Trip Report antigua and galley bay

Jump to last reply

Galley Bay , on a secluded and carefully manged bay in the west of Antigua , has been a revelation this last week. We found great beauty and fantastic service,. Theirs is an understated luxury, nothing fussy, but great attention to the details that count. It is an all inclusive, but that shouldn't put any one off. My very difficult Belgium husband ( more demanding than the French about food) was won over by interesting modern style cuisine using local fresh food. And there are three restaurants, each discretely situated on the beach, so you can ring the changes. The nightly entertainment was first class, but I would expect that of Antigua which has such a strong musical tradition.
This resort won my heart with its delightful staff , the lovely situation and its compassionate attitude towards the wildlife that was there first. You swim with pelicans, and while you sleep turtles come on shore and lay their eggs. The resort maps, but does not publicise, where the nests are, and they ensure that any young turtles that head off in the wrong direction are gently shown their way home to the sea. It's been the best holiday for a long time and we have already set aside dates to return.
