Beach House – All-inclusive
What We Love
- Relaxing on the balcony of an Oceanfront Suite at sunset, cocktail in hand
- The long list of activities, including kayaking and kiteboarding available on Grace Bay beach
- Going for a romantic beach picnic with food prepared by the resort
What To Know
- Some ground-floor rooms are close to the pool – if you want total privacy opt for a room on the upper floors
- The pool isn’t huge, but if you want more space to swim, the sea is just a steps away
- Free WiFi
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site
Residing on a private two-acre site overlooking the gentle curve of Grace Bay, this 21-suite property on the Turks and Caicos island of Providenciales (better known locally as Provo) is perfect for beach lovers looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation. A deck leads from the turquoise sea past prickly grass dunes to the hotel, which has a low, three-story plantation-style façade, ringed with wooden balconies and tinged with colors of grey and sand, that blends seamlessly into the surrounding scenery.
Bed and Bath
At more than 1,000 square feet, the 21 suites here feel more like spacious apartments than hotel rooms. Beach-chic decor includes modern cane and bamboo furniture, whitewashed cupboards, barefoot-friendly tiled flooring, soothing light blue walls and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the sea. Well-equipped kitchenettes (including breakfast bar, large prep area, and fridge) make it easy for guests to make their own meals for an alfresco dinner on the private terrace. Families will love the downstairs suites, which are the most convenient for beach or pool, while couples, honeymooners and folks seeking a tad more privacy should opt for second- or third-floor corner suites.
Drinks, light snacks and appetizers are available at the pool bar throughout the day. Guests can also opt to retire to their “pampering pod” — a two-bed beach unit linked by table and parasol – for a private meal followed by a massage. If you’re feeling more active, the Beach House offers water sports including kayak rentals and snorkeling, or set out in the resort’s own catamaran to explore the coastline’s coves. When the sun sets, visit the Beach House Movement restaurant for dinner and try the delicious menu of tapas and fusion dishes using fresh local ingredients.
How to Get There
I did a lot of research before picking this hotel for my 40th birthday trip with my husband. I read so much about the service, and staff and food, and was looking forward to it.
- the beach is gorgeous! Exceeded all the pictures, the sand was soft, the water clear, good snorkeling walking distance. We walked far up and down the beach and think that the Beach House's beach is the best - spread out chairs, wider beach, no coral in the swimming area.
- the beach chairs were comfortable, and it was great to have them reserved (though ours were in the front row, I would have been disappointed to have a second row chair for the week)
- the rooms were huge. We got a 1 bedroom beach view and loved it. The bed was comfy, the porch was huge - with a daybed that was perfect for naps -and it was nice to have a fridge and microwave to reheat microwave
- no kids and small size made it very relaxing and quiet. I loved being able to lay on the beach and just hear the waves almost any time of day
- loved having beer, soda and water stocked. Would have loved it even more if they kept the wine stocked - especially once they saw that's what I was drinking all week
- We got such a weird tour after checking in. I am not lying - the girl (maybe it was her first day) highlighted the pad of paper and pen "In case you need to write anything down"! She didn't show us much of the resort and was very awkward
- The food at the restaurant was hit or miss. Some things were great, some were terrible. The selection was very limited, with the same breakfast and dinner options each day. Since I don't eat seafood, I had very limited choices for dinner.
- drinks were standard all-inclusive; cheap rum, watered down juices, very sweet. Often they didn't have gin or vodka, so we couldn't get a 'gin and tonic' etc. So I switched to white wine - the house was eh, but better than the syrupy stuff, which caused problems because apparently it was hard to find on the property?!
- we took the shuttle to the Alexandria one day, it was way bigger with far more food options. the food was better, though could have been just because it was something different!
- There was snorkeling and kayaks that were easy to access. Often times there was only one guy working though, so kobycat (or whatever the sail boat thing is called) wasn't available to go out. We did go out one day and it was awesome, but somehow I felt like it was him doing a favor for us - a special treat.
- When we arrived, the front desk lady actually told us that Blue Haven was better and we'd want to go over there for meals. Umm....ok, thanks for the welcome?
- It regularly took 20-40 minutes to get a drink or food at the beach.... after waiting that long after putting up the flag for someone to come over.
- Service at the restaurant wasn't any better. First breakfast I ordered straight from the menu: Eggs, toast and baked beans. They brought out my husbands omelet and then told me at that point they didn't have any beans, what did I want. So then I had to wait again, while his omelet got cold, for my second choice.
Overall, I was disappointed. Beyond the beach, which I did LOVE, and the peace and quiet, I don't think the Beach House was a good deal. Perhaps all the staff raved about in other reviews were on vacation, maybe the chef was having a bad week, I don't know - but overall it didn't meet our expectations, particularly given the cost.
First time to Turks&Cacais but hopefully not the last. Best all-inclusive adults only resort ever—no detail was left out in quality or service. Gourmet dinners, best cheeseburger in paradise for lunch, beautiful beach & water, twice daily maid service, assigned, reserved beach lounge chairs, beverage & food service on the beach, nothing to do but relax, eat, enjoy the beach & ocean & relax, relax, relax!
Beach House was amazing ….AC worked well - Spacious big rooms, customer service was outstanding, food and drinks were plentiful and was excellent, We had a 3rd floor Oceanview which was absolutely wonderful! We spent time at the two other sister resorts which we would highly recommend as well. Our vacation was the best and no doubt we will be returning to this resort as soon as we can.. Big thank to Dwayne, James (Server) Charlie, Lakenya, Latoya and many more …. You made everything so perfect
We were really looking forward to our stay here but we were disappointed overall.
The facility was great - very large, clean, rooms - well attended.
It was wonderful to have a reserved comfortable lounge chair and umbrella so close to the water. Great view. Randall was great fun and provided good service.
The food was good but I expected better quality and more choices for the price you pay. Presentation was good. There was a paella night and that was it — no other themed nights as the website said. Maybe they just provide one per week. No lobster on the beach. In fact, no lobster at all that I recall. Do not order the steaks! Two of us ordered steak and it was inedible. The hostess explained they are strip steaks - we know what strip steaks are being from Texas but the grade was terrible. Full of grizzle.
That night the service was also horrible. It must have been the server’s first day. He said they ran out of tequila (?) and they ran out of bourbon and scotch. Then the hostess said they had it and got it from the beach bar. Most everyone else was getting their food and 2 hours later we were still waiting. It turns out they had lost our order. It was a horrible night. The management did try to offer an apology with bottles of liquor and free massages which was appreciated.
I understand island time but overall service was beyond slow.
There were a couple “premium” alcohol choices but not a large selection and they kept running out. The house wine was also not very good. You had to pay for better quality wine by the bottle.
We saw the garden but were never offered a salad from it. In fact, there were no salads on the menu most nights.
The beach restaurant had very good food - but they ran out of coleslaw. They also ran out of beans but then somehow found them. ??
We took the shuttle to Blue Haven for one of our group’s birthday and again was disappointed only to find a buffet of pretty average choices. They did bring a cake, sparkler and sang happy birthday which was very much appreciated.
The band was wonderful! We got to see them at two different hotels
One restaurant manager came out one morning when the omelet was cold, apologized and made another but we never saw a manager on duty to discuss these issues with. The hostess was our main point of contact and she tried to remedy the situation.
While we really enjoyed the quietness and relaxation of this boutique hotel, we will not be going back.
My husband took me on a surprise vacation to Turks and Caicos for my 50th birthday. He chose The Beach House on Grace Bay and he definitely made the right choice. From the moment that we arrived at the front desk, we were greeted by Lakenya. Charles then showed us the property and brought us to the beach restaurant for lunch. The staff, food, drinks and beach were fabulous. Beautiful private beach and smooth sand. Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the peaceful ocean. When we arrived to our room, we had a bottle of delicious red wine, chocolates, fruit and lovely flowers. Love the theme, "where the rooms have no numbers". Our room was named Driftwood. Another nice touch was the turn down night service with the man in charge, Carlton and the ladies who always left a wonderful postcard and saying on bedside stand along with a water.
Enjoyed having our own private beach chairs and great bar and food services at the beach by Randell.
We enjoyed riding the bikes that they provided into town and also to the sister resort for breakfast..
We had a romantice beach dinner and DeWayne waited on us. He was so pleasant and interesting to talk to. You do need to book this well in advance.
We both enjoyed a wonderful massage in the house located on the beach.
Another wonderful part of the resort was my new friend, Toby who is a hurricane Irma rescue dog that now lives at the Beach House. He goes to the beach every day with Jamal and at night has his own house near the front desk. I played with him every day and took him for nice beach walks. Then at night would bring him meat scraps after dinner. He is such a great dog and has the best life!
I have to give a BIG shout out to my buddy Jamal who is the sports activity person. He is so knowledgeable and plesant. He took my husband, Toby and I out on the Catamaran so we could look for sand dollars.
Would also like to thank Latoya and Lakenya the lovely girls at the front desk and DeWayne for their hospitality.
Loved the different soup shooters before dinner and the different food choices.
In closing, my husband and I have been to many Caribbean isalnds and all-inclusive resorts but the Beach House goes way above and beyond and ensures your vacation is spectacular.
