Trip Report Another trip report with pictures Turks and Caicos

Jump to last reply

I just returned again, from my obssession, Turks and Caicos. this was a last minute short trip without hubby, but I figured short is better than none at all.

I stayed at the new Gansevoort Wymara. It is a gorgeous new resort, that actually blends different things well. For example, the music played at the pool sets ambience, yet kids love the pool. It's modern, yet comfortable. chic and pretty, yet has an excellent kid's club. The bathrooms are like a Kohler commercial: water falls from the ceiling to fill the tub, and the showers are rows of sprays like rain. The colors are fantastic, white couches with huge prints of the gorgeous local beaches on the walls.

Dinners were short but sweet. Wed night ribs at Tiki hut always please the kids. Thursday night was Hemmingways, were we ate with most of the "Destination Experts" from Tripadvisor. Was trully a fun time. Friday night I ate at Gansevoort. It was good, and service was excellent. Because of the newness of the place, I did have to scrutinize the bills there, as there were some confusions. Things were cleared up quickly and pleasantly, service is eager to please. Sat. had tapas at O'Soleil.

The only excursion this time was all day Caicos Dream Tours. All day wasn't enough! Some of the Destination Experts joined us. Snorkeled the reef, dove for conch. Had picnic at Ft. George with conch salad, bbq chicken, corn on cob, chocolate chip brownies. I couldn't tell you if it was terrific because of the food, the setting or the company--it just was. After, went to other side of Ft. George to snorkel for sand dollars, then off to Half Moon Bay. An excellent day and highly recommended!

Some pictures of the short, but sweet trip:
