Can't beat a truly beach front room! Reef with decent snorkeling right out in front. Private beach with hardly anyone else around. GREAT staff! So relaxing. Good food and drinks. Restaurants overlooking the beach. It's exactly what we want when we go to relax away from a large family and running a business.

The people were very friendly and the venue is beutiful & romantic

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, romantic, great fresh fish
It was a very relaxing vacation. The privacy and span of activities was really nice. We danced, sailed, swam and socialized. The food and libations were excellent. At first I wished for WIFI everywhere but, it worked well to have it available at a few places to reduce the distractions from relaxing... most of us are over-connected to our jobs & electronics.

Beautiful property , fantastic beach. Very relaxing vacation.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet, great place to unwind and do things at your pace
A dream vacation at Galley Bay. Beautiful property, tropical grounds. Perfect for a laid-back, stress-free vacation. Beautiful ocean- front suite with waves crashing just feet from our patio. Breathtaking views in a tropical paradise. The staff do their best to make you feel welcome and pampered. Ismay's restaurant - great food and superior service ! We will absolutely be back.

Great Vacation

Galley Bay provided our best vacation in years. The food was outstanding and the three restaurants were well staffed, clean and well run. Beautiful views in a private location right on the bay. The "superior" shore room we had was well laid out and provided everything we needed. There was a great beach and the water was perfect. I would also mention the service provided by the staff was outstanding. Not a place where one would go for load music and wild parties.

Amazing

Just returned after a 5 day stay in a Deluxe Beachfront. Water was perfect,calm and clear. Food and service above and beyond anything we've seen in the Caribbean. This is an ultimate couples escape. peaceful and private. There is no nightlife or party atmosphere here. So if you want beach, romance, and intimacy just grab your swimsuit and spouse, forget your worries and go. Bring your Sunscreen and Bug Spray for the evening. Can't wait to return.

PRIVATE and EXCLUSIVE, perfect for our Honeymoon!!!!!!

Felt like royaly there..... we were treated so well, all the staff would wait on us hand and foot. Not very crowded which is what we wanted.... NOT like a Sandals Resort..... more like where a celebrity would go for a super high quality vacation without all the people/gawkers. The beaches were gorgeous, the water was crystal clear with excellent snorkeling opportunities. Plenty of things to do on the island, we were just so happy just to relax on the beach at Galley Bay that we didn't want to do much of anything else. The cuisine was absolutely gormet.... top of the line dining. Nearly no bugs at all... and a wonderful breeze! It was sexy carribean: simple classic carribean decor, privacy, and 5 star service, what more could a couple want?

Relaxing Vacation and Great Food

Galley Bay was better than we ever expected. The rooms on the beach are four plexes with 2 units upstairs and 2 units downstairs. We stayed in one of the upstairs units and it was nice. The rooms did have A/C, but the windows do not have glass, they have wooden blinds that you roll open and closed. At first we were afraid it would be hot and loud, but neither were the case, it worked out great.\n\nThe beach was wonderful and although lounge chairs were not assigned to the units we didn't have any troubles getting the same chairs everyday right outside of our room. \n\nThe service at restaurants was great and the food was the some of the best I've had in the Caribbean. \n\nWe will be making a trip back to Galley Bay in the future. \n

Was an "OK" experience, would not stay here again

Pros: The beach was without a doubt the best part about this hotel
Cons: Staff could be much better. There are windows in the shower. When showering, water didn't get warm 4 of the 6 nights we were there
We found the majority of the staff, especially the women seemed to be unhappy and didn't really care to be working there. The bartenders moved very slowly and it took a long time to get drinks. There were no local beers available in the all inclusive package. We stayed in one of the "romantic cottages". The pool did not work properly when we got there. There were two timer dials on the wall to turn on the lights and the pump. The dials didn't do anything. We spoke with someone and the next day someone went out to fix it. After it was fixed, the pump stayed on continuously when it was supposed to shut off after timer has run out. I told the woman at the desk this, because it seemed like a waste to have the pump running all day and night. Later that day someone went to fix it and it worked fine for the rest of the day. The following day when we returned from the beach we noticed the pump in the pool was on again. We turned the dial to see if it would shut off after the timer ran out but instead it shut the pump off as soon as the dial was turned and it did not come back on again. At this point we gave up on having it working at just let it be and used the pool without the pump. The fridge in our room had a few items in it and if we wanted it restocked it would have cost more...that's not all inclusive in our opinion. One of the restaurants was not included with the all inclusive package which was disappointing. If we went back to Antigua, we would stay elsewhere.
