My husband and I stayed here in May 2014 for 5 days. A mini break without our 3 kids! I can not fault it. Our room was perfectly situated with a beautiful view of the quiet beach (about 4 blocks away from the dive center, top floor). We were on the all-inclusive package and were worried that we would be... More

We have stayed at Carlisle Bay more than most since it opened. It had a few problems when it opened, got better under two good General Managers and is now on the slide again. The bad points are: How do you reconcile calm zen oasis with specials that give free rooms to children. You do not. Even if you go... More

Just returned from 4 nights at Carlisle Bay and could not be more pleased.

From the minute we arrived until the time we boarded our plane, we were treated like Royalty. Kerry-Ann greeted us upon arrival and gave us a fantastic, informative tour of the premises.

We all have goals. One may strive for perfection, which is difficult enough for one person. Can you imagine how hard it is for a hotel resort to have all their colleagues strive for perfection? Not only does Carlisle Bay strive for perfection, they surpass it day after day, month after month and year after year. So much so that... More

We have just returned from Carlisle Bay and were a bit disappointed. Maybe our expectations were too high but all in all we would rate this resort as a 3 or maximum 4 star hotel. There is no atmosphere, no music, nothing. The lobby is too big lacking a proper front desk and attention to detail. The beach is ok... More

We were travelling with a 14 year old and a 12 year old. We found the hotel to be absolutely fantastic. It was our first dip into 'all inclusive' and we were nervous about how that would go.
