We booked with owner Marco Della Patrona on TripAdvisor because we loved the picture from te Breeze cottage's deck - and were not disappointed. We spent a week in our rental car touring the historical, cultural and beach destinations on the island of Antigua and came home every night armed with local groceries to try to make an interesting island...

We made flight plans for Antigua before realizing that it was cricket week and the island was booked solid. Galley Bay Cottages was one of the few accommodations available. We also had friends who were staying at the resort so the proximity was good for us. We were happy to find it given this was a last-minute trip, and if... More

We have stayed at the Villa, the largest property at the Galley Bay Cottages. The house is perched at the top of a hill, overlooking the ocean, Galley Bay Resort and the Armani private estate. The vegetation provides complete privacy. There is no sound to be heard, except for birds and rustling of trees. The private garden is enormous, entire... More

Shamefully, I never left this resort during my four day stay. Why? Because it was simply peaceful, beautiful, calm and relaxing. The beach itself is as good as it gets and a swim is a must (careful: jellyfish alert!). The all inclusive resort never feels claustrophobic as there are so many areas to explore. The best thnig was the warmth... More

My fiance and I got the master bedroom (of Aloe Villa) which had an amazing view! It came with a king size bed with mosquito net which we found out later to be very useful. Most of the windows came with mosquito netting except for the two windows overlooking the sea. The windows which overlooked the sea could not be... More

Antigua is a beautiful and peaceful place and to me Galley Bay Cottages is the only lodging facility that blends perfectly with the island's graciously laid-back spirit. The cottages are grouped along a quiet road, cleverly spaced along a gorgeous main path that provides extra charm and privacy to the place. Walk five minutes down the hill and you'll stand... More
