Point Grace or T&C Club?

Can anyone offer advice? Which would be better for a 10 year anniversary trip? We'd like something relatively high end, quiet and romantic with not many children! We've already been to Parrot Cay but would like to be closer to golf on the main island this time around. Thanks in advance.

Sorry - I meant Grace Bay Club versus T&C Club!

I'll compare all 3 (just in case):

T&C Club: very quiet boutique hotel. It gives the feeling of a home away from home. It's gorgeous, and does allow children, but you'll only see a couple of them, if any at all. (I am guilty of taking my 6 year old there.) It's on a super quiet stretch of beach. While people attend to questions you may have, it's not as pampering as the other 2. They offer great specials, my favorite being having your pictures taken by Tropical Imaging-the pictures they take around the property and beach of you will be gorgeous. It's more upscale than say, RWI or Sands, but not quite as upscale as Point Grace or Grace Bay Club. It's a little more laid back, a little more like a home away from home. It's on the end of Grace Bay Beach, on a fairly quiet stretch, you won't have more than maybe 2 or 3 more couples on that section. The lots next to where it sit are empty, and the property sits back, so probably the most quiet. It includes a full breakfast, and the food is good-not quite as upscale as the other 2. You probably need a car to get to other restaurants. (or cabs.) It's a 2 minute walk to excellent snorkeling, yet on a gorgeous sandy stretch of Grace Bay. They provide you with snorkel masks on the beach.

Point Grace is also small, gorgeous pool, beautiful property. Children are allowed, but I've never really seen too many there. There are signs around the pool reminding you it's a quiet area, so quiet you're going to get. It has no neighbor property on one side, and a more residential property on the other, so other than people walking by, the "point" of the beach it's on is fairly quiet. The pool area has a "zen" feeling to it, and the Spa has little huts facing the beach. You can walk to numerous porperties for restaurants, and you can walk to shopping. It's pretty much in the middle of Grace Bay Beach.

Grace Bay Club is ultra luxurious and upscale, probably compared to a Ritz or Four Seasons. The original resort is adults only, the villa side and estate side allows families. It has 2 restaurants, and Anocoana restaurant does not allow children under 12 to eat there. It has the world's first infinity bar, a long bar that looks like it's spilling into the ocean. This is probably the least quiet of your choices, but probably the one with the most services. (sorbet and bottled water on the beach, etc.) It includes a continental breakfast. It is a huge property, and probably the most crowded of the 3. Great people watching, and probably have a celebrity or 2 staying there. The Estates section is still being built, and in front of it Villas Del Mar is still being built. But when at the pool and beach you'd never know there was construction. Their pools (2) actually face the ocean, unlike the other 2 properties. One pool is adults only, and has daybeds-very romantic. It is walking distance to excellent restaurants, including Coco Bistro, and Coyaba-the best on the island. Their restaurant Anocoana, is probably the most romantic restaurant you'll ever go to-the setting is magical.


Hope my comparisions have helped!

Is your trip during school breaks? If not, kids shouldn't be an issue. We stayed at the Grace Bay Club for our 7th but it was during school season so no kids at all. We loved it.
