    A wonderful relaxing holiday at a very welcoming and gorgeous Antiguan beach resort.

    We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Carlisle Bay. This stunning resort is set on one of the prettiest and largest bays on the island with spacious suites which are located right on the endless sandy beach. The sunsets are so pretty and the entire resort exudes calm and tranquility. There is an abundance of water sports, tennis, gym and yoga available but if you just want to chill on the beach, enjoy the warm turquoise sea and be pampered with cocktails from beach service, this is the place for you. We were blown away by the wonderful food in every restaurant, the management and staff are very welcoming and caring, nothing is too much trouble. Car rental is very reasonably priced and nowhere is too far, there are 365 beaches in Antigua which should not be missed. We love Antigua and this trip did not disappoint. Thank you Carlisle Bay.

    Every Time I was Greeted During My Stay It Was By My Name - Every Time, Every Employee

    I agree with other reviewers that the rooms are ready to be refreshed. That aside, the bed and pillows were wonderful, the rooms are large and airy, and the grounds are immaculate. This a very well-run place with extremely well-trained employees. The team that took me for a snorkel (Garfield and . . . sorry!) were great. Had a safe and amazing time on the reef. The restaurants on site are solid and selected to offer variety. Different places are open on different nights, so you might not always have a choice of all four. Some things were out of each meal—it's disappointing because it can further limit a fairly limited menu, but not surprising, given that Antigua is not exactly in the middle of a farmer's market.

    Amazing Stay at Carlisle Bay

    My stay at Carlisle Bay was wonderful. I visited as a solo traveler needing complete relaxation and it was perfect. I didn't leave the resort once the entire week and was perfectly content. I would love to go back to see more of the island, but Carlisle Bay had everything I needed. A huge comfortable room, great restaurants - more options than most resorts this size have, a great beach and amazing service. I want to give a special shout out to the staff at Jetty Grill - Charmaine, Darlene and Jahmeeka were so wonderful to chat with and took such good care of me, that I ate there 3 of my 7 nights.

    An Unbeatable, Unforgettable Caribbean Vacation

    Quite possibly THE place to spend a Caribbean holiday. Fantastic surroundings, a wonderful beach, incredible rooms, four epic places to eat on site and to top it all a flawless crew of friendly, approachable, very capable staff who give their absolute best even when the temperatures are too much even for the guests! The place looks out on a beautiful sheltered bay with white, powdery sand with coral blue sea with which to enjoy a raft of adventures courtesy of on-site activities like sailing, paddleboarding and snorkelling. The four restaurants give you a delicious, varied set of menus with which to choose the finest cuisine and you won't tire of the multitude of cocktails and drinks available at the bars, one of which is right by the spacious swimming pool. Staff keep the place spotless - and are always there, ready to make you feel very special and very welcome. We enjoyed the great banter, fun and laughs with the bar and restaurant staff with whom we became almost family! Concierge and admin staff also were super polite and super efficient, attending to our every needs and the senior management were always attentive and always approachable. We must also mention the wonderful driver called Lava who took us everywhere we wanted and made extra special care we saw the very best of Antigua and understood its tremendous history. Ask for him at the main desk, you won't go far wrong with him. All in all, we had eleven unforgettable days in Carlisle Bay and would recommend it every time to the discerning holidaymaker who wants a little more than the standard sun and sand vacation. It is way, way better than that.
