Great weekend getaway. I highly recommend this property for your next stay. The checkin was easy, the condo was very clean, and came stocked with everything you need to enjoy your time in Galveston. I particularly enjoyed the views from the balcony and the pool.

“'Jewel on the Gulf'”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2016

Diamond Beach Resort in Galveston TX is by far, one of the finest resorts on the Gulf Coast! The list of amenities are limitless! The pool area is exquisitely designed and so relaxing with gentle waterfalls beckoning everyone to enjoy it's beauty! The indoor pool is just as exhilarating with its perfect view of the Gulf & Lazy River! Overall, it's an amazing experience and I can't wait to return! It's a sparkling jewel on the TX coast!

“Wyoming snow to Galveston sun”

Reviewed 25 Dec 2014

We had a great time. Beds were comfortable. Master is fantastic. Remember to bring everything you might need. Extra bedding, extra towels for pool and beach. The pool is the best ever, nice bar and balcony to watch sunsets. Lazy river was not available... Too cold!

“"About as good as it gets"”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2013

This was our third trip to Surfside and we had a lovely time spending quality time with family members. Gracewaves is a spacious house with all the amenities needed for a large crowd. Rocking in one of the chairs on the porch with the cool southern breeze blowing off the Gulf is just as good as it gets! Looking forward to another trip next year!

Owner's reply: Sherri, you must have the wrong property. My condo is in Diamond Beach.

“Just Precious Moments”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2011

We stayed at the Diamond Beach property celebrating our 39 wedding anniversary. My daughter and her husband and two children stayed with us. We had a glorious time. Everyone we met were so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed every moment while in Galveston although most of our time was well spent on the property. The grandkidss just loved the water activity and game room. They enjoyed so much asked to return the following week-end. I would definitely come again and agan and again. The time spent were indeed precious moments to be cherished always.

“Best on the Island”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2011

After coming to Galveston for more than 40 years, I can honestly say that our stay at Diamond Beach was the nicest we have ever had on the island. The unit was beautiful, the facilities top-rate, and the staff quite helpful. Everyone from our 2-year grandson to our English son-in-law who had been dreading the Texas summer had a great time and would love to make this an annual family tradition. Thanks to the owner for making our time so wonderful.

My wife and I spent Spring Break, 2011 with our 16, 14 and 12 year old and each brought a friend. This is the most luxurious place in Galveston. It has multiple outdoor pools, one indoor pool and a lazy river. It is beachfront so you're right on the ocean. There is a private movie theater to reserve for free, a nice work out room, bar, younger child's play area, computer area and game room with pool table, pinball machines, shuffle board and a basketball game. The condo is beatiful with a flat screen television in each room, full kitchen, living area and balcony. The property is very well maintained. It is located in a great location - close to Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, movie theater, grocery store. The owner went above and beyond any rental property that I've ever been associated with. I would highly recommend this condo to family and friend.

Absolute paradise at the Diamond
Guest: Lauren(Pearland, Texas)
Date of Stay: 02/24/11 Review Submitted: 03/07/11

I had the utmost pleasure of staying at this marvelous condo at the Diamond for a weekend In February. I am already anxiously awaiting a return visit this summer. First off, the property is glorious! It is the closest to a tropical paradise one can find in Texas. The endless amenities include a gorgeous indoor pool, mini outdoor water park with multi level infinity pool and winding river, fabulous game room, spa, work out facility, etc. It caters to both the little ones and adults as well. We really enjoyed the bar and mini dance floor that we took full advantage of! The actual unit we stayed in was just as divine! One can't have it all! Most of our time was spent on the beautiful balcony overlooking the pool and the endless ocean. Priceless! The unit was beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything needed to make out trip pleasurable. It was immaculately kept, which is essential for a carefree getaway. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay and can't wait to return!
