Expensive but worth it. We travelled with our 11 year old and 1 year old.
Upon arriving in Turks & Caicos, we were greeted at the airport and whisked away to paradise. We arrived at the resort earlier than the check-in time, but to our surprise, our room was ready and waiting (despite the resort being at full occupancy due to spring break). On that note, we wouldn't have suspected that the resort was full because we certainly didn't feel crowded or had to stand in any lines for anything all week.
Our room was in the Italian Village, and we would definitely book the same room again. Our room attendants, Valeri and Ryant were fabulous, friendly and hard working. They did an excellent job every day at keeping our room comfortable and very clean. They made us feel very welcome and it was nice to see their smiles each day.
The overall service was fantastic. The restaurants were superb. The best part about the trip was that each family member had a relaxing and fun vacation.
Our 11 year old loved the water park, the video game "garage", the swim-up kids' bar, the pizza, and the ice cream shop at Bobby Dee's. We brought our 1 year old to the nursery a few times. Kay and Bev took care of our little Ashley very well and she was smiling and laughing each time we'd return to pick her up.
The nightly entertainment was hilarious (snap), and we all enjoyed the shows, especially the kids' talent show.
We took a trip snorkeling at the reef one morning which was well-organized and alot of fun. We would definitely do that again. It is a 3-minute catamaran to the reef to snorkel for 30 mintues and there is no additional cost to go.
The Sesame Sail-Away was also enjoyable with Elmo and friends.
The beach is well kept but we preferred to stay by the pool most days.
The restaurants were great. We had Chef Taylor at the Japanese restaurant Kimono's, and he was very entertaining and created a wonderful meal for us. Le Petit Chateau was a lovely restaurant, too, with really great food and service.
All that being said, we are excited to book again for next year. Thanks, Beaches!

Having vacationed at Sandals Grande St. Lucia and Sandals Grande Antigua, we decided to share the 'Sandals experience' with our 3 children and 6 grandchildren (10 months to 8 years) by taking them to Beaches. We had a great time.

We did encounter some disappointment when we were not granted walk-out rooms as requested. We were advised that we had requested, not booked, this room category and they are granted on a first come first serve basis. These rooms were requested last fall to accomodate mobility issues and to allow my son to have more freedom when his 10 month-old went to bed at 7 pm. Having brought future potential guests to the resort I thought more effort by management could have been made to accomodate our request. We also met with unexpected delays at the airport and at the resort because we and my daughters' family were not on the guest list. After an extensive search, they did finally find us in their database. My only other complaint was freedom of guests to smoke in the French Village pool. On many occasions 3 men smoked cigars while in the pool or around the pool. The down-wind smell was disgusting and we were surprised that this was acceptable to resort management.

On a more positive note, the beach area of this resort is breathtaking. We had no difficulty in securing loungers or towels at the beach or pool. The food over-all was average with our dinner at Chateau de Paris being a highlight. Nightly entertainment was provided mostly by guests-talent show, fashion show, etc. Events that reflected the local culture more would have been appreciated. Our one excursion was the Undersea Explorer. Alistair and Betty are a husband/wife duo who take pride in showing the marvels of nature beneath the waves. Well worth considering. We came away with great photos.

This large resort is beautiful and very well maintained. It takes little effort by parents to keep children entertained. The waterpark, Sesame Street characters and X-Box room were great fun for our grandchildren. Our children are certainly talking about returning, while we look forward to visiting a Sandals in Jamaica.

We just returned from six days and had a fantastic time. Me, my husband, and two children (ages 1 and 3) stayed in a Parrot Cay one-bedroom honeymoon suite on the ground floor with an ocean view. It is one of the lower (less expensive) categories of rooms (and is in the Caribbean village) but was still really nice -- clean, well-equipped, and well located. Camp Sesame had great activities for our toddler -- we especially liked the character breakfast, the nightly show, and the walk arounds with different characters. Our one-year-old didn't like the nursery, but I don't think that was the fault of any caregivers (he was just bored with the infants, as he was at the high-end of that age category). Food was great -- we especially liked the seafood at Barefoot by the Sea (lunch and dinner); sit-down breakfast at Schooner's (a nice break from buffets); pub lunch at Cricketer's (nice pub ambiance, too); and an adults-only dinner at Le Petit Chateau (fantastic food, especially the beef tenderloin). Some chairs were reserved pretty early at pools and the beach, but we always found something in the shade without going out too early. Beach and ocean are beautiful; also a good variety of beach activities (hobies, kayaks, etc.) included. Two mornings there was a severe shortage of towels at the pools and beach, but other than that, I have no complaints and a lot of kudos. Beaches made a fantastic family vacation. Mark at tripguy.com is a fantastic, attentive agent if anyone is interested in Beaches or other all-inclusive resorts.

Spent a Sunday through Saturday trip in mid March with my wife and two boys. This was an extended family trip, with her three siblings, their families and her Dad and Step-mom. Had a great time with all and were generally very pleased with the resort. We were hoping for a four star experience and that is precisely what we got.

The rooms are very nice. We were in French Village walkout rooms which are good sized and clean, though they will likely need a refurb in a year or two. We had the King bed with Daybed and trundle. Our boys are getting too big to share a bed with and this arrangement was perfect. These accommodations are comparable to many quality four star facilities we have visited including, many of Disney's deluxe accommodations.

The Food was quite good. Again, not the ultimate in luxury dining. However, the variety of restaurants and the opportunity to enjoy well prepared and unique dishes was much appreciated.

My wife and I took advantage of the scuba diving as it is a part of the all inclusive program. This was an area of disappointment. We are used to diving with small operations, that typically offer very personalized service and a great underwater experience. Neither really happened with Beaches. There were a lot of waves on the north side of the island, so they taxied us to the south side and launched from there. All that did was make the experience even longer. The boats are filled with a large number of divers. Once under the water, the dive guides weren't particularly active in finding interesting things to look at. Then, once one diver was getting low on air, whole group had to surface. One day we had 10 divers in our group. I would suggest that someone coming to Turks and Caicos, to specifically go diving, would probably prefer other arrangements. We did see enough to realize why Turks and Caicos has such an incredible diving reputation.

Another area of disappointment was the shopping. Things were very expensive, poorly stocked and not very extensive. My wife and her sisters also spent some time at the spa and felt it was a three star experience at a five star price.

The beach was incredible. Powdery white sand and amazing blues and greens of the water. The snorkeling was very nice. The water park was nice enough but not all that substantial.

The best thing about the experience was the opportunity to spend time with family. This resort offered an incredible opportunity for our time together Most nights, all 17 of us ate together. While we had to wait a bit at some restaurants, we were accommodated each time. The chance to simply hang out at the pool or beach, and have adult conversations while the cousins played, seemed tailor made for our trip.

I would have to say that this trip was very very nice. The resort is very well maintained and provided an excellent backdrop for our extended family to reconnect and enjoy each others company.

The Beaches Turks and Caicos is an amazing resort - absolutely beautiful and there is so much to do. I highly recommend this resort for any family especially if you have kids. The food was very good, the staff was incredible and the amount of activities for kids of all ages will keep them occupied the whole time. My 11 month old had the greatest week! Since almost every other post has one complaint, I will share mine - there seemed to be an issue with the staff keeping up with the high demand for towels (although someone shared that was due to the staff trying to prevent people from reserving pool seats late at night or so early in the morning).

Our trip was a little different than most, we traveled with a large contingent of High School Seniors on a Spring Break trip for a four night stay. Mexico was out and so we decided on Turks. Parents and kids were scattered throughout the three villages (Italian, French and Carribean) and as such we heard different stories from each of the Parents regarding their experiences.

Italian and French villages won hands down. We were in the Italian and the accomodations were fabulous. Spacious room, very well appointed, modern with balcony. Fabulous pool. Consensus on the French was similar, however no balcony. Carribean rooms were similar to other reviews, dated, poor A/C, odd smell.

Food was average, many restaurants to eat at, really something for everyone. There was not one restaurant that we "had" to go back to. Quality was average across the board. Familarize yourself with the restaurant layout prior to going, it can be overwhelming where everything is located. Friendly staff. Drinks are plentiful, ours were full strength not watered down. However, if you are not one to eat or drink in excess, you won't get your money out of it.

Nice beach, beautiful water, never had a problem finding a beach chair or pool chair. Windy, choppy surf, some of our group got seasick on the "Kitty Kat" cruise. Scuba was nice, forget the fishing, it was a disaster. Wind surfing and sailing are available. One sport not advertised is golf, several of our party went to the Provo Golf Club, located 8 minutes away by taxi, nice course, fairly reasonable rates depending on the time of day you play and it was a nice break.

If you have kids 8 or under, it can be a great experience. Many kid activities and we saw a lot of happy faces. Everyone had families, I would not recommend it if you are single or kidless. The older kids in our group (17 and 18 years old) enjoyed it also, hanging by the pool or club Liquid at night. Advantage is they never need to leave the property which is a bonus. We felt safe on the property.

Bottom line is we had an enjoyable stay. Three nights is perfect, after three you are ready to leave. If you're in the Italian or French village , you are OK, if Carribean is offered, pass.
However, for value, the resort is not worth the money. We have been for example to the Atlantis(not inclusive) and in my opinion all inclusive is not worth it, its just a carrot offered to get you to come. If that does not bother you, then you will be fine. All the kids we saw enjoyed it, and were happy. Sometimes you can't put a price on that experience. But if you are looking for value and if you want to pig out all day on average food or drink...you will probably get your money's worth.
