The resort encompasses the entire bay and this is an exceptional quality. Staff have excellent customer service skills and are overly attentative. The food is excelled, great choice, good menus and plentiful breakfast options. Good layout to hotel all on one level with well maintained gardens and grounds
A very special place. The destination, the staff, the food, the views, everything was perfect. We didn't want to leave
The hotel is fabulous.
Excellent location, staff were really happy to be working at the hotel and their enthusiasm came across in the excellent levels of service received. Suites were located along the beach, location was fantastic. Close enough to St Johns for shopping. Manager Cedric took the trouble to say goodbye to us personally which just about sums up the experience. Plenty of people staying were returning customers and we intend to do the same.
Galley Bay in Antigua is excellent, I haven't been to Grenada!
