Excellent Buffet, with a few tiny corrections

We visited Bernardo's for the ""Mother's Day"" buffet, and found it to be ""over-the-top"" excellent. The variety of seafood, beef, turkey, vegetables, omelettes, pastas, and desserts was almost overwhelming. There are two things that do need improving; the boiled, peeled shrimp had no flavor, and were not cooked enough. They need to boil them with some crab boil seasoning and cook them a tad bit longer. However... view more

Very Nice

Very nice. I would go back to Galvez but if I could change those big beautiful windows into ones that opened that would be great. Also rooms are just okay for the money; not spectacular. Pool area, lounge and staff are all great.

love this hotel!

I loved this hotel! Galveston is one of my favorite getaway spots, and the Hotel Galvez is one of the nicest hotels in the area. I would definitely come back to this hotel- the spa was incredible! My room was clean, and it was nice to have wireless internet access. The pool area was where I spent most of my time though. The bartender?s were friendly and it was nice to have a swim-up bar. I will be going back to the H... view more

Check your bill carefully

The architectural splendors of the Galvez Hotel are fabulous. Unfortunately one can't eat the architecture. My waiter's appearance and demeanor almost made me mistake him for a busboy. Service was glacial even though there were only two tables occupied in the entire restaurant. The food was OK but not outstanding. Tea was served with a teacup but no saucer. I'm not talking about a mug here, but a teacup that us... view more

A must stay!

My boyfriend and I just got back from a weekend at Hotel Galvez, and it is truly the best place to stay in Galveston. It is directly on the beach with the best pool I've ever seen, including a swim up bar!. It is such a romantic & charming hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly, they seemed to really take pride in the hotel, which is hard to find these days. The grounds are beautiful, very tropical. All in all it ... view more

Loved this hotel!

My stay at the Hotel Galvez was great! It?s charming and well kept with a beautiful view of the water from our room. The pool area is probably the best part of the hotel and had a great swim up style bar. I would definitely recommend eating at Bernardo?s while you?re there, the food was great. The staff was extremely accommodating and had that true Southern hospitality feel. I really loved this hotel, and would stay... view more

Disappointing

Our party of 7 decided to try Bernardo's for dinner. We're sorry about that decision.\r \r The first disappointment was that the menu isn't the one they've posted online, at Galveston dotcom. The actual menu is abbreviated and less interesting. When asked why, they said, ""Oh, we're working to change that.""\r \r With average entree prices of $25, diners have a right to expect a trained waitstaff, but here, too,... view more

Less than expected

My first stay at The Galvez, expected a lot more. The room size was OK; furnishings were nice; TV not of current model, had limited channels; nice touch with the coffee maker and water; expected a mini-fridge in the room..not there; had only ONE bathrobe hanging in the closet; appreciated the safe in the room. \r \r On to the bathroom. Only two sets of towels; linen was of nice quality; lighting in bathroom was ve... view more

Not Worth The Extra $$$

Our room, with taxes, came to $200 per night. It had a great view, but was otherwise ordinary and small. Restaurant is overpriced and has no kids menu - or at least we weren't offered one. Great pool and friendly staff. Sign up for a free Wyndham By Request Membership before you go. One of the perks is free Internet access, otherwise it will cost you $9.95 per day. On the beach in front of the hotel we found cha... view more

Overrated, Go to NOLA instead

I concur with some of the other reviews posted so far. Not the worst hotel, but definitely not worth the $150/night paid to stay there. Walls are indeed thin. Service disappointing - no bellhops to unload luggage or open front door, not enough valets. I've stayed in nicer, more elegant historic hotels in New Orleans for much less. Don't expect much - I did and was greatly disappointed. More $ needs to be spent ... view more
