Getaway at Carville Bay
Everyone made you feel like a member of the family. It was off season so not crowded. Beach was great. Quiet water and the occasional rain wasn’t a bother. I would skip St John. English Harbor is beautiful and historic. Already planning for return next year

Great Stay... with some challenges
We loved our stay at the Carlisle Bay and would definitely recommend it however there are some pros and cons worth noting. I find this is a 4* , not a 5* resort in terms of luxury and amenities. Pros: - Staff were amazing and so friendly. Cannot emphasize this enough - Beach is beautiful and isolated so feels very quiet even when the hotel is full - Food at all the restaurants was extremely good, East being our favorite - Location is quite good and easy to travel to other parts of the island Cons: - Restaurants are not all open for dinner so it's important to do your research. Some nights you are limited to Jetty Grill and Indigo which have similar menus. East was absolutely the best. - Reservations - I would check your reservations with the restaurants. All 4 nights we had email confirmation that we had bookings but the restaurants had no records of this. Luckily staff was great and able to accommodate. - Beach... this is the biggest for me. We had to set an alarm and get up at 6:45AM on our "relaxing" vacation just to get a beach chair. And we definitely weren't the first people out there. This is a messed up system and definitely needs to be repaired. You shouldn't have to get up at sunrise, just to leave a book on a chair until after breakfast. It really ruined our opinion of the resort that they let this happen and encourage it.

Relaxing stay
A beautiful secluded bay! The hotel was great - it is very family friendly so if you’re looking for a romantic getaway maybe not the best option. Breakfast buffet was good athough the menu never changed.

You'll fall in love again...
My partner and I were looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway for my birthday. Carlisle was exactly that and more. From the valet parking, to being greeted with a wet towel to clean our hands, and the refeshing cold drinks, it truly was a welcome to remember. The rooms were spacious, very clean and cozy. The food was amazing and the best part was the beach. The views were like heaven on earth. Staff amongst the hotel were very pleasant and very accommodating. Can't forgot to mention the tranquil spa...after my treatments I left feeling relaxed, and like a whole new women😊. We would most definitely recommend Carlisle Bay Resort if your looking for tranquillity and relaxation. Looking forward to booking again in the Spring.

Excellent But need better food
The hotel room, facilities and employees excellent. Even that the hotel is to "rest" the bar should be open later not until 11pm. Need some change with the food. I didn't like it.

Happy to come back again
We have stayed at Carlisle Bay many times. We loved it. Our only complaints were lack of choice and strange timings in bars and restaurants.
