with a starter supply of dish soap, toilet paper, paper towels, and laundry soap to ensure our guests first night starts off well. We encourage our guests to bring any additional items they foresee needing during their stay. We hope we have the opportunity to better impress you in the future!
Karl S. Jul 2020
Room was well stocked with coffee and toiletries. Bed actually has an adjustable foundation. Pool and Spa were great and safe distancing was being practiced everywhere.
Alyssa A. May 2020
Overall we enjoyed our trip, and the room was the perfect size we needed. We were pretty disappointed though that the room was quite dirty upon our arrival.
Manager response:
Hi Alyssa, thank you for sharing your review with us. We apologize for any areas missed by our housekeeping team during their initial clean of the home. Please know that should you ever encounter any issues or have concerns regarding the cleanliness of your home our guest services team is available 24/7 via phone, text, and email to address these concerns. We would have gladly sent out our housekeeping team to rectify this issue. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope to have another opportunity to impress you again in the future!

All good.
Andrew C. Feb 2020
Save money and stay here while still getting all the resort ammenetties.
Patrick P. Jan 2020
It was great to have assigned, covered parking. The condo was generously stocked and had a great view. The bonus was having access to all the amenities in the hotel.
Rebecca F. Jan 2020
Very comfortable condo located close to great food, entertainment and benefits of the hotel pool.. Manager was quick to respond to any questions I had. Will differently be booking again!!

The view from this room & the decor was spot on for a relaxing stay on the beach!
Zainab M. Oct 2019
Very private well decorated condo room with a great view of the beach and the Gulf. Any questions we had were answered with a quick phone call. Would've been perfect if there were an ice machine in the building though. Overall a lovely place and great price! Will stay again!
Cathy L. Oct 2019
Nice but a little too small.
Kim A. Oct 2019
Love the San Luis and enjoyed all the amenities. Perfect getaway. Condo is beautiful and clean, would definitely stay again.

We'll be back for sure. There is so much to do
Jennifer L. Aug 2019
We really enjoyed the condo at The San Luis Resort. The condo looks exactly like the pictures, and you can tell that it’s been recently updated. Check-in and out were a breeze, and you get to enjoy all the amenities of the resort without the hotel room prices. We would definitely stay here again!
Richard H. Jul 2019
We had a fun time. The Cove is fun,
Kelly G. Jul 2019
This condo exceeded my expectations. It was beautifully updated and has an outstanding view. The couch was as added bonus because it pulls out to a bed that's very comfortable. I will be staying here during all my upcoming visits to San Luis. I want to add the customer service was also exceptional. I often stay at the San Luis and this condo was way more impressive than any of their regular rooms.
Jennifer M. Jul 2019
We love the restaurants and easy access to all of the amenities. There is so much to do.
Kevin D. Jul 2019
Very clean. With all the amenities included. We will definitely stay here again.

Loved it here. We will be back in the fall.
Clayton G. Jul 2019
This is a great place for a romantic weekend.

It is a great place for a wedding party
Cris B. Jun 2019
We will definitely book this sunny, cheerful condo again! Beautifully updated with lovely decorations, nice furnishings, and a handy kitchenette. The balcony looks over the front lawn with a clear view of the beach and ocean. Helpful instructions provided for check-in, parking, and check-out.
Shannon L. Jun 2019
Stayed at this condo for two days with my husband. Beautifully decorated, great views from the balcony and great location. Loved that we could use the pool at the San Luis Resort , but didn’t have to pay a resort fee like you would at the hotel. I also loved that we had our own designated parking spot and it was in a covered parking garage. I highly recommend this condo and would definitely stay here again.
Michael B. May 2019
This was very easy to book, get access to key card and pool bands. Great location right next to the elevator. Easily accessible to the main hotel and parking spot. The condo was nicely updated and had everything that we needed. Would definitely stay here again.
James R. May 2019
Easy access to everything we wanted to do.
