“Our 33rd honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Our stay at Hotel Galvez was quite a fantastic experience. The ambience and tranqulity of the hotel compounded with a very friendly and caring staff added to the joy of our stay as we celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary. We are looking forward to our future stay as Hotel Galvez, definitely it will be much sooner than our next wedding anniversary. Without a doubt, one of the world's finest!

Highly recommend Hotel Galvez & Spa.

Pros: Spa was incredible (recommend Michelle & Pauline), great location on the seawall near the new Pleasure Pier, swim up bar was great, free hotel rental bicycles which we used a couple of times, historic hotel charm, great staff

Cons: Construction in the lobby (May 2013) meant there was a temporary bar in a conference room, food at the pool was sub-par, weekends at the pool can be extremely crowded but Friday and Monday were great, small room but with a great ocean view (for a historic hotel we expected the room to be small)

This was the first time for my wife and I to stay at this property and we'll be back. We've stayed in Galveston at the San Luis and Tremont House which are both excellent hotels but we like the charm/location of Hotel Galvez.

Room Tip: Ask for a high, ocean view floor. The front desk is very accommodating.

We had a really nice experience. It was elegant, relaxing, and my four year old granddaughter loved her first trip to the beach!

Paid for a suite. Dirty carpets, only one sink in the bathroom, shower in the bath and you had to be a midget to use it. Several TV channels not working, windows fogged up/dirty so no good view of ocean.
