~ Mom Central was invited by Beaches Turks & Caicos to visit the resort and received complimentary airfare, lodging, meals, and activities. All opinions expressed here are our own.
From the air you can see the most incredible blue waters. From the moment you land you feel like you are in paradise. Upon arrival you are whisked away to a vacation destination like no other – Beaches Turks & Caicos Villages & Spa. Beaches Resorts is known for their family friendly, all-inclusive vacations. What may not be known about Beaches Turks & Caicos is that it is on 94 acres of the most lush green grass, on the softest of beaches, overlooking the most incredible blue waters you could ever imagine. This resort is so classy and sophisticated it caters to both adults and kids alike.
Beaches treats every guest as if they were a VIP. The quality of guest service is the best around. From the moment you enter the resort, throughout the day and into the night, the staff is eager to please.
All inclusive is just that: all water sports, land sports, board games, life size lawn chess, ping pong, tennis, basketball, meals, drinks, beverages from the bar, water slides, Teen’s only lounge, DJ Scratch Academy, Kids Camp (ages 0-10), evening shows, parades, live entertainment, X-Box lounge and even snorkeling excursions are all included. Your wallet never needs to leave the room. The only things not included would be spa services and off property excursions that are offered by Island Routes.
Beaches Turks & Caicos is the home to four villages: French, Caribbean, Italian and the newest member, the Key West Luxury Village.
With 44 different type of room options, 10 pools (including kiddie, adults only and water park), 9 waterslides, 19 varieties of restaurants to please every palate, 14 bars (including swim-up bars), 2 spas and 2 fitness centers, this property has something for everyone. For those who are looking for that extra special attention, there is the “butler service” – a dedicated butler to serve your every whim.
The resort has 758 rooms altogether that can accommodate up to 3500 guests. Buffet breakfast is offered in every village and food is available throughout the day.
The French Village: with its romantic fountains, and incredible gardens, this village is home to a half acre pool, whirlpool and swim-up bar.
The Caribbean Village: Home of the Kids Camp, Pirate Island and Water Slides , Bobby Dees ‘50s style diner including all you can eat, self serve ice cream, pizza and the most incredible chocolate cookies you could imagine (open daily until 6:00 am), X-Box lounge, Teens Only and DJ Scratch Academy and one of the resort spas. The Caribbean Village has it all.
In the Italian Village the scene is set like a Mediterranean village amongst Palm Trees with lush surroundings and 162 concierge level rooms, including some with the butler service. This village is home to the main pool of the resort, Dino’s Pizza, Confetti Candy shop and some of the best Italian food in all of the Caribbean and the giant chess board.
The newest village, Key West Luxury Village, is comprised of 156 rooms, all beach-front villas and incredible suites. Some of the suites are town house style with a full kitchen and washer/ dryer included in the room. Beaches, Turks & Caicos is so excited about this new addition to its ever growing resort. Set to look like you are in Key West, Florida, the village is engulfed with palm trees and mother/daughter type of living.
The resort went all out for the welcoming of this new village. With a “White Party” for all of it’s guests and a big hello from the owner, Mr. Stewart. Beaches did not leave any stone unturned to throw the biggest bash in all of the Caribbean. With mermaids, fire-eaters, a live band from Florida and dancers, it was a celebration like no other!
Security is a big deal to Mr. Stewart and his son, Adam. In order to drop your child off at the kids camp, a passport and security password must be provided. At the end of the camp day, your child is released to you only if you have the correct password. Good luck retrieving your child if your spouse dropped him/her off in the morning and didn’t tell you the password at the time of pick up!
If you’re looking for a destination wedding, Beaches, Turks & Caicos is host to about 1000 weddings per year. In the month of May alone there were approximately 375 weddings performed.
Sandals Foundation is a part of the Sandals family and is committed in helping the children of the Caribbean and the land. From planting Mangroves on Iguana Island to Reading Road trip, dedicating books and time to the children of the island.
I can honestly say I did not hear one child cry during our entire visit at the resort. This is such a happy place with so much to experience, see and explore. No wonder everyone at Beaches Turks & Caicos Villages & Spa
has all their frowns turned upside down!
