Just returned from a week of R & R to get prepared for the Christmas madness! This is the first time we have been to the Caribbean and our agent recommended this resort. We were willing to go anywhere but thought we would give this a try. For the most part, we enjoyed it very much. Just a few things... More

Absolutely loved this smaller boutique resort - a true gem! I tend to like smaller resorts and this one was just perfect for my husband and me. I generally wouldn't ever consider going back to the same resort because there are so many places to visit in the world, but I could see myself going back there! We booked through... More

I should start by saying that after reading so many stunning reviews here our expectations were probably unrealistically high. Expecting to find something between Fantasy Island and Narnia which of course it could never be. On arrival by private transfer we were the only couple at reception, eventually after a short wait someone came out and we felt like we... More

It was truly the most relaxing awesome vacation that I have ever taken. The resort is definitely for those looking for a... More

We've just returned from a 7 night stay at Galley Bay which was our second visit having been there in 2009. There are a few things that need improving slightly and I will start with breakfast.There is a need for an egg chef and a more expansive buffet which could be situated in a better place as people waiting to...

Just got back today from a two week stay here with my husband. We had previously stayed at the Rendezvous in St Lucia which was amazing and as this was more expensive we expected this to be the same however the attitude of some members of staff spoiled our holiday. Don't get me wrong, there were some lovely members of... More

2nd time here. Just as good. This time we saw turtles hatch. Last time I had the privilege of watching one lay her eggs. What can I say about the staff. A special mention to Heather(at Ismays) and Kerry (thank you so much for getting us up to dance). Will be back.
