5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Beautiful beaches, weather & people. A very quiet resort with beach front cottages. The rooms are cleaned 2x a day & are immaculate. The food was good for an all inclusive. Pay the extra $35 pp for the restaurant Islmays it is excellent & worth the $$. The massages were superb!! The manager Stewart went above & beyond to make... More

This resort is an all inclusive resort. What they don't tell you is if you want lobster it is a $25 charge. The beverages in the frig are free but if they restock you pay for restock even water. There were only three places to eat dinner, two of which are all inclusive (except for lobster) and one other restaurant... More

Absolutely idyllic location with excellent facilities. Predominantly couples or very small family groups (no children). We enjoyed a room right on the beach with a fantastic outlook. Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Pool area was beautiful, beach wonderful and we were lucky enough to see some turtle hatchlings during our stay. Would most definitely return.

Just returned from Galley Bay last night and we had a wonderful vacation. We had an upstairs beachfront premium suite which was spacious, well decorated, and extremely comfortable. The balcony had two comfortable chaise loungers which directly overlooked their beautiful beach. The restaurants were all good with plenty of variety. Sometimes the food in an all inclusive can be edible... More

Regardless of where you are in the resort you are never farther than 50 feet from the ocean. Best room location, if you like a sandy beach, are the ones between the Teepee bar and Ismay's Restaurant. These are newer rooms and have a better garden. All rooms except the cottages are along the sand. We had room 33 and... More

We chose Galley Bay for our wedding and honeymoon because we were looking for a "different" resort experience than we have had at other mega resorts and Galley Bay was spot on. Our beachfront premium room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Our view was to die for and we spent our mornings drinking coffee on our terrace... More

After researching possible destination for our honeymoon, we came upon the island of Antigua. It seemed like a Caribbean paradise not too far from our home in the United States. The island itself delivered on our expectations, but the Galley Bay resort easily surpassed all of our expectations. The resort staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, giving lessons on how...
