Beaches Turks CaicosThe Lowdown: Beautiful setting. Luxurious accommodations. Excellent service. My daughter and I had the privilege of staying at the new Italian Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos. It was as close to perfect for both of us as any vacation could get. The folks at Beaches have obviously put some serious time into understanding what their guests are looking for and it has paid off. From the expanded water park, kid’s programs for babies to teens, stunning guest rooms, wide variety of restaurants and beautiful beaches this place has it all.

I could not drag my 6-year-old daughter away from the kid’s club which gave me some time to walk the beach, go to the spa, or relax by the pool. Beaches Resorts may be a bit pricier than others but the extra investment is well worth it.

Kid’s Comments: This was my favourite vacation ever! I loved Pirate Island Waterpark, the free ice cream, the restaurant on the beach, my own bunk bed, the Xbox, the pool, the beach party, baking with Cookie Monster, my new friends…I had to stop her here! (6-year-old girl)

Pirate Island WaterparkThe Top 5 Things you should know about Beaches Turks and Caicos:

  1. The Waterpark: Pirate Island Waterpark was expanded and reopened in March 2009. Along with the original slides and pool area it now includes a lazy river, 2 larger waterslides, a surf simulator and some additional water play areas. This is a thrilling destination for kids from toddler up.
  2. The Beach: The beaches in Turks and Caicos are beautiful. The sand is soft and white and the water is clear blue and so inviting. 
  3. All-inclusive: Beaches is all-inclusive. As we all know there is a spectrum with this definition but I was impressed with how much was covered. From little details like the live shows, the Xbox room and Pirate Island Waterpark, to the in-room mini bar, snorkeling, and kid’s club. However, there are a few things that cost extra including the spa, some excursions, and the Sesame Street breakfast (which were all well worth it in my opinion).
  4. The Flight: Part of the reason the trip to Beaches Turks and Caicos is pricey is because of the cost and availability of flights. There are very few direct flights and getting there otherwise means a long stopover (ours was 4 hours each way in Charlotte, NC). Basically the flight adds cost to the trip and hours of travel time on each end of your vacation. 
  5. The Kid’s Programming: Beaches has expanded the kid’s programming to include extensive options for tweens and teens. The Xbox 360 Game Garage is a fabulous meeting place for kids 5+, there are dedicated areas where only tweens and teens are allowed including Liquid Nightclub and DJ Scratch Academy while the toddlers and preschoolers still enjoy the fabulous Sesame Street programming.

    Beaches, Turks and Caicos is by far my favourite Caribbean resort.
    I prefer this resort to others for a number of reasons – the large scale of the resort, the variety of restaurants, the number of pools (for kids and adults), and the beaches. The pristine beaches are like no other. You can walk for miles on the beach and never come across a piece of seaweed or even a shell.
    We especially enjoyed and took advantage of the babysitting offered in the evenings. My husband and I dined twice in the adult-only restaurants.
    I would highly recommend Beaches, Turks and Caicos as a family holiday destination. Direct flights to and from Toronto are also a bonus when you’re travelling with kids.

    My family and I spent Christmas at Beaches Turks & Caicos and I agree with everything said above….We cannot wait to go back. In fact, my husband said “Why would we go anywhere else?”

    My family and I just returned from Beaches, Turks & Caicos. I have to agree with everything. It was truly a fantastic vacation. We were a little hesitant because we read some reviews on another website but as soon as we arrived it was clear to us that we were going to have a great time and our 3 kids just loved it.
    From the amazing food to the spectacular beach, to the luxurious accomodations, we were more than satisfied with our choice to make Beaches Resort our choice for a well overdue family vacation.
    Fun was had by all!!!
