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
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!
We had an amazing experience at Point Grace. The location is perfect with unobstructed views and plenty of space in the beach. When we arrived we were greeted with a rum punch, tour of the resort, and our bags arrived immediately to our room. When we went to the beach, the staff prepared us a spot with chairs, umbrella, towels, ice and bottled water. The spa was incredible - private, open air treatment rooms right on the beach. Our room was cleaned twice a day. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. Absolutely recommend!
Turks and Caicos is a bit of paradise for us. We go there to recharge and heal from the hectic life. The sand, sun and beach are amazing. We had never stayed at Point Grace before and booked it at the last minute. Turks and Caicos resorts tend to be huge and very crowded with tons of children with packed in loungers at the pool and beach. Not at Point Grace. This is a peaceful and small resort with ample beach and pool area with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy peace and quiet. This in and of itself made up for the shortcomings which are many.
The hotel is extremely tired and the rooms are dark. The furniture is very beaten as are the appliances in the kitchens. The bed was comfortable and the towels were fine. The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and special. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The beach is really special because it is one of the widest points on Grace Bay with plenty of sand and space. The loungers are comfortable but the towels covering them are torn and threadbare. They say they bring you treats during the day but that happened once on 2 of the days. Nothing the other 5. The bar is adequate but no one comes down to the beach to take orders etc. They run out of umbrellas and ice water is never replenished.
The other major failing of the property is the breakfast. Most resorts include breakfast but this was by far the skimpiest and least appetizing breakfast I have experienced. The pastries were great but the fruit platter looked like it came from a Costco. The oatmeal was free and each day it had a different consistency. The only egg option was hard boiled and they routinely took 20-30 minutes to get. No scrambled eggs. We splurged and ordered off the main menu one morning and chose French Toast with berries- forget it. There was a light coating of egg on the outside of the bread but otherwise it was like eating a piece of dried bread. There were maybe 3 berries on the plate. We sent it back!
Would we go back - yes because of the relative peace and quiet that you don't get at the other large resorts, but the property is nowhere near the level of other resorts like The Palms, West Bay Club etc. The place really needs a renovation and better kitchen.
I had never been to Provo in the Turks & Caicos but booked a room at the Point Grace based on other reviews on Trip Advisor. I had to go to Provo on a business trip a week ago and decided to take my wife and spend the weekend there.
We were so happy to have found Point Grace which is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We had a lovely 1 bedroom fully equipped suite poolside. From the moment we arrived we were treated royally by one of the most friendly hotel staffs I have ever met. i cant say enough about everyone we encountered.
We had a wonderful complementary continental breakfast each day and it could be augmented from a menu. The restaurant on the property, Grace's Cottage was closed for renovations but we can't wait to get back to try it. BTW, the pool is superb with a bar alongside. Of course i cant say enough about the beach on Grace Bay. There were ample chaises and there were paddle boards, kayaks, and catamarans available. There is also a spa on property and we will certainly try it when we go back.
Fortunately we are only a little over an hour by plane away.
The only negative was the WiFi was a little spotty in our suite but there was a strong signal in other areas.
i travel extensively in the Caribbean for business and I can definitely say Point Grace is now at the top of my list.
