The Galley Bay Resort and Spa is like a friendly fever that enters the soul and slowly reaches out to the mind and the body. This 40 acre 98 room Mecca is nestled in a cresent beach setting with the bluest hues imaginable as the sea meets the sky only interrupted by puffy clouds and occasional rainbows. My wife and...

We booked through Kuoni and stayed in a Gauguin cottage. This is less costly than the beach side apartments and provides good privacy being surrounded by tropical plants and palms with its own plunge pool. We were told that the Gauguin comprised 2 separate buildings linked by a breezeway. What we got was an air conditioned bedroom with a few... More

We arrived to Galley Bay in December, just before Christmas to celebrate the wedding of our daughter & new son in law to be. It truly was the wedding of a lifetime in paradise. We made the first trip down last August 2014 to plan the wedding & when we arrived in December 2014 with 53 of our closest of... More

Very pretty grounds on arrival. We were greeted by the delightful Ismay and handed a rum punch so strong it took my breath away - which didn't stop me enjoying it! Checking in was quick and easy. We stayed in a premium breachfront suite: a very large room, large bathroom, two sinks, double shower, all very clean. Staff are consistently... More

So Galley Bay was not exactly what I expected. It was MORE than I expected! The property was so beautiful, the grounds green and lush. Every manner of butterfly and bird was flitting around our beach front villa. We stayed in the Premium Beach Front Villa's which I would recommend. You can walk right outside or down your stairs and... More

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

We visited Galley Bay in May of 2014. It is the only holiday destination that we have visited that we would return to every year if we could! And will return in the not so distant future. If you can't decide on where you need to go for your next holiday, Galley Bay is a must and will not disappoint!... 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

Just returned from this lovely hotel. My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks,and I can say in all honesty,it's been the best one yet. 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
