Wonderful beach, nice rooms but the rest is so disappointing. Leading Hotel of the World it is not. Ghastly lobby. No atmosphere in the bar. Pool looks so uninspiring. Poor menus. Vastly overpriced. And generally shabby. Such a shame as the location is awesome and could, with a little thought be wonderful. Staff lovely though!

This was a repeat stay five years apart and the hotel is still a 5 star experience. We had a two bedroom suite overlooking the sand and beach and it was spectacular! The service is very professional although we did find an empty lobby once when we were looking for the concierge (who ended up not being available). That was... More

This is no Sandy Lane. On my 4th visit in a 20 year period to Antigua I can't help but feel that the standards of tourism have not changed much in the Island. The whole island felt it needed an overhaul. With this qualification the CB hotel provided a unique luxurious environment. The suites were well built, luxurious and large.... More

I would go back to Carlisle Bay in a heartbeat - food was wonderful, staff were friendly, personable and it always felt that they really took pride in the level of enjoyment my wife and I were having.

Carlisle Bay is a breathtaking property staffed by phenomenal people. Suites are large and well appointed, with stunning beach views. You just walk out of your suite and onto the sand.

This is my first time to Carlisle Bay and I hope I will be able to return every year. The resort is located on a beautiful stretch of beach with its own private cove. There is kayaking and paddle boarding snorkeling and sailing. But the best part of the resort is the friendly staff. Everyone is so nice and happy... More

We stayed at Carlisle Bay with our three children and had an amazing time. We could step straight out of our spacious beach suite onto the golden sand and we spent many hours swimming in the warm, gentle water, gazing up at the incredible views of the rainforest and hills behind the hotel...
