Coming from a Chef, that is high praise, so thank you very much. Chef Eddison cooks everything fresh, so don't come and be in a great hurry. Remember you are on Island time! There is nothing like fresh fish and lobster straight from the sea. I agree, come for some Romance. Best wishes, Angie and Marty

I have traveled extensively on planet Earth and the Carriearl Boutique Hotel is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing properties I have ever stayed at. In terms of the number of rooms, some might see it as more like a Bed and Breakfast. But once you see how well appointed the rooms are, with every finishing touch you...

I feel totally overwhelmed by your comments and compliments. Marty has always promised me that he would make 'Carriearl' the place you had to visit if you were in the Berry Islands and Bahamas, and that dream is starting to come true for us. With the help of guests like you who appreciate what we have created, the word is...

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Carriearl and we cannot wait to visit again. We arrived at the Great Harbour Cay Marina after a full day at sea and from the moment our boat pulled up to the dock, the owners of Carriearl made us feel completely taken care of and looked after. Marty, the owner, was waiting for...

Marty and I are so glad that you felt you had an 'absolute treat' with us, that is a big compliment !

Hi Tokkie and Gail, It is funny that so many visitors to Great Harbour Cay miss eating or staying with us, because they do not know we are here! I think it must be because the outside is quite unassuming, so the inside is a big surprise. We are a bit of a hidden 'gem'!!! We do have a few...

Marty and Angie are so accommodating , we arrived at 8 pm without reservations to a pack house. They went above and beyond to accommodate us and to ensure we received our food as quickly as possible. The wait was worth it because The food was exceptional, it was cooked to perfection!! The reef and beef is a must have☺️.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carriearl is your antidote to workaday worries, but is only a 20 minute flight from Nassau, and a hour flight from Miami. From the moment you walk in the door you will feel at home. With one of Dronzi's famous Rum Punches in your hand, you will just want to chill round our beautiful freshwater swimming pool and walk our amazing beach, where the only footprints you will see are your own! Owned by 2 'Brits', Angie and Marty, our British Hospitality is reflected in our attention to detail and wonderful International Cuisine. We have a 'Smart, Casual' dress code in the evenings, and we do ask Gentlemen to remove their caps please. ... more   less
