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. Thanks to all of you at that piece of pa... Read more

This was the most amazing resort I have ever been to. The beach is settled between two cliffs so you are free from the the scammers and hustlers that you would get at other resorts. The food is great and the people are friendly. You will not regret going to this place

i can not say enough about this resort. the staff was professional and attentive. The rooms were clean and very nice. The beach was b e a u t i f u l !!!! the plants and flowers all over the resort were lush and vibrant. This is a place for fine food, and relaxation. If you are looking a wild place to party on the beach, this is not it. this is an adult vacation location for fun, beauty, fine food and relaxation

This was our third visit three years in a row and it will not be our last, just when I thought it couldn't get any better it does, we stay in the same room every year # 41. We are welcomed home right away when we get there with a nice rum punch and cold towel check in is quick and easy, and I really do feel like we just came home. The room is beautiful as always and so well taken care of during our stay by Roseann she is so sweet and always smiling. Was good to see all of the staff that we have ... Read more

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

Really wanted to rate them 4.5 but TA doesn't let you so I'm giving them a 5 for all those TA reviewers who THINK they are professional critics. Is this the best resort I have ever been to? No, but EXCELLENT. Is this the best beach I have ever been to? No, but EXCELLENT. Is this the best food I have eaten? No but EXCELLENT. Is this the best... OK you get the point. People write that there is something special about this resort and they are right. I feel it is the resort's no tipping policy that ... 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. The all-inclusive wasn't so all-inclusive, unless you consider getting your water bottle refilled inclusive. Yo... Read more

Our second trip to Antigua and Galley Bay. This time for our wedding. Consualla and the rest of the staff made it extra special. Room was ocean front and beach was beautiful. Spa package and bridal couples special kept us relaxed and refreshed. Wedding at beach in front of Ishmay's was intimate and beautiful. Gazebo wedding dinner with our guests was perfect! St. John's shopping and dinner at Hemmingway's added some local culture. Sunsets were among the most beautiful I have seen and our sunset ... Read more

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

An exceptional all inclusive resort that provides a welcoming, friendly atmosphere. The staff is attentive and friendly, the food is wonderful and the beverage selection outstanding. This was our first visit to Galley Bay but will not be our last. We enjoyed every aspect of our vacation.

Where do you even begin with this amazing resort...First of all my wife and I travel a lot and have stayed at some very nice resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean but never have we been to a place where EVERYBODY was beyond courteous and friendly and relaxation was the goal for everybody! First off and most importantly the staff is what makes Galley Bay rank first in our book! From the upper level management to the maids and garden workers... Everybody greets you with a smile!

The moment we arrived we felt like we were in paradise. From the welcome drink through to the continuous attentive care where nothing is too much trouble- 'no problem' was an expression we heard repeatedly. We stayed in the superior single level beachfront rooms which have the true 'WOW' factor for views of the beach and sea which is literally yards away-breathtaking. 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

My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon. We split our honeymoon between St. Lucia and Antigua with Galley Bay being the second part of our trip. The Good: Views from the rooms are amazing. With the exception of the cottages, all other rooms sit right on the beach. If you have a lower level room you walk right out your door onto the beach. Rooms were decent size and bathrooms were nice. Menus for dinner changed every night so you were always trying some new food which was good but... Read more
