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

Perfect relaxing trip to an amazing resort. We loved the view from our room (#50), the food was delicious, drinks were plentiful, and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful. The welcoming talk was very informative. Our favorite place for the sunsets were the Adirondack chairs at the TeePee bar.....the whole resort is like a private oasis, and... More

The deluxe beachfront room was the perfect size for honeymooners. Two sinks in the bathroom, walk in closet and free wifi were all a pleasant surprise. We were on the second level and loved our private balcony with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Staff went out of their way to make sure we felt welcome and that all of... More

I just returned from Galley Bay on Wednesday and I miss it already! We had a great time on our honeymoon. We stayed in a cottage - G15 and it was beautiful! The room was clean everyday and the fridge was stocked up. There were fresh robes when we arrived. The pool was a great addition for afternoon dips. The... More

There is no doubt that Galley Bay deserves five stars, when I compare to other places I have been, I am however not completely convinced that it deserves such a high trip adviser ranking as an all inclusive resort. The setting is undeniably gorgeous and the grounds well kept, the staff are friendly and attentive and the food good, there... More

Galley Bay is simply a stunning hotel, in a beautiful spot with wonderful staff. This was our second visit and the hotel was even better than last time we stayed. We chose a "superior beachfront" room as we like to be at ground level and not have anyone above us. The room was perfect, right on the beach, beautifully decorated... More

I last visited Galley Bay in 2005/2006 after 5 previous visits, but was worried that the ongoing expansion of the Resort to almost double its size might impact on the overall holiday experience. Anyway this year was time to dip my toes again in the water so to speak. With the total room count in excess of 90, an additional... More

It would be all too easy to repeat what I have said on previous visits. The lovely staff, food and facilities. Yet it would be so true. However, the management are not sitting on their laurels and are constantly fine tuning a resort that unbelievably gets better and better. The Gaugin Cottages have started to be refurbished. They were lovely... More
