The Galleon Resort

The Location of this resort is its best aspect!!! Located on the north end of the island it is waterfront, next to the Hyatt and within a block of Mallory Square. All of the Sebago waterfront activities start from the waterfront a block east of the location. A parking pass is included for one vehicle per reservation which is wonderful...but there are far more passes than spaces so parking becomes competitive so if you move your car out—there is a terrific chance you won’t get one when you come back...the parking is so very tight you need a couple of people out of the car directing into the tight spaces.

Were had reserved a One bedroom (housing 4) and a hotel room (housing 2), we booked another room for our last two in a close place called the Westwinds. Upon arrival we were told they put together the reservations which resulted in us having a two bedroom unit. That was fine for us. Space is at a premium at the resort and every inch has been efficiently utilized. The units are smaller than most time shares. The smaller bedroom would have been the hotel unit and it contained a queen-size bed a tiny table with two chairs and a compact refrigerator. If you stayed in that unit alone it would be very tight, but that wasn’t a problem for us since the unit was unlocked to the larger one bedroom unit. The bedroom for the one bedroom had a king size bed and a balcony to the water side.

The staff isn’t stellar but will assist you with any difficulties with your persistence.

There is a nice sized pool, which is set on the ocean side. There is a ocean beach which is about 30 feet in length. They have a bar at the waterfront which does allow for a great sunset view, which at Key West every day is all about the sunset!
