There cannot be enough said about the cool design, layout, BEAUTIFUL views, comfy beds, and proximity to the private beach. Our family getting to comfortably gather inside and outside and watch the sunset together atop the rooftop bar… priceless. The interior washer/dryer were handy (though the laundry room and some closet doors would not close) and the well-stocked unit was tidy and clean upon arrival. The exterior microwave glass was sitting in the dishwasher, but we were fortunately able to still heat up food, despite the broken microwave door and slow-to-heat oven. We believe there are some structural (and hopefully some appliance) repairs in progress and would love to return after a full restoration is complete!
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.
Enjoyed the place...it was nice n roomy. Only issue was pool was dirty when arrived but called n within an hour someone was there to clean it for us. Also 1 of the twin beds felt like had sand in it. All in all we enjoyed the place.
