Great hotel with a wonderful view and enjoyed the ambiance. Only disappointment was the waitress service at breakfast time. The service was a little slow and they did not appear at all organized.

Stayed here mid week for two nights with my friend. We had a double twin room, which was clean and spacious and overlooked the front of the hotel. Parking is available nearby on the next street. Check-in at reception was swift, friendly and efficient. We didn't eat at the hotel but we did spend one afternoon by the pool. Due...

My family and I stayed for 2 nights during a road trip around Texas. The hotel looks stunning from the outside and this continued inside with tremendous service and excellent accommodation. You can use valet parking or park your car yourself in the hotels dedicated car park over the road. Breakfast was terrific and the outside swimming pool area was...

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...
