Absolutely amazing place to take your family!!

  • 5 of 5

We read some of the reviews that people before us had left and we didn't let it deter us and we are so glad we didn't!!! We had a wonderful stay! The condo was very comfortable and clean. Plenty of room for eight people. The master bathroom is fit for a king and queen. The washer and dryer are so handy to have with everyone having so many wet towels and bathing suits and going home w no laundry is a plus for me. 🙂? The balcony is not small there's plenty of room. The grills downstairs are great (bring utensils for it there aren't any in condo) and the resort itself has so many things to do it kept our kids from ages 10-21 occupied as well as us moms and especially the dads in the game room. 😂? We did use the theater room and watched a movie it was really fun as well. We spent a lot of time in the lazy river and pool mostly. There is very easy access to the beach from here as well. Overall it was a great time and the owners were super friendly and answered any questions we had promptly. I do want to remind everyone that they need to bring toilet paper and paper towels and soaps. (I forgot) but stores are right there near. The slide was not open the whole time we were there but it was a couple of the days and Also the fitness center is great the view while you work out is amazing. The spa nor bars were open but we lived without it. The staff at the resort were very friendly. The resort was clean as well. Our kids are looking forward to this trip again!

Enjoyed the property and the condo! Great time

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as pictured and lived up to my expectations. The view is incredible and very relaxing. The showers were awesome and kitchen is top rate. We comfortably slept 7. My mom is in a wheelchair and she was able to maneuver and enjoy her stay. (Bathroom is wide enough for wheelchair, but there are no bars for transfer or way to shower; we did not expect there to be so this was not a problem.). The lazy river, pools, and hot tub were incredible. I wish the bar and slide would have been open but we still enjoyed the amenities and time outside. The pool has several sections with a different depth on each one and a beautiful waterfall that cascades between the levels. We were there Tue-Fri, so it wasn't overly crowded and we were able to enjoy our time very much. It would be nice if more than one key was available, but other than that we will plan on visiting again.

Family summer vacay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with play time as well as relaxation in the huge pool. We have stayed at Diamond beach four times in the last five years, We stayed in the Chocolate Diamond twice, The over all stay was nice with just once glitch in the condo. The garbage disposal was not working and there was an odor. Just put a little bleach in it and we were good. The over all property was disappointing (no fault of the condo owner). In the game room almost all the games were broke with some of the same games broken last visit. I wood hope they could fix the games because it could be a great room if it rains and the kids need something to do.

Great place! Clean spacious condo. Was well stocked with plenty of towels, dishes, and toilet paper

  • 4 of 5

Condo 407 was one of the best condos we've stayed at anywhere. The owner was very responsive when we had questions. The Diamond Resort is great for kids with lots of swimming pools, a nice beach that wasn't crowded, and a couple of hot tubs for the adults. A little disappointed the bar and spa were closed but overall, a very clean and secure place. We would definitely love to come back someday!

Summer vacation

  • 4 of 5

Diamond Beach resort is fabulous. Has awesome amenities. Condo was great space with 3 bedrooms, but balcony small. Does overlook gulf though so is great.Condo owner got in touch with me immediately to answer any questions I had. Was very easy to get key and check in. One main concern is that we had to park a 3rd vehicle along the seawall even though there were plenty of spaces in the parking lot. Will think about that for next visit.Furniture in living area and balcony is uncomfortable.Shame because we wanted to spend more time on balcony but not all of us were able to be out there at the same time. Floors were dirty with sand or dirt. But we made the best of it. Could never connect to wifi even though we had password.

Despite all of this we had a great time in Galveston. So much to do especially at this resort.

Will definitely be back.

Wonderful Condo

  • 3 of 5

This condominium is a hidden gem with wonderful amenities and a gorgeous view. The owner was responsive to our needs. The kitchen, bedrooms and master bath are amazing. The resort however was a disappointment. Even though the second half of our stay was during peak season, the property did not seem prepared beyond putting out more loungers. The water slide was closed, one hot tub was broken the whole stay and the second only worked part of the stay. The spa was not open at any point. And, the indoor and swim up bars are closed indefinitely.
