WOW best holiday ever!

That was the comment from our 7 & 5 year old! It was the second trip for us so we knew what to expect but WOW just WOW. It was even better than we thought it would be. The tone is set at the airport with their fast pass through immigration. When you're traveling with young children that is much appreciated. We were sitting around the pool in no time. The service, the food, the rooms, the hotel management, its the small details which makes this place heaven on earth. We'll be back.

It is pretty much faultless

One our best beach holidays ever. The staff, totally charming and helpful. Our room very well sized, very well fitted with wonderful sea view. The beach is perfect, quiet, soft sand warm sea, good water facilities. The half day boat tour was first class. Food good enough in all regards but pricey. We would say worth mixing up meal times by going out. All very good except Sheer Rocks was a let down, loved Pillars. A really great trip and going out of season was a bonus as the room rate is very competitive. Something else we liked was that the hotel want precious with the guests, very casual but really well delivered. As said, pretty much faultless.

Utter Bliss!

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and my 70th at Carlisle with four of our familyWe arrived after all the BA problems at Gatwick to Paradise we were welcomed by Tony and shown immediately to our Ocean suites followed by rum punches on the beach. Dinner was fantastic and the cocktails amazing, by this time we were all really happy!. Carlisle goes out of it way to make you feel relaxed . Children are catered for they have a kids club at the far end of the beach and we did not hear a peep out of any children except joyful laughter. There is a full operational gym, spa, yoga on the beach Pilates The is a daily bulletin of activities which you are given on arrival so you may choose your activities Water sports are free and we took advantage of all the facilities. we booked the all inclusive option, which includes service and tax most alcohol was included except fine wines and spirits nothing was too much trouble the staff have a great attitude with efficient service, we were in heaven we were given VIP treatment at the airport and transfers were handled by Maureen at St James travel the service was sublime, thank you so much! If you are considering Antigua, you will not be disappointed in this beach resort . Look out for the wonderful array of beautiful coloured sox that Michael wears, it made me smile Late check out was given freely thank you so much for making our week with you so special, we will be back!

Better than ever

Just returned from yet another visit to Carlisle Bay Resort. If you want a relaxed vacation there is nowhere better. Rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and simply furnished - no unnecessary clutter. You can relax on your own terrace /balcony which is furnished with a day bed and table & chairs, great place to start the day with breakfast, the only distraction might be the tiny birds or maybe a small gecko. The view is spectacular - palm trees, beach and sea, all a few steps from your room. If you are lounging on the beach you will be served a complimentary fruit skewer and in the afternoon an ice lolly (made from fruit puree - delicious). This is followed by afternoon tea served between 3.30 and 5.00. In between the staff will bring you drinks and food whatever you order. The staff are very friendly but do not expect express service (this is the Caribbean). The food in the restaurants is better than ever, particularly the Jetty Bar which I think is much better than a year ago. John Rogers and his team are doing a great job,. special mention to Michael Eutrope - Guest Services Manager. Very much hoping this team can stay together so the hotel has more continuity than in the past. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.
