our favorite hotel

The hotel is amazing. It is spotless. The staff was remarkable: they were helpful, friendly and polite. We ate breakfast there, and it was delicious. The pool is gorgeous, too.

We enjoyed Moody Garden's Rainforest Pyramid. We saw beautiful palm trees, orchids, and other foliage, as well as parrots, monkeys, frogs and a sloth. We also witnessed a butterfly hatching from its cocoon. The place is awesome!

Great Hotel

This is a great location at great rates for a 4 star. The rooms are a little small but that lends to the historic charm. The pool bar and pool have been expanded since I have been here years ago, and my friends said the spa is top notch. They have a valet if not busy that can run you up the block to Strand or restaurants. Definately, will be back. Service very professional.

If you stay at the Galvez, leave your chairs and umbrellas, and just walk across to the beach and rent them all set up.

Great location, great facility, good service

This hotel is very good four star hotel. It has a great lobby, lobby bar, and restaurant. The pool facility is the best in the market. The location is excellent for guests wanting to be close to the beach. The hotel provides good parking options. The front desk staff did a great job checking us in and out.

The restraurant next door, Smiths, has the best breakfast on the seawall. The beach is directly across the street from the hotel.

Good Value. Great amenities

The Galvez was a smart, historic setting. Great Pool and wet bar. Quite crowded but still nice atmosphere. Friendly pool staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable but a bit claustrophobic compared to most other hotels we have stayed in. Close to Downtown and historic streets, but also close to poorer parts of town with big contrast. We would stay again but try and get a suite at reduced cost.

Great getaways.

Everything at the Galvez hotel was as great as the last time. We will come back the next time we need a one to two day getaway. There are many things to do if you look for them and not just go to the Strand or the beach. We did both, but also drove all the way down to the end of the island and came back a different way then I45. It was fun and we looked at a condo which might be a thought for a summer home.

Stewart Beach is great on check-out day. They have showers there so you can rinse off before you head home.
