Relaxed luxury
Jan. 2021 • Couples
We landed the day before the UK lockdown so the resort was very quiet. The room was perfect with an uninterrupted of the sea and our own gallery, decking and beach area. The food and drink were fabulous and the staff were attentive and helpful. As it was so quiet we had no trouble booking into the restaurants, yoga, gym and water sports. I would recommend a trip on one of Captain Sean's sea cruises. Holiday was topped off for my cricket loving husband when the on the Sat night included 2 famous retired international cricketers!

A beautiful beach to relax on .
Jan. 2021
Antigua has so many lovely beaches that it is difficult to choose the best. During my stay in Five Islands, I found this beach to be quiet and relaxing. I encounter only one other visitor which made me feel that I had the beach all to myself. No facilities but parking on the side of the beach is available. Bring your food and drinks.

Nice and quiet

This beach is dominated by the Galley Bay resort. Other than that, it is quite peaceful. The ocean is nice and sand is brown sugar like. A worthwhile spot if you get the chance to get a relaxing day at the beach.

Nice adults only resort with a good beach
Nov. 2019
We were welcomed by friendly staff and offered a refreshing face towel and drink. Our room was the top category and was very newly renovated. Great size bedroom area with an adjoining living room. Bathroom was very large with shower and large bathtub. The terrace was large and contained 2 lounge chairs and table. All rooms face the water and are on the beach. We refer 2nd floor rooms. There is no room service and no bar or food service on the beach. But there are a couple of restaurants and bars very close to the beach. The pool area is nice with a beautiful rock waterfall. Lots of lounge chairs on the beach and at the pool. Was never a problem.

We found that the food good....but not great and the choices were fairly limited.

Another perfect week!
Sep. 2019
Back for the 6th time to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it didn’t disappoint! Room on the beautiful beach, the sea was rough for 2 days which we’ve not previously known so spent some time by the pool . Food was great at both restaurants and the beach side grill . As ever the staff were brilliant, lovely to see them again & couldn't do enough to please. No doubt , we will be back !

A Tropical Paradise Memorable Experience
Oct. 2019 • Couples
This was a relaxing tropical Paradise vacation. The room was beautiful and literally right on the beach. The water was warm and absolutely gorgeous. I was impressed with the staff they were very nice and accomadating. Natasha and Peter really engaged with their guests and was very comical. The food was delicious at both Restaurants.
The best resort that I've been too.

Land Cruise
Oct. 2019 • Couples
The beach was beautiful. The location of the room on the beach was also nice. It’s definitely a resort for seniors and there were a few honeymooners in 30’s. There was not much in between. The food and wine were acceptable but not great unless you paid extra. The staff was very friendly and attentive except the breakfast crew and drinks at pool. They were slow and acted bothered with any requests. There were also too many rules - no sitting on cushions at outside bar if you had been swimming, no food at pool (not even the lunch you ordered nearby), only one beach towel per guest and not any extras available at pool. Additionally, no beach chairs on beach near bar area (only at individual rooms) and no umbrellas available. No music anywhere except at night if live music. No music at bar, no music at pool and no music in restaurants. Accommodations were clean and decent but need to be updated. Water sports was lacking. Manager was very nice and attentive. Three nights and four days was the maximum I could stay here...bored and sick of food choices by day three.
