“It doesn't get any better than this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2011

Hi. Marty & Christine here. We have travelled extensively, especially through the Caribbean and this wil be the very first time we have opted to leave a review. Trying not to repeat all the superlatives in other's reviews, let's try this in point form.

Service......The lovely, warm and oh so talented Christi will move mountains to help ensure your stay at her Blue Horizon Resort will leave you with a lifetime of outstanding memories or, if you chose, she will offer you all the privacy you could ever want.

Cottages....Having had the good fortune to experience 3 of their cottages during our stay, we found each one unique, very comfortable, well-equipped, bright, clean with each offering its own amazing views.

Beach....Clean, near-secluded, fine swimming and snorkeling.

WIth so many islands in the Caribbean for us still to visit, we have already agreed to visit the Blue Horizon in Middle Caicos again next winter. That alone should speak volumes about how wonderful a time we had there.

Stayed February 2011, traveled as a couple

We had a fantastic week! Christy made everything easy, she is extremely service oriented. Spent two days Bonefishing with Tucker. Many large Bonefish there. My wife and two kids enjoyed the stay as well. The perfect place to stay if you want to get away from it all.

I cannot say enough great things about Blue Horizon Resort. We would like to keep the secret to ourselves, but Christi deserves for the world to know about her special gem. My girlfriend and I just came back from a week's vacation at BHR - it was everything we wanted and more. BHR is located on one of the more breathtaking pieces of property in all the world - and we have both travelled extensively. The pictures really do not do it justice. It is simply stunning. On top of that, Christi runs an eco-resort which is geared toward rest and relaxation. If you are looking for a more traditional resort -- the pool, the restaurants, the room service, and the crowds -- this place is not for you. If you are looking to "step off the grid", enjoy an amazing view, enjoy a beautiful beach that you will likely have all to yourself for long stretches of time, and generally get away from the world, then this is the place you are looking for. Christi is an amazing host, very personable, ready to do whatever she can to make your stay enjoyable - but also happy to leave you alone if that is what you want. Very clean, bright accomodations with everything you would need to take care of yourself. Using fresh seafood Christi has access to, we cooked ourselves some amazing meals and enjoyed the solitude that this undeveloped island provides. Additionally, we were able to explore the island at our leisure, finding some amazing trails and beaches. We did make it back over to Provo for a day to go diving, but were happy to head back to the peacefulness of Middle Caicos at the end of the day. Overall - an amazing place.

Blue Horizon Resort - We spent two nights at the BHR in Middle Caicos. First off, if you plan to visit and spend at least one night in Middle Caicos you WILL need to rent a car, purchase food and supplies beforehand since the island has like one store and a couple of restiarants with a limited menu. With that said, Middle Caicos not to be missed if you visit TCI and if you plan to stay multiple nights BHR is THE place.
 
The location is breathtaking to say the least. It is one of the few places that I have been that exceeded any prior expectations and pictures do it little justice. BHR is located overlooking a cliff that leads to a spectacular stretch of beach that seems almost deserted. We could count on one hand the number of people we saw while laying out on the beach one of the days. It wad like we had the place to ourselves. Along the beach there are these amazing caves that are postcard quality. My description will not do the
Justice...it's one if those things where one needs to experience firsthand. 

Christi and Dallas are the new owners and it was very evident that they take pride in this place. All cottages come equipe with full kitchen, TV, WIFI and a very comfortable bed with million dollar ocean views. We found the cottages to be very clean with imsolated very well to keep the critters out. If you are looking for an excursion, Christi Dallas have a wealth of knowledge of the area and would be able to help you book a tour. Like I said, if you plan to stay in Middle this is the nicest place on the island. And if you can only do a daytrip, still visit them for the caves and beaches. 

With that said, BHR/Middle Caicos is not for everyone it is NOT what you would expect if you are comparing it to Provo. There are only a couple of restaurants, one liquor store on the island and very secluded in comparison to Provo. You will need to have your own groceries since the nearest store is about 40-minutes away from BHR. People that venture here should expect nature and tranquility as top priorities on their agenda. If you want four-star restaurants and clubs, then stay in Provo and keep this a hidden gem!

I'm a little slow with this review since we were there in March 2010, but it was a great trip so I thought I'd post some comments. BHR is on a stunningly beautiful spot and is impeccably run.

Rooms: Lovely cottages with comfortable beds and furniture. Not perhaps the most plush and luxurious but well maintained, clean, modern, and appropriate for tropical conditions. No AC but you don't need it as the trade winds blow most of the time and ceiling fans cover the lulls. Views all stunning.

Beach: Spectacularly beautiful! Certainly one of the top ones I've been too. Mostly deserted. It's a short walk down a rocky path from the cottages. It is a public beach and small tour groups occasional show up but they don't stay very long and by late afternoon you have it pretty much to yourself. Water is swimmable for adults, could be a little rough for kids, especially little ones. Snorkling was only mediocre. Most of nearby reefs were bleached and dead. Best snorkling in T&C is a bit offshore is my understanding. No water sports right here to speak of.

Food/Dining: Cottages have kitchens and Christi and Dallas will stock them to your specs on request. Use their grocery service! This is necessity since there are almost no restaurants nearby and no grocery stores. We cooked in for all breakfasts, most lunches, and most dinners. There are two restaurants close by on Middle Caicos and both had excellent food, but VERY limited menus (like one or two options), weren't open every night, were on the expensive side, and might be a bit more "island" than some people might expect. The lady who owned Sapadilly's at the old airport would kick the loud boisterous local domino players out when we came in to dine. It made us a little uncomfortable but no one seemed to mind and the food was good and everyone was friendly. North Caicos has a few dining options too which are worth the drive perhaps for a change of scene, but it's a good 1/2 hour drive up there and coming back on dark bumpy roads was exciting. There are NO grocery stores of any size on North or Middle Caicos. There were a number of very sparsely stocked convenient stores and a liquor store. Supposedly there was a government farm where veggies and fruit were available but we were never able to find it.

Very few places take credit cards and there are no ATMs. Bring a substantial amount of cash.

Activities: All about the outdoors. Swimming is great, though rough at BHR. We rented a car from Dallas and Christi (recommended for at least a day or two unless you really just want to sit and do nothing) and explored other beaches, some of which are calm enough for you kids, though all are fairly remote. Dallas set us up with kayaks one day and we happily spent a few lovely hours paddling amongst the mangroves nearby. Saw turtles, a colony of willets, lots of other birds, beautiful calm water. Well worth it and easily set up. I believe diving, snorkling, and fishing boat trips can all be arranged. With a small child, we didn't try any of that. There were some hiking trails that we explored a bit that lead over rocky points and past overgrown caves. Sturdy shoes required and best avoided in the heat of the day but early morning and later afternoon on these paths were really special.

Management: Impeccable! Dallas and Christi were phenomenal hosts. They're working really hard to upgrade and improve BHR and will do their best to accommodate your needs and requests. Lovely people and great managers!

Crime/Safety - Didn't seem to be an issue for us, though we heard stories of the occasional petty theft from vehicles. BHR itself was extremely safe and we had no issues. But be aware that this is an underdeveloped island and there is poverty which you will see as you drive around. Generally not abject poverty, but many people don't have a lot here. We drove around and visited the villages and never had a problem or were concerned. But it pays to be respectful, keep a modest profile, and be aware of the vast gap between what we have in most of the US and what was here.

We picked up an older lady who was hitchhiking between towns one day and she seemed a little surprised that tourists would stop for her and a bit reserved at first. But she told us some amazing stories of growing up on North Caicos as a little girl 70-80 years ago. It was quite special that she was willing to share that with us.

Summary: BHR is a really unique and beautiful place. It's not for everyone as it is truly truly isolated. Far and away the most isolated and undeveloped place I've been in the Caribbean. This can be a plus or minus depending on your tastes. For us it was great. But don't be deceived by the Middle and North Caicos websites. These islands are not anywhere near as developed as they are made out to be; like night and day compared to Provo. Again this cuts both ways depending on your desires. If you really want to get away and have no interest in nightlife and overdeveloped resorts, this is the place for people with a sense of adventure and desire to experience a less modern island vacation; just don't expect the full range of luxury services and be ready to slow your pace down and adjust to island lifestyle and you'll have a great time.

If you are looking for lights, glitz, loud nightlife or casinos in a resort, stop reading now.

But if you are interested in peaceful, relaxing, natural beauty read on........Blue Horizon Resort was everything we hoped for. Our first few days we had this beautiful beach below the cottage to ourselves. Our Sunrise cottage was neat and very comfortable, but it is the view that really stands out. The deck and front windows overlook Dragon Cay which is a short distance off the beach. On the first day, the sandbar leading from the beach to the Cay at low tide allowed us to walk to the cay without getting our feet wet. Over the 2 weeks we stayed, the sand shifted daily with the tides and the waves. At the end we had to wade the last 30 feet to the Dragon. The water is as beautiful as their website shows. We watched the waves crash on and over the Dragon on windy days. It was like mother nature's fireworks!! We never tired of watching the changing waves, sand and beach.

Besides the view, we took kayaks out 2 days in through the mangroves and out around the end of the island where we saw rays, turtles and a variety of sea birds. The kayaks can be propelled by a bicycle mechanism and/or with the paddle. This was so much fun that we stayed out 4 hours. Another day we rode the bikes all around the island for a total of 26 miles. We hiked the Crossing Place trail and saw one isolated beach after another. The beaches are beautiful, but unfortunately the amount of trash washed up is incredible. Mudjin Beach below the resort has been kept clean (we tried to do our part to pick up trash on our daily beach walks).

Middle Caicos has very few people and very few options for eating. Daniel's was very good and we had food from Dillion's delivered. Otherwise we cooked for ourselves. Christie and Dallas had lobster we could buy and they had us fully stocked with the pre-arranged grocery list we sent. There are no corner 7-11's or fast food to drop in as desired, but this is just what we wanted.

Christi and Dallas (and Allie) were perfect hosts! All we had to do was ask and they provided a car, bikes, kayaks, fins, food, etc. We were able to request fresh locally baked bread and additional food as needed and it would show up the next day.

We highly recommend Blue Horizon Resort for those that want independence, relaxation and a quiet, beautiful destination!

Blue Horizon is unlike any place I have ever been to. I have been to many islands in the Caribbean and the water is the most gorgeous here. The land features are so unique and it truly is a a magical place. This is the perfect place to relax on your own private beach..no crowds..just pure bliss.
It is a hidden gem and I hope others get to see how amazing this place is.

Christi and Dallas were very welcoming and so helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. We rented sea kayaks from them and got to see so much marine life in the mangroves. It was incredible!

I cannot say enough good things about Blue Horizon and I will definitely be back again next year.
