“Nice Resort Right on the Water”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

We decided to try this property so we could be close to the water. In that respect it was perfect. The front desk staff when we arrived was very welcoming and offered good advice for our stay. When checking in we were told that we could request a late check out but when we tried to do that, a different front desk person said they don't offer that because the room needs to be readied for the next guest. We had a room in Building G, which faces Front Street and is over some stores. Our room was relatively nice. One big problem was that there were outside lights at both the front and back of our unit so at night our room was lit up. We had to put a blanket over the back window in order to shield some of the light coming in. The air conditioner was also very loud. Woud not recommend these rooms.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms in Building G - they are noisy and too bright at night

This resort is perfect. I ride a handicap scooter, and the elevators are nice and in every bldg. The whole Key West has accessible sidewalks and shops. I can vacation here with no problems.
The accommodations are excellent. There are plenty of two bedroom condos.The living area is large with a couch, love seat and chair area. The dining area fits 4 comfortably. There is a full kitchen fully stocked with dishes and supplies with all new appliances including a washer/dryer. The master room is spacious and looks right into the ocean from the king size bed. The second room is large enough for two comfortably. The outdoor pool is heated. The beach is tiny but enough to get your feet into the ocean. These are timeshares, so most guests stay a week or two.
As for location - The Galleon is on the ocean about two blocks down from Duval and one more from Mallory Square. We have stayed in other places on the island and will only stay here from now on.

The visit to the Galleon is an annual must to enjoy Key West. Great pool and views from the decks. The location is fantastic and you really do not need a car as you can walk all over the old town and more. We rent bikes that allow you to cover the entire town; favorite ride is through Truman Annex on to Zachary Park.

This is a time share resort and a nice place and good location. The only problem was that for the expensive price we paid our room was on the street above a couple of stores! Our room smelled of mold, the bed was hard and the room was so light from being on a public street it was like sleeping with the lights on! I would not recomend these noisy rooms.

Very nice place to stay! Most are recently redone. Walking distance to all of downtown! Easy to rent bikes nearby to tour the island. Concierge was on site and helped a lot! The rooms were spacious. Ours overlooked the pool and water which made us want to spend time at home. Cooking was easy in the new kitchen.

We had a wonderful stay at the Galleon Resort in a beautiful penthouse apartment overlooking the pool and the Gulf. The resort is in a prime spot overlooking on the edge of the island overlooking the Gulf.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the pool, gulf or marina.

It took two weeks of deposits from my time-share to get one week at the Galleon, New Years week, and well worth it. Place is in great condition, newly remodeled. Kithcen was fully equiped, flat screens in all the rooms were great, furniture and baths were great, and loved the larger balcony with pool view. All festive. Nice service and folks. New Tiki bar has a great subset cocktail. Highly recommend if you can get it.

Room Tip: Depends on what you want. We liked the music from the bar, some folks might prefer a quieter marina...
