I wasn’t going to bother writing a review as it’s all been said before. The staff are excellent here. They really do enjoy their day and take pride in making sure you do too. The Caribbean used to have a reputation of lackadaisical and rude service. Its resorts like Galley Bay that have changed this forever. But as I mentioned,... More

Hotel is lovely and right on beach. Walk out of room directly onto beach. Food is fair but certainly OK. Easy place to relax and just chill out. Beach is beautiful and crescent shaped-very private which helps to avoid peddlers.

This was a wonderful place for our 10 year vow renewal . My husband and I searched long and hard for the perfect location and we found it. The staff could not have been any nicer and courteous. The food was exceptional (especially Ismay's) and the wait staff always made us feel most welcome. Our room was spacious and the... More

We returned here after our first visit 12 years ago. We found it just as we had remembered. -Amazing beach -Plenty of space to stretch out and relax (no, you don't need to stake out your chair each morning) -Beautiful, well attended grounds -Good food, great drinks (knock out rum punch) -Quiet, low key atmosphere (casino-goers, don't bother) So please...

Great beach front property, quiet, good food, very nice people. Highly recommend doing a day trip circumnavigation cruise of island, beautiful. The only down parts are the rolling power outages in the rooms, only open air restaurants so you will be sweating during your meals, and there are alot of bugs in restaurant area (mosquitos, etc). Glad we visited but... More

This was absolute perfection for a honeymoon. The staff was super friendly! Especially Kerry, Cherrisa, Keon, and Nola W. The general manager, Chris, was a class act. It was apparent that all of the workers loved to have you there. We did a lot of sleeping and a lot of eating. I consider myself a foodie, and Gaugin was super... More

This was our first visit here but we don't think it will be our last. The beach and location is very private and beautiful. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable. Highly recommend dinner on the beach at Ismay's (well worth the extra expense).

My boyfriend and I stayed at Galley Bay in July 2014. We had the most wonderful time from the moment we arrived, the staff were friendly, helpful and happy. The service was faultless. The facilities are incredible. The food - to die for! The accommodation was wonderful; clean, spacious, classy and comfortable. Everything we were hoping for! The pictures on... More

I could use every superlative known to man, but a simple 'outstanding' would be absolutely sufficient to describe the environs, the service, the food, the accommodation (premium beach front, 1st floor, room 36, in this case) the beach, etc etc.. A somewhat belated Honeymoon for my Wife and I - beginning with flying UpperClass on Virgin from Gatwick. What a... More
