We stayed at Grand Galvez for two days. This hotel is currently under MAJOR construction. When we pulled up to the property we valeted our car but were not offered a cart or help with our bags. We checked in and went to our room on the third floor. From the moment we stepped out of the elevator we were in a construction zone. There are half painted walls, cardboard on the floor, and exposed lighting fixtures. When we entered the room it was clean and adequate for the stay. Beginning the first night our bathroom faucet would buzz and shake the walls causing the water to run. This kept us up at night. We went to the pool the next day and the pool area is beautiful and has a swim up bar. There were two girls working the pool area and neither of them offered to get us drinks or food for the 4 hours we were at the pool. They were serving others around us but never offered us service. We had to swim to the other side of the pool to get drinks and bring them back to our chairs. Room service food was offered from 7am-11pm and the it was quality food. I would not return or stay at this hotel until the construction is over. It is very noisy and takes away from the vacation.

Beware of Renovations! The place is a mess! Not worth the rates they are charging. Staff is rude. Not to mention the large plastic sheets from floor to ceiling in the lobby! Feels like a murder scene from the show Dexter! Could not stay there...it triggered my PTSD. Hotel refused to refund entire amount they charged because of their weak renovation disclaimer! They need to be more clear about the renovation mess and how extreme it is...to the point of triggering PTSD!
