I’ve raved about the Beaches Turks and Caicos resort before. I loved the press trip I was able to attend in January 2018 and later returned with my family two years in a row. I understand, however, that as a luxury resort, it may be a stretch for some families to afford.
As such, it’s important to make sure that whatever vacation destination you choose is suitable for your family. We loved Beaches Turks and Caicos so much that we’ve got many reasons to visit – here are six that you should consider when deciding whether or not you decide to choose this spot for your family vacation.
Disclosure: I visited Beaches Turks and Caicos at no cost for a press trip, and later returned at my own cost. I did receive a room upgrade on my second family trip. All opinions are my own.
6 Reasons to Visit Beaches Turks and Caicos
When I go on vacation with my kids, I want there to be as little hassle as possible. I want to enjoy my time, without worrying about the minor details. Once you go through customs at the Providenciales Airport in Turks and Caicos, your vacation is ready to begin.
Beaches Resort picks you up at the airport and brings you right to the lobby of your chosen village. I was at the resort within 45 minutes of landing (although your time may vary depending on the lines at the airport).
As an all-inclusive resort, it’s easy to budget for your vacation, because you know upfront what your costs will be. You won’t pay for water sports (even motorized water sports), alcohol, tips, or any food. We even were able to take an included glass-bottom boat tour.
There are very few things that are extra, so you probably won’t even need to carry cash with you unless you are purchasing souvenirs from one of the visiting vendors, getting a spa service, have a butler (they accept tips) or will be utilizing one-on-one babysitting. Employees at Beaches Turks and Caicos do not accept gratuities.
Because all of the restaurants are included, you won’t have to worry about what to eat. There are so many options.
Many Kids Activities at Beaches Turks and Caicos
Regardless of their ages, there is so much for kids to do at Beaches. From the kids’ camps that are open to kids aged 0-17, to the on-site waterpark, to the Xbox lounge, your kids will definitely be occupied during your vacation.
There’s also daily entertainment, multiple pools, a gorgeous beach, and watersports. You’ll want to stay for a week to do everything on your list! For our two family vacations, we’ve decided to stay for seven days and are never bored.
Visit the Gorgeous Beach
Grace Bay Beach is consistently rated one of the best in the world, and when you visit, you’ll see why. Although there is so much to do at the resort, you may want to spend some time just relaxing at the beach.
If that’s the case, you’ll love the clear turquoise waters and soft sand of Grace Bay. Beach umbrellas and chairs are available for complimentary use. We love the pools at Beaches, but also spend at least a few hours each day at the beach.
Delicious Food and Restaurants at Beaches Turks and Caicos
There are 22 different dining options at Beaches Turks and Caicos, so you can definitely visit a different place for every single meal. I enjoyed all of the food I had, and it was fun to experience different cuisines. My kids loved looking at the different menus online and deciding where to eat.
Only one restaurant, Kimonos, requires reservations, so it’s easy to make decisions on the fly. The food is delicious too. I’m still dreaming of the avocado toast breakfast from Neptunes.
In a few cases, there were times when we wanted one thing and the kids wanted another. It’s easy to visit more than one restaurant. An all-night eatery is open for snacks, burgers, pizza, etc.
Each day, you’ll receive a schedule of events in your room. This schedule showcases everything that the resort has to offer, from musical theater style productions to beach parties.
There are also some adult-only activities like poker (not for money). Young children will love the events of Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street, which includes parties, parades, and more.
On our first family vacation, we spend a lot of time doing different activities. For our second trip, however, we spent more time at the pools and beaches and did more water sports.
Fabulous Service at Beaches Turks and Caicos
Tipping isn’t allowed at Beaches Turks and Caicos, but the staff still provides fabulous service. There are tons of staff working at the resort, and they are readily available to help with whatever you need.
Some of the rooms come with concierge service, and others come with butler service. Even if you don’t have either of those special services, you’ll still find plenty of people to help you with whatever you need.
While Turks and Caicos (and Providenciales specifically) offer water sports, restaurants, and other activities for kids, we always stay on the property for the entire trip. There’s enough to do right there so you won’t need to venture out.
