Beaches Turks and Caicos

This resort came highly recommended by friends with children, however; they haven't been to the resort in 4 years. I have read in online forums people saying the rooms are outdated and small, the food at the restaurants is bad, they've gotten bed bugs, the security on the beach is low and all around it was a waste of money. My husband and I are used to staying in 5 star boutique hotels but with 3 kids, we were exploring our options. Has anyone been there recently with an opinion? Thanks so much!

It's not a boutique hotel. It's a big resort (nice but big), so if you are looking for that kind of intimate experience, you just won't find it there. However, the resort gets consistently strong reviews.

Frankly, I'd rather stay at a nicer regular hotel like 7 Stars that offers condo-style rooms and eat at restaurants. Unless you need or want the giant pool and included food and drinks, there's no advantage to staying at an AI in Provo. It's a beautiful, fairly safe island with good independent restaurants, not at all like Jamaica or the DR, where you are unlikely to leave the resort grounds.

Look at The Somerset Resort on Grace Bay. We were there for Christmas ( Have stayed before) Wonderful suites ( Condos) excellent restaurants & many near by . Beaches is huge& crowded. Somerset is clean, beautiful pools, nice big beachfront & nice staff.

Beaches Resort was completely refreshed and updated after the 2018 hurricanes, so I don't know where the bad reviews come from.

In general the rooms are smaller than other resorts, just by nature of it being an AI

If there was a bed bug outbreak, the island would know, haven't heard of any

I don't know if accommodations would consider it 5 star compared to other gorgeous 5 star properties on island, but it will be better than your friends from 4 years ago because everything was refreshed and fixed after hurricanes

However if you want truly 5 stars, check out: (they're not AI)
