We visited Sands at GraceBay Turks n Caicos for my wife's Birthday and our Wedding Anniversary , and wonderfully they're both on June 13. Our initial rm (3109) had some issues so they awarded us an upgraded rm (6204). The new rm was spacious and even had a balcony. My only issues is that the shower drain needs to be cleared as the water is going down very slow, the shower head and light cover inside the shower area needs changing as it was rusted and had some molded issues (green). And in the beginning it was a little difficult getting washcloths and additional towels. But in all fairness it's a pretty large resort w a great number of rooms so some issues can be over looked especially if its not reported by prior guess or the cleaning crew. The towel issue was rectified and the staff was very pleasant and polite..please don't change and continue to be even better. We really appreciate you correcting our situation and making it even better. And after finding out about the occasions that we were celebrating they sent up balloons and a bottle of wine to the room. That was a very nice gesture and it was greatly appreciated. We really enjoyed our time on the island and at the resort. However the island is a little pricey so its a gd idea to buy some items from the grocery store and/or bring some items with you. And we were told about a little flea market type area that's in the same Grace Bay area and the prices of there souvenirs were negotiable. And The Sands beach area is one of the largest with plenty of lounge chairs and it's extremely beautiful as is the grounds.
We had an amazing stay!!!! Our room was awesome and the staff was great as far as accommodations. The staff needs to work on staying on the same page relaying information to guest. We got different answers from each person we talked to. Lol. The hotel is near shops, the grocery store, and it's not too far from anything. The beach is amazing and the pools on site are nice too.
Great beach. People very nice. Staff very accommodating. Spa was disappointing. Loved the washer dryer in the rooms. Water sports were great. Food was good, breakfast a little limiting. Good for people with disabilities.
We stayed at the Sands for the week just after Memorial Day. Turned out to be a great week. It's off season and not too crowded. The weather was great every day. Just a few spotty thunderstorms in the afternoon but typical of the Carib. High temps were in the upper 80's and lows about 80.We rented a car from Grace Bay Car Rental for the first 3 days, nice folks, good prices and very accommodating allowing us to leave the car at the resort and they came and picked it up. We used the car to explore the island and hit a few restaurants that were not in walking distance. We also used it to stop at the IGA grocery on the way to the resort from the airport. Our room (1 bed king) had a full kitchen so we bought breakfast and lunch items and went out every night for dinner.Our condo was big and well decorated. We had a "garden view" which was fine with us since we spent most of our time on the beach. I am told there are other 1 bedroom units that are smaller and maybe only have a queen bed. So beware!We never had a problem getting a thatched hut on the beach but there were also umbrellas and chairs that the beach staff would set (for free). The sand at the beach was soft and reminded me of Pensacola. The water was crystal clear. The resort has kayaks and Hobie cats which they allow you to use for free. There was a good breeze so I would be hesitant to take a Hobie cat out if you don't already know how to sail.We took an all day 'cruise' with Caicos Dream Tours and went snorkeling and visited some of the nearby islands. Lunch was cooked for us. Nice!! You can purchase that tour at the Sands.There are plenty of restaurants. All are good and all are expensive! Hemingways (at the resort) is good but the menu is somewhat limited. We ate there our first night and elsewhere on the remaining nights.All in all, it was a great trip, great resort. Resort staff is friendly and helpful. I'd go back for sure!!
This place is great, and everyone could not be nicer. Beach is one of the best beaches I have ever swam it. Lacora at the front desk was awesome she catered to all our needs along with her co-workers. Carolyn from Hemingways (on site restaurant) the GM was great with my beach party, and Wes is one of the best bartenders to wait on us. Any problems our group had were fixed. The grounds are will kept, along with the rooms and the beach.
