this is the second time in 6 months we stayed here and once again we had a fabulous relaxing time. Don't expect loads of nightlife, this hotel to us is all about quality relaxation. The staff are what sets this place apart from others, from the managment all the way down the staff are the friendliest most helpful staff we...

The hotel has two types of suites, Ocean and Beach, the Ocean ones are far better but ensure you have a high room number as sea view can be obscured by some beach villas. Beach villas are more suited to families as have two bedrooms but are smaller. The beach is well maintained and all sun beds have towel laid...

Dear daab B Thank you for taking the time to share your comments on Trip Advisor. We were all delighted that you enjoyed the service. I was concerned to read however that the dinner menus did not meet your expectations. East restaurant focuses on Thai, Japanese and especially Balinese cuisine, as East’s Head Chef is from Indonesia. The concept is...

Just returned from a wonderful break at Carlisle Bay. It fully lived up to the recommendation from friends who had stayed on several occasions and from the moment we arrived, we felt relaxed and welcomed. Our room (top floor Ocean Suite with balcony) was spacious, stylish and wonderfully cool after a hot morning on the beach. The restaurants were very...

The staff at Carlisle Bay are great. When I only had a small window to fit in a SCUBA dive they made a call and got me on a boat the next morning... they focus on the small details to make your vacation feel like a vacation. Cheers to everyone. _S

We had just spent a wonderful 10 days with friends in Tortola and booked to stay at The Carlisle Resort as a chill-out before heading home. From the moment we landed in Antigua we were looked after amazingly. When we arrived at the Hotel, we knew we had reached......PARADISE. Everything about the place was fabulous and we were made to...

The rooms are large and gorgeous, amenities all there, spa nice, tennis courts well maintained, beach pretty. Nonetheless, there is something just slightly boring about Carlisle Bay. Staying there is like borrowing the soulless beach home of a rich guy who never uses it. There is an absence of any feeling of uniqueness, specialness, or place. The food, service, and...

Invited on a company trip we spent five days in this resort. Had never done that before, it's not really our thing. Still, life in Carlisle Bay was very pleasant. Nice, large suite, kept clean and tidy several times a day by friendly staff; kind service and good quality food in the restaurant(s); good other facilities (wifi, gym, tennis courts)....

Make no mistake about this hotel, it is a resort not a boutique style hotel. Though the room decor and general hotel surroundings could be improved and are a little 10 years ago, the real selling point of this place is the friendly, all-accomodating attitude to children. We had to stay longer as our baby daughter was not well and...

Great location, good facilities, gym, tennis, spa, restaurants, waterskiing, private dining on the jetty. No far from English Harbour but too far for a night out. Menus good but repetitive and so not varied enough for a week's stay. You need to hire a car or two or three days to explore the island otherwise you're trapped in paradise. Lagoon...

After you are accepted through the metal gates of the compound, the grounds are nice and well maintained. Staff is slow, yet accommodating, as one would expect no less from a "leading hotel of the world". To our surprise however, we couldn't get over how many kids there were at this resort. If you're looking for a quiet secluded respite...
