What We Love

  • Private balconies and patios that front the beach
  • Snorkelling the nearby reef, which is teeming with colourful fish (free equipment available)

  • One and two-bedroom suites mean space to spread out

What To Know

  • There's a three-night minimum

  • 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)

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.

Convenient place to stay in Grace Bay
Reviewed 1 week ago

We spent a week at Island Club in April. We had one of the two floor units. The unit was very spacious and clean. We were only two adults, and the space would have been fine for a larger family. Internet worked great. the kitchen was fairly well equipped, but could use some updating in terms of pots/pans. We initially had a broken toaster, but this was replaced immediately with a brand new one by management. Furnishings are basic--don't expect luxury that you would find in a fancier hotel. But everything was clean and tidy.

The good things:
-great location right in the middle of grace bay, 5 minute walk to the beach
-beach chairs and umbrellas available for use at the beach
-the owners will provide you with extra coolers, umbrellas and camping chairs to take to the beach (or elsewhere if you go exploring with a rental car)
-the owners and management were lovely and prompt to respond to any issues
-pool area and courtyard were lovely
-brand new BBQ outside each patio
-plenty of towels for the bathrooms and to take to the beach

The cons:
-the beds are older and not the most comfortable
-the air condition worked well, but there was a constant high pitched hum/buzzing from it in the bedroom--needed to wear earplugs
-the lighting could be improved simply by changing the bulbs to a more yellow, rather than bright white, light

Bottom Line: Decent place to stay in grace bay in you are on a budget; still felt that the price for this was a bit high, although everything is so expensive in Grace Bay.

Clean, Well Appointed and a Great Value
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

A great value and location for your vacation.

The current owners bought the property a couple of years ago and are in the midst of renovating the entire property. The courtyard pool and gardens are very well maintained and all the building exteriors are neatly painted and maintained. The parking lots were clean and fairly freshly paved.

Service was great. Megan (property manager) checked on about everyone daily as did the owners. We were offered beach chairs and umbrellas to use at Grace Bay (there are loungers and some umbrellas already set up there) or to take with us if we ventured to other beaches. We were offered fresh towels daily but only took them as needed.

We had a renovated unit with all new furniture, bedding, cabinets and granite counter tops. The floors are wood grain look tile and the full bath had a new tub and vanity.

The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, dinner and flat ware. The unit did not have a dishwasher or washer and dryer but neither were of concern to us. We took turns doing dishes with the kids and we were offered access to the laundry used by the staff. We didn’t need it.

By mid week we’d made travel buddies with a large group traveling together plus another family or two. Everyone we talked to were very happy with their units.

The property is an easy 5 minute walk to the beach, has shopping adjoining and across the street with plenty more options within a 5 minute walk. There’s a grocery in the shopping plazas too.

I would highly recommend the property as it will be our first choice upon returning. This isn’t a luxury resort, but isn’t presented as one. For our family it was better as we were eager to explore the island and the restaurants.

A gem of a place in paradise!

What a fantastic value on a pricey island! If you’re looking for an exceptionally clean and well priced getaway in paradise, this place is for you! Excellent location and attentive staff. Joe and Megan are wonderful hosts, who take the time to make sure your stay is perfect! The location is just a short five minute walk to the beach and the pool area is a wonderful place to sit back and relax! We can’t wait to get back!

65th birthday
Reviewed 2 months ago

We stayed here from February 22-March 1. It was my mother in laws 65th birthday and 23 family members came to celebrate. We stayed in units 12, 11, 10, 9 and 7.
Units 7 and 9 are 3bdrm units, they both have washers and dryers. The 2 bdrm units do not.
Everything was great! The staff and owners were friendly and helpful, the units were clean and spacious and whenever we had an issue the staff were quick to help. Towels were plentiful and the kids loved the pool. Not sure if it was a salt water pool but it didn’t smell like chlorine.
The beach was a 5 minute walk, it’s an easy walk if you dont have young kids complaining that they’re tired and your stroller isn’t loaded down with towels, beach toys and extra umbrellas. Otherwise it’s a breeze.
The only downside was that there wasn’t enough umbrellas and chairs at the beach and my father in law had to go early every day to save chairs. Also there arent any places to eat on the beach, sometimes a guy comes from the hotel next door with a menu but not everyday.
Food on the island is delicious but expensive, but you can find places to eat that won’t break your budget. We usually bought a pizza for lunch from pizza pizza, a large 16” pepperoni was $20 and it did not disappoint. Across the street from the hotel is a plaza with multiple restaurants, we had breakfast at shay cafe, breakfast for 2 adults and 3 young kids came to $57usd, their breakfast sandwich wrap was delicious and healthy and their pancakes were huge, thick and fluffy with plenty of homemade whipped cream and real maple syrup. I had a green smoothie from there and it was $13.
There’s also a grocery store about a 7-8min walk away. Prices are like wholefoods and longos (if you live in Ontario, canada). Except for the 12 pack of corona, that was $75usd, stay away from those. They also had prepared foods that was delicious, we bought 6 pieces of fried chicken breasts for $14.

All in all it was a very nice stay. The hotel was comfortable and clean, close to the beach and food places. If the hotel invests in some more chairs and better umbrellas, which i suspect they will in the future since they’re always improving, everything would be perfect.

nice place to stay in grace bay in Turks Presidenciales
Reviewed 2 months ago

it is a great ANB in Grace bay area. the property is fully equipped and clean and neat.. The owner is on site to take care of needs. the garden surrounded by property units is gorgeous.
Be aware that it is hard to find public accesses to the grace bay beach, because the beach is taken by resorts or private properties. the island club locates within 5 minute walk to a public access. Does NOT like other ANBs, the owner also provide chairs and umbrellas for their guest in beach. there are a lot of restaurants and shops closeby.
Highly recommend the island club if you want to rent ANB in the grace bay.
