Great place for a honeymoon. Stayed in a renovated gaugin cottage which was beautiful and perfect. Only downfall was food, not a lot of fresh seafood options. Make reservations first thing in the morning for dinner at Gaugin

After visiting many of the Caribbean islands in recent years, we were completely taken by surprise by the Galley Bay as it unlike any other hotel in that area. Child free was a big want from us and an atmosphere that would totally chill me out. Ticks in both boxes. The pace is set by you. No hassle. Genuine fantastic staff, and food that would not look out of place at a top London restaurant. We will return next year with an eye on getting married there.

We returned to Galley Bay last month ( May 2016) for a weeks' holiday. We had previously come to Galley Bay in Jluy 2012 and enjoyed it so much we vowed to return. We arrived to find that the room we requested at the northern area of the resort had not been honoured. We were shown to a room which was at the southerly end but seemed nice and was a Premium Beachfront room as we had booked. It was a bit tired-looking with some broken tiles on the floor but we could overlook this. They obviously h... Read more

We stayed a Galley Bay May 7 thru May 13 2016. It was very quirt resort and with a beautiful white crescent beach. This is where we spent the vast majority of our time and enjoyed this aspect very much. For us that was about it. The food was mediocre at best. I do have to say that most of the people we talked to at the resort loved the food, I guess we have different expectations.

After a hectic and stressful day of travel, we arrived in paradise. We were greeted with cold towels (very welcome, after a humid drive in from the airport) and rum punch. Things just got better from there! We stayed in a premium beachfront suite at the Ismay's end of the beach--very peaceful and quiet, just ten steps from our patio to the beach. This does mean a longer walk to restaurants and the pool, but it's worth the walk to have peace and quiet when you're relaxing. This is not a resort f... Read more

From the welcome drink through to the continuous attentive care where nothing is too much trouble- 'no problem' was an expression we heard repeatedly.

The rooms are clean and traditionally furnished - huge bed and the bathroom has a large shower and hanging rails. Simple and cle... Read more

Starting with the the 3/4 mile beach--its beautiful. And most remarkably, at no time during our stay, regardless of time of day, or day of the week did we see more than 12 people on the entire strand. Water is crystal clear. Love love love not having to fight for a lounge chair, as there is always a pair right outside your room. Rooms are well appointed, and every one is steps away from the beach. Food is definitely a cut above the usual all-inclusive menus you'll find elsewhere. Sea Grape... Read more

I'm not an 'all-inclusive' kind of traveler. In fact, I cringed at the suggestion from a family member since I prefer sampling a variety of restaurants, scoping out the local scene, etc.. So I couldn't have been more astonished at how amazing Galley Bay Resort is. In retrospect, the cab ride from the airport and check-in should have been a clue - we encountered 2 couples that had stayed there 7 and 18 times. The staff, the food, the grounds - everything was phenomenal. The room (recommend 2nd fl... Read more

Our trip to Galley Bay this week was for our 25th wedding anniversary. That being said, we chose Galley Bay because on our honeymoon, we were on a Carribean cruise. One of the stops was Antigua, and we spent only the day on the Galley Bay beach. Loved it, so when we were investigating possible 25th anniversary destinations, we thought this might fit what we were looking for. All I can say is " Wow!"

Loved the rooms and the beaches. I wasn't incredibly impressed by the food, even at the one restaurant that you had to pay out of pocket for, and the crowd during our stay was a bit older than we would have liked but we still had a great time. The staff was really nice and the activities were great. We took a trip up to Shirley Heights one night and had the best time there.

This resort was very small - only 3 restaurants for dinner - one you had to pay which I found odd for an all inclusive, so basically you had 2 choices for all meals which gets old fast.

We recently visited Galley Bay with one other couple for an adults-only vacation. As soon as you step foot on the property, you feel like royalty and that you've entered paradise. The staff is incredibly nice, as is everyone on the island really. We especially appreciated Iba and all of his advice. Our room (deluxe beachfront) was extremely clean and turndown service each night is complimentary. The walk-in closet was key as I prefer keeping hotel rooms tidy. The bathroom doesn't have an...

This past June, my wife and I visited Galley Bay for our 2nd time. We returned because we had fond memories of our visit several years ago. We are delighted that we decided to return. We like Galley Bay because it has a distinctive Caribbean feel to it. So many of the all-inclusives in the Caribbean today are all chrome and glass and narrow beaches with lounges lined up on top of each other. Galley Bay is not like that at all. It's an adults only resort that is small enough to provide personaliz... Read more

First, the positives. Beautiful property, lots of flowers and birds. The view from our room was gorgeous. The staff, for the most part, were very friendly, grounds keeping was done with brooms, not the annoying drone of leaf blowers! Cons, the AC in the room was limited to 20 Celsius, or 68 Fahrenheit. This sounds fine, however, the unit was undersized for the room. The temp in most of the room was at least 75 for most of the day and around 80 in the bathroom. Dining was done in open air res...

We spent our 30th anniversary at Galley Bay with another couple who were also celebrating 33 years of marriage. We have been friends since before high school. Hands down best trip ever, the rooms, the location, the staff, the food, the amenities all first class. We WILL be returning and will miss it terribly till we can come again!!!!

Picture postcard....white sand, palm trees etc., Lots of tropical plants and birds, frogs chirping and croaking away. 3 restaurants & an informal grill. we were impressed by the quality of all the food, presentation was lovely and portion sizes were perfect (not to big).

This was an ultimate anniversary trip for me and my husband. The service was out of this world from the time we arrived at the resort getting a towel to cleanse our face with, and a rum punch to enjoy while we were checking in to the resort, to the impeccable and attentive service we received at all the restaurants throughout our stay! The private beach meal was fabulous, and well worth the cost! The eco tour was fantastic, will definitely go on more excursions our next stay. Only complaint is t... Read more

We went to Antigua to relax and boy oh boy did we succeed. We arrived to a home made cocktail and cold towel and smiles galore. This was the typical of the staff a kind word here, a helpful tip on the best place to snorkel, a recommendation on the menu or digging up one of the best 15 year old scotches I drank on the beach underneath the most star filled sky I have seen. The resort was fabulous make sure you stop by the Spa where the hour you spend will be worth the trip. If you are looking for ... Read more

What a fabulous holiday at Galley Bay! Our first time visiting, and certainly, not our last. The resort is beautiful. It is peaceful, clean, and picturesque. The staff are warm and friendly and very helpful. The restaurants, while sometimes a tad slow, offer delicious and varied meals in beautiful surroundings. Captain Sean's trips on his yacht "Beats Working" are an absolute must-do--a true sailing experience with great snorkeling, great food and drink. The Spa is also memorable - a qu... Read more

Pleasant Surprise!!! My husband surprised me with a stay at Galley Bay for our third anniversary. I wish everyday was my anniversay. There is a windmill near the reception area. We were welcomed with a cold towel and fruit punch. After check in we were taken to our room in a gold cart. The resort is all-inclusive, adult only, has 98 rooms and is situated on a beautiful beach, We stayed in a beachfront suite, the view from the balcony was incredible. Our room was quite large with a separa... Read more

We travelled to Galley Bay Resort in June where we married on the stunning beach. It seems that all that visit the resort are seduced by its beauty and tranquillity. An Adults only resort, it truly is a heavenly place and if its total escapism and peace that you desire this will not disappoint . The staff are all to be commended as they greet you each day as someone they have known for years. There will always be a few exceptions to the rule but the members of staff who shone far out wei...

How to begin a review for the fabulous Galley Bay Resort? Location - 100% Perfect the beach is very spacious and quiet, no children - adults only - no one is squashed in, often we have been in the sea by ourselves or with just a few other guests, the quiet atmosphere allows for holiday friendships or solitude as you prefer. Pressures of life are dissolved at Galley Bay - this resort is great for removing stress and improving health and well being. Don't open your emails they can wait! Staff - 10... Read more

I thought long and hard about a subject line which sums up our stay at Galley Bay in Dec 2015. This may be the one line mission statement used by the Ritz but it also perfectly describes our experience at this resort. A truly breathtaking resort with a fantastic level of customer service!

Just got back from two weeks in Galley Bay - our second visit to Antigua (we went with our then young children 12 years ago) and our first to this resort. We were looking for somewhere "special" to celebrate our 25th anniversary and we both felt that we found it here. It's luxurious, but not too smart (if that makes sense!), so it retains that lovely relaxed barefoot feel that you want on a Caribbean holiday. The location is amazing, on a beautiful arc of white sand with turquoise sea, gentle wa... Read more

We spent a week at this resort to celebrate an important anniversary. It is a wonderful place to relax and regenerate. We were in a deluxe beachfront suite. We chose the upper floor for privacy and the cathedral ceiling. The room was spacious and the views over the bay were spectacular. We were in the northern part of the property, closer to Ismay's. The location was quiet and we had no complaints with the housekeeping. The beach is one of the best we have experienced. In July the water w... Read more

Galley Bay Resort has an excellent location with a superb beach. Although beaches are public in the Caribbean, there is (apparently) no obvious access to this beach other than from the resort so there were no locals (or horses as we had last year in St Lucia). The sea was calm and clear and great for swimming. The general standard of the resort is high, with well-kept gardens and facilities. A walk around the lagoon was particularly pleasant with plenty of bird life. The food in Sea Grape and G... Read more

My best vacation ever! I went with a group of friends, so it wasn't a romantic experience, nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I had a beach front room, where I'd wake up to the sound of the ocean crashing against the shore. The water was absolutely beautiful and the shoreline walks provided a level of calmness that I had never experienced. My vacation started on August 1st, and I was fortunate to attend the last day of Carnival on Tuesday, which is a celebration of the emancipation of sl... Read more

My husband and I just got back from Galley Bay and had a really amazing time. There are several things to do on site and we utilised this to our benefit. The guys at the beach sports centre (despite a couple of the older guys being a bit grumpy) were really helpful, specifically naming Mark and Winstons - they were super happy and helpful chaps. We got a half hour lesson learning how to use the hobby cat which was awesome fun. You can't use them everyday though because there may be to much... Read more
