This company is failing miserably and needs a proper facelift, driving through the gate we wondered where we were headed to. The landscape is extremely shabby and its very poorly lit around the resort at nights. This was our 6th visit and we get greeted by a new general manager or assistant everytime we return. To me it seems like...

Dear Sussex L, We were shocked to receive your recent Trip Advisor review and are extremely saddened that you did not enjoy your recent stay at Carlisle Bay. Whilst in the past the hotel has had quite a high turnover of General Managers, it is after all a transient industry; I have now been at the hotel eighteen months and...

Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful escape at Carlisle Bay. It was the perfect place for a family to stay. Our suite layout had a bedroom in the back for the kids and we walked off our front patio right onto the beach! The kids club was simply fantastic and the ladies there were really warm and caring with...

We recently returned from 10 days at Carlisle Bay, this was our second stay and it was just as good if not better than the first. The location is hard to beat, all of the rooms have sea views and most are literally on the beach, the ground floor suites are perfect for families with children. Everything is close at...

My husband and I just returned from 6 nights at Carlisle Bay. We have been to many luxury resorts in the Caribbean, including in Antigua, and we decided to try a new one this year.

Sat here looking out to sea across the palm ridden beach sipping the complimentary Rose from the General Manager john Rogers and eating the snacks makes me feel special. My Fiancé has just commented on how perfect this place is, which are not usual words I here. 12/10.

We travelled for some winter sunshine, booked through BA Holidays. We flew on BA2157 from LGW, good flight on a 777 which was generally in good condition but with an outdated entertainment system- Virgin have a similarly timed flight which might have a newer aircraft, worth checking out. Arrival was excellent, with priority pass as Carlisle Bay guests meaning we...

The food at lunch was outstanding. A great taste combination served by very friendly staff who are very obviously formally trained but experienced enough to react to our needs. Besides the excellent food and service the setting was so peaceful which made a great start to our holiday.

The bay at which this hotel is situate is serenely quite and beautiful. It's a wonderful spot.
