The Carlisle Bay is a wonderful hotel on a quiet bay. Very child friendly. The children were comfortable going in and out of the sea as the water is very calm. The unlimited usage of kayaks, paddle-boards, etc add to the fun. By night, they were playing tennis on the lit courts. Unlimited bottled water is also very important, especially... More

I was only able to stay for one night in a villa, although I was there on business for several days. The accommodation is absolutely beautiful and very high standard. The view as i sat on my balcony with my delicious breakfast watching the birds nibbling on a piece of melon was so stunning it made me want to cry.... More

We were supposed to stay at Hermitage Bay but they made a mistake with our reservation so we ended up at Carlisle Bay. And I am so happy that we did! Everything about our stay was fantastic. The resort is beautiful. The rooms are lovely and spacious. The food was excellent (a pleasant surprise I wasn't expecting from an all... More

Just returned from a wonderful holiday at Carlisle Bay, with a three year old. It is a beautiful compact resort. Everything is very close which is ideal with a young child and means every minute is spent relaxing rather waiting for lifts/buggies/service. There are really two resorts within one - 20 family suites one end of the beach and the... More

Lovely beach holiday, especially perfect with young children. The resort is small so everything is close by, and the children can be independent around the resort. Great watersport facilities with Kayak, hobby cats that can be borrowed, and used on the very quiet waters of the bay - perfect for kids.. The tennis club is fabulous, the teachers are great...

… but not really for us. For a large group of friends or family, particularly with young children, who want a luxury hotel but not at the exorbitant costs some charge in peak season, CB could be perfect. The resort is compact, the beach safe and secluded and the bedrooms - we stayed in the adult end - elegant and... More

when I realised that I hadn't reviewed our stay in November. The last time we stayed at Carlisle Bay was 2009 and my review said that everything was perfect. Well in 2014 even more so.

Our stay at the property benefitted from the 7 nights for 5 promotion then running. We stayed 8 nights and the 8th night was charged at the same rate. I have no criticisms of the property and experienced wonderful antiguan hospitality throughout. I am booking again for 2015.
