We found this gem of a place while searching the web from the airport....what a wonderful surprise! We were welcomed by the owner's Feona's son Colin his lovely wife and cute little grandson CJ.....the location is so beautiful and picturesque......a private beach with a view of the mountains and Falmouth harbour so fantastic....we highly recommend....we will be back.
So many good things I can't begin to express how incredible it was... Staff is equal to a 5 star hotel... They upgraded our room free of charge... They showed us over the marina, etc etc etc I mean their attentions to us are endless... Only problem was wifi was down but they are working on fixing it... So I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are staying in Antigua. Just remember to rent a car so you can explore the island easier...

I was at the Carlisle Bay about 3 weeks ago and am sadly just getting the time to write a review now. Too bad the great relaxation I felt at the Carlisle Bay didn’t last a long time since it was a wonderful experience. I had made a last minute booking to the resort for some much needed R&R and got exactly that. Simply put, the resort is extremely relaxing……gorgeous bay, beautiful beach, OUTSTANDING service, caring staff, delicious food, luxurious room (I stayed in an Ocean view room on the 3rd floor which had a wonderful view). From the second you arrive in the serene lobby area (which is lovely because it does not have that normal industrial hotel lobby feel), you are treated to a great experience. It is clear that they try to improve all aspects of your stay and strive to keep the resort at a very high standard. I had traveled on my own, and felt very safe and well taken care of by an attentive staff (I miss breakfast on the balcony!). I had booked the tennis week and was thoroughly impressed with the tennis coach Ken. He is a great trainer!! The tennis week came with a massage which was fine. The spa area needs soft background music or such since the outside noise can be heard in the massage room. Nevertheless, I would still give the Carlisle Bay a 5. It truly was a relaxing and beautiful resort!
Suite Serenade is a 2 story, 4 unit, furnished apartment building that is not in St. John's and is not on any beach. It is a bit hard to find since the unit is not marked, road signage is optional in Antigua, and most people do not know the place by the name 'Suite Serenade.' The neighborhood is upscale residential though somewhat rural. The building seems almost new and the 2 bedroom apartment is clean, no bugs, has a dish washer, laundry, microwave, TV service, security system, etc. Visitors definitely need a car since there are no beaches, food stores, restaurants, etc. in short walking distance.
The place worked for me. We were the first visitors in about a year though there were long-term residents upstairs. A few kinks need to be ironed out. We were left completely on our own but with a cell number to contact the managers. The cleaning lady comes on Wednesdays. I recommend Suite Serenade and would return again.

Hotel itself is a little tired but this is more than made up for by location, staff who can't do enough for you and fantastic food. This has been our 3rd stay in as many months and never disappointed. Will definitely go again for a relaxing weekend away and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Staff is far beyond any other resort ever stayed at. Owner pays great attention to your needs and requirements. Beach is the cleanest ever been too. Food is second to none,not your typical resort food. Rooms extra clean compared to other resorts we have been too. From the time you are picked up at the airport to the time you are returned everyone is focused on your desires. Have been here twice and will return many more times.
