Resorts in T&C

My buddy and I are going to T&C in early November (i'm female, he's male, we're just travel buddies with separate rooms). So many of the lodgings in T&C are condo/villas, and the big hotels are Beaches (very family oriented) and Club Med (not interested in communal vacation).

Any other resorts that you all like? Something with good location for dining and beach, a bit of vibe, not $$$$$ (more like $250 a night or less) Spa would be nice for me.

Thanks

Turks & Caicos is one of the most expensive Islands..do you mean $250 EACH per night? , if so you have options at $500/night. A 2 bedroom for $250.00/night probably will not be on the beach.

I do not want a condo. I'd like a simple, friendly hotel - one with a bar, close to restaurants, nice beach, good for two friends to spend time at the beach and hanging out together. Since we're going to be there for a week, "Beaches" doesn't appeal to me that much because it's so family-oriented, and eating the same food every night will get old, I'm thinking.

Is $250 for each room? or will you share a room at $250? (So each pays $125?)

You might want to look at the Sibonne. I think it is one of a few properties on the beach that is not a condo resort, but Sibonne is a more basic beach motel - good beach, good location, beach bar on premises. The only other beach front accommodatins that I can think of that is not a condo is the Turks & Caicos Club, but I don't think that is a fit for you because of location, price, and style. There also is a Comfort Suites located a block from the beach.

I'm also wondering if you have some misconceptions about condos on T&C. The condo resorts on Provo are run like hotels, and many have bars and restaurants. It's not like staying at some old condo without maid service and 1970s decor.

I have traveled solo to Provo a couple of times, and I have rented studio rooms at two of the mid-priced resorts - Royal West Indies and the Alexandra. If you don't want to share a one or two BR condo, you might want to consider separate studios. You should be able to find studio rooms at one of the mid-priced resorts for under $200/night in early November. The studios are like hotel rooms with a few extras -generally a small kitchenette area and washer/dryer and maybe a sitting area. Just because you stay in a condo doesn't mean that you have to cook or anything either.

Anyway, if you absolutely don't want to stay in a condo resort, you might have better luck somewhere else. Provo does not really have any large resorts besides the two AIs that you mentioned (neither would be more choice either for a vacation with a friend).

I hope this helps.

Check out Villa del Mar they are running a great sale right now. www.myvilladelmar.com You can get a one bedroom it has a den with a pull out couch and a full kitchen, also washer dryer.It doesn't have a bar or restaurant on property, but many within a very short walk.I believe they also have some kind of beach service.

If you'd be willing to share a room, you may want to look at Gansevoort -- I was there in July and its right on the beach, definitely has a "bit of vibe" and is not as family oriented as some of the larger hotels, plus great pool and amazing beach. The hotel is a bit isolated (in a good way) so you don't get a lot of foot traffic from nearby hotels.

I think rooms are around $300+, but you may be able to score a deal if staying for a week, or you may be able to get a shareable suite.
