As the most skeptical vacationer, I had issues with our first night accommodation and started posting my frustration on tripadvisor at 5am. When we arrived at Sea Grape for breakfast, the General Manager -Chris made it a point to introduce himself and fixed our issues even before we finished breakfast. It was such an amazing experience that I retracted my...

Stayed at the end of May for a 25th anniversary - first time visitor - and want to clarify (or confirm) information from what I read on Trip Advisor prior to my trip based on my experience: 1. Rough water - fiction in May; only true in the early months when there is a significant swing in temperatures. 2. Favoritism...

Spent 12 nights here in May 2014 to celebrate our recent wedding and we were not dissapointed. We had a brilliant Superior Beachfront room that was probably 25 mtrs from the sea and we're already missing the relaxing sound of the waves. Aged 54 & 60 respectively, my wife and I would have still liked a little more evening entertainment...

My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights. It was our first time in Antigua and we were very pleased with our stay. Location of the resort is great; only a 20-minute taxi ride and cost was US$20 per couple. Resort is gated and monitored by security. On arrival, we were greeted with cold washcloths and rum punch. Yum....

My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary at Galley Bay. We had the most incredible time. When you arrive you are greeted with rum punch, Champagne, or fruit punch and are escorted to your room. We had a beach front room, which did not disappoint. We walked out to our own private patio and were within steps from...

We had a fabulous stay at Galley Bay. Our first few days consisted of eating, reading, and napping in various places around the resort. We enjoyed trying new things at lunch and dinner -- everything was delicious, but the fish and steak dishes were our favorite. We really enjoyed the intimate and relaxing setting at Gouguin (restaurant). We did not...

We had an eight day holiday here after a rather frenetic eight days spent in Washington and New York. What we wanted was a time to relax and we were not disappointed. This is a beautifully arranged resort with the most friendly and helpful staff that we have experienced. We were in a deluxe room which was spacious and comfortable....
