I just wanted to take a moment to thank you (Darik and Tendra) SO very much for the incredible stay at Villa Del Mar. Everything was absolutely PERFECT!

Your resort exceeded all of our expectations and we could not be more appreciative.

First and foremost, the room was AMAZING! Loved the size, loved the very contemporary feel (especially love the bathroom), loved the views, loved the deck, and loved the location!!!

I like the small feel of the facility. Makes all of the service and amenities feel more personal.

You really have access to one of the nicest beaches I have ever seen (and we have seen a lot!) Your location is phenomenal- walking distance to countless restaurants and a Casino. Favorites were Coco Bistro, The Vix, Mango Reef- Royal Westin (Thanks Darik- I think you are absolutely correct!) Also loved the vibe at the Gansevoort Hotel too.

As a returning customer, it was nice to see that your already great resort has gotten even better. The grounds (pools, hot- tub, landscaping, outdoor bar and grilles) were terrific.

Most importantly, the service and staff were phenomenal! This was an instant and complete improvement over our last stay.

I will start at the top and say that the two of you (Darik and Tendra) made us feel completely welcomed and valued (wonderful feeling) from the moment we arrived until the moment we said goodbye.

Starting at check in (I think your staff member's name was Faye?) we were immediately escorted to our magnificent room (everything felt so easy.)

Really liked Rachel (again I hope I got the name right) and Rashon (both were great with recommendations and follow up.) Also LOVED your bartender! I had read great things about her on Trip Advisor (she is terrific!)

Services were fantastic (loved the cleaning team.) I also really appreciate the heads- up about stopping the continental breakfast. Good decision and securing breakfast is quite easy outside the hotel- lots of good choices.

We hated leaving- and have vowed to return! We are in love with TCI and really were completely thrilled with Villa Del Mar. Cannot wait to return! Thanks so very much again for making our stay so memorable!!

All the Best- and see you soon (hopefully...)

We were there the first week in feb. i cannot wait to go back. Evereyone was nice Kendra and the whole front desk was great. The beach was beautiful and so was the service. It is a nice place to relax. I am jealous of anyone that is there now. The next trip will be for two weeks. see you Denise from mass.

The wife and I just got back from TCI, and the stay at Villa del Mar was great ! The 1-BR/den we stayed in was full of very high quality furniture, full kitchen with all the works. Silverware, glassware, appliances were all first-rate.

Front desk personnel were very cordial. Very accommodating. Bring your ethernet cable, WIFI is spotty at best.

The suite was very roomy, much more than we needed, the bedding was the best. The towels in the bathroom, well, it felt like you were holding two of them when you only had one !

The pools, the property were exceptional. While there wasn't an ocean view, the walk over to the beach was just a minute. When we got there, there was always an attendant there to greet you, provide towels, water, a lounger, and an umbrella, just for you ! If you want food/drink, they will get it for you from Grace Bay Club. Just ask !

As for the location as a vacation destination, it was much nicer than Maui. Very warm, great beaches, great restaurants. Nothing is free, most restaurants were very pricey. There are no 'chains' in TCI, so it's tough to find a cheap meal. But the local grocery was filled with great fruits/veggies/food in general, if you want to cook in instead of going out.

However, there is much larger a 'third world' element to the island as a whole. The developed resort areas are just that, world class, but the countryside was a bit rough. That being said, you won't regret going to TCI. Stick to the resort areas.....

Just back from Turks and Caicos and it’s more beautiful than we imagined. The beach is simply unbelievable and the water almost looks fake...it’s such a shocking blue/green color.

We were pleasantly surprised at how relatively uncrowded TCI is. Not wall to wall hotels like other islands we’ve been to, very little traffic (we didn’t see a traffic light on the whole island), and we didn’t have to make a reservation at any of the restaurants we ate at. And this is high season in the Caribbean.

First out hotel: Villa del Mar. Nice little resort right behind a nicer (and much more expensive) resort, Grace Bay Club (which was way out of our budget). But we didn’t feel like we gave up a lot with Villa del Mar. Our 1 bedroom suite was really big and comfortable. Plenty of room to spread out and we enjoyed having a full kitchen right in our room. The room and property were super clean and everything seemed new. Tip of the hat to the staff that made us feel very welcome and gave us some good advice on things to see and do. Nice pool, hot tub, bar on property…what else could we ask for?

We rented a car for a few days from Grace Bay Auto Rentals. They seemed to have the best prices and their location is close to Villa del Mar right in the heart of Grace Bay. A car is a good idea but not a necessity if you stay in Grace Bay and want to mainly focus on the beach. We explored the northwest part of the island one day. There’s a cool beach in that area called Malcomb’s Beach, but the road is a little rough to get there. We liked driving through the Bills Hill area to get there, though, and stopped a t a couple of local joints (Three Queen’s was our favorite but also liked Froggie’s).

Our favorite restaurants were Opus (in the Ocean Club resort by the golf course. Nice ambiance, great food and the bar was a cool place to hang after dinner for a glass of wine), Coco Bistro (you can walk from Villa Del Mar. its outdoor dining in a palm tree grove which is a really neat effect. Food was great but a bit pricey), and Hemingway’s (located at The Sands resort. Right on the beach, casual and relatively inexpensive places with great service and excellent meals for around $20-25, which is good for this island). We also discovered a place called Vine Tiempo which is in a little shopping plaza area not far from Villa del Mar. Cool little wine bar with small plates menu of some really interesting dishes. The nice thing about Villa del Mar is you are right in the middle of it all, but you don’t feel like you are in a busy area at all.

Our days were spent mostly on the beach. Villa del Mar has a beach area just for their guests and there’s an attendant there with loungers, towels, cold water, etc. We did a parasail trip one, day – a great way to see the island from about 300 feet in the air. The beach is just fantastic – really soft, white sand and you can walks for miles in either direction. No beach vendors or other distractions -- just pure unadulterated relaxation and tropical enjoyment.

An excellent experience for our first time to the Turks and Caicos. I highly recommend Villa del Mar – great value and location and very nice accommodations.

My family and I stayed at Villa del Mar last July. The place was fantastic. I just went down again - this time with friends and even though I didn't think it was possible - they have made some fabulous improvements and the place was better than ever! They now have beach attendants that provide cold water, towels and set up your beach loungers and umbrellas for you. You don't have to look at the Grace Bay Club guests and how they were treated and think that you're the poor stepsister anymore!! They will take your drink orders as well and run back to the Tiki Bar for you and deliver your drinks right to your lounger.

The Tiki Bar by the pool was open the WHOLE TIME we were there. Last year it was open some days, and closed early evening. The resort hosted a Friday night cocktail hour by the pool and drinks were on the house.

There seemed to be much more care given to the grounds this time. Workers were spotted everywhere cleaning, trimming landscape, etc. Last year I noticed lights burned out, towels by the pool would run out by the afternoon, etc. Everything was in perfect working order. Everyone seemed much friendlier this year too. Last year they were OK but nothing special.

Kudos to the staff at Villa del Mar for taking a great resort and continually making improvements to make the place even better.
