The Carlisle Bay Antigua is a fantastic hotel from the moment you drive through the electric gates you know your somewhere special. The staff are all amazing from top to bottom polite, courteous and helpful just a few to name Larry the concierge top man, Jason, Benn and jade the bar staff who kept me well lubricated and Elliot the Gardner who took us on the rain forest hike with some amazing views and great knowledge. The hotel itself I found very clean bright and spacious as was the room with a lovely view of the bay. The beach itself was very clean and raked every morning and the sea very calm, some nice touches on the beach too like the towels already on the sun loungers which are very comfortable a small cooler box filled with iced water, iced towels fetched round to cool you down then fresh fruit kebabs or fruit juice all fetched round to you on a daily basis as is the afternoon tea and cakes all complementary. We also had spa treatments which were very good and professional if only a little expensive as was the food and drinks,we only had one meal at the hotel in the East restaurant which wasnâ€™t the best to be fair but the breakfast was very good. All in all a very nice place to stay with a good mix of people from young families to senior citizens and predominantly English.
