We came to Carlisle Bay with high expectations. We took great care and much thought to choose Carlisle Bay. A large part of that decision was based on their website.I DEFINITELY made the right decision! Upon arrival, a bridge led us over a Koi pond surrounded by Bougainvilla and right into the Great House reception. The designers were successful at blending Caribbean soul with modern sleek. First impressions are everything & Carlisle Bay made a magnificent first impression. Warm welcoming reception. Think crisp White sheets, azure sea with Tropical , lush garden walkways. Perfection! You know it is a great resort when you cant decide to stay in the room, or go outside! We did stay long enough to play with the luxurious Cappuccino Machine! (Funny how special little things are exciting!) It was great to have that in our room. Fresh espresso or cappuccino as soon as you wake! Beach - Perfect. Kayaked on the smooth, clear rolling waters each morning. Sand that is meticulously groomed and soft, surrounded by the mountains. Montserrat mysteriously looming on the horizon of the bay. It was perfect. Not to mention the fresh fruit kabobs & cool drinks delivered on the beach with a smile! Cuisine - Wonderful. Romantic setting overlooking the beach. Open air, clean and crisp.Great menu selection. Presentation -very artistic. Service was lacking a bit, but very friendly (remember that you are on island time). Spa - Sleek, calming and very professional. The massage was wonderful, rates very reasonable. I will tell you the only bad thing that I can say about Carlisle Bay Resort is that the dining experience is ruined by the amt of children. I highly recommend Carlisle Bay Resort! I would go back in a minute!
Spent the weekend kiting there and everything accommodation related was great. Clean, spacious, well set up little cottage. The bad. Went to dinner one night, buffet was all that was offered which is a shame - usually the restaurant is excellent and actually worth the price. Not this time. The food was mediocre cafeteria quality at best, and the price was outrageous. 130 USD for two plates of rice, beans, and some chicken wings. No alcoholic drinks, no service, just the most expensive rice plate on the island. Is what it is. But I felt that the price of dinner buffet should have been mentioned before the meal and not been a surprise after.
This has to be one of the best resorts I've vacationed at. If you like seclusion and exceptional service, this is the place to go. Every cottage has a spectacular view of the bay. It is definitely on my list of places to visit again.
This is a perfect getaway for a couple or small group, in a beautiful setting. No kids, quiet but there is always life at the bar if you want it. Excellent food and drinks, particularly considering it is all inclusive - no buffets here, and you get what you pay for.
