I wanted to thank everyone at the Galvez Hotel for an amazing stay last weekend, especially the Concierge, Melissa Hall. She went above and beyond the Call of Duty to make sure that our stay was the best we have ever experienced. Also, every employee was friendly and the Hotel was so majestic and grand. I hope everyone will get...

Sunday brunch is $43 for adults and well worth it. Definitely recommend reservations year-round. Our waitress Kay was absolutely stellar. Prime rib had delicious seasoning. It was an all-around relaxing wonderful time with friends.

The pool is great and secluded. They have swim up bar that serves really good drinks. This hotel is across the street from the beach too! so you can walk to the beach and also you can walk to restaurants.

This was our second time for the Sunday brunch. The first time it was excellent all the way round. Food, service, experience, ambiance. This time the food was still excellent, but this was overshadowed by the horrible set up and experience. We had a reservation for 1100 and arrived a little before 1100. There was already a huge line of...

The Galvez is a beautiful hotel with a great location. The pool is beautiful, with amazing landscaping, service and food. If yiu are going to hang out during the day, think about reserving a cabana for a little extra shade. The hotel is within a mile walk to many restaurants. It is across the street from the beach. If you...

Physically, the Hotel Galvez is an extremely pleasant place to stay at. The facilities, both inside and outside, are elegant and well maintained. The rooms, though small by today's standards are practical and comfortable. Our bed was quite comfortable. Our room was ideal for a good night sleep -- in a quiet corner of the building, it could be darkened...

Rooms are on the small side for the price point, especially the bathroom. But the overall staff service was excellent.

Thank you the review of your stay at Hotel Galvez & Spa. We are pleased you appreciated the service. Due to the historic nature of the hotel, our rooms may be small when compared to new properties. We feel that our expansive public areas and service make up for it.
