So this was our 3rd time at the resort ,each time there was 14 people from grandparents to toddlers,we booked this trip 10 months before we left ,our travel agent worked tirelessly to make sure every detail was taken care of we asked for rooms all together as we needed five we asked for an oceanfront view we were told they would accommodate us and remember it was 10 months before we arrived so we arrived February 10 and when we checked in we were told two families were in one building and three families were in another building not even close to what we asked for ,,to make matters worse our view looked at a hedge and the workers building there wasn't a smidge of water to be found in our view probably one of the worst views in the whole resort,when we were in the office getting the keys for a rooms I told him that we had booked these rooms 10 months before and there they were nothing of what we had booked and I received a well rehearsed answer that seems that they give a lot of people the hotel is booked and we put you where we can so what's the point in booking 10 months ahead if at the end of the day they decide where they're going to put you . In the course of the 10 days of our stay there I was approached by three different people inquiring how our stay was going I kept saying it's not what we booked and they said they told the manager and he would come talk to me ,,,he came to talk to me 45 minutes before we checked out . The nightly entertainment haven't changed in three years we almost could go up on stage and do the skits for them so they need to vamp up and change their entertainment for the evening . The food we found to be average The food at sapodillas was very good the rest of the meals were just average breakfast being very good . The resort needs to update their rooms we have been to this resort three times The rooms in the Caribbean village are dated the mattresses are hard and the showers need to be redone and freshened up.when we decide to return to the island we will try another resort .
I cannot say enough about our trip to Beaches (2/11-2/18/17). I booked this trip over a year ago on a whim, and am so glad we did. It was our first major family trip that didn't include a theme park or lots of exploring. I booked because I saw rave reviews on a friends facebook post, and thought it was time. It blew away all expectations. We returned home relaxed and refreshed, and actually feeling like our vacation was longer than it actually was. We enjoyed everything about it - staff was so friendly, always willing to go the extra mile for us. We arrived after a long morning with a very early flight to a warm welcome at the airport and being given a nice cold bottle of water and quickly whisked off to the resort. We were met at the French Village lobby with friendly staff and some punch for each of us (with a nice shot of rum for the adults) and a quick check in. While our room wasn't ready, we were quickly shown a changing area and given quick access to the resort to begin our vacation.From start to finish we were able to enjoy ourselves and relax, despite having two young children in tow. 1. Restaurants - Each experience was great. Here are some reviews:Neptunes - (2/15, 2/16, 2/17) We went for lunch 3 times because we liked it so much. Outside overlooking the beach, there was nothing better. Plus, the food was delicious. We had the hummus, seafood caesar salad, curry chicken pita, and shish burger. You can't go wrong with any of it, but the shish burger is so good. Barefoot by the Sea - We had dinner and breakfast here. Both times had friendly service, though the food took a bit longer than expected. During dinner, (2/14) we asked if we could order off menu for our son, even asking for strawberries. Not only did they accommodate it, they went to a nearby restaurant to get the strawberries special for him. they did both with a smile. When we had breakfast though there was a long wait for food, we didn't mind as there was a rain storm. Our server came over to apologize to us and made sure we had anything else we wanted/needed. She even apologized for the weather. And, she always had a smile on. (2/17)Schooners - went there for dinner on 2/15. Food was amazing, service was amazing. Had the tenderloin and the pork chop. So good. Service was excellent and they didn't bat an eye and moved us to a different table when we had a big spill.Arizonas - Lunch 2/12 and dinner 2/17. The food was great both times - lunch was buffet with ribs, chili, etc. Dinner my husband had ribeye, daughter had chicken tacos, my son had chicken nuggets - ordered off menu - and requested strawberries, I had the beef tenderloin. We all loved our food! My tenderloin came out undercooked for my liking and it was quickly taken back and cooked. They apologized many times, which was appreciated but not necessary - it happens. When it came out done, it was delicious. We so appreciated the accommodation of ordering off menu as my son is picky. A server even ran to another restaurant nearby to get the strawberries. Marios - Dinner 2/11 and 2/16 - Staff was super friendly and when we got there the second time, the hostess remembered us. We got the buffet the first night and the second we ordered off the menu. I got the pesto chicken and it was just ok - just didn't have much taste. My husband got the osso bucho (sp?) and loved it. My son got the pasta and loved it with the sauce. Giuseppe's - breakfast on 2/12, 2/13, 2/18 - tasty breakfast and quick service. Had something for everyone. Loved the crepes and french toast.Reflections - Found this later in the trip on 2/14 for breakfast- also came on 2/16 for breakfast. It was delicious. the omelette station was great, as was the potatoes, etc. Cricketeers Pub - Lunch 2/12. Food was excellent and was nice overlooking the italian village pool. Had the burger (both of us). Dinos pizzeria - Lunch 2/18. We went here for lunch hoping for a quick bite. It was really good, but it was very very slow to get the pizza. the staff accommodating and always made sure we had extras and drinks, but was frustrating that it took too long. That said, the pizza was excellent.Cafe du Paris - Pastries, Cafe au lait, apple cinnamon muffins were the best - my picky son LOVED them, crepes in the afternoon, chocolate fondue at night - all excellent. Billy D's - Great quick take out place. Service was always with a smile. Kids loved the hot dogs, pizza, chicken nuggets. They also had a great burger! We went there countless times. Each time service was quick. Sometimes the staff was very busy, but always was happy to get us what we wanted and needed. Grilled cheese was excellent, and the kids liked the ice cream machine, and cotton candy.Kimono - Food was great - Irlando was our chef. He was funny and engaging, though we were a little of a tough table - on the quiet side. But food was excellent and even entertained my 3 year old - the whole time. My daughter tried everything and liked it. That's a big deal.AccommodationsWe had a King room in the French Village - 1315. It was well appointed, extremely clean, and always stocked. Yvonne ensured we had towels, toiletries, and that our room was always clean! The day before we checked out I was happy to see her and thank her. She greeted me with a friendly smile, was sure to ask if my family enjoyed our stay and hoped we would visit again. Beyond that when I thanked her she was so gracious, focusing on us having a great time and taking pride in that. She was wonderful and helpful. French village is beautiful. Though it’s the furthest from the beach (really only about a 7-ish minute walk) to the beach, we didn’t mind at all. Our first night there was a wedding outside our window (which was not only beautifully decorated, but the DJ was AWESOME - we were dancing in our room!). It was really great to be close to the stage for the entertainment at night with kids so we could quickly get to our room as they were crashing. Kids ClubOur youngest (3.5) was in Camp Sesame. I found the staff to be warm and welcoming and the facilities to be extremely clean. It smelled fresh and clean and seemed to always be in order no matter what time we dropped off or picked up. After the first day, the staff knew my son’s name and our names as well. Anytime they would see him anywhere around the resort when he was with us they would go out of their way to say hello and address him and us by name! They were happy and cheery welcoming him and calming him when he had some difficulties separating (normal for him). The activities were great! They have the Sesame Street characters and they had a treasure hunt with Abby Cadabby, made cookies for Cookie Monster, did counting activities with the Count, and had visits with Elmo, Zoe and Big Bird. These were always highlights when we picked him up and even a week later, he still talks about them with excitement! They did some beach science with a volcano, and he loved that too. He always gave them hugs at he end of the day and when he saw them out and about. Our oldest (8) went to the camp for 8 - 10 year olds. She had a great time! They had wonderful activities planned each day for the kids that included pool games, sailing, snorkeling, boat rides, (you had to give permission), shuffleboard, beach time, time at the water park, learning activities, even “Learn to DJ”, etc. In the evening they had dance parties in the ‘club’ which my daughter loved. She opted to go back almost every night to enjoy it. Like Camp Sesame, the staff knew her as well as the rest of us and always said hello. She had such a great time she even took it upon herself to go over to thank them and say bye before we left.PoolsFrench Village - Quiet and relaxing. Bartenders were great and attentive. It had a nice little area for little kids (or anyone) to wade in. You can use floats, toys etc in the pool. There was always a chaise lounge available. Had many options for kids so everyone could enjoy the swim up bar.Italian Village - Party pool. There was a DJ there most of the day, there were activities - trivia, scavenger hunts, water aerobics. The bartenders got to know you and also entertained us as they made the drinks. They served kids and treated them just like the adults, joking and laughing with them and always added an extra garnish or flair to serving their drinks. They remembered us day after day including our favorite drinks (mimosas & screw drivers / rum & coke & turks light / virgin strawberry daiquiris). They also had a really tasty happy hour buffet of sushi and other snacks that were excellent.Iguana pool & Arizonas pool - these pools are in the Caribbean village. We didn’t spend much time there, but they looked like fun places to be. The iguana pool had a volleyball net in it (and I can’t remember if it had a swim up bar), and Arizonas had a great swim up bar.We didn’t spend any time at the Key West pools mostly because we took a walk through and they were too quiet for us. Waterpark & Octopus BarWe spent a lot of time here with our kids! Our toddler was hooked on the splash pad, pirate boat area and lazy river - he LOVED it! It had plenty of great stuff for the older kids too - big water slides, body surfing, and of course the lazy river. This area also had a kids ‘hot tub’, swim up bar (Octopus Bar) and was close to Bobby Dee’s that had quick and easy kid food (hot dogs, pizza, cookies, cup cakes, soft serve ice cream, and cotton candy) as well as a service restaurant where you could sit down and eat. Super fun.BeachThe beach is absolutely stunning. Beautiful white sand, lots of waves, but not overwhelming. We didn’t spend a ton of time there, but would take walks down there to break up a day at the pool. There are locals that offer their services or sell products (hair braiding, shells, parasailing, etc). They can be aggressive but I didn’t think they were that bad. Competition is stiff as other locals offer similar services, and they just wanted to share their offer and have you remember their name.SpaMy husband and I treated ourselves with this vacation. We booked facials and a couples massage at the spa. We got our facial first and it was amazing. My husband had Claudette and I had another woman (who’s exact name escapes me but it is a beautiful name that also starts with a C).They were both great so we requested them for our massage. We loved the spa including the products. We got my daughters hair braided on 2/17 by the water park. I forget the woman’s name, but she was super friendly. She was wonderful. She had a lot of pride in her work and for the experience we had at Beaches T&C. SnapShots / PhotographyFabian took our photos on the beach on 2/17. He did a great job and got some great shots of our family. I was thrilled with the result and purchased many on disk. He was so patient with all of us even my 3.5 year old that was not very interested in pictures at the time. The Snapshots Staff in the Italian Village was amazing. I spent some time with them choosing photos and they were patient and friendly. They all took great pride in their work and were focused on us having enjoyed ourselves. When I let them know that we had a wonderful time they were so happy and really spoke with pride. I returned on 2/18 as we were getting ready to leave and as my daughter had remembered some pictures being taken when she was out on a boat ride with kids camp. After some time, they couldn’t find it. They took my name and email and let me know they would follow up with me if they found it. Less than 24 hours later Akita reached out to let me know that they were very sorry but they couldn’t locate the picture. I said that was fine. When I started to load my pictures on my computer 3 of them didn’t load. I reached back out to Akita to ask for the specific photos. Not only did they send those, but they found the ones of my daughter and shared them as well. I was so grateful that they sent not only the pictures I was having trouble accessing, but also that they continued to take the time to look for my daughters pictures so we could have them. This was amazing and SO much appreciated.WaterspoutsMy husband and I didn’t do any of the water sports this time. We plan on doing it next time. We really just used this as a relaxing getaway.DepartureThe departure process was a little confusing at the beginning just regarding where to leave our bags, where they go, and where to hold carry on bags, etc. They ended up taking our bags to the Departure lounge and we were able to store carry ons with valuables behind the front desk. Everything at the departure lounge was clear and quick. Airport transportation was good. Overall it was the best vacation we have ever had. We will be back again in the very (hopefully) near future!
We just visited this resort in February 2017 here are my points of view:This is not a resort for couples; mostly couples are located in the Key West Village. If you look for romanticism and couples only, I honestly tell you that this place is NOT for you! There are way too many children everywhere; I keep saying that this resort and the set-up is amazing for families with children, not so much for adults only. We selected the adults only because of the All-inclusive option.If you bring children try to book in the Italian and French village, the Caribbean is ok but in my personal opinion it needs some renovations.I found pretty neat that the resort offers camps for children so parents can rest and children will be entertained during the day.Scuba is free ONLY if you are certified; otherwise you will need to pay a feeWe tried to go fishing; however the rates are extremely expensive for bottom boats or any otherFood at the resort: breakfast was definitely not my favorite; lunch got much better specially ARIZONA and the pizza places. Also, the Mediterranean restaurant located in the Key West Village is very good, and the Jerk chicken place located all the way to the end by the Caribbean village.I did not like the Italian restaurant at all. However, the Caribbean restaurant, the French restaurant and the Mediterranean were my top picks for dinner.The resort is pretty large to do walks and exercise, not much to do out of the resort, the town offers a shopping area with nice boutiques and restaurants, taxi charges are about $7 per person, per ride from the hotel to the shopping area. Every Thursday they do the fish fry, it was just ok but for locals this is a nice thing and a great opportunity to sell their local food.The hotel is located in Grace Bay which makes it wonderful because the beach is just a dream. I never used the pools. The Key West village has a small pool for adults only and all other pools are for children. The best pools are located in the Italian Village, the French village has a pretty awesome water park and the pools located in the Caribbean village are awesome too!!I did not find service to be too great a resort; employees were just okay doing their job, nothing that will make us remember a name or a specific person who went beyond. Employees cannot accept tips and they wear a sign on the shirt that states that. I did stay in the basic room, I heard that the good service is ONLY found when you book with a butler which is the reason why you pay a whole ton of money.I will return only with children, otherwise I might try a non-inclusive for adults only. Yes I highly recommend this resort to families with children….Absolutely!!!
We had so much fun our first visit we decided to go again! Now, having a growing friendship with staff and being Sandals Select members, the second time was even better than the first. So good in-fact we booked for a third time (Pricing gets better too each time you stay as a Sandals Select Member! The entire staff at Beaches has become family. They are so wonderful to us and go way above and beyond that it makes "coming home" that much better. We consider Turks our second home now. We have traveled the world in search of the best place to relax from our crazy life and it seems we have found our spot! Another BIG shout out to OD, Patrice, Roxy, Maxine and of course all of our "fury friends" who always help us take time out to enjoy the wonderful and most important things in life as well as feel so welcome and at home. Just remember...you get what you pay for, this place is worth just that!
I cannot even fathom any of the negative reviews I've seen. I took my 5 children there in 2013 with an age range of 7-15 and to a child, it is still the best week they have ever had. Not once were they bored, even during the downtimes. We had no complaints about the food and we were comfortable in the Family Suite in the Caribbean Village. From the beach to the pools to the water park and the kid;s camp, we had a 5 star vacation. My only regret is not being able to afford to return even though the kids beg me constantly. On behalf of a large family that covered every age demographic, we loved our time spent at Beaches Turks and Caicos
