The Sands at Grace Bay is a wonderful place to spend time with the family. Ranging from junior suites to two bedrooms plus a den, these newly updated villas are at a fantastic price point for Turks. Please see my photos for updated villas. Villa updates are complete in about ½ of the buildings. The huge plus to these villas is the screened in lanai–no bugs to worry about!

The West Bay Club boasts oceanfront suites ranging from 1 bedroom to 4 bedrooms to accommodate large families or multigenerational travel. This property is a place for families looking to relax in luxury.

6. Rock House

Pool club at the Rock House resort on Turks and Caicos

This property is a part of Grace Bay Resorts.

Built into the rock, the Rock House is perfect for those looking to get away–honeymoon, baby moon, anniversary trip, girls trip or a just because trip! This property is truly unique and somewhat reminiscent of European properties built into cliffs. This resort is beautiful and is currently in the process of building more villas, although this would not interfere with your stay. I would not recommend the Rock House for families with young children, however, those with older teens (15+), may find this to be the most instagrammable location that I visited. The views are amazing and the seclusion may be just what you need!

Room at the Rock House on Turks and Caicos

Included in Your Stay at the Rock House:

  • 46 luxury suites ranging from studios to two-bedroom villas
  • Private pool with one and two-bedroom oceanfront villas
  • One infinity pool
  • Beach access
  • Soon to be beach club (where the pier is now)
  • One restaurant
  • Two gorgeous bars, one built into the rock, the Cave Bar

As the turquoise waves kiss the pristine shores of Turks & Caicos, I hope this comprehensive review has ignited your excitement for the journey ahead.

From family-friendly havens with endless activities to intimate escapes that promise pure romance, the islands offer a spectrum of choices for every traveler.

I would personally recommend each of these locations for your Turks and Caicos vacation, it just depends on the vibe you are hoping to achieve. Please reach out and let me know how I can help you plan your dream vacation to Turks and Caicos!
