    So my coworker was supposed to leave Sunday for beaches in Turks and Caicos and the resort is closed indefinitely due to norovirus. No info on their website. She only heard about it from a friend who was there last week. They ended up being closed to try and get rid of this virus. I am only posting this to advise brides scheduled for their weddings because the resort is keeping it quite! I can't even Imagine what I would do! My heart goes out to all the brides grooms and their guests!

      Please get your details straight before making random statements.  "Closed indefinitely?"  No, they re-opened on June 13th.  They also communicated with all of the travel agents concerning the norovirus.  I cannot imagine booking a place like Beaches Turks & Caicos without using a travel agent, so your friends should have been notified - they didn't find out by accident unless they booked on some online booking site thinking they were getting some kind of deal.  Let that be a lesson - USE A TRAVEL AGENT!  You don't pay more - and may even pay less!  Pam @ JP Travel

        Please get your facts straight before posting invalid information.  The property re-opened on June 13th.  Beaches is not trying to keep anything a secret.  All travel agents were notified about the situation.  Did your co-worker book their honeymoon using an internet booking system thinking they were getting a 'deal'?  Let that be a lesson.  USE A TRAVEL AGENT!  You don't pay anything extra - in fact, you may get a better deal, plus you'd have someone to call with questions, and have someone to notify you if there was a problem.  Pam

          I do have my facts straight! My coworker booked her family vacation thru Beaches directly! I felt horrible for her and her family as well as the brides who were affected. She contacted them having heard from someone who just returned that they just closed the resort. She was not notified and asked when she would have been. The Beaches rep she spoke with told her they were notifying guests as there reservations came up! Unacceptable. She was reassured the resort was reopening before her trip and in fact it did not. They scrambled and were able to book a vacation somewhere else! In fact she returned yesterday! Yes the resort did reopen and things do happen but there was very limited information and nothing on their website. I merely posted this to give people a heads up. I really don't appreciate your hostile response. If I was a bride with my wedding coming up I would have liked the heads up.

            Thanks for posting it for others to check out. People can do their own research to find out what is going on thanks to your post. Glad to hear the resort has opened back up though--how stressful! Pam I really think she was merely trying to help out other brides who may be going there not to stir up anything.

             

            Everyone keep calm and marry on :)


            Even a trillion hearts are still too few to hold all the love I have for you<3
