My wife and I have just returned from Galley Bay on the 26th August 2015. From the moment we got there we were offered a glass of champagne or a rum punch which was needed after a long flight from the UK. The staff were absolutely fantastic and so so kind at all times. Anything we wanted was never a... More

Galley Bay feels like Paradise. We enjoyed the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The views were breathtaking, the food was varied and delicious, the accommodations were roomy, comfortable and very clean. There were plenty of activities available and the staff was helpful in meeting our interests. The grounds were well maintained and lushly tropical. It was all that we hoped it would... More

We stayed at Galley Bay for 9 days starting August 14th, 2015 (Rm #63). We have always been weary about all-inclusive resorts and have typically stayed away from them. However, we landed on Galley Bay based on the previous reviews and we were NOT disappointed. We totally lucked out on selecting Galley Bay as our first attempt at an all... More

My wife and I chose to stay at Galley Bay for our Honeymoon. We spent a week at the resort and loved all of it - the friendly people, the great food, beautiful beach and tasty drinks. We took advantage of the water sports, the hike to Fort Barrington, the Carribbean BBQ, and some of the resorts paid excursions. We... More

We visited for a week with our adult children and had superior beachfront rooms, which I think are the cheapest category, and we thought the best! The rooms are well appointed, spotlessly clean, not vast but open directly onto the wonderful np each with your own private covered terrace and beach beds. The hotel is wonderfully run headed up by... More

Just when my wife and I thought there couldn't be a better all-inclusive hotel than Elite Island Resort's sister property (Palm Island, located in the Grenadines) where we visited last year, we have just returned from a wonderful one week stay at Galley Bay Resort which rivals that perception. Beginning upon our arrival at the property, we encountered lovely Ammielle,... More
