A very small resort, maybe 200 guests at the most, where attention to your stay is the staff's priority. From the moment you arrive to the time you leave you will feel a VIP. The meals are exceptional, the rooms quite comfortable, and the beach prestine. The staff was very attentive to a guest who had difficulty walking, escorting the,... More

They had personality, smiles and genuine conversation. Reception gave very warm welcome Maintainance and guest relations excellent solved problems really quickly. Food slightly average several time had to wait... More

My husband and I have been to Galley Bay several times, and it never disappoints. We always stay in superior beachfront cottages...great for two. Food is excellent at the Sea Grape but don't miss a dinner or two at Gaugin's...so lovely. Staff could not be more accomodating...setting could not be more beautiful. Beach is one of the best, though high... More

There are many big pluses going for this lovely hotel. No 1 is the beach- long enough that each guest has their very almost private bit but it still feels intimate. No 2 the food best ever had in an all inclusive resort. No 3 the staff - so pleasant and attentive. Not something you often find in the Caribbean... More

Beautiful location on the island, some of the friendliest and attentive staff anywhere, and the perfect blend of seclusion, amenities, and quiet for a relaxing vacation. Highly recommend and will surely be back!

We spent 10 days in a fantastic hotel, staff were very accommodating, beautiful beach and sea. Food excellent. couldn't want more from a relaxing... More

Just returned from Galley Bay resort, had a wonderful vacation, The superior rooms(cottages) are right on the beach. The experience of this just alone is all worth it. The resort is perfect, food, accommodations, staff and services are all very good. The best of all is the amazing beach and Crystal clear pristine water. Great resort if you are looking... More

We’ve just returned from Galley Bay, which stands out as one of our very best “self-indulgent” vacations. We went to relax and pamper ourselves in a beautiful and enticing place, and Galley Bay excelled! When we travel, we generally plan for excursions to hiking, historic sites, museums, galleries, and concerts. This trip, we decided to focus on immersing ourselves in... More

Just returned from Antigua having chosen to stay at the Galley Bay resort. A few pros and cons to point out... Pros - al inclusive food options not repetitive - beautiful beach - plentiful food and snacks available with gluten free options - live music every night ( but did lack atmosphere in the evenings - could be because we...

On Galley Bay what a conundrum you are! So many mixed feelings about this hotel. Location - is good, beach is lovely but many rocks in the water. Sea can be rough beach shelves steeply in places not great for those who find getting in an out difficult. Grounds- Galley bay claims Eco credentials and maybe because of this the... More
