Our family visits Galveston often and usually we book a beach house with VRBO or stay at the Galvez. I took a chance on this property because it is directly on the beach. It is a beautiful property that kind of reminded me of the Galvestonian. The rooms are updated and modern make sure to book a suite. The only downside is the check-in/check/out times 4pm and 10am. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone staying on the island.
