It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and Galley Bay surpassed all our expectations. The resort is beautiful, private and intimate. Great accommodations – we stayed in one of the premium beach front suites. Contrary to what I read on one of the Antigua websites, it was quite humid but the air conditioning in our suite worked great and swimming in... More

This is the WORSE resort ever! (I'm JUST KIDDIN) Where can I start? The front desk? MY GOD! Everyone at the desk was extremely friendly and professional. Upon checkin, I was greeted nicely by them and was handed a face cloth to wipe your face and hands! Wow? What a nice gesture and it was definitely needed after a long... More

Came to celebrate our anniversary - married at Galley Bay 8 years ago. This was our 12th visit - awesome as always! The staff are amazing and go above and beyond to satisfy your every need. And the rum punch ... lots of rum punch.

My wife and I have just returned from a stay at the Galley Bay resort. The staff were really friendly and attentive and always made us feel welcome and not just as paying guests. Nothing was any trouble. The food was excellent too. We stayed at a Gaugin Cottage, chosen for the extra privacy, and we weren't disappointed. The only... More

Overall this remains our favourite beachfront resort, even though some external woodwork needs replacing or decorating. Some of the towels also need replacing. Bats roost in some roofs & their droppings may appear in the room below. This year the sea was much calmer than our previous November visits. Boat excursions were much easier to board, there were no jellyfish,... More

Came for hubby's bday week in october... So this is late. Amazing resort. Rooms are perfect. We were on the first floor, with the gorgeous beach directly out of the back door. Romantic, but not tacky or corny. Just perfect.

Galley Bay was everthing we wanted it to be, amazing place, amazing food, amazing service, and we were there during Hurricane Gonzalo but we were kept informed what was happening by reception ringing our room hourly and were very surprised during the eye of the storm to get a tap on our door to find the assistant manager and one...

We stayed at Galley Bay for 10 nights and enjoyed everything beginning to end - it is true that this is a unique resort and there are some slight adjustments required just to tweak it to perfection however it is worth putting those to one side as the resort is just wonderful. If you want somewhere that is well kept,... More

Just returned from a week at Galley bay. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, the location is perfect and the food fantastic. The snorkeling in the bay is fun with plenty of fish to see. Take plenty of mosquito spray.
