Reviewed July 25, 2013

We found Villa del Mar at the last minute, after a planned rental in Providenciales turned out to be...not as advertised, to put it mildly. Surfing the net, we found a great deal on a 2-BR condo at Villa Del Mar, and immediately booked and checked in. (Fortunately, this is low season and there was lots of availability.) We selected Villa del Mar for its location, space and price and we couldn't have been more pleased. The front desk staff is extremely gracious and helpful, the grounds and pool are lovely. We enjoyed their complimentary welcoming rum punch at the bar. A304 is a corner unit, light and spacious, with a full kitchen. While Villa Del Mar is not right on the beach, it is a very short walk, with all the beach amenities available. On an island where prices can be outrageous, this is a good option, with the space of a condo, amenities of a resort, located near shops and restaurants, quiet and beautifully maintained.

My teenage sons and I spent 8 nights at the Villa del Mar. We had a 2 bedroom on the 3rd floor. As other reviewers have said, the hotel was spotless, the staff was very pleasant, the full kitchen was invaluable, and it was extremely lose to the beach. The only difference between this hotel and those directly on the beach was, I believe, the size of the swimming pools. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the sofa bed in the living room was a bit springy.

I have to give a special shout out to the Villa del Mar and its general manager, Tendra, who couldn't have been nicer. When my son became dehydrated from the heat and activity, she not only sent a car to pick us up from the hospital but even offered to let a driver use her own car.

My husband and I spent one week from June 8-15 and would highly recommend this lovely resort. We had a beautiful studio room on the third floor. The room is beautifully decorated, spacious, very clean, really great toilettries and private balcony. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, pools are lovely and the beach is a very short walk. It is across the street and takes about two minutes before you arrive in the turquoise ocean. Continental breakfast has plenty to offer...coffee, juice, fruit, cereal, assorted breads, bagels and delicious pastries.

The staff is wonderful. Liesel, you are a gem and VDM is fortunate to have you at the front to greet the guests. You are truly lovely, professional, pleasant. You took such great care of us and everyone that I saw you interact with. Such attention to detail and all of the recommendations you made were perfect.....I could go on and on. We would like to send a very big thank you to Pedro, Captain Bill and Kerone and Lerone who will take great care of you at the beach. Fingers was recommended through VDM and he is he best taxi driver. He is polite, punctual and his van is spotless. Thanks to the fellow who took our luggages to the room and the housekeeping staff for doing a great job.

The pictures reflect the beauty of VDM. Turks and Caicos is paradise. We definitely, highly recommend VDM.

We decided to spend our annual Girls Trip in Turks and Caicos. When deciding where to stay we trurned to Tripadvisor for recommendations. The reviews by prior guests could not be more spot on. There were 7 of us so we rented the 3 bedroom unit. It worked perfectly. The living space was simply gorgeous. It was clean, modern and just felt like a beachside home away from home. The staff members were super nice and attentive. Contiental breakfast is provided every morning but it is a bit limited/scarce. Not many options. Also, you must get there early in order to have access to what options they do have. Once it is gone, it's gone. Though the property is not directly on the beach, it is just a hop, skip and jump away from the white sands of Grace Bay Beach. We highly recommend this property!

Turks and Caicos is a pricey place...but my husband and I are very happy we found Villa del Mar for our honeymoon. We loved having a condo with a full kitchen for a week. Lots of space with a great balcony. Just a very short walk to the beach (the little walk is very much worth it for how much you save over hotels that are right on the beach). The employees were very helpful and kind. There is no restaurant at the hotel but with sooooo many great restaurants on the island, that was no problem. We wouldn't have wanted an all-inclusive where you would feel guilty eating anywhere else. If you don't try the local food, you are really missing out! Great resorts with spas are in walking distance if you are interested in that. Very pleased!!

We have just returned from a week at Villa del Mar. We rented a 3 BR unit which is essentially a 2+1BR lockoff. We liked the configuration as we could put the kids 3 - 13, 10, 8) on one side and have some privacy but still open access across units. The unit worked perfect.

The unit is not on the beach but is literally a 2 minute walk. As others have said, the guys at the beach are great and will get you hooked up on any excursions that you want to take.

We were easily able to walk to Coco Bistro, Caicos Cafe, Via Veneto, Upstairs Cafe, Seven, and Caicos Bakery to eat, among others.

The breakfast is a true continental, but functional. We went to the bakery many days.

The reasons we rate Villa del Mar so highly are as follows:

1. Great setup of room
2. Great beach setup with towels, chairs, umbrellas provided.
3. Nice pools with a low volume of people.
4. Unbelievable location in the middle of all the nicest restaurants.
5. Love daily maid service. If you time share, you forget how nice that is.
6. Great price. Walk across the street and your price easily doubles for the view. Go to Sandals and the price gets crazy, and you end up staying on site and not enjoying all that there is to do on the island.

We usually spring for the high dollar hotel, but, in reading the reviews for Villa del Mar, we felt like we could get a good spot to stay and still explore the island. We feel like we did.

Not so good things? My only criticisms would be the following:

1. Breakfast is free and advertised as continental, but it is basic. Don't expect much.
2. They need to stock more pool towels. We had 2 occasions where they were out.

All in all, we loved our stay. I would do it all over again and save the money to stay here versus the other places we saw as we went for dinner, etc. Great hotel for the price.

Villa del Mar is across the street from the beach and such a perfect location. No beach views, but you also don't pay for them, like you would across the street. Much better value for what it is.
We went during the down time of the year, so we probably avoided some of the hustle and bustle anyway, but VdM is just quiet and smaller which we really liked. It made our trip much more relaxing and romantic.
Also it is in a great part of the beach, we walked several miles down the beach and when you get close to one of the big all-inclusive family resorts (Sandals, maybe?) the beach gets to be about 20' of sand and is just full of people. At VdM the beach is 100' of sand and it's spacious. VdM also has umbrellas and chairs by the beach with full bar service which was great.
Would absolutely stay here again.
