We have been holidaying in Antigua for a number of years and have stayed in the majority of the quality hotels on the island. This is the second time we have stayed at the Galley Bay and we were not disappointed. Chris Ghita the general manager and his team are committed towards offering their guests a memorable experience.We could not...

We had such a great time at the Galley Bay! The food was delicious and diverse. The catch of the day at the Barefoot Grill may have been our favorite lunch spot most days but we did make sure to sample all of the restaurants on the resort. We spent nearly all of our time on the resort and we...

This is our third all inclusive holiday and 2nd in the Caribbean. It was far and away the best. We chose it partly because of the TA reviews, so will try and give some value back as to what it might be useful to know in advance. We absolutely loved it, so any points made are observations rather than criticisms....

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Galley Bay the week of April 14. We renewed our vows on the beach and John was wonderful! It was very simple and exactly what we pictured. Ernestine was wonderful in accommodating our officiate for the night. We stayed in beach front room #9...it was just perfect for us! We had chairs outside...

Let me start off by saying... we are in our 30's. So, yes, we were definitely the minority as far as the age range goes. A few couples even commented "But you're so young"... haha. With that said, we both really enjoyed this vacation. It is not a huge resort, it is not the fanciest... but what it "lacks" (if...

We have just come back from a lovely week at the Galley Bay. We stayed in a premier beachfront villa, ground floor no 17. It was lovely to step off our terrace onto the sand and then a few meters to the sea. The 2 other categories of beachfront rooms ( superior and delux ) are actually closer to the...

This was our second visit to Galley Bay, which we visited last year but this year, we took our children and their partners all of whom are adults. This resort is extremely relaxing and offers a great holiday, lovely food and beautiful surroundings and 95% of the staff are happy smiley people. This year a new manager Chris had joined...

We stayed at the Galley Bay resort from April 17 to April 24 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. We had a deluxe beachfront room on the second floor which had amazing sunset and beach views. We loved how close our room was to the beach and all of the facilities. It is very relaxing and secluded. Most of the...

Our week at Galley Bay is sadly coming to an end. What a great resort! Great location on Antigua, tremendous service and terrific food. Adults only makes this a great get away for newlyweds or couples and small groups that enjoy being in an intimate setting. Well worth it!

Our recent stay at Galley bay was our 9th and although we had not visited for 5 years we were greeted as if we had only been away for a few weeks. From the moment you enter the property until the inevitable departure you are treated with the utmost courtesy and respect. The improvements to the resort are welcomed and...
