Coming from snowy Toronto, Ontario, anywhere with sun is welcoming... it was the tranquil garden and refreshing pools that made the Villa Del Mar extra special. Set back about 100 steps from the beach, it was a calmer and quieter place - the perfect place to sip a signature rum punch and take in the relaxing sunshine with a great book.

If you didn't want to sit poolside, each of the rooms were provided with a private balcony, over looking the pool and garden- the balcony was large enough to accommodate my morning Yoga routine without interruption - it was so peaceful! Was just as lovely with the breeze but with a little more privacy. That being said, you had everything you could have needed right in your own condo. I had a fridge, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker. I walked to the local grocery store (under 10 minutes away by foot) and stocked up on local fruits, fresh veggies and some snack foods for lunches. It was nice to have that option - not having to leave the room every time you were hungry!!! Grocery store was relatively priced to Canadian prices ... maybe a little more - nothing outrageous.
The beds were perfectly comfortable and the sheets ... I cannot stop going on about the sheets. After being in the sun all day, the last thing you want are scratchy sheets. These sheets felt as if they were made of butter. So soft, cool and cozy. It was the perfect bed to climb into after a long, hot day.

The washroom had both a stand-up rain shower and a deep soaker tub - I used both. Rain shower was incredible... just the right pressure of water and enough room to move around. The tub was great after my paddleboarding expedition... you lose yourself in the relaxation of taking a bath with the windows open and the warm breeze coming in at you - true bliss.

Though there is no restaurant on-site at the Villa Del Mar, it encourages you to go and explore the local cuisine that the island has to offer. There are over 75 restaurants on the island - everything from fish tacos and beer to fine dining places. There is something for everyone - or whoever you decide to be that day!
Take it all in, enjoy the peace and quiet at the Del Mar with steps to the rest of the island - it's magnificent!

Paradise in the heart of the Gracebay area, it doesn't get any better than this. Best value ever!! As a diehard traveler I've been to many places around the world and this is at the top of my list of MUST DO OVER, which i've done with my family, hubby and friends. Villa del Mar is located in the greatest location that a car isn't necessary. Shopping, casino and great restaurants all within walking distance. The best and friendliest staff. Only a short walk to a beautiful Private beach area with the happiest cabana boys ever. Towels, chairs and Umbrellas all waiting for you. Outdoor BBQ's for the nights you just want to hang out by the pool and hot tub. Great Family boutique hotel! Feels like your own backyard. Already planning my/our next trip down.

Room Tip: Penthouse great for families! Very roomy and everyone has their space. All the conveniences of home...

On my 3rd visit to Providenciales, I decided to stay at Villa del Mar. I was a bit hesitant at first because I was told it's not on the beach. I was expecting a long walk, but surprisingly it only took about 60 seconds to walk from my room to the beach. Upon arrival, I was greeted by friendly staff and free rum punch (which is amazing). The front desk agents were able to answer any questions I had, and made some great restaurant & tour recommendations. I stayed on the ground floor in Building B (I would recommend a ground floor room as its such a short walk to the pool - which is one of the resort's best amenities). All our special needs were met - e.g. extra towels & a baby crib. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone looking for 5 star service, without the 5 star price. It's the perfect getaway!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are great if you want quick access to the pools / bar.

A well appointed studio condo with bougainvillaea flowers adorning the king size bed welcomed us from our bone chilling Ottawa winter to the tropical breezes of the Turks and Caicos. Our Villa del Mar unit was very spacious with a large washroom, ample seating areas, kitchenette with dining area and a large balcony overlooking one of the two pools. VDM staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and courteous. We could easily choose between dining in nearby resorts and restaurants or prepare our own light meals in the condo by just walking a short distance to the food market for some daily provisions. VDM's close proximity to the beaches of Grace Bay were a highlight for us as we could easily access the beach for our long morning walks. Our second stay at VDM and it will certainly not be the last.

We are back in paradise and once again we are beyond thrilled. The accommodations and service for a small boutique hotel are amazing. We are greeted by waves, hugs and smiles, not to mention the most comfortable lounge chairs by the pool and a pristine beach with turquoise water that changes colors constantly.
You will no find a more comfortable accommodation and the price is very fair. We have recommended many guests and they too love it and continue to return.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very quiet and have the same views so it really doesn't matter, which is a plu...

Villa del mar is a small resort full of potential. Just behind the awesome Grace bay club, Villa del mar is 2 minutes away from the beach when you walk at the turk and caicos pace!!! Its a very quiet place but sometimes you will hear some cars passing by the street a few meters away from the pools but remember that you didnt pay for a beachfront resort. There is no restaurant at villa del mar but you will find nice places to eat at walking distance. There is a superstore 10 minutes away and 3 minutes away if you drive. The complimentary breakfast meet the needs of everyone: oranges, bananas, bread, cereals, oatmeal, juice, milk and coffee. There is also some daily fresh pastries coming from the Caicos bakery. The staff responsable to clean the Condo units are very friendly and the barman is simply amazing. Butt, villa del mar need to fix some issues that are annoying. The 2 BBQ are dirty and smelly, sorry to say this like that but its the way it is. The tiles under the BBQ are also dirty so you can expect a few insects around. Behind the BBQ, you will find some fresh herbs but its just not the way it should be at a resort like this. There is also 3 tables if you want to eat by the pool but two of them are made of wood and always dirty. Could be easier to clean if they would be cover by something. Finally, if you wake up early (7:30) you can expect to see empty bottles of beer around the pool with towels on the chairs. They clean the resort in the morning and not at night. This is a bit disappointing.

Room Tip: Corner units get more sun on their patio.

7 of us stayed at Villa Del Mar recently. We rented a 2 bedroom unit with an attached 1 bedroom. Plenty of room for 3 teens and 4 adults to relax. The location is perfect, a very short walk to the one of the nicest spots on Grace Bay. It also a short walk to plenty of nice restaurants and a grocery store. We felt this was a very safe island relative to other Caribbean islands we have travelled to. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spotless with high quality amenities. The pool area was never over crowded and so relaxing. We would definitely return!
