Fabulous 8.6 From 865 reviews

The San Luis Resort, Spa & Conference Center
We’ve stayed at the San Luis before and this experience was a step down. It started out with us being sent to the wrong room, and I got attitude when I first called to inquire about the mixup. We were moved to the right room, and it was bigger, but everything about the rooms screams old. Looks like it hasn’t been renovated since the 80s. Unfortunately, the one thing the hotel did spend money on was making the pool SMALLER and removing the slide / water fall area that were part of what made the pool special. *WISH WE’D KNOWN THAT!* Instead, they added cabanas (that don’t even face the pool) that they rent out and apparently make them lots of money. Overall, the San Luis remains an expensive hotel in galveston that’s nice but could stand much improvement.

The room was nice, and so were the employees. The room service took an extremely long time and my steak was undercooked (didn't mention the steak to them), but they did bring us some chocolate covered strawberries and a 4 pack of cokes and were very apologetic. The only thing that was really unfortunate was that after mentioning that we would be using the shuttle to go to the cruise terminal to the person I booked with, the valet, the person I checked in with, and the person I called prior to check in to make sure it was available..... We waited over an hour for the shuttle because we weren't put on the list. It made us late for our check in time for our cruise. I will stay again, but hope this doesn't happen in the future.

A week after memorial day and it was very crowded.
Only complaint was that I was not told ahead of arrival about the restriction on rolling coolers. They did accommodate me with a fridge (extra charge) after I had to have the cooler taken back to my vehicle.
