While the resort is officially named Beaches Resort Villages and Spa I prefer to just call it Beaches Turks and Caicos, or as the kids say when they see any photos from it “There’s that fun place mama, I want to go back!“. We stayed here during our recent trip to Turks & Caicos for the Social Media on the Sand conference and had a wonderful time. It was our only all-inclusive experience, after our trip to Cabo San Lucas.
The vibe at the resort is very happy. It should be, because we’d regularly pass Sesame Street characters while walking around. One morning we even attended a Character Breakfast where the characters would come to your table while you ate. Søren didn’t eat much, but loved the characters. Aiden didn’t care for it but he’s a little beyond the demographic. The staff is amazingly helpful. A few times when we had a hard time finding our way around (it’s really large), the staff offered to personally walk us to our destination.
The grounds are immaculately kept, and every single plant is placed with intention. During a horticulture tour, I learned that all of the plants are imported, and then regrown from seed to populate the resort’s landscaping.
Being poolside is always one of our favorite things to do, and we found refuge in the French Village pool area. It was quiet and the pool area was beautifully done.
The resort boasts 21 restaurants scattered about the grounds. We only made reservations for one dinner, and the rest of the time we worked around our own schedule. We had everything from hamburgers at a retro-style diner, to a coursed meal at a nicer seafood place and it was all wonderful. The one thing that did surprise me was that the resort didn’t offer room service. You could, however, get food from any restaurant to bring back to your room on your own.
Part of our stay was sponsored by Beaches Resort Villages and Spa in Turks and Caicos as part of our Social Media on the Sands trip. All thoughts are my own. Thank you for helping to support the sponsors that make life here a little sweeter.
