Much better than expected!
Posted Sep 17, 2016
A wonderful experience in September 2016. Upon arrival, we were immediately upgraded to a beachfront suite. Why, we don't know, but were very pleased and grateful and after seeing the room. The ladies at the reception area were fantastic! Very pleasant. We felt at home in the first minutes we were there. Everything about Galley Bay was great. The beach, grounds and staff are wonderful. Anyone can nitpick about little things, but our overall experience was way beyond what we expected. It took a day or so for the staff to warm up to us, but we quickly became friends with all. I was very pleased with the smoking policies. I am a smoker and was able to smoke outside my room and at the bar areas. This was my major decision maker staying there. So many people whine about smokers, but Galley Bay always made me feel comfortable and welcome. In kind, I always picked up after other smokers who don't respect the property of others. Why would they put out cigars and cigarettes on a beautiful beach? They give us respectful smokers a bad name. By the time we left, we were so impressed with the kindness of all the staff. From the property manager, room service, the grounds manager who was kind enough to explain the pruning of the coconut palms and the rest of the staff. Once at the airport upon leaving, my wife realized she left her cellphone at the reception area. We called Ernestine and she quickly put the phone in a taxi that arrived just in time for our return flight. We will be back!
