A small, authentic and warm destination in the Bahamas. The proprietors, Angie and Marty are on hand to make sure everything is as the guests requests. They are true professionals and operate a homey botique hotel with fine Bahamian crusine.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Carriearl for business. I was full of doubt and hesitant at first but as I entered the Carriearl I was transported back to a simpler more pleasant time. Time when people spoke to one another, had detailed conversations and laughed. A time when you can take a deep breath, kick your...

I had the chance to visit Carriearl with some friends today and it was just amazing. The location and amenities are superb and the hosts catered for our every need. The fresh water pool was a pleasant surprise and the private beach just a minute's walk away. Can't wait to visit again!

This establishment exceeded our expectation for an out island meal. I must say that in 2 years traveling in the bahamas, we have had a number of great meals, but this was the best. Generous portions, perfectly cooked, served in an amazing setting. They have a wide selection of drinks available, a large & interesting menu and a relaxing atmosphere....

My husband Michael and I could not have wished for a better experience. Marty and Angie attended to our every need. My dietary restrictions were not a problem at all for them.

We came to Carriearl for the last few days of a three week trip to The Bahamas for a little bit (more) of luxury and 'chilling''- we couldn't have made a better choice! Our room, 'Rooster' was bright, spacious, large, beautifully furnished with a very comfortable bed and with its own patio just by the pool. The pool itself is...

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
