Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos
Last week, we had the opportunity and the pleasure to visit Beaches Turks and Caicos. This resort is one of Sandals and Beaches’ prime properties and it has been on our bucket list, so to see it, was a treat. From the moment you arrive at the resort, you will be pampered. Upon arrival at the resort, you are greeted with cool hand towels and a welcome cocktail in true Sandals and Beaches form.
It is hard to put into words the beauty of the resort and the water. While on a resort tour with other advisors, we were shown a room in one of the villages and when the door was opened, all I could say was WOW! The room was an oceanfront family suite that overlooked the sea and the color of the water was unlike anything that I have ever seen before in my life. My only regret is that I did not get a picture of it.
Beaches Turks and Caicos
This resort is massive. It spans over more than 75 acres and is split up into 5 separate villages. Each village offers its own vibe and ambiance to guests. The resort also has a 45,000 square foot water park, 10 pools, 21 gourmet restaurants, 15 bars, 2 award-winning Red Lane Spas, and a Kids Camp for ages 0-17.
Each village has its own lobby and lounge for check-in, pools, architecture, and room categories. The rooms, pools, and restaurants are all spaced throughout the resort, so there is always something close and easy to get to. I went out walking the resort the first evening that we were there and I saw and learned about things on our resort tour that I did not know existed or had not seen yet. It could take a few days to discover the entire resort and with the number and variety of dining options do not worry about spending a week and not having enough to do and try!

For our time on the resort, we were in a beautiful one bedroom family suite in Key West Village. Across the walk from us were the 4 bedroom Family butler Villas. These room classes are almost NEVER available and the resort as a whole books up a year in advance. This resort is ideal for families and for multi-generational families.
