Spent a delightful week here to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, and from our arrival we were made to feel special. All staff , no matter what they were doing made an effort at all times to say 'hello/morning' etc. We had a Gaugin cottage G11 and found it to be secluded and meet our needs from the plunge pool to...

My husband and I as well as our friends/neighbors stayed at Galley Bay for a week (April 18-25). This resort is nothing short of amazing. Our ground floor beach front room (51) was really nice - I was a little nervous as it's in the first building next to The Seagrape and I was anticipating noise, however it was absolutely... More

We had an idyllic holiday on a beautiful beach in a pretty resort, made exceptional by the staff. We fell asleep and woke to the sound of the ocean from our walk out, oversized room. We enjoyed fine dining and attentive but unobtrusive service at Ismay (worth the upgrade charge) and Gaugin. We spent a morning sailing the coast and... More

My husband and I purchased a week at Galley Bay on the island of Antigua at a charity auction. We did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised at this beautiful seaside resort. There are three lovely restaurants, swimming pool with waterfall. The staff were friendly and very helpful. There were many options, sailing, paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling... More

I was nervous at first when my husband booked our trip as I have ALOT of food allergies and was apprehensive about possibly getting sick on our vacation. Within the first day of arriving Chef David met with me and made sure my meals were prepared with all my allergies in mind. I have not had a meal out in... More

Stayed at Galley Bay Resort 17 -24 April for the 1st time. This was without question the best resort we have been to in the Caribbean. If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday with excellent accommodation, staff, beach, food and friendly atmosphere, this is the place for you. Walk straight from your premium beachfront room onto a lovely beach and... More

Wonderful resort with perfect service, spacious and well-equipped accommodation, beautiful silver-sand beach immediately outside our chalet, excellent food from a choice of restaurants, fascinating bird life in on-site sanctuary, lovely gardens, and more facilities than we could use in a week. It was everything we hoped for - and more!

A little sample of 'how the other half live' for my 40th birthday way exceeded our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble we felt truly pampered and everyone was relaxed, it was not pretentious in any way. Everyone was attentive and helpful without being in the way, accommodation, food and service was exemplary. A treat at the spa was worth... More

We just returned from spending the week of April 19-25, 2015 at Galley Bay. We enjoyed everything about it. It is small, holding only 200 guests, but everything is perfect. The 3 restaurants were all very good. Everything is right on the beach. Very laid back atmosphere. No loud music, no crowds at meals. The staff couldn't have been any... More
