We honeymooned in Parrot Cay after a fairytale stay at our wedding hotel, the Gansevoort on Providenciales, T&C. We should have never left Gansevoort. For something like 3 times the price, Parrot Cay provided a third of the amenities.
Parrot Cay is beautiful, no doubt about it, and it is very secluded but so are most of the Grace Bay hotels. The Gansevoort, again, has a very secluded beach with only one other resort within eye distance.
The staff at Parrot Cay is amazing, the service is really impeccable and the food was terrific.
The room, however, really does ruin the experience. I read all the reviews and we thought "who cares about the room? we won't be in the room!" but we ended up caring a lot. We didn't care about the bare room and the fact that a hotel with like $1000/night rooms goes for a "rustic" vibe. But there were a lot of little issues that caused problems for us. First of all, the bed was TERRIBLE. The mattress sagged and the sheets were sandpiper-like with awful pillows. A friend of ours who has stayed at Parrot Cay and loves it despite the bad rooms described the sheets as no better than you get in a hospital. I mean, really, really bad. The shower was also awful. For the money there should be a much nice bed and shower and these things end up really putting a damper on the whole experience. Why are we paying so much for such eh accommodations? Also, no wifi in the rooms? What is this, 1995? Yes, yes, we were honeymooning and so shouldn't be on the computer but we like staying in touch with our families and the lack of wifi was just weak. There was often a wait for computers in their library, wifi in the rooms is a must.
We had a good time at Parrot Cay, partly because we can have a good time together anywhere but we see no reason to ever return. There are plenty of Grace Bay hotels which offer a lot more bang for the buck.
