We have just returned from a lovely week at Carlisle Bay! The hotel is beautiful, lovely modern very spacious rooms and great beach with great sunloungers. The staff are all extremely nice and accommodating and friendly. The reason I would not give it an excellent rating is for two reasons; The restaurants are good, but The jetty Grill where we...

Dear emilyolivia78, Thank you for sharing your Carlisle Bay experience. Whilst we are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, we are sorry that you were disturbed by the group we had in house.

Great location and beach, lovely gardens, good rooms and delightfull staff. Everything one would wish for EXCEPT the food which was both expensive (a lot more than London prices!) and atrocious. After 3 very poor dinners and two lunches in the hotel we resorted to going out by taxi for dinner every evening. We found 4 superb restaurants so great...

Stayed as a family of four and everything was top class - accommodation excellent, staff exceptional, spa fantastic, food wonderful! Antigua airport was a nightmare on arrival and departure and is the only reason we haven't returned - but hope to one day!

The bay has to be seen to be believed, the staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb, I would recommend the catch of the day. If you are looking for a relaxation vacation in beautiful surroundings this fits the bill.

Beautiful resort with exceptional standard of service. I would certainly say that the hotel prides itself on their attention to detail and providing the highest level of customer service. We had an Ocean View room near the jetty, quiet, spacious, with all the facilities that you could need and a wonderful view from the balcony. I have read many comments...

We only visited Carlisle Bay for dinner at the Jetty Bar. Everything about this place is incredible. The staff are great, the food is amazing and if I could afford it I'd spend every holiday here! I can't recommend them enough.

Perfect island paradise! Everything you could hope for in a paradise holiday, amazing dining with international and Asian cuisine and occasional BBQ's. Rooms are huge and well fitted and the staff are so friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. Good kids club if you need it too.

Beautiful resort. Top quality beach villas and very good food. Fantastic bay for swimming and great running up the steep hills of the rainforest. Expensive but worth it. Very good restaurants. Would recommend.

We stayed as a family in early January and had a very enjoyable time there. The room was very comfortable without being luxurious and the service was laid back Caribbean. The beach is lovely and a nice touch was ice cream/sorbets being brought to our sun loungers. Afternoon tea was very nice and very English too! The food was 7/10...
