Certainly one of the most beautiful hotels and locations we have visited service is attentive and very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. Food was great and varied. Cannot wait to return to the hotel. the views on the bay will live with me forever. The temperatures could not have been better

Still here for another day out of 6. Overall it is fine but I think for the prices and options, I have to say I was disappointed on a few points. Pros: -check in and airport pick up very smoothe. And they do pick up the phone at front desk vs ringing forever at almost every place in the world... More

There is so much about Carlisle Bay which is fantastic it's such a shame that they miss some basic service points which just let the place down. When you read this you may think I'm being petty or born with a silver spoon in my mouth but I paid the best part of £15,000 for one week's holiday for 2... More

We stayed one week at the beginning of March in order to unwind and de-stress from a busy period at home. The hotel is set on its own crescent shaped beach in a protected bay. Rooms are large, comfortable and airy with good bathrooms. Very good spa treatments - although a bit toppy price-wise. Service was unfailingly friendly ( a... More

My partner and I spent five days at Carlisle Bay last week. The hotel grounds are gorgeous with beautiful landscaping, and lots of tropical fauna and palm trees. The resort is set up in such a way that it never feels crowded, and the style of the rooms while understated is gracious. We stayed in an ocean view suite on... More

We last visited Carlisle Bay for 11 days in 2011 when we found it to be the perfect place to relax and unwind given its magical location on a private beach. It's not always a good idea to return to somewhere you've really enjoyed, especially when the hotel is under new management but our recent 14 day stay was even... More

Had a great 10 day stay at Carlisle Bay. Stunning location with a pretty, private beach. Stayed in a family suite which worked for us but a bit of a dark second bedroom. Rooms probably could do with a refresh. Staff friendly and helpful throughout the hotel but could do with a bit more consistency of execution - some days... More

The service at Carlisle Bay is very well meaning and genuine, as it should be for the price. With such a stunning beach, they have an easy job, but I was still blown away by how good the staff were. I've owned a restaurant in london for 5 years and know how hard it is to train staff to give... More

The resort is set in a truly magical, serene setting. Beautiful, clean beaches that are wonderfully secluded. The first impressions, "meet & greet" by front office staff was hearty and very efficient. Sadly, the hotel is lacking in more areas than one. Firstly, the accommodation is seriously outdated. We stayed in the beach terrace which has the advantage of being... More

There is nothing more important then the first impression! We arrived tired and ready to put our feet in the sand , first had to return million work emails. Not only was wifi faster then at home but we were treated with the brightest smiles ever. Rooms were large, clean, bright and most of all the beds was to die... More
