Ports Of Call Resort
- What's Included
OverviewPorts of Call Resort exemplifies casual style on Providenciales Island located among the Turks and Caicos Islands. The hotel stands adjacent to Ports of Call shopping and dining centre and is across the street from the white sand beaches at Grace Bay.
Location: Across the street from Grace Bay Beach, 15 min drive from the airport. Provo Golf Club 5 min drive away.
Don't waste your money. Staff are rude. Rooms, when serviced got attention late in the day. Need water? Buy it. The 'free breakfast' had sour milk and repeated requests for water went unanswered. We were locked out of our room because the electronic key battery was low. Neither master key was on the property. Their response? Oh well. This never happens. The dive shop Dive Provo is all talk and no action. Divemasters made rookie mistakes, and constantly barked at us. One took us into a hard current and then mocked the weaker swimmers for not enjoying the 'challenge'. After the diving is done, there isn't even a place to rinse off your scuba gear as you prepare to head home!!For people working in the service industry, and for an island country essentially dependent out tourism, none seem to care about the experience of visitors. Compared with other island counties nearby, T&C is incredibly overpriced. Be prepared for a $70 cab ride from the airport to make the 5 mile journey! We won't come back. The diving was average for the Caribbean and there are much nicer places to visit that are also less expensive and have much more pleasant people living and working there. If you go to T&C, definitely stay somewhere besides Ports of Call. The workers seem to get some bizarre sense of gratification at harassing the guests.
I stayed at Ports of call resort as part of a dive trip. The resort itself is nice. The staff are not rude but not friendly either. One of the people in our group got locked out of there room on the first day due to key failure. They did not have a master key on site. And they almost missed the dive trip for the day. Stressful way to start vacation. One evening we tried to get water and were told that water was done for the day and none was available unless we wanted to buy it. The person in charge of the paddle boards and kayaks really did not want to help or do anything. He told one person from our group that she could not use the paddle board until she was dry. Never heard of such a thing. Overall our stay was ok. We were also kicked out of our rooms at exactly 11 am on the last day.
Well here we are again, absolutely fantastic base, sitting by the pool writing this because I managed to burn to a crisp on my first day. Still wonderful POC, Watson and rest of staff still superb. Nothing has changed on the island, the weather (apart from yesterday's thunder storm, quite a relief tbh) and Ports of Call, love the place it excels in every department. We are here for 14 nights so glad I didn't make last years mistake and stay only 7 days. Do yourself a favour come to POC it's honestly cheaper than you might think and be amazed by the hospitality, the wonder that is TCI. Ignore the negative reviews I'm really baffled as to how they came about them, this place is "the dogs" that's a good thing for non brits. With a supermarket so close you can spend as little or as much on food drink as you please. One negative....the wifi is a little hit and miss, yes that's it the wifi wow how sad am I, I'm not here for the wifi if I was I should be at home. Get here before the Ritz Carlton attempt to spoil TCI, even their monstrosity won't spoil paradise im sure. Ok ramble over, visit Watson on the bar he really is "old school" visit POC you won't regret it and there are only a few brits ;)
We stayed here for 2 weeks in July with our family. ( kids 7 and 9). We didn't find one negative thing about this hotel. Clean, friendly staff, breakfast included, close to the beach, close to the grocery store. If you have extra money to spare for luxury than you can enjoy the other overpriced hotels on the islands. If you are looking for true value for your money... Go to Port of calls. You have everything you really need there and more. Highly recommend. We will be returning.
Ports of Call was an excellent choice for my husband and myself, as we were diving with Dive Provo which was situated across the street. This hotel is super clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms were well kept and had a mini fridge to keep drinks and snacks. Continental breakfast was provided, and had pastries, fruits and on occasion, eggs. The hotel grounds were quiet at night, and the hotel had a ping pong tourney, bingo for the kids, and a meet and greet with trivia. Overall perfect spot. It is not on the beach, but you can walk to it. We could walk to the shopping, restaurants and grocery. We will stay here again!
