As a travel agent, I often get asked, “what is the best all-inclusive family resort?” While the answer to this question can have several answers, Beaches Turks and Caicos ranks supreme on my list. My family and I enjoyed a wonderful vacation here and I can now see why it is ranked the number one family luxury all-inclusive vacation in the world! Keep reading my complete review to see if this is the right resort for your family!
Planning a family vacation can be stressful, how do you know you are picking the right resort for your vacation? With over 45 different room categories to choose from, you might be wondering which one you should pick for your family. As a travel agent who travels frequently, I can assure you my first hand review will help you plan the perfect Beaches Turks and Caicos luxury family vacation!
Beaches Turks and Caicos is a family friendly all inclusive resort located on the one of the most beautiful beaches in the world- Grace Bay Beach.
Before we dive into the villages and rooms, lets chat quickly about this luxury resort.
Everything is included!
Yes, you read that right! At Beaches Turks and Caicos, pretty much everything (even tips) are included. If you are new to all-inclusive resort vacations, you might not understand what that really means. At all Beaches resorts, pretty much everything is included with the cost of your stay. This means your airport transportation, food (all meals & snacks), premium alcoholic drinks, most water activities including glass bottom boat rides, the super fun surf simulator, and the thrilling waterpark – all included. I can't think of too much that the cost of this vacation didn't include.
Note: snorkeling is not one of the included activities at Beaches Turks and Caicos so expect to pay a fee when you check out your equipment.
I hope you come to Beaches Turks and Caicos hungry as well because there are 21 different restaurants to choose from. We loved the Barefoot Grill where you literally eat with your toes in the sand!
Comfortable and Spacious Accommodations
Beaches Turks and Caicos has 4 unique villages and 45 different room categories –which can be overwhelming when deciding which is the best room for your family. That’s where a travel professional like myself comes in handy to help you choose the best option for your family vacation. I highly recommend using a certified Sandals or Beaches specialist like me to help you navigate this luxury family resort. (I do not charge any fees so enlisting my help is entirely FREE to you.)
Each village has their own lobby, pool and restaurants but you don’t have to be staying in a particular village in order to enjoy the amenities there. I personally love the Italian Village for the central location and the huge pool with a swim up bar. One of my favorite rooms here has a separate kid's room with a trundle bunk bed which can comfortably sleep 3 kids. The Key West Village is the newest area. The Key West rooms are larger and offer multiple bedroom suites. Some even have kitchens, and most have washers and dyers. All the rooms here are either concierge or butler level– perfect for those looking to add even more luxury and perks to their vacation. The French Village is the furthest from the beach but the closest to the Pirate Island Waterpark and the center stage where the Sesame Street characters perform. The Caribbean Village is the most affordable option. Rooms here can show their age but are a great option to fit within many budgets.
There’s so much to do and again, its ALL included
I could write an entire blog post on just this topic because there is so much to do here! One of the biggest draws is the Beach, Grace Bay, which is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You could spend all day here lounging in the sun and sand (we did this as much as our active kids would allow us to!) All water sports are included as well. Hobie cats, kayaks, paddle boards, and our favorite- the glass bottom boat ride over the reef to search for marine life- are all included in your stay. We were able to see several fish and even a sea turtle poking his head out of the water during our boat ride.
One of the biggest reasons families with children love this resort is the 45,000 sq ft waterpark. There are 3 large slides, 2 medium slides, several smaller slides, a lazy river and my boys favorite- a surf simulator. The pools here are also great and never felt crowded because there are 7 different ones to choose from. My favorite was the French Village Pool for its large size and plentiful lounge chairs.
There is something for everyone
Young kids will love the Sesame Street characters you will find all over the resort. From character parades to baking cookies with Cookie Monster himself, children will have lots of opportunities to not only meet but hang out with their favorites from Sesame Street. Every night (usually before 6 pm) the Sesame Street characters put on an interactive, family friendly outdoor stage show featuring dances and songs. Rest assured, Beaches Turks and Caicos is not just for little kids, in fact, older kids and teens will equally love it here. My boys loved hanging out at the Xbox lounge and the tween and teen club, Club Liquid. Club Liquid was the highlight of my older son’s vacation. He loved the teen atmosphere and the nightly DJ spinning tunes. After hours, Club Liquid turns into a 21+ dance club. Speaking of adults only, there is an adult only restaurant called Sky Lounge for those nights when the kids are at the supervised kids club or Club Liquid.
There is plenty to do for everyone in the evenings– beach parties, live Shows, karaoke, dancing, piano bars, live bands, and game nights kept us entertained each night. The best part about a Beaches vacation is you can always find something to do to entertain your family or you can find relaxation in doing nothing- it’s your vacation!
