I have just returned from my 3rd trip to Beaches Turks and Caicos and what an amazing resort for families , couples, wedding groups and singles. Set on a magnificent stretch of powder white sand beach, enhancing the contrast of the gorgeous turquoise blue ocean packed with possibly the best marine life in the Caribbean , this certainly is a real playground for anyone looking for a true Luxury Included experience !
With 4 villages, the original Caribbean village with a truly authentic feel of the Caribbean, next we have the French village with its shuttered windows and French balconies ...rumour has it the U.S basketball player Michael Jordan took over a very large number of rooms in the French village, imagine ..you could end up sleeping in the very bed Michael Jordan slept in? More recently the Key West village was opened following on from the addition of the exquisite Italian village ..and yes I was lucky enough to stay in one of the stunning walk out family suites which would comfortably hold a family 6. With a separate bedroom for the children containing bunk beds and a trundle (pull out bed) an X box 360 , a flat screen TV and ample room to allow parents some privacy how cool is that?
Beaches Turks and Caicos boasts a choice of 16 restaurants, including a selection of great fine dining from Kimonos, a "fun" dining experience of show cooking with a chef that will entertain you whilst preparing your mouth watering stir fry before your very eyes, watch out though he may decide to toss a prawn your way to catch in your mouth ! You have other great choices including French ,Italian and Caribbean gourmet cuisine, or maybe Sushi or Seafood dining may tantalise your taste buds, if it is just a quick fix you need then there are pizzeria's, and fast food options including Bobby Dee's which is open 24 hours to enjoy burgers, wraps, salads and is a firm favourite with the late night party goers ...on their way back to their room or suite from the authentic Cricketers pub!
There is certainly something for everyone when it comes to dining at Beaches Turks and Caicos !
If you fancy some pampering then head to the Red Lane Spa to relax and enjoy a bit of indulgence from the wonderful therapists who will offer you an array of treatments from massage and facials using Dermalogica products to body wraps, manicures and pedicures...If you want to work off those extra lbs then Beaches can offer you a state of the art fitness centre , or maybe enrol into the many classes on offer!
What kids...oh my goodness where are the kids? Well I can certainly say your children will have a ball at Beaches Turks and Caicos....the Pirates Island water park, which is the largest water park in the Caribbean by the way, has a comprehensive array of any hotel water park with 9 slides, a lazy river, water cannons, and spray features and most exciting of all the ever popular surf simulator... all under the watchful eye of the lifeguards,my grand daughter loved the water park so much she would have moved her bed there ! How about the little ones? Beaches is renowned for its amazing kids clubs and of course the Sesame Street characters, what a great opportunity to dance with Zoe, or cook with Cookie Monster? All the favourites are there, Elmo, Grover, Bert and Ernie, Abacadabee, The Count ( a bit scary) and Super Grover! Once a week both the little kids and the big kids ...yes YOU can enjoy a fantastic parade , showcasing the entertainments team and of course the Sesame Street characters.
Teenagers have an array of great things to keep them occupied, including their very own night club..Club Liquid, where they can dance to the very latest sounds, have a few drinks ....but do not worry mum's and dad's , no alcohol allowed ! Another great innovation is Scratch DJ where kids can scratch records ...did not know records itched !! No seriously the kids love this fun room where DJ's will help them make music ...maybe not your kind of music, but they will cherish the experience.
At Sandals and Beaches hotels unlike any other hotel group world wide,you can dive for free up to twice a day if PADI certified , You will have access to the state of the art equipment, fully equipped top of the range Newton dive boats, if you have never dived before you can pay $80 to the resort, where you will be taken through the steps of learning to dive by one of the diving instructors, and if you like it..this qualifies you to dive once a day at the resort and allows you to dive at any other Sandals and Beaches resort for 1 year for free! For the little ones who really want to explore the fantastic marine life ..they will have a unique opportunity to partake in Bubblemaker, created for children from 8 years upwards to give it a go, they will be taught the basics of learning to dive, safety, and of course explore the great world of diving for themselves ..what a great idea !
