My wife, 3 year old son, and I stayed at Parrot Cay for eight nights in June 2011. In the past we typically vacationed at Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton properties in the Caribbean. We were looking for a quieter and smaller resort that had large well manicured grounds and outstanding service. Simply put, Parrot Cay met and exceeded our expectations.
We landed in Provo and exited the airport for a seamless transfer. We were met outside the airport by a Parrot Cay greeter who took our luggage and escorted us to a waiting minivan. We didn't see or have to deal with our luggage again until we entered our hotel room. After a 10 to 15 minute ride, we arrived at Parrot Cay's boat dock which offered all the typical amenities. Our boat ride to Parrot Cay lasted approximately 30 minutes at which time we were greeted by representatives from the resort and escorted to a waiting golf cart which took us to check-in at a lounge in the main building of the resort.
The rooms are of a minimalist design and while not full of granite and marble are neat, clean, and spacious. The rooms do have an LCD television and DVD player along with telephone and wifi.
The resort grounds are spacious and gorgeous. The attention to detail on the grounds is phenomenal, right down to the orchids that grow on the trunks of the trees. When we were at the beach, we felt like we had the ocean all to ourselves. The pool was an infinity edge with zero entry that gradually increased in depth to about 5 or 6 feet. Service was efficient but at the same time was not hovercraft like and allowed us to be on our own and enjoy family time.
The resort has two dining options (Terrace and Lotus). We found both restaurants to have excellent cuisines made with extremely high quality ingredients. Menu items change throughout the week so as not to become dull.
We really appreciated the privacy, peace, and quiet during our stay at Parrot Cay. Those who are interested in activities, nightlife and being able to visit other restaurants would have to go back to Provo as none of such things exist on Parrot Cay.
On a final note, the resort obviously is popular among couples, honeymooners and babymooners. However, there were some children, toddlers, and babies at the resort during our stay. The resort does not have a children's program except during select peak times. That being said, the resort staff is great with children and on many occasions offered to give our son golf cart tours of the resort.
We are looking forward to future family vacations at Parrot Cay.
