Beaches Resorts are family-friendly all-inclusive resorts throughout the Caribbean. Owned by the Sandals brand, these resorts deliver the same high level of service, luxury, and amenities as the Sandals adults-only all-inclusives. And while these are family-oriented resorts, there are still plenty of reasons for couples to visit on their own. In fact, Beaches Resorts are popular for honeymoons and destination weddings.
Beaches Turks & Caicos is located on the spectacular island of Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos, near the capital city of Providenciales. It’s the closest Beaches resort to the U.S., at just 75 minutes by air from Miami.
Read on to learn all about it in this Beaches Turks & Caicos review.
Beaches Turks & Caicos Overview
Sprawling along a stunning stretch of one of the world’s best beaches, Grace Bay Beach, this Turks & Caicos all-inclusive resort is just 20 minutes from the airport. It is divided into five villages in the styles of the Caribbean, France, Italy, and Key West and has a 45,000-square-foot waterpark, 20 gourmet restaurants, 15 bars, and 10 amazing pools.
While Beaches Turks & Caicos is a family-friendly all-inclusive resort, it has adults-only restaurants, which is great for couples looking to enjoy a more peaceful mealtime. And since this is a very large resort, there are secluded spots for privacy.
It’s popular with couples as well as families for this reason, and also because of its location. Couples who are kids at heart also love the giant waterpark.
Beaches Turks and Caicos reviews are mostly positive, with many guests raving about the service, property, and huge array of activities.
