I have to say I have been back numerous times to this hotel worth and without my 3 boys. I like the fact it's low key, has a stunning beach, the staff are friendly and helpful. I would suggest if you do stay to venture out and go into English Harbour, go into the dockyard there, visit Shirley heights, go... More

Carlisle bay has a wonderful setting, it virtually has the beach to itself, and all the rooms are near the beach. As the beach is sheltered by headlands on both sides the sea is completely calm. The beach is also very large for the low number of guests, and there are turtles in the bay. We are a family of... More

On my second visit to the hotel, it did not disappoint. Great attentive service. Food excellent as was the whole experience. Most be one of the finest beach resorts anywhere. The staff cannot do enough for you. Whilst all were good the hard working and ever attentive Camion and the ever present Tony on the front desk deserve special mention.

Ok, let's start with the (very few) negatives and get them out of the way first as I want to end positively!
