Set on the northeastern tip of Providenciales away from famed Grace Bay, Blue Haven Resort’s sugar-sand beach fronts calm azure waters and is adjacent to the property’s eponymous marina. One- two- and three-bedroom suites are contemporary and airy and feature kitchens with cherry wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Head outside to enjoy the infinity edge pool (complete with a swim-up bar) or lounge with a good read in one the hammocks strung between two palm trees. Active types will enjoy the volleyball, beach tennis and horseshoes courts, while those looking for a lively happy hour scene (with killer drink specials) should make a beeline to SALT Bar & Grill. Also located onsite is a spa and Fire & Ice Restaurant, which serves contemporary Caribbean fare.
In the Area
Swing your clubs at the Provo Golf Club, the challenging and beautifully landscaped course is the only one in Turks and Caicos (look out for flamingos in the lakes). Hungry? Hit Da Conch Shack, which, while a bit on the touristy side, is a must for mollusk-lovers with such offerings as conch salad, conch fritters, conch chowder and more. Or, ditch your pool lounger and trot along Long Bay beach on horseback; it’s one of the best ways to take in the backdrop of white sand and turquoise water. Riders of all skill levels can participate; long pants are strongly suggested.
How to Get There
Strongly recommend the Blue Haven resort. Small resort so the service was impeccable. Small quiet beach. We didn't feel lost in the crowd. They have 2 larger sister properties on Grace Bay you can visit for the day. The staff all super friendly and helpful, the food was great, and everyone seemed to actually enjoy being there.
The pastry chef is a brilliant chocoholic (a man after my own heart).
My daughter has strong allergies, some of us were vegetarian, some were just picky eaters [!] and absolutely all of us were accommodated with grace and care.
The bartender at the pool, the staff on the beach, the staff/chefs at the restaurants, the cleaning crew, the kids club staff, all impeccable. I've never felt so welcomed at a resort. My friends all agreed it was the pampering.
Can't recommend this place enough!
We stayed in a really spacious 2br villa.
The cruise to Iguana island seems pretty standard for all tourists. Hotel booked it for us - very reasonable rate. Conch salad, rum punch, snorkeling. They picked us up at the marina at the hotel and dropped us back 10 feet from the dining room. Mad easy!
Only con for some pple may be the location [edge of the island w/ a small beach and a marina]. We liked it b/c it was small and quiet.
I GAVE 1 STAR AS THERE WAS NONE LOWER. As seasoned travelers we arrived to the resort, the first thing I noticed is the man made beach and the channel of the marina directly in front of the hotel. We were not given a tour of the facility or what was available but asked for a credit card for incidentals. We had a room facing the canal with a porch door that would not open to access the beach. We were never approached for beverages and had to go to the bar for less than quality sloppily put together food with a cook who drinks all day, believes he is the cats meow and has no organizational skills. The fixed menu was marginal, the dining room manager could not get out of her own way, in a resort less than 1/3 full they could not clear tables to seat people, sent you to the bar to find no vodka, no red wine or pina collada, or the bar tender as at dinner they had 1 on and no glasses, he was running to get everything, this meant no one including those in the dining room got served, they never came to get us to be seated. We went back and had to wait with at least 15 tables empty to be seated. I asked a simple question about the menu and the waitress who had been there over a year could not answer the question. Dishes were wished away before you finished as they needed them for other guests. The staff POORLY trained if at all. The rooms although large were dark, they did not have even the simplest necessities like dish soap or dish washing liquid, no kitchen towels. No coffee available or cups at dinner. No bowls in the morning for cereal, or plates or glasses. I spoke to the dining room manager and told her I was going to speak to the general manager if she wanted to be in attendance. I asked at the front desk to speak to the general manager and was told he was not available, I told the front desk person we were there for two weeks would he please reach out to me. I asked for one of his cards and she said she did not have any, I asked what his name was and she responded she was the face of the resort and could she help me, I again asked for the name of the general manager upon which she wrote the name of Mr. Nibel down, I reiterated I wished to speak to him, hearing NOTHING on the third day we went searching for another resort as it went from bad to worse. We found a resort and went back immediately to pack and leave and then and only then did a man with an untucked shirt approached and introduced himself as the general manager. WOW. I had made a three page list of issues I discussed with him, including names, days, times and we were off and salvaged our 12k vacation. We own and operate 18 restaurants in the US and customer service, food service and management is very familiar to us. If the owner- holding company does not intervene this resort will whirl down the toilet. None of the employees wanted to make eye contact for fear you would ask something of them. We also understand how difficult it is to get quality help. Regardless, at almost $900 a night, things should have been very very different.
How can anyone be upset with paradise?
From the moment we arrived on a Sunday and were met by a porter and the hotel concierge, as we got out of our taxi, we were pampered. They had our room ready to go and within 15 minutes of arriving we were changed and walking to the beach.
The views are amazing!
A few strengths of the resort. The housekeeping... my god they clean better than any hotel staff I’ve ever encountered.
Elvis the pool side chef is amazing, he radiates pure joy as he cooks
Elle at Fire and Ice, she exudes professionalism and drive, to the management at Blue Haven, this lady is a winner, keep her, promote her!
Ruben, during the week he was a bartender, a waiter, a pool side guy... no matter what he hustled and got us service fast!
The ONLY slight complaint I had was the amount of time it takes to get food out. It didn’t matter if it was busy or not, count on dinner taking a minimum of 90 minutes with the entree taking a minimum of 60 minutes to arrive. The food when it does arrive is outstanding. The wait staff are all hard working and quick to refill a wine glass as you wait.
From the moment we entered Blue Haven resort we knew we had reached paradise. Upon arrival Rhonda greeted us and offered us a rum punch or water after our long day of travel that was wonderful. Our room was beautiful with a full kitchen and huge patio area with a view of the ocean. We were there celebrating my 40th birthday and they made a special cake and sang to me at dinner. The resort restaurant had excellent food. They had the same menu every night and offered a nightly dinner special. We loved our service from Eddie and Elle! The beach area was beautiful and well kept.
We liked being at a resort where the beach was private so that no one could solicit sales of their goods to us. We spent several days lounging on the beach and hanging out in the swim up pool bar. Service from Scott and Elvis there was the best!
Only advice to make the resort better would be to have a bigger selection of goods to choose from in the Market. We went there in search of hand lotion and they had none. We also were looking for late night snacks of crackers, cheese etc and they didn’t have anything snacky we could find other than chips.
What a hidden gem in the middle of Turks and Caicos. The Blue Haven Resort is a luxury resort, spacious, and have ocean/beach view rooms. The staff is very professional, pleasant, helpful and is just an awesome group of people. The rooms are spacious, the food is great and the dinning area is like a large outdoor cabana near the beach, what a sight. The bed is comfortable and housekeeping is on point. The staff was aware that it was our wedding anniversary and they went all out to make our stay wonderful and memorable. We love Blue Haven and will come back again, again and again.
