Beautiful room, lovely beach, both well looked after as befits a 5 star establishment. The rest was a complete disappointment, The catering was not up to standard and we felt the service was not professional, though mostly well meaning and we were left feeling that we had overpaid for this part of our stay.

Ten family members - 4 couples and children: we have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks in Antigua staying at Carlisle Bay. Everything was excellent: this hotel has a most enviable position on a small cove between the capital and historic dockyard 'English Harbour' and just half an hour from the airport. Accommodation worked very well with our ground floor...

As near to paradise as you can get. My first visit, and my wife's second. I can see why she has been wanting to come back for so long! The location is near perfect, you are cocooned within the bay itself with its beautiful views wherever you look. The staff are all fantastic and so friendly, you feel welcome and...

I felt compelled to write a review of our 5 night stay in Carlisle Bay. The staff here are the real winners.

I just spent 6 days at the Carlisle Bay. Absolutely no complaints. Everything was perfect, food, room, beach, smiles, temperature, even the Library is worth giving an eye. Of course, I didn't see the bill, that might have cooled my satisfaction, but as invited, wow!

It had taken me 12 years to persuade my husband to go back to the Caribbean after a disastrous holiday in Barbados. Wherever I chose had to be perfect, and Carlisle Bay was. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the beach. There were soft drinks in the fridge, snacks and an expresso machine. The beach itself is lovely with comfy...

Beautiful location. Great beech. Really great staff. Very quiet. If you're looking for a secluded and quiet getaway it will be very difficult to beat Carlisle Bay.
