As always a friendly accommodating staff. Accommodations clean comfortable and with easy access to beach. Grounds well groomed and constantly cared for. No children allowed at this time of year so resort was definitely adult friendly.

We spent 7 days the first week in December. It is small and does not allow kids under 16. Weather was fantastic, and any rain was over quickly. Food was very good, especially local fish, in all 3 restaurants, service superb, with a friendly and cooperative staff. Water was a little rough for beginner paddleboarding, but overall the beach was... More

The only thing is that men are required to dress in a collar shirt, pants, & toe covered shoes for dinner at all of the restaurants. Unfortunately we weren't aware of that. That should be highlighted somewhere. We had to purchase unneeded clothing & my husband had to wear his althetic shoes because the gift shop did not have his... More

We spent our honeymoon at this beautiful hotel for four nights and the we were treated as royalties. The food was amazing and the room to die for. One of our reasons for choosing this hotel was because of the Watersports and even if we had a red flag day Mark at the Watersports took very good care of us,... More

Another visit to Galley Bay and not disappointed. It just seems to improve all the time - food and service were even better than before. The staff are simply fantastic, nothing is too much trouble, and the management are very visible and always keen to hear your views. We had a beach bungalow this time and it was perfect for... More

Stunning location, and a stunning resort. Love this place. I was there this summer for my honeymoon. The rooms are very clean, the staff is very nice and the location is prefect. I highly recommend this location, and can't wait til my next get away there.

From the moment you arrive at Galley Bay you feel at home. With a welcome drink on arrival while you check in you get a good view of the beautiful gardens this hotel is surrounded by. With three restaurants that serve a great variety of top quality fare, friendly staff and very comfortable rooms you couldn't wish for more! Definitely... More

We have just returned from our fourth holiday at The Galley Bay resort in Antigua. This resort seems to get better every year, but without detracting from its natural, beautiful surroundings. The subtle changes are hardly noticeable, but enhance the quality of what must be one of the finest Caribbean resorts. Rustic, is probably the best words to describe it.... More

Random thoughts: 1. Beautiful, peaceful atmosphere - everything you probably want from a Caribbean vacation 2. Food is fantastic and menu is varied and almost universally delicious. Portion sizing is generous, the wine and drinks are plentiful, and the service is friendly. 3. Beach is beautiful and there is a ship wreck a very short distance from one end of... More

I will divide my comments into 3 sections: General observations, Pros, and Cons. On its own 3/4 mile beach in the western part of Antigua, Galley Bay has one and two story buildings with a Polynesian look. The surf can be rough in January: red flags out (no swimming or boating) half of the days. Plenty of beach toys (Hobie... More
