Sue’s Reviews

 

Location: Turks and Caicos

Hotel: Club Med

Date Visited: March 15-22, 2008 (one week stay)

Room#: E2149 – Good location on the resort.  Interestingly, no rooms at this hotel have balconies or terraces. 

Weather Conditions: Weather was exceptional for the first three days until a tropical storm blew in that resulted in mixed sun and cloud conditions.  Evenings were a pleasant temperature as well.

Snorkeling:  Hotel provides a snorkel boat that goes out twice a day, 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.  We saw an assortment of very large fish, as well as octopi.    There is really no snorkeling right off of the resort beach, but I did see one very large starfish in this area.

Beach: Amazing!   Incredible large, white, sandy beach that goes for miles in each direction.  Perfect if you like to walk the beaches.  The ocean was a beautiful colour of turquoise.  Pictures do not do this beach and ocean water justice!  The hotel offers beach towels as well as sun umbrellas.

Food: Overall good.  Excellent breads of all kinds are offered at the main buffet, Grace Bay.  We did not like the beer, Turks Head, and preferred to buy Corona.   Liquors were of a good variety and you could get premium brands for an additional cost.  Sharkie’s Bar located at the beach’s edge, offered amazing entertainment an hour or so before sunset.

Service:  Good. Personal service upon arrival in that you get escorted to you room by a staff member who  provided helpful information.

Opinions/Tips:  Great little open-air shops and small pub are located directly off of the beach, just east of Club Med.  

Would I return: To Turks and Caicos Island definitely, but not necessarily to Club Med.
