This was the very best for a couple to begin married life together. Here are the pros and cons. Pros: - The moment you enter the resort you know you have made the best choice of choosing Galley Bay as your resort. Greeted with a smile, professionalism, the luggage cart and a cocktail! Even the transfer taxi man said that...

It is close to the water sports area and 30 seconds walk from the Teepee bar and Grill, it was so handy just to wander off and have...
