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
Best massage I’ve ever had! I had two massages with Yna during our stay and I have been carrying two large knots between my shoulder blades from work stress for a year. First visit she worked on them, and suggested I don’t book any more deep tissue massages because that wasn’t what I needed. She told me to book something with stretching in it and that is what I booked for 80 minutes the next visit. I barely have knots there anymore and I had been to several 4 seasons spas in the time I had these knots. Only Yna was able to help me feel more aligned, break up the knots which was contributing to more stress that I was scarring the muscle from them not gliding correctly. I’ve never had someone do as unique and as beneficial of a massage as the ones I had from her. I wish I didn’t have to travel all the way to T&C to get another massage from her. Best masseuse I’ve had.
I spent six night at Seven Stars for my honeymoon in June. When we arrived, the power was off and we were in a room with oppressive heat until it came on. When I spoke with management, they said they were probably giving a restaurant credit and perhaps $500. When I checked out, they said, in retrospect, that was only for the people who suffered the night before without A/C and power.
The second issue with management is that 3-4 months before out visit, I had requested a higher room (we booked ocean front, 1,900 s.f. and paid $900 a night for the room), but I was told to make the request when we arrived. Upon arrival, we were on the third floor (seven floors) and were told that we would not get a higher room, with no explanation (remember this is June which is the start of the slower season and I learned from one of the apartment owners that I could easily be moved). The other issue is that in the video, the oceanfront room has a full bath and a half bath--the half bath was locked from our use. Once again, I spoke with management and they basically said too bad. The second day I encounter an owner, Dr. _____, who I think spoke with management, who then offered a different room. My wife did not want to go through the hassle of moving since all our clothes and food items were already unpacked. Management's insensitivity to our situation was appalling.
The rest of the staff at Seven Stars were amazing and wonderful people. The breakfast was great, and the property is stunning. At $900 a night, with not even close to a fully booked resort, how hard would it be to accommodate our modest request. I think the room being locked was a kind of bait and switch--here's what you get, but wait, it's not really accurate. When I checked out my question about compensation was also met with disregard and dismissal. Really?? I love being able to warn other travels--beware management at Seven Stars.
Despite the trip being plagued by power outage for 36 hours and intermittent rain showers....our visit to Seven Stars was exceptional. Facilities and amenities were “ok to good”, but the overall friendliness and attentiveness of the staff was what made it great.
Food and service at on site restaurant Seven was very nice - eat dinner there twice. What made it great was the exceptional set of bartenders and knowledgeable wine steward.
My wife and daughter utilized the spa, and had a terrific experience.
Beaches and water are amounts best I have experienced.
Only area of disappointment was the fitness center - now I understand why there were no pictures of the facilities on their web site....for a 1st class hotel the fitness center is 3rd rate at best on international standards.
Bottom line - loved Grace Bay and Turks and will be back again. Might try a different hotel in Turks, but wouldn’t hesitate to go back to Seven Stars.
I just returned from a week’s stay at Seven Stars. It was simply amazing. Upon arrival we were greeted with a cocktail and a tour of the grounds – which are beautiful and well kept. The staff was always friendly and courteous. Our beach server Lila was awesome! They had a good selection at breakfast and dinner at Seven was delicious. We ate there twice. The resort also provides guests with plenty of bottled water. The beach was just beautiful – white sands and crystal blue water. The room, we had a 2 Bed/2 Bath suite, was spacious and clean. It’s in the perfect location – walking distance to shops, restaurants and a grocery store.
We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation. If you’re planning a trip to Provo, this is the place to stay!!
We loved our stay at Seven Stars in downtown Provo! We had a one-bedroom suite with a separate living room/dining room, full kitchen, washer/dryer and one and a half bathrooms. The space was clean and spacious and opened up to a beautiful patio that was a short walk to the pool and beach.
The buffet breakfast was included and it had a great assortment of fresh fruits, pastries, cereals, and hot food, like made to order omelettes, a perfect start to each day. The staff throughout the hotel was friendly and the two occasions that we ordered room service, it arrived promptly and everything was very fresh.
The location of the hotel is excellent! We love Turks and have stayed in Provo a handful of times. Seven Stars is in walking distance to plenty of restaurants and the local IGA which is a great option for grabbing any kind of groceries or snacks you might need.
Like all beaches we've been to in Turks and Caicos, it's gorgeous, white and some of the softest sand you'll ever touch.
We're a family of four and we had a great time, between the pool and beach we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we'd happily return!
