I will start by saying I expect we will return to the Galleon for a future trip to Key West. Why? It is close to so much at the marina whether you are looking for restaurants, water sports, or browsing at some of the small shops. Other restaurants and shopping along Front or Duval Streets are a short walk as well. Our unit was recently updated which made it far and away the best 2 bedroom/2 bath one I have rented in Florida 25+ years. We had an excellent view of the Marina as well. The Tiki Bar was a great place to watch the sunset.
What do you need to be aware of? As many others have written, the wireless Internet access is beyond terrible. To the Galleon management, if you read these reviews, please get the message. You need to get this fixed. There is no reason in this day and age to have such poor wireless service. You may think everybody is there to relax without a care in the world, but the reality is people do need internet access for either business or personal entertainment. We burned through GBs of data on our wireless plan to access the internet via our smartphones. Thanks to Tripadvisor I already planned for this expense, but it should not be needed at the price we paid. After extensive research, I found the most reliable connection was at the Tiki Bar. Go figure.
The other awareness item is that the beach area is very small. I did not set foot on it because it was not important to me, but it was a bit of a disappointment to my teenage daughter.
For those of you who do not care about wireless internet or a small beach, then the Galleon is a great place for all its positives. For everybody else, I would still recommend going, but do so with your eyes wide open. For me, "I'll be back".
