Just spent a wonderful two weeks at the lovely Carlisle Bay. Beautiful hotel with stunning, spacious suites decorated in colours of the ocean. Our suite was on the ground floor which meant you could step outside and be on the beach in two steps! We did encounter a number of small issues in the suite and whilst irritating were dealt...

We stayed at Carlisle Bay for my spouse's 30th birthday and based on that experience, I think we need to make this an annual tradition. From the moment you drive into the grounds, the amazing customer service begins. I'll start this tale off with the cold refreshing pineapple punch that is served as the staff checks you in.
