Pointe West Beach Club - 2016 Wristband Policy

We are implementing the following changes effective immediately. Implementing these changes, we believe we can keep owner’s Beach Club assessments flat year on year and utilize the income from our guests to maintain and improve our pools.

Wrist band fees for Beach Club and Sunset pools:

• January 1st until March 1st and September 9th through December 31st 2015 Beach Club bands will be free for non-owners with a contract or rental agreement.

• During peak season, March 1, 2016 through September 6, 2016; Beach Club bands will be $10.00 per person for all non-owners.

Other details included but are not limited to:

a. If wristband is lost, $25.00 replacement fee per band.

b. The number of bands issued will be based on either the signed rental agreement or based on occupancy*. All parties must be present to receive on an occupancy basis; meaning an individual cannot get multiple wristbands without a contract or copy of rental agreement.

c. For owners to have the fee waived for their immediate family, they need to provide names of family members to the front desk files annually.

d. Guests of renters may request a day pass for $25.00 per day. Day passes will only be available if pool occupancy can accommodate on requested day and will be managed with paper, single day dated wrist bands.

e. Guests or friends of owners can only use the facilities free of charge when accompanied by the owner and at a number of guests within the owner’s occupancy. Otherwise, they will be treated as a renter and charged the appropriate wristband fees.

f. Wristband fees will be charged for all non-owners over the age of 3 years old.

This is an optional fee, if you choose not to use the Beach Club facilities, no fee is charged. This fee will be charged upon Registration at the BEACH CLUB OFFICE!

Wonderful place.

  • 4 of 5

We have been to Pointe West four years in a row. This condo has been one of our favs. Such a beautiful view and so many things for the kids. Seriously couldn't believe how many things they had for kids; toys, high chairs, utensils, dishes, books and movies. When the kids weren't at the beach or sleeping they were playing with the endless toys. Beds were super comfy. Had way more than I expected in the kitchen. Patio furniture was very nice too. Only thing we had problems with were a few of the DVD players weren't working. And that's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. We hope to return soon!

Simply Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we hoped for and more. The condo was very spacious and well maintained. The view of the beach and ocean from the balcony was incomparable! I love to cook and did not want for pots, pans, utensils and all other kitchen staples to insure preparing meals was a "just like home" experience. Clementine and Matt took great care of us upon check-in and check-out. Everything was as smooth as silk. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family or to book it again, when the mood strikes to head south! Just a lovely experience and not one we'll soon forget. Thank you so much for making our stay amazing!

Perfect Weekend Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! The condo was everything we could imagine. The wrap-around balcony gave great views of the gulf and up the coast. Everything was provided and the cage for beach equipment was a life saver. The condo is huge, clean and well taken care of. Having 3 bathrooms was great and having a bunk bed in one of the rooms was a plus for our 2 boys. The bunk beds are fulls, so even if you don't have kids, they are plenty big enough for an adult. The condo is in the building right next to the pool which made for a very quick and easy walk. We already have talked about coming back yearly to this condo.

A wonderful beach home; already miss it!

  • 5 of 5

Brightside is absolutely a great place for family vacation. The accommodations were extremely comfortable, very clean for five adults and two children under four. More toys than two could play with. So many amenities available, and the most fantastic, unobstructed view of the gulf imaginable. The balcony/porch has the nicest breeze all day and is always shaded. Easy access to the beach and the beach club. Lots of condo rules, but all very easy to follow and maintain. Would prefer to get deposit back at check out, but definitely not a deal breaker. Highly recommend Nate's Restaurant...but don't forget your checkbook. Great seafood, service in a quaint seaside setting. Took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen for all other meals. A quick email (wifi available) or phone call to management was all it took to get extras of certain items that we ran out of...trash bags. Loved our time on the beach more than the pool. Wouldn't purchase wrist bands again. Beach Club was nice with a decent restaurant. Parking can be a problem on the weekends if there is more than one car.

We highly recommend Brightside at Point West Resort.

Excellent Retreat! :)

  • 5 of 5

I, daughter & grandson spent 3-1/2 days here at Brightside and LOVED it! Had everything we needed - nice amenities (coffee, sugar/sweetner, fluffy towels, shampoo/bodywash, etc) including a cool wagon to unload/load our car with!! Comfy beds and wonderful condo layout - master facing the beach - other 2 bedrooms in back, making privacy nice once we were were worn out from touring Galveston. Kids bedroom had bunk beds and LOTS of toys :) which thrilled grandson :) Beautiful view of beachfront from living room and veranda altho we were condo-bound due to the cold, rainy weather - of course the sun came out Sunday :) LOL, oh well... however, we stayed busy seeing Moody Gardens Ice Palace, the Lights, shopping the Strand, eating out at Fisherman's Wharf & watching the Carnival Triumph leave Galveston thru the windows there - 6 yr old grandson was in Heaven! :) This condo is lovingly furnished with comfy furniture and beds. I would definitely rent it again :) Thanks for a wonderful weekend - we had a great time!!! :)

Wonderful Condo!! We look forward to returning!

  • 5 of 5

Brightside is a beautiful condo. The pictures do not do it justice. The location could not be better. We had perfect (unobstructed) views of the beach and right next to the beach club. We traveled with a young toddler and having the pack and play and high chair already there was a wonderful perk. We will definitely be back.

You will find Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, Galveston’s Historic Pleasure Pier, cruise terminal & The Strand/ Wharf District are a relaxing, scenic drive of only 23-25 miles away; about a 20-30 minute trip.

For a Galveston Day of Tourist FUN, we suggest you wake with the sunrise here at the resort & plan to spend at least the next 12 hours in town. Whether you take a historical homes tour, a ride on the ferry or spend the day at one of our 3 amusements/attraction parks, you can EASILY spend WHOLE DAY! Once you have exhausted yourself from hitting the town, head back west, into the sunset, back to the beach for a great night’s SLEEP.
