I agree with another reviewer, the owners were very uptight all the time. Felt like we were in a fish bowl being watched what we did all the time. Doors were locked at night so you couldn't walk in the moon light. No bathroom door in our room! So if you got up in the middle of the night, you... More

we were on a work trip and could not have had a better base - a great atmosphere, wonderful food, comfortable lodgings and above all very accommodating staff - especially the owners Angie & Marty! it will be hard to ever stay anywhere else in Great Harbour ..

At the very tippy top of my bucket list, for basically all of my adult life, was the dream of seeing blue water. 20 years and 4 kids later, we were ready to make that happen. At my boss's suggestion, I looked on google earth and found the bluest water I could find, and zoomed in on the Berry Islands... More

I am so glad you found us and our beautiful blue ocean. You are quite right, Great Harbour Cay is very special and still a well kept secret and the simple pleasure of walking the beach makes all your troubles disappear. Thank you for sharing your Wedding Anniversary here with us, it was lovely to see you both so happy... More

We found the owners of the Carriearl to be really uptight, not fitting with the Bahamian care free atmosphere at all. The servers were very friendly and helpful. While the place is gorgeous and by all appearances looks like a great place to chill and enjoy, the overall vibe once you are actually there is anything but relaxing.

Ooooops! Guess we asked you to remove your Baseball Cap for Dinner! Otherwise thank you for saying our servers, one being the owner, were nice. No we are not a Bahamian Place, we are an International Restraunt and an 18+ Adult Hotel where people come to chill out from their everyday stresses. Because we are British, we do things a... More

This has been my third time at Carriearl in three years.It is such a unique and special place.The atmosphere is as wonderful as the food,drink and Marty and Angie (the owners/cook and bartender).If you enjoy pure white sand beaches,turquoise waters and deserted cays to explore this is the place for you.

Our home base was the Carriearl Boutique Hotel, the former home of Earl Blackwell (founder of Celebrity Service, see: http://www.nytimes.com/1995/03/04/obituaries/earl-blackwell-85-a-promoter-of-celebrities-and-their-events.html), which could not have been more pleasant. Angie and Marty are gracious hosts and we loved our getaway. One of the songs I always hear when I am traveling is Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.” I have it on my phone, and... More

I find that words fail me when I try to explain what a wonderful time we have with Marty and Angie. Fabulous, super, wonderful, fantastic....., but it's not enough. You have to go there yourself and see if you can come with some suitable words. This is our second visit in 2 years and most certainly won't be our last.... More

We just returned from an exceptional stay at the Carriearl. Martie and Angie own the hotel, hence making sure that every aspect of our stay was perfect. From chilled water in our room to high quality towels for boating and the beach, they had us covered. Once you arrive, you really don't want to leave this quaint charming hotel. There... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you say, if you want to completely chill out and relax, you have come to the right place as that is what a holiday here is all about. There is nothing like a great day out on a boat if you get the chance. Thank you so much... More

My wife and I had 8 nights at Carriearl. For anyone thinking of going here's a run-down. The hotel is the former home of Earl Blackwell, a New York celebrity promotor. He's worth a Google! In the late 1960's there was an attempt to build the island into a luxury destination, the airstrip was resurfaced, a world-class 18 hole Golf... More

My wife and I just returned from a 5 night stay at the Carriearl Hotel and had a wonderful time. This small hotel was quaint, clean and very relaxing.
