Ketha and Nola are wonderful people that treated us very well! The beach was clean, quiet, and breathtaking! Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. Menus were diverse and portions were perfect. Nightly entertainment was excellent.

Looking for a great resort in the Caribbean? If you don’t travel with your kids, Galley Bay in Antigua is a beautiful place to stay.

I was part of a two couple group from western PA that spent five days at Galley Bay. We were all pleased with our first all-inclusive experience! First and foremost, the natural beauty of the area is great-the water, flora and fauna is beautiful. The entire property was very well maintained, with no sightings of litter or unkept landscaping (on...

The Galley Bay was everything we were expecting. From the moment we arrived the resort was quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. My husband and I often felt like we were the only ones at the resort even though the place was packed. We had an upstairs room #24 which felt like the perfect location. The view off the deck was amazing!...

We had a great holiday at Galley Bay - the location, staff, food and accomodation were fantastic. We would definately return, the beach and snorkelling were the best of the Carribean. Great duty free shopping in St Johns.

Incredible, beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. It's about 90% couples (mostly newlyweds, some older though). Went with a friend and we still had a blast though, but don't go expecting to meet people and make friends. The water and beachfront is amazing, the water sports staff is very helpful and friendly, and the food is great. Especially at Gauguin. It's pricey...

Galley Bay is by far the best resort I have had the pleasure to visit. But it is not for everyone. It has a special niche among resorts. If you are looking for relaxation, with rooms on the beach, all inclusive meal plan with fine food and liquor (I come from NYC and it rivals some of the better restaurants...

We had an oceanfront room with a deck (#74). The room was very comfortable and it was wonderful watching the sun rise from our bed. The one thing that did surprise us was at all the restaurants you order off a menu......no buffets (which we hate!) The food was delicious and drinks plentiful and all the employees were helpful and...
