We stayed here for two weeks. The best thing about this resort is it's very quiet. No loud music playing or kids screaming. The resort is only 20 mins from the airport but no free transfer to and from the airport. We stayed in the premium beachfront suites on the first floor. The room is large, the bed was comfortable....

This hotel has a beautiful setting, good food and our room was very clean, spacious and well kept (however other guests described their room as poor standard), what a shame therefore that many of the staff have a very poor attitude and only seemed to smile if a very large dollar tip was placed their way! The staff were sadly... More

We have just returned from our fifth visit to Galley Bay on Antigua. From the moment you arrive, you quickly move through customs and walk outside to a waiting cab. The ride to the resort is only 20 to 25 minutes. Once at the resort, your life changes completely. First of all, the employees at Galley Bay are so pleasant... More

My husband and I had an excellent experience at Galley Bay. My only complaint is that we didn't get to stay longer. Everyone was so polite and the staff went out of their way to ensure we were getting the most of our stay. This place is a must for those looking for peace and quiet.

My husband and I stayed at Galley Bay from April 6 – April 13. This was our 4th visit over 10 years. We like this resort because it is a small, peaceful, beach-front, adults-only resort. We always stay in the beach front bungalows, as we love the simplicity. As long as Galley Bay maintains all of these elements, we will... More

Were at the resort from April 6th, to the 13th for a week. First I'll start with the positive points: Beach is wonderful, water is unbelievable, but the sea is not for non swimmers like me :o( too deep in a few meters, but the color of the sea is wonderful and i enjoy that.
