We had a wonderful experience with everyone during our stay. Making the reservation was easy and pleasant. When we arrived, the folks at the front desk could not have been nicer. We were early and Sandy tried to get our suite (which had been upgraded) ready, but we had to leave for a play we were attending. We had a brief visit with the vacation folks and then headed out.
All of the staff that we met went above and beyond with excellent service.
When we returned, our room was ready and we were happy to find that it had a nice view of the pool and the ocean. The suite was immaculate and stocked with the main necessities.
If I were to be picky, I’d say that they could get bigger TVs. Both TVs were small, 24” I believe.
However, I would still say that our stay could not have been better. We will definitely return.
We have stayed here many times and for this trip, decided to choose one of the single-bedroom options. It was clean and airy with a balcony that still afforded some ocean views despite being halfway up the building from the beach side. The staff were all helpful and quick to address a need for a light bulb when we first arrived. Did I mention clean! Always appreciate attention to cleanliness. Also, Galveston has done wonders for the beach quality as of recent. Wow. It is like going to a different place. Amazing improvement. Check it out!
