We have just returned from two weeks at Carlisle Bay. The views are truly stunning and the beach is total paradise. However, to echo many of the other reviews, what makes this hotel that extra bit special are the staff. They are unfailingly polite, helpful and friendly and how they remember every guest's name is beyond us. John and his... More

We have now visited this wonderful resort on eleven occasions, its not just the superb location that attracts us its the staff, virtually unchanging, always warm and welcoming. Did I forget the great food or the best water sports department in the Caribbean. Oh yes and the tennis and spa are quite something as well. Can't go again this year... More

We stayed for five nights in July. Although out of season we were fortunate with the weather. We also benefited from there only being 30 guests in the the hotel for the first 2/3 days. The room is modern and has all the amenities you would expect. We stayed on an all-inclusive package and we very impressed with the food... More

We spent 8 nights at this hotel and had a very relaxing trip. It was very out of season and the weather was hot with a mixture of sunshine and rain. As it was out of season not all 4 restaurants were open every day, only 2 each day were open. The Italian restaurant is really only a pool side... More

This was our second time to Antigua and we decided to try something different. We picked this place due to the strong ratings and how it's right on the beach. The property did not disappoint!

Stayed here in June and again July. Really cannot fault it. Amazing food, luxurious suite, super attentive staff, beautiful resort. Set where rainforest meets beach. Already planning next visit! I am repeating myself now but the staff really do make this place, genuinely lovely people.

We stayed in an ocean-view, walkout level room for our anniversary trip in late June 2016. This time frame was considered the "off season" so the resort was no where near capacity. That said, we would absolutely recommend this resort to all vacation travelers: couples, families, people of all ages. Below are a few thoughts as you consider a trip... More
