My wife and I recently returned from seven nights at Carlisle Bay. We have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean, both with our four sons (staying at luxury rental homes) and as a couple, and we clearly favor 5-Star accommodations. I have read other reviews that called the resort "dated" and in need of sprucing up. I didn't think so... the...

I have just returned from a trip to Carlisle Bay with the family. I'm afraid that unlike a lot of the reviews I found this hotel to be so disappointing. The accommodation is lovely and spacious with a fantastic view of the beach and sea and it is very relaxing to hear the waves. However I thought that the resort...

Dear MLKuK, Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on Trip Advisor. We were delighted to read that you enjoyed both the suites and indeed Carlisle Bay’s location. Naturally we were concerned to read that you felt there were not quite enough activities during your stay. We aim to provide a wide variety of diversions, including an...

I can spend this entire time speaking about the beautiful ocean, the gorgeous pool, the first class room, the incredible and delicious food, the wonderful atmosphere, the relaxing spa or the extracurricular fun of tennis, boating and scuba activities, That however does not do Carlisle Bay justice. The essence and primary reason to experience and escape to Carlisle Bay comes...

We spent a week here at the end of June with our 3 adult children having previously visited at the same time last year on our own. Just about the best complete break money can buy. The all inclusive rate (which I believe they are now extending year round) is good value and generously applied, although some of the charges...

Our Caribbean hotel criteria was pretty straight-forward. Complimentary kids' club for a 2 year old (near impossible to find) + excellent food. Carlisle Bay did not disappoint. Our son spent each morning in the lovely, air-conditioned club with 3-4 lovely ladies taking care of 5-6 children in his age group. There was also a covered play area and shaded pool....

Carlisle Bay was a serene and relaxing escape with pristine accommodations and delicious meals on the water. I enjoyed snorkeling hiking and paddle boarding all arranged by the hotel. One of my favorite memories was the daily afternoon tea served on my private patio and evening cocktails in the sand.

My husband and I had a marvelous time at this extraordinary resort. We were in the adults only area, and had plenty of privacy and quiet. The beach is long and beautiful, with sand as soft as talcum powder. Those with children will be happy with the family-friendly attitute. Food and drinks are outstanding, and the service leaves nothing to...

The hotel is absolutely wonderful and at a great location. Right on a secluded Caribbean beach, surrounded by lush green vegetation. A phenomenal combination for sure. The staff is amazing. Extremely friendly and *always* very helpful. The rooms are spotless and very well kept. The espresso machine in the room was a very nice touch. Having said that and to...

We went to Carlisle Bay when I was recovering from a knee replacement operation. It was very restful and staff were very helpful. We had an ocean room on the ground floor near the restaurant as requested and it was ideal. It is a lovely beach and the sea was good to swim in even with my reduced mobility. I...

OK, so Carlisle Bay is pricey but it is almost impossible to find fault with this super hotel. It seems to hold a niche market all on its own - a boutique hotel which cates brilliantly for families yet has laid back adult sophistication too. The Beach Suites are perfectly designed. We took our 19 year old daughter with us...
