Very relaxing and romantic without all the buzz. The staff could have not been any more friendly and hospitable . A great place for a honeymoon or just good R&R. We stayed for 8 days and wish it were more. Already have recommended it to friends as we will definately be returning as many people do.

We returned to galley bay 15 years after our first visit. It was all we remembered , but better. The accommodations, staff, food, ambiance were all outstanding. We were especially pleased by the tranquility and space, as the guests are dispersed around the property and there are never line ups,always room by the pool. the staff were particularly welcoming and...

I cannot give enough praise to this resort! The location was breathtaking, the white sand and azure sea that dons so many post cards just doesn't do this place justice. The staff were the appitamy of customer care, we felt spoilt by everyone but were greeted like family. The accommodation was kept spotless throughout and nothing ever seemed too much... More

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing place to stay on the beach. Galley Bay was exactly we needed. The food was good, the service was excellent and our room couldn't be any closer to the beach! We can't wait to return.

We just got back from a five night stay at Galley Bay. It was such a wonderful experience. From the moment we arrived, the staff told us to put our bags down. They told us that we are on vacation and shouldn't have to lift a finger. The property from the beach to the restaurants, pool and gardens is beautiful.... More

We stayed from Sat to Sat. reception was great, everyone was super nice. Cart ride tour and then to our upper level premium beachfront suite. The room was nice, however the showers have really low water pressure. Also the tele is quite a bit away from the bed so it's tough to comfortably watch tele in bed like I do... More

We stayed in the cottages which are the least expensive and the upgraded rooms are all right on the beach. However these "cottages" are less than 1 minute walk from the beach and have so much to offer! Each cottage comes with your own private pool, beautiful landscaping all around, and the bedroom and bathroom are in separate cottage buildings...keep... More

Galley Bay is an exceptionally relaxing place to stay for couples without children. Having transferred from the Verandah Resort (a terrible place - don't consider it), the Galley Bay was a breathe of fresh air...literally. The staff is exceedingly pleasant; always ready to please and working with a smile. The beach is beautiful; and only steps from your door without... More

We returned from Galley Bay July 20th after 8 days & are sad to be back in the states. I could never imagine the warm, funny and genuine people; "National Geographic" style scenes where baby leatherback turtles crawl/tumble into the sea 20 FEET FROM YOUR DOOR; incredible hiking outside the resort; endless quantities of increasingly impressive food at Gaugin's, Seagrape,...
