The condo was fabulous, we had 6 traveling with us. Two adults and 4 kids. The condo has everything for entertainment, games in the side board to pass the night or a rainy morning. The location is close enough to walk to the pier on the Seawall for coffee or hop across the street.The pool was not heated, it was the end of March and the pool was in the upper 60’s for temperatures and many of the on-site amenities weren’t open during the week as it was off-peak season. I could imagine that it is amazing in the summer, peak months. There is a game room on the 4th floor, everything is complimentary.

Loved Precious Moments. It is beautifully updated, clean and fresh. The furniture and décor are lovely, comfortable and inviting. Location and building amenities are excellent. We enjoyed the heated pool in December. We can't wait to stay there again.

The Diamond Beach complex is beautiful and this unit had a lovely view. But other 2BR unit floorplan has much bigger balcony. This unit gives up outdoor space for indoor dining table. The unit has been partially remodeledâ€”primary bedroom, living, and dining area were comfortable and premium quality. However, second bedroom with bunk was shabby and dark. Balcony furniture was shabby and filthy. Not worth extra price for â€œGoldâ€ Ryson property. Diamond Beach is short-staffed unfortunately so pool rules were not enforced, selfish guests blasted music day and night, hogged chairs and umbrellas, and degraded experience. Bring your own umbrella and chairs just in case. But beach access is also easy from this property.

Loved the place! My new go to when planning a trip to Galveston. Bathtub faucet needs repairing and the master shower is treacherously slippery.
