Room choice at any hotel is important but at Parrot Cay the choice is vital. The larger villas are quite nice while rooms in the main section of the hotel are sub standard. We chose the three bedroom villa (and if you are able, I would strongly recommend it) for its privacy, space, nice beach view and of course its pool. The villa pool is not a plunge pool but a full size private heated pool! This perk at Parrot Cay was by far the resort's best feature. The villa is recessed far back from the beach which enhances its privacy.The service of a dedicated butler is assigned to the villa and he/she will bring you all meals as well as tidy up your room - in addition to separate housekeeping. The butler also acts as a conduit, taking care of any needs you might have. Our butler was quite good and having all meals in the room was a pleasure. The food ranged from good to excellent (with the exception of dessert) and I would say its better than many high end resorts.The villa was spacious with nice but simple furnishings. There is a large dining area and an extra large living room. Huge bathrooms and of course that private pool. Also with the villas you will not be sharing the beach with other guests.Cons, and there are many:Sections of the beach are eroding, however the narrow stretch of sand is soft, white and quite nice.The water color ranges from dull to nice. Amazing is not a word that should be used to describe this stretch of water. There are amazing water colors in Turks and Caicos in places such as Grace Bay. Not here. It just doesn't exist. Perhaps nice but not amazing.The shallow water corals are long dead so forget about seeing fish.The food is very good but the hotel needs to hire a qualified dessert chef.We ate almost all our meals in the villa but we did go to the mess hall for breakfast once which was a mistake because the main dining room is dreary, dated and too depressing to eat in.The lobby in the main building is the saddest lobby I have ever seen in a hotel. Unrivaled dreariness. The ride back from Parrot Cay to Providenciales couldn't have been handled worse. The boat was crowded and seating was limited. There was a total disregard for our comfort.Overall I would say avoid the main building, its pool, beach, restaurants and most importantly its accommodations. The villas are great and if you insist on staying at Parrot Cay and could swing it, that is the way to go.
I should start by saying that I'm a firm believer that expensive can still be value for money, however I don't believe that to be the case with this resort. The island it is situated on is beautiful: the description of white sands and clear azure water is accurate, it really is lovely. The resort itself is very nice looking as well, with the white plantation style decor blending into the lush vegetation. Just be prepared that your money does not go far hereWe stayed in a garden view room, which has a nice terrace and is perfectly clean, but for $700 a night you would expect some form of wow factor, but actually the room was pretty basic, and showing some signs of fatigue. The food is really good, but very expensive, and note that every quoted price has 22% automatically added to it for tips and taxes. So if you have a cocktail each, that's the best part of $50. Cheapest bottle of wine on the wine list was $70, and I know a little about wine so enough to know that the $70 bottles (remember that's before the 22% add-on) are not worth ordering. I've eaten in London two Michelin star restaurants that have better value wine lists. If you dine as a couple and have a starter, main and a drink each, you will be signing a bill for over $200 easily.There's also a reluctance for some reason to put water in your room, so you keep having to ring reception to get some sent up: I've heard it's an environmental thing but that seems nonsensical as otherwise they would leave giant jugs of water in your room or offer top-up points. Also, unless you plan to swim to the island, then you need their boat, for which you get charged $150 each wayOne other thing to bear in mind, and this is not the hotel's fault, some selfish people actually bring their kids here, even though there's nothing for kids to do. So the tranquility of the infinity pool can be broken by screaming children (why you'd take kids to a resort like this rather than Beaches on the mainland I do not know)It's a shame because the island is so beautiful, but the food and drink mark-ups are so ludicrous it detracts from the experience (and I refuse to hear that it is due to having to import food, as no other Caribbean islands are this expensive)
Best vacation we've had since our honeymoon! I can't say enough good things. Our accommodation was beautiful and as advertised. We splurged on a beachfront villa and it was worth it. The food was excellent and so was the service. I also enjoyed all the yoga offerings. We can't wait to come back!
It's been 18 months since our last visit, so time to update our review. Must start with the outstanding, gracious, friendly and professional staff, who continue to provide top notch service in a low key way that is courteous and respects privacy. With the threat of a hurricane, the leadership of the hotel focused on guest safety and comfort. Those in beach houses or villas were moved to higher ground and a more secure setting. The leadership kept guests informed and the one night move was done efficiently with a staff member being sure that it did not disrupt the day. The Asian food at the informal Lotus and the Mediterranean food at the Terrace continue to be presented beautifully and are delicious. And the choices at the breakfast buffet can satisfy any breakfast appetite. Once again, the beach front accommodations, beach houses or villas, are the best locations and best facilities. The long beach with soft beautiful white sand, gentle waves contribute to a perfect experience. Some freshening up of some facilities is due, and we're told this will start in 2017.
We rented the 2 bedroom beach house at Parrot Cay resort by COMO. We brought our 2 children ages 8 and 12 along to celebrate my wife's birthday. The service was absolutely unbelievable. They have an agent waiting inside the airport to greet you and make sure you are placed in the van to the dock where you are greeted at a nicely furnished lounge before departing on a boat to the Parrot Cay island. There is nothing else on this 900 acre island except for the resort and private homes. We were completely spoiled by our butler Sumantra who was the most amazing host you could ask for. From setting out an amazing breakfast in the house each morning to having flowers, champagne and a drawn bath waiting for us after our evening at the complimentary yoga class each night, this man was heaven sent. The beach was absolutely perfect and there is no water that can beat this turquoise blue/green color. The water was perfect for the kids and the adults with no waves to fight and no rocks or corral to worry about stepping on. We spent hours finding sand dollars right in front of the house and although I'm not much of a beach person we definitely all spent the majority of the time in the ocean because it was so great. The food was spot on and the amenities at the resort leave you wanting for nothing (complimentary beach toys, kayaks, snorkeling gear, SUP, sailboats, bikes, tennis equipment, etc). I was thoroughly impressed and would highly recommend this resort over the more crowded options near Provincialis.
