Took the opportunity for a quick get a way. The location was splendid weather was nice high 80’s. We had a wonderful stay. The entire staff was so accommodating with smiles constantly. Food was well presented at all the dining places on the resort, and was 5 star. Will definitely plan on a return. We stayed in one of the Gaugin huts with private pool. Very relaxing. The grounds and beach front were very clean with easy entry into the ocean.

Nice couples getaway
Beach is wonderful. Was rough most of our stay but got in one day and clear blue water. Pool is kind of tacky for this resort. Seemed more like a Disney hotel pool. Enjoyed it though. Ordering anything off the menu at breakfast takes far too long. Food was good. Would like to see an organized tennis clinic or cardio tennis every day as an activity. Gym was nice. Great 3 nights added to our vacation.service was good.

A gem in the West Indies.
Wonderful gem. Beach powder white, plenty of on site water and land activities. Food exceptional for all inclusive. Snorkeling all along beach just 10 feet in. Quite and relaxing. Resort area lush with flowers and palms and well kept.

Honeymoon Paradise
Wow, what can I say about Galley Bay...? I almost don't want to say how great it is because I don't want it to be booked when my wife and I want to go back again! Galley Bay was absolutely amazing and better than I could have ever expected. We stayed in one of the cottages with out own plunge pool. The A/C worked great and kept the room cool. Our view looked out over the lagoon and was a short walk to everything we wanted to do on the resort. The beach was great with plenty of chairs available. There are quite a few little reefs right off the beach to snorkel around. The food at Galley Bay was absolutely amazing. I have been to several all inclusive resorts and this was hands down the best. Seated service for all the meals, no mass produced food here! The drinks were great and the staff very friendly. Natasha P was our favorite bartender. They have live music nightly and we sat in the rocking chairs overlooking the ocean and listened to live music each night. If you are interested in a party resort, this is not the place for you. Everything is closed by midnight and its just a great place to relax and enjoy the company of your significant other. We were there on our honeymoon and loved every second we were there! We can't wait to go back!

Great Caribbean Vacay!
Galley Bay lived up to its reputation on our first visit and we hope to return next year. This is a charming, low-rise, adult all-inclusive with a mix of American and British guests (as Antigua was a British island). Our second story premium beachfront suite had a magnificent windowed bathroom with double showers and sinks and a large tub, cathedral ceilings, ample closet space, a comfortable double bed with good lamps, a sunken living area (two couches, TV, minibar, sink, coffee setup) and a lovely front porch with sunbeds overlooking the beach. Others we met loved their Gauguin cottages and beachfront rooms. Beautiful beach with ample loungers. Surf rough 2 days, Caribbean calm for 3. Suggest you take a snorkel cruise with Captain Sean, hop in a cab to a nearby sheltered bay or hang at the lagoon pool with waterfall, sunbeds and umbrellas, handy to the Teepee bar and Beach Grill. The food, all waiter/waitress service plus buffet items at breakfast, afternoon tea and bar snacks, was uniformly delicious (poached eggs on crabs cakes with creole sauce, fresh fish sandwiches at the grill – where people also raved about the burgers! – lobster thermidor and boneless goat curry were standouts). The drinks were ample and endless. Best of all, the people who work there are lovely, friendly and helpful.
