The pros: the Amenities are top notch, it’s a beautiful property, indoor pool is perfect for hot or rainy days. There are lots of things for the kids like a playroom, cinema which you can reserve for your family only. We had stayed in Galveston before and hated to cross the busy street between the hotel and the beach, so Diamond Beach is perfect with direct access to the beach. Amazing customer service. Great covered parking. Would definitely come back to this property, maybe a different apartment.
The apartment was clean for the most part, spacious, big fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer.
Deep bathtub, and big shower. Well stocked for the most part. We loved the smart features, we could easily control the lights, temperature, music, etc.
Cons: Just because we are very picky with cleanliness, there were a few things that could be cleaner or replaced like the rugs in bathrooms and living room, the chairs in dining room, some drawers, the walls should get a fresh coat of paint. Crumbs inside the sleeping sofa.
The bathrooms are remodeled but the corners of tile were not filled with grout, just left with a raw finish.
No blinds on the third window in the living room which made it difficult for our kids that slept there.
No lock on the door that opens to the balcony, which is a safety issue with little ones.
We were supposed to get laundry detergent (on their property list of what’s included) and we didn’t , not a bid deal, we just like to come back home with a fresh load of laundry. We reached Vacasa and they didn’t even seem to know what was included and what wasn’t.
The main pool wasn’t open, I guess because of Covid and fewer guests. Not a big deal, we still had the lazy river and indoor pool.
Overall we would definitely come back to Diamond Beach, just maybe a different apartment.
Perfect beach weekend retreat. Bright and homey, comfortable patio furniture to just sit and listen to the waves. Comfortable beds and 'amazing' shower! Just right for a few days away from the real world.

It is one of the nicest resorts on the island, right on the beach.
