“Fantastic beach location but with a few flaws”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This should really be a 3 1/2 star review. I agree with the previous reviewer to be aware of the positives and negatives. I'm giving 4 stars for the corner suite; I would give the regular studio room 2 stars.

The positives.
--The beach is amazing. The location is central. You can walk to town and buy groceries. We walked on the beach to go to restaurants for dinner.
--We were upgraded to a suite which was a lovely surprise. Compared to the suites, the studio room needed major renovations/upgrade.
--The well-equipped kitchen was also great to have especially if you're staying for a longer period of time.

The negatives:
--The lack of a restaurant/service on the beach is a bummer. I didn't think I'd miss having someone ask me if I wanted a drink while lounging, but it would've been nice to have that amenity.
--The hotel should invest in an ice machine. If you don't have a kitchen in your room, you'd have to walk to town to get ice.
--The pool area is ok. You come here for the beach.
--We were on the 4th floor and they didn't clean our room until late in the afternoon.

Overall, if you're here for a quick break (as we were), it's a good place to stay considering the location and assuming you've booked yourself in one of the corner suites.

Room Tip: Book one of the corner suites.

After carefully researching options on Provo we chose Le Vele because it is small, quiet and was less money than many of the other "hotels". All rooms face the ocean, so the views are dazzling. Location is good, you can walk to many restaurants and shops.
We stayed in a studio room - for price and because we were not interested in having a full kitchen. The picture of the room on the website shows a small couch as well as the bed, we had a small table with 2 small chairs. There was no comfortable seating in the room other than the bed. The "kitchen" area was actually a cart at the door hallway when you enter the room. It was unappealing, cart had stains on it. Breakfast delivered to your room looks like airline food - bagel, croissant wrapped in plastic, apples or bananas and juice in small plastic containers.
As for the beach - there are chairs, but not necessarily umbrellas. When there are umbrellas, they are the smaller type and don't provide much shade.
Service - after reading reviews of Le Vele we expected much more than we got. My husband
needs to be in shade at the beach, so having an umbrella is important. The first time there weren't
umbrellas at the beach we asked and were told they would take care of it - they didn't. Second time, same thing. Third time, spoke to Clayton who said it was because of the wind. He did have one put in and said he would make sure it would be done everyday - it wasn't. Every other hotel had umbrellas on the beach, so we ended up at one of them.
We told them not to bring breakfast at all, they still did and times varied from day to day.
Overall, service was adequate but nothing more than that.
Although we didn't think we would mind not having an on site restaurant, we did. Yes, there are some near by but that means always having to go off site.

Room Tip: Higher floor for the view

Just returned from a wonderful long weekend in TCI, staying at Le Vele. The hotel is clean, quiet, peaceful, and right on Grace Bay. Perfect if you are looking for a relaxing place to get away. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Full kitchen for cooking and getting a drink just steps from the beach. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Room 301- East. Great room and great view!

There were so few reviews of Le Vele that I was a bit leery booking our trip, but Val (Turks and Caicos Reservations) was right again. This was the perfect spot for my husband, niece and me. We loved that it was a small complex and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful--and Clayton is the best! There were also several condo owners we met and they all were very friendly and helpful. We stayed for a week in a 2 bedroom condo (gorgeous) and it had everything we needed, including a blender. Breakfast was included (one day bagels, another croissants and another English Muffins, with bananas, apples and pears every day) and you could choose the time you wanted it delivered. The beach is gorgeous and you don't have to get up early to save any chairs. There were times we were the only ones on the beach! The location is close enough to walk to restaurants, shops and snorkeling at Coral Gardens. We rode the bikes to the grocery store to stock up. If I had to come up with one suggestion, it would be to have snorkel gear available for guests. We would definitely stay at Le Vele again.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor to get a view of the water.

Le Vele was amazing. We much preferred staying here to one of the bigger resorts. You can walk from Le Vele to a bunch of different restaurants, or go to the supermarket and fish market to get your own food to cook up in your kitchen. The beach out the front is gorgeous.

We stayed for a week and enjoyed our stay. Our room was a second story one bedroom and it was they most well equipped room we have every stayed in - especially the kitchen. Everything seemed new and was always kept clean. The view from the large terrace is great as the building is closer to the sands then some other resorts along the beach. The beach - while not the widest stretch - was wide enough so that there was plenty of room between you and the beach walkers. The pool is large, especially given the small size of the complex. It was also very quiet and well equipped with comfortable padded loungers along with umbrellas. Towels were always available as was bottled iced water - nice touch. We used one of the two gas grills that are located under a gazebo near the pool. They had a nice sitting area there too so you could get comfy while grilling. All of our requests - resturant reservations, wake up call etc. were handled without a hitch thanks to Alexio and Michelle and Clayton took care of business - easy like Sunday morning. I don't think Le Vele is for everyone because it doesn't have a restaurant or bar but that is also what keeps it so quiet and not busy - just what we were looking for.

Le Vele occupies one of the finest locations on Grace Bay. It is a small 22 unit complex located far enough from the bigger resorts to be peaceful yet close enough that you can easily walk to various restaurants and near-by spas. The beach out front is always quiet and the pool is nearly empty most of the day. It is so easy to lose yourself in your thoughts and relax.

This was our second stay at Le Vele and it was even better than we remembered. Room E203 is a lovely 2 bedroom/2.5 bath corner unit with a covered terrace, full kitchen and washer/dryer. It provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. The only negative to the condo is a lack of good reading lighting. Perhaps it is just my 50 year old eyes but in the evenings there was a noticeable lack of light for reading or doing puzzles.

The staff is very accommodating and go out of their way to make the stay perfect in every way, Truly a special group of people that want to share the beauty of the island with you!
