Very spacious and comfortable. Beautifully decorated. Six of us stayed without feeling cramped. You can’t beat the view!! Our only complaint is there are no locks on any of the interior doors. Overall I highly recommend this place!!

We loved the décor - and especially the balcony overlooking the ocean (really nice furniture and size). Bedrooms and bathrooms were great as was the kitchen. We were surprised how upscale the entire property was - pools - marble lobby etc. and our front desk guy "Bean" was just really welcoming and helpful.

We loved the space this home provided. My wife and I and her parents enjoyed this home for 3 days & 2 nights. My wife and I had to work the first day remotely from this unit. We were both able to make up our own workspace within this unit and not disturb her parents. Besides all of that, the view was spectacular. The master suite was impressive as well. Amazing shower and tub! All & all, this was a great trip and great find on Vacasa! Almost forgot to mention the amenities too. Poolside bar, lazy river and plenty of space to spread out.

You could not beat the view and location. Close to things yet far enough away. Quiet and fun for the teenagers. It was chilly while we were there and the pool heaters were broke which was the only bummer. Will definitely come back!

The condo is very clean and comfortable. The building is well kept and clean as well. The only issues with our stay were the lack of open amenities at the location. Whatever they say, the pools are not heated- only the one hut tub was warm enough. However, it was very soothing to hear the ocean outside the door and watch the sunrise from the balcony. This would be a fabulous vacation spot for warmer weather when you can actually use the beautiful pools and lazy river. We will definitely be back during warmer months.

The resort is great.
Kay G.Nov 2020
First, the weather was perfect. We were able to lounge out on the patio enjoy the sunshine and listen to the waves. There were very few people so that was also pleasant.

We loved the whole resort.

We had an amazing stay here in Galveston! Even with all the closures for covid-19, the view was spectacular, the lazy river & pool were so much fun for us & our kids! We enjoyed the beach for a day & a half as well- a much needed get-a-way!!
Mary R.Aug 2020
Exactly like pictures! Beautiful view, very relaxing, great pool and lazy river!

The condo is beautiful and the lazy river is dreamy and highly recommended! We had a great time and will return!
Darla G.Jul 2020
Loved this unit and the property.
Lisa L.Jul 2020
This property was beautiful and clean, and the shower in the master bath was incredible! The only things to improve upon would have been the addition of a ironing board and more hangers (minor issues, at best). The shower head holder in the master bath was broken, but not an issue as we utilized the rainfall shower instead.
Thank you for your review, Lisa. We are glad you enjoyed this home and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

Everything is super clean, not a lot of knick knacks for my toddler to mess with. Can’t go wrong with Diamond Beach Amenities.
Julie W.Jun 2020
Loved the condo and it’s amenities. Would love to go back in a heartbeat. The condo only had 2 baths, not 2-1/2 baths.
Shawna L.May 2020
This home is beautiful and located perfectly. The pools and grounds were stunning. We loved the lazy river and balcony. I would highly recommend the Diamond Beach Condos.
