We booked our holiday through Air Canada Vacations and everything was as stated. The AC rep Denise was more than accommodating and was very knowledgeable about the island and gave us all the information we needed about the hotel, shops, taxis etc. It is best to book excursions through Denise as there won't be any question of additional costs.The hotel...

We stayed in the premium beachfront suite for our honeymoon. The room was better than we imagined. We absolutely loved the view and we had the beach right at our door. All the restaraunts were amazing and the staff was always very polite and helpful. We are planning to come back every year.

My husband and I had the time of our lives! We had so much fun, that we only left the resort once. Make sure to try kayaking and snorkeling around the sunk ship in the bay. You won't be disappointed. We also got bottles of free champagne for our honeymoon and birthday! We had such a great time. Don't waste...

Well, where can we begin? This was our third visit to Galley Bay and I must say it has surpassed our last two visits! Let me start by saying we are well travelled and left our previous resort due to the huge influx of children (not what we need after ours have left the nest lol) Galley Bay: - Child...

But that is about to change. Just to qualify my standards, we have travelled to many places in the Caribbean, and the world for that matter and stayed at many, many great resorts. But, I have never stayed at a hotel or resort that had customer service like this one. We went to Galley Bay to celebrate our 20th anniversary,...

Bar areas and restaurants excellent with food as good as it gets in hotels with all sea facing tables. Grounds, & reception areas very basic but superior room was excellently situated on the beach front with very much your own area and...

Stayed a week at Galley Bay from March 1 to 7th. Weather was great. Staff, service and location set this resort apart from all others we have visited. All were top notch. One of my favorites was the water sports. My past experiences with AI's water sports never seemed good with too many excuses to NOT to let you use...

This was our eighth visit to Galley Bay which probably says all you need to know about how we feel about this wonderful resort. Wish we could stay longer than 8 nights but circumstances dictate otherwise. On each visit we try and do something different. This time we took the nature walk to Fort Barrington with Shiloh (i/c watersports), which...

Galley Bay is deservedly widely acclaimed by guests as the location, facilities, dinning and great staff are bound to put a smile on the face of the discerning traveler. The overall experience was also enhanced by the many friendly guests, often from Britain and Canada and the majority over 50, who greatly added to our enjoyment of the resort. Starting...
