There’s nothing like a getaway to the sunbaked shores of Galveston Island. The enticingly warm sands embracing your toes, the soothing sounds of crashing waves, and all the remarkable things to see and do on the island give many reasons to visit. While there are many places to stay on Galveston Island, you won’t find many that provide luxury accommodations and convenience like the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Galveston Seaside Resort and the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Galveston Beach Resort. With spacious villas and amenities for the whole family, these resorts are the perfect place to escape and indulge as you enjoy the very best of the Texas Gulf Coast.

Holiday Inn Club Vacations® Galveston Seaside Resort
Fully-furnished two-bedroom suites and villas, on-site dining, and tons of space to play. What more can you ask for? This is exactly what you’ll get at this Beachfront Luxury Signature Collection resort. Each two-bedroom suite is outfitted with premium décor and linens, comfortable beds with soft pillows, and other luxurious appointments. Save money as you prepare all your meals in your fully equipped kitchen and soak up the sun on your balcony or private patio. Each unit even comes with full-sized washers and dryers, so you can leave your larger pieces of luggage at home.
With so much comfort and luxury, you may be tempted to stay in your room. But then you’d be missing out on everything else the resort has to offer. Walk just a few minutes and you’ll be on the warm sandy shores of the island, or leap into the on-site swimming pool for a refreshing swim. Work up a sweat at the fitness center and show off your “A” game on the basketball or tennis courts. Stop in at the Café snack bar for convenient salads, snacks, drinks, pizzas, and more. At the end of the day, pamper your tired muscles in the whirlpool before heading back to your room for some well-earned rest and relaxation.

Holiday Inn Club Vacations® Galveston Beach Resort
Set on a tranquil beach away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Galveston, Holiday Inn Club Vacations Galveston Beach Resort is a great place to stay for families and couples looking for a romantic getaway.

If you’ve got your youngsters with you, let them play in the Kids’ Activities center complete with foosball and air hockey tables and arcade games.
