Stayed multiple nights over a three week period; found the WiFi quality the least desirable aspect and on my TVs I wasn't getting all of the cable channels. Because it's located on Galveston Island and it's proximity to the beach, all buildings are raised on stilted foundations. Stairs are wide and each building has ramps for access. Both (unheated) pools have not been cleaned out (palm leaves, etc.) yet are always running (pool pump). The Spa is large and seems to be maintained daily. There construction in the back area of the park where they are doubling the number of spaces around a large "Lazy River" and new bathhouse. Crossing over the roadway to get to the beach access hasn't been an issue during the off-season; not sure how busy the roadway is on-season (no crosswalk or lights). Walking to the beach is about 5-8 mins. Vehicles are allowed to park in an area on the beach; walking the beach has been awesome; water appears to be very shallow; there have been folks fishing from shore everyday. The grounds of the park are kept pretty neat, although, the recycling area hasn't been cleared out in the weeks I've been here. Many of the RV'rs are monthly/seasonal and the community is very laid-back. There is a large, fenced area for dogs. Each bathhouse has a women's and a men's restroom with showers as well as a laundry room. There is a small market and a restaurant a short distance past the beach access road. Seawall street, stores, activities and other beaches are about 12 miles or so east. When it's not windy, you can hear, and from some sites, see the ocean. From the bathhouses' balconies you can see both the ocean on one side and the bay toward the back. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

14 miles outside the city but area quiet and right across the street from the Gulf. Galveston is beautiful city with lots of things to see and do. 1.5 hrs from Matagorda...another beautiful area to visit. This is our 2nd visit to this campground and would return again. They are urrently in the process of enlarging park...but done without disturbance to campers.

Nice park with plenty of construction going on. That was a slight inconvenience. Cable was advertised but we had no cable for the first 10 days. WiFi was advertised but no service for most of our stay. The ownerwas a personable fellow. By next year at this time and the construction completed this will be a great place to stay. The real negative for us was the lack of a WiFi connection. Once resolved I would highly recommend this park. We will return in the future. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a well located park on the western end of the island but it is getting long in the tooth from faded signs, missing light bulbs, broken street signs, and other signs of neglect. The staff is very friendly and willing assist if you have problems or need to make changes. They were always working. The park is expanding; however, progress is very slow. Beach access on Galveston Island is good and one access point is almost across the street. They offer very good, reasonably priced pizza which they will deliver and bill to your site. In the summer this is a kids' park with lots of amenities for kids. We have been several times and will go again. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here many times. RV resort about 7+ miles west of end of Galveston Seawall on West Galveston Island ( many residential developments west to San Luis Pass). Resort needs some updating, but has concrete driveways, strong but slow wifi, limited cable, strong rooftop tv reception., grass growing, palm trees and many family activities( putt putt etc needs updating) one pool very cloudy and other pool fine. Rec room upstairs. Waffle breakfast on Saturday morning $6.pp. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Many tall palm trees, so check location of palm trees on site when slide and extended awnings out. Must put parking hanger in your car or they will tow. Beach across the road is private but many public beach access's near by that you can drive a car onto.

Suggest reservations on holidays or during summer...Galveston is a wonderful place after Labor Day when tourists are all gone..Beaches are empty and restaurants un crowed.

First of all this park isn't "Big Rig" friendly although the receptionist stated it was and we'd be fine. We have a 40' Class A Motorcoach and 24' trailer we had no room. The grassy areas in the park aren't cared for. The gym smells like mold, the laundry smells like mold. Both the adult pool and the kid's pool were murky which means they need more chlorine. I couldn't allow my kids to swim in them because I was scared of them getting dysentery. Please cleanup this site. Great potential if they work on it more.

Lots to do for kids, but the place is overgrown and pools are cloudy and dirty. Showers were slimey. I don't think we will be back.

People were nice. This place needs a serious overhaul and update. Could be great but it was overall just meh. (Mediocre, lackluster, unexceptional and/or uninspiring.) We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is older but the owners are working very hard to upgrade and make repairs. They are in the process of building a lazy river float area. Don't think it will be ready for this season but it will be a nice addition. Nice grass between each site but minimum shade. A little close but not bad. It will be a nice family park once all additions are make. It is 10 miles back into Galveston where all the action really is located. Owner/hosts were very friendly and accommodating.

We had a wonderful time staying here. Park is clean, staff is wonderful. We didn't have our Gkids with us this trip but the park is very kid friendly. We made reservations to come back next Memorial Day. Their new Lazy River will be open. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

"Faded glory". This park looks like it used to be great, but hasn't had any maintenance in a long time. There is a mini-golf course with pirate statues and sharks and such amusing things, but some of the arms are broken off of the pirates, and the paint is peeling. There is a huge hot tub, but there are piles of dirt on the bottom of it. Even the "spa" signs are broken. The adult swimming pool looks promising until you look closely - broken concrete, dirt covering the bottom. On the plus side, the staff were very friendly, the sites are nice. They have a couple hundred movie DVDs available to be borrowed by campers, sort of like a library. WiFi was so-so, which is better than most parks we've been to. I suspect (and hope) that the maintenance issues will be taken care of for the summer (high) season. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Moody's rain forest was excellent, the aquarium was good. The Ocean Star energy museum was excellent. The Houston Space Center was a weird combination of Smithsonian Institute artifacts and carnival arcade. Both awesome and disappointing.

This park is located in the Jamaica Beach area of Galveston Island, about 15 miles from the heart of the town of Galveston. It is across the road from a nice stretch of beach. There are concrete driveways and site pads, picnic tables, full hookups, laundry and cable. The sites are reasonably sized. The WiFi is a bit unpredictable. It took us a couple of days to figure out which of the wireless networks gave the best results. They have two pools plus an indoor spa. Service is good and they have a large selection of DVDs that they loan out at no cost. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at Jamaica Beach RV for the past four years, each time for 2-3 nights while visiting friends in Galveston. Each year we have noticed improvements: office expansion, spa addition, more RV sites being added. The resort is family-run and friendly. There is a nice duck pond on the grounds, mini-golf, swimming pool (looks great but unheated). We had a site on the south end of the park which was nice but the back road entrance and corners make it tight to turn a big rig. We enjoy staying here and would return.

Price is for monthly rate. This park is very clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and competent. There are many imenities such as a spa, swimming pool, minutiar golf, exercise equipment, etc. The campsites are not right on top of each other with level concrete pads to park on. Each site has a table, palm tree, 30 or 50 amp service, water, sewer, and cable. There is a good view of the beach across the road from your camper. The roads are paved and there is plenty of room for navigation. We had no problem reaching our campsite with our 36 ft motorhome and tow. The cable works well with around 40 channels to choose from. The wifi works, but like almost all campgrounds we have stayed at, is very slow. We had a good Verizon signal, se we just used that. There is no specific dog run, but there is plenty of grass to walk your dog on. The road in front of the campground is fairly busy during the day, but slows down at night, so road noise is not a big problem. You can also hear the waves at night when you are outside, but not from inside your rig. We would stay here again. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.
