The resort description here on Tripadvisor accurately describes what to expect. Galley Bay is how to run an upscale resort. You are treated as a VIP from the moment you arrive. The hotel want you to feel 'part of the family". Staff remember your name and your preferences. Whatever you need, if they can supply it or do it, they will. Rooms are stylish with free wifi, and you face directly onto the beach. Booked for 3 days initially and ended up extending 3 times. (Lots of repeat guests, and lots of guests extending, like us). If you want party central or an action packed holiday, this is not the place. It's a place to relax, and be indulged. But enough to keep you busy and active if you want that. Water sport options are adequate for a 100 room resort, but the (beautiful) beach is open to the sea, and choppy waters can mean the red flag is flying most days. A memorable holiday and a resort I will definitely return to.

This was my fourth stay at Galley Bay and I must write how impressed I was with their COVID measures. Everywhere you went, hand sanitizing stations were available, the staff (with the exception of one bartender at Gauguin one evening, which management corrected immediately) wore PPE. The diligent staff made sure you used the hand sanitizer before entering a common space, kept the dining and bar areas spotless and germ free. They maintained social distancing in restaurants at all times. On the whole, guests complied with wearing face masks, but, as always, there were a few outliers. The resort has maintained their superior level of service; all staff were professional and friendly; they really can't do enough for you. Housekeeping was again superior. All restaurants were open, and the service and food were absolutely fantastic. Can't wait to go back.

We just returned from a glorious week at Galley Bay. While all beaches in Antigua are public, the 3/4 mile beach at Galley Bay is virtually reserved for hotel guests. With all that beach there is so much room to spread out whether you want sun or shade. 80% of the rooms are right on the beach, so you are right on the beach in the comfort of your own room deck or patio. While the beach is an incredible asset, the staff and the all inclusive food and drinks are in the same league. The restaurants changed the menu daily. One of the reasons the food is so outstanding is that so much of the greens, fruits and veggies are grown right on the property. The staff and other guests take COVID precautions seriously, so we felt totally safe during our week at Galley Bay. Already looking forward to a return visit. Hope to see you there!

I’ve been lucky enough to travel and stay in some fantastic hotels around the world but nothing compares to Galley Bay I think it has to be one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in. The property is situated on one of the most beautiful and breathtaking beach’s in the Caribbean. I was lucky enough to experience turtle hatchlings make their journey from the nest to the ocean. The local Turtle Conservationist Aston, educated me and got me involved releasing them an experience I will never forget. I definitely want to come back when the nesting season starts which is any time between March to November, many turtles return year after year to lay their eggs at Galley Bay. The hotel exceeded my expectations from the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms to the friendly and helpful staff. The restaurants are all located beach front, very romantic settings and the food was exceptional plus the entertainment was superb. I think I’ve found my perfect paradise hotel and would highly recommend Galley Bay.
