We visited here in October half term, 2016. Expecting it to be busy, we booked nearly 18 months in advance to get a specific room - which was well advised, but in the end the place was half full, which was perfect! We were lucky enough to have a Carlisle Suite A, on the ground floor, which was just perfect...

Very rarely do you find a resort with such attention to detail. The grounds are truly amazing, the many tennis courts really good, a kids club that is very clean and well staffed, accommodations that are the envy of many resorts, staff that is attentive and caring and professional. The beach pods make you want to stay there all day....

For people who want the most relaxing of vacations this should be your place. The resort takes up the entire beautiful bay beach. There are no power sports such as jet skis or parasailing. The suites are wonderfully big and well maintained. The staff could not try any harder to please and never pass by you without a warm greeting....

Warm welcome from management and staff on arrival as well a refreshing drink which was appreciated. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed with a view of the beach. The bathroom was every bit as luxurious with twin sinks, a large bath and a separate wet room shower. The grounds were immaculately maintained and the attention to detail paid through...

We've just enjoyed our third visit to the Carlisle Bay hotel, and I guess that makes us regulars! There's a reason for that... It's fab! Just the right size of place for our family, small enough that it's quiet and friendly and large enough that there's families for the kids to make friends with. We stayed in the resort and...

The Carlisle is a very well run hotel. The facilities are great and the staff are well-trained, efficient and friendly. We would echo the favourable comments in this column. Our only word of warning is around the price of meals. A typical dinner for two with wine will cost around $170 after tax and obligatory service charge. On one evening,...

We have just returned from an extremely relaxing half term week at Carlisle Bay. We had visited before and previously thought the hotel was superb.
