Diamond Beach is our new ‘Go To’ place to stay in Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Diamond Beach and Unit 611 was great! The views from Unit 611, which overlooks the middle Diamond Beach cascading pool and onward to the Gulf of Mexico, were great. Even though the outside temperature was very hot, we found the large balcony comfortable. On arrival our check-in went very smoothly and with the Diamond Beach carts we were able to move in quickly. The condo was clean, well furnished and the kitchen very well stocked with kitchenware. Our group of 6 (5 adults and a baby) had almost all of our meals in the condo. As to Diamond Beach’s facilities, we really enjoyed the cascading pools, hot tub, water slide and (most of all) the lazy river! The indoor pool was great for the baby as was the playroom. Finally, access to the beach (which we only visited once given all Diamond Beach had to offer) was good. It was great to have Maddie call shortly after our arrival just to make sure that everything was in order. We shall return!

Once you have stayed at Diamond Beach in Galveston you will want to return again and again.

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was a mini reunion of 4 girlfriends and we certainly enjoyed the condo and our stay.

This condo was initially selected because it had 3 bedrooms with one of the bedrooms having twin beds in lieu of bunk beds.

Our enjoyment was enhanced by the beautiful appointments of the condo and the wonderful bed linens and towels. The overall facility is unquestionably a step above the others and we definitely spent quality time in the hot and lazy river.

The owner was very attentive, with a call upon our arrival to see if everything was as expected and to see if we had any questions. In addition he provided his phone number should we need to contact him

Loved the Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights and loved being in Galveston. The condo was so nice - especially the master bath and kitchen areas. Great balcony with great pool view. We plan to return for a longer stay. Great experience.

Diamond beach was a great expereince!

  • 4 of 5

Diamond Beach Resort offered every amenity that we needed to enjoy a wonderful family vacation. The condo was large enough to accommodate us and equipped with TV's in all rooms, wifi and DVD, fully equipped kitchen and a wonderful view of the gulf from the 6th floor. The resort facilities were clean and well maintained. The pools and lazy river were a welcome spot to cool down after sight seeing and traveling about the Galveston area.

We have spoken highly about this spot to our friends and will recommend it to anyone looking for a quite. clean, secure and well run facility.

The owner called us after our arrival to ensure that we had everything we needed to make our time there enjoyable.

The check-in was easy and staff friendly and accommodating.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at Diamond Beach. The condo was very nice, clean and centrally located to all the activities offered. We had tiny ones to the elderly and all were entertained. And of course the view was beautiful. We would recommend this to all families.

Golf: Moody Gardens Golf Course

Introducing the Moody Gardens® Golf Course, formerly the Galveston Municipal Golf Course, featuring a $16 million comprehensive renovation by the renowned golf course architects of Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design. Revealed in June 2008, the Moody Gardens® Golf Course still features the best historical aspects of the original layout, while significantly improving certain holes and overall course flow.

The renovation included new turf grass, green complexes, elevations, irrigation, drainage, cart paths, greens and a full clubhouse renovation.

A First-class Public Golf Course

The multi-million dollar investment is a contribution to the city on the part of Moody Gardens® and the culmination of the vision to provide a first-class public golf course for local residents and visitors to the Island. The City of Galveston retains ownership of the newly renovated facility, which is managed by Moody Gardens®.

A Seaside Course with a Tropical Feel

Jacobsen Hardy's attention to detail provides residents and visitors alike with a premiere public golf course. Among the many improvements the course features Paspalum turf, designed for seaside golf courses and providing an outstanding playing surface.

To keep playing surfaces in top condition, a new water treatment plant and irrigation system were included in the renovation project. This improvement in water quality optimizes playing surfaces and also provides water for landscaped areas around the clubhouse.
