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. Join a Jeep adventure into the rainforest, play golf, or discover some of the island's 365 beautiful beaches. 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.

Can’t say enough good things about Galley Bay Resort and Spa. We came with our best friends to celebrate our anniversary and were delighted right from the start. The staff are some of the best we’ve experienced anywhere in the world. Everyone was so friendly and attentive. The resort is beautifully maintained; from the incredible landscaping to the rooms, restaurants, pool and every corner of the property. It is also a wildlife sanctuary. We got to see a turtle laying eggs on the beach and help the conservationists release baby turtles into the sea. The food was exceptional. Everything is fresh and made to order. The menus change every day at all restaurants. When it comes to the location. Words don’t do it justice. It is stunningly beautiful. If you’re looking for a place to get away from it all Galley Bay is for you.

If you are looking for tranquility, fabulous food, outstanding service and a place to just rest then you are in the right place. I can't describe the hospitality, attention to detail and outright devotion to guests that I experienced on this, my first trip to Galley Bay, From the minute you arrive at the hotel until the second you leave the gated property you are pampered, spoiled and made to feel that you are a special/VIPguest. The wait staff, cleaning staff, bar staff and other service staff are there to please you and make your stay unforgettable. Many you get to know by their first name and they know you and what you like. Smiles are frequent and genuine. They are happy if you are happy and will go to any end to fix a problem, should one arise. For example, our water wasn't as hot as we liked and from that day on we were called almost every day to find out if we liked how hot it was or if we wanted it hotter. The two restaurants that we ate in regularly (Sea Grape and Gauguin)were impeccably appointed, open air romantic and delightful. Local bands, singers and music was available after dinner every night and the dancing was fun for us. We were amazed by the number of guests that returned each year, and can easily see ourselves returning to this piece of heaven more than once. I was impressed that I got to see the resort manager almost every day and was asked how I liked my stay and what else might I need. I have never been treated as a guest/traveler the way I was treated. Do you know when people say "find your special place or go to your happy spot," well this has sure become mine. Thanks Galley Bay

Great Trip...Wonderful Staff

Beautiful setting. After reading some bad reviews about the staff,I was skeptical. Apparently its Fake News!!!! They could not have been nicer. Heck even the guy mowing takes time to wave and speak.We only did one excursion,Captian Seans afternoon trip. Highly recommend,just go easy on the Rum Punch. Beautiful scenery going out to the reef. Just ok snorkeling. Thanks to Richard Mayna,Denzel and Mr Matthews for your great service. Great place to RELAX

Beautiful views

The room was very nice and clean! The flowers and champagne upon arrival were a nice touch! Not a lot of decor I. Rooms but still nice... after all not there for the room decor. Bed was comfy and liked the pillows. The best part is the views....paradise is right outside your back door! Service and food was great! Love the coffee machine...gotta have a cup first thing! Would definitely stay again!🌅

Before going to Galley Bay, we did our research to make sure this resort aligned with the type of vacation you would expect from a resort of this level, all I can say is the pictures look nice. 1. If you like customer service that is inconsistent and poor (you will Like Galley Bay) 2. if you like open air restaurants that have birds and even worse flies that you are constantly fighting while trying to eat (You will like Galley Bay). 3. If you like being bitten by insects and ants while you sit around the pool (You will like Galley bay) 4. If you like grounds that are not well maintained (you will like Galley Bay) 5. If you like a pool that is old and not cleaned on a regular basis (you will like Galley Bay) 6. If you like a Deluxe King room , but is far from Deluxe and needs major updating (You will like Galley Bay) 7. If you like only one restaurant to eat at, with limited selections (you will like Galley Bay) 8. If you like being kept up all night because of the tree frogs and crickets (you will like Galley Bay) 9. If you like to sweat while your eating your evening dinner, because nothing is air conditioned (you will like Galley bay) Bottom line, we have stayed at some amazing places in our travels and Galley Bay is not one of them. Lastly, I would compare Galley Bay to a High Class Campground, but definitely not a 4-5 star resort. we will not return!
