2019 girls trip
We loved this place! Everything was so clean and the pool was awesome! We had to walk/drive a few blocks to be able to set up umbrellas on the beach instead of just being able to walk across the street, but wasn’t a huge problem at all. Overall this place was great!
Girls just want to have FUN and we are so glad you had a great time in Celestial Seas!
Very clean unit with all needed appliances. Would stay again.
Family Vacay in Galveston
The property is great, the pools are nice and the balcony does provide excellent view in the morning. The beach directly across the street is nonexistent if the water is high, you do need to walk or drive a short distance to get to sand. We had 3 toddlers in tote and walking wasn't really an option for us. Other than that the location is great! The restaurant right near the condo, Jimmy's, did have wonderful food and right across the street from there is miniature golf, which the kids and adults enjoyed. Donna was very quick to respond to our needs for coffee and clothes detergent. The master was very comfortable, but the 2nd bedroom was a little warm and could use additional covering for the window, the light was very bright. Overall we enjoyed our stay!
Clerk at check in was horrible. She didn’t look up to speak to me nor did she greet me. The brief conversation I had with her she stared at her work computer. No instructions as to where the pool was or even an enjoy your stay. When I asked her how to get to the pool all she stated was it’s on the white paper. Owner was responsive to my concerns about some ware and tear on the interior of the condo. Overall the experience was good.
Very great experience. Super easy and everyone seemed very friendly. Will definitely be booking again In the future.
Awesome pool but kitchen was a bit disheveled
Loved the location, the size of the condo and the ultimate awesome pool! Beds were firm, very comfortable, bathrooms clean and tidy. CableTV in both rooms and living room. The only negative was the kitchen. The largest cooking pan was very small and in bad need of replacement. Upon arrival, I inspected the large appliances like fridge, microwave and dish washer. All were fine except the microwave. Previous occupants had very obviously made bacon because it smelled like it and the usual grease/oil and fat that had exploded everywhere, quite literally. It was very gross. Needless to say we did not use the microwave at all. I even left a note for the cleaning people to remember to clean it before the next guests check in. The kitchen had no kitchen towels so we had to use smaller bath towels. The toaster also hadn’t been cleaned either it was sticky and plenty of crumbs were left underneath. Other than the kitchen being in need of better cookware, kitchen towels and a better cleaning.....we did enjoy our stay overall. Pool is huge and very relaxing.
Also, there was a note left for us upon check in that they knew the washer wasn’t working so they kindly left a reloadable card with money on it for the general use washers. We didn’t need to use the card so we left it. I did however text the property owner that the washer that wasn’t working was periodically making a chiming sound (it was still plugged in in the back). I asked her if I could unplug it or shut it down to stop the chiming since it wasn’t in working condition anyway....she never replied. I even had my husband check the phone number I text to make sure I had the correct number. I did have it right, but never heard back. We just lived with it and tried to ignore it as best we could. Incidentally, the note said they were having a repairman come the day we check out to fix it. So that probably won’t be an issue for the next guest.
Overall, it was nice, the property in general is nicely cared for and tidy.
Thank you for your helpful comments. We have addressed all that you suggested. The washer is repaired. We have addressed the microwave with the cleaning staff and that was a very rare oversight. We take pride in offering a very clean condo for our guests to enjoy! We also respond immediately to any issues so I am not sure what happened this time as I never got a message-so very sorry we were not able to address your needs promptly. We are so glad you liked the condo and the wonderful Maravilla pools and lovely tropical grounds. We hope you return very soon.
