Fodor's Review

North Caicos islanders Susan and Clifford Gardiner built this small, palmetto-fringed hotel in the 1980s on the quiet, mostly deserted Whitby Beach. The couple's friendliness and insights into island life, as well as Susan's home-baked bread and island dishes (Cliff's favorite is her cracked conch and island lobster), are the best features. Over the years upkeep of the property has been somewhat inconsistent, but rooms are nevertheless comfortable. Best are the cottage-style

rooms (numbered 1 through 6), which are exactly five steps from the windswept beach. There's also a gazebo beach bar for lazy evenings hanging out with new friends.
