My now husband and I stayed here with family for our wedding and honeymoon. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect, and even checked in on me each day (I'm expecting) to make sure I was feeling alright (after a long day in the sun, I felt a little under the weather one day!)...

Having stayed at Galley Bays 'sister' resort, Palm Island, last year, we thought we would try Galley Bay seeing as its a direct flight into Antigua and no connection. Whilst not trying to make comparisons needless to say we did! The resort is set on a stunning stretch of beach with well kept gardens and grounds. The whole resort exudes... More

Returned for our 4th time still execellent resort. A few additions since our last visit ie larger sunbathing area around pool and barefoot grill for quick lunch. But without a doubt the staff make the holiday a winner. Looking to book again as soon as possible.

This beachfront property is absolutely stunning - perhaps the prettiest beach we've ever seen in all the Caribbean. My husband and I visited in March for an anniversary trip. The water is clear and beautiful hues of turquoise and aquamarine and the sand's like brown sugar - pure perfection! We opted to stay within the Gaughin-inspired cottages and couldn't have... More

Just back for Galley Bay....the resort exceeded my expectations and they were pretty high to start with! Here's what I think was great - and much has been said previously by other guests * the setting - the grounds, the lagoon, the wildlife and plant life. It's worth an early start just after sunrise to take a stroll around...there's hardly... More

There is not much to say that I haven't already said about Galley Bay. The resort and the employees are wonderful and this time was no exception. We did have some not-so-pleasant circumstances this time that had never happened before. When we arrived in Antigua we were terribly upset to find that American Airlines did not bring our luggage from... More

To start the resort is less than 100 rooms and no children so for an adult vacation it was paradise. From our arrival to check out the staff were amazing, always helpful and smiling with no request to small or to big!! Our room was beautiful and cleaned spotless daily. Biggest decision was to go to the spectacular pool or... More

Mike and I spent a week in March with friends Jane and Albert and from the moment we arrived with a rum punch the staff and service could not be bettered. Jane and Albert's de luxe room was on the beach while we were next door up the stairs. Barbecue and rum bar on the first night was a great... More

Sea, Sun and white sands. I can't see how Galley Bay could be improved. From the first minute one arrives you are welcomed with a friendly smile and warm hospitality and this continues throughout.

Great place , lovely people......but between sleepless nights due to tree frogs , and running out of the premium vodka every night , they could do better. Power went out every night for a few moments to half an hour- somewhat expected of island life. Dinner on at Gauguin and dinner on the beach were beautiful , but the mosquitoes... More
