Villa Del Mar Turks and Caicos
- What's Included
We have stayed at Club Med Turkoise a number of times. They have the best part of one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. The rooms, however, could really use some TLC as they haven't been changed in years. As another poster noted the water in the shower went from very cold to scalding and nowhere in between. We had the same experience with towels, asking for more politely with a $20 bill attached to the note on the counter. The tip was taken but just one large towel was left! We finally went to the front desk to ensure we had more and then the maid did start leaving a couple of clean towels each day. The food is quite good as it has always been at this resort. They had a fire at their main restaurant late last year so all of the meals are served at the far end of the resort in what used to be their specialty restaurant. This is a wonderful move because they finally have enough outdoor tables to accommodate all of us northern folk who want to eat under the stars as often as we can.Sharkies has been enlarged and as always it is lots of fun at sunset. They have made it their specialty reservation style restaurant in the evening but we preferred the regular buffet food.We like to golf in the morning and it was easy to get a cab back and forth to the course that is about 5 minutes away. I wish you could get breakfast earlier but they're pretty strict about the 7 am start. With the restaurant at the far end and our room at the opposite end it was a hike over for every meal which isn't so bad when you want to walk off a meal. The problem is in the morning we had to hike over for first breakfast then race back to our rooms and then the front driveway for an early tee time.I had an accident while there, falling over an invisible 1" step on the sidewalk at the drive around at 7 am while on my way to golf. The staff were quick to respond as one of them saw me land on my knees and then hard on my cheek. I reported it all to the front desk receptionist. By the time we came back from golf at noon the step had been jack hammered out and the concrete replaced to eliminate the step. I was pleased that someone else wouldn't fall over this trap and their quick response to correct the problem. My eye swelled up and bruised quite badly and I had a low grade headache all week but no one from the resort checked in with me to see how I was doing. When I finally met the manager a few days later at Skarkies he asked me about my black eye and when I told him he gave me a hug! LOLWe would go back but I really do hope they improve on the rooms, have the cleaning staff clean the rooms earlier than late afternoon and maybe buy some more towels. They could use more shade and chairs on the beach. The beach though is well worth the price of admission!
I have been to this resort many times and enjoy the laid back atmosphere. No need to dress business casual!! I enjoyed the sailing and all 4 GO's were great. The Armada is a must do event!! The late afternoon sing along with Bruce was good and the food at Sharkies was great. Try the fish tacos and grilled cheese sandwiches. I sincerely hope that Club Med resigns and extends the property lease for a long period of time. If so, then some upgrades can be done which I discussed with the Chief of the Village. But most importantly, the club needs to remain and maintain the relaxed adult only atmosphere!! If you want to trip over baby strollers and hear screaming kids this place is not for you...lol. I love this place and go twice per year.
This was my first experience with Club Med and first trip to Grace Bay, Turks & Caicos. From our arrival to our departure, Club Med made our experience extraordinary. The staff offers nothing short of constant smiles, laughter and happiness. They are very hard workers and it certainly shows! Between the food, entertainment, sport activities, staff and beautiful surroundings, I am very much so looking forward to returning! Thank you Club Med!
The room was small but perfectly adequate for two ppl who didn't spend much time in it. Comfortable beds, good shower and steps from the beach. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful. Eleanor in the destinations Dept. Was terrific. Food was great! If you are going to drink beer and prefer a premium brand ask for the six pack discount and save two bucks per beer!
This was our 4th visit and there will be many more. The beach is awesome and all of the staff members were super. We had a day of all rain and everyone went out of their way to help us have a good time despite the weather.Special kudos to Jennifer who baked AMAZING breads and desserts. Joshua who supplied us with perfectly cooked meats of every variety and Liz who was smiling while she served us food.The sailing staff of Joey (potential model according to my wife), Pirate, Big 'D', and Britt who did everything possible to make sure our sailing was awesome. We had big winds and big waves, yet they still gave lessons, helped us navigate the surf and always had a big smile for the guests.If you go, remember the food, the people and the beach are fantastic, the rooms are small, but when you are asleep, who cares. Also, the dinning hall moved to the building next to the tennis courts temporarily due to a fire in the main building, but the temporary building has tons of outdoor seating, great views of the beach and ocean, as well as more peace and quiet. I would vote to keep the dining there.Enjoy your trip.
