We have returned to Galley Bay for our 5th time in 3 years and we never tire of this place. The staff continues to welcome us home and is truly happy to see us. Staff is one of the big reasons as well as the peaceful manicured surroundings we keep returning. We prefer the cottages but the beachfront rooms are... More

Had a wonderful week at Galley Bay resort. Staff is amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. Location is fantastic, right on the beach. Low density resort, just enough people to have fun and make friends, but not crowded. Very good food and excellent selection of liquor. Only minor complaint is wine selection by the glass is limited, need to pay extra... More

We traveled to Galley bay the last week of July! We had an amazing time! We stayed in a beachfront suite! Our room was spacious, clean, and you cannot beat the view or the 2 steps it took to get into the sand! Request the bottom floor!! We stayed between the Sea Grape and Ismays! Those rooms are updated and... More

I've been there during my honeymoon in July 2009. The place is fantastic, so quiet and comfortable. My cottage was really amazing, perfectly isolated, and clean. I really think it's the best resort of the island!

If you want to slow down,relax, get to know some new people in a quiet atmosphere this is the place for you. Nothing moves fast here, unless they recognize you at the bar where you will get your drink quick. The food was good most of the time, don,t be in a hurry to eat though, the views and ambiance...

Galley Bay was the perfect place for my husband and I to celebrate our honeymoon. The staff was very friendly, the all-inclusive food and drinks were great, and we were very well taken care of. Any time we needed something, the staff met our needs and did it with a smile on their faces. The beaches are beautiful and the... More

My husband and I had an awesome time at this resort and would definitely return. We stayed in one of the cottages that was just off the beach by the pool. This felt very secluded and private, definitely wouldn't have traded it for one of the suites on the beach because those felt a lot more exposed to passing guests.... More

When we asked for recommendations as to a all inclusive adult only resort in the Caribbean this was the resort that kept being mentioned. We have never stayed at a smaller boutique resort but booked it figuring let's see. This place exceeded our expectations in every category. We stayed in the beach rooms which I highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary. Galley Bay far exceeded our expectations. Friendly staff, good food, absolutely gorgeous beach and much nicer accommodations than I had expected. (Their web site does not do the resort justice, imo). I can't say enough good about the resort and I'd be echoing everyone else here anyways. Suffice to... More
