My wife and I just got back from our first trip to Turks and Caicos. We stayed at the Royal West Indies Resort in a Studio room. Rm# 314. Room contained a King bed, full referidg, microwave, bar size sink, TV etc. Shower/tub in bathroom. Porch had table and 4 chairs. We had a private patio with table and chairs. We were right across from the Mango Reef restaurant.
The first thing we noticed was how quiet it was. Even there there were 3 pools and a hot tub, the place was quiet and relaxing. WE could sit on the porch and watch people as it was semi private with the shrubary, but still had privacy. The gardeners, housekeepers, receptionists, and managers all treated us like we were the only guests they had. Very friendly and always asking what they could do to make out stay better. Awesome.
Turks and Caicos is pricy, but with the use of the hotel bicycle, I was able to ride to the store, pick up supplies and be bacl at tje hotel in 25 minutes. (not bad for a 60 yr old who had not been on a bicycle in 40+ years) My wife and I bout fixins for sandwiches and breakfasts and would dine out in the evening.
The beach had white powder sand. Some of the softest I have ever been on. beautiful. It was easy to walk to other restaurants by wazlking the beach as well. We would go down to the beach around 6:45 pm with cocktails in hand and sit at the tables and listen to the music from Club Med up the beach (awesome live entertainment) when they played for happy hour, and enjoy the sunsets, (and ther were a couple that were some of the best I have ever seen) always looking for the green flash (never saw it) as the sun set.
The we could walk to other restaurants up the beach or back to the Mango Reef (try their fantastic Pizza with Mango on it), for one night we walked up the street to the Coco Bistro (double awesome, pricy, but worth the expense and atmosphere, again treated like the only guests)
All extra activites can be arranced in the hotel lobby. I am a diver and arranged all 11 dives I did with Provo Divers, who picked me up and brought me back after awesome diving each day. My wife a non diver went horseback riding on the beach (somewhere else on the island) and to the conch farm. We went to see the glow worms one night as well.
My wife and I have traveled around the caribbean, mexico, and the pacific. I have 300+ dives around the world, and I would recommend the hotel, diving and all around experiences to all. We continue to try new places all the time, but this is the second place we have both said we would go back to in a heartbeat. (I would go back to Bonaire in a heartbeat as well)
If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, this is the place, WE saw small children there and there is a small pool for them, but we never heard them. All the people we saw and met while there was awesome as well.
We changed from Mexico to Turks and Caicos when we got to the travel agent, and never regretted it one bit. Pricy, but we had a great time.
