Lovely hotel in a great location. Old school luxury with attentive stuff but not in your face. The beach is right on the doorstep and the option of a number of restaurants made for a relaxed stay. Would definitely go back

We recently stayed 4 nights at Carlisle Bay during Spring Break. Upon checking in, the staff was super friendly and helpful and very accommodating. And I'm not sure who arranges for the "EZ pass" through customs but boy is that awesome to skip the line when you land! Our beachfront room was spacious and clean, the bed is very comfortable...

I just got back from this property and I can't stop recommending this place to everyone I talk to. It's a gorgeous hotel with an impecable style. The food was fantastic and service was just lovely. From the moment you walk in the hotel until you step out you feel like in a Disney movie. I wish I could remember...

The charm of this place lies foremost in the awesome staff who do their job with a smile. They really get to know your tastes and wants within a couple days.

What a fantastic hotel right on the best beach in the whole island. Lovely complimentary activities including a rainforest hike and snorkelling trips. Fantastic service and incredible breakfast! Would return in a second.

So enjoyed my stay at this fantastic property. I was slightly apprehensive based on previous reviews, but it totally surpassed my expectations. The location is picture perfect and the grounds kept immaculately, staff so friendly and always with a smile. 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...

Beautiful location lovely staff genuine very helpful and respectful. Would I come back ? To answer this I pause and wonder why I cannot say yes automatically. An opportunity to do so much but to expensive to enjoy so many facilities go wasted. I.e. 9 tennis courts beautiful left empty. The gym and health treatments left empty. It was 41...
