Prime position on Grace Bay Beach
Customer service is not up to par at times
On the island of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands, The Sands at Grace Bay stands as a tropical haven flanked by 12 miles of Grace Bay's white sand. The Sands' 114 air-conditioned suites are decorated in beige and blue, and each contains a sitting area and a kitchenette. Plus, all accommodation rates cover perks like welcome drinks, in-suite Wi-Fi access and use of bicycles and nonmotorized water sports equipment like kayaks and snorkeling gear. Couples and families alike can bask along the wooden deck of The Sands' three free-form pools or go for a dip in the ocean. When salt, sun and sand have worn you out, unwind with a treatment at the spa or grab a bite to eat at Hemingway's, which serves casual international fare throughout the day. Guests rave about the restaurant's dishes. However, some say the resort's customer service is hit or miss.

Critic Reviews

Other Awards

  • Frommer's Very Highly Recommended


Sands at Grace Bay is an easy-going four-pearl resort located on stunning Grace Bay Beach. The property's 114 studios and suites are well-kept and modern, with all featuring either kitchens or kitchenettes as well as big living areas.


This ever-popular all-suites resort does a nifty job of juggling the needs of a sprawling 114-unit property while maintaining high standards throughout. (It doesn't hurt to have a gorgeous sweep of Grace Bay beach at the front door.)



Spacious gardens and winding pools set the tone for one of Provo's most popular family-friendly resorts. You can expect friendly and helpful staff and excellent amenities, including a spa, a good-size fitness room, water sports, tennis, and basketball, as well as on-site dining at this 6-acre, all-suite beachfront resort.
