My husband and I just returned from the Galley Bay. While we enjoyed our stay here and made the most of it, there are some things they could improve. For starters when we first arrived at 11:00pm after traveling for 20 hours there were no welcome drinks & we had to wait for 20 minutes to get escorted to our...

I came here for thanksgiving break with my family. The resort was clean, quiet, friendly and a great place to relax. You are right at the water for dinning and sleeping. Best place! The crowd is older and not a lot of water activities. But everything else was superb.

Having read the most recent reviews before our stay our expectations were high and I have to agree with some of the comments made by a previous reviewer ' Good but work needed'. The hotel is in a lovely setting and the beach is excellent although it must be noted that when a red flag is up there are no...

I wanted a beautiful peaceful resort that wasn't stuffy and over the top, but served food that was over the top. The Galley Bay was perfect! Quiet and casual with the rooms and restaurants just steps from the ocean. Our room was clean and the air conditioning got very cold, which we love at night. The rooms have private balconies...

We have just returned from 10 days at the Galley Bay and have had a wonderful holiday. The location, beach and grounds are beautiful and really make the Resort in my opinion. The lagoon which separates the hotel from the road adds to the feeling of seclusion. We stayed in an upper floor deluxe beach front room. This was large,...

Just returned from a week of R & R to get prepared for the Christmas madness! This is the first time we have been to the Caribbean and our agent recommended this resort. We were willing to go anywhere but thought we would give this a try. For the most part, we enjoyed it very much. Just a few things...

Absolutely loved this smaller boutique resort - a true gem! I tend to like smaller resorts and this one was just perfect for my husband and me. I generally wouldn't ever consider going back to the same resort because there are so many places to visit in the world, but I could see myself going back there! We booked through...

I should start by saying that after reading so many stunning reviews here our expectations were probably unrealistically high. Expecting to find something between Fantasy Island and Narnia which of course it could never be. On arrival by private transfer we were the only couple at reception, eventually after a short wait someone came out and we felt like we...

Dear Michael, Thank you very much for joining us in beautiful Antigua this holiday season! At Galley Bay Resort & Spa, we take great pride in our pristine, tropic grounds and turquoise views, and we were delighted to hear that you were impressed with our presentation. However, we are very sorry if not all aspects of your stay were as...
