Hi Karol,

 

The pictures of day 1 are absolutely beautiful. Was it really pricey to go to Turks and Caicos?

 

I'm back to stage 1 since I am no longer going to Mexico.

 

Thanks

Soon to be gomez Turks is more expensive than say jamaica but its not as expensive as some other islands I personally have looked at. It really depends on what you want.

Taxchick, T&C is fairly expensive but, I think, worth it for what you're getting. It's private and remote (yet reachable with direct flights from NY, Miami, Philly) in a way a lot of other islands are not.

I just got back yesterday from Beaches Turks & Caicos- what an amazing property! It has 3 villages that all offer a different ambiance but provides a vacation for whatever your in the mood for!

 

The French Village was very quiet and set back, the rooms were really large and very nice! I didn't have any complaints about mine at all!

 

The Caribbean village had brighter colors, lots of flowers & foliage,was closest to the beach and the rooms that I saw were great! Not sure about the lower categroy rooms though as we didn't see those.

 

The new Italien village was the busiest area- a bit more high rise than the others but very upscale & elegant! Amazing rooms!

 

You have access to the entire property so the choices are endless! Definately try the Cafe de Paris- great cookies, crepes & chilled mocha cappecinos!

 

There are a ton of restaurants (16) with amazing food and snack shacks throughout the property and the beach is wonderful!

 

I loved that it was all inclusive and offered something for everyone! From the little kids to teenagers to the older couples who went without any kids! I would even recommend this for honeymooners as there are adult only restaurants & hot tub but honestly the kids we saw were so well behaved and busy that it wasn't an issue!

 

The airport- welllll.......definately needs some upgrades and be sure to use the restroom on the plane as there isn't one until after you leave customs and then you have to go outside and walk in at the departure area!

 

Hopefully by the end of next week I'll have my pics & a full report up in the Sandals section!

Congrats! This hotel looks gorgeous! It's actually one of the top 2 we are considering for our honeymoon (it just got added to the potential list 2 days ago). Your pictures definitely helped! Thanks!

Thank you, Heather! I really recommend you honeymoon there. I wish we had stayed there after the wedding (we switched to Parrot Cay which I'll be blogging about soon). Gansevoort was just so amazing.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
