Just returned from Galley Bay, staying in the Beachfront Rooms which are ( as you might expect) right on the beach. This was our third visit, so you can probably guess we like the place. It was nice to find that quite a few of the staff remembered us from previous visits - but first-timers get the same warm welcome...

My husband and I just returned from a week at the Galley Bay resort, staying in the Gaugin Cottages. What a wonderful place! The check in process was very fast and we were quickly taken to our cottage and welcomed with a bottle of champagne in our room. The cottages were quite unique, really 2 cottages joined by a covered...

If you look at my reviews you’ll see that we have mostly stayed in Cuba, however the weather there has become so unpredictable and the evenings so cool that we decided to head further south. As always, looking for an all-inclusive, adults only and not too far from an airport. Once I read all the great reviews for Galley Bay...

My wife and I have avoided "All inclusive resorts", but were thrilled to have chosen Galley Bay for all the right reasons. 1. Food. Excellent at all the restaurants. I read how so many people get tired of same food at all inclusives, but not here. All open air seating which we loved. . Breakfast, lunch dinner all great quality,...

Galley Bay is an outstanding resort: the food is of a very high quality, the rooms and suites are beautifully appointed and super-clean, the setting is picturesque - the bay, Caribbean Sea and palm trees. The shrubs and foliage on the resort are colourful and beautifully appointed. The management and staff are excellent - competent, friendly and helpful. The resort...

We previously stayed at Galley Bay in 2012 and enjoyed it so much that we decided to return in January 2014. Upon arrival at reception, the member of staff immediately greeted us with a ‘welcome back’. A number of other staff also remembered us from our previous visit (Vaughan, Everton, Althea L, Sandy) which was nice. When we got to...
