Trip Report Trip Report-just back from Provo

Jump to last reply

After all your help with planning our trip I wanted to say thanks and attemp a "Trip Report" Apologies if it is too long, too short, too much or not enough detail.

Monday-Arrived Provo, no problems en route. Quickly moved through the airport. Grace Bay Car rentals waiting for us with our van. Super nice fellow. Then off to the Regent Grand. WOW! Booked through VRBO and could not have been more pleased. 3 bdrm, corner unit. Views of gorgeous Grace Bay Beach. One side, empty lot with ongoing construction-no noise or big deal. Late Lunch at Danny Buoys across the street. Great Fish and Chips. Not a fan of the local beer, Turks Head?? Grocery, unpack and walk the beach. Early morning so early to bed!

Tuesday-Coffee on the balcony with that view! Could have sat there all week but didn't. Beach, pool, beach, pool. Boys went parasailing with Captain Marvin. Nice, informative fellow. Dinner at Bella Luna. Good food, Adjusting to the heat! Not overly friendly service but an enjoyable meal.

Wednesday-Balcony/view!!!!! Attempted to find Pelican Beach for the conch shells. THINK we found Long Bay Beach (?) found some conch shells there. Then beach, pool. Dinner at the Tiki Hut. Great food, exceptionally nice folks, view of the boats. Wow!

Thursday-Balcony/view (Ok so I started every morning the same way!) Family off to Coral Gardens and Windsong to snorkel. Schedule kids to SNUBA, no room for us. Beach, pool. Snacks and drinks at Regent Pool then take out pizza from Pizza, Pizza. Good stuff.

Friday-Same morning! Beach, pool. Shopped a bit. Had dinner at The Saltmills cafe. Good food. Really nice folks. Another great day........

Saturday-Snorkel Trip with Caicos Dream Tours. DelRoy and Ashley picked us up off the beach at the Grand. SUPER outing. Snorkeled, "hunted' for Conch. Took us to Half Moon Bay and checked out the Iguanas. Made us Conch salad. Really a good day. Back for pool time. Date night for us. Went to Magnolia wine Bar for wine and cheese (Pretty view) Yoshi for wine and sushi. (Really good) Infinity bar for Martinis. Go after dark for the full effect.

Sunday-Kids SNUBA'd with Jodi at Windsong and loved it. She was so calm and relaxed with them. I wish we would have booked earlier so we could have gone too. Back to pool at Regent then beach. Dinner at Hemminways. Huge portions, food just so so. I so dislike the last night of a great vacation...............

Monday-Up for last view, off to shop a bit. Dropped off van. Both flights a bit delayed, no big deal. Home and blue...................

We loved Turks and Caicos/Provo. The people are so friendly. The Regent Grand is beautiful, warm, welcoming staff that can't do enough for you. Their pool is so pretty. Definately somewhere we'd like to visit again.

The weather was steamy, hot, sunny, perfect! (One fellow told us it rained every day the week before, for hours at a time so we were glad we missed that!)

Thanks for your help. If I knew how to post pics I would. 'I'll see if my techie son can help. (Of course you all know what abeautiful place this is!)

Thank you all for your help. I'll try to answer any questions I can for those planning a trip.
