Just returned from five glorious days at this magnificent resort in Antigua. My wife and I work very hard and we were looking for a relaxing and beautiful getaway. We found it! Having traveled and stayed at resorts all over the world, Carlisle Bay is at the top of the class in terms of service, facilities and dining. Most noticeable,... More

An excellent hotel in every respect. Suites are very well appointed, clean, comfortable and well serviced. Beach and sea are probably the best in Antigua and most of the Caribbean, with iced water buckets, fruit etc. served free on the beach, as is afternoon tea. Food is very good, especially breakfast which is all freshly cooked and served to you.... More

As my wife and I have been to Carlisle Bay on numerous occasions I sometimes feel like a broken record when writing a review but I feel I always need to share my views....good or bad.

words can not say how fantastic this place is. Beautiful large rooms, the service is fantastic. The beach is lovely, great swimming and plenty of all inclusive water sports, including tennis courts which had a pro if you wanted to play. The food was fantastic and we would happily return.

First, the positives: Fantastic beach. Lovely pool, perfect for two small boys. The room configuration works really well, with a separate bedroom for the children. We had previously stayed at Curtain Bluff in an Executive Room with one child, and two would not have worked. Loved our beach terrace suite - only a few steps from our room to the... More

We stayed here as a family in February. Its a real compact resort built right around a crescent little beach so your never far from the sound of the lapping water. Its quite chic design compared to the more traditional Caribbean resorts, which is particularly nice. We had a beach villa just a few steps away from the water, so... More

We have just returned from what we all think was the most perfect family holiday (2 adults, children 8 and 5). First impressions were not great - we arrived, went smoothly through the check in process and were told that our room was not quite ready but would only be 15 minutes. This then turned into another 15 minutes, then... More

We visited here in April and are still raving about our experiences. The hotel manager and all the management team are a credit to the company . Nothing is too much for any request .

A most pleasant stay in a great hotel on lovely Antigua - our room was outstanding: very large, extremely comfortable, spacious and with truly fabulous sea views: picture perfect!

Food at main restaurant could be a little more adventurous and slightly less regimental, but we are dealing here with details as... More
