Turks and Caicos Accommodations Question - West Bay Club

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip with my extended family for November to Turks and Caicos. We have never been to T&C before but have been elsewhere in the Caribbean. We are going for 4 nights from Boston and looking to spend about $3000 per couple (hotel, air and some food but expect to spend more on any activities etc) with some flexibility.

Our group is my parents (in their 70s), brother and wife (30s) and my husband, myself and our two kids (4 and 8 yo). I had assumed that our budget wouldn't allow us to go to Turks and Caicos but a travel agent found us relatively inexpensive flights and recommended the Windsong. I see the Windsong has great reviews but in looking it up, I also noticed the West Bay Club which got slightly better reviews. People seemed to think that the West Bay Club beach was better (wider and less crowded).

My brother/SIL and parents would each get a studio and we would get a one bedroom for my husband, kids and self with the kids sleeping on the sofa bed (hopefully). I priced out both hotels and it is about $100 more/night for the one bedroom at the West Bay Club and $70 more for the studio.

Any experience/advice on whether the West Bay Club is worth the extra expense? Am I splitting hairs?

Both look very nice to me and I am thrilled to have a kitchen with the kids. I expect we will spend most of our time at the beach and by the pool with some island exploring as well, so the facilities - although perhaps not the room specifically - are very important. I expect we'll eat most dinners out but early and somewhere kid friendly with perhaps one night somewhere nicer if we can find a babysitter.

I am trying to get a sense of whether there is a noticeable difference between the two properties.
Thanks!
