We were hugely looking forward to our first trip to Antigua having travelled to other Caribbean resorts. initially we were excited as the staff seemed so friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble... as I say Initially.... Breakfast in the dining room was unappetising and we had to wait over an hour for this meal. We then reverted to Breakfasts... More

Beautiful resort with excellent service! Felt welcome every step of the way as the staff worked to get to know you and make sure you were comfortable. I strongly recommend this resort for anyone looking to "unplug", enjoy the beach and excellent service. I will definitely return to Carlisle Bay.

If you are a tennis obsessed, it is definitely your place. if not,... More

Carlisle Bay has the advantage of its beautiful, stunning setting which cannot be faulted. Watch the colours of the ocean change colour with the waves as you chill out on a lounger (if you can get one)! Overall a lovely place but needs to make a lot of minor improvements to warrant the price! Breakfast needs to up its game.... More

We stayed at La Samanna in St. Martin a few years back and were completely unimpressed as the service was lousy at best. At Carlisle Bay, the service was much better, but a little inconsistent. We loved our room and the quaintness of the resort. The spa services were the best I've had in a long time! Kudos to the... More

Absolutely loved the visit to Carlisle Bay! The setting is just beautiful, the room was great but the staff and the management were over the top attentive to every need. Really a beautiful place.
