Our Opinion
A popular choice in Antigua, the Galley Bay Resort offers 98 guest rooms with most of them just a step away from the ocean. This resort offers excellent food from its all a la carte dining options. Great for couples.

This tranquil, charming and intimate hideaway is set on 16 hectares and fronts a superb sweep of white sand beach. Take a splash in the man-made pool grotto or meander through the trails of the adjacent bird sanctuary. The unique circular Gauguin Village cottages feature charming and colourful island artwork while the beachfront rooms have custom-made rattan and bamboo furnishings, and Haitian art. This romantic, gracious all-inclusive is ideal for the discerning traveller seeking well-appointed surroundings, exquisite beach and fabulous dining.
Location: On the west coast on 40 secluded acres, 20 minutes from the airport.

After travelling for 25 years to various resorts all over the world, this place hands down is THE BEST RESORT WE HAVE EVER BEEN TO. These people KNOW the hospitality business better than any other place we have ever stayed at. NO BUFFETS! All sit down, made to order meals! Food is absolutely 5 star from Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner! Staff is courteous, professional and always with a smile😁 Take as many beach towels as you need, no dam resort bracelet, no line ups. The resort is situated on the beach and every villa, suite or cottage is lovely. For those previous reviews who reviewed this place and said the Food was terrible, your pallet must be used to Mcdonalds! Don't come here if you don't appreciate fine dining! No blasting music during the day by the beach or pool. Great music at night with live bands to entertain you. If you are looking for TOTAL PEACE AND A RELAXING VACATION, THIS IS THE PLACE!🙌🏻 Rooms have a cottage feel and clean! Housekeeping is on point! If you are looking for fancy rooms go to VEGAS! Views are spectacular from everywhere! Can't wait to come back next year🙏🏻

Best vacation I have ever had

For five glorious days, my cousin and I got to experience this lovely treasure. We're from the Caribbean ourselves, and between the two of us, we have visited a number of other islands, but we both agreed that Antigua feels like home. No doubt a lot of that satisfaction came from Galley Bay Resort itself. From an unexpected but appreciated upgrade at check-in to the buggy trips anytime we needed it, they seem to have worked out how to run a resort to an art.Firstly, the resort...the location is unparalleled from what I have seen, The water is so blue it looks unreal, and the water is usually fairly calm so if you don't swim like me, you don't have to worry. The water is so clear that you can clearly see your feet through 5ft of water! The staff, however, are really what makes this place amazing. Always friendly and willing to go out of their way to accommodate anything you might need, even trying to meet any dietary restrictions as long as you let them know! We usually had dinner at Gauguin, and the setting and staff were the best. A special shout out to darling Denita, as well as Michael and Timothy. Breakfast at Seagrape, especially if Troya was around, was always a lovely experience. We even had lunch at the Island Grill the last 2 days we were there, it's perfect for a quick bite in your swimwear, and the choices were always tasty.The complimentary watersports were also more than adequate, and Linroy and Lenroy took us out on the Hobie Cats on two separate days. they never seemed hurried and they were very knowledgeable about the history of the surrounding areas.Don't even get me started on the massages at Indulge Spa...those ladies are awesome! Maybe it's because we were fellow islanders, or maybe it's how they treated all their guests, but all I know is that I can't wait to return!

Amazing place to go, the staff are really friendly, polite and helpful. The food is always at a really good standard and there is always something for everyone. Definitely worth every penny and would happily go back without a doubt. Beautiful views and very clean and spacious rooms!
