Galvez hôtel is a wonderful place to appreciate the service, the staff is amazing. Lilly at the front desk is really good at assisting, Carrie at the restaurant was sooo helpful. Ashley by the pool was fast and friendly. Service is everything nowadays, that’s the Galvez experience.

Valet service was shut down due to staff limitations. We were not aware of eco - anything but if there were efforts made they did at least not constantly virtue signal how eco-friendly they are. Enjoyed the stay as always, the hotel staff was professional and helpful. The wait staff was obviously new and still in the process of being trained and valet was down to only 4 members (hired more but only half showed up, sign of the times i guess).

I love historical properties so this fit the bill. Proximity to the beach is perfect as well as shopping and dining. Nothing is really very far on the island.
