My husband and I just returned from a week long vacation at glorious Galley Bay Resort (April 6-13). Our stay was so wonderful and relaxing, we are already planning a return trip. The setting is lush and picturesque. The grounds of Galley Bay are nicely landscaped and well-maintained. Of course, the beach is a highlight. It is fluffy white sand... More

This was our first trip to Antigua and to Galley Bay Resort, and we will most definitely be back! We went to de-stress and unwind and were looking for a quiet low key place to just regroup from our hectic day to day back home. The people were friendly and welcoming, the resort was top notch and the other guests... More

This is my eleventh Caribbean trip to similar hotels, and in my opinion this should be the one by which all others are measured. The beach is gorgeous, hotel grounds immaculately kept by a (huge) team of gardeners, rooms spacious and luxurious, and well maintained with modern furnishings. The food is delicious at the two main restaurants such that there... More

We have recently returned from 10 days in the wonderful resort of Galley Bay. Having stayed at the ‘sister’ resort, Palm Island, many times we found the same focus on customer service as we had previously experienced. We stayed in one of the very comfortable cottages, full of rustic charm but still with modern conveniences. It suited us perfectly, the... More

After doing a lot of research on all -inclusives, we chose Galley Bay and are so thankful that we did! We had to stay for 2 days at another local resort prior to our check in so believe me that we had something to compare to! We had a beachfront suite ( #47 to be exact) and it was so... More

What a wonderful way to relax and unwind after a busy and sleepless wedding week. The grounds are beautiful and the water is spectacular. As a self proclaimed foodie, my wife was a bit skeptical about an all inclusive resort, but the food well exceeded her expectations. We were wowed at every meal. From the hot breakfast and delightful lunches,... More

My husband and I spent a week at Galley Bay together and loved every minute of it. Ultimate relaxation getaway! You can lie around under the sun on the sand or by the pool and do as little as you like or you can take advantage of the water sports and activities on site.
