We just returned from our second visit to Galley Bay this year. We visited in April and loved it so much, we decided to return for a week in December (7th-14th). And based on our previous experiences at Galley Bay, we will definitely return again and again! The review I posted on Trip Advisor in April pretty much sums up... More

PROS: 1) Consistent, attentive and friendly service. Some of the best we've had at an all-inclusive resort. We were always being asked if everything was okay and if we were enjoying ourselves. 2) Small resort and feels private - even at full capacity there are only about 180 guests staying there, and you never feel like you need to fight...

My boyfriend and I saved up for over a year to book a dream 10 day Caribbean holiday. We were recommended Galley Bay by a colleague so decided to go for it! We were presented with cocktails, champagne and towels on arrival which was such a lovely touch. We had never been on a holiday like this before and we... More

My husband and I just returned from our week at Galley Bay. Overall, it was a good week. We loved that it is adults only and very small. If you are looking for low key, Galley Bay is your place. We did have a few comments and suggestions regarding specific items. Most of these are minor. Room: We stayed in... More

Galley Bay Resort and Spa was everything we wanted in a honeymoon and more! The resort itself is not so big that you ever have to wait in line or fight for a seat with the best view, but just big enough that you see new people every day. The times of the restaurant kitchens are scheduled, so you do... More

Just got back from our 5th visit to Galley Bay. Every time we leave we say we've got to spread our wings and try someplace new. We do, but we always like Galley Bay better. Our room is right on the water. When the resort is full to capacity, it has the feel that no one else is on the... More

My partner and I have just returned from an amazing 11 night stay here, its a beautiful, relaxing and very nearly perfect resort. The very small (if not picky) negatives 1st and the only reason I did not give a 5 star rating: The food - I would definitely agree with a previous reviewer that 1 buffet restaurant where you...

We love Galley Bay for many reasons - quiet, no under 16s,excellent staff. The staff are mainly the same as when we came for the first time and we have got to know them well. Having said that repeaters do not get preferential treatment but take the time to get to know the staff and they will treat you just... More

This was our second visit to this beautiful hotel and must say we enjoyed our second visit as much or more than our first visit. My wife and I spent a lovely week there at the end of October 2014. As a returning guest we were upgraded to a superior beach room and half way through our holiday we got... More

..... when a fussy hotelier pal of mine came back from here telling me it was the best holiday he had ever had, we had to go! Beachfront rooms near Ismay's really are that! Six foot of patio and straight onto the beach and then downhill for 20yds to the sea -awesome! There's quite a break on the beach when... More
