a perfect winter get-awayPosted Feb 5, 2014
Pros: the layout of the grounds and the proximity to the beach. We had a deluxe room (#14). steps away from the water.
Cons: transportation to and from the hotel. we had to pay for a taxi (about a 15 minute ride).
Location: St Johns (the main town) is close by (about 10 minutes by taxi). The location on the west coast is good.
we couldn't have been happier and more satisfied with our recent stay at Galley Bay. It was more than we expected, from the gorgeous grounds and lay out of the resort (sort of a gated compound), to the friendly staff and services. Right on the grounds there is biking, jogging trails, a pond for fishing, tennis court, fitness room, large pool, and hammocks, a crocquet area and plenty of beach to walk. Very nearby is a nice hill to hike and get a beautiful overview of GB. It was probably the most relaxing vacation we've had. Would absolutely stay again. Of course the weather was great too, temps in mids 80's during the day (spotty clouds), and mid 70's and balmy at night (perfect).

Gorgeous view, quiet and relaxing.Posted Jan 13, 2014
The food was delicious, bed was comfortable and staff were wonderful. Actually, after a week of bliss at Galley Bay, our flight was cancelled and US Airways put us up at Jolly Beach all-inclusive for one night. That place was uninhabitable in my opinion and re-confirmed how exceptional Galley Bay is. We will definitely return.

25th Anniversary TripPosted Dec 27, 2013
We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary. The staff was wonderful making us feel welcome and placing a bouquet of flowers (with champagne) in our room, that were freshened every day. The food was delicious and the weather perfect.

Birthday Treat in ParidisePosted Dec 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
We have just spent 10 days in Antigua and 5 were here in Galley Bay and the other 5 at Reef View Aptments in the South of the Island. Galley Bay lived up to the expectation of a 4 Star hotel. Room 18 had a wonderful outlook on the first floor to the beach, the bed was very comfortable, food in all three restaurants very good and services at the bars and restaurants of a high standard. A pool side drinks services would have been nice extra. The sea can be a little rough at times and getting in and out can be tricky. For non competent swimmers or those not steady on their feet this might be offputting, but once in, the water is delightful. They don't advertise that you can use the local bus into St. Johns, but it can be taken. No. 61 from Five Islands Village, a 10 mintue walk from the hotel entrance. Great holiday, have come back very relaxed.

Amazing Resort!!! The Best Staff!!!Posted Dec 3, 2013
What an experience of a lifetime!! We went for our Honeymoon and wanted a off the beaten path feel. We didn't want too coorporate!!! And this Galley Bay is just that!! Only 172 guests stay at this resort at one time. So you basically see the same people all week long. Perfect!!! And we went during busy season! The Staff are so friendly. They really do know how to make you feel right at home!!! We will be going back to Galley Bay Resort!!!!!!

Relaxing, quiet resort with beautiful viewPosted Nov 14, 2013
My husband and I stayed 5 nights at this lovely resort. We stayed in the private Gauguin cottages. The staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful views. Delicious meals. Yummy rum drinks. We met great people and had a fabulous time! Give the opportunity we would go back again! The only complaint was our dinner at Ismays. Also we would have enjoyed some music in the bar area and poolside.

amazing beachPosted Nov 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Loved this hotel. The room was excellent. Bed very comfortable, lots of closet and drawer space. Good bathroom. Loved our terrace with really comfortable lounge chairs. Steps to the beach. Food was great. Drinks delicious, recommend the coco loco. I went with another single friend and we were the only singles so the nightlife was a bit quiet but was easy to get taxis to off the resort at night. Would stay again.

Beautiful honeymoon, porch was steps from OceanPosted Oct 29, 2013
Location: Plenty of on and off the resort trips to be had, the only one that we did was the Circum-Navigation, taking you around the entire island by boat.
Amazing honeymoon, we stayed in Premium Beachfront #83. South side of the beach, The location was private, all restaurants were romantic, and delicious food served every meal. The staff were incredible, friendly, polite, humorous, amazing. The management team is also phenomenal, greeting you each time they see you, to wanting to do every single thing they can for you. The alcohol that they served were top notch brands of any type of liquor you can think of. Beach was beautiful, grounds were well maintained, and the ocean and pool area was fantastic. Awesome experience and would recommend to any couple seeking a romantic getaway
