What Hotel is right for me?


I'm traveling with my 5 year old son and my mother to Turks and Caicos this November. I've been looking at all the hotels and am not sure which would be the best suited for us. My son and I do like to snorkel. Also, he likes a nice pool. We don't really need a kitchen in our place, as we have no intentions of cooking. My mother can be picky with accomodations. We don't need a high-class place to stay just something that is nice, clean and fun for my son. I stayed here years ago and would like to return to the Grace Bay beach area. A few of the places I was looking at were the Sands and Ocean Club West but I did notice a few reports that both had issues with being dirty. I also looked at RWI and it sounds like alot of people like it here. Well, any help is appreciated! Thanks.

You picked all nice family places in your search. The Sands seems to be the family favorite on this board. The Sands has a great pool and a good restaurant with a childrens menu.

RWI is exceptionally well kept and I would stay there again in a minute. OCW was a bit dated, but we found it nice also, and would stay there as well, plus they have a great patio restaurant overlooking the beach.

Either of those would be good choices, but I can't say enough about how much we liked RWI.

Best of luck, I'm sure you'll have a great trip

I think that you can't go wrong with any of your choices, We have only stayed at the Sands and we loved it. They came twice a day everyday and cleaned our room. In my opinion, I think that any hotel in the tropics is going to have a bit of mold somewere. I think thats what people are complaining about most .

Have a good time.

All of the above would be a good choice.

I think that the Sands would be great for a family travelling with a five year old.
