There’s a straight shot of the white sand beach from the open-air reception area at this pretty boutique hotel, consistently ranked as one of the best in Providenciales thanks to its stylish, modern décor, friendly service and prime position along one of the less busy stretches of Grace Bay Beach. The hotel’s comfortable, condo-style accommodation options run the gamut from studios to four bedrooms, each with fashion-forward, earth-toned décor, comfy beds, and room to spread out. West Bay is a particularly perfect choice for families thanks to kitchens or kitchenettes that make it easy to dine in during your stay. And, while the relaxed vibe makes it easy to unplug, super-fast WiFi means you’ll have no problem staying connected if need be. The hotel has two restaurants: Noodle Bar + Kitchen features lunch and dinner menu with an Asian influence (think Thai chicken and glass noodle salad) and is also where the breakfast buffet is served each morning. Stix restaurant is on the beach, where light local nibbles like cracked conch and jerk-roasted corn on the cob are served on sticks alongside tropical drinks. Hit the small but well-equipped fitness center for a workout or walk over the little bridge from the resort to the sand and go for a long walk down Grace Bay, one of the Caribbean’s best beaches.
In the Area
Swing your clubs at the Provo Golf Club; this challenging and beautifully landscaped course is the only championship option in Turks and Caicos (look out for flamingos in the lakes). Or hit the water with a sail/snorkel excursion with Ocean Outback Adventure, where an afternoon aboard the glass-bottomed catamaran includes a trip to an old pirate cave. Hungry? Hit Da Conch Shack. It’s a bit on the touristy side, but it’s a must for mollusk-lovers with dishes like conch salad, conch fritters, conch chowder and more. For a gourmet dinner head to the glamorous restaurant Parallel 23 for a romantic alfresco setting, a state-of-the-art display kitchen and boutique wine list.
How to Get There
I had the pleasure of staying 3 nights at West Bay Club with my wife and 16 month old daughter and it was a wonderful experience. We stayed in a one bedroom luxury oceanfront suite and it was all we expected and more. The room was very comfortable and had all that we needed. The beach is awesome with the white sand and turquoise water. The staff was very accommodative and I must give special mention to Gio who was so helpful from the moment we arrived. He ensured we were well taken care of. We also must mention Ms. Margaret who is actually one of the main reasons we visited West Bay Club due to her good reputation with kids. Ms Margaret took very good care of our little girl and was an excellent baby sitter when we needed some time out. We also must big up Dedrick who served us great drinks and was also very helpful. Note that the end of August is the slow season and many hotels close for refurbishing. With that said the food at West Bay Club was ok.. not great, but there are a number of food options that you can explore. Also make sure to check out the fish fry on Thursday which is walking distance.
My family and I visited Turks and Caicos for the first time as part of a wedding party a few weeks ago. We stayed at the West Bay Club and really enjoyed our time there. The hotel is right on the water and the beach is absolutely picturesque. Beautiful white sand and crystal clear blue water.
We were busy with pre-wedding activities so our kids often visited the kids club (a great little daycare type center that is AMAZING for family trips!). The lady who ran it (cant remember if it was Maggie or Margaret) was phenomenal and made their stay a lot of fun. There was also the sweetest cat on the premises that they completely fell in love with. Getting to play with him was a huge highlight of their trip. It is nice to see that some resorts like the West Bay club do their part in helping the stray dog and cat population on the island by taking care of an animal. We noticed the neighboring resort did the same with another well fed and taken care of cat.
Heads up - the island is pricey (as are most islands since quite a lot has to be imported). Restaurants in particular fall into this category, although the quality of the food was excellent at basically every restaurant dined at.
Caicos dream tours is something we would highly recommend. You can choose either a half or full day excursion to iguana island. It was a wonderful experience and a great way to meet people.
All in all, our family had a great time and we would definitely stay at the West Bay Club again.
I’m so glad that I chose this place over the other options given to us. The one bedroom ocean view suite where we stayed was just perfect. We can go to the beach thru our front porch. The crew were attentive but not intrusive. The water was crystal clear and my daughter had fun snorkeling.
