Best resort ever!

robert l on Dec 05, 2022

My husband and I went for our 10 year anniversary and we absolutely loved Galley Bay. Everything about this resort was amazing! We will definitely want to return and can see why most people do. This place is literally paradise and the staff made our 10 year anniversary so special!

Best all inclusive for people who don’t like all inclusives!

Annie B (London, United Kingdom) on Dec 05, 2022

Amazing stay! Loved everything about it. If you’re not really into typical all inclusive hotels or large resorts then you’ll love it here. Went with my family - parents and sister (all adults). We’ve never been to an all inclusive hotel before, as typically the food/drink is well know for not being good quality in all inclusive resorts. Galley bay is so different to the stereotype! It’s perfect. Stayed in a beach front room - stunning view and lovely balcony with very comfortable room, big bed, AC, regularly stocked fridge, champagne on arrival, large, clean bathroom. No problem with mosquitoes in the room or even in the hotel grounds. Hotel grounds are well kept, natural and beautiful. Location is fabulous with galley bay being the only hotel in the bay. Feels very private and peaceful. Interesting trails around the grounds too, including the ‘vegetable patch’ where lots of fruit/veg/herbs are grown for the restaurant. Restaurants are nice with open air views of ocean. Eat in lovely beach side cabanas - this restaurant needs booking the morning of. Considering this is all inclusive, I didn’t have high hopes but the food was really good. Menus changed daily at each restaurant for lunch and dinner and food was fresh and delicious. The staff at galley bay will cook you local delicacies on request too. Cocktails were great - not watered down and lots of choice. Wines were also nice. Rum shack onsite where you can do free rum tastings. Staff are so friendly, kind and welcoming, they go out of their way to help you and are always smiling. Good selection of free sports - stand up paddle, kayak, snorkel, little boat, bikes, yoga. Not lots of added unexpected costs as I’ve read online for other all inclusive resorts. I think due to the price and romantic setting, it attracts honeymooners and older couples - not the place for you if you’re a party animal and want to stay up past 1am. My only criticism is that the evening entertainment takes over a little. When I was here, most guests tend to gather around the decking area for the evening singing/show. On the whole the entertainment was good, but if you want more of a mellow evening for conversation and drinks you have to go to one of the other bars. The other bars seemed to lack ambience though, with no background music and very few people there. Overall, if you want a relaxing, sophisticated but down to earth, wholesome holiday in beautiful natural Caribbean surroundings you will not be disappointed. Had the best stay here!
