Although the place is very remote, it is a lovely place with very nice staff. Be prepared to drive to the end of the island (the end is all dirt road) but when you get there it is private and beautiful. If you want peace and quiet this is the place. No food available so stop at the grocery store and can eat out all you want, 20 minute ride to most places. Most of the time we had the beach to ourselves during our November visit. We had a visit from an osprey and a stork, quite nice!

Room Tip: We had the pool side room reserved but paid extra to be on the beach, it is worth it!

I'd give the resort a 3.5 out of 5, but can't quite give it a 4. Northwest Point Resort is an excellent value and lives up to its advertisement. If you want to get away from the crowds and have a secluded beach to yourself, this is the place. Its about 15 to 20 minutes from the airport and the IGA grocery; the last 5 minutes or so on a broad and reasonably smooth dirt road. I got the complimentary car rental through Tropical Car; they meet you at the airport to finalize the paperwork and this proved to be a very smooth transaction and really simplified the arrival.

The rooms are very spacious and we had a full kitchen that was generously equipped with plates, utensils, pots, pans, and just about any other items for a beach stay. We stocked up at the IGA Graceway Supermarket and were able to prepare most of our meals in the room. Eating on the balcony in the refreshing sea breeze was delightful. We also found a fish ID chart, shell guide, and bird book in our room for our use; also there were board games, cards, a nice TV with DVD player, etc. Near the front office you can borrow snorkel gear, beach toys, and books. Kayaks await on the beach to be used. The place is quiet and restful.

There are miles of empty beach for exploration. You can hike west to the actual Northwest Point of the island where we found an osprey nest and a very photogenic osprey who seems to love to pose for pictures. Also spotted pelicans, night herons, sanderlings, turnstones,egrets, and other birds. Offshore there are numerous coral heads with both hard and soft corals including some impressive sea fans and sea whips. Fish and lobsters hide in the nooks. The beach is littered with conch shells. Unfortunately the beach is also littered with plastic litter washed ashore by the prevailing tide; this is a sad phenomena I find on too many beaches.

While there were no significant maintenance or housekeeping issues, this is the area where the resort loss the 0.5 point rating. The resorts prices are quite competitive but the price does NOT include daily housekeeping. And while upon our arrival the room was reasonably clean - especially in the all the critical areas - the place was not spotless. And I think they could just get ride of the area rugs altogether. You can request additional housekeeping to clean the room at an (unspecified) nominal fee, but we didn't during our five night stay and by the end of the week the place needed some housekeeping. Also as with any seaside resort maintenance is a continuous challenge. We had no major maintenance issues but there were minor items needing work - a broken sliding door latch, a courtyard fountain shut down for repair, screens at the restaurant torn loss. The staff seems to be working on keeping things up and hopefully they keep pace.

All in all, we had a relaxing stay, and fun snorkeling and exploring the beach.

Second time we stayed here. Remote away from the crowd. There were 4 people at resort when we were there. We had the 6 miles of beaches to ourselves! Now that's how you get away!

It's a bit of a drive to get up here, but the car that was included in our hotel rate made it easy to access. Also, we only paid $150/night, which is a great deal for the Turks. Everything else was so expensive, we didn't mind the drive and the remote location. It's quiet up there, but it's nice to walk on the uncrowded beach. I'd recommend it for a stay in the Turks.

We booked a room for four nights through a travel agency. Within an hour of arrival we told them we had decided not to stay past the first night. The resort informed us that they had a two week cancellation policy and refused any change in our reservation.

The beach is much better at Grace Bay. This resort is very remote and inconvenient. We spent a lot of time driving down a dirt road.

Sheldon R, Manager at Northwest Point Resort, responded to this reviewResponded 16 October 2013

Northwest Point is now under new management with a new cancelation policy, Northwest point is designed for those that like the idea of a restful vacation, our 16 miles of white sand beach, spectacular views, and spacious condos are perfect for those wanting to get away from it all. The drive is worth it we have been told by thousands of visitors. For those that seek adventure and a little isolation it's perfect. We are not a huge resort with hundreds of tourists walking around we are a small boutique resort located on the far end of the island perfect for couples or families that would like to reunite and enjoy unobstructed views of the sunsets and sunrises. Please come and stay with us if you desire to do so.
