Room Categories at Beaches Turks & Caicos
Posted 04 June 2010 - 03:54 PM
I'm not necessarily looking to have a concierge room - a big part of the reason we booked a concierge room was simply that all the wedding officiant fees were covered with that level room. And the TA I booked with gave us a $250 spa credit as well so the extra cost of the concierge room balanced out in the end.
So I'm looking to hear from any T&C brides (or TA's) and what category room you booked and if you liked it or would change anything if you had to do it again. Did you have a concierge room? Was it worth it? (I don't think I'd care other than you get VIP check in). If you look at Trip Advisor (which I try to take with a grain of salt) most people seem to prefer the French or Italian Village over the Caribbean. However the Caribbean is less expensive and seems to be closer to the beach (and I would like an ocean or beachfront view if possible).
Thanks in advance for any/all opinions!!

The concierge service was okay, we did a concierge snorkling trip and a concierge cruise. I was indifferent on the snorkling trip- you can sign up for one of those yourself at the snorkling shop. The cruise was really nice, they take you out around the bay for about an hour. You get drinks and snacks. Definitely glad we signed up for that.
My advice on the part of the village you stay in- who cares? You aren't in your room very often and the resort is small enough that you can walk from one part of the resort to the other in 10 minutes. Go with the cheaper one!

Any other T&C brides (ahem...I know you're out there somewhere Meagan, lol) out there with opinions on either the room you booked or even the rooms your guests booked?

We choose Beaches T&C because this is my second wedding and I have an 11 year old daughter. We were originally just going to have a small intimate wedding here in NC, but honestly, the cost of having a wedding for only 20-25 people was soooo expensive. So, we decided on a destination wedding.
Good luck with your planninng. Let us know what you decide.

I just looked at the Beaches site and it says the Luxury Honeymoom Suite has a view of the resort grounds...is this the room you booked or am I looking at it wrong? I def would like an ocean view if possible. It looks like the Govenors's 1 bedroom suite or Govenor's Honeymoon suite are the 2 lowest categories with any ocean view?

Congrats on the upgrade as well! I'd love to be able to book (and pay) for a lower category room and then be upgraded...but since there's no guarantees that's kind of risky for me.

Most of our guests booked the Turquoise Deluxe Room and the French Village Luxury Room, both are the lowest categories possible. The French Village rooms i found were nicer only because they were newer, however it was really far from the beach. The French Village rooms were cheaper than the Turquoise Deluxe Room. We had two couples who ended up wanting to switch to the Caribbean Village but all the rooms were sold out.
For us, being close to the beach was very important!
