Grace Bay Suites
- What's Included
Grace Bay Suites offers a combination of a great price and convenient location. The hotel is right beside Danny Buoys and just a short walk from the beach (which is right across Grace Bay Rd). The room was spacious and kept reasonably clean. Everything that you could possibly need is available in the vicinity. Management could improve the maintenance of the hotel grounds though, especially the pool area. But, based on our 3-night stay, guests do not hang around the hotel at all. We were out the whole day and returned only to sleep. And this hotel served our purpose really well!
We had a great time in Turks & Caicos and a great stay at Grace Bay Suites! The hotel was nice, clean, and comfy. The hotel had a nice pool, BBQ, hammock, bikes for use, and was a short walk to the Brace Bay Beach where the hotel has chairs to lay on as the other hotels do. Grace Bay Suites is in the main part of town next to many shops and restaurants! We interacted with the manager who was very nice, friendly, and polite. Would definitely stay here again when we go back to Providenciales and would recommend if you are looking for a small hotel private feel to stay at rather than staying at an expensive big resort.
It was ours the worse vocation ever ... Hotel Grace Bay Suites was not as it was promised to be, everything in the room was very old and very dirty, from the table lamp to the floor. Water was on the flor in the bathroom all the time , even after we asked at the reception to check this and fix, and they said that they did ... it was because the drain under the sink was not working, sink was always full of water, it was taking hours for water to go down. On the first night when I got up and went to bathroom I suddenly felt that I am walking in the water ... all flor was full of the water!This hotel is NOT non smoking!!!You only see the small sign in your room that this is non smoking room, but what the point if on the balcony on the left and on the right and above your balcony people are smoking all the time and you can't open the door and to get out to your balcony even for a min to put your swimming suit to dry. People smoking everywhere in this hotel: next to the reception, next to the swimming pool, on the stairs... Also there is a construction going on right behind the net fence, that we were not advised at all. The noise and dust is all day long and sometimes very late. It looks like it is on another empty property they are building a new hotel but it is 5 meters from the building of your hotel and the pool. The hotel located behind the restaurant and the entrance to this hotel is also there, so to go in and to come back you have to pass the back of the restaurant and the smelly very big and open garbage container ... and smell all this ... we were trying to cover our nose to pass this area and walk very quickly. Not helping much. The smell of the big and dirty garbage container is very strong specially at this hot weather.The beach is a separate story... :( There is a small area that belongs to public entrance and this hotel is using exactly those few meters to put their Sun Lounger Beds. When we arrived there was only 5 of them and two from those five was half broken, after other people and myself toking to the reception for 3 days they finally sent a guy to bring 5 more sun beds, otherwise you needed to get up very early to get you one. The beach is all open, there is no borders between hotels, you can walk along the beach as far as you want, but not to stop and lay down even on your towel because of the colour of your towel soon somebody will come to you and quietly ask you to go away.Through this smal public entrance every 20 min comes people with dogs for a walk, I do love dogs very much but those owners seems don't care at all about you and the beach, and they let their dogs do "everything" right next to you. The food in the restaurants was good but very expensive. In the local supermarket the Lay’s Classic® potato chips has a biggest demand! If you are coming later in the afternoon it's gone. Everything in the supermarket in $US, and it a few times more expensive that you used to buy. The Wi Fi in this hotel was very very slow and disappearing every 5 min. While you think that you are on a free internet you already on your data and don't know it. People was complaining all the time about internet not working but they couldn't say anything, they was giving suggestion to go and seat next to the pool and it should be better there, but it wasn't ! Not at the pool area not at the reception area, and they was not doin anything for it. We were not able to do the check in for the return flight, not from our computer and not from the computer at the reception: the pages on the web were just not opening.
The place definitely has potential in that the location is great no need to drive but the property is seriously lacking. We stayed in Room 206 and there was no lift/elevator so we had to carry all of our luggage up/down the stairs. The shower (no tub) stall door would not close completely (quickly explained the reason for a drain on the floor near the toilet). The bedroom AC unit was on its last legs or at least sounded that way. The sofa bed was missing cushions, stained and basically was falling apart. The living room area has sheer curtains so we had to stack the cushions from the sofa up in order to block out the external lights. The closet door was off the hinges and would not close. Thankfully it was our last night on the island so we didn't need too much. No internet, no TV in the bedroom and the cable box was sitting precariously on top of the television so we were afraid to even attempt to turn it on. There was a lowboy fridge in the room, a microwave that worked and sink. Some basic necessities were in the drawers (cutlery, etc) and a roll of paper towel was provided. This property was probably the equivalent of a Motel 6 in the US. Upon check-out no one was at the front desk so we had to go behind the desk and use the phone to call someone who instructed us to just leave the room key on the desk.
Compared to a studio apartment..well laid out..need lots of updates..but overall it's clean..spacious shower...hot water and cold A/V..WiFi was free but no great signal..nice pool..cheaper than other hotels off beach but closer to local shops and restaurants which are less than 5 min each direction and across street... and 10 min walking distance to beach and supermarket..everything in walking distance..not a 5 star but who goes on vacation to stay in the room..pack bottled water and snacks..the island is expensive..but quiet and beautiful...
