What We Love

  • Private balconies and patios that front the beach
  • Snorkelling the nearby reef, which is teeming with colourful fish (free equipment available)
  • The resort offers free use of windsurfing gear, kayaks and bicycles for guests
  • One and two-bedroom suites mean space to spread out

What To Know

  • There's a three-night minimum
  • The public beach is within 45 metres of the property
  • This 21-suite resort has fewer amenities than bigger resorts so is best for couples or singles looking for a quiet getaway
  • The decor in the rooms could use an update
  • Bathrooms are on the small side
  • The resort has no restaurant, so guests will have to look elsewhere for dining options (but suites do include kitchens)

Amenities

Overview

The Review

Located at the quiet west end of Grace Bay Beach, just 15 minutes away from Providenciales International Airport, Turks & Caicos Club provides a quiet, no-frills getaway on some of the prettiest beach in the Caribbean.

The colonial-style building, embellished with gingerbread trim, feels like a stately bed and breakfast. Each of the 21 suites opens out onto a private patio or balcony, where sand warmed by the sun is just steps away. The rattan furnishings and four-poster beds could use an update, and the bathrooms are on the small side, but the suites do have air conditioning and fully equipped kitchens with stainless steel appliances (which is useful, as there’s no hotel restaurant) and modern conveniences like iPod speakers and DVD players.

Guests can simply lounge on Grace Bay’s pristine sand or get active with free snorkelling gear to spy on the island’s vibrant reef, as well as kayaks, bicycles and Hobie Cats. The club can also arrange outings for golf, whale watching (April only), horse rides on the beach and fishing excursions.

Although the freshwater pool is a bit small, it certainly has sun, and sipping a glass of cold rum punch while soaking it in isn’t a bad way to spend an afternoon. A full breakfast is served poolside each morning, and the resort also has an air-conditioned exercise room. But that’s about it for amenities. If you’re looking for a big resort with lots of activities, Turks & Caicos Club isn’t for you — it’s more focused on a laidback, private experience that’s all about the beach.

Amazing value for everything you could want/need on this gorgeous island
Reviewed 5 days ago

Grace Bay certainly stands up to its reputation as one of the “most beautiful beaches in the world”, and I’ve visited plenty beautiful beaches worldwide. I was warned by multiple people about how expensive Grace Bay would be, so I was admittedly hesitant when we found Island Club at such a reasonable price.
We arrived and were immediately met by Meghan. Her and the family are so kind, helpful and welcoming. Anything at all we needed, someone was just a few doors down to assist us. Both Meghan and her Mom gave us great recommendations (ex. Sunset cruise with Captain Dave; day pass at Club Med). Probably the most helpful recommendation was using their local cab driver, Calvin. We love you, Calvin!
As for the property itself, most reviewers have covered all the basics-beautiful landscaping; a pool with plenty of seating including couches and swing lounge chairs (perfect for relaxing in after a full day at the beach); patios on both levels of the condo; etc. We particularly loved the patio on the ground floor looking out at the pool area. I so miss having my morning coffee on that little patio! We didn’t use the grill, but it looked brand new and a great amenity.
The condo is in a prime location. Across the street is a great plaza with a wonderful cafe for fresh pastries, coffees, wraps and whatnot, as well as a beautiful fusion restaurant. Ask for Omar if you visit the restaurant. Great guy!
From the condo the beach is between a 5-10 minute walk depending on your route with available lounge chairs and umbrellas exclusively for Island Club guests. You’re also walking distance to numerous shopping plazas and restaurants. Check out Danny Buoys on karaoke night for some hilariously bad singing, or just for some good times.
Yes. You can pay $900-$1,000 a night at a 5-star resort. However, Island Club was perfect for us and had everything we needed for a fantastic value. It was our little “home away from away” and I’d return in a heartbeat.

Just an average apartment

We picked Island Club because we were traveling as a family (6 of us). I specifically noted that there was a washer and dryer in each unit - forewarning there is not! I saw another review that stated that someone else got to use the units there - we were told they were not available except in the busy season. The kitchen is fine for basics - but expect college type appliances and dishes. The beds were HORRIBLE and caused us all such pain - lumpy and ridiculous. The location is great and everything is in walking distance, and all of the activities generally provide transportation. The air only worked in one bedroom and it was freezing. The light curtains don't keep anything out so except bright sunshine as of 6 am. For a family of 6 we were given one travel size of shampoo and conditioner. The "beach chairs" are available on the beach if you can find them but there were only about 10 of them and other resorts were using them... so don't hold your breath on those. For the amount of money they are charging go to one of the resorts...

Location? Perfect - central, off main street, around corner from Salt Mills Plaza with many unique shops, also shops across the street, many restaurants within blocks to choose from, 10 minute walk to grocery store. Condo Units? Great. Had a 2 b/room and 3 b/room, bedrooms on upper floor, balconies both ends, front overlooks pool. Have your morning coffee on upper balcony, lower patio or 20 steps away by pool. Kitchen with all amenities, starter supplies provided. Towels and pool towels readily available. Comfortable sofa, beds, chairs. Free WIFI a bonus, mosquitoes not, bring spray. Unit very clean and inviting. Older units but well maintained, ongoing renovations and maintenance, a few minor issues resolved immediately. The units surrounded the pool, quaint courtyard atmosphere with groupings of lounge chairs, tables, hammock chairs, many umbrellas for shade, only steps from your door, take path thru the landscaped grounds. Pool toys supplied, even coolers for a beach day, plenty of towels, lots of small extras, no skimping. Megan, Debbie and Joe friendly and accommodating, Beach 1 block over, 2 blocks to beach, easy walk. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, we were 6 adults and 4 teenagers, felt right at home, made for an easy, relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Highly recommend for families with kids of all ages as well as couples, preferable over a hi-rise condo or hotel if you want a laid back vacation.

Could be really good - but it isn’t.

Potential? Yes! Realising it? NO!

Look it’s a bit of a rip-off and a bit depressing. There is zero attention to detail. Blood on the walls where the mosquitoes were swatted. Cheap and nasty kitchen equipment. Smelly, thin, old pillows. Broken ironing board. No service, no dishwasher and you have to wait until the evening to do any laundry (so their staff can use it - staff before guests).

No black out curtains and the light STREAMS in.

Since there isn’t a vacuum you can’t even clean!

Old dirty sponge left in the sink ... half a bottle of dishwashing liquid.

It’s just not as it should be for the money they take!

The fix is easy - pay attention and spend a little money on your guests!

Great Stay!

We arrived on the Isalnd on November 16 and spent 2 nights here. Our 2 bedroom unit was perfect for the 6 of us. It was very clean and comfortable. The pool was very nice as well. We met Joe, the owner who was very nice and brought us a cooler, chairs and an umbrella for our travels for the day. I highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back!
