Turks & Caicos hotels can be fairly expensive, from Provo's five-star luxury resorts to small and modest inns of the outer cays. Room rates tend to rise in the peak winter months, but some say you can still secure a good bargain if you plan ahead and stay in one of the larger resorts. More budget friendly rates are generally available in the less crowded summers.
The main tourist hub of Provo has welcomed a large number of new boutique resorts over the past few years. These hotels cater mainly to beachcombers seeking the area's alabaster sand; prices tend to be high and room availability tends to be low.
If you're seeking peace and quiet (and aren't afraid to pay for it), consider the luxury resorts on the outer islands of Pine Cay and Parrot Cay. These cays are especially popular with honeymooners.
Turks Islands' accommodations consist mainly of small, budget-friendly inns, although several luxury options like Salt Cay Resort & Golf Club are also available. Salt Cay hosts several low-rate hotels, including the quirky Pirate's Hideaway & Blackbeard's Quarters. Owner Candy Herwin (also a self-proclaimed pirate) has decorated her beloved guesthouse with her own art. And rumor has it she'll gladly cook for you if you're willing to entertain her with a song. More conventional travelers will find pretty good deals on the area's luxury resorts in summer.
