Which one of these is best?

We are looking for:
Luxurious Accomodations
Great Beach
Great Service

our choices:
Turks and Caicos Club
Coral Gardens

Where to stay...

Try Point Grace or the Turks & Caicos Club both nice small resorts. Major service issues at the Palms and expensive, and Coral Gardens just condos whose focus now is on Panama from their website.

One more option...

Postby Traveler » Fri Jan 06, 2006 9:34 pm

I think that I have taken out Coral Gardens and The Palms (due to service issues)

Between Point Grace and Turks and Caicos Club which one would you think is better?
I know that it really depends on the person etc...
We are looking for a place that is really beautiful ie great views, great beach and service. I definitely want to have beach service with loungers umbrellas etc on the beach.
But I would also like a place that we can go out in the evenings and get a drink at the bar -nothing wild but just nice dinner and restaurant bar.
Is T&C Club TOO quiet in the evenings?

Another option I was looking into is Parrot Cay... I don't hear many people talk about this one..is it on the same caliber?

Thanks
Traveler

I have been to Point Grace, never to T & C Club or Parrot Cay. PG sounds like it is what you are looking for. Very upscale, beautiful, luxury suroundings, great service at pool or beach. PG has a pool bar, but it closes at 6:00pm. Then the bar at Grace's Cottage opens. I do not know when it closes, it is not an happening bar. You can walk to Hemmingways at The Sands for that. We loved Point Grace and look forward to returning this summer. Hope this helps.

I have been to the palms and had a lovely time. I would not rule them out so quickly. The pool is lovely and the rooms are beautiful. The food at the Plams is good but too expensive for my tastes. You can eat at many other places on the island.

The service was fine for my family however, others may have had different expectations.
