We had an absolutely amazing stay at Carriearl and we cannot wait to visit again. We arrived at the Great Harbour Cay Marina after a full day at sea and from the moment our boat pulled up to the dock, the owners of Carriearl made us feel completely taken care of and looked after. Marty, the owner, was waiting for...

This fabulously gorgeous location is far beyond any expectation. The rooms are beautifully immaculate. The lounge and dining areas are roomy and wonderfully decorated in tropical decor. The full bar is definitely a plus. the food is delish! The pool is absolutely gorgeous and the beach is to die for. White powder and sparkling blue water. If I could find...

This is a great place to stay and eat at, but even if you're not staying here, just coming over for dining and drinks are very welcome.

Oh my. We have been to Great Harbor a few times and enjoyed it greatly BUT; I didn't know about the Carriearl! We drove past it a few times while out exploring the island but didn't realize it had a restaurant. We heard about Sunday brunch and tired it out. FABULOUS!!!!!! The food, the service, the view, the ambiance were...

Hi Tokkie and Gail, It is funny that so many visitors to Great Harbour Cay miss eating or staying with us, because they do not know we are here! I think it must be because the outside is quite unassuming, so the inside is a big surprise. We are a bit of a hidden 'gem'!!! We do have a few...

Marty and Angie are so accommodating , we arrived at 8 pm without reservations to a pack house. They went above and beyond to accommodate us and to ensure we received our food as quickly as possible. The wait was worth it because The food was exceptional, it was cooked to perfection!! The reef and beef is a must have☺️.

We are so glad that you came for dinner, and that we managed to look after you. It is not always easy to fit guests in when we have a really busy night, which is why Reservations really help!!!!

This was the perfect location for our desired "low key, high class" vacation. Marty and Angie are lovely, the food was good, drinks were strong and coffee was out of this world.

What a lovely comment about us. Sometimes it is difficult to describe a vacation at 'Carriearl' and I think that "low key, high class" is perfect for what we are trying to achieve, and, yes, we are still a bit of a 'secret'!!! So thank you very much. I am so glad that you enjoyed staying in 'Rooster'- everyone's favourite...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carriearl is your antidote to workaday worries, but is only a 20 minute flight from Nassau, and a hour flight from Miami. From the moment you walk in the door you will feel at home. With one of Dronzi's famous Rum Punches in your hand, you will just want to chill round our beautiful freshwater swimming pool and walk our amazing beach, where the only footprints you will see are your own! Owned by 2 'Brits', Angie and Marty, our British Hospitality is reflected in our attention to detail and wonderful International Cuisine. We have a 'Smart, Casual' dress code in the evenings, and we do ask Gentlemen to remove their caps please. ... more   less
