We really enjoyed the beautiful beach, wonderful food and drinks, friendly staff and awesome premium beachfront suite. We were on the ground floor so opened our patio doors right onto the beach. There are screens on the patio doors so close them, as you may see the odd bug or mosquito or sand crab or gecko or tree lizard. The... More

Galley Bay was disappointing in several areas. We were sold the holiday by Caribbean specialist company telling them that our priorities in the Caribbean are Good food which must include plenty of fresh fish choices and must allow us to swim in the Caribbean sea. Menus were uninspiring, with little fish choice. Salmon and Sea trout featured more regularly than... More

Gorgeous beachside setting with lovely tropical gardens and staff that treat you like family. Totally unpretentious and uncrowded, relaxation from the minute you arrive. As with the last 3 reviewers, we stayed in a beachside premium suite: huge bed, bathroom with his and hers showers and huge bath. Patio (or balcony upstairs) right on the beach with outside shower and... More

We have extensively traveled around the globe,but have never been anywhere like Galley Bay. We stayed in deluxe ground floor room,opening onto the beautiful beach,with our own sun beds right on the beach,plus two... More

We returned to Galley Bay and once again enjoyed our visit. As In past visits one of the best parts are the staff. They are the most friendly and welcoming people we have come across including gardeners and other support staff. OK, things to consider. They have Supirior Beach Front rooms that from the beach side are starting to look... More

We stayed at Galley Bay mid-January and had an amazing experience. The employees were extremely friendly, the grounds were beautiful, the food was excellent and the beach was paradise. Our stay was absolutely perfect. The extra for the Premium Beachfront was worth it. The room was large, clean and exceeded our expectations with our own walk out to the beach... More

We had our daughter's wedding at Galley Bay. The goal was to have the most relaxed wedding in the nicest location possible. Chris Ghita (the manager) made it perfect. There were no problems and no surprises! Everything went according to plan. Most of the guests stayed for a week. Chris organized a rehearsal dinner the night before, the wedding and... More

We have just returned (21 January) from a relaxing 10 day break and would recommend this resort to anyone looking to enjoy some gentle and fun time in Antigua. Like us, you can expect to return home delighted with the experience and keen to return next year. At Galley Bay, guests conspire with staff to create an atmosphere that is... More

Great for people not looking to do extreme sports and a lot of activities. A lot of privacy when you want it, great beach, good food, etc. Perfect for honeymoon, which is what we did. Be ready to wake up early and go to bed early because everything runs on 'island time' here.

The views were magnificent, the ambience very good. The buildings were beginning to show their age but the staff were working hard to keep up with the effects of weather and time. The sea was a bit of a challenge, large waves and a strong undertow meant the red warning flag was out for most of our stay. It was... More
