Martin & Angie are superb hosts, who accommodate your every need from marina pickups to laundry service. Stuart’s blackened conch is a unique appetizer which we requested night after night. The cuisine is fresh and unique and Stuart is happy to cook your fresh fish with tasty spices and roasted veggies. As King George sang in Hamilton: “you’ll be back....”
rarely can you find a true gem located on a 5 mile white sand beach that is usually yours alone! The Carriearl Hotel is such a place and I urge all of you to go visit before the world finds out about it. Marty, the owner, goes out of his way to make sure your every wish is granted and the current chef, Stuart, could easily find a job in any of the world’s best restaurants. In addition, Marty can line you up with one of the all time great fishing guides, Percy Darville. Don’t miss this one!
I went with a friend to the Carriearl in early December for a very quick get away from the frigid Northeastern weather to see what Great Harbour Cay had to offer. We booked about a month out and Angie was very responvie and squeezed us in. They picked us up at the airport and got us around the island as much and as we needed. We did some fishing with the local island fishing guide and they helped with all of the arrangements for that as well. The Carriearl is fantastically located near a secluded beach on the East side of the island. It is the only decent restaurant in town and serves great food. We ate all of of our meals there and never had a bad one..... in fact it was hard to eat breakfast as we already had enough from the night before! The staff was excellent and we always had a drink and/or were asked about what we wanted to eat or drink. The chef did an excellent job and had enough variety on the menu that we were able to eat something new every night. The food really was outstanding and I felt lucky that we had this available as there are little to no options on GHC. The bar is well stocked; bottled beers, draft beers, great wines, a great selection of rum drinks and a great selection of spirits. Rooms were great. Ours was very clean and was cleaned everyday. We had a king bed and a day bed, both very comfortable. Overall this was a wonderful find. Angie and Marty are absolutely wonderful hosts and they have done a great job building a beautiful get away on a fantastic island! We felt very welcome from the time we met Angie at the airport, until Marty dropped us off at the airport. They really love this place, and it shows. We can't wait to go back.... hopefully very soon!…
My husband and I were involved in the initial development of Great Harbour Cay in the Berry Islands, Bahamas, in the mid-60's and I had always wanted to go back and see what had transpired since then. Marty and Angie, the proprietors of the Carriearl Boutique Hotel have done a wonderful job of renovating and enlarging the hotel. The staff were all courteous and friendly and their new chef, Stuart, was a smash hit.....wonderful food and fabulous presentation. The rooms were large and comfortable. I would go back to visit in a heartbeat.
WE LOVE THIS PLACE! We have had the pleasure to enjoy many lunches and dinners here. The hosts, Angie and Marty, are always welcoming, friendly and happy to see us. The food, drinks and service is always fantastic, we would love to be able to stay overnight here one day. They have a pool at the back and a small window that opens up for service outside and have a very short walk over to sugar beach which is stunning. We would highly recommend this place. We are never disappointed. Thanks Angie and Marty.
