How to Get There
This was our 3rd Visit to Beaches Turks & Caicos. The first was in 2009 and again in 2018. Our first two visits we stayed in the Caribbean Village, both rooms were nice and at the Concierge level. (Didn't really find value in the Concierge service) This trip we splurged for a Key West Butler Suite.
Room: AMAZING! The view was spectacular, room was clean and stocked perfectly.
Beach: Hands down the most beautiful place I have ever seen. My husband and I walked the beach several miles each day. Safe and georgeous views!
Resturants: The only buffet was breakfast at Reflections with a vast selection and delicious. We didn't want any buffets at night so we enjoyed our meals at Arizona, Barefoot, Sapodillas, Kimonos & Le Petit Chateau. By far our favorite is Sky. The food was unbelievable and our waiter Mark was wonderful.
Pools: Spent most days at the Italian pool. French is very chill. Bishop the bartender at the Arizona pool is one of a kind! Ask him to make his signature drink!!!!
Our Butlers: I really can't say enough about the service we received from Aide and Fitzroy. They were kind, courteous and fun! They made sure we had anything and everything we needed. My girls were in love with the nightly towel animal left on our table. It was the perfect end to each day. We decided to truly splurge for this room and Aide and Fitzroy truly exceeded all of our expectations. We have re-booked for a future stay requesting the same room and to have Aide and Fitzroy as our Butlers.
Beaches Turks and Caicos is a FANTASTIC resort for people of all ages. The beaches, pools, and food is excellent. My favorite restaurant was Sky. It is an adults only restaurant, which is a nice getaway since there are many children at the resort. Our server, Mark, did an excellent job and made our experience remarkable! The best part of Beaches Turks and Caicos is the service. The service provided is truly unmatched. This year was my third time going and my family had the Butler Service for the first time. Aide and Fitzroy were the absolute BEST!! They made our week so enjoyable and I feel so fortunate to have had them as butlers. They are truly wonderful human beings! I cannot wait for our next visit, even though it is over one year away. I loved every minute at Beaches and would highly suggest booking with Aide and Fitzroy if you are considering the Butler Service.
Synopsis: This is our family's second trip to Beaches Turks and Caicos. The first was in 2008 and it was among our favorite family vacations! Italian Village was still under construction. The resort was about 75% smaller, but the level of service was much better. Bigger is not always better. Our family had a great vacation, but no one in the family rates it as our favorite any longer, and we are not eager to return. Sounds negative, but it is still a very great beach, many great staff and a gorgeous property.
How we rated:
Food: 3 of 5 stars (food often served luke warm due to long waits)
Beverage: 4 of 5 stars due to limited bar selection
Grounds and landscaping: 6 of 5 stars, only peer is Paradise
Front Desk Caribbean Village: 2 of 5 stars, most did not know how to do their jobs
Excursion desk: 5 of 5 stars because we worked with Sandra, but the others were very good as well
Red Lane Spa: 4 of 5 stars (it was a hassle to get them to honor the promotional spa discount, services were very good)
Loyalty desk: 3 of 5 stars (poor discounts to book next Sandals/Beaches vacation, but some of the staff are good...depends on who you work with)
Watersports: 4 of 5 stars
Loyalty event: 3 of 5 stars (We are loyalty members for several other brands, and Beaches is below average - they really don't seem to value return guests that much, more emphasis to "farm the membership" for donations for their charity)
Housekeeping: 5 of 5 stars - if you need anything, just ask!
Beach: 5 of 5 stars - the non-resort vendors are persistent, but the beach is a highlight for this resort...!
• Most of the staff obviously enjoys their job. Some do not, and these few can create an unfavorable experience. Teenager even picked up on this attitude...seems like some have no incentive to provide excellent service since they cannot be tipped.
• The coffee shop in French Village is 5 of 5 stars, they need to add one in the Italian Village - imagine it...Italian Coffee Shop! I wrote the management team a recommendation, here it is: Coffee is serious business in Italy. Italians head to the bar (as coffee shops and cafés are most commonly referred to) first thing in the morning and might visit another two, three or more times throughout the day. But Beaches Italian Village doesn't have one? Italians have to go to France (French Village) for coffee. Non bene! I am being light hearted about this because it is a Champagne problem (another French joke, get it?), but Butch and Mr. Don should carve out a little retail space in the Italian Village and put in a coffee shop offering the feel of Rome, Beaches style.
• Sesame Street characters 5 of 5 stars, they were great! Get some pictures with them!
• The property grounds are immaculately maintained...beautiful paradise...the best aspect of the resort next to the beach
• The different Village themes are Disney quality, and well executed.
• The waterpark was fun, even for parents with a teenager.
• Better beer selection at the Irish pub (Cricketeers) in the Italian Village.
• Families enjoy trying to catch the lizards on the property.
• They keep the beach very nice.
• Always plenty of clean towels
• Bartenders are very good at every bar
• There are golf carts that will drive you Village to Village.
• The Kity Kat cruise catamaran cruise with snorkel, Iguana Island was a highlight excursion!
• Lukewarm food due to very long food service wait times
• Solicitation on beach, continuous sales offers from non resort vendors (parasail, hair braid, illegal drugs...)
• Upon arrival, no one greeted us or provided instructions on where or how to catch the Beaches resort shuttle (they did last visit)
• Internet is very slow and it's a constant battle to get or stay connected, if you are a connected individual...brace yourself!
• Teenage son was asked he wanted marijuana or other drugs by one of the non resort vendors
• Erroneous charges appeared on our account, constant hassle
• I booked on the Black Friday promotion that included, a Catamaran cruise and $450 of spa credit, I had to get the Missouri Attorney General Consumer Protection Division to make them honor the promotion, Olivia Rodriguez, Senior Manager of Guest Relations emailed me stating she would personally handle this and add it to the booking. When we arrived at Beaches resort, it wasn't on the booking and they asked for proof...I brought the email from Ms. Rodriguez and shared with the manager. (Tip: Bring documentation of your booking details.)
• Too many families were complaining about food sickness after eating at the Soy Sushi restaurant. We did not, but although Tasty, did NOT want to risk it!
• Mold was on the tiles in the shower.
• Kimonos is the only restaurant that requires reservations and guests raved about it. We say 3/5 stars with no interest in returning during this holiday.
• It is time for the resort to leap into the 1990s with their technology! Staff were logging by hand your room number and name...it took me decades back in time! Give me two weeks complimentary at your resort and I will build you a project plan to become best in the world!
• Golf carts and segways sped way too quickly through the guest portions of the resort posing a hazard to children. I spoke directly to management multiple times about my concern after seeing preventable close calls from our balcony. We even heard tires squealing.
• Guests complain about the non resort vendors, but other guests take them food and beer! Security was aware but do nothing and they could be neighbors.
• The words out, other island visitors come on the resort and order drinks. I saw a non resort vendor coaching a group of 20 somethings how to get free on Beaches resort drinks.
• We've never been to a resort where so many guests complain about the price they paid to stay there. Perhaps if the resort didn't feed and offer drinks to the island and non guests, prices would be less for the honest guests who paid their own way.
• Beds are advertised as queens. The Bed FRAME was a Queen, but the MATTRESS was only full sized.
• Chair hogs, yes, they are abundant and most prevalent at the Italian Village pool. Semi affectionately referred to as the "Wal-Marters" these guests are clearly self-absorbed with no regard to others, prepare yourself for them. The Beaches staff tolerate the Wal-marters/Chair Hogs.
• Take: bug spray, plenty of sunscreen ($30 on resort), bug bite medicine, hat, tummy medicine in case you get a stomach flu/food illness
• Exit PLS airport and look for Beaches podium/queue to the left
• Know your assigned village (Caribbean, Italian, Key West...) because there are separate drop offs for each
• Bring your home town team hat, shirt...you might be surprised how many "neighbors" you meet!
• Bring your booking documentation showing everything you paid for, remember, Beaches technology systems are circa 1990 so they just presume you are lying until you prove it with printed documentation
• If you are a beer drinker, bring coozies to keep your drinks cold longer
• Sunglasses a must, if you read on the beach, shaded reading sunglasses are a great to have
• Don't overdress...very resort casual!
• If you get a massage, remember this could qualify for the flex care reimbursement if your employment offers. I claimed ours successfully!
• The Sesame Street characters will take pictures with you if you don't take too long...
• When departing, follow the instructions and times on the envelope provided to you in your room the night before your departure. Arrive at the departure lounge 20 minutes before your airport transportation departure time. When departing from the departure lounge, ensure you do so with your entire party.
• Not Beaches related, but PLS departure terminal is a mess. It offers an unfavorable environment for travelers and employees alike. Crowded, not enough chairs, poor air conditioning/circulation, disorganized...very uncomfortable place and family told me they didn't want to come back to the island because of it since there are other more favorable Caribbean islands.
• Find a staff member that has worked here for more than 6 years and befriend, they will know who to call and how to resolve issues that may arise...they might even make the call for you!
• Unless you graze like a goat, you do NOT need to bring snacks. Even popcorn is available at a couple of locations
• Stella Artois and other premium beers are only available at Cricketeer
• Beautiful sunsets can be enjoyed from Sky, Neptune's, Bayside, or Schooners.
• Sushi at Bayside is very good.
• The resort thins out after lunch (kids nap time) and after 8 pm (kids bed time). We have a teenager and ate at 8 pm to enjoy smaller crowds.
• Some guests were bitten by sand fleas, bug spray is extremely valuable for these folks.
• Resort provides Red Lane Soap, Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash and Lotion.
• Resort provides umbrellas in your room
• Bring towel clips for your beach and pool chairs.
• Each room has a drying rack on the balcony.
• Each room has a hair dryer.
• If you are a high achiever/driven individual, put your expectations and pace in neutral or "Caribbean time" to maximize holiday/vacation enjoyment!
• Plan for long waits to be seated unless eating at a buffet, so find the nearest bar and let the hostess know where to find you and enjoy the music/company/atmosphere/wait.
• If you have young children, ask about the resort train rides.
• If you have young children who love Sesame Street characters, book the character breakfast (Disney quality).
• To get the inclusive snorkel, glass bottom boat tour...go to Water Sports at 7am to sign up for the following day.
• For snorkelers, there are manmade reefs swimming distance off of the beach of Italian Village and out from the jacuzzi in Caribbean Village. Resort employees didn't even know about these sites despite the news articles printed on the East end of the Water Sports building. Also, the best off beach snorkeling is about 100 meters west of Beaches Resort.
Beautiful resort, but would we go back? Probably not.

Family of four including 18 and 21 year old boys. Stayed at Caribbean Village which is the oldest of the four villages. Very nice including a view of the ocean. The French, Italian, and Key West villages are newer but many of the rooms do not have ocean views. We had room 707 which was the second floor. King bed bedroom and good size trundle bed in the main living room area. Two big balconies. Kind of quiet area. Staff was very friendly. Tons of food options. Very clean. Most buffets had staff serving all items so people aren’t touching utensils. Hand sanitizer basically required when entering all restaurants. So thankful for that attention to food safety. Kimonos hibachi restaurant very good but their ‘entertainment’ of singing songs while cooking was unnecessarily loud. Beach was beautiful. Lots of free things to do like paddle board and snorkeling. The night time entertainment had great costumes and stage screen but not the best play choices Alice In Wonderland and Jungle Book are not the most fun stories for kids or adults. Beautiful grounds. So well kept. We absolutely loved the trip.
This was a wonderful option for a family spring break (regardless of ages of the kids - mine are teen/tween). I wanted an all inclusive somewhere not in Mexico and this fit the bill. Everything is truly included (except spa which you would expect to pay for) and the food and drinks were good. The very best part is the beach and water - I believe that sand and water are the best I have ever seen. The resort is so large and the beach is so long that you can always find an amazing spot to sit and relax without a lot of people around and without having to run out early to reserve a spot for the day. I found the pools to be mostly the same way - I could almost always find at least one spot for our stuff. There are also lots of restaurants so you don't get tired of the exact same food day after day (Soy and Barefoot were our favorites). We had a very relaxing week together. The cons are that the bar service is a little slow, the breakfast buffet was average, and our room was really small for four. Tip - book early if you are going for spring break - it was sold out while we were there and I got one of the last rooms booking ~6 months out.
