Just leaving the place after 1 week stay which we did as a last minute exchanged. This is our first time staying at the resort and in Key West. We drove from Md, stopped and picked up our son and drove down stopping in New Orleans French Quarter, Destin, Punta Gorda, the Fl everglades to Key West. The Galleon is the perfect location, few steps from Duval Street, easy to walk to every site in Key West. We circled the Island, from going to the aquarium (something to do for free if you have kids, but also for adults gives you lots of information).

Our stay at the Galleon was great!, from the easy, no wait, courteous check in. Louis and I forgot the other lady's name, were very nice.

The Tiki Bar, sorry that we only went there our last night, Grubby makes great drinks, 2-4-1 we order the angus sliders and the jalapeno poppers, they were out of the conch fritters.................:(

The pool attendant, I didn't get his name.......was very funny and friendly, to find a friendly face in the resort is always a +.

We mostly walked the whole island from the most southern point, beautiful walk, beautiful grand victorians you can also do Heminway's house on the walk.

We ate at the smoking tuna, the tuna in wassaby sauce was great! as well as their shrimp and chips.

We also went to the corner bakery in old town, we bought this heavy pecan bread that was huge for $7, but it was worth it. Their pastries are a little price. There is also market in town, forgot the name we though was reasonable if you don't feel like going to publix. Prices at the super markets are very reasonable, so for those who like to bring stuff, don't everything is very reasonable, (we thought it was going to be like Hawaii, everything overpriced)

We also went to the Whit Tarpon, for oysters at .50 cents, which were very reasonable around the corner from the Galleon on the board walk.

We did a fishing trip with tortuga which was fun, didn't catch anything (well my son caught one big enough to keep) though it was expensive but fun. My son did the Eco stand up paddleboat key west. also on the board walk around the corner from the Galleon resort

Going back to the Galleon, we stayed at a remodeled 2 bedroom unit on the 2nd fl of the A nbuilding. The unit has a balcony that can be accessed from the master bedroom and livingroom area. You can see the small beach, pool and tikki bar, but I don't think they have any units where you don't have ocean view. There is a small beach area that is very nice. There are plenty of beach chairs in the pool, the beach and the tiki bar. There is a hot tub, everything is very clean. People are very courteous and do not "reserve" seats. Perhaps is the time that we were here (17-24 Aug) but there was always somewhere to sit and enjoy the view. This is a wonderful resort and a we had a nice stay.

There is remodeling going on, but they are very careful not to disturb you, other than the seeing the crew trucks we hardly noticed any disturbance. I hope the owners, renters and other occupants take care of this resort. Our bathrooms were remodeled and beautiful with granite counters. I don't know if the Kitchen was remodeled, but ours didn't have granite counters and unfortunately the counter tops already had marks. Also the smokers, leave their cigarett buts around............discusting. Take care of the resorts! it saves on that additional maitenance fee we all pay...........I know we pay a lot in our resort...

We found the place easy to walk to every place! I felf safe everywhere I went.

great night life on Duval street.

Room Tip: We stayed in Bldg A 34, 2nd floor, we were happy with our view (unit was remodeled.) sorry we did n...

We visit Key West often and have stayed at several different places. The galleon has topped them all! We have a breath taking view of the gulf with French doors that open to a patio from both the living and bedroom. The kitchen and baths have been remodeled and are just beautiful! The pool and hot tub are clean with plenty of lounge chairs. The Pool girl is very friendly and helpful. My only compliant would be the front desk staff are not very friendly and at times rude. But I did not need to deal with them very much.
Will definitely stay here again.

This is a pretty sad excuse for a Tiki Bar, every time we have stayed at this resort the bartender claims she does not make Mojito's this is a lame excuse no mint or sugar, if I were the manager of this Tiki Bar I would make sure all the Bartenders knew how and had the ingredients to make the most popular Tropical drink for decades...I will not stay at this resort again for this fact alone, the bartender seemed to by very smug about the fact she did not have to make Mojito's because they are to complicated HUH!
I think if everyone asked maybe they would get on board...

We have been coming to The Galleon since my mother purchased a unit pre-construction in 1986. Over the last almost 30 years Key West has undergone a LOT of changes. However, we have always found our unit to be clean and fresh and you just can't beat the location! Since these buildings have been here nearly thirty years of course there is some wear and tear - but they are updating the kitchens, bathrooms, and furniture slowly. I see many reviews where people used their RCI points and ended in a small 'lockout' room - indeed, these are not the best accommodation but if you're using points you're sort of stuck with what they give you. As an owner we have a delightfully light, airy, and very roomy two bedroom condo without the lockout feature. For condos they are remarkably quiet - we only hear noises from the Marina - which we overlook - when it's very busy or when it's very quiet and some drunks wander through there.

The Galleon dock Bar and Grill can have very uneven service. These things are not part of the Galleon proper - rather they are leased operations - but in Key West the concept of Island Time is well known and this uneven service is par for the course.

Parking here has ALWAYS been a problem - even in the early days! You are NOT assured of a parking spot on site what with the construction trucks and other guests parking. You can park across the street or down near the Historic Seaport and pay to park your car - you're not going to need it anyway. But if you time your arrival for an off-peak time, especially in the early nighttime hours, you can usually make yourself a space somewhere. We even found a place to squeeze in our full-sized pickup truck.

So while this place is lacking many of the 'hotel' amenities, you have to remember that it's NOT a hotel. It's a condo complex for people who plan to stay at least a week and want a full kitchen and to be left alone. It works beautifully for that. If you want a mint on your pillow and daily cleaning or coffee service, then you'll be better served in one of the many lovely hotels on the island. This place is geared for families who are staying a while and want the room. For that, you can't beat it!

Room Tip: Skip the 'Lockout' units and get a regular two bedroom unit - and plan to stay awhile!

This Is Not Acceptable!! OuR Balcony View Consisted Of The Back Of A Green Supply Shed! There Was A Beach On The Other Side But we Never Saw It! All WeCould Hear Were The Pool Pumps In The Shed, Not the Ocean Sounds We Wanted! The customer Service Was HorribLe. We Were Lied To While They Smiled And Told UsThere Was NothingThey Could Do! How About Not Renting Out This Unacceptable Room!! Don't Waste Your Vacation Here!

While getting a drink at the pool bar the bar tender was terribly rude, we ignored it then came back the next day to her being extremely rude negative and very very disrespectful. After telling management about it the women manager / owner (very rude) told us not to drink there if we did not like her and that she does her job very well. She ignored our concerns and went straight to defenses remarks. Later while having a drink at the marina bar she walked up grabbed my drink and said that's the last drink ill be having at this resort. There was no reason for it other than she was upset I complained about her employee which I assume by the extremely low level of respect is her family member.
Even though the rooms and location were nice the service we received after spending 2,000 was terrible and disrespectful. I would never stay here again and I would never recommend anyone stay here. I would strongly recommend finding another hotel who respects there customers and concerns we may have.

The Galleon Resort's location could not be better. Without a car, it was so nice to walk to bars, restaurants, and shops on Duval Street. We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath room on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool and water. The unit was clean and updated with granite and stainless steel in the kitchen. The kitchen was fully stocked. The linens plentiful. The wall paneling surprised us and looked a tad dated. However, we later found out that it was not paneling but Dade County white pine wood. The pool was on the smaller side and the beach area tiny but that is to be expected knowing the prime location. The rooftop on the one building provided a beautiful view of the sunsets if not interested in the short walk to Mallory Square. It was a great vacation and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The four floor would provide the best view. The second and some third floor views on the buildings...
