What attracts families to vacation at Beaches Turks and Caicos?
Carlie: Vacation for everyone at every age. Time for families to grow together and enjoy everything at the resort or do nothing at all.
There are 21 dining option, all included in the price. All inclusive literally means it is all included … even the tipping. Beaches resort has a strict no tipping policy. All food, drinks, snacks is unlimited. You check into the hotel put your wallet in the safe and it is all included. Relax, explore, use the water park and more.
It has been voted “Best Beaches” in the Caribbean for several years in a row. Pictures don’t justify the beauty of this island. It’s located on 12 miles of white powder sand and turquoise ocean. Grace Bay beach is the name of the beach that the resort is located.
Airport transportation to the resort is all included. After you go through customs at the airport look for Beaches and they will greet you with a water and assist with luggage. Within minutes they take you to the resort and the drive is quick and easy as well. Once you’ve checked in to the resort, you will be escorted to your room. Check-in time for the resort is 3pm sometimes your room will be ready earlier and if not you have plenty of dining options to choose from while waiting for your room to be ready.

The family resort has something for everyone at every age. Kids camps are included. It is nice for a family getaway to spend time together, but it is also nice for the parents to have some alone time on vacation as well. Certified nannies are at the resort to help take care of the little ones and there’s no shortage of actives for older kids as well.
The accommodations. This resort huge! You have 4 sections at Beaches Turks – Caribbean, French, Italian and Key West. Each section has something great to offer. And no matter which section you stay you can utilize each section.
So many pools. This location has the best beaches in the Caribbean at Grace Bay, but it’s nice to change it up and explore the pools.
Family owned business. The founder and owner of Beaches/Sandals Resorts Gordon “Butch” Stewart started Sandals Resorts in 1981 (this resort is only for couples) and started the Beaches brand in 1997 for families. Today Deputy Chairman Adam Stewart (son of Butch) is really involved with the company. This a privately owned company and they are passionate about their brand. You actually may see one of the family members at one of the resort properties as they spend a lot of time at each one of their locations themselves as well.
Child care. It is nice for a family getaway to spend time together but it is also nice for the parents to get some alone time. You have babysitting available as an option for dinner or throughout the day. This resort has some all adult dining options for dinner.
