A Caribbean Seaside Resort conveniently located in Galveston best describes Diamond Beach Resort and Spa, which is unequivocally the preeminent resort in Galveston. Our 2 bedroom/2 bath condo is located on the third floor at Diamond Beach and sleeps 4-6 people. As you step inside our condo, you will be greeted by floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico. When you open the sliding glass doors, you will step onto your private balcony overlooking one of Diamond Beach’s pools and the gorgeous Gulf seascape. The balcony is a great place to sip a cup of coffee in the morning before everyone wakes up or have a nice glass of wine in the evening with your family and friends.
The master bedroom is an oasis for rest and relaxation with its chandelier, deluxe king size bed, handmade Italian headboard, flat screen TV and DVD player, and oversized private bath with his and her sinks and a rain shower. Once you try the rain shower, your spouse may never see you again because the rain shower feels so good. The 2nd guest bedroom has two twin size beds with the same deluxe mattress as the king size bed, custom headboards, flat screen TV and DVD player, and a tub bath adjacent to the room. The condo is tiled with stone floor throughout and has its own washer/dryer.
The condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen and has granite counter tops. You’ll have great views as you prepare pancakes for breakfast or eat your favorite take out foods from the large number of restaurants within a short distance from Diamond Beach. The large dining table seats 8 and is a great place to catch up with your family and friends while you enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the Gulf. The living room has fantastic views of the ocean, a queen sleeper sofa, and flat screen TV and DVD player.
Diamond Beach boasts of many amenities including:
Concierge: A 24 hour concierge desk for your convenience with a staff knowledgeable about the island’s best attractions and restaurants.
Pools: Three pools consisting of a 750 ft. lazy river with a swim up bar and grill, a gigantic 300 ft. tiered cascading pool (which includes a kids’ pool) and Galveston’s only indoor heated pool for year-round enjoyment. The pools have plenty of lounge chairs or, if you want something more private, you can rent a cabana with a TV for the day. The kids (and adults too) will love the fantastic water slide plunging them into the lazy river. The swim up bar, grill and slide are open during the weekends, summer through the middle of fall (or until the kids turn blue).
Bar: After a relaxing day at one of the pools or the beach, you are steps away from Bar None which offers great drinks (my favorite is the Miami Vice) and breathtaking views of the ocean in an intimate, stylish setting. You’ll appreciate the sleek, contemporary feel, perfectly complemented with a wraparound veranda for the best sunsets on Galveston Island. Bar None is open during weekends.
Spa: Like chocolate but not the calories? Try Lulu’s Chocolate Spa. Pamper yourself with the Chocolate Fix Massage or one of the many other cutting edge treatment techniques that provide five star relaxation and wellness.
Gym: The Look Better in Your Swimsuit Center (aka The Exercise Room). This place may inspire those of us (like me) who would prefer to have a tooth extracted instead of going to the gym to actually get on a treadmill with spectacular vistas of the Gulf.
Game Room. Tabletop shuffleboard, foosball, pin ball machines, a billiards table, and a Wii Room for the kids. Sometimes even parents get to play.
Cinema Room: If you are in the mood to go to the movies, all you need to do is step into the private theater room at Diamond Beach while you enjoy a bag of popcorn. The concierge has complimentary movies, or you may select from our private library or bring your favorite DVDs to play in the cinema room.
Kids Jungle Room: With its jungle murals, games, blocks, oversized bean bags and TV, this is the place to be for the hip toddler crowd.
Business Center: If you must work, at least you’ll have great views of the indoor pool and beach. The business center has computers for your use as well as complimentary WiFi and is open 24/7.
White Sand: Next to the lazy river, there is an area about the size of a volleyball court with imported white sand. This is perfect for small kids or a volleyball game. While it's not a beach, this area is great for making white sand castles or having fun in the sun.
Beach Access: If you have time to go to the beach after doing all of the activities at Diamond Beach Resort & Spa, all you need to do is open the door on the property next to the lazy river and walk down to the beach. Diamond Beach is located just steps away from the beach. There’s no need to cross the road or jump in the car.TripAdvisor property ID 3607512...Read more

This was our first time to Galveston and Diamond Beach Condos but we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The condo was beautiful and our family felt right at home. The grounds and the ammenities at Diamond Beach were among the best we've ever experienced. We loved the private cinema, the pool and location. We would definitely stay there again - and in this particular unit for sure!

This condominium does not disappoint. Not only does it provide everything you need in a vacation condo, you are surrounded by an upscale decor that at the same time is very comfortable. When you're not looking at the beautiful scenery out the windows (which by the way have motorized retractable window shades which are not found in all Diamond Beach condos but are nice to have for very sunny days or privacy at night), you can sit in the living room and just admire all of the decorating details! The bedrooms are just as nice as the living area and the beds are wonderful. It was a real treat to spend our weekend in this beautiful condo! You can tell the owner really cares about her guests.

The condo is beautifully appointed, and the view of the Gulf at sunrise made us want to live there! We took advantage of the "make you look better in your swimsuit" room, large indoor heated pool, the game room with pinball machines, shuffleboard, foosball and basketball. The access to the beach was ideal and the privacy much nicer than a resort on the seawall. Located close to 61st Street and the seawall but still secluded. We enjoyed sitting on the patio relaxing with a bottle of red wine that Maria left for us. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

My wife and I left the cold of Minnesota to stay in Maria's wonderful condo. We were greeted by a nice bottle of wine on the dining table. It's very nice and felt like home after a couple weeks. We stayed a one month. The weather was a little cool for the outdoor pools. We did manage to use the hot tubs several times. They are very nice. We used the fitness center frequently. What a nice way to work out, overlooking the the Gulf.

The moment you step into Maria's condo, you find yourself in the lap of luxury. The condo is well appointed with fine furnishings, decorations, linens, brand new appliances, a well equipped kitchen and immaculately clean. Things get better once you step out into the balcony facing the Gulf of Mexico, lazy river, pools and hot tub on the ground floor. This is my favorite spot! I can read a book and gaze at the ocean. My children were excited about the amennities and could not figure out which one to do first. They enjoyed the lazy river and pools on the ground floor. The interior climate control pool was beautiful and faced the gulf which was very helpful on one of the rainy days we had. They also enjoyed the game room and movie theater. My husband enjoyed watching his favorite sports on the big screen TV and we enjoyed our stroll on the beach. There are lots of restaurants in the area that will deliver and the food was fantastic. If you are more of a gourmet cook, you will find all the necessary kitchen gadgets to whip up a great meal.
