With all the dire reports of seaweed and stench in Galveston this summer, we were very wary about this get away. The Diamond Beach Condos was a perfect choice for us! Our unit was 6th floor on the end end of the property offering a gorgeous view of the gulf and the we could see all the way down the seawall to the amusement park.
The accommodations were first class, all new appliances, wifi, awesome shower heads, granite in bathroom and kitchen, full size washer/dryer..I could go on! The owner of our unit is an artist and had decorated the condo with several of her creations. They were beautiful and we loved the personal touch.
The pool was the main draw for us since we knew the beach would be seaweed infested. What a pool! By the parking lot, we could tell the condos were pretty full. We didn't have any problem find four chairs together anytime and the lazy river was a perfectly refreshing way to enjoy the water. The pool bar was open and frozen drinks hit the spot. Know you are paying resort prices, but the atmosphere dictates expense.
At the very end of the seawall, you are slightly away from the traffic and noise of major hotels and restaurants. So, if quiet and peaceful relaxation is what you are looking for, this is your place. We will definitely return!
