We just returned to reality from a wonderful 6 day stay at Galley Bay. The resort was very charming, lots to love and very little to hate. We stayed in the cottage and the rooms were so much fun for my wife and I. There is the main "bedroom" hut with a tv/air conditioning and a welcome fan and the...

The water at the beach was beautiful but beach itself had some natural debe (sticks). Staff for the most part were friendly and helpful. Some mosquites but not too bad. It would have been nice if bug spay...

Just got in early this morning from a stay at this beautiful resort. It has many, many positives and I would certainly recommend it to friends and family. The beaches are gorgeous and expansive. We stayed in a premium beachfront room where we literally walked out our door and directly on to the beach. This is a quiet, secluded resort...

My wife and I just returned yesterday and can't wait to go back. Amazing setting, wonderful staff, excellent freshly prepared food at every meal in more than one restauarant on the premises. Although almost fully occupied, it never felt crowded. Not usually the "all inclusive types" but Galley Bay surpassed our expectations. Top notch drinks; as many and as much...

Very relaxing and romantic without all the buzz. The staff could have not been any more friendly and hospitable . A great place for a honeymoon or just good R&R. We stayed for 8 days and wish it were more. Already have recommended it to friends as we will definately be returning as many people do.
