Club Med on Turks & Caicos?

Any opinions on the Club Med on Turks and Caicos? I'm looking for a good place for a 24 yr old couple to relax for a few days on the beach, with the opportunity for some activities. And is January an ok time to visit T&C weather-wise?

Keep in mind that T & C is not very far south -- it is really only as far South as Miami if you look at the map. Therefore, it will be cooler than other destinations that are deeper in the Caribbean. I know someone who went to the Bahamas for Christmas and the weather was awful. I hear Spring is the best time to go there (we're going in April) For a trip report on Club Med, go to www.caribtravelnews.com

Turks & Caicos are a GROUP of islands. I think the island you are asking about is Providenciales. If you are going to go someplace you should at least know where you are going.

Hey Anon, if you are going to correct someone make sure YOUR information is correct. There is NO island by the name on Providenciales, that is a CITY. The islands in the GROUP that go by the name Turks & Caicos are West Caicos, Middle Caicos, North Caicos East Caicos South Caicos, Grand Turk and Salt Cay. There are many more that are not even named.
Next time you respond to someone just answer the question, if you have a comment please don't be so condescending. Not everyone is a "well traveled" as you.

Karen,
(We'll just ignore the last poster's rude unnecessary comment).

Turks and Caicos will certainly be warm enough at that time. Let nothing deter you from going. I went last winter w/ my boyfriend (we are both 23) and we had a great time. The beach stretches forever and you can literally take 40-minute walks along it w/o encountering other people. The nice thing about Club Med is that you can lounge around as much as you want, but when you get bored, there is always something for you to do. Have a great time, and post a trip report on this board when you get back so we know how it went!

I agree with dixie - Anon's comment was rude and unnecessary.

Well Dixie, I just returned from there and Providenciales is definitely an island, not a city.
Karen:The locals said that in December the water goes into the mid 70's and as the hotel pools are seldom heated, they get rather cool. For exampl, the diving instructors use cold water suits in the pools to do the learn to scuba classes.

I went in 4/98 -- it has the most beautiful beach & water! Not sure about the weather -- we'll be in Nassau this Xmas. The beach and snorkeling on the free boat were terrific -- it fact it was the BEST snorkeling I've ever done and I've been Caribbean, Hawaii & Mexico. The food and accommodations are OK. I recommend the dining area where you make reservations for a treat away from the crowds at the buffets. There is also a first class golf course nearby - totally unexpected. Also, learn to trapeze !?! Bring your own sunscreen & film - very expensive, everything is imported and there is a hefty import tax.

Better do your homework Dixie before you fly off at the lip again.

Anon, I don't think you need to be rude to anyone on this sight. Why can't you just be polite?
