The room (ocean suite) was very well appointed and with a beautiful view directly onto the beach and sea (first...

Carlisle bay isn't cheap but it just about justifies the cost due to the stunning location and incredible staff.  The bay is compact but the sandy beach is perfect if you were there for a week. And sadly we weren't able to make use of the free kyaks to explore the cove. The thing you don't hear much about are...

We stayed in February for two weeks in the hotel after spending one week in Barbados.
