The Turks and Caicos is home to a quite a few all-inclusive resort options, which are found across several of our islands.
There are generally two types of all-inclusive resorts in the Turks and Caicos; the large all-inclusive only resorts such as Sandal’s
Beaches Turks and Caicos and
Club Med Turkoise, and several smaller hotels and resorts which offer all-inclusive packages in addition to the typical resort stays.
When deciding which type of resort to stay at, a major consideration should be how you’d like to spend your vacation. The daily all-inclusive rates are typically much higher than normal room rates, yet dining and drink expenses add up fast.
If lounging at the beach or pool and convenient dining sounds like the ideal way to spend most of your vacation, you may be best served with an all-inclusive.
If you’d rather get out and explore
beaches, coasts, and attractions, the traditional resort stay will likely make more sense cost-wise.
Islands and Locations
Water sports at Club Med Turkoise resort.
There are several inhabited islands in the Turks and Caicos, and each offers a unique blend of atmosphere, beaches, and levels of development.
The island of Providenciales, where the majority of the development in the Turks and Caicos is located, is home to most of the all-inclusive resorts. There are three expansive resorts that only offer all-inclusive stays; Beaches Turks and Caicos, Club Med Turkoise, and the secluded
Amanyara Resort. There are also a few smaller luxury resorts that provide all-inclusive packages in additional to the conventional nightly rate arrangement.
The list of things to do at Beaches is quite impressive, especially for children. There are six swimming pools, a water park with pirate ships, water cannons water slides and a lazy river, live entertainment, and game arcades. For grownups, there is the spa and boutique shopping.
The concierge desk at the resorts are also able to arrange offsite activities, such as golf at the
Provo Golf Club,
horseback riding on the beach, and island tours.
Club Med provides lessons and support for a great collection of sports both on water and land. Their “sports schools” cover many water sports, trapeze, tennis, beach volleyball, football, and fitness.
Dining and Beverages
The exclusive and secluded Parrot Cay Resort.
The dining options of an all-inclusive are another important consideration, and vary according to each accommodation.
With 19 restaurants, Beaches Resort leads with the dining and drink options and policies. There are no set dinner times, and you may choose any restaurant you’d like. There’s no additional charge for premium spirits. There’s a wide array of cuisines represented and dining atmospheres.
The other Providenciales resorts have varying dinner policies and drink inclusions. Most include all meals and drinks, yet some do not.
The all-inclusive packages at Parrot Cay Resort and Meridian Club on Pine Cay typically do not include drinks and beverages.
Many of the larger resorts on Providenciales offer eco kid’s camps and day care services. The educational camps explore sea turtle tagging, paddling adventures in the marine wetlands, scuba diving training, and guided snorkel tours.
Beaches Turks and Caicos goes beyond with an expansive water park, game arcades, Sesame Street performers, kid-friendly restaurants, and live entertainment shows.
Club Med on
Grace Bay Beach is the single adult-only resort in the Turks and Caicos.
Several resorts have restaurants and bars restricted to adults, yet the rest of the resorts are open to children and families.
If you’d like to experience the amenities of an all-inclusive, consider purchasing a
day pass. Beaches Turks and Caicos and Club Med both offer such passes.
Club Med offer a great selection of water sports, and the day pass can be a great value if you’d like to try Hobie Cat sailing, windsurfing, or paddle boarding.
Due to limited availability, the Beaches rate is a pricey $640 per adult, and $270 for kids. Club Med’s day pass ranges from $60-80 per person depending on the season.
