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.
