“Try the swim up bar too!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I really enjoy the bar while I wait for my wife to get ready for a night out on the town.
The swim up bar is our favorite. Ben is The Man!

“Beautiful place for a drink”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Stopped by to have a drink and desert at the piano bar, and it was a very enjoyable evening. Loved the music, nice drink, and a superb key lime pie. If you want some old school charm, stop by the bar and relax a bit.

“pricey but worth it”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We were staying at the hotel so we figured we'd try out some of their food while hanging out at the pool. Great burgers and fries and served in huge plates so it doesn't fall out on your lounge chairs.

Thank you for the feedback on food at the pool grill at Hotel Galvez & Spa. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the burgers and fries at the pool. We hope that you will try our Galvez Bar & Grill, located inside the hotel, during your next visit. We have a great bar bite and restaurant menu which ranges from $9 for BBQ Quesadilla to $35 for a 16 OZ. Ribeye Steak. We look forward to your next visit.
