My wife and I stayed in a Premium Beachfront Suite at Galley Bay in February 2017. The room was clean and spacious with a very comfortable king-size bed. The resort aims to be a relaxing place: there's no piped music and although there are live bands in the evenings they play at a level that doesn't intrude. The grounds are...

I am writing this review on our second day upon noticing some differences between Galley Bay and other all inclusive resorts we have visited over the years.

Wow wow wow. Every single aspect of this holiday far exceeded our expectations. We went on holiday here in December 2015 for our honeymoon, staying in the beach front rooms. The staff here were exceptional, but drinks were to die for. I had relatively low expectation for the food at an all inclusive, but that was also amazing. 3 restaurants...

After travelling for 25 years to various resorts all over the world, this place hands down is THE BEST RESORT WE HAVE EVER BEEN TO. These people KNOW the hospitality business better than any other place we have ever stayed at. NO BUFFETS! All sit down, made to order meals! Food is absolutely 5 star from Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner!...

For five glorious days, my cousin and I got to experience this lovely treasure. We're from the Caribbean ourselves, and between the two of us, we have visited a number of other islands, but we both agreed that Antigua feels like home. No doubt a lot of that satisfaction came from Galley Bay Resort itself. From an unexpected but appreciated...

Totally amazing resort. When we arrived they upgraded us from a Deluxe Beachfront to a suite..nice touch. The staff was so friendly. I have trouble walking and the first room was a 2nd-floor beachfront suite. Beautiful view but stairs were difficult. No problem they gave me a beachfront walk out the next day & porters moved all our stuff! They...

The resort is in a beautiful location with a lagoon at the entrance and a great beach, although the waves can be rough at times. The rooms are large, especially the bathrooms with walk in showers, but are a little dated and in need of some upgrade. There are 3 restaurants, one of which requires and upcharge, and the food...
