Travel Blogs from Providenciales
For some of you this will be the last entry you read before I get back home. For those only reading these blogs at work you'll not get my last ones until Monday, when it will all be over. For the rest of you I will continue posting entries until we reach the Orlando Airport on Saturday.
So how would I summarise my first cruise? Well, generally I have hated it. On a positive note this ship is amazing, and the musical hooters very clever. ...
... our stay here in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos.
We are about to pull the lines and set off for our 45-48 crossing to Puerto Rico. Guess I should stop acting like a Captain's wife and get to work. Hydrated, check, motion sickness meds, check, balance bracelets, check. Off we go to the next island adventure. Not much time off in PR but I'm sure we will make the most of every minute.

... welcomed us to the boat and then we headed out. There were a total of 10 of us, and Alex was the only child.
When I go on boat trips, I like to use my GPS to make a track of where we go so later I can put it into a mapping program to see where we actually went. Alas, when I tried to turn it on, I discovered that the batteries were dead. Oops. Anyway, it took about 45 minutes to get to the first spot. The ...

We grab our luggage and are through immigration and customs within 10 minutes. Our immigration agent was most pleasant, wishing Steve happy birthday and recommending the island beer- TurksHead ( ...
... open-air place on the beach with white picnic tables, we quickly realized that we had stumbled upon a very merry wedding rehearsal dinner. Dozens of people, some of whom looked like they were going to a New York charity gala, lingered by the tables looking like they had just gone to foodie heaven. And no wonder! Food at the Da Conch Shack is simple but served in massive, delicious portions. Ben and I plopped ourselves along one of the beach-facing counters and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Point Grace Providenciales
Elegance in Turks
My husband and I stayed at Point Grace in February 2003 in one of their ocean front one bedroom suites. The setting was just wonderful. We loved our uninterrupted view of the water and we did not have problems getting lounge chairs.The de stress massage we receive shortly after our arrival was heavenly. We returned during our stay for other treatments as Rosanna and Edmonde are miracle workers!We would encourage anyone to visit Point Grace.
Point Grace was lovely. Is it kid friendly? ..no but is it accommodating? absolutely. The accommodations would be hard to beat anywhere with a beautiful beach with terrific access and a very relaxing pool, the Spa is first rate and the service is terrific. Grace Cottage is lovely but our meal missed the mark and we decided to sample the other restaurants. The price of the food as well as the inconsistent quality was a bit of surprise. However, that was not specific to Point Grace. Overall, from the transportation from the airport through our stay if we needed anything they accommodated us and made it a very memorable vacation. We had an 80 year old and a 9 year old and finding something everyone enjoys is tough. Point Grace succeeded in making everyone happy. That is no small accomplishment.
Best in Luxury
This is the second time I have stayed at Point Grace and I have been treated really well both times. For a woman travelling on her own this is essential. The first time I stayed was last September when it was quiet, this time it was at full capacity. Both times the staff were gracious and friendly. If you are looking for Luxury this is the place for you. The setting is also very romantic By the pool and on the beach there are plenty of chaise lounge for everyone. The food is excellent and well priced considering Turks and Caicos is a very expensive place to live! So if you are looking for a luxurious holiday or a romantic break, Point Grace is the place for you.
we recently returned from a vacation at Point Grace . and to give you a little perspective we have vacationed in the carribean at Little Dix Bay, capjaluca,and caneel bay.......point grace is not in this category. point grace is a codo project first and foremost , don't confuse it with a resort . terrific beach ,but you should reserve your lounge early, even more so at the beach. the spa staff...edmond and raseanna are top notch, perhaps the best we've ever had . the spa itself is nothing more than two huts over looking the beach ......nothing like the hall of fame facility at the Ritz naples, fla for your dining pleasure ,skip grace's cottage ....way over priced.. $215 for dinner for two and a modest bottle of wine .....average food . do eat at the following Simba , coco bistro , anacona, & coyaba good golf course nearby, there is a fitness facilityor so called approx 1/2 mile away ...could be the worst excuse for one i have ever seen you'll need taxi's to get around , I recomend Sherman Taylor very reliable ...don't bother renting a car there is no shopping worth pursuing ,and the island itself is not very pretty once you leave the beach. also be aware of the fact that there is a ton of construction taking place ....one project is starting right next to point grace ....sooo book the west side if you go if we ever go back , i would investigate meridien club, and grace bay club.. Point Grace is frankly not worth the expense
Was planning a stay at Grace Bay - but was so appalled at their inability to accommodate our simple wishes - that we went elsewhere. We are frequent travelers - and always stay at luxury properties. I have a two year old son who has stayed at some of the best resorts in the world. We tried to book at Point Grace and was informed that we would have to take a two bedroom suite (at nearly twice the price) because the crib requires its own bedroom.
The Spa Massage, Magnifique
We visited the Spa during our stay at Point Grace,
Be sure to request Edmonde for facials, massage and experience excellence! My skin feels like a newborn almost. A telephone reservation is suggested. Edmonde is from Paris. We experienced a late breakfast at the resort though service was slow, some items were not available on the menue it was good.
Better than expected
I had read all of the previous reviews for Point Grace and must say was concerned prior to departing.
I found most of what I read to be erroneous. Point Grace and its' staff could not have been better. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay and would do it again. The rooms were great, the beach perfect, and if you like to lie back and relax, there is no better.
So skip the review reading and enjoy Point Grace.
Overall quite good
I read the previous review and I agree with some of it, but overall our experience at Point Grace was good. The Cottages restaurant is overpriced and pretentious, but you don't have to eat there. There are lots of great places nearby (Caicos Cafe, Terrace, Mango Reef). The service was good - maybe the guest revolt in January had a positive effect? Sheets were changed everyday. The people were very friendly. Yes there's a rush for pool spots in the morning, but what hotel has figured that out (except the Four Seasons on the Big Island)? Taxis are not the hotel's issue. We rented a car. The facility is great and the beach is spectacular. I wouldn't hestiate to go back.
We stayed at Point Grace in February 2002. The facility itse;f is very striking. The rooms at luxurious and the ladscaping and pool are beautiful. It sits on beautiful Grace Bay beach. The service, while friendly, left much to be desired. They failed to schedule two requested spa services. They failed to respond to a report of a broken toilet for more than 8 hours, which subsequently broke again within hours after being repaired. They "forgot" to call for a cab when requested even though they had a written record of the request. We were told by a local spa employee that this happens on a regular basis. The elevator to the third floor suite we were staying in was broken the entire time of our visit. When check-out time arrived they insisted that our pre-paid stay had not yet been paid for. We're used to "Caribbean time", and these service problems had nothing to do with that. This was just inconsistent service at a resort whose rates should promise much more than we got. Next time we visit Provo, we will stay at the Grace Bay Club.
We stayed at the Point Grace with friends over the new Year, attracted by its own marketing blurb and glossy brochure. The hotel is a lovely hotel (although a long way from any facilities such as shops etc) and sits on a lovely beach amidst a large number of other lower star "all inclusive" hotels. We stayed in one of the "cottages" around the pool for $650 per night incl taxes and were greatly under-impressed! Our experiences were:
