To save you the trouble, I trolled them to see. Here they are in no particular order with some random comments No bar service on the...

My wife and I stayed in a beach front room, open the curtains in the morning and there is the beach and stunning looking sea! from 29th March 2017 for 9 nights. The place is a wonderful, secluded, luxurious location. Food at all three main restaurants varied and always really good. Hotel team and service excellent (and genuine). Atmosphere is...

This is the perfect Resort for a quiet, peaceful and relaxing vacation. There is however still plenty to do if you want to get out and about. The apartment rooms were spacious and comfortable with balcony views of the beach and sea. While the entrance on the otherside overlooked well tended gardens. Restaurants were superb, with a good selection and...

If you want a pretentious, stuffy or ultra-glam resort with poolside waiters and room service, this is not for you. However, if your idea of heaven is relaxing in a naturally stunning, peaceful location with friendly local staff and fresh food, you won't find anywhere better. There's plenty to do if you want to, but there's definitely something to be...

From accommodations to staff to food, this resort offers the best travel experience in the Caribbean. The staff is warm, friendly and eager to please. The food is a culinary delight with exquisite dishes that are the equal of the finest restaurants anywhere. The accommodations are spacious, luxurious and offer breathtaking ocean views with a high degree of privacy.

Returned to Galley Bay after Honeymooning there 33 years ago! There is a large and friendly staff catering to the guests, and everything works very well. The spa treatment we had was incredible. Our room on the beach was really great and very well maintained. We were treated like family and we will return.

We spent an all-inclusive week at Galley Bay in January and couldn’t have been more pleased. The staff members were warm, helpful and delightful. The waterfront room was perfect—even with the door closed we could hear the crashing waves—a heavenly way to fall asleep. It’s a very romantic place. The food was healthy, fresh and creative. We loved that the...
