What an amazing location, with a view to match. So peaceful and picturesque. We loved having our breakfast so close to such beauty and our dinners looking out at the sunset. Easy walk down to the beach, one of the best on the island. Huge thanks to Marco. What a gentleman.

Visited earlier this month and we stayed at the Spice Cottage. Beautiful cottage with lovely partial views to the ocean! The cottages are easily accessible (with a car) but away from everything making it a very quiet and peaceful stay. Marco was incredibly helpful and was even nice enough to pick us up from the airport (super appreciated!!). The beach...

We booked with owner Marco Della Patrona on TripAdvisor because we loved the picture from te Breeze cottage's deck - and were not disappointed. We spent a week in our rental car touring the historical, cultural and beach destinations on the island of Antigua and came home every night armed with local groceries to try to make an interesting island...

We made flight plans for Antigua before realizing that it was cricket week and the island was booked solid. Galley Bay Cottages was one of the few accommodations available. We also had friends who were staying at the resort so the proximity was good for us. We were happy to find it given this was a last-minute trip, and if...

We have stayed at the Villa, the largest property at the Galley Bay Cottages. The house is perched at the top of a hill, overlooking the ocean, Galley Bay Resort and the Armani private estate. The vegetation provides complete privacy. There is no sound to be heard, except for birds and rustling of trees. The private garden is enormous, entire...

Shamefully, I never left this resort during my four day stay. Why? Because it was simply peaceful, beautiful, calm and relaxing. The beach itself is as good as it gets and a swim is a must (careful: jellyfish alert!). The all inclusive resort never feels claustrophobic as there are so many areas to explore. The best thnig was the warmth...
