Late with my review. Stayed here in July 2012. Having never been to T&C before we had no idea what to expect so despite going for 2 weeks we only booked the first week at Parrot Cay and decided we would visit Grace Bay and find a different hotel for our second week. Parrot Cay met us at the airport and having not booked a private transfer we had to wait in the van for other guests to arrive. This was a bit disorganised, hot and no drinks were offered. However, once we arrived at the dock you wait to set off in a lovely air con building where there are refreshments and cold towels. You are then taken by boat to the island - approx 35 mins and you are met in a golf buggy and taken to reception for checkin and a rum punch - yum.
We had a garden view room, we could see the sea in the distance so I doubt the ocean view are too different. Room is all white and blue furnishings, rustic colonial rather than luxurious but very comfortable. It's all very quiet in the evenings so don't go here if you want to party. However, if you want to completely chill out this is the place to be.
Food is very good, we started off with full board but switched to half board when we realised it was too much. Staff on the whole are very good although of course some were laid back to the point of unprofessional and sometimes even a tad sullen. Service can also be a bit hit and miss, breakfast forgotten, 30 mins to bring a drink etc.
The spa is excellent - we had fantastic massages from Siki (sorry might have spelt that wrong). Also had constations and sessions with Dr Pradeep as well as doing the Yoga etc - all very very good.
Beach is beautiful with clear aqua water, likewise pool area is great - lots of comfy beds to lounge on.
In the end having hopped on the boat to Grace Bay and seen a beach with paragliding and banana boats all over the place we dashed straight back to the comfort of PC and asked to stay another week - luckily enough they could accommodate us.
Parrot Cay is truly a place for relaxation and refreshment. The only thing I would say is why on earth do people bring children here? Bythe end of our second week there were too many destroying the peace and quiet and charging about the pool area (they would do better in Grace Bay) shame.
