Beautiful, clean, calm beach. Excellent food. The nicest staff in the Caribbean. Called just to check in on us and make sure everything was ok, every day. Antigua is a beautiful island, and the residents seem to have a pleasant optimism-more so than other Caribbean islands I've been to.

Galley Bay is the perfect resort for an indulgent, relaxing break offering excellent accommodation, superb restaurants and attentive, friendly staff. Spent a relaxing week, soaking up the sun and enjoying the facilities on offer. Sad to return back to the UK.

We spent 10 days at galley bay in Feb/March 2017' taking in two England cricket matches. The hotel is beautiful, set in extensive well maintained gardens, on a perfect Caribbean white sand beach lapped by crystal clear turquoise blue seas The size of the hotel means that there were never "too many" people, and for most of the time the...

This trip was my wife's Christmas present to me! We tried to get in last year, but our window opened late and it was fully booked. The alternative in St Lucia was a very poor substitute. We stayed about 5 years ago and have been telling anyone that would listen that this is one of the best paces in the...

..........relaxing atmosphere, lovely staff. No wonder there are so many returning guests every year. This was our third visit and it gets better every time. With some hotels familiarity only serves to show up the cracks; at Galley Bay familiarity only reveals why one wants to return again and again. There were some changes this year. The library area now...

It was our first and hopefully not the last trip to Galley Bay. Beautiful location with spacious rooms, wonderful restaurants, friendly guests and staff, and the most beautiful beach ever. We stayed in a premium beachfront suite and really enjoyed the extra space and cozy couches. The service was top notch and we give kudos to Hazeldeen for her warm...

This resort has all the makings of a tropical paradise. Our suite was on the ground floor towards the right of the resort and, not having been before, was a lucky choice as the french windows gave out onto a veranda which, in turn, was literally, "on the beach". This is approximately 750m long and comprises dazzling white sand with...
