Perfect choice
We are so happy we stayed at the The Galley Bay resort and we will definitely be back! It was everything we were looking for - an adult -only all-inclusive that was relaxing, low-key, beautiful beach, great food, and amazing spa services. We really enjoyed paddleboarding and sailing from the Galley Bay beach to nearby, Deep Bay beach and climbing up Fort Barrington (great views). The Galley Bay resort has a relaxing, peaceful vibe with incredibly happy and friendly staff. The beach is spectacular, and we loved how private it felt. (photos dont do it justice). We stayed in a second story beach front suite. Even though you had to walk around the side of the building to get on the beach, the amazing view and high ceilings on top floor, made it worth it. We spent a lot of time researching different resorts on Antigua and reading reviews and in the end felt Galley Bay was the perfect choice.

Wonderful and relaxing
From arrival to departure, you were treated as the most important guest. We were able to check-in early and allowed to check-out late for our flight. The staff was pleasant, helpful and friendly always greeting you and ensuring that you were comfortable. The resort was like a hidden sanctuary on the crystal clear blue Caribbean sea. The snorkeling gear was provided in the room and the two beaches provide some amateur snorkeling activity; the small beach on the right was over looked by Giorgio Armani houses. The Tee Pee bar was a relaxed area to socially interact with other guest over a nice cold beer or cocktail. The nearby Barefoot grill provided light grill lunches. Breakfast at the SeaGrape restaurant was fantastic taking in the fresh ocean air and the sunset in the evening was beautiful. We stayed in one of the Gauguin Suite with its private plunge pool and garden (check out the photos on the website) and loved the privacy. A must is the Shirley Height Sunday evening party and we also recommend the relaxing Captain Sean cruise and Stingray City swim. Would definitely come back again.

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.
