This review is LONG overdue!
I stayed at Villa Del Mar in May 2011 and had a fabulous experience. I cannot believe the deal we got on this amazing hotel!
Turks and Caicos is an expensive island, but VDM is a true gem in Grace Bay. The hotel itself is located directly behind the Grace Bay Club and you walk through the resort to get to the beach, etc. The walk is super quick and, honestly, you would spend just as much time walking from a "garden view" room at the Seven Stars to the beach as you would walking from VDM to the beach. It's just as close, if not closer, than most rooms at the big resorts.
The rooms themselves are clean and updated with modern furnishings and balconies. We loved sitting out and having a cocktail at dusk on our balcony. All rooms also have fridges and microwaves if you want to grab snacks from the grocery store.
The service was mostly friendly and attentive. The pools are okay, though the larger resorts obviously have more impressive facilities.
If you want to experience Turks and Caicos on a moderate budget while still feeling pampered, I absolutely recommend Villa Del Mar. We had an amazing stay and would definitely return!More
