Where should you stay at Beaches Turks & Caicos?
I just came back from another visit to Beaches Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean. We spent a week here with our littles and had a fabulous time!
This family-friendly, all-inclusive resort has so much to offer. It’s located right on Grace Bay, which has been voted World’s #1 Best Beach by TripAdvisor Choice Awards year after year.
There are 21 restaurants, 15 bars, 10 pools, a 45,000 square-foot waterpark, and endless activities/entertainment to choose from.
Beaches Turks and Caicos is a large resort with four distinctly themed villages: Caribbean & Seaside, Italian, French, and Key West. It’s quite easy to walk from village to village and although there are golf carts available to use, most guests find they're not really necessary.
Regardless of which area you stay in you have access to the whole resort. So, what’s the difference between each village and how do you know which one is right for you?
When choosing where to stay at Beaches Turks and Caicos, you’ll want to consider several factors like: type of room accommodations needed, price point, overall vibe, and location – proximity to the beach, waterpark, specific restaurants, favorite pool, activities, etc.
