Best Family-Friendly Beach Resorts in Turks & Caicos
Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Village
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
Whether you want to chill out or pack your schedule full of activities, there’s something for everyone at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Village. Grab a chair beachside or next to one of the six pools. For more excitement, hit up the water park, go paddle boarding or try windsurfing right off shore. When parents need a break, drop the little ones off at Kids Camp and the teens at Club Liquid before hitting Red Lane Spa for an afternoon of relaxation.
The Beaches resort offers a whomping 22 dining options with just about every style of cuisine and atmosphere that you can imagine. Watch your meal be created from scratch at the Japanese steakhouse Kimonos, or enjoy an exotic fine-dining experience at Sapodillas. Italian cuisine fans are sure to love Marios, but if you’re craving Tex-Mex, try Arizona’s. There are also multiple snack options at the waterpark’s many food trucks.
The Turks and Caicos resort is broken down into five areas: Caribbean, French, Key West, Seaside and Italian. Dubbed as “villages”, each section’s accommodations are inspired by its specific theme. The Carribean and Seaside villages offer lush, tropical landscaping and seaside views with convenient access to the beach. While the French and Italian villages provide a fun, European vibe, the Key West Village is casual and laid-back.
Regardless of the village, there are three levels of accommodations. Luxury Level rooms are available with pool or garden views and fitted with a private balcony or patio. Oceanfront locations and beach views are available on the Concierge Level, which offers suites ranging from one to three bedrooms. For the ultimate experience of luxury, the villas with private service in the Butler Level are the way to go.
COMO Parrot Cay, Turks & Caicos
Parrot Cay, Turks and Caicos
If you dream of living the life of luxury, COMO Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos is the place to do it. Featuring some of the most pristine views in the Carribean, the resort is nestled next to soft, white-sand beaches and brilliantly-blue seawater. Hit the COMO Shambhala spa for yoga, pilates or an Indonesian massage, and then grab a made-to-order smoothie or low-calorie cocktail at the Beach Club. Try watersports at the beach, lounge on the plethora of seating or relax next to the pool.
After a long day of exploring or relaxing, enjoy a meal at one of two on-site restaurants. The Terrace offers a rich selection of seafood, salad, soups and pasta. Or, dine at Lotus for a more laid-back vibe, which transitions from a daytime snack bar to an Asian cuisine restaurant at night. For optimal wellness, try the dietitian-curated meals available through the COMO Shambhala menu. There are also private dining options available in various settings around the resort, including private beach areas, as well as room service.
As far as accommodations, the resort’s offerings are hard to beat. There are two standard rooms options, only differing by the view. The suites provide more space with a full living room, two bathrooms and a private bedroom with balcony access. For enhanced privacy, opt for a beach villa or house, which offer between one and three bedrooms as well as a private pool and 24-hour butler service.
The Sands at Grace Bay
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
The Sands at Grace Bay is nestled next to the most beloved white-sand beach in Turks and Caicos. Spend your days lounging next to any of the three pools or relax in the in-ground jacuzzi while enjoying poolside cocktail service. At the beach, check out a Hobie cat, kayak or snorkeling equipment to enjoy the majestic turquoise water. Or soak in the views out of the sun with one of the many palapa beach shades. For some serious self-pampering, visit Spa Tropique for a facial, massage or body treatment.
The Sands offers one onsite restaurant, Hemingways, which is also open to the public. Located next to the beach, this award-winning eatery serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. From fresh seafood to regional specialties, they utilize the highest quality ingredients for every dish. Guests can also use the resort’s complimentary bikes to grocery shop at nearby Graceway Gourmet for an in-room dining experience.
The Turks and Caicos resort offers studio and suite options. The studio units are available with a garden or ocean view, and each room is equipped with a kitchenette. Their one, two and three bedroom suites are available in standard or deluxe variations, with the latter options offering larger, wrap-around balconies and oceanfront views. All suites are fitted with a full kitchen, washer and dryer and separate living area.
Villa Del Mar Resort
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
With just 42 suites, Villa del Mar never feels crowded, even when it is completely full. There is no rush to reserve chairs by the pool in the morning—two pools, in fact. Amenities include a hot tub, tiki bar, beach towels and umbrellas, free Wi-Fi, and more. Families are welcome, but the size, quietness, and lack of activities for kids mean that most guests come in couples.
Villa del Mar offers six different options of accommodations, which are spread across three low-rise buildings: studio, one, two, and three-bedroom suites, and one and two-bedroom luxury penthouses. All suites feature travertine floor tiles, custom lighting, designer bathroom fixtures, stainless steel kitchen appliances, a large living area, full kitchen, and washer and dryer. The suites are nicely decorated and spacious; all are between 1,000 and 2,000 square feet, some with balconies and some with a partial ocean view. There are no on-site restaurants at the resort, but plenty of great places are nearby. There is, however, a nice poolside bar, where a small continental breakfast is served in the morning. And a manager’s cocktail party is held once a week, where guests get a free drink and mingle with one another by the pool.
