Pool was small for the hotel size and always dirty. Public parking lot next-door to a closed restaurant was always full of non guest cars so the beach immediately behind the resort was always packed and dirty with litter, etc. Not much bang for the buck.

It was worth it to try Galveston at a resort. In the past we always visited the public beaches and this was better by far. The beaches were clean and quiet. Mostly families were present. There was a slight smell of decomposing seaweed, but you get used to it. It's part of the ecosystem so they leave it in piles. The resort was nice enough. We especially enjoyed the infinity pool overlooking the ocean and the outdoor grill/picnic area. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchens well equipped. It was great to have access to laundry. The most amazing thing was how sound proof the suites were. We shared an entryway with a family that had a crying baby, and didn't even hear it until we opened the door to leave. If you need a quick Texas beach getaway, this is a good option. Plan to visit some of the local restaurants too. Being near to Houston, Galveston has some very diverse and delicious culinary choices!

Nice location but ...
The location, furnishings and amenities are nice ... however, when we arrived we had to request the cleaning staff sweep and mop our room due to hair and sticky spots on floor and walls. There was also trash (beer bottle and case) in the cabinets from previous occupants. My wife was looking forward to a hot bath but we had to call maintenance to get the hot water working in the bathroom. The views were nice from the fifth floor and the hotel has great access to the beach but the "deluxe" one bedroom suite is small. There is only one elevator for staff and guests and only one ice machine - which ran out of ice. We wanted to like it, but we are disappointed.

Nice "on the beach" Resort
Stayed a long weekend during the busy season and loved the location right on the beach. Beach was large and kept clean. Hotel had lots of nice extras like volleyball court, shuffleboard, picnic areas with grills, etc... Rooms were nice size with kitchen and had a view of the ocean. Only real negative were that the elevators are super slow, 90% of the time everyone just took the stairs. All around good experience though, I would return.

My wife and I stayed for two nights. It was awesome! The room was clean, quiet and spacious. It was nice having a fully equipped kitchen. The king bed was comfortable. We loved sitting out on the large balcony. Not having a restaurant in the hotel was not a problem for us. It's a short drive to plenty of great restaurants. We also enjoyed not having to walk across a street to the beach. The staff and service was great. We definitely will stay here again.

Awesome Facility...great rooms...great views... Great pool
We stayed a full week and had a great time! The place is super nice far enough away from the busy seawall with a nice beach and less crowded. The pool and hot tub were very nice with a nice view and infinity edge. The staff was always nice and we had everything we needed. Definitely a family resort very clean and rooms were well equipped with everything you need. We will absolutely stay here the next time we are in Galveston. Nice resort with everything you need!

I believe this is the only hotel/resort that is actually ON the beach; the rest are across the street - not ideal! Property was very clean, all the comforts of home; staff was awesome. Will absolutely stay here again.

No view and you may be woke up by next door people
The room have only "partial beach view", we have no chance to upgrade, and for the amount paid you could get a better room in an other hotel. Sorry very disappointed.

Great family fun
We arrived at the Vacation Club on a horribly stormy, windy day. We were hoping to lay on the beach but to our dissmay the weather wasn't going anywhere. Little did we know we picked the perfect place to stay. Our room was very spacious. There was a game room for the kids with lots of board games, air hockey, wii, big screen television, movies to borrow, popcorn, and crafts for the kids. The kids never got bored, therefore the parents stayed happy. I'll definitely return again.
