Beach House – All-inclusive
What We Love

- 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
Having been to many Caribbean islands, we decided to try our Turks and Caicos. We were not disappointed.
First- the water and beaches are unlike anything you will find in this hemisphere. I have never stepped on such a clean beach with water so clear. That was worth the trip alone.
The Beach House hotel was exactly what we were looking for. 5 Star service without the pretentiousness you can find at other high end resorts. Being weary of ‘all inclusive’ hotels, we decided to give it a shot Bc this seemed to be more of a boutique than a mass produced catering company, throwing rum and cheap burgers at people. We were 100% right- you get to know your staff well, chat them up and have food prepared just for you as you like it. The staff was there when you needed them and not there when you wanted to be left alone: which made our trip perfect.
Also, their strict enforcement of the no children policy is great. We have kids, we enjoyed taking a few days off and not hearing anything but ocean waves and adult conversations.
If you are looking to wind down and relax, Beach House is where you should do it.
The Beach House is part of the Caicos trio: Alexandria & Blue Haven Resorts.
Make sure to reserve a beach chaise-several times. Beach House staff are not as friendly as Blue Haven or Alexandria.
Once we had the ‘right’ person with the reservation (after 3 calls). The staff were super. The beach service was amazing! The food delicious.
The beach was gorgeous-soft white fine sand, the water was calm and varying degrees of turquoise.
Beach House is an adults only-no kids.
Our stay at The Beach House was more than expected. We stayed for four nights and it was just beautiful. We had our own private beach with drink service so drinks were never ending. Our room looked out onto the beautiful blue water.Tia and Dwayne went above and beyond to help us with any and everything we needed or wanted. Staff is wonderful and fun! Food is awesome and was so good we only ate out once during our entire stay. It's quiet, clean, great food, friendly staff....what more could we ask for! The only down side during our stay was that housekeeping was not consistent. She forgot to leave our soap and wash cloths every night, but other than that our room was always clean.
Our 1 week stay at the Beach House Turks and Caicos from June 23 to 30th was a bucket list, trip of our lives. We chose this all inclusive, adults only resort for its 'boutique' appeal, looking for a more private and quiet vacation.
Our expectations were exceeded the moment we arrived and Reception greeted us with cold cloths for our faces. Dewayne, the greeter surprised my wife with their knowledge of her birthday and that they had already planned a special event for her. Then he took us on a guided tour of the property and our suite, which had been prepared with a nice tasty chocolate and fruit plate, and wine surprise and was wonderfully air conditioned to a perfect escape from the afternoon heat and travel from the airport. He showed us all the features of the room...everything you would expect from a resort as advertised. The room, ours was an Oceanview with the name of Coral ("where the rooms have no numbers" is their slogan), and I could describe it as Caribbean Colonial. Crisp, whites and clean lines with Stainless steel fridge and microwave in the kitchen for convenience, the fridge comes stocked with a selection of beer, soft drinks and water. There is also a kettle, and coffee maker fully stocked for the event that we wanted to make a cup of, which we did each morning.
The bathroom amenities included some nice body washes and conditioners etc. and there was a hair dryer and cotton swabs too, which was a nice touch. The rain head shower was very nice, large enough to move around in and water pressure, a bit low, but given the shower head style, was not unacceptable. We'd have liked a bath tub as well, but this suite did not have one.
There was also a safe in the closet and an ironing board if needed.
The bedroom was large, with a lovely king bed and it was very comfortable - unlike most of the other resorts we have been at which tended to be very hard. Sleep was easy to achieve when we turned down for the night. The ceiling fans provided a perfect breeze along with the AC, which was not overbearingly noisy, and functioned precisely as we expected.
There was a nice LED tv in both the bedroom and living room, which we barely bothered with, but for those who want it, there was plenty of programming it seemed.
On to the beach! The primary purpose for our having chosen TCI as our destination. And, it does not disappoint! That water, the color, the clarity...the fine white sand....and some cute fish that often come and check out your feet...
The beach itself at the Beach House was exactly as we'd hoped, very private and not crowded at all. With only 21 suites, there is no battling for space or loungers, and each suite is given its own designated set of lounge chairs, complete with umbrella for shade, marked with the room name on a post behind them.
Plenty of towels on hand to grab as needed, and access to the beach is via the boardwalk which runs from the oceanside of the suites which you see depicted in the famous photos from the beach.
The boardwalk takes you to the beach via the Beach bar/restaurant where you can get your all inclusive drinks and a pretty tasty grill with yummy ribs, burgers, fries, wraps and much more for snacks and munching.
Here's where things are different than any other resort we've been to: real beach service. We were treated mostly by Randall (Roger, when Randall was away) and AJ assisted us so well also. Randall took our orders, memorized our go-to's right away, and brought them to us with style and savvy. He is most definitely the man who's got you covered. We were well taken care of on his watch.
AJ was the main man for the beach activities hut, where he handed out snorkel gear we used to check out the marine life, helped peeps sail the hobie cat, or use the kayak or other gear. This is island time, and these guys are chill. They are here to show you how its done! Thanks guys!
Too much more could be spent reviewing the beach, and we know this is not a brief report...there is a spa on the beach as well which sadly if we'd sunscreened up better, we would have been able to visit. The girl there seemed under utilized, but was very helpful to us even though we couldn't fit in a massage. Her spa had some AC problems that I saw a maintenance guy fixing up asap. I hope she is able to get some business...these people depend on our support!
Moving on to the main dining restaurant and lounge, which are centered by the pool...we had read reviews and we can't believe some people had complaints about the menu choices. We found the dishes all to be first rate. I raved about the Atlantic Salmon I had to my wife and anyone who asked, the oven roasted chicken, red snapper, (I have a shell fish allergy but no issues with fish)...the salads, steak, yum! Our server was Rucadro most every night, and he was fantastic. All the servers were. The Chef deserves accolades.
Breakfasts at the poolside restaurant also were wonderful. We were served most often by Sandy, who had a great manner, and we learned a lot about her while chatting as she took care of us. I'm sure her story is echoed by many of the fine staff at these resorts. One we understand ourselves, that although this is a 5 star resort, and people pay a lot of money to come from many miles to see, not all is perfection with out a lot of hard work...these vacations are our rewards, but they also represent hope and opportunity to the staff who are there to serve. They deserve our thanks, and not just by coming.
This is where we suggest that planning ahead and bringing some gratuity cash is maybe vital to these fine people. Some may say, well no, this is an all inclusive resort and we paid good money to get here already...but let me say this: we are by no means rich, but we made sure we brought some tipping cash nonetheless. And we wish we could have brought more. If you do choose to come, and you do choose to bring some extra cash, bring small bills (1's, 5's and 10's), as it is not easy to get larger notes changed.
We understand some people choose to leave an envelope at the end of their stay, which is also a nice gesture. In the end, it is a personal choice, and many factors come into play. We just wanted to show a little extra appreciation for this island and its awesome people.
There is also a nice little gym on site which has all the basic essentials. I found it just right. AC, TV, washroom, towels, wipes, free weight dumbells up to 50lbs, a standard adjustable bench, treadmill, elliptical and cycles.
We won't go into details on the restaurant/bar hours or menus, as I can't remember them anyway and everyone has different tastes. I drank from dusk to dawn and enjoyed all sorts of beverages; mixed, cocktails, beer, wine and shots. Loved them all, no complaints. Grey Goose and Osprey vodka, Jameson and Johnny Walker black label whisky, Crown Royal, Jim Beam and Jack Daniels. The rum and cokes were nice and strong and the Turks Head light beer or Coronas were cold. Wine was chilled, red or white, and honestly, I didn't care. It was good enough for us.
Special thanks to Dewayne, who also took us to the Salt Mills town and the ATM, and a nice little tour around, Randall and AJ, who went above and beyond, Sandy and Rucadro ...
Also our room cleaners, who always kept us feeling like our room was new, and Sherman, who always had a smile and conversation. We wish we could remember all the names of all the staff who helped us... but thank you all.
We would not hesitate to return. #1 vacation.
My friend and I have been to several Caribbean Islands in the past but Turks & Caicos has been the best vacation so far! More than anything else the staff added to the great time. I can't say enough about Charles, Dewayne, Myra, Dorothy, Jamal, Rucadro, Randy, Joanna, Angelo, and so many others of the Beach House staff that made our vacation a time to remember. We loved it so much that we are going back in October! Thanks for the beautiful smiles and relaxing time my friends!! Can't wait to see you all again!!
