... active vacationers and many seem to know how to sail. I don't know how fair that is but that is his impression. He likes to say that in Austin, the windsurfing community is mostly, Europeans, software developers or European software developers. =) However, during our stay here, there seems to be a large contingency of French Canadians - not only at Club Med but all over TCI. This is strange to me since Bermuda is very similar ...
... a minute or so I had got him off and running, and he was so grateful there were almost tears in his eyes. Almost.
Now please explain this to me. Why is it that when families come on holiday the husbands are sent to do the laundry. I'm different, I am happy to do the washing because it gives me something useful to do. But all the other men I meet in laundrettes are complete strangers to domestic equipment. They flounder around, totally confused not ...
First order of time off business, after cold beers were cracked of course, was snorkeling off the beautiful reefs here in Provo (thanks again Wilson for the kick ass gear). Literally within one minute of jumping in the aqua blue ocean a gigantic sting ray swam by us, spotted like a tiger, it effortlessly glided past us ignoring as we tried to keep up. We hit the jackpot just off the beach as Smith's Reef was teaming with marine life. Yellow and red snapper, Nemo fish, ...
Today was our ride with Provo Ponies. We did the 90 minute morning ride. The weather on Grace Bay was cloudy and breezy, but 10 minutes away at Long Bay Beach it was blazingly hot. There were about 8 people plus 2 guides. The ride to the beach was hot and uneventful, but the beach more than made up for it. My horse was in the front and just plunged right into the water. I've never ridden a horse ...
... night in SFO, waiting for the next flight that left when we were arriving in Newark. The flight was ok, but I was seated next to a guy who, while not overly big, was in a seat that wasn't overly small, but which resulted in the perfect combination of bigness and smallness to have him sleeping on me for most of the flight. I threw my wool coat over my head and pretended to be anywhere but there. This plan worked until we hit terrifyingly strong turbulence and I had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Northwest Point Resort Providenciales
Very peaceful and relaxing!
We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of our stay at Northwest Point Resort this Thanksgiving. Loved the pool and hot tub and we rarely left the property! The location is great for folks who want to be away from the high-rise construction going in on the Grace Bay side of the island.
The northwest point is virtually undeveloped and that was just what we were looking for. Loved the fully furnished condo units with a full kitchen and w/d, and we used the outside grill almost every night for dinner. They have sattelite TV there, so there are lots of good movies to watch at night.
There's a restaurant on the property, which is not too expensive, but it's worth a stop to the IGA when you get into town, if you want to cook your own meals in the condo.
It's windy on this side of the island, so the pool was a better choice to hang out at than the beach. The primo beach is still Grace Bay, but hey- you can always drive down there to visit & snokel. Also, rent a car! For the cab price you'd pay to get there and back to the airport, you better off renting a sub-compact.
Great resort if you want peace and seclusion
We had a pre Thanksgiving get away with our friends and stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean front unit .(B1-207) The view was spectacular! Went snorkling about 100 yards down the beach and saw nurse sharks ,sea turtles, sting rays and lots of fish. The pool and beach were very clean and NO CROWDS! Went walking on the beach for about 3 miles and never saw another soul.Our footprints were the only ones in the sand. The food on island is very good. Ate at Palms(pricey),Paradise Sailing, Hemmingways, Baci Smokies and Sharkbite. The condo had a very well equipped kitchen. We went to the IGA for groceries and the selection was very good. Had breakfast on the condo balcony and lunch on the beach everyday. If you want a relaxing vacation Northwestpoint Resort is the place to go
Just returned from nine days in paradise. We stayed at Northwest Point Resort on the quiet end of the island.
The resort was lovely. Stayed in a great two-bedroom condo with an incredible view of the ocean. If you are seeking solitude, lush surroundings, one incredible beach, 50 different shades of turquoise blue water, then this is the place for you. There is so much natural beauty surrounding this place. The pool is lovely and the plantings around it are lush. At night you can sit on the beach and the stars are right on top of you. There is no light pollution at night on this end of the island. Check out "Where When How TCI" Sky Watch page. It is a great guide for everything happening on the island.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Cindy and Mike arranged anything we needed. We rented a car to get to the great restaurants in Turtle Cove and Blue Hills. We were bummed, though. Smokey's Restaurant was opening the restaurant @ Northwest Point Resort on the day we were leaving. Smokey's is a great place in Blue Hills. Should be a great addition.
We are already booking our stay at this place for the Spring of '08.
Peace and quiet
Northwest Point Resort, Providenciales,Turks and Caicos
Quiet and Beautiful
From Ben & Linda Nikolic from Chicago Illinois
My wife and I just wanted to get away from the world for a week. Boy, did we find a place for that. Providenciales is not that big of an Island but has a lot of places to stay. We were looking for a quiet place just to kick back and relax, Northwest Point was just that place. You can walk the beach for miles and not see another person. We stayed in a one bedroom Condo and it was very clean and roomy it had everything we needed. We were on the second floor and had a great view of the Ocean and the large pool. Great Resort but enough of that.
The food is excellent on the Island. We went to Magnolia's for a great dinner at sunset, it's a little pricey but well worth it (Great wine List) For casual food the tiki hut and Sharkbite are good and reasonably priced.
If you like watersports Diving,snorkling etc you make your plans right at Northwest Point even rent a car there (You will need one to get around ) I can't say enough about Cindy and Mike they made our stay so special we can't wait to go back. We made a reservation for May.
Northwest Point Resort
We have been traveling to Providencials in the Turks and Caicos for many years, but when we discovered Northwest Point Resort we knew instantly it was the place for us. Talk about tranquil and beauty! We felt like we were on a great estate, with pool, beach, hot tub and peace. If you are looking for rest, off the beaten track and business of the overly developed other end of the Island, this place is for you. The management offers discount car rentals and anything you need (even an IGA Super market) is only about 15 minutes away. This place is our new love.
An Extraodinary Resort
This is an extraordinary resort, located on a secluded spit of land on Providenciales, far from the congestion of downtown and the crowded Grace Bay area. I would have given it an "Excellent" rating, if the restaurant had been open when I visited. However, I understand the restaurant is now open, and I look forward to returning before February.
The beaches and waters by this place are beautiful. The condo areas are beautifully maintained, and the staff is courteous and efficient. It was delightful to stay here.
I have just returned back from Northwest Point and it was wonderful!!! The weather was great, hotter than usual and ocean water was like a bathtub... There's been a lot of progress since my last visit. Roads are paved just short of the resort makeing traveling much easier. My room was pool side but from the balcony there was a great view of the ocean. I could hear the waves crashing in the far distance. Very private, quite! Staff was very freindly and helpful and I couldn't have asked for more. Can't wait until my next visit!
I recently went to this resort with three of my friends. We rented the three bedroom condo. I have to say the staff was top notch. They bent over backwards to make us happy. It was my birthday and the birthday for one additional person in my party. Mike, the manager, was able to arrange for cakes to be delivered to our room. When we needed a dvd player, the other manager gave us her own personal dvd player to borrow. Now you can't get service like that at another resort. The place is more of a condo complex, than a full fledged resort. If you are looking for 1000 count sheets and downed beds, then don't come to this resort. however, if you want a nice, private resort with top notch service, then go to this resort. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The beach was beautiful and we were the only persons on the entire bearch. The rooms were well stocked with furniture and kitchenware. The rooms were were tastefully furnished and clean. In addition, the cleaning staff was very professional and thorough. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation!!
Ticket to Paradise
We have just returned from a wonderful week at Northwest Point Resort in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. You can't beat this place if you are looking to get away from it all and experience tranquility, peace and beauty. A huge variety of bougainvilla along with mandivilla, plumbago and other bright flowers, complement the deep green banana and coconut palms. Cindy made us feel so welcome when we checked in. She quickly informed us of the many ammenities available to us during our stay such as the fitness center, well-stocked library, kayaks and barbecue grill. After walking the beach and enjoying the sunset, we grilled our dinner and enjoyed it by the beautifully lit pool. (Rent a car at the airport and stop by the IGA supermarket.) After dinner, we floated in the pool and gazed at the amazing starshow. Being so far away from city lights, you have an awesome view. Mike came by and offered to turn off the pool lights for an even better view. He was also most helpful in suggesting snorkeling spots, things to do and places to go. The entire staff was pleasant and unobtrusively attentive. Unit 1-104 is beatifully decorated, comfortable, well-equipped, safe, and quiet. Spectacular snorkeling!
We were going for a quiet retreat and found a wonderful paradise away from the crowds and then to discover we could just walk out the door to the beach and find what the resort tells you is the truth! Some of the absolute world's best snorkeling and diving!!! And the short drive into town to some of the best restaurants--there was not enough time. We enjoy the food at home at Myrtle Beach and Charleston and these island restaurants are more than comparable. The atmosphere we found there was true island with sophistication. We are frequent guests of the Abaco Islands, but we will be frequenting this Caribbean island more. We are already planning to go back and do some more exploring on the island but we could not have asked for a better, more relaxing resort. The outdoor pool was heated and the hot tub right on the ocean was like a dream. We understand it is under new management and the people we met were more than accomodating and extremely helpful.
