We were on a caribbean Cruise last December, and our last day was spent on carlisle beach in Barbados. We had booked the Island Inn a year ago for our 35th Wedding Anniversary, and wanted to have a look. Arrived there early afternoon, a lady was on reception, and we said we would be holidaying at the hotel next May... More

Stayed here for five nights after returning from a seven day cruise out of Barbados. Located two minutes from the glorious beach in the centre of Carlisle Bay with the huge Hilton Hotel at one end of the bay and the Radisson at the other. If you want the size, amenities and sophistication of the Hilton then this is not... More

My wife and I have just returned from a ten day holiday at the Island Inn and to say it was excellent does not do it justice. The Staff, the food, the atmosphere, the location was perfect.

I was not staying at the hotel so it is unfair of me to comment on the overall facility; however, I will comment about my restaurant experience. The day before, I stopped and asked if their restaurant was open to the public and from what I understood it was a buffet style,which to me suggested it was relaxed and casual.... More

Island Inn is a nice place, and it is quite clean. The rooms are decorated in a modern fashion and courtyard is totally enclosed by the hotel; you can sit out by a small pool (more like a plunge pool) on deck chairs. The flora in the courtyard is quite lovely. There is wifi available just in the bar area... More
