We booked our holiday through Trailfinders as a wedding package and our whole experience at Carlisle Bay was truly amazing and exceptional. We were greeted at the airport and whizzed through customs as a VIP and were soon on our way to the resort. Upon arrival we were greeted with cold towels and a cold drink. This was greatly appreciated after many hours travelling and it is the attention to detail that was to continue throughout our stay with every need catered for. The accommodation in a garden suite was fantastic and extremely generous in size but we were blown away by the view from our balcony. Gorgeous blue sky, blue sea, clean sand and swaying palm trees. We were on an all inclusive basis and every meal was excellent in every one of the restaurants we chose to eat in. All the waiting staff were very attentive as were every other member of staff from the cleaners to the receptionists - so friendly and happy to help in any way. A very special thanks goes to our wedding planner Jodie. She truly took care of everything so all we had to do on the day was get ready on time! Special thanks also goes to our photographers who made the session great fun. We were to have a private dinner on the beach but due to the weather it was moved indoors to the yoga pavilion which was no less special as it was decorated with candles and flower petals. We were served by Frederick who was an excellent waiter with a great personality and he made our special evening even more memorable. We can’t thank everyone enough for their part in creating such special memories and we can’t wait to return for our anniversary.
We found Carlisle Bay to be a charming and beautiful spot for a relaxing and low-key beach vacation, with terrific food (great cooking across the resort, and lots options) and great rooms that are just steps from the beautiful beach. But the best part was the truly exceptional service from staff that were fun, friendly and wonderful at what they do (special shout-outs to Casmeir, Derika, Toyanne, Michelle and so many others for making us feel right at home and taking such good care of us). Clearly Carlisle Bay has done an excellent job recruiting the very best talent, which makes all the difference. Can’t wait to come back.
Beautiful resort on a lovely stretch of beach. We'd previously stayed at another resort in Antigua that we'd loved but were keen to try another part of the island and liked the idea of a beachfront villa room. Great amenities and lovely to be right on the water. Great All Inclusive offering with fabulous restaurant and food selections for all, including me who was vegan. Everything was as described and standard in resort was high. Stayed at many resorts all over the Caribbean but found staff here to be very well trained and friendly. Children had an amazing time - staff were kind and engaging. Kid's club was a hit despite the heat! Comfortable beds, great food, excellent customer service, stunning location. Perfect family holiday. Will return.
