Family Vacation Report by Lou Lint September 2009

Our travel agency is all about helping people creating great memories.  Well, when we recommend Beaches Resort in the Turks and Caicos we really deliver on our objective. 

As you approach the islands you look out the airplane window to see one of the most beautiful sights in the Caribbean.  White sand beaches, clear waters to turquoise waters leading to deeper blue waters.  The first time you see this view will blow your mind away.

Only 15 minutes from the airport and you are on the resort.  Once you arrive you will not want to leave, nor will you have any reason to want to leave.  Everything is provided right on your resort for the whole family. We were traveling with two families one of my husband and myself in our 60’s and our son’s family of his wife and their two younger children, one 4 and one 15 year old. 

The biggest hit with the four year old was the water park area for little ones and the pool just for his size people.  This pool is not hidden away from everything, it is part of the larger pool so the whole family can be together and enjoy the swim up bar, kiddie pool and floating around on a pool floaties or just relaxing by the pool.  They also have Sesame Street Characters who walk through the resort from time to time and the kids really like them.  There is a great young children’s program that includes the Sesame Characters.

The 15 year old was very happy with the water toys.  He learned how to sail a hobie cat, went snorkeling on the snorkeling boat, and used the kayaks and water bikes.  In the evening he could go to the teen only club or to the Xbox room or the sports room.  He also enjoyed along with his father the water surf rider and drifting on the lazy river as well as the water slide.  His father was also very happy that all of these things are included in the cost of their trip and he didn’t have to pay for anything as they used them.

We were all very pleased with the food and the service.  The service quality is very noticeable, especially with the working people that you see walking around the resort.  They never pass you without a smile and a friendly hello.  If you ask for something they do anything to help you even if it clearly is not part of their normal job.  With something like 15 dining options you can always find something that you will really love to eat.  For the children it was the Pizza served in two locations at the resort and it was really really good.  Our daughter in-law and I really liked the restaurants down by the beach that overlooked the ocean and had white glove service.

Like many things in life, you will pay more for this Beaches experience than some of your other vacations. However no matter where you stay on this resort you can use the full resort and all the restaurants, pools, toys and water park, sports area, xbox, all meals, food anytime, drinks of any kind.

When you check out of the resort you could really not have any additional costs.

Beaches does have special sales pricing from time to time.  Recently they have been running some 50% and 65% specials.  If you have any questions, call me or your favorite Breton Village Travel agent.
