Certificate of Excellence
'Carriearl' is a place to retreat from the world, to find the kind of tranquility no one can buy and to stay in a Hotel that's instantly your home. You will experience the almost mystical energy that you can only find in the Out Islands of the Bahamas. The impossibly clear waters and endless beach are only for those who have, by some serendipity, discovered this little piece of Paradise. A 20 minute flight from Nassau and just over an hours flight from Florida, it is a perfect destination for the traveler who is looking for somewhere to chill and relax. There are four well-designed bedrooms, a beautiful fresh water pool, a terrific Restaurant and Bar (one with a great Rum selection) and a short stroll to one of the Island's stunning, deserted beaches. Angie and Marty are your hosts and with their wonderful staff have made Carriearl the epicenter of the Island, and Dronzi's Driftwood Bar is always full of travelers and locals, and Sunday Brunch with Chef Marty-a social requirement!
