The Turks and Caicos has four all-inclusive resorts. Three are located on Providenciales, and one is found on the small nearby island of Parrot Cay.
Do to the high regional crime rates, all-inclusive resorts are very popular and make sense in many other regional countries such as Jamaica, Mexico and the Bahamas. Fortunately, the Turks and Caicos is one of the safer countries in the Caribbean and consequently the considerations of an all-inclusive stay are a little different.
We don’t believe that staying at an all-inclusive is necessarily the best choice in the Turks and Caicos, but it may make sense depending on how you like to spend your vacation and what your budget is.
The total costs for an all-inclusive stay will usually be higher than the costs of a typical vacation, but dining and activity choices can really close the price gap. Restaurants and food in general are quite expensive in the Turks and Caicos, and three prepared meals and drinks per day can add up. In addition, some amenities offered by the all-inclusive resorts, such as complimentary scuba diving and spa treatments at Beaches Turks and Caicos, can make an all-inclusive resort a good choice from a financial perspective. The water park at Beaches can make this a good choice for families with children, whereas couple and adults may prefer the adults-only Club Med.
Both Beaches and Club Med are located directly on the beach, and offer rooms and suites with stunning ocean views.
Offsite activities and island day trips are also usually not included with all-inclusive packages. Other than non-powered watersport equipment use at the resort and some dive, snorkeling and boat cruise trips, you’ll pay for anything else out of your own pocket.
One of our top recommended activities for visitors to Providenciales is to take a day trip to one of the country’s smaller islands. Spending a day away from your all-inclusive resort to visit another island or some of Providenciales’s smaller beaches can diminish the value of your vacation package.
A 12% government accommodation tax is required on rates.
All other tax and service fees, including “city tax”, are not government imposed.
Booking direct will usually give you the best price.
