Another wonderful stay Carlisle bay- The staff went above and beyond to look after us during our week of relaxation. Stunning property, great food and service which has gone up a level since our visit last year. Thanks must go to management for making us so welcome once again. We look forward to returning in 2018!

So 12 years ago we popped into this hotel for lunch and said one day we would love to be able to afford to stay there... and we finally made it for a half term week with our son, aged 6. We'd been again for lunch 7 years ago and reaffirmed our thoughts and we were not disappointed with our...

When you pull up to the Carlisle Bay Resort, you think to yourself, this place has potential, that doesn’t last long in my case. We arrived at 3:30pm and were quite hungry. Only to find that out of the 4 restaurants on premises (2 are open per day) both were closed and we had to order room service once we...

We just returned from a spectacular stay at Carlisle Bay, where the exceptional staff attended to every detail. The property itself is stunning, with impressive, generously sized suites overlooking the private beach and tranquil bay, surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation that is naturally beautiful and well manicured. The design of the hotel is also fresh and modern, while remaining sophisticated...

Visited this resort in April of 2016. Outstanding beach, pool and activities for adults and kids. Food was great, although not much variety from night to night. The two bedroom are great if you have kids and provides a beautiful water view. The staff and the concierge were extremely friendly, and made up for some of the bumps on a...

We stayed for 2 nights before spending the rest of our stay at a different hotel, and although our ocean view suite was to die for, and the beach was beautiful, all other things I have to say about this hotel are pretty negative.

Dear Abbi H, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us via Trip Advisor from your stay in May 2016.
