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
I just returned from a trip to Seven Stars. I picked the resort based on the reviews from Tripadvisor. This will be a detailed review, but I will summarize things now.
- Amazing Beach
- Grocery store, shops, and food within walking distance
- Currency is USD
- Friendly Staff
- Received no tour on arrival and had to navigate property on my own. I watched families receive tours
- Not many options for off-resort transportation
-Not the same standard of other 5 Star resorts
- Little Birthday Extras. I am used to balloons, towel animals, something in room. This resort offers a glass of champagne. If you do not drink alcohol, I believe non alcoholic versions are available.
Now for the full review:
Upon arrival, I received a Welcome Drink and was taken straight to the room. My travel agent told me to ask for a room away from the construction, I did this at check-in however the young lady that checked me in acted as if this was not possible. I was tired from a day of traveling, I gave it a shot. Thankfully, the angle of the room allowed me to enjoy my oceanfront room. I would advise selecting a different room if you want no views of the construction. Also, there is a 22% upcharge for everything on the island. Plan accordingly.
Below I will describe my experience throughout the resort.
-Simple and Fast
-Was offered no tour of the property
Room ( Junior Ocean Front Suite):
- Very Clean
- Minimal Noise in the Alia Building
Beach: White powdery sand and beautiful water. Loved it.
Staff: The staff made this trip and my birthday great.
Romeo & Daniel at the Champagne Shack were AMAZING. They took great care of all of the patrons and remember guests by name. It was great to receive an individualized greeting daily and to see smiling faces all around. These two were also great resources for activities and all things "To Do".
Charles and Mike on the Beach took great care of me. From setting up your beach section to ensuring that you are comfortable, they handle it all. The smoothie samples and Evian sprays were great additions on the beach.
Evens at the adult pool always offered a smiling face and optimal customer service.He definitely went above and beyond.
Ms. Lynn in the mart was really nice and a great resource.
I booked the rejuvenation package and Leonella(sp) provided optimal service. She was knowledgeable and this treatment blew the socks off of any that I have received thus far. I love the spa.
Great alternative. They provide food from the Deck restaurant. $5 delivery fee.
Overall a great trip. While there were times where some staff members provided minimal to no service, the ones that did were great. I would return.
The Seven restaurant in the seven stars resort was amazing! Specifically -Gill and Ronald made the best martini’s on the planet! A French/Chocolate/Espresso and lemon Basil. We didn’t want to leave and had bar appetizers -try the roasted cauliflower with goat cheese. It’s a winner!!! What a nice atmosphere ????
Very nice rooms, service is great! Ladies at check in desk weren't very friendly when I asked a few questions. Construction by tower 3 for Ritz Carlton makes it impossible to enjoy the patio and sleep late! Ask to be moved, I wish I would have.
