This resort, on 22 manicured acres adjoining Princess Alexandra National Park and fronting the famed 12-mile Grace Bay beach, has plantation-style suites with island views from the wraparound terraces, and mixes family-friendly fun with an upscale vibe. All 143 rooms, from studios to four-bedroom suites, have marble floors, four-poster beds draped in white, and private terraces with unbeatable seascapes, while fully equipped kitchens make fixing breakfasts and snacks easy—though first-rate dining is a hallmark of the resort. Near the beach, guests can enjoy private cabanas where attendants are always on hand. And a sumptuous, full-service spa spoils those looking to get away from the world. But families are well-served here, too. Youngsters can escape their embarrassing parents at the kids camp and build sand castles, go snorkeling under supervision or even learn to sail with expert instructors. All guests can dive into the slew of water sports available on-site: you might find your inner Jacques Cousteau in a scuba class, or take a surf lesson and discover a previously unknown talent. For an additional fee, Seven Stars guests are also welcome to play golf at the Provo Club, a 6,705-yard course that’s considered one of the best in the Caribbean.
In the Area
Some of the best fishing in the area can be found off Turks and Caicos, known as the blue marlin capital of the Caribbean. Providenciales also offers some of the best bonefishing in the world. The relatively pristine waters are great for aspiring anglers and expert fishermen alike. Boats carry up to two guests, plus the captain, for half- and full-day excursions. If you rather stay onshore, you can learn about the flora and fauna of Turks and Caicos right across from the Children’s Park at the National Environmental Center. The exhibits are fun and the staff can answer some of the trickier questions that kids come up with. It’s free and open daily. But if you’re here for romance, trotting along the beach on horseback is one of the best ways to take in the backdrop of white sand and turquoise water. Riders of all skill levels can participate, and long pants are strongly suggested.
How to Get There
Just spent a week at Seven Seas Resort in Turks & Caicos. My wife and I were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. Amazing, fantastic are ways to describe this place. Sitting on Grace Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The resort is beautiful! Suites are beautifully decorated and spacious. The service is impeccable. This place is Disney on steroids! Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. The staff will set up your beach or pool chairs with resort logo branded towel covers over the lounge chairs plus beach towels. Fresh fruit kabobs passed out at 3:00 and smoothlies at 4:00. Bar service at the pool and beach. Turn down service includes lavender spray for your linens, cloth foot Matt on each side of bed and all dishes washed in dishwasher. All rooms have view of the ocean and all windows have full length remote control black out shades.
Two tips: Currently until 2021, Ritz Carlton is building a resort next door. Be sure to specify that you do not want a room on that side unless you are ok with it. Also, there are first floor suites that have extra large patios. If you want a balcony, you need to indicate that when making your reservation.
The Deck is a beachside outdoor restaurant and bar that has a great view of the beach. The adult pool has a deck next to the beach with lounge chairs. Great place to be by the pool and beach.
Seven Restaurant on the resort is fantastic. Great service and food was exceptional. The daily included breakfast buffet with omelet station is unbelievable. This is not a continental breakfast. It is a full breakfast menu every day of the week.
All in all our stay was amazing, the beach was beautiful, and the whole island was very proud of their home and super friendly. We plan to return!
We stayed here last year this same time of year and weren’t bothered by the Ritz Carlton being built next door, but this year, due to the stage of construction, it really wasn’t enjoyable at all. The noise is unbearable in our room, on the balcony, at the adult only pool and on that side of the beach. The “beep beep beep” noise of construction vehicles drove me crazy. It started very early in the morning and they were still working when we walked the beach at 6:15 tonight to go to Bay Bistro. Be prepared for 12 hours per day of nothing but noise as they are making the most of the daylight hours. It’s really not relaxing here so I’m very disappointed In our trip this time. I would have asked for a change of room but that wouldn’t have solved the constant noise while trying to enjoy the pools here, much worse at adult only “quiet” pool than main pool but you could hear it at both.
I will do a separate review for the Deck restaurant but suffice to say the servers are not attentive, do not smile, and do the minimum required if that - we were asked what type of water we wanted, then never brought water. Our food was brought out and left sitting on a tray getting cold for several minutes with our server nowhere to be found.
For the positives and the reason I’m giving a “2” rather than a “1”, the beach was very nice, the rooms are well-equipped, and housekeeping does a great job! The breakfast buffet is of a good quality with an adequate selection.
Overall, I wouldn’t book here until the construction is done although that could be over a year from now. I understand there is a third building still to go up and they are not that far along on the first two buildings.
At Seven Stars you will hate to leave and look forward to when you can return. Service is impeccable as is the beautiful beach it is on. Luxurious rooms and fantastic atmosphere. First time to Turks and Caicos and can't wait to go back. Wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.
