About Carlisle Bay

This hotel has rave reviews on everything from the food quality and 'smoothie of the day' to the attentive staff service, which included little touches like fresh fruit skewers delivered to the beach mid morning, luxury afternoon teas and fresh filtered water coolers between the sun loungers.

The hotel seems popular with couples and families alike, with some sensitive channelling of areas for families from adults only on the beach and the rooms are spacious and very well equipped.  There is an onsite creche, which reviews very well, offering families with young children a chance to enjoy some relaxing time too. 

It would seem this resort has thought of pretty much everything you would want for a luxurious yet laid back vacation.

How to choose the right resort?

Hotel Location

It's not a great idea to situate yourself purely based on location to Nelsons Dockyard and Shirley heights as the size of Antigua allows you full access to the islands nightlife and attractions anyway. Instead focus on choosing the right resort for your group and budget.

But if you still want to be located in a specific spot then we have the following links that show you the hotels and touristic points of interest:
North, North East, East, South East, South, South West, West, North West 

Out of Season Reason

Also out of season it will be quiet no matter where you go with the exception that some loactions seem to hold more bars and restaurants that stay open longer. English Harbour tends to slow down out of season more than say the South West or North West. That could be your thing ! Just be ready to disengage from time and enjoy.
