There are plenty of wonderful places to eat on the island, lots of tours available, and so much history. Mel Fischer's Museum is worth the visit. The Conch Train tour was very good—a 90-minute narrated tour. Parking was a nightmare—the area below one of the buildings was being used for construction materials and workers who were repairing the docks and decks after Hurricane Rita went through a few days before. The places where parking was available were VERY tight. We had to back up three or four times to get in a space and then had to squeeze out of a barely open door.

After the first morning, my coffee and newspaper arrived almost before I could pull my chair up to the table. The staff is friendly and more than helpful with information and recommendations. The hotel sports a fresh water pool, cable TV, FREE use of snorkeling equipment, direct dial phones and AC. The least expensive rooms share a bath so you might want to spend the extra $10 so you won't have to do that. The only drawback I could find about the place is that as most places on the hills of St. Thomas, you have a few sets of stairs to climb to reach the hotel. On the plus side, the higher you go, the better vantage point for your view of the island.

To get to Ostello Brikette, get off at the Bar Internationale stop and walk BACK about 200 meters. Internet available, laundromat, post office, and small grocery store nearby.

Living in Palm Beach FL, we made the decision reluctantly to leave our boat home (there is a great marina at the Galleon) and enjoy our week as the out of area tourists do. WHAT A GREAT DECISION ! We discovered so many more things to do and met some wonderful people by spending more time at the resort than we would have if we had taken our boat. Everything we needed was right there.
If you are planning a trip to the wild, wacky, wonderful world of Key West, we both highly recommend the Galleon as the place to stay.

The welcoming drink/appetizer buffet was quite wonderful and there were a couple of very nice lunches provided for those who wished to participate at extremely low prices ($5) especially considering Key West dining prices! Tho' housekeeping left a little to be desired, the resort is beautiful. The regular 1 and 2 bedroom units are wonderful and have great views, of course! Our little studio had no view (trash cans) so I wouldn't recommend one for anyone wishing to spend much time in their room.
There are conveniently located grills for those wishing to bbq their own dinner and a nice fish cleaning area with very accomodating 'munchers' to eat up the discarded portions swimming below.

There was a side by side refrigerator and nice size kitchen, although the microwave did nothing but spark--thankfully we do not cook.
The reception from the staff was great and they would go out of their way to make sure you were having the best possible time. It could not have been more enjoyable.
