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.

Beautiful Antique/Beach decor

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. The beds were extremely comfortable. The master bedroom bathroom was huge. Loved the shower. Our view from the balcony was beautiful looking over the pool and out onto the ocean. Watching sunrise and sunset from it was breathtaking. It felt like home away from home. The amenities at the resort were great. We enjoyed the lazy river and cascading pools and our kids loved the Jungle room. The resort is very family oriented which is nice. We spent a lot of time in our room in the evenings just relaxing and playing games. It was great having games, kids toys, and a great family dvd collection provided in the room. We would definitely stay at the Chocolate diamond resort again if we are ever in Galveston.

Okay but not great

  • 3 of 5

The Diamond Beach facility as a whole is very nice and the staff was helpful.The game room is great, the pools are very nice and the lazy river was a huge hit with the family.

This particular property was cute but that is where it stops. If you plan to cook anything, it is best to bring EVERYTHING you need. The kitchen was poorly stocked, no decent knives, no cutting board, very few pans and REAL silverware, really? The floors were filthy and left all of our feet black.

This property also only has 1 key!! Very inconvenient for a family of 5. Even the concierge upon checkout commented, "this is the weird one with only 1 key". Keep in mind there is not covered parking with this property either.

Friends of ours stayed in a unit on the 3rd floor that had multiple keys, covered parking, well stocked kitchen and decent cleaning supplies. If we return to Diamond Beach, we will definitely look at other properties.

Beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

This unit is so adorable and decorated perfect. We had everything we needed and enjoyed the condo. The property is very clean. Great pools (not heated) and hot tub. Beach access is not very good. We had a stroller which we had to pick up to get down the path. My mom struggled walking down the rocky path etc too. Says spa at condo, it is closed, which we wanted to use.

Beautiful but Lots of security to be aware of, and not enough beds for 8 ppl

  • 5 of 5

Ok, so this place was super nice and new. The resort has tons of amenities too, like a game room with free games, and amazing pool with a lazy river and spa, indoor pool, fitness room, bar, etc...

This place is also super strict on security. Everyday renters must go to the front desk and get new wristbands to be on the property. Also there is only parking for two cars, so anyone else must park outside the facility which is 6 dollars a day. Not a lot of money, but a pain bc there is no direct access from that parking lot to the resort. (I'd recommend dropping your stuff off first then driving around and parking). You can pay the parking fee by phone though, so that's convenient. To get in and out of the building you use key fobs, and then you have keys for your actual apartment.

The actual apartment is decorated fabulously, with plenty of cups, plates, silverware, ect... The bedrooms are nice but have no windows. all light comes from the front room. Not really an issue, but just letting you know.

As for sleeping 8 people, I'm not sure this is possible without an air mattress. The sofas dont have pull out beds! We had 7 in our party, and one person slept on the twin day bed in the living room. This messed up our plans a bit, bc I had promised my single friend a room, and then my husband and I only had a twin bed to share in the living room. Maybe I didn't read the description closely enough though, so that's why I gave this place 5 stars. Also, the owner tell you to bring beach towels, and she's not kidding! There are none, so bring them!

Anyways, super nice, know that security and rules are strict, and you will have a great time!

Also the staff at this resort were super nice, so that's a plus!
