We just came back from our babymoon at Galley Bay. Here are the pros and cons:
-The beachfront suites are truly beachfront. You open up the balcony door and bam! There is the turquoise ocean and white sand.
-They try to make your stay special, if you're celebrating a special event e.g. babymoon. We got a vase of flowers and champagne.
-The service provided by those in a management level e.g. General Manager, Restaurant Manager, etc. was very good. They were very nice, personable, and try to get to know you.
-Daily turn down service is available
-The food variety could be better. Being an exotic island, i thought there would be more fresh fruit available but fresh fruit is only available at breakfast and even then its just cantaloupe and pineapple. On the way to the hotel, there were a ton of fruit stands selling mangos, so I was rather surprised that the resort didn't feature more local produce. Also, don't expect any freshly squeezed juices here - that was another disappointment so i hope you like Minute Maid.
-One of their primary restaurants called Gaugin was closed the entire weekend so you only have 1 choice for lunch and dinner. That was a bummer.
-The menus are printed daily but had errors e.g. lobster was supposed to be available but it actually wasn't.
-The quality of customer service by the staff on the ground i.e. those not in a management position left a lot to be desired. Some acted like they didn't want to be bothered, some were rude, etc. They could use more consistent customer service training.
-Also, everyday housekeeping came by our room around 8:30am - dude, we're on vacation!!
