Not to mention they have a mac n cheese truck and ice cream truck in this area too! Plus a swim up bar for the kiddos with some smoothies and blended kid friendly drinks!

Tip: Bring a water camera or you can purchase a phone water protector on arrival.

Kids Camp

My daughter is 9 and we let her visit the kids camp on 2 different occasions so hubby and I could enjoy a date night. She made friends, it felt safe, they had fun activities planned and both times had an awesome time.

Tip: Kiddos need to be registered prior to drop off so I suggest doing it as soon as you arrive. Also, important to keep in mind, if you are dropping off your kiddo for dinner she/he needs to be registered by 5pm. Any later and they will not be able to take them in. We almost learned this the hard way.

Games And Nightly Activities

Every evening we received a schedule in our room with an outline of all the fun we could expect the next day. We attended a Sesame Street Show where the Sesame Street gang performed, enjoyed the Friday Night Beach Party, and also participated in some of the poolside family games and competitions. All at no additional cost!


Which Section of the Resort Should I Stay In

With 4 different villages to choose from everyones questions is always, where should I stay? Well, I'm going to give you my personal rundown on what I observed and the differences between all the villages.


Key West Village- This is the village we stayed in and we were very happy with it. Our room came with concierge service, had a king size bed, a pull out sofa for the kiddo, a balcony, mini fridge stocked and refilled with water, juice, wine, and rum, microwave, coffee and safe. The room was impeccable just like the rest of the resort!


Things to know about this Village: It's a very quiet area. There are no activities going on in this village so if you are looking to disconnect after a day of fun this village is definitely for you. The pool in this village was small and with no swim up bar but again, if you are looking for more quiet private time, this is perfect. Would we stay here again...absolutely! The Villas with butler service in this village looked adorable and were right by the beach.


Italian Village- This is at the center of the resort and where all the pool and family activities happen. There were people at this pool at all hours of the day and it is where we spent most of our pool time. The Italian Village has several restaurants nearby, stores, the photo shop and is right next to one of the kids club. This was our favorite pool and swim up bar.

TIP: If you make it out to the Italian Pool bar, make sure to ask for Bishop and ask for a Simple Bishop! You won't find it on the menu but it's amazing! Vodka, fresh fruit, light and so refreshing! Why why why why WHY NOT!

French Village- This village is beautiful and a lot more quiet than the Italian Village. The pool is big, perfect for families and also has a swim up bar. There are no pool activities which makes it a little more quieter and relaxing. It is right next to the waterpark and there are several restaurants located in this village. They also have the open air Theatre here, where lots of the night shows are held.


Caribbean Village/Seaside Village- This village is the closest one to the ocean but also the least visually appealing compared to the rest of the resort. The seaside village area is right next to the walkway so definitely not as private or quiet. This area does have some restaurants we enjoyed and if you are looking for the least expensive rooms or want to be right next to the beach this is definitely the way to go.


Extra Out Of Pocket Expenses

Complimentary Photo Session- Every family that arrives gets a complimentary photo session so make sure you book this as soon as you arrive. They do some garden pictures and then some pictures by the beach. BEWARE: They do a fantastic job and most likely you will be purchasing some pictures when you see them. We ended up splurging and purchasing 20 pictures but when in Turks LOL. Don't say I didn't warn you! Here are some examples of the pictures we purchased.


Romantic Candlelight Dinner- We had a sunset dinner under the stars for our anniversary and it was perfect! Served by a waiter in white gloves, on a table specially decorated with a rose and candle lights... it was perfect. At booking we were able to choose our meal from several different menu options so it was perfectly customized to what we each wanted for dinner. It also included a bottle of Ruffino Prosecco and unlimited pours of Robert Mondavi Twin Oaks Wines. Seating is very limited so make sure to book before you arrive to get desired date and time. Prices start at $200 per couple.


Seaside Caicos Scavenger Hunt- Of course they offer several excursions you can book online even before arrival or during your stay. I suggest you book ahead of time since spaces are very limited. We only thought about booking 2 weeks before our arrival and everything we wanted to book was sold out except for the Seaside Caicos Scavenger Hunt! You guys, this was thee most memorable excursion I have ever had. We learned the secrets of conch hunting, and joined the crew at a secret spot in the middle of the beautiful turquoise ocean to snorkel and spot and collect some conch. Even if you personally are unable to catch any yourself they will make sure every family leaves with one of the conch's beautiful shells...the perfect souvenir. After a successful underwater hunt the ship anchored in the most beautiful deserted island I've ever seen! Here we enjoyed the fresh caught conch turned into ceviche and went on the search for sand dollars and sea shells. This little island was heaven on earth! We came back home with some beautiful shells, 2 huge sand dollars, a conch shell, and some of the most beautiful memories. If you want to splurge on one excursion I would highly recommend this one $138 adult/ $88 child. You can see other excursions they offer HERE.

Covid Testing and Paperwork Required For Travel

During our visit a negative covid test result 5 days prior to departure was needed. Covid results had to be uploaded to their system and proof was required at the airport. There is also a need to take a covid test before leaving Turks. Thankfully on arrival, the resort will let you know and help you set it up on property at no charge. It was an easy process.

Guess what? TRAVEL PROTECTION PLAN IS ON BEACHES! You can find the information on their website and forms are required to be filled out and will be sent by Beaches. Keep in mind requirements seem to be changing at a rapid pace so to be 100% sure of

what is needed during your trip, please visit this link

https://travelauthorisation.turksandcaicostourism.com/public/ or you can also call Beaches for updates, which is what we did. They were always very helpful and happy to help or walk us through the process for covid test or their complimentary travel insurance.

Tip: The airport coming back home was crowded, hot, and a bit disorganized. Make sure you bring comfortable shoes, clothes, and TONS of patience. It is 100% worth it.
