My family of 5 (3 kids ages 9,8 and 3) just visited at the end of April and had a great vacation.
If you are looking for an easy get away from the tri-state area with luxury accommodations, this is the place. Having never been to T&C I looked for recommendations from trusted friends and this was really best option. Most folks have visited the Beaches all inclusive resort (and loved it) but unless you enjoy hanging out with 1500 people and Elmo on your vaca, the regent palm is more our speed. We had an ocean view 1 bedroom suite. It was perfect. However next time I would prefer to be in building 3 instead of 2 to have an even better view you can upgrade to ocean view but don't think it is worth the extra money. I wasn't aware until we arrived that we had a full Viking kitchen. Handy when you have kids and next time we will stop at the IGA next to the airport to pick up beer ($2 vs the $9 at the pool), wine, snacks milk etc...you can get some basics groceries the hotel if needed. We never had issues with lounge chairs in fact we felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. The kid club is great, especially since my kids were basically the only ones there. Nadine the camp counselor was fantastic and she was also our baby sitter in the evening. The restaurant was very good, actually one of our best meals on the island along with the highly recommended Coco Bistro which is a short cab ride. The rest of our meals were just a short beach walk and very causal. Nothing too exciting as far as the food goes (spoiled New Yorker!) but decent. Just steer clear of the Bay bistro which my daughter found multiple hairs in her grilled cheese-ugh!
So here are my negatives, but as I mentioned we would return despite my sort of negative observations:
Service is a little slacking particularly when sitting around the pool. Don't expect to have people regularly asking you if you'd like a drink or food. Also once you finish a drink, be prepared to get up and throw out your garbage otherwise it will sit until the wind blows it away. New fresh towels? Got to get up and get yourself. I didn't mind doing since I was always up anyway and if you do ask someone they are more than happy to do, but just not the level of attention you would expect at $1200 a night.
For the kids camp it starts at age 4...that was a problem since my youngest is 3.
The island doesn't seem to recycle anything which felt wrong.
Our housekeeper didn't make up our room one night and mgmt didn't really seem to care.
Also on one night a different babysitter didn't show up so they had to get a last minute person to fill in (an hour later). Again you'd think they would waive the babysitting fee but didn't.
