I'll try to sum up what I would want to know if I were visiting Galley Bay in the future. Beach: Stunning. Very lush compared to the bare beaches of Mexico that I've visited. There were always huts and chairs available. The only downside is that the security staff would often sit right outside our room while on the job...

If you imagine a perfect Caribbean Beach scene, then Galley Bay is it. Beautiful, long, white, sandy beach, which seems empty most of the time, with Palm trees behind, and fairly minimal buildings, stunning blue water, watersports, great food, great accommodation and extremely friendly staff. I cannot fault anything about Galley Bay - it is so nice and peaceful, and...

We returned last week from our 7th visit to Galley Bay, this time to celebrate milestone birthdays and our 45th (Sapphire) wedding anniversary. We were certainly not disappointed in our choice of venue - it was our best and most relaxing visit yet. The gazebo at Ismay's was booked for our anniversary dinner and it was such a wonderful experience...

We loved everything about our holiday. It was paradise, and the staff could not do enough to make our stay memorable. The food was amazing and plentiful, entertainment enjoyable, we made some lovely friends. Our wedding on the beach was fantastic, the staff made it worry free and amazing. We would definitely return.

We stayed at the Galley bay for 3 nights after a sailing trip. Was better than I expected. We had booked a garden cottage which turned out to be 2 cottages, one as a bedroom, the other was the bathroom and wardrobe plus a private patio and pool. Very quiet, very comfortable and still close to bar and restaurants. We...

When we arrived I was so tired and worn out-when we left I felt so fantastic. The beauty, the water, the relaxed atmosphere, the quiet and being taken care of by caring employees at this wonderful all inclusive resort was just what I needed.

We stayed here for two weeks. The best thing about this resort is it's very quiet. No loud music playing or kids screaming. The resort is only 20 mins from the airport but no free transfer to and from the airport. We stayed in the premium beachfront suites on the first floor. The room is large, the bed was comfortable....
