We recently visited Galley Bay with one other couple for an adults-only vacation. As soon as you step foot on the property, you feel like royalty and that you've entered paradise. The staff is incredibly nice, as is everyone on the island really. We especially appreciated Iba and all of his advice. Our room (deluxe beachfront) was extremely clean and... More

Galley Bay is the best vacation resort in Antigua. It is right on a magnificent beach and has an amazing and excellent staff .The food is absolutely delicious. Accommodations are always excellent. The bar staff is always there to bring you your favorite cocktail. We have been to Galley Bay several times and highly recommended it.

Galley Bay did not disappoint on our first trip to this beautiful island!! Resort is located just a short 20 min. cab ride from the airport. We were greeted with welcoming smiles and refreshing drinks. Check-in was quick, simple, and seamless! To our surprise we also received a complimentary room upgrade. This was truly the beginning of a fabulous vacation... More

My husband and I have just returned from Galley Bay. We have enjoyed 25+ years visiting this property. The love we have for the staff cannot be described! They are not only warm and sincere but true professionals and more like family. Alex, Cedric, Michael, Jullian, Nola and Pam keep Galley Bay running like a well oiled machine and it... More

This is our second trip to Galley Bay and it's even better. It's very quiet and tranquil, with over 100 rooms and being 86% occupied you never got the feeling of being crowded. We had a beachfront view which was breathtaking. The food was good and the staff very accomodating. We can't wait to return. My only complaint was the... More

My wife and I spent a peaceful 2 weeks at Galley Bay which is the perfect antidote to the rigors of modern life. Never crowded round the pool or on the beach, plenty of food and wine choices and mainly smiling staff all combined to make for a memorable experience. The evening entertainment is 'understated' rather than 'in your face',... More

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.
