Beaches Turks & Caicos-Family/Multi-Generation

Italian Village(Main Pool)
Italian Village(Main Pool)

Beaches Turks & Caicos is truly a luxury family All- Inclusive resort for all ages. It’s HUGE!!! The resort has 4 villages for you to choose from when staying here! (Italian, French, Caribbean, and Key West). Of course, each village has a different theme with landscaping, decor, dining, pools, etc. Plus, several room categories.  We were lucky enough to stay in the Italian Village- Italian Concierge Family Suite with Kids Room/Oceanview. The photos and descriptions just don’t do it justice until you see it for yourself. I was blown away! 

My family really enjoyed a little bit of this and a little bit of that… each day waking up for breakfast at a different dining location, heading to the beach for a few hours, back to the water park, and straight to the pool for a few hours before getting ready for dinner and the resort entertainment each night. We pretty much did this on repeat each day and absolutely loved it! It really comes down to what you and your family are interested in for your vacation, and what your budget is. The Italian Village is the most centrally located to everything and the rooms are perfect! You are near lots of dining, the water park, and the stunning beach of Grace Bay. The resort is perfect for multi-generation families!  

This is what you get when you book with BEACHES:•Unlimited dining at 21 Restaurants•Unlimited Premium liquors•15 bars, including swim-up bars•All tips, taxes, and gratuities•10 Freshwater pools, 4 whirlpools & 1 scuba diving pool•Pirates Island water park with lazy river. Plus, food trucks!•Kid/teen designated spaces, and adults to enjoy all over the resort•Caribbean Adventures with Sesame Street•PADI-Certified Scuba diving(and all the equipment)•Hobie cats, Paddleboards, kayaks•Liquid at Beaches, nightly teen club•X box play lounge•Fitness center•Day/Night Entertainment•FREE WIFI(in room and all common areas)•The Caribbean’s first Certified Autism Centers•Kids Camp with Certified nannies•Round trip airport transfers(only 15 mins away) Need I say more?

The safety and environment here for kids and adults make the experience for families even easier.  We loved the beach… who wouldn’t when it is crystal turquoise blue water! Grace Bay is truly one of the most beautiful beaches… I have ever seen. Stunning beaches, and endless sunshine on this island. We ended up trying several restaurants, it’s so hard to pick and choose during your stay, but the sushi and pizza we loved the most. Water sports are included in your hotel stay, so try all of them!!! We did the glass bottom boat, snorkeling, Hobie cats, paddle boards,  and aqua trikes.

Plus, if you are part of the Concierge category you get to do Adults Only catamaran ride for an hour with other guests. 

One of the keys to making your vacation at Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort is to book well in advance for your vacation. This is when you want to get hold of me at Live a Little Travel to book your vacation! If you are looking for a tropical escape, and don’t want to worry about a thing… Then this is the place for the family!

Amazing Beach Vacation!
Jamie was so great to work with in planning our extended family vacation to Turks and Caicos…three families from three different cities. We celebrated my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary so it was very important to us that we had dinner together every night. Even though the resort didn’t take reservations, she leveraged her connections at the resort to get us reservations at all the restaurants we wanted to go to every night! And had it all arranged even before we left. That meant so much to us. She coordinated all the details of the trip…things I didn’t even know I needed to do…she just did it! The trip was wonderful and so low stress…truly an amazing vacation!

Made Our Disney Trip So Much Easier
Jamie planned our trip to Disney World in January 2019. We traveled with a large group (12) and stayed off property. Jamie provided us with all sorts of ideas via email. We specified parks we wanted to visit and rides/dining we wanted. Jamie booked these for us each night, 30 days out. She also continued to look for reservations/FastPasses right up until our trip.
We met in person shortly before departing to get tickets. Jamie gave us a packet of information, as well as a laminated daily schedule and family goodie bags. The kids loved the lanyards and games she provided for waiting in line.
Finally, Jamie was there to help us during our trip. In the past, we’ve found Disney’s technology is not perfect -- tickets/Magic Bands don’t always function properly. Jamie was available via phone/text to help address any concerns.
Jamie is organized, easy to work with, and highly knowledgeable about Disney. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again in the future.
