The Sands at Grace Bay

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We came for our Honeymoon and couldn't have asked for anything more. We walked in and found a bottle of champagne and welcome card congratulating us on our recent marriage. The room was awesome and included a private screened-in balcony. The kitchen area came stocked with dishes, flatware, microwave, toaster and mini-fridge. There was also a washer and dryer in the room, unexpected bonus. Everything we needed was there.

The hotel grounds were well thought out and beautifully done. Little walkways wind you around the pools, over the lazy river and lead you to the restaurant. There are flowers and trees everywhere. Very short walk to the beach. Once you're there we had our choice of beach huts? (large wooden umbrellas with a table circling the support pole). There was one day where all the spots were already taken so the beach staff helped us set up our own umbrella closer to the water. Then more staff came and took our drink order (Caicos Mama- best drink ever).

We ate multiple meals at Hemingway's, the restaurant located on property. Very easy to find something you liked and every meal was well done. Awesome daily specials and the drinks were awesome. Staff was very attentive. For nights we dined elsewhere, we called the front desk and they set up all the taxis for us. Anything we needed, all we did was ask. Staff made us feel at home. We will be back!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2202. The view looks out over the courtyard and we could see the ocean in the back...

The hotel is low key however the rooms are spacious and clean. The apartments are fully equipped with kitchen and appliances. You can cook a meal and relax on their gorgeous beach. By the way the beach access from this hotel is AMAZING. One of the best beaches on the island. The staff of this hotel is very helpful as well. I recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for second floor rooms if you want some privacy. First floor rooms you can see people walking by...

We love Sands.. It is our second time staying here and I have nothing but positive things to say. The price is good. The staff is very accommodating. The facility is very clean and grounds are immaculate. Hemmingways is our favorite place to eat. There are also free bikes to use. The only word of advice I have is to bring your own hair dryer if your hair is long. The hair dryers are not good at all. ( but that is easy enough to fix) We will definitely be returning!

My husband and I recently stayed at The Sands at Grace Bay. We made our reservations in November of 2013 and although we never got the Building we requested OR the floor we requested, what we did get was fine with us. Just being the 2 of us, we got a Studio and it was very, very nice. Nice screened, enclosed terrace, king bed, small kitchenette, living room area, washer & dryer, bathroom and it was perfect for the both of us. We arrived at The Sands at 11:30 am and could not get into our room until the check-in time, which was 3:00 pm. No problem with us because we changed and headed down to the beach for the afternoon, and had some lunch at Hemmingways. We felt being at The Sands were were right in the middle of wherever we wanted to go whether it was biking to a grocery store or walking into town to go to dinner at night. The building we stayed in was Building #1 and we had an "ovean view" room. It was maybe a minute walk to get to the beach, but you passed by their 2 pools and garden area and it was all very nice. The staff was very friendly, especially the gentlemen at the towel hut, and whomever you asked to set up a few chaises and umbrella for you. Girls at the front desk could be snotty at times, but all in all a great place to stay. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at The Sands again if my husband and I have the opportunity to visit Turks again.

My husband and I enjoyed a week stay at the Sands a few days ago. We stayed in building six for our honeymoon in a studio. We did have a balcony that overlooked the garden/pool area as well as a small portion of the ocean. Our room had a small kitchenette, a comfortable queen sized bed, a sofa, table, and washer/dryer. The room was very clean and modern. The grounds are very well maintained at the resort. The pools are cleaned each morning. I witnessed this each day as I sat on my balcony sipping coffee. There are three pools, two of which are connected by a "lazy river". The main pool by the restaurant seemed the be the most popular due to its view of the beach. Now, the beach is clean and stretches for a long distance. There are a number of umbrellas, chairs, and tiki huts available for use. There are also bicycles, kayaks, hobbie cats, and paddle boards available for guest use for free. Grace Bay is a lovely place to visit. The hotel is in an ideal location, being close to many restaurants and shops within the area. Due to how expensive the taxi's were, my husband and I decided to walk for the majority of our outings. There are taxi's available nearly all the time, if you did need one. The resort caters to all types of people, even children. You can chose to be social or find yourself relaxing in isolation. I would recommend the resort to family and friends.

We have stayed at Sands many times and keep returning. The location of Sands on the beach is very central, making a nice walk down the beach in either direction convenient. The beach area is not crowded and the water is calm. The property has an "island-style" feeling with low-lying structures and screened in porches. The landscape is well cared for with beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers. The staff is friendly, including the men who work down at the beach and help with the water activities. They are always great. The rooms are set up in the "condo style" like the rest of the island where you can shop for some groceries and plan on eating in the room sometimes so you don't have to leave the beach. The grocery store is a short walk away or you can have shuttle service. When planning travels to Turks and Caicos, beach location and the outdoor area is what is really important. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Oceanfront you will see the ocean. Oceanview MAY give you a great view of the ocean, but it may be o...
