We have just returned from 2 weeks in Galley Bay. We went with friends, on a recommendation from others who had been there. It is almost impossible to find any fault with the place. The accommodation was excellent - we had a premier beachfront suite, which is right on the beach. Wonderful to wake up to the sound of waves... More

My wife and I have had three vacations at Galley Bay over the years. We have never been disappointed no matter what accomadation we stayed in. Last October we stayed at another Antiguan resort, very elitist, very posh and very expensive. I have to say, in my opinion, that Galley Bay is head and shoulders above most resorts in Antigua....

We spent a most enjoyable fortnight at Galley Bay. The room and bed were extremely comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food and selection of drinks excellent, and for the more adventurous there were various water sports to enjoy. Overall the best holiday for a long time.

From the moment of our arrival we felt very welcomed. Our room was very nice and the view was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The managers are very visible and accommodating.The grounds are kept up nicely. We especially appreciated the jogging path and the use of the bicycles. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. There was music... More

This was our second visit to Galley Bay in as many years, so obviously we like the resort. We chose Galley Bay because it's not enormous and it's adults only. Even though it was full, you never felt like it was. We stayed in a premium beachfront room and it was great to step out of the room onto a... More

We stayed here in October 2013 for 10 days - my title reflects the live band that turned the Hotel California song by the Eagles into "Welcome to the Hotel Galley Bay Now" with a Caribbean twist! It's stuck with me ever since and makes me smile when I hear the original! Anyway, lots to say on this hotel -... More

We have been to Galley Bay for 3 years now, and a lot has changed. Chris has managed to ruin the BBQ by putting it at the beach at Gauguin. It suited more people at the Seagrape, and could fit more people in sitting at nice tables off the sand and not being bitten by bugs. Needless to say, a... More

On the positive side: we arrived completely exhausted and stressed to the eyeballs after a difficult year in business and were in need of total relaxation; we had a fabulous Gauguin Cottage with totally enclosed plunge pool giving us complete privacy; a really comfortable king-size bed which is the first time in any holiday I can recall that we have...

We had a fabulous time at this hotel in mid Feb 2014 and would stay here again if we are lucky enough to come back. The food is of excellent quality and very inventive. My husband and our friends enjoyed the fresh fish choices offered each day and as a vegetarian I was delighted with the varied menus available for... More

We visited Galley Bay at the end of October 2013. We stayed in the upper unit of one the premium beachfront suites. The room itself was fantastic. It had a very comfortable king size bed with both a ceiling fan and an AC unit. During our first night the AC unit broke but fortunately there was a nice ocean breeze... More
