If you are looking for a nice, romantic place to honeymoon this is the spot. The resort differs from my previous experiences at all-inclusive resorts. The nightly entertainment was a lovely singer and steel drum band, very romantic and relaxing. If you are looking for an alcohol-fueled party resort, then this is not the resort for you. However, if you are looking for peace and quiet, DELICIOUS food and a romantic getaway, Galley's Bay is perfect!
We stayed in the Premium Beachfront Suites. I would STRONGLY recommend requesting a bottom floor room. We were RIGHT on the beach, and were able to walk out on the beach at our leisure. This prime spot MADE our trip. It was so lovely to wake up and look out from our bed and see the beautiful ocean--truly amazing.
Our stay was so quiet and leisurely. We viewed a Sandals during a pick up on an excursion we went on, and it looked so BUSY. With under 100 rooms, the bar was NEVER busy, and neither was the beach or pool.
My only suggestions would be to have music continued on through the day for a more vacation feel. As well, we would have loved to be able to enjoy drinks in our room, perhaps restocking the fridge daily with beer/spirits would be another suggestion (or even bottled water).
We had SUCH a lovely stay and plan to go back soon. Definitely a MUST for couples.
My only issue was not the fault of the resort, but a man approached us from the beach while we sat on the deck one morning and tried selling us Aloe Vera for $20, despite us advising him multiple times we were not interested. Pretty much a scam, he we insistent and persistent that we stand up so he could demonstrate how effective natural aloe is (which eventually we obliged because he was SO persistent), rubbed us down with aloe, and then demanded we give him $20. Guy was super persistent, wouldn't take no for an answer. All the beach vendors were very persistent, and we were approached almost every day while we were napping on the beach or relaxing on our back patio. Kind of annoying when the whole appeal for this particular resort and beachfront room is for quiet.
