My husband and I chose Galley Bay for our wedding ceremony and honeymoon after researching several resorts in various places. I read all the reviews on Trip Advisor for six months before we were scheduled to leave. Most of the reviews were great but there were naturally some negative reviews. I was a bit reluctant after reading their complaints about... More

Tenth visit and the feelings are still there, walk along the beach and you feel as if you are the only person on the sand, walk through the ground and get feeling of serenity, sit in any one of the restaurants and have the feeling you are going to have a gastronomic experience and the feelings go on. After ten... More

We were looking for quite some time for a nice all-inclusive resort that offers private pools. Sandals was one of the choices but it was just too big, too many people, and the last time we went to a Sandals, it wasn't that good. Then we found Galley Bay Resort and had a good feeling about it. Rightfully so, it... More

After a year of preparing for our son's wedding in October, we decided to take a "honeymoon" of our own. Galley Bay Resort did not disappoint. The nature preserve, pristine beach, delicious cuisine and friendly staff are a treasure worthy to be found at the end of the rainbow. We actually saw mutiple rainbows over the beach during our stay.... More

It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and Galley Bay surpassed all our expectations. The resort is beautiful, private and intimate. Great accommodations – we stayed in one of the premium beach front suites. Contrary to what I read on one of the Antigua websites, it was quite humid but the air conditioning in our suite worked great and swimming in... More

This is the WORSE resort ever! (I'm JUST KIDDIN) Where can I start? The front desk? MY GOD! Everyone at the desk was extremely friendly and professional. Upon checkin, I was greeted nicely by them and was handed a face cloth to wipe your face and hands! Wow? What a nice gesture and it was definitely needed after a long... More

My wife and I have just returned from a stay at the Galley Bay resort. The staff were really friendly and attentive and always made us feel welcome and not just as paying guests. Nothing was any trouble. The food was excellent too. We stayed at a Gaugin Cottage, chosen for the extra privacy, and we weren't disappointed. The only... More

Overall this remains our favourite beachfront resort, even though some external woodwork needs replacing or decorating. Some of the towels also need replacing. Bats roost in some roofs & their droppings may appear in the room below. This year the sea was much calmer than our previous November visits. Boat excursions were much easier to board, there were no jellyfish,... More
