After researching and reading reviews for places to vacation in Antigua, we decided on Galley Bay. Our experience here was 50/50. Our room was incredible! Most of the rooms here are beachfront. We got lucky and had a lower level room right on the sand. Our room was everything we could've asked for! When we got there, we were informed... More

My father severed in WWII on the island of Antigua. We visited when I was a child and stayed at Galley Bay. This was, unfortunetly a different time and a different world, a one I will remember with great fondness. This was around 1960. My sister was there about 1o years ago and said it was still a great Island,... More

After much research we decided upon this resort as we were looking for a relaxing holiday, away from the crowds. This was definitely the right place. We stayed in a Beachfront Suite, at the Gaugin Restaurant end of the beach and it was absolutely beautiful. Some days as we lay on the loungers, on white sands, looking at the turquoise... More

We returned to Galley Bay for the 2nd time in July 2015 (previous visit in 2013). All that was great then is still there, with a few great improvements. We stayed in an upstairs Beachfront villa, which is still an excellent room. There's a very large bed, separate seating area, outdoor veranda and large inside bathroom with large bath and... More

It is hard to put across in words just how amazing Galley Bay is. Anything I write here is not going to do it justice, but I shall give it my best attempt. My new wife and myself traveled here for our honeymoon on the 12th of July for ten days. We were staying in the Gaugain cottages, which were... More

Galley Bay is a lovely hotel no doubt about that. We stayed for 2 weeks in late April 2015 in one of the premium beachfront rooms. The weather was perfect from start to finish, a balmy 30C every day with only a little cloud. The room set up and location was fantastic, you really can't beat being able to walk... More

I wanted to go somewhere amazing. I wanted to go somewhere with somebody who means so much to me. To a place that reflects our years of happiness, tranquility and near perfection.
