Said to be the oldest hotel on the island, Hotel Galvez has a haunted room 505. Reports say that very few people actually stay all night in that room, because there is an eerie presence that makes them feel uncomfortable. The mysterious scent of gardenias is said to be a clue to the ghost’s presence.
