Our overall stay at the Galvez was nice. No complaints. This hotel has come a long way! They serve chilled water with fruit and that really adds a wonderful touch after a very long drive from far away. The staff was friendly and courteous. Side note, the bar outside the pool area does close at 9:00pm. However, the bartender does... More

The mattress was too firm and the hall noise in the middle of the night was awful. Many great attributes.

The Hotel was clean, service was efficient and friendly, and the property is beautiful. The proximity to the beach is a definite plus. The poolside service was amazing and added a lot to our family's stay. One thing I didn't like was the tiny room and being in the room directly across from the elevator was noisy at times during...

This hotel has a lot going for it. The staff was helpful, polite and enthusiastic. The restaurant serves good food. Our room was attractive, roomy and comfortable. The shower was large and had a powerful ceiling mounted shower head. The pool was a salt water pool that benefited from a great sea breeze. The service and drinks at the pool... More

No in room refridgerator. One was delivered on request for medical supply storage, but it took up valuable table space as there was no plan for a fridge.

No advanced notice that overnight parking was $17.00. Sitting area (suite) was not very comfortable. A few dings on walls, water spot on ceiling, stain on carpet. We did enjoy our stay, but for the price of the suite I felt like it should have been it tip-top shape. Food was great - pool was great. i would probably stay... More

Enjoyed our stay. Only two minor complaints. One, the pool area provided no shade and no comfortable seating. The dining room was very cold in temperature.

Expected much more for a $320 room. Just wasn't anywhere near worth it. Parking is on the next block, with only front door hotel entry, and bell hops in the door like bridge trolls wanting $17.50 to go get your vehicle. Beds were comfortable. Very quiet. Cold air. Good sleeping. Polished marble floors in bathroom are pretty, but very dangerous... More

When we arrived greetings came from each of the gentleman manning the front entrance. Ross helped with our luggage to our room. Everyone at check-in was polite and efficent. We requested a clean~air room. We weren't sure "how" the room was any different tho' for extra charge. The view was nice and the room was comfortable. Housekeeping was very helpful... More

We booked a room and when we arrived they told us our room was sold. the rest of our family got their rooms but not us. We had to stay across town! They were very rude and I was displeased with all the positives I had heard, it was way different then what experienced.
