Are you looking for neon lights, blackjack tables, buffet dinners, stretch limos, shopping until dropping, and Elton John cover bands? Well, then this place is not for you—go to Vegas, or somewhere else far, far away! However, if you ARE looking for quiet, cozy, beautiful, PERFECTLY clean, with every amenity you could hope for in the turquoise and azure Bahamian... More

Thank you so much surfbunny and spud, not just for the fantastic review but for the Idaho potatoes and the Brussels sprouts you brought us!! I am not sure what Customs at Nassau thought about it when they found them, but we sure enjoyed them!! We love having you to stay, and the fun we have together. I hope 'Spud'... More

We stayed at Carriearl for the first time in January 2016 for our annual mother/daughter trip. This was exactly what I was looking for – quiet, no crowds, good food, property on the beach, rest and relaxation. How to get here - We flew JetBlue direct from Boston into Nassau. 4 hour layover (on the way back as well). Then... More

We are just back from the Carriearl and can't say enough about our stay. First and foremost, owners/hosts Angie and Marty go above and beyond to ensure visitors' comfort. Literally from the moment we arrived we were treated like long-lost friends. The hotel / restaurant itself is charming and beautifully decorated with both a touch of the islands and a... More

Spent only one day in Great Harbour Cay and had a fabulous lunch and conversation with the owners Marty and Angie who own and run this very special place as they call it with an "British Twist". They showed their love in all the details and presentation for our delicious lunch! A real charming spot with clean bright rooms, fun... More

We are so glad you found Carriearl, and came back for lunch. I know your time was precious as you just flew in for the day. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, it was a pleasure to meet you all and to practice a bit of German with your friends. Maybe you will come back and stay sometime?... More

If you want to "get away from the crowds" and have days relaxing and enjoying the Bahamas' environment, this is a great hotel and island to stay on. If you want shops, crowds and commercialism, then you will need to go elsewhere! and perfect hosts.....

We spent a superb week staying at Carriearl Boutique Hotel on Great Harbour Cay a 25 minute flight from Nassau. We wanted a holiday away from busy tourist resorts, crowds, a place to relax and chill. This ticked all the boxes. Our Ocean room called "Rooster"; was very comfortable & spacious with it's own individual air conditioning. Double doors open... More

Visiting Great Harbour Cay and stopped for lunch at this lovely spot! Food was so good! Decor, view and service are wonderful. I can only imagine how great the hotel experience would be. Great venue for an entire family or special event. Had such a pleasant time visiting with you!

Marty and I are so pleased that you enjoyed lunch with us. Maybe you will come back and stay for a few days with us sometime, but if my memory serves me right, you were travelling on your boat?

I have been to many amazing large resorts and small boutique hotels. This place trumps them all. Whether you visit the small island for lunch, dinner, cocktails or vacation, this adorable, seaside slice of heaven sits on the beach with views of Aqua, ocean water. Clean accommodations, lovely staff and a private pool. Strongly recommend for a full-service, yet rustic... More

I took a last minute solo trip to Carriearl in May for 6 nights. I was lucky to sneak in on a busy weekend and then have 4 days with the entire place by myself.

Such a beautiful place! Very posh in a tropical seteting. The food & drinks at the restaurant are great, and the view can't be beat. Just steps away from the best beach I've ever been to... 5 miles of silky white sand, and you will be lucky to find even 5 people sharing the whole beach with you.

I have to agree with you that we do have an amazing beach here. 5 miles of the softest sand and a beautiful, safe ocean. I have been to lots of lovely places in the world where you cannot swim in the sea because it is either polluted, has a rip tide or is full of jelly fish!! Thank you... More
