We only visited Carlisle Bay for dinner at the Jetty Bar. Everything about this place is incredible. The staff are great, the food is amazing and if I could afford it I'd spend every holiday here! I can't recommend them enough.

Perfect island paradise! Everything you could hope for in a paradise holiday, amazing dining with international and Asian cuisine and occasional BBQ's. Rooms are huge and well fitted and the staff are so friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. Good kids club if you need it too.

Beautiful resort. Top quality beach villas and very good food. Fantastic bay for swimming and great running up the steep hills of the rainforest. Expensive but worth it. Very good restaurants. Would recommend.

We stayed as a family in early January and had a very enjoyable time there. The room was very comfortable without being luxurious and the service was laid back Caribbean. The beach is lovely and a nice touch was ice cream/sorbets being brought to our sun loungers. Afternoon tea was very nice and very English too! The food was 7/10...

I first visited this hotel in Dec 2009 and it was lovely. Clean, beautiful setting and luxurious rooms. However, after returning in Dec 2016, it looked like there had been no real care and attention to the facilities. Rooms, although still lovely were a bit shabby. Stained mirrors, cracks on doors etc. Areas needed painting. With the exchange rate it...
