All Inclusive    

Glimmering turquoise seascapes and lush gardens create a relaxing, natural setting for those who want to decompress and escape from the world. The focal point of this all-inclusive adults-only (16+) resort is the three-quarter-mile white sand beach on the clear, warm Caribbean, where you can recline in the shade of a palm tree, soak up the sun or enjoy a refreshing swim and complimentary non-motorized watersports. The resort is located on 40 acres of beautiful tropical gardens, approximately 20 minutes away from the airport. Most accommodations are tucked into the landscape along the beach, so your next swim is just a few steps across the sand.

Part of the joy of staying at Galley Bay is dining at the two alfresco restaurants. Farm-fresh offerings are prepared with care, melding Caribbean with Continental into wonderfully original dishes. Enjoy a cooling break from the sun by day or a satisfying nightcap at any one of Galley Bay's three open-air lounges. All three serve a wonderful selection of cooling Caribbean cocktails, top-shelf liquor, and wines by the glass, along with non-alcoholic beverages.

On Galley Bay's beautiful, three-quarter-mile crescent of sand, the inviting sea is a fantastic natural playground for a host of non-motorized water sports. All lessons and equipment are included, just another luxurious reason to choose an all-inclusive stay at Galley Bay. There's no reason to take a vacation from your exercise regiment while you're at Galley Bay. Free weights and cardio equipment let you keep up your routine - or start a new one - in the comfort of the air-conditioned Fitness Center. On land, you can partake of a wide array of sports and pastimes. Galley Bay features an Astro-Turf tennis court for daytime play. To put a new spin on your game, join one of the clinics or arrange for personal instruction. For the utmost in relaxation and pampering, guests are invited to explore Indulge, the beautiful spa.

Beyond the grounds of Galley Bay, a host of exciting adventures are all within easy reach.

Galley Bay makes it a point to keep its guests entertained with the best local musicians, who bring island-inflected live music to the resort each night.

We've just spent another great week at Galley Bay. The location is perfect, with a long sandy beach. We couldn't get the accommodation we wanted, as we'd booked too late, but the beachfront room we had was spacious — with a huge walk-in wardrobe (just what we needed) and a very large bathroom. As previously, the staff members are great; friendly and fun. And the management are very hospitable people, giving a splendid dinner for returners. The food was pretty good. We often used the Barefoot Grill for simple but tasty lunches. For those who like walking there's the opportunity to walk through neighbouring Hawksbill Hotel along to Eden Beach. There are few people there. And if you are very active then you can set out early and get to Fort Barrington, with overlooks St John's. It's quite a trek though, especially in the heat. A highlight of our stay was when a huge leatherback turtle came ashore late one evening, laid eggs by our room, and an hour later heaved itself back into the sea. We shall probably be back soon.

The excellence continues...

We returned to Galley Bay April 2018 having experienced our first visit there in December 2015 and we were not disappointed, this remains our all-time favourite destination, excellent location, top class facilities and superb food (thanks Stan!), if you are looking for an extremely chilled relaxing place to stay with great staff then you must go to Galley Bay. Now it won't be for everyone (certainly not if you want a loud buzz-filled vacation) and it may not be the cheapest, but chillaxing warmth (physical and metaphorical) abounds here. Most of the staff are very happy people, and it's great (and reassuring) to see so many of the same people we saw on the first trip, especial call-outs to those who we felt went the extra mile (Stuart, Aliah, Damond and Sadi in the Sea Grape, Mike in Gauguin's, Andrew 'Stan' Baxter, Althea in housekeeping and of course Cedric the Manager who manages to make everyone feel special!). Food was excellent, superb quality and just the right size portions (you wouldn't want massive portions for 1 or 2 weeks all-inclusive would you!?), and it is definitely worth paying the surcharge for Ismay's restaurant where everything gets turned up a few notches even higher. I am sure we, like many others, will be back again before long and will carry on dreaming until then, we cannot recommend this resort highly enough, if you're still undecided go on, just do it, you'll not regret it!

Quite simply....A dream

We visited Galley Bay Resort and Spa from the UK for our honeymoon in 2015, it wowed us from the get go and continued to deliver the most special and wonderful honeymoon. The staff could not do enough for us, the setting is unbelievable and the facilities are second to none. I can't recommend this place enough and is always my happy place when I'm in need of a pick me up. We even named our daughter Ismay, after our favourite restaurant at the resort, so we always have a little bit of Galley Bay with us.

Great location, great weather, great staff, great food and drink with lots of activities to do if you can squeeze them in between the breakfast, lunch afternoon tea and dinner. This is the first time we have returned to the same place despite many travels elsewhere

From the moment that we arrived until the minute that we left everything was beyond my expections. I had read reviews prior to our trip but nothing prepared me for how magical this resort is. Our room was huge and waking up each morning to a view of paradise was amazing! We were on the quiet side of the resort. It was difficult to swim because of the rocks but the other side of the resort was perfect and clear for swimming. All rooms have snorkel gear. I highly recommend using it around the resort because there is so many beautiful fish around the rocks and grassy areas in the bay. Be sure to take a hobie cat ride! I cannot say enough about the staff. They were the friendliest group that I have ever had at any resort. The food oh my goodness!!!! Every meal we had was amazingly yummy. Went to Ismay one night and paid the extra amount but to be honest the food at the other restaurants were just as good.
