We received such wonderful customer service that I felt the need to write a review. The hotel, rooms, beach & amenities are all beautiful at Carlisle Bay, but with this visit the customer service really deserves the most credit. The staff made us feel so welcome & special that they deserve to be recognised for their hard work. This is...

This was our second visit to the hotel and if possible, we found it even better than our trip the previous year. We had a beach terrace suite, which are spacious 2 room suites opening directly onto the beach. A lovely large day bed on the terrace to relax on and watch the world go by. With 2 children aged...

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...

Dear Juliet B, How sorry we were to read your recent Trip Advisor report. We at Carlisle Bay have a large ongoing maintenance programme to keep the resort pristine as possible and each year when we close late summer, various projects are undertaken. In 2016 we completed the refurbishment of the main pool and updated air-conditioning and roofs on our...

My husband and I visited Carlisle for two nights after island hopping to St Kitts and Nevis! Upon arrival we were greeted with a cocktail and taken on a tour of the property. We were then shown our room which was a sea view suite with unobstructed views over the ocean, absolutely a dream come true! There was a fan,...

Beautiful resort, which is small enough to let our kids wander around by themselves. Well appointed resort, you can borrow dingy, canoe, go on a snorkling tour, or book any tour you'd like around the island. The food is really good. Fantastic tennis facilities with a fantastic coach, I highly recommend for kids and grown ups. Book early. Spa is...

Over a few years I've come to find all inclusive resorts in Antigua overpriced in comparison to others in the Caribbean especially for the service offered but this resort has my vote for the best in Antigua. The hospitality from the time you enter is evident. You're made to feel welcomed and at home. The rooms are spacious and very...

This company is failing miserably and needs a proper facelift, driving through the gate we wondered where we were headed to. The landscape is extremely shabby and its very poorly lit around the resort at nights. This was our 6th visit and we get greeted by a new general manager or assistant everytime we return. To me it seems like...

Dear Sussex L, We were shocked to receive your recent Trip Advisor review and are extremely saddened that you did not enjoy your recent stay at Carlisle Bay.
