Apologies for the delay in writing this review. We vacationed here in June of 2012.
This was our second trip to TCI and won't be our last! We are in love with Grace Bay like most of everyone is when then visit.
We couldn't confirm 7 nights in a 1 bedroom gardenview so we booked for the first night in a Studio gardenview and the next 6 nights in the 1 bedroom. The staff organized it so well for us that after the first night, our 1 bedroom was ready for us literally next door! We didn't have to trek through the resort to another room block. We were so pleasantly surprised by this!
The studio was large with a microwave and mini-fridge. The king bed was comfortable and the room was immaculate. The 1 bedroom was the same, large dining area, sitting area, kitchen with all the amenities, washer/dryer, separate bedroom and large wrap-around balcony with a table and 4 chairs. The unit was also equipped with every kitchen appliance/utensil you would need for your stay.
Even though we had a gardenview, we did have a small slice of ocean-view which was a pleasant surprise. We had breakfast on the balcony every morning, admiring the lush, tropical palms and vegetation, the bountiful flowers. On the other side of our balcony, we had views of the jacuzzi and pool.
We ate a few times at the Pelican, mainly lunch items like fries and conch fritters which are the best I have had anywhere! Yes the service is on island time, but you're on vacation, no need to hurry anywhere other than to the amazing beach!
We walked to Graceway Gourmet almost every night to have a coffee out on the patio. It's about a 10 minute walk but we didn't mind at all. We always feel safe walking around any time of day.
We rented a car for a few days with Avis this time and the whole process was simple. We had picked up the rental in Grace Bay and dropped it off at the airport before our departure.
We enjoyed the quiet pool and often went down around 10pm to lounge in the water and then sit in the hot tub for a little while. The WIFI was strong and never had any problems with that.
The only thing I would recommend for this hotel would be to add a few BBQ grills like they have at OCW. We missed out on bbq-ing by the pool.
This is a quiet resort, definitely a place to get some rest and relaxation. I would return to RWI and highly recommend this for your next holiday.
