Booked a vacation to Turks and Caicos due to recommendations from several friends. After research we decided to reserve the regent palms. I am blown away by the hotel. The elegance, beauty and cleanliness is second to none. As we walk in we are greeted by very friendly and welcoming staff. A guide takes us on a tour to the resort before showing our room. We couldn't stop smiling when we entered the room. It was designed with beautiful decor and furniture. We had a kitchen , huge bedroom and gorgeous bathroom with every possible toiletry. It was spotless and things were organized flawlessly. The hotel has a gorgeous pool which swims up to the jacuzzi and restaurant. Food in all of the restaurants is delicious and prepared as if I'm dining in a 5 star French restUrant in nyc. Yes it's a bit pricey and they do add gratuity in the form of a service charge , but these type or vacations don't come cheap. The staff is very attentive and always respecting your presence and what you need. The beach is gorgeous and all non motorized water sports are free. Definitely recommend going snorkeling. I can go on and on but if you want a breathtaking resort in Turks and Caicos definitely stay in this one.
My wife and I recently stayed at Villa Del Mar, and we truly enjoyed our stay here! Before I get into the details, here's my summary: Exceptional Value. Excellent Property. Good Service.
I hope the following information will help you make a decision about staying at Villa Del Mar. Scroll to the bottom of the review to get a few tips to make your stay the best it can be.
We loved our stay at Villa Del Mar, and particularly enjoyed the luxurious rooms at a great price! The property is clean, well kept, and has some amazing views. The staff was friendly and helpful, and their recommendations all turned out to be great ones. The hotel lacks in the food and beverage department, but we knew this going in. The location is so good that you'll never have to worry about walking a few minutes away to get great food and drinks, even some that are right on the beach! I did speak with the Director of Development and Operations, who said they're building across the street and will be adding a restaurant and bar. You can still get drinks at the bar by the pool, but we rarely stayed when we wanted food or drinks. Location is great! Do NOT be worried about the fact the hotel isn't "on the beach." You could easily stay at a larger resort that is technically on the beach, but would have an even further walk to the sand than our walk from Villa Del Mar. You're literally 2 minutes from the beach at Villa Del Mar. Location is great!
The only downside was a strong scent of wh
The room was clean - especially nice that it was equipped with a washer & dryer. Right on one of the most beautiful beaches and always easy to find a spot on the beach or at the pool. The restaurant was AMAZING - one of the best meals of our trip.
You will not go wrong with choosng this property! Very clean and the staff was great ... matched the beauty of the beach that it sits on. Thank you to all the staff who treated us great, we could not have asked for better service. Had a great time and are looking forward to a return visit.
This hotel is amazing. The beach and water are also out of this world. It's a better beach than some of the other hotels down the same strip of land. It shares a beach with the Gansevoort Hotel which was much more expensive for no good reason. I would definitely HIGHLY recommend this hotel.
We found the Royal West Indies Resort beautiful and well kept. Great location on Grace Bay... great swimming and lounging ... lush tropical landscaping throughout the complex ...really a nice complex.... If there is a concern, it is with the island of Providenciales itself. Very little history, minor crime (the rental car companies recommend you leave your cars unlocked so the thieves don't damage the cars when breaking in...seriously, that is printed in several magazines and island guides !) There is no public transportation systems, food and drink are very expensive.... literally zero nightlife ...so YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO CHILL...
