Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa: Resort Review

by Mar 17, 2021

Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa

Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa is a one-of-a-kind, unbelievably exciting all-inclusive vacation for the whole family. This amazing all-inclusive resort features five magnificent villages featuring architecture and ambiance of Italy, France, the Caribbean and Key West, a 45,000 square-foot waterpark, 21 gourmet restaurants, a 12-mile beach lapped by clear turquoise waters, and 10 impressive pools. There are endless fun activities for everyone from tots to tweens and teens, featuring Sesame Street® characters, an Xbox Play Lounge and a sizzlin’ teen disco—all located on Grace Bay, voted the World’s #1 Best Beach by TripAdvisor Travelers.

Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa

There are really four resorts at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa;

  1. The Caribbean Village, which opened with the resort in 1997 and received a refresh in 2015
  2. The French Village, which has a Riviera-style atmosphere
  3. The Italian Village, which is the most expensive and has the nicest rooms
  4. The Key West Village, opened in 2013 and formerly the Veranda Resort.

Each village has its own pools, restaurants, and room types.

All-inclusive rates are one of the biggest appeals at Beaches. Guests can challenge themselves to eat at all 20 restaurants, drink at all 12 bars, and relax at all six pools before their vacation is over. In those 20 restaurants, you will have the opportunity to eat brick-oven pizza, jerk chicken, sushi, and crème brulée all in one day.

Booking a room at Beaches may seem a bit complicated because there are so many options. That is why having a travel advisor is very important. In fact, there are 44 room categories offered at the resort and number of “villages” that comprise the resort, including Key West, Italian Village, French Village, Seaside Villas, and Caribbean Village. These areas all have décor matching their theme.

Features and decor in rooms vary greatly and all sections have the option for personal butler service. We would suggest booking at least a year or more out to take advantage of butler rooms. They are the first to book up.

Room types include villas, family suites, and individual rooms. You may not be spending too much time in your room, so keep that in mind as you decide what type of room to book. If you are traveling with grandparents, a villa is a great option. These accommodations, located in the Key West section, include kitchens and washer/dryer facilities.

While you won’t need the kitchen, since the resort is all-inclusive, it’s so nice to have the washer/dryer. You can wash all of your clothes on the last night and returned home with a suitcase full of clean clothes. Room amenities do vary based upon the room type and village area but include complimentary WiFi (higher speed WiFi is available at an additional cost), coffee maker, clock radios, televisions, satellite television, and air conditioning.

Family Friendly For All Ages”

Make no mistake, this is a family hotel at heart — But if you want your little ones to be entertained while you head for a rum punch, you’ll certainly be taken care of with a Sesame Street Camp and nightly performances, a Martha Stewart Crafts Studio, a massive 45,000-square-foot water park, an Xbox games garage, and even a DJ academy.

All-Inclusive / Food

Twenty different restaurants and 12 bars

Food is an attraction unto itself at Beaches, where 20 restaurants and 12 bars round out the culinary and libation offerings. A few of our favorites are Kimono’s, a Japanese restaurant with exotic teppanyaki-style dishes that are prepared at the table; and Le Petit Chateau, a European a la carte restaurant that claims authentic French specialties. The gorgeous Café de Paris is also a great spot for coffee and afternoon snacks — just beware of the always available and extremely addictive free cookies and pastries.

A few require resort evening apparel – so pack long pants and nice shirts if you want to be able to eat at these spots. In most cases, you can just walk up to the restaurant you’ll want to dine at, although Kimonos, the teppanyaki restaurant, requires reservations (and is definitely worthwhile).

  • Twenty restaurants with cuisines that include Caribbean, French, Italian, Tex-Mex, Japanese, pub fare, brick-oven pizza, and seafood
  • Twelve bars, including Five swim-up bars
