From the moment we entered the gates of this beautiful resort, we could feel this was going to be something extra special. We we're so happily welcomed by the staff, greeted with big warm smiles and everyone made us feel so comfortable after a long, exhausting flight.
Shawnemae made us feel like family greeting us with hugs, gave us a most awesome condo, took exceptionally good care of us and took much extra effort in helping us when needed. The cell phone they provided us with was very thoughtful and useful too. Each condo has an assigned covered parking spot, extra nice to have.
Our condo was W403, gorgeous and the master bedroom, views and sunsets breath taking. As everyone has stated it comes equipped with everything, including exceptional housekeeping, the best tasting local coffee, bottled waters and fresh towels each day.
There was my partner and I from Suprise AZ, my best friend of 30 yrs, her husband from Boston and my sister from NYC, we all meet up together which made this trip even more extra special. Having a bathroom for every room was also a fantastic plus.
Because we read prices were high, we all brought goodies with us to share, such as cheese in the can, crackers, packaged tuna, salmon, mayo, powdered flavored creamers, popcorn, trail mix, dried fruits, breakfast bars, tortillas for wraps, a bottle of our favorite liquor one liter per person if you have check in luggage. So glad we did this.
We rented a car, so glad we did, getting used to driving on the opposite side of the road, took a little getting used to and I advise getting the insurance, just in case. We went with Gracebay rent a car, which gave us great service, but we filled up the tank a mile before we returned car and was accidently charged $90 to fill it up. I called as soon as I saw it on my charge card, they said they made a mistake, had it credited, but 5 days later, I am still waiting for the refund, as soon as that shows up, I'd totally recommend them.
Loved having a full kitchen. We did buy lots of groceries, eggs, bread, huge avacados, onions for guacamole, chips and salsa. We loaded up on Boars head, turkey and provolone, not much higher in price than the states. Also if you like beer, the local Turks Head Amber is great. The local Rum was very good price, I brought that and a rum cake home with me.
So loved the patio, spent lots of time there drinking coffee in the morning (and on the beach), having cocktails with family/friends watching the ocean and awesome sunsets. The patio was so nice and they have fans, a table with 4 chairs and 2 lounge chairs that you could easily sleep out there and the time of year (March 22-29th) we went, the weather couldn't have been better.
The beaches were like a dream, a little piece of Heaven on earth, so beautiful, pristine, peaceful, loved the fact that it felt so private and safe. Loved there was plenty of lounge chairs, umbrellas, floaties and even people came by to ask us if we'd like drinks from the Cabana Grill. Loved the mango smoothie, you gotta try it.
We all went for bike rides, on bikes the Tuscany provided, that was fun too.
Places we enjoyed the most, enjoying every moment we did at the Tuscany, loved having the Cabana Grill next door, The Coral Garden for free snorkeling, Da Conch Shack (a must) the best rum punch (great hospitality from John Wayne and great food), Upstairs Bar and Grill (a hidden gem, great food and service) it's located upstairs from Jimmy's Dive Bar, that was a fun place for an after dinner Saturday night and happy hours, We even went to Casino near by, the best Mia tia's and Mango rum smoothie drink, we even won a little money there and at Jimmy's Dive Bar. Another must is "The Island Scoop" for the best ice cream ever, my favorite was the Rum Raisin, oh what I'd give to have some now.
I have to say, The Tuscany at Grace Bay has the best service, accommodations, beaches and views on the island. Also that this trip I was the happiest I've been in such a long time. None of us wanted to go home, wanted to stay at least another week, our 8 days went way to quickly ~ Priceless!!!
