I’ve raved about the Beaches Turks and Caicos resort before – I loved the press trip I was able to attend in January. I understand, however, that as a luxury resort, it may be a stretch for some families. 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 choose chose this spot for your family vacation.
Disclosure: I visited Beaches Turks and Caicos at no cost for review.
6 Reasons to Visit Beaches Turks and Caicos
Hassle Free Vacation
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 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. You won’t pay for water sports (even motorized water sports), alcohol, tips, or any food. 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 or requesting one-on-one babysitting).
Tons for the Kids to Do
Regardless of their ages, there is so much for kids to do. 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. 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!
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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
