Turks and Caicos, Resorts on a Budget

Jump to last reply

I'm just posting this in case it's helpful for anyone else looking for something similar... We were looking for a 4 start resort experience in Turks and Caicos, but had a limited budget and were surprised to see how expensive the hotels and airfare were (in the May timeframe.) Based on a recommendation from Blamona on this forum I called Turks and Caicos Reservations. I worked with Sonya there, as well as Susan and Val, who were all very helpful. Sonya sent me several options, and talked back and forth (several times!), and was aware of "flash" sales and specials at each resort.

My husband and I decided to spend 3 nights at Seven Stars for a busier/downtown like experience so we could walk to restaurants, have a large a pool etc. They had a special for an oceanfront room for 50% the price. Then 4 nights at Windsong, further up the beach, close to snorkelling at the Coral Reef. They have a very small, standard size room at a great price, and a beautiful resort. I did also really like West Bay Club and it sounds like that is a great resort and choice as well. However we wanted to spend some of the time more in the "hub", so this worked out pricing wise...

Furthermore, we found a direct flight out of NY for $400 and will take ground transportation to NY. Otherwise our tickets were looking around $900 each, so this freed up more for hotels, taxis, dinners etc.

I found this forum and all the great advice so helpful and plan to post my TR...!
