Turks & Caicos _Transportation between resorts?

Recommended Posts

My guests would like to stay at Beaches Turks & Caicos during the week of the wedding (due to the resortâ€s great family activities, new water park, etc). Weâ€re looking to split the vacation between Beaches and possible Grace Bay Club where weâ€re currently trying to book the ceremony and reception. Is there a reasonable distance between these two resorts? Also, are there any transportation companies that we can use to transfer our guests from and back to Beaches the day of the wedding? Any help is greatly appreciated!

It's definitely way too much of a distance to walk. You may want to check with GBC because they do have a complementary shuttle service for guests. With it being a lot of people, they may handle the extra arrangements for you. If you have to book a shuttle/taxi let the hotel recommend someone. They will use people they have found to be reliable. I can't tell you about the costs, our taxi drivers/shuttle drivers have a big hold on the industry which fixes rates on the high side. But if you are booking the wedding at GBC, see if you can negotiate in shuttle service as part of your package.

 

It doesn't hurt to ask!

That's a great idea Krys...I will try to negotiate in shuttle service. I hope it's not going to be a long ride between the two resorts. I already got back from Ileana and the date is available! I'm still waiting to hear from GBC regarding the children allowance at the dinner reception. I don't have much time to plan this event but it looks that once I have the place and photographer booked, which are priorities for us, then I can relax and take care of details:). Again thank you for the info!

it's not far, 5-10 minutes tops including getting in the van (seriously). Just not walking distance (probably 3-4 miles tops and we don't have traffic)....actually everything on island for the most part is under 15 minutes....LOL

Never been on the island so I have no idea how far things are from one another:)..The wedding coordinator at GBC got back to me and they would like to ofer us the lower palapa area at Anacaona restaurant....it looks really nice from the few picture that I've seen! Is this a popular restaurant spot for wedding receptions at GBC?

Iulia,

 

All of GBC is lovely, It's a really nice resort and all of their locations (even by the grill restaurant are great). They do quite a few weddings at GBC so they will take care of you! One advatange of GBC is that all of their reception areas really do have views of the beach/water etc.

 

Hope that helps....as for the distance on island. The island at it's maximum is only about 25 miles long and half of that is undeveloped. Traffic is non existent really, we have no stop lights etc. I get annoyed if it takes me more than 15 minutes to get somewhere....makes traveling back in the US and UK a test of patience LOL.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
