Nice Overall Stay ***** 5 STAR
Submitted: December 12, 2012
Stayed: June 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent annual Galveston vacation, and it was nice being able to stay somewhere roomier than a hotel, but without costing an arm and a leg. Our most favorite part of our entire stay this year was Pleasure Pier, and we will definitely go again next time we are in Galveston. The bed in the Master Bedroom was extremely comfortable, and probably the best I've ever slept while on vacation. It does take up most of the room, so be careful maneuvering your way around the bed to get to the closet; the only storage space in the condo.The sofa bed seemed to be pretty comfortable, and was our kids' preferred sleeping spot over the hallway bunk beds.The kitchen is small, but adequate. Definitely beats only having a mini-fridge, and microwave, that's for sure! Although the fridge isn't full sized, it was plenty big enough for the few days worth of cold foods we needed for our stay. The "freezer" isn't very big at all, so I wouldn't plan on storing much frozen food. Be sure to check the temperature gauge knob inside the fridge at check-in, and be sure to turn it up higher (6-7 max) to keep your food cold. WiFi signal was great, and I was able to connect not only on the balcony, but also from within the condo. You'll need to call the front desk for the Guest Passcode for internet use. The pools are very nice, and our kids really enjoyed the pool targeted more towards smaller kids. The pool closer to the condo starts off at 3 ft. 6 in., and was a bit too deep for our 6 and 7 year olds. I definitely recommend this condo if you're looking for an affordable accommodation that offers a little more space than your typical hotel room.
