“Le vel E...E for Excellent !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

So everyone pronounces it Level E.

There are certain givens about Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales: Perfect weather is near guaranteed. It's super clean (and what tiny bits of seaweed there are each resort sweeps and buries....manually or with never seen tractors) with super soft white sand, a very very gentle surf and miles of it for the proverbial "long romantic walks on the beach"! Such guarantee, of course comes with a handsome price tag.....but you get what you pay for.

So reading TA, Le Vele sounded just like what I wanted and they deliver. A handsome, sea facing (OK if you get a ground level accommodation you don't quite see the sand...but we were on the second floor and it was just fine), elegant, well located, QUIET, hands off, comfortable and restful stay. With a child unfriendly pool...it's about 5 feet deep end to end....no little swing set, etc...no restaurant...kids are the exception and so is noise. I often felt there were only 4 or 6 other people staying here. There's no pressure to do anything, which is exactly what we did. And yet the supermarket and several restaurants are near enough to meet your needs. And the supermarket, with its $4.79 cans of Progresso soup and $23 suntan lotions is an amusement park of a different kind.

For 7 years old the accommodations are great and holding up well. Quality of construction is obvious and daily tending keeps the place neat and elegant. The 2 bedroom apartment we had was elegant and very well furnished. Was it the model 7 years ago? The small pool facing balcony of the second bedroom had an outdoor fan...the only one. The outdoor and indoor furniture was top quality....though a touch up with a brown marker would do well hiding the occasional scuff marker. And the beds were heaven: thick pillow top mattresses that were the right combo of firm and felt like a cloud. The odd mattress cover/ sheet/ cotton blanket/ fitted sheet bottom layer was odd but likely protective and added to the comfort. Housekeeping was invisible and efficient. The jetted tub (even the "studios" have one) and Acca Kappa amenities were delicious. The front desk was pleasant and efficient. The DVD library well stocked. Oh and the bikes and kayaks are there for when you want.

Final note: while Provo is expensive, look carefully at Le Vele's website terrific value added promo. I don't think occupancy rates and the Real Estate boom are what everyone would like you to believe.

Room Tip: Gound floor lacks sand/ view.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

This was our first trip to Turks. We were looking for a quiet, upscale, relaxing place and we found it. Everything was beautiful. The views were incredible. The staff was wonderful. We used the bikes several times to visit the grocery store (expensive!). We found the location to be perfect for what we wanted. We took lots of long walks. Getting to restaurants was no problem either -- plenty in walking distance. We will stay here every time we return without our kids. Might have to find something else when we bring them -- although it will be HARD to give Le Vele up! A wonderful fruit, juice and bagel basket was delivered each morning -- such a nice touch and PLENTY of food! Pool is gorgeous too. Weight room is small but functional if you need a quick weight workout. Best vacation ever!!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the higher floors for the best view.

Le Vele was a great condo/hotel. The staff was extremely accommodating; Alexio and Michelle know their stuff and helped us a great deal. The hotel is in a good location where you can walk to several restaurants. One of the more quiet hotels on Grace Bay. I can't wait to go back!

We had a truly relaxing vacation. The resort is beautiful and centrally located along Grace Bay. We easily walked to restaurants and the grocery store. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They set up chairs with umbrellas every morning on the beach, and they make sure that there are plenty of towels and water bottles available. The beach was absolutely gorgeous. We will definitely return to Grace Bay and would love to stay at Le Vele again.

This is a quiet, beautiful place to take a vacation. We would definitely go back to Le Vele. The staff were great, the accommodation was clean and modern--we really enjoyed the condo and the grounds. It is for vacationers who want a beach, a pool, and tranquility. The simple fruit, juice, and croissant or bagel breakfast delivered to the room daily was a nice touch. The resort is very conveniently located, with just a short walk to restaurants and about a 10 minute walk to a large grocery store. It is not the place for those who want a full service, all inclusive vacation, those who want to party, or who want to drop their kids at activities.

Le Vele was a perfect choice for us, quiet, great views, spacious 1 bedroom. We need to thank Val at Turks and Caicos Reservations for the suggestion and booking. With only 25 units, we were usually the only ones at the pool or maybe 1 or 2 others at the beach. This strip of beach is not nearly as crowded (relative term for Grace Bay) as other places. The Mansions is on the east and a vacant lot and Point Grace on the west, so even on Grace Bay you can feel like you have a private beach. The infinity edge pool was very nice and the entire pool area was very private and relaxing. Each end of the pool had a shade structure and bbq grill. The service is very polite and low key. They set up beach chairs and umbrellas and will leave towels and bottled water for you. They also deliver breakfast every morning to your room. It was usually a bagels or english muffins, juice and lots of fruit. The inside of the unit is top notch. Nicely furnished with a full kitchen. We cooked in alot so that was very usefull. The main reason we chose Le Vele was the price, view and the patio. For a 1 bedroom the oceanFRONT rooms had great views and the patio was big enough for a 6 person dining table and a lounge chair. The view and patio size were much better than other 1 bedrooms we looked at. We will definately return and recommend this place to any one looking for peace and quiet. (We just hope it doesn't get to well known) This place feels like a hidden gem.

I just returned from a weeks stay at Le Vele. I was extremely pleased with the accommodations and the location is second to none. Our condo was beautifully appointed and quite spacious. Le Vele is located right in the center of Grace Bay and faces north, right into the white sand and crystal clear blue waters of the south Atlantic. The view is breath taking!

This is the place you stay if you are looking to get away from the hustle, bustle and general noise in your daily life. While there, we were never quite certain if there were any other guests staying there. It was so quiet that the stress just melted away.

But it was when we were looking for activity that made Le Vele shine. General Manager Clayton Thomas and his staff are truly the concierge extraordinaire! Upon my first request, Clayton said, "Just tell me what you want, and I will make it happen". that pretty much sums up the level of service they provide - personal, anticipatory and caring.

Clayton personally took our requests for activities, proposed an itinerary and scheduled all the activities. Most of the time, we were picked-up right on the beach. The activity providers he recommended were all top notch. We even went back to a couple of them for a "second round" before the week was out.

While on the island, I pulled a muscle in my back. Clayton and his staff found and scheduled a chiropractor appointment, and sent massage therapists to my condo. While one of the therapists worked on my back, another gave a facial to my 11 year old daughter.

The staff really helped me get back into shape so that we could enjoy the rest of the weeks' stay. I truly cannot say enough about Le Vele and the personal service provided by Clayton and his staff. They are truly remarkable! I guess the best way to sum it up is to say that we cannot wait until our return to Turks and more specifically to Le Vele.
