We went to Galley Bay for a week to celebrate our anniversary. It was one of the few resorts we would return to again in a heartbeat. We stayed in a Beachfront Suite and the view from our room and balcony was spectacular - only a few feet from the ocean. The food was exquisite - the fact that it... More

This resort was very small - only 3 restaurants for dinner - one you had to pay which I found odd for an all inclusive, so basically you had 2 choices for all meals which gets old fast. I didn't find the natives there to be particularly friendly. There was no entertainment, and no music by the pool - very... More

I love this place my wife and I were only able to spend 5 days there but it was enough for us to say we're are going back. Staff very friendly, food good, location awesome. Resort has a lot to offer never a dull moment, and the rum punch at arrival is the perfect start.

My husband and I loved every moment spent at Galley Bay. The staff are all nice and friendly with excellent service. They made our 10 year anniversary very special. We loved the hike. My favorite part was that our room was over looking the ocean and we had full beach access. If you want to escape and relax to island... More

We just returned from an amazing trip to Galley Bay. The beach and the water were AMAZING! This trip was exactly what we were looking for and more. It was very quiet (but not too quiet) and we liked that about it. Galley Bay definitely hit the mark for a relaxing vacation. Pros: The beach was the best feature for... More

After a seven year gap we returned to a very different Galley Bay. Still here are many of the same staff mostly still smiley and motivated. Some really good changes like the addition of the Bare Foot Grill which offers surprising good quality snack lunches (if you don’t want to have a more formal midday meal), and the sun lounger...

We came here on recommendation for a relaxing week. It was superb with large spacious room and balcony on the beautiful beach. Fall asleep listening to the waves and the singing frogs. All inclusive food of excellent quality and served to the table .Captain Sean has a fabulous 35 foot sail boat moored most days off the beach and will... More

I have to admit to being a serial visitor as our visit in June was our sixth in ten years. Each time we have returned the location completely wows me with the beach and the direct access from the rooms. We have usually been on an upper storey so this time direct access to the beach was provided by a... More

This is a difficult one to review. I have been fortunate to have visited many islands in the Caribbean, so my standards are very high. The location is superb, one of the best beaches visited. Private, secluded, no cries of beach volley ball or vendors trying to sell you stuff, that when you got home, thought was a good idea!... More

My husband & I stayed in a premium beach suite (#74) for 6 nights in early July. We had an upper level suite and definitely liked the view and privacy. Unless you want to walk out directly on to the sand, I would recommend requesting an upper level. You can see directly into the lower rooms so you would have... More
