Marty and I are so glad that you enjoyed staying with us, as much as we enjoyed your company. The Bombay East gin was obviously a great hit with you both, and was new to our Drinks List.

The weather was perfect and the accommodations quintessential. This is one of those "best kept secrets" ! A wonderful experience if you are looking for a relaxing stroll on the beach, excellent food, clean rooms, and that feeling that you are staying with friends. A quaint hotel with unique decor adds to the experience. We arrived by air, and after... More

From the quaint comfortable decorations, fantastic food, exquisite service, to the incredible views....this place is fantastic. We came by boat with friends to Great Harbour Cay. The weather delayed our boat travels home, but this hotel kept us comfortable, entertained and well fed. We will be back and would recommend Carriearl to anyone/everyone. Our recommendation would be NOT to miss... More

Rarely have I come across a hotel which I don't want to write a review on. Carriearl is definitely one of those hidden gems that I want to keep all to myself. When I decided on spending my birthday on an Out Island in the Bahamas, I was at a complete loss as to which island to go to and... More

Thank you Isimpo for taking the time to write so much about us and Great Harbour Cay. Marty really enjoyed cooking your Chinese dinners, and the tips you gave him. Our Island is still very unknown so all your research and the information you put together will really help visitors to enjoy our tiny piece of Paradise. We both hope... More

My wife and I spent 2 wonderful weeks at the Carriearl in mid July...the reference to "Dark and Stormy" is of course to the habit forming rum drink that Marty introduced us to and far from a description of our stay. We have been to 7 "out-islands" and are accustomed to the "little-to-do-and-all-day-to-complete-the-task" routines that one embraces on small islands.... More
