It is cold out there but I am still dreaming of blue water, sleeping in, sunshine, white sandy beaches and drinks by the pool. Our trip to Beaches Turks & Caicos for the Social Media on the Sand Conference was beyond amazing. It was an experience that will forever be an amazing memory with my husband. We had fun, we laughed, we slept, we ate, we drank, we acted like we were in college again and we connected. It was perfect. So here I am telling you that you must also experience this with your loved ones.
Why Stay At Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa?
Sure, we have all heard this before and honestly, I never really knew what it meant but seriously it means ALL inclusive. One part about this way of vacationing that I absolutely loved was that you paid all of your travel fees and room payments ahead of time. That scary bill at the end of your trip was nowhere to be found. I never felt like I should say no to anything while on the resort. Would you like dessert? Would you like to go snorkeling? Would you like another drink? YES, YES, and YES! A freedom of fun that I have not experienced on any other trip.
You Deserve This Experience:
Yes you do. We all do. I felt so relaxed and connected with Jeremy on this trip. I know that many couples came with their children and while we decided no too I could totally see how even with the kids in tow we would have found that connection and made some amazing memories. It is truly hard to explain but with the amazing scenery, fantastic staff, great accommodations, delicious food and drinks and fun entertainment there was never a time during our stay that we felt stressed. You need to make this memory and while our photos are beautiful they do not do Turks and justice. It is something you must see in person - you deserve it!
Well I have written a whole post about the food because WOW! With a choice of 20 international restaurants, the hardest decision will be which to try next. I will be honest, we went to dinner and then walk to another place for an extra dessert almost every night! SO GOOD! WE didn't try all of the restaurants but we certainly never felt hungry while on the trip! Ha! Read my Food, Food, and More Food post to get an idea of the menus and deliciousness we experienced.
We were living it up for those few days and that meant we were not only trying a ton of food but we were enjoying some fruity frozen drinks in the pool and on the beach and some fantastic wines while dining. I will have to say that our favorite fruity frozen drink was the Dirty Banana - extra filthy! HA!! It was fun to order and so yummy! A must try if you visit. Like I have discussed before, the drinks and food are included. This gives you the opportunity to let loose. Now if you need a kiddo friendly drink, they can also partake in the fun of the swim up bars. Those bartenders are amazing with the kids too. Plus who doesn't love smoothies at the pool too!?
While I did not experience the Red Lane Spa while on the resort I heard only amazing things about it. In fact, if we are blessed to visit Turks again I will be booking a relaxing facial and massage. The reviews are fantastic and from what I can tell the spa is beautiful and the perfect place to step into a total quiet and relaxation state.
Connections With Family and Friends:
On our trip because we went with two other couples that decided to leave their kiddos with the Grandparents too we were able to really have a great time and connect with them. I saw so many couples, friends and families really enjoying one another. So much laughing, playing and exploring. I feel like a resort like this allows you to really have time to enjoy each other and connect on a different level. Friendships were built and made even stronger while enjoying the waves. I will hold those memories with Heather, Kyle, Molly, Naaman and Jeremy forever. Maybe one day we will all decide to make a family trip and have the kiddos connect too....
"Daycare" on site:
For those of you that feel like the kiddos must come along you will be so pleased with the amount of kid friendly activities, day camps and adventures at Beaches. There are supervised kids programs that come with the all inclusive experiences. It was so fun to see the staff of Beaches interacting with the kids on the beach, at the day camp and at the pools. Those kids were having so much fun. There are even options for babysitting while the adults go out for dinner and drinks or late night swims. Those sitters do cost you a few bucks but from what I heard from others it was well worth it and the kids loved it. Something to look into if you are traveling with kids.
Something for everyone:
So you may not be the beach type but guess what? There is literally something for everyone. Games, activities, relaxing cabanas at the pool that are perfect for reading, a water park, tons of beautiful pools and so much more. You will never find yourself bored while visiting Beaches. I have already thought about how this type of resort would be great for multi-generational family vacations.
I have talked about it a lot. The memories. I think back to our 5 days in paradise and literally have a smile on my face instantly. The experience is hard to explain and it truly is something that everyone deserves to experience. Jeremy and I often talk about how fun it was get out and enjoy the beauty of the ocean and reconnect and refresh. Memories that have turned into inside jokes - SHARK HUNTING - memories that make me wish I was back in that beautiful suite getting a full nights sleep! HA! Oh parenthood!
The staff at Beaches wants you to do nothing but have a great time. I was amazed at some of the things the staff helped us with. Each and every staff member we came in contact with was kind and helpful. There is something great about that - true customer service.
Blue water that you can see through! All of the fish around us while we were in the ocean was a little creepy but wow, the colors and beauty was so worth it. The Caribbean blue water is nothing like the beaches here in the states. I always said I wanted to swim in blue water and now I have but now I am SO ready to go back!
Those are my reasons Why Stay At Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa and the reasons I cannot wait for the opportunity to visit again one day.
