Friendly welcome with customary Caribbean cocktail and hot flannel on arrival in main reception, which is a golf cart ride away over the lagoon to the main resort. Very attractive reception with well tended gardens and large lagoon. We booked premium...

First time to Antigua and Galley Bay. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary there and traveled with 2 other couples. We knew what to expect because of all the reviews we read. Most all of them are accurate. The good and the very few not so good details are relative to each guest who visits Galley Bay. It is so...

This is our first time at GB, and indeed Antigua. We had booked a garden cottage, ideal as it was there was a bees nest in the garden that put us off, for no reason other than the risk of swarming while sunbathing or chilling in this idyllic setting. Once reported, to our surprise, we were upgraded to a beach...

Our first visit to Antigua but most definitely not our last....and we plan on a return visit to Galley Bay next May.

What can I say that I haven't already before? Galley Bay Resort is a wonderful place to vacation. Our room on the beach is great. It is so nice to be able to step out the back door right onto the beach and the beautiful view that is really unbelievable. And, to see the sunset from our patio is breathtaking....

Where do I start... The arrival, a glass of champagne each and very quick & easy check in. You then get a ride to your room with a small group of other guests & your cases, the driver then gives you a short orientation of the resort before dropping you off at your rooms. We stayed in a Gauguin Cottage...

When signing in, they told us...
