I have just returned from the Galey Bay Resort today 13th May so I am slightly perplexed at two recent reviews that appear to be written at the same time that we were there.
Sorry people but the weather is outwith the control of the management - live with it.
To call this resort a "Caribbean Benidorm" is extremely unfair. I have been in many very good All Inclusive Couples Only Resorts and this resort is up there with the best of them.
I did have a small issue with not being able to lock my safe at the start of my vacation and reported the issue on the first day, by the mid morning of the second day after anoither vphone call my safe was still not lockable so I then spoke directly to the Resident Manager "Gregory" who could not have been more apologetic, after my call the safe was repaired and working within 30 minutes.
I must also challenge the statement "lot of Scots propping up the bar shouting the odds" when I was there I never witnessed any of this such behaviour and although I am Scottish I did not prop up the bar as my wife is a smoker and smoking is not allowed at the bar so we sat at tables every night. I may suggest if you want peace, tranquility and romance then perhaps buy a tent and go and sit on top of a hill.
The food is of a very good quality in the Seagrape and there are many different choices on the menu and the Caribbean BBQ on the Thursday night was excellent.
We used the Barefoot Cafe every lunch time and there is a good choice of snacks that you can order
Many cocktails are available as part of the AI package and all spirits are well known brands.
As in many other reports we could not praise the staff highly enough, every body is willing to spend time talking and getting to know the guests.
We spent most of our time round the pool area and never had any problems getting sunbeds and the area is immaculate. The Pool is a Green /Grey Colour to make sure it fits in with the surroundings, it would look rather silly if a white or blue water coloured pool was sitting in the middle of this lovely setting
If I had one slight moan it would be the quality of the Beach Sunbeds, which are extremely uncomfortable if spending a lot of time on them, suggest going for a better design.
Would I return to this resort, most certainly.
