At Point Grace, there is plenty of space to get comfortable; all guest rooms are generously-proportioned suites, which range from one to four bedrooms. Details are the key here, with Frette linens, Indonesian teak furnishings, and Turkish Saturnia floors in every room. There’s also a dedicated Thalassotherapy spa that offers treatments like massage and body scrubs in seaside pavilions, shaded loungers for your use on the beach, and a colonial-style bar complete with whirring ceiling fans and eclectic antiques.
In the Area
The jewel in the crown of Providenciales island is Grace Bay Beach, regularly lauded as one of the world’s best. Point Grace is perfectly situated on its white sands and ideal for those who prefer to while away a week on property. It’s a short bike ride to the nearest grocery store, though a rental car will help restless types to make the most of the island, whether they choose to charter a sail boat, play a round of golf at Provo Golf Club, or explore historic sights like Wade’s Green, the redolent ruins of a former cotton plantation on North Caicos, which is accessible by ferry.
How to Get There
Point Grace is a small, quiet resort which was perfect for what we wanted. This was our first trip to Turks and the concierge was very helpful in guiding us to restaurants and excursions.
- Large clean rooms with plush towels
- Grounds/landscaping were kept up nicely
- Water and beach chairs set up by the pool/beach everyday with morning and afternoon snacks.
- Great location close to restaurants within walking distance
- Friendly staff
- Managers cocktail hour on Monday evenings - great time to meet other guests
- Need more help at Pool/beach - they never came around to ask if you want drinks/food. Food/drinks were not cleaned up until the end of each day. Would expect exceptional service based on the price point.
- Breakfast same everyday with no hot items.
- Spotty WiFi - works consistently in the room, but not at the pool/beach
- 10% service charge on all bills- they never really explained what it is or if staff gets a portion of the gratuity. Always felt we were over tipping.
- Clientele of resort is an older crowd. We were there during a winter break for the east coast so we met some younger people with kids. The kids were very well behaved so didn't cause any issues . Once the kids left, it was very quiet.
Of course, you can't beat the beautiful waters and beach of Grace Bay that you can walk for miles. The resort has kayaks, paddle boards and hobie cats for you to use, but unfortunately, it was very windy during our stay so we chose not to take part.
We've been to Turks and Caicos a few times, but this was our first experience at Point Grace. It was glorious! We had an ocean view suite which was very spacious and beautiful. The staff could not have been more attentive. Their service was phenomenal. Housekeeping visits twice daily. Beach service was so attentive, from preparing the lounges with towels to bringing buckets of ice with bottled water. We felt so pampered. The beach is spacious and beautiful and we were close to shopping areas and restaurants, including Grace's cottage on the premises. We will fefinitely return!
We chose Point Grace due to it's location on Grace Bay - very convenient to all of the other hotels and their restaurants. It's an older hotel and has beautiful landscaping. And it is home to Grace's Cottage, an outstanding restaurant in a Zen setting. We had a poolside suite and it was very comfortable, although a bit dated. The check-in was a bit painful, as rooms weren't ready and we had to scrabble through our luggage in the reception area to grab bathing suits, etc. Once room was ready, we then had to accompany a staff member to the room to simply sign a sheet of paper - that could have been done at my comfortable chair at the pool....The complimentary breakfast was a nice touch. There were plenty of options. The service at the pool bar and on the beach was very good. Fruit kabobs and sorbet served both and beach and pool, is a nice touch. It is a quite resort, but not in a bad way. We walked down to the Palms one afternoon, and it was like Grand Central Station - and not in a good way. I would recommend Point Grace.
We've been to Provo 10-12 times over the past 20 years, and once we found Point Grace three or four years ago, we've never stayed anywhere else. This was our third stay at Point Grace. It is so nice to be welcomed back by the familiar faces of the staff.
Most recently, we stayed for seven nights towards the end of January - a busy time on the island. However, we found this resort to be a peaceful and calm oasis. The resort appeared to be full, but there always were loungers and umbrellas to be had on the beach. The pool area was quiet and restful. The lush grounds are well maintained and beautiful.
From welcome to departure, we were treated warmly. Mary in the front office, Corrine and Larry at breakfast, Cosme and Ariel at the bar, and Windy on the beach took excellent care of us. Whenever Windy was on duty on the beach, he circulated among the guests offering to take food and beverage orders. Margaret kept our room kept spotlessly clean every day. Each day, mid-morning, fresh fruit skewers were brought down to the beach for guests; and in the afternoon, fruit sorbet was brought down. We enjoyed these treats very much, it was a nice touch.
We look forward to our next visit!
First off, the staff was incredibly friendly. Every single person I interacted with among the hotel lobby, pool, beach, and dining areas was kind and proactively accommodating...much more than a standard hotel experience.
Make sure to let them call a taxi for you when needed. Their drivers are wonderful and you will receive the best prices (still expensive because it’s Provo, but better than on your own...and safer!).
The twice a day room cleaning was a fun bonus...I always had ample clean towels and trash. They provide plenty of decent toiletries as well.
I had a pool view suite, and it was GORGEOUS. The person who recently said the hotel looks tired must not have had the same type of room. Mine looked freshly painted, no stains, clean and updated everything. The bed was comfortable, room stayed dark in the mornings, and I never heard noise even though our unit was next to the breakfast area. You could tell the builder thought about everything for those rooms, such as...
- Two completely separate bathroom sinks plus a stand next to the claw tub. This was awesome for a friend and I sharing a bathroom. We had our own space and could put our stuff anywhere.
- The living room furniture had oversized cushions plus a surround sound stereo already setup to play music from the TV hits channels.
- The kitchen included upgraded granite and appliances, but more importantly, it had every type of utensil and serving products you could think of...even a Ninja blender.
- The patio furniture offered several relaxation options (lay down chairs, sitting chairs, and a mini bed platform). Outdoor ceiling fans were available to turn on when the wind died down.
- Ample greenery surrounded the patio so it still felt private even though we faced the pool.
- The wood floors in the bathroom and bedroom felt classy and stayed clean while tile throughout the rest of the unit was perfect for constantly going in and outside.
- Two dressers, one for each person to store their items. Plus, the small walk-in closet had plenty of hangers and space with a heavy, drilled down safe available.
I highly recommend going to the grocery store down the street to buy your own snacks and drinks. A taxi can take and wait on you. The store was like a US grocery store with alcohol for a one-stop shop. The unit had a wine opener already. The hotel provides a lot of bottled water between the room, pool, and beach, but I also bought a gallon at the grocery store to always have on hand.
It’s also worth carrying on a bag instead of checking when dealing with Caribbean destinations, so between the hotel provided items and the grocery store, you can get most or all items in carry-on then buy necessities if needed there (yes, it’s more expensive but not worth waiting on luggage).
Despite the above, the most disappointing part of the trip was that the hotel makes incredibly weak drinks. If you ask for a strong drink, they will pour two shots instead of one and charge you double. A single drink is around $13. I do not understand why they measure shots precisely and make the drinks so weak, especially for the prices. Multiple bartenders were the same way. The rum punch hurt my stomach as it was mostly punch and sugar. One shot for a 20 ounce drink is not acceptable. I know Provo is expensive, but I have been to much smaller equally gorgeous Caribbean islands that charge less and give you generous alcohol...that’s part of being on the beach! If I’m paying $900+ a night for a room, I expect amazing drinks. I rarely saw anyone order from the bar during my trip, and it makes sense why. If you want to stay here, but your own alcohol!
The food at the resort is hit or miss. For example, the filet mignon was good (this is coming from a Texas girl!), but the avocado toast was literally 5 tiny slices of avocado on a piece of bread. You should plan dinners out at some of the top rated places on the island since the prices will be the same or less.
For beach lovers, it was never an issue getting a cabana or umbrella with chairs, even at 11am or noon. However, the pool chairs were ALWAYS taken by 8am. They only have 7-8 umbrellas around the pool, so people would grab one early then leave to go eat breakfast. The resort wasn’t even at max capacity, so go early for pool chairs!
Also, the resort states that it is family-friendly, but I did not see any kids (which we wanted). The pool also clearly states it’s a quiet zone and NO noise, so I would not recommend for kids or teens anyways. It was a much older, mature crowd. Perfect for quietness!
Overall, if you want a resort that makes you feel pampered without crowds, this place is it. I walked the beach for two hours, and this hotel has WAY more beach space per person. It’s perfect to feel like you have the place to yourself.
They need to severely work on their drinks and some food then it would be a 5 star place!
