DIAMOND RESORT

  • 4 of 5
Condo was as advertised but a few issues made the stay less than pleasant. The owner only allows one door key to her unit which made coming and going more difficult than it needed to be. The ability to receive cable TV was somewhat of a challenge especially when the owner refused to pay a $20 fee for a condo staff member to assist. She claimed she could talk me through the process by phone but I was able to solve the problem by trial and error. The unit had a Wi-Fi network but the owner could not identify which of many available secured networks was hers. Again, trial and error solved the problem. Lastly, it would be nice to have bar soap for bathing rather than a dispenser of antiseptic hand soap. Overall I give this unit a good rating but feel the owner should strive for an excellent rating.

GEM OF A PROPERTY IN GALVESTON

  • 5 of 5
The condo is gorgeous and spacious! I love the way it has been decorated and had almost everything we needed. We like to cook and they really had minimal cookware but as soon as I brought it up it was immediately taken care of! The resort is beautiful and the I cant wait to go back.

FABULOUS CHRISTMAS GET-AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Chocolate Diamond Resort. We spent 5 nights over Christmas. The owner decorated the condo with an adorable tree and festive lighted flamingos! We were completely at home even though we were spending Christmas out of town. The owner was available to answer any questions we had. Wonderful property! Would definitely stay there again!

OCTOBER STAY

  • 5 of 5
Hot water works, you just have to know how to operate the dials in the master shower. Condo was great and the view was beautiful. This condo has a half balcony, meaning that the balcony stretches the length of the living room (1/2 the width of the condo). The kitchen occupies the other half width of the condo. Other condos have a double length balcony, meaning that there is no dining area as the kitchen gets pushed into the dining area. We enjoyed being able to sit down together at a table (seats 8-10).

Condo was stocked with utensils and was very comfortable. Check in process was painless and the grounds were immaculate. The complex was deserted in early October but the weather was still warm - the best time of year to come to the beach!

QUICK TIME AWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was only the second time for me to use VRBO and I was a little nervous. It was a short 4 day trip with my children and grandchildren and I was put at ease by the owner's quick responses to any questions or concerns. The condo was everything that was advertised. Even a gift basket from the owner that was misplaced was mailed to us AFTER we left! The resort has so much to do that we never used all the amenities. One request for the owner - more cooking utensils and one for the resort - clean up a little of the beach area. Other than that we were very pleased and loved our time there. You will not be disappointed..... We would definitely go back.
