Perfect Honeymoon

Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: When the blinds were open in the cottage, the staff working on the landscape next door could see in our room. The fan was also very noisy.
We stayed in one of the Gaugin Cottages. The amount of private space you have is amazing, perfect for a honeymoon! The plunge pool was exceptionally nice to have. Everything was clean and updated. The beach and main pool were only about a minute away, which was very convenient. The beaches were kept clean and simply beautiful. The food was awesome, some of the best meals we have ever had. The bars served premium spirits and you never had to wait long for a drink. The resort had so many free activities to offer as well, like cooking classes and guided hikes. We were honestly blown away by our stay at Galley Bay. We will definitely be returning.

Excellent hotel, with the feel of a private beach

Posted Jun 4, 2015
Pros: beach, food, cocktails
Cons: it would be nice if the wait staff brought drinks to you on the beach.
Location: beach felt private, the waters were calm, we sailed up and down the coast with Capt. Sean who was excellent, and shopping in St. Johns isn't far.
beachfront rooms with views you only see in a magazine. only hotel guests on the beach with no one peddling merchandise to you. very secluded and relaxing; off the beaten path but you end up in paradise. the food was EXCELLENT! i was unsure how i'd like Caribbean food, but i left craving it the week after. the resort was not crowded at all; they were 93% occupied and it felt like a lot fewer people than that.

A nice experience for a couple married 50 years.

Posted Apr 26, 2015
Pros: The setting is beautiful but the surf is strong and very rough.
Cons: How do you “fix” the rough surf?
Location: This is a gated community so staying on the property is the norm. If you are inclined, there is a pool table, and croquet field. A pool is also here
Staff was excellent and very helpful. Whenever we needed something we were sure one of the staff could solve our problem. However, the bed was very “lumpy” and hard for me to get in it because I am so short. The toilet had to be flushed several times because it wouldn’t clear the contents on one flush.

Nice and Quiet Resort in Antigua

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Recently went to the Galley Bay in my honeymoon. The resort was very nice and quiet. No kids which is a huge plus. Nice pool area and a long stretch of beach. We ate mostly at the Sea Grape restaurant and it never disappointed. The Barefoot Grill was a great choice for lunches. The staff was always very nice and friendly. They were definitely one of the best parts of the resort. The room (one of the superior rooms) was not quite as nice as we would have liked, but we honestly didn't go to just be cooped up in the room so it wasn't a big deal.

unbeatable position

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Galley Bay has a great beach, reasonable food (more like home cooking) and is close to the airport. It represents good value for money. The staff are not overly friendly with a few exceptions. The gym is too small for such a large hotel, becoming crowded once occupied by 4-5 people.

Excellent Honeymoon Experience

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: The intimate and calm setting throughout.
Cons: Music played at the Tee-Pee bar
Location: Friendly culture. We did not have to venture away from the resort, but we took the bicycles out for a "spin."
This place is fun, intimate, and tranquil! My wife and I honeymooned here and it met all of our wants and exceeded our needs. Setting: Super chill, intimate, and a great escape; not crowded like most resorts. Staff: Super friendly and fun staff with great sense of humor! Bar: Drinks were done just right! Food: Amazing choices on every menu for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner - there is something for every diet Beach: Beautiful views with the bluest/teal water. The sunsets are breathtaking and an ideal end to a busy day of play. Water Sports: Sign up and Go! Just tell them what you want to do and they set you up! We kayaked, Hobied, and snorkeled! Room: We stayed in a cottage, and it was a fantastic oasis setting for our honeymoon. We discussed that we would come back and we would stay beach front - because: We want to walk onto the beach from our door! For the budget: Best. Place. Ever. Also, go to the spa - you may as well soak it all in.

Stay of a lifetime

Posted Mar 8, 2015
Prepare for the most restful and relaxing stay of your life. This place does beach resort with a perfection that you can't beat. Exquisite food and views, with the rooms so beautiful and in the right places. You will love your stay and it's worth the money, believe me, I couldn't afford this place but I'm so glad I did it anyways. Went for my honeymoon and can't wait to come back. Stay away from Captain Sean is my only advice, he's a salesman who wouldn't leave us alone. Book your excursions through the hotel, NOT HIM.
