Returned to Galley Bay after Honeymooning there 33 years ago! There is a large and friendly staff catering to the guests, and everything works very well. The spa treatment we had was incredible. Our room on the beach was really great and very well maintained. We were treated like family and we will return.

Visited Galley Bay for the second time in 10 months, we had a wonderful time last year so decided to return to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary. Was it as good second time around? Our return reinforced our view that it is one of the the most relaxed and enjoyable places we have visited. What makes it so good? The...

We spent an all-inclusive week at Galley Bay in January and couldn’t have been more pleased. The staff members were warm, helpful and delightful. The waterfront room was perfect—even with the door closed we could hear the crashing waves—a heavenly way to fall asleep. It’s a very romantic place. The food was healthy, fresh and creative. We loved that the...

This was our second visit in 5 months. Galley Bay Resort gives us exactly the sort of relaxing tropical holiday we require. Although the beach is wonderful, the hotel comfortable, and the food exquisite, it is the staff that really make this place special, and why guests keep coming back year after year. There is a unique mutual respect between...

We were very torn between staying here or returning to The Body Holiday resort in St Lucia. I'll do a bit of a comparison between the two to help any one who may also be in a dilemma on which resort to go for. The Galley Bay overall was very good, the staff are great (some friendlier than others), the...

Had a fantastic week - the food was absolutely delicious. Our room was lovely and so near the sea. Every morning could not believe the view from the balcony of the beach and beautiful sea. It is peaceful and a stunning location. The staff are amazing particularly the water sports team. The landscaping is beautiful. It was paradise. I hope...

We were looking for a place to relax for 4 days. A place where we could open our door and walk out to the ocean, where our meals and drinks were always ready whenever we were, where all we needed to worry about was getting back to the airport for our flight home. That is exactly what we got. From...

My wife and I have gone to Galley Bay twice. Once in September of 2011 and another time we brought my in-laws in November of 2015 for Thanksgiving. The rooms are great, I prefer the Beachfront Deluxe and prefer the bottom level. You just step right off your patio onto the beach which is beautiful. The food is perfect, it's...
