“Perfect!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Been back eight years in a row. The location and service is fantastic! Beautiful beach. The staff is warm and eager to please. We have no reason to go anywhere else for a beach vacation. We see returning guest every year.

At 6 months pregnant I was still feeling "a bit under the weather" -- I was looking for a place to truly relax and not deal with crowds or chaos. Parrot Cay was exactly what I needed. You feel so transported the moment you get there - calm, serene, amazing facilities, healthy menu items, and a spa that is like heaven on earth. I highly recommend the pre-natal massage! I think it is the ideal place for couples trying to get away, but wouldn't recommend to families or to anyone who wants a lot of activity. Parrot Cay is a place to just decompress and slow down.

Although experienced travellers to high class resorts we were "First timers" to Parrot Cay
The Long journey from London had us wondering would it be worth the effort
in a word absolutely
Our big take home memories will be the amazing healthy Como menu and the Fantastic Yoga Classes with Deborah - Take a bow guys, we have been impressed

Next time we will avoid the US Spring Break as there are a few too many "free" under 12s for our liking but the island is big enough that one can always fine a quiet space like the Boiling Hole Meditation hut.
We are feeling so very relaxed and totally rejuvinated
Thank you form the bottom of our chakras

Parrot Cay - this was our 3rd visit....and 10 days isn’t too long!

So third time back they must be doing something right. Well they are and nature is too.

The location is just amazing. The sand and the sea incredible. There’s nothing to the island - but if you are looking for soft warm sand and a beach where you can walk out 500m and still just be at your tummy - this is it. Look out for the sand dollars and the star fish!

The pool is just great too - we avoid school vacation time so can only guess - but at adult time - after the beach it’s just great.

The rooms. We have stayed in an ocean view room and twice - including this time - in an ocean view suite. The rooms are minimal, clean, fresh and cool. Sadly ‘modern’ rooms are so hard to find in the Caribbean - but this is pretty close.

The food and drink.
The food at The Terrace (Italian / European) has improved significantly since our last visit and we alternated with The Lotus (asian fusion) which overlooks the pool. It now means there really are two good choices. The bar near The Lotus always has a buzz and the bar above The Terrace is always empty and dull. It’s a good space and a real shame it hasn't been utilised - come on Parrot Cay this could be a great bar / tapas (?) area.

The room menu has all the usuals and staff are happy to serve you a burger or caesar salad - or indeed anything they can make for you in either of the restaurants.

One warning on the meal plan - we opted originally for the half board meal plan - but realised that even the most gluttonous traveller couldn't eat enough to justify it - on our 10 day trip we could have ended up paying over $600 more than we did, if we had stayed with the meal plan. After a bit of work the resort agreed to allow us to revert to the B & B rate with meals additional.

Personal touch - the staff are friendly and helpful. Smiles and yes we can do that. However even this resort has its limits - people don’t really remember you and what you like. Being asked everyday for 10 days by the same person whether you would like coffee at breakfast - answer yes but a little later - is a little sad. (See my recent review of 21212 in Edinburgh - asked once on first morning - next day - ‘would you like your coffee a little later?’). But that said, staff do try their best - just think that management has a rather light hand and are not visible.

For UK travellers - do consider going via Miami - if you can bear immigration and customs - as UK flights are limited.

Free Wifi in room and public areas.

The transfers could also do with a bit of a revamp - the boat to and fro from the mainland is great, as is the jetty on the mainland - but the large Suburban people carriers are really a bit naff and on our way out - there were 8 of us crammed in one - liveried as a local taxi firm. At the airport we noticed a white Range Rover pull up - one couple go out - oh that was the Aman! There is competition!

My wife and I spent 4 nights here to get away from it all and relax and be pampered.
This is an amazing property located on its own island on a beautiful stretch of powder white beach.

No rising at 6 a.m. to get a spot in the shade. There are plenty of umbrellas and chairs available any time of day on the beach or at the pool.

Accommodations are either in hotel rooms which consist of small houses each with 4 individual rooms or in villas on the beach.

We stayed in a room. Each has a large balcony, is well appointed and very comfortable. Not over the top luxury but certainly more than adequate for the discerning traveller. No musty Caribbean odours in the bathroom. We were able to sleep with the doors open which is a real treat.

Service is outstanding and extremely friendly. The food is outstanding. Not cheap but portions were large and quality outstanding. There are 2 restaurants to choose from. One is general fare and the other Asian. Both however, also have a Spa menu with healthy choices. Don't be fooled though, the healthy choices were magnificent.
Breakfast is included in room rate and is amazing.
One can choose full board at an additional $150 per person per day but we found we could not eat the large breakfast and 2 additional 3 coarse meals a day.

You can also dine in your room for a minimal flat fee.

The Spa is absolutely beautiful and offers a full range of treatments.

Yoga and Pilates are available daily at no extra charge.

There are hobie cats, windsurfing and other boats available at no extra charge.

WiFi is included.

This is a spectacular property that offers everything top notch. If you want to enjoy being pampered in the caribbean, this is a no brainer.

We will definitely return

Room Tip: There are no second rate rooms.

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.

Room Tip: Look at the resort map before you arrive and ask for a specific block - the hotel do try and accommo...
