We stayed for 7 nights (following 7 nights in Barbados and 7 nights on a Royal Clipper cruise of Grenada and the Grenadines) in February 2015, this being our third stay at Galley Bay Resort & Spa. Hotel. The hotel is located in the small village of Five Island, on the west coast of Antigua, about a 30 minute drive... More

Lovely resort, we had a beautiful room on the beach and the staff were extremely helpful. However, the food was very disappointing, not always hot enough and the meat and fish did not seem very fresh or freshly cooked. Ismays restaurant for which you have to pay extra was very good.

Our daughter decided to have a destination wedding at the Sandals resort in Antigua. We stayed here to give her and her new husband a little privacy. While she enjoyed the 400+ young vacationers at their resort, we lavished in the luxury (no children allowed) of stepping out of our comfy little cabana right on to our private beachfront chair....

Very happy we chose this spot. We saw a couple of other resorts while we were there and Galley Bay is far nicer! The room was SPECTACULAR! We have stayed in many places and this was the best room on the beach .. step out your door and onto the sand! The waves do get fairly high at times but... More

We were delighted to be able to stay at this lovely hotel from February 5th to the 12th 2015. It is simply a haven (should I say heaven?) away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Hotel is right on the beach and the views are everything that one conjures up when you think of the Caribbean!... More

If we say that from our bed we could look out over the sandy beach and see the azure blue waves crashing onto shore it should give an accurate impression of this idyllic resort. Relaxation from the minute you arrive is infectious and instant. On the positive side the food here is outstanding - at all the restaurants. We had... More

Being able to fall out of bed, open the door onto the beach can not be beaten and although there are a few other points that could be a little better, the setting and feel of the place can't be beaten. The staff are very friendly and work hard to make you feel happy. (Almost too hard). The beach is... More

Galley Bay is a quiet resort (No children) with a great relaxing atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and helpful with excellent food both in quality and choice. Being in a beachfront room the sound of the sea was constant and lovely. There was lots available to do but really sitting reading and watching the hypnotic waves was all that... More

We stayed at Galley Bay for 2 weeks at end of Jan to early Feb 2015. We began at one of the Gauguin Cottages but found it disappointing and did move over to an Ocean front suite, which was amazing. The sea breezes, views and a better appointed bathroom made all the difference. The resort itself suited us perfectly. It... More

We visited Galley Bay Resort Feb 7 - 14 and had an excellent time staying in the beach front properties. Ocean views were phenomenal and the beach was great.Staff did a wonderful job keeping the waves at bay in all the restaurants (sandbags) - good work. Food was excellent and portion sizes were perfect. There was work being done on... More
