We stayed at Galley Bay for 4 days in January 2016. Our experience there was great. We had stayed at Coco Bay Resort for a few days before and wanted to experience something different from the all inclusive experience Antigua has to offer as our entire trip was over 2 weeks. Marco came and collected us from our resort and... More

Impossible to catalogue all the things wrong with this place. 4 people issued 3 bath towels and 2 beach towels. No pillow cases on some of the pillows. Necessary floor fan roars like a 747 taking off nearby. NOTHING worked - garbage and kettle lids didn't close, toaster had to be held down. Espresso maker wouldn't make coffee. Tripping hazard...

Dear Guest First of all thank you for the review even though it is a negative one. I am taking your complaint seriously and I would like to address each issues you brought up. Galley Bay Cottages were built respecting the original Caribbean style and the natural landscape. Therefore some of the cottages have a view of the local natural... More

FAR AWAY from everyhing, not so nice area. Why go all the way to Antigua and not be anywhere near... More

What an amazing location, with a view to match. So peaceful and picturesque. We loved having our breakfast so close to such beauty and our dinners looking out at the sunset. Easy walk down to the beach, one of the best on the island. Huge thanks to Marco. What a gentleman.

Visited earlier this month and we stayed at the Spice Cottage. Beautiful cottage with lovely partial views to the ocean! The cottages are easily accessible (with a car) but away from everything making it a very quiet and peaceful stay. Marco was incredibly helpful and was even nice enough to pick us up from the airport (super appreciated!!). The beach... More

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
