My wife and I stayed at Galley Bay on May 3-9. We stay in a beach front suite on the ground level. Awesome! The ocean view from the room was great and the ability to walk right out your room onto the beach was perfect. The food and drinks were very good and we really enjoyed the ala carte meals... More

We just returned from 7 days at Galley Bay and am pleased to inform everyone that it was a great resort. The room was very nice, the food was fantastic and the staff were all very accommodating. The only complaint I could say was that there is no air conditioning in the restaurants but that they are Oceanside which gives... More

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and it was fantastic. The staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. The bartenders and cooks know their craft, all of the food and drinks were delicious and we couldn't get enough! The resort itself is beautiful, and what you want out of an island getaway.

We did a twin centre stay starting with Galley Bay then on to Bluewaters. Quaint lead-in rooms that give the feeling of being out in the lagoon. Own plunge pool which a resident duck took a particular liking to. Food good and beach area private and clean.

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.
