My wife and I stayed at the Gansevoort for our late October honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The Gansevoort is a gorgeous resort with a kind, eager to please staff that'll make your stay in Turks and Caicos one to remember. The facilities are pristine, and the smaller setting is rare for most any resort on the island. The outdoor pool is a slice of tranquil paradise and you couldn't ask for a better beach. We loved the Gansevoort as it's perfect for a romantic get-away and I'm counting down the days until I'm able to return.
The first thing you immediately notice about Gansevoort is the bell hop that is just outside the airport in Providenciales. Upon arrival, a Gansevoort representative finds your name on the list of check-ins and tags your luggage for your room. From there, he finds a taxi for you to take to the resort itself. This made for a really easy transition from the airport to the resort and was something my wife and I were grateful for. The greeting at the resort itself is wonderful as well: rum punch for all and cool, moist, lavender scented towels to take the edge off the Caribbean heat.
My wife and I selected a Luxury Oceanfront Spa Studio and were blown away as soon as we walked in to the room. The ocean view was perfect, the decor of the room phenomenal and the bathroom was amazing (rain shower head in the ceiling of the shower, and open wall for a view of the ocean from the tub). A small couch, wonderfully comfortable bed, 24" TV w/DVD player and a Bose Sound Dock completed the room that we had zero complaints about.
The staff at the Gansevoort is top notch from the front desk staff to the cleaning service to the pool attendants (special thanks to Stony who took great care of us at the pool). The staff is incredibly kind, friendly and capable in a way that I have never before seen at a resort anywhere. Everyday we had the most amazing maid service from the staff at the Gansevoort. We loved walking into our straightened, clean smelling room every afternoon. We also enjoyed how friendly the maid service was at every encounter; one staff member went so far as to say "I know you're leaving tomorrow and I just wanted to make sure and tell you 'bye' before you left." This type of kindness in the midst of exceptional service is what we came to know and expect from every employee at the Gansevoort.
The included breakfast buffet was a major bonus, as my wife and I were able to skip lunch just about everyday due to the expansive and delicious options. I was also extremely satisfied with the Concierge service as they steered and assisted us in our every pursuit. The best experience in this regard was a Providenciales Island tour with a local tour/taxi company that the resort set up on an expected rainy-day. I wish every guest could participate in such a tour as it was wonderful for us in getting our bearings, learning about the island, and finding restaurants and points of interests we wanted to learn more about. This was one of the hi lights of our trip and I am so grateful to the Gansevoort for giving it to us.
If I have one negative about the Gansevoort, and I almost hate to write this after the experience we had, it would be our dinner at Stelle the first night of our visit. Stelle is the restaurant within the resort where the breakfast buffet is served and we decided to eat there our first night as they serve lunch and dinner as well. It wasn't that the experience was awful, it just wasn't on par with the rest of the resort. I would strongly advise going to another restaurant for the price of the food leaves you disappointed with the product you eat, and at a similar price you could enjoy an incredible meal at another local restaurant.
Thank you to the entire Gansevoort staff that made our honeymoon as perfect as could be!
