"My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Galley Bay 17 years ago and it was wonderful. We were on a cruise last week and visited Antigua so I phoned in advance and asked if we could have lunch at Galley Bay. We were welcomed with our friends and family. Peter and Bridesphine looked after us beautifully and served us a fantastic lunch and drinks. Thank you so much, it was very special to return. We will be booking another holiday at Galley Bay very soon." - source Trip Advisor
