I've been there during my honeymoon in July 2009. The place is fantastic, so quiet and comfortable. My cottage was really amazing, perfectly isolated, and clean. I really think it's the best resort of the island!

If you want to slow down,relax, get to know some new people in a quiet atmosphere this is the place for you. Nothing moves fast here, unless they recognize you at the bar where you will get your drink quick. The food was good most of the time, don,t be in a hurry to eat though, the views and ambiance...

Had a wonderful holiday at Galley Bay in August. Stayed at premium beach room - step out on to beach and 5 metres from sea. Room immaculate, food excellent (ate at seagrape restaurant). Thanks to Chesley for keeping us topped up with wine. Staff went out of their way to keep us happy. Best two excursions were inland tour and...

My husband and I had an awesome time at this resort and would definitely return. We stayed in one of the cottages that was just off the beach by the pool. This felt very secluded and private, definitely wouldn't have traded it for one of the suites on the beach because those felt a lot more exposed to passing guests....

When we asked for recommendations as to a all inclusive adult only resort in the Caribbean this was the resort that kept being mentioned. We have never stayed at a smaller boutique resort but booked it figuring let's see. This place exceeded our expectations in every category. We stayed in the beach rooms which I highly recommend. When you open...

My wife and I stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary. Galley Bay far exceeded our expectations. Friendly staff, good food, absolutely gorgeous beach and much nicer accommodations than I had expected. (Their web site does not do the resort justice, imo). I can't say enough good about the resort and I'd be echoing everyone else here anyways. Suffice to...

My husband and I have just returned from a great trip in Antigua, where we celebrated our 10 year Wedding Anniversary and we made the best decision.
