First of all let me say, had I been the one to pay for this vacation I probably would have only given one or two stars, but this was a reward trip from my husband's work so I feel bad complaining since it was free. I agree with other reviewers that this is definitely not a luxury hotel. We had... More

My husband and I celebrated being married for 25 years and chose this destination for a romantic week together. We couldn't have chosen a better place if we tried. From the minute we entered the reception and was handed a rum punch to the minute we left (:() we had the most fantastic and wonderful time. The location is idyllic,... More

Just back from spending a week here with my daughter. Couldn't have asked for more. Food excellent, cocktails excellent, ground floor suite opening on to beach..... Along with a short transfer time from airport, a warm welcome from staff & friendly service throughout our stay what more could we want. We experienced none of the reported problems with mosquitoes &... More

All in all a very nice trip but the food and the rooms are at best a UK 3 star! The beach is lovely and the staff was very friendly! You will have a very nice holiday at galley bay but expect to pay for some extras even though it's a all inclusive.

We stayed at Galley Bay for the first 5 days of our 10 day honeymoon. The property is very scenic and definitely caters to couples looking for a very private, low key type of stay. Everything is designed with couples in mind (there is no real communal pool or beach, the clientele is primarily older couples) which was perfect for... More

Galley Bay This resort is on a large site with two storey accommodation. We stayed in a Deluxe Beachfront apartment which was upstairs, with a large balcony. The room was spacious with a big walk in storage / wardrobe, and a separate large shower & toilet. We found the room rather dark due to the heavy dark furniture and ineffective... More

We recently returned from an absolutely perfect honeymoon at Galley Bay. The resort was tranquil, gorgeous, natural, and fun! We loved how close our room was to the ocean. We really enjoyed all of our meals, particularly those at Gaugin's. We enjoyed the non-motorized activities, especially kayaking to and snorkeling at the nearby shipwreck, hobie cat lessons with Linroy, and... More

My husband and I juggle demand careers and an equally demanding toddler, so needless to say, we were looking forward to this trip more than a kid looks forward to Christmas. Galley Bay did not disappoint. It's the true Caribbean holiday we all dream about, especially during the middle of a polar vortex. And that beach screen saver we all... More

We had booked our flights, accommodation and private transfers through British Airways, and on arrival in Antigua were transported quickly and efficiently to the resort where we were greeted like long lost friends by the resort staff. A quick check-in process and we were taken by buggy to our Gaugin Cottage. We chose this option as we are not particularly... More
