We discovered Galley Bay in 2009 when we visited for lunch one day while staying at another hotel on the island. Then and there, we decided to return as guests. We wanted a small, intimate, all-inclusive resort - not an easy thing to find, wanting to avoid - at all costs - large resorts like Sandals with hundreds of rooms... More

We went to Galley Bay with our friends/neighbors. We stayed in the Superior Beach Front rooms. Our room was wonderful! First, the housekeeping staff kept our room very clean and comfortable. The room was beautiful with a king size bed and anything you need to make your stay perfect. The beach & ocean were right outside our back door! The... More

I read many reviews before I went to Antigua. Some of the best reviews were on Galley Bay. Although their were a few that were concerning we picked GB anyway. I have to say we were very glad that we did. We had a great vacation. There was only one time that we had bad service at the Sea Grape.... More

Galley Bay is a beautiful place with friendly people who know how to make you feel special. If you want to relax this is the place to go. Beautiful uncrowded beach, great food and great atmosphere. This was our 3rd time and we met lots of repeat customers who keep coming back --they really do make you feel like "family".... More

We are a couple late 40’s early 50’s who have traveled to several Caribbean AIs. We prefer smaller, adults only resorts. Rooms – We stayed in a Gauguin cottage, which was very nice. The other rooms are all directly on the beach, and we debated about an upgrade to one of the beachfront rooms. However, we particularly enjoyed the privacy... More

We had a superior room right on the beautiful sandy beach. That is the upside to that category room. However the bathroom is pretty basic but serviceable and the room size is not that big. However if you upgrade then you are not -mostly- in a stand alone semi detached bungalow with your own outside private area on the beach,... More

We booked Galley Bay in July 2010 via our German agent (after having seen its web page on the internet) for a week in January. We received a confirmed booking and vouchers for the hotel and a week before leaving, sent an e-mail with our plane arrival times and asking about a pick up. The reply told us that we... More

if you want a place to relax, yet also do some sightseeing, this is the place to be. if you can get an island tour by Simon (Island Adventures)he is the best tour guide ever! Also, take the boat tour to Barbuda on the Excellence. Was well worth the money.
