Another lovely holiday
We had a return visit to Carlisle Bay in May of this year and it did not disappoint. The Ocean suites are wonderfully spacious with beautiful views. We stayed on an all inclusive package which I would recommend and enjoyed good meals in all the restaurants . Any slight disappointment with the infrastructure is more than made up for by the amazing staff who are without exception welcoming , attentive and professional. Looking forward to my next visit !
The Friendly Island
We have had many 'island' holidays around the world including Seychelles, Bali but Carlisle Bay, Antigua probably tops them all for quality of residency and friendliness of staff. Every staff member was there to deliver 100% service, nothing was too small to deliver. We are considering going again next year.
We had a fantastic stay at Carlisle Bay, 8 days in an Ocean Suite perfectly situated between the jetty and water sports at one end and tennis courts and spa at the other. The suite was beautiful with a large balcony and day bed overlooking the ocean and beach. There are 4 restaurants, breakfast at Indigo's on the beach was always good with super efficient staff and a mixture of buffet and a la carte. Our favourite for dinner was the Jetty Grill as the food and service, we had Kalin, was always amazing it's brilliantly run. East had gorgeous sushi and steak but felt a bit tucked away off reception. We did a lot of yoga and pilates with Sidre who was a superb teacher and we also took a lot of tennis lessons with Nigel which were brilliant and he made up for our only grumble - the condition of the courts. These were not the "well maintained" courts advertised as they were all badly neglected. They do have plans to sort this though so fingers crossed it happens. Everyone in the hotel from Tony and Latisha in front office to the restaurant and general ground staff were friendly and happy to help with any issues, we'd definitely return to this lovely hotel. I'd only add one comment, apart from the tennis courts, and that would be to reduce their plastic waste by considering reusable water bottles for guests and water filling stations.
Wow.. just wow
As you drive towards the hotel you are a little uncertain the surroundings are very rustic and a little unkempt You drive through the gates and you are blown away 9 tennis courts , had a lesson with Nigel he was good!! Amazing property Everything about the hotel is amazing The pools , the restaurants, the rooms all up there with the best of the best Gym was great , it has a library.. We had a room with a sea view and it was fantastic.. Rose petals to wash you feet and nice touch. The food and service was very good .. This place is excellent and made our holiday.. I would 100% come back..loved it…
A fantastic holiday at a world-class resort!
We stayed at Carlisle Bay in early June and we were absolutely delighted with our entire experience. Check-in was efficient, yet relaxed and welcoming. The gardens and landscaping are very well kept and the entire resort feels tropical and in-keeping with the island vibe. Our suite was large and absolutely perfect for families with kids. We stayed on an all-inclusive plan and every meal we ate was excellent and service was always with a smile and timely. The hotel are diligent with mosquitoes and sand-fly management. Not one of us in our party of 8 had any issues during our stay which is not typical of the Caribbean where bugs can be an issue. Overall we had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday and we would certainly recommend Carlisle Bay to family and friends. We will be back next year!
