Loved this place right across the street from Grace Bay. The night desk staff was awesome and accommodating. It was super clean and was cleaned beautifully every day. There were flowers and towel animals. So nice as a greeting. Loved the pool. Our first morning, we did not realize that breakfast ended at 9:30 and once again it was no problem to stay open a few minutes more for us. Just read the other reviews and they are very accurate.

Room Tip: We were close to reception. I would have liked to have been up a floor or two higher

This was a surprise for my wifes birthday and we could not have been any more pleased.

We've travelled in the past to many Caribbean locations including Aruba, St Maarten, Jamaica and Antigua but this would now be our number #1 spot.
The Villa del Mar was extremely clean and the staff very pleasant. The continental breakfast is your typical cereal, toast, pastries, orange juice and coffee. Adequate enough to hold you to lunch and get you to the beach early, because that's where you want to be.

Grace Bay, Providenciales has the best beach we have every seen. The powdery sand is clean of any debris and you can walk and walk until you can't go any further. The water has no stones, pebbles or seaweed and the bright turquoise Carribean sea was calm all the time we were there. There is no issue getting a lounge chair with umbrella and towels are provided at the beach.

There is no restaurant at VDM but there is lots within walking distance. Be sure to make reservations in advance and go to the Coco Bistro (closed Mondays) for a unique dining experience outside under the palm trees. Expensive but GREAT FOOD!!

In the deluxe suite there is a fridge and microwave as well as a few barbecues available on the grounds. The larger one bedroom units have a stove. There is a grocery store within easy walking distance with a great deli counter, fresh fruit & vegatables, wine, beer and alcohol.
The rooms are nicely furnished, king size bed extremely comfortable, the AC worked great and can be adjusted by remote. This would be rated a 5 star if it had a restaurant and entertainment.

The VDM is not a beachfront complex but the walk to the beach is less than we have had at actual beachfront locations. The pool is not large but neither is the complex. At times we were the only ones in or around the pool. The temperature of the pool is very warm and the lounges extremely comfortable.

We can't wait for our next trip to Villa del Mar and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

We stayed at Villa del Mar in November for our honeymoon. The location is great. We rented bicycles for a few days but mostly walked to the places we wanted to go. The continental breakfast was adequate. The pool and hot tub were pleasant. The umbrellas and chairs on the beach are good. The kitchen in our 1-bdr with den was well-equipped and the room was very clean with modern furniture and an amazingly comfy bed. The staff was very nice - informative, if you asked a question, but not intrusive. We had a nice time talking to Alan, the manager, during the weekly rum punch cocktail reception. They have plans for an expansion and adding a restaurant but right now its a perfectly-situated, sleepy (in a good way), condo-tel. An important note for us, we had a good, consistent wireless Internet connection. If we return to Turks and Caicos, we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Having a full kitchen in the 1bdr with den was great. We went to the nearby grocery store (Graceway...

Just spent 7 nights at the Villa del Mar - this place is simply awesome! It's not right on the beach but it's only about a 2-minute walk to the beach. The gardeners keep the grounds in excellent condition and the pool is child-friendly. Rooms are well furnished with good quality furniture and kitchenware – the beds are so comfy!!
The staff were friendly and very helpful! The housekeeping staff did an awesome job of cleaning our rooms everyday – we were a large family with children! There are two good quality barbecues that you could use, located in the pool area near the bar. The Graceway Gourmet supermarket is about a 15-minute walk and you feel totally safe walking outside the resort. They are well stocked, but on the pricey side. The Caicos Bakery, run by a friendly and polite lady, has some wonderful pastries, quiche, éclairs, breads etc. and is located about a 10-min walk from VDM. They sell out pretty fast, so try and get there early. VDM serves some of these pastries for breakfast – loved the chocolate croissants! There is no restaurant at VDM, but lots of good restaurants within walking distance.
Service on the beach was impeccable! The friendly twins Lerone and Kerone are just superb! They set us up with beach towels, loungers and cold water and even brought out beach toys for our children. Also, they will even bring you a drink or meal from the nearby café. They have sufficient lounge chairs – so you don’t have to scramble every morning to reserve one.
We rented a van for a day from Grace Bay Rentals and visited Taylor Bay - great for the kids! Some streets have no street signs, this can be a challenge but you eventually find your way – it is a small island!
VDM, we will be back!!

A great place for families! The rooms were beautiful, comparable to some 5 star resorts I've stayed at in the past. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The location was the best part. Depending on which direction you went a quick walk would get you to the beach, tiki bar, swimming pool, grocery store, bakery, restaurants etc.
I usually never go back to the same place twice because I like to explore new places but this is one place I wouldn't mind coming back to again and again.
