we stayed here with our family. the pool and the bar at the pool was amazing. the kids had a great time as well as the adults. the guests were very friendly and nice. the staff was very accomodating. the pool area could have used mored help, but the help that was there worked happily non stop. the rooms were on the small side but it didn't matter. this was one place where we just used the room to sleep. the beach across the street was also very nice. you could rent chairs and umbrells to protect you from the sun. we had a great weekend there and would recommend it to anyone.

We celebrated my brothers 50th birthday at the Galvez. It is a grand old hotel. Being old, the rooms are smaller than most modern hotels but they were furnished very tastefully. The bed was super comfy. We got seaview rooms but there is no balcony and the windows don't open so there is not much need to upgrade.

My mother got room 501 which is supposedly haunted but, apart from the room keys not working on several occasions, there was no discernible ghostly activity. However, it did make for some lively conversation.

We had breakfast, dinner and Sunday brunch. At each, we were impressed with the flavor. I would recommend the fresh local seafood for dinner. And for breakfast, the bagels and locks were delicious with more salmon than you could possibly wish for. The Sunday brunch was terrific, especially the shrimp and oysters.

Overall the service everywhere in the hotel was friendly. They really made us feel at home. I especially liked the live piano music played in the grand hall at night. It realy made for a memorable weekend and I would definitely return.

Room Tip: Not really necessary to get the ocean view because there is no balcony.

Excellent location, parking, staff, nice overall ambiance. Very nice room amenities. Nuts, water, wine, and toiletries. Only thing the other guests were loud in the halls after 10 PM. Really enjoyed our stay. Will return again. Very good value for the price.

Hotel Galvez is Tops on my list!! This upscale hotel is Classy in every way from the beautiful corner spacious rooms (regular rooms are a bit tight), the dining for breakfast and dinner, work-out facility, pool and outdoor grounds. The staff is pleasant and helpful, the entire hotel/rooms/bathrooms/cabana areas and pool are super clean. I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this hotel! It would be ideal and romantic if it were more of an "adult only" hotel, but it's when the families and kids are running around and splashing in the pool that make it less personal and romantic (people take a hold of and control your youngsters)! The downtown Strand area is perfect for an early morning/evening night stroll with lots of resturants to choose from and not far from the hotel. I appreciate that the hotel offers complimentary parking in the garage located across the street and it's situated just steps from the beach. We will stay at this hotel for our couple get aways time and time again!

Room Tip: The corner rooms are more spacious, quiet, and out of the way of hall traffic.

Had a wonderful vacation at the Hotel Galvez and Spa. Beautiful hotel, courteous service, delightful and enormous swimming pool, and a fabulous spa. I had the best massage ever there! Great sauna and beautiful outdoor meditation pool, too. A lovely, lovely stay.

Thank you for your review and for staying with us. Yes, The Galvez Spa has been voted "Best Spa" on Galveston island numerous times so please come back and try another massage. Once you relax in one of our new lounge chairs at the pool and have a cocktail there's no reason to go anywhere else. Thanks again for staying with us.
