“Amazing Location, Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This hotel is perfect for anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxed beach vacation but does not need all the "luxury touches". If you are casual and on some sort of budget, this is the place. Here, you are paying for an incredible beach location (exact same beach as all the 5 star hotels!, and you're on the best part of it), a clean and well-equipped room, and friendly and casual staff.

This was our first trip to T&C. The location is perfect, even better than most of the nicest hotels and resorts - Grace Bay is a beach literally out of a dream (perfect blue water and white powder sand), and Ocean Club is on the edge of the main strip of hotels, so you can walk to the right for an hour on a nearly deserted beach! The restaurants at the hotel are great, but you are also right next to many other hotels and restaurants you can walk to on the beach.

Units are clean with good AC and relatively spacious. All have some form of kitchenette so you can get breakfast supplies at the grocery store (not far at all). They even have a blender to make iced drinks! Important to note: there is no room service.

The Service is excellent here - if you are a friendly, casual person (high-maintenance generally doesn't fly too well in the islands anyway...). Rooms were very clean every day and they even cleaned our dishes! Restaurant staff was also great, especially at the cabana bar.

One question we had was the difference between ocean club and ocean club west - there really isn't much difference at all, except that the OC west has a very slightly "nicer" feel. Personally, we would always stay at OC because of the location on the edge of the main hotel stretch!

For dinner, make reservations - lookup the time of sunset and if the restaurant is on the beach reserve for 30 mins before sunset. If not on the beach reserve for after sunset so you can still enjoy it!

Room Tip: Buildings are in pairs, starting with A and B closes to the water. A, B, C, or D are the best view...

Extraordinary beach and view. Great beachside bar and restaurant called CABANA BAR. Service is good and food quite good. One of my favorite breakfast places on island. Although it is an older resort, it is well maintained and comfortable and clean..................................

Turks and Caicos can be a pricey place but I was able to make up a package including air, hotel and car for a reasonable price. We stayed in a studio suite. Looked nothing like the one on their website. It was basically a regular room with a sink, fridge, coffeemaker, toaster and fry pan. A nice bonus was a washer/dryer in unit, which we didn't expect and a small screened in porch. As other reviews stated some of the front desk staff could be stand-offish but if you approach with a greeting and a smile they warmed up. They could use more training though. When we checked in, little was said about the resort and its amenities. We rented a car and couldn't get past the keypad entry because no one told us that there was a special code. We went to the bar for a drink and were asked for free drink vouchers-something they made us sign for but never gave us at check in.

There is coffee in the lobby in the am but get there before 9-9:30.

FYI a car is not necessary if you don't mind walking alittle but having one is convenient and cheap especially when bundled in a package (ours only cost $300 for 9 days). It saves on transfers and taxis. You have alot of food options as you walk along the beach to Ocean Club West and all the other hotels on Grace Bay. There is also a small shopping center (shops, cafe, bakery) and IGA supermarket down the road (they have carts at the hotel to borrow to lug groceries...another thing you have to ask about).

Great location, safe, pretty beach, calm clear turquoise water, powder sand, great rum punches-who could ask for more?

Room Tip: request an updated room, ask if room has washer/dryer

Going back to Provo after being there in Dec 2012 and staying at the Royal West Indies which was great, I thought I would try the Ocean Club. I was not disappointed! The condo unit was very well appointed and serviced daily. The screened in porch is wonderful. The pool area very nice and well landscaped. Both restaurants were good and the Cabana Bar excellent for lunch or a casual dinner. All the staff were friendly and very accommodating. The gym was very nice if you like to get some exercise while vacationing. I would recommend having a car for this property is at the far end of Grace bay - although I would have a rental car with any of the properties to explore the island and try the many great restaurants on the island. Also, to get to the grocery store for the units have a full kitchen, even if it's just for breakfast and snacks.

I have stayed at many resorts in Provo, usually down the other end near the snorkeling, however this time I thought I would try Ocean Club. Everything was a postive experience, the rooms were clean, landscaping beautiful, lots of chairs. The staff was nice. The one feature I liked about this hotel was that they offered free bike use. If I were to make one suggestion I would say that I missed getting that rum punch upon arrival. I am not a big drinker but there is something about getting out of a cab and be handed a drink that says " Let the vacation begin.." I most definitely will return, it was a good value for the price!

This resort was excellent, 15 minutes from the airport, at the far end of the Island, so not so crowded, plus a mile of beach pretty much untouched. Good restaurant with reasonable prices, ate most of our meals there, great service and very friendly. Rooms very nice, serviced every day. They had bikes to ride into town, not far at all, shopping, ice cream, and a grocery store, it was perfect, maybe a ten minute ride. Little convenience store on location too, used it frequently. Fun excursions, Caicos Dream Tours was the best, 1/2 day of snorkeling, conch diving (2 feet of water), private island, drinks and fresh conch salad provided, then dove for sand dollars. Parasailing a big hit too! We just got back and will definitely make it a yearly trip!

We stayed in Ocean Club Resort during the first week of April and absolutely loved it. We were in building I and had a beautiful view of the pool and the ocean beyond. The beach is beyond compare - white sand, unbelievable blue water. Everyone at the resort was helpful and friendly. We had a junior suite which included a kitchen, small living area, and balcony. This gave us much more space than just a double room. The shuttle to Ocean Club West is very easy. Cub West is within walking distance of a small plaza with shops and restaurants.

Two areas of slight disappointment. The in-room internet service was virtually non-existent. Also, the hair dryer was not efficient. Bring you own!

Other than that the resort met our every need. We will definitely be return to Turks and Caicos and to Ocean Club.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms in Building I have a good view of the pool/ocean.
