I've just return from a 6 day visit. This was my second visit in the last 8 months and my 12 visit overall. To start this is a great property from an location and accommodation standpoint. Beach is fantastic. My feelings on dining and service are not signicantly different that my experience last December. The menu (lunch & dinner) and presentation is underwhelming. I discussed this with a member of management who shared that the offering are very UK centric and they recognized that they need to appeal to a broader audience. My second observation is on service. There are a select few on staff that go out of their way to create a great experience (Keriann, Alfred, Natasha, Sandy C to name a few). Many others give you the ipression that they don't want to be there or you're a burden for asking. This very different from my experiences over the many years I have been going to to Galley Bay. I also want to give a shout out to Captain Sean. Great saling experience.

Galley Bay is our favorite place to stay in the Caribbean after trying many others. What sets Galley Bay apart from others is the customer service from check in to waiters/waitresses to housekeeping to even the grounds keepers. Everyone is friendly and helpful in any way possible. They go above and beyond to try to make everyone feel special at the resort. We have been 3 times so far and look forward to going again and again!

We have always stayed at Sandals all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean but decided for a change to try Galley Bay adults only all inclusive with our best friends. When we arrived we were greeted with a smile, a bottle of water and asked to wait in the outdoor covered reception area. We were asked to wear masks and sanitise our hands. We were booked in quickly and efficiently and taken by golf buggy to our room. From the minute we opened the door we knew it would be amazing with really good air conditioning. The rooms are huge (we booked a suite) with massive bathroom housing bath, 2 showers and 2 sinks. Huge queen size bed, living area and finally the beautiful balcony overlooking the sea. As far as I’m aware all rooms overlook the sea. There are 3 restaurants - Sea Grape (no booking needed), Gauguin - book and Ismay’s which has an additional charge of $40 per head. There is also a snack bare called Barefoots. We ate in all the restaurants with the exception of Ismay’s as it was fully booked. Please note if you book this you have to have long trousers. We spent our whole time on the beautiful beach, using the hobi cat a few times. The hotel has a small pool which we chose not to use as the beach was fabulous. Lots of clean beach towels available and each room has 2 sun beds allocated to them. The fridge was stocked with waters, cokes, sprite, beers and wine as part of the all inclusive package. The hotel is very chilled and not lots of organised events going on but this may be due to Covid. All restaurants have a mask wearing policy until you sit down and staff ask you to sanitise before entering. We have a certain expectation with all inclusive but Galley Bay exceeded this with every meal. The food was amazing and catered for meat eaters, veggies & vegans alike with a very creative menu. We met the head chef Jeremiah who has worked at the resort for 24 years. He was so lovely and certainly had a passion for good food. Evening entertainment was brilliant with a band every night finishing at 10pm. At the present time there is an 11pm curfew in Antigua but that suited us as we are early risers. All in all this has been one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff are so lovely and friendly and good fun with a less corporate and a more family feel to it.

Antigua offers the friendliest peoples. The island has little to offer outside of water sports but is perfect for relaxation. The resort staff can’t do enough for everyone and they do so with a joyful attitude. The accommodations are wonderful and you can as much or as little as you wish. The food and drinks are well presented anf again can be customized in every regard. We never heard a NO. Every request was fulfilled with a smile. The entertainment every evening was all local engaging and enjoyable talent If your looking for a relaxing and carefree vacation GALLEY BAY is the go to
