Perfect Getaway

We enjoyed every second of our stay at the Royal West Indies. We stayed in an oceanview studio. It was clean and comfortable and had gorgeous views of the gardens and the ocean. We enjoyed happy hour every evening from 5-7, with all drinks half-priced. The bar would get pretty busy but we always found a place to sit. The beach was amazing! We were there in early August and it was never really busy. The maids did a wonderful job keeping our room clean and supplied with fresh towels. There were bikes, Hobie Cats, paddle boards, and kayaks that could be used for free in 30-minute increments. We loved reading by the "quiet pool." We will definitely go back!

There is very little negative to say about our trip. The value for the money allowed us to do more once there. The hotel staff was great, the whole island was one big welcome committee, everywhere we went people were so gracious. Even the other guest went out of their way to be nice. Not one bad thing happened during the entire visit.I will recommend this place and Apple vacations to everyone. We came for our 40 anniversary and were not disappointed.

The grounds and rooms of the hotel are beautiful. The resort is near the far end of Grace Bay, which meant things were quiet but we had a fair walk to get to other restaurants and shops. I'd recommend plenty of cash for taxis or just renting a car. The taxis charge per-person, so any group of more than two is definitely better off with a car rental. The casino is right next door, and the hotel offers $10 vouchers for $80-worth of drinks and chips at the casino. The service is very laid-back - they are happy to help, but not in a rush. The beach is lovely and the hotel provides beach gear for free.

The hotel was exactly what we had expected. Affordable clean and comfortable. The wifi worked great throughout the facility and the beach was outrageous. Check in and out was quick and overall we found the locals excellent. We never felt unsafe walking not having rented a car. Don't really feel one was necessary. Caicos Dream tours provided a great snorkeling trip

Hotel at Turks & Caicos
JOSEPH S.
Jan 19 2016
The hotel was great and very comfortable. Washer & dryers in rooms and they gave you one load of soap was a big bonus so we could pack much lighter. The food was very good and the hotel was in a perfect location with a great beach compared to the stretch of beach at Grace Bay. The only minor negative was the beach guys were somewhat hesitant to let the kayak and hobie cat out. You have to be very demanding to get them to get it in the water. Probably because most people use it and have no clue how to sail so I could understand their hesitation. Otherwise I would definitely stay there again. It in a perfect location.

We went to Turks & Caicos with high expectations of the Island but were not sure about the hotel. I can gladly say this hotel/resort was ABOVE our expectations! The staff was not only pleasant (Including Mr. Lopez who was very accommodating to all our needs) but the hotel was gorgeous. The pools were well maintained and the beach was breathtaking. I have already recommended 3 family and friends to the resort.

An excellent place for relaxing

Two things set Royal West Indies apart from the various resorts along the gorgeous Grace Bay beach: affordability and the beautiful grounds. There are no less than four pools on the grounds, one of which is a hot tub with jets. The hot tub and two small pools in the garden courtyard form a designated quiet swimming area for relaxation. The garden is lush and well-kept, with a variety of palm trees and tropical flowers. The additional, larger pool is for loud swimmers, such as kids, and surrounds the restaurant. All the pools are elegantly shaped, with waterfalls and bridges. The rooms and buildings are clean, comfortable, and well kept. Quite a bit of beach equipment is provided for free, though the demand for them is high and the rental desk often runs out. Tours and excursions are fun and reasonably priced. While the hotel restaurant is expensive, other local restaurants and the in-room kitchen provide ways to eat for less. Overall, Royal West Indies provides a luxury experience in T&C for a very reasonable price.

My family stayed at the Royal West Indes and we really really love the property, location and all it offers. The beach view is great and the pelican bar is a favorite. The beach and pools were great including a toddler section of the main pool in front of the bar. Will definitely return again.

Our family had a great time during the holiday week at RWI, a big part of making our stay a pleasant one is the friendly services by the RWI staff, starting from their booking agent Kim, who helped us tremendously even before we landed on the island--from upgrading our room to making sure the two units be close by. The front desk ladies, Shenneka and DeAndra, did their best to meet every need we had. We made a mistake to book it via Hotwire's hot fare, which turned out to be more expensive than going direct to the resort site. Just call Kim and she will take care of you!

The resort has recovered extremely well from the hurricanes. Everything is up and running well. Just some trees braced so they do not fall. Arrived December 20 for two weeks. Studio botanical was our room and it was just fine as usual. Had a great time and will be back in December. If you are coming think about using Majestic taxi for your transfers. Great service.

New Years Getaway

Stayed here with my boyfriend and another couple for New Years (apparently their busy season). Be prepared to spend >$100 for some type of all you can eat celebration on New Year’s Eve (this does not include the cost of drinks) and the food was fantastic, but just a heads up. Pros: - Room amenities - Accommodating/friendly staff We booked a two bedroom suite, which had one bedroom locked off and the other in the same room as the common area - including two lounge chairs and a couch, kitchen with kitchen table and breakfast bar, full sized refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker (with coffee and tea included) and dish ware. More than enough room for 2 couples to enjoy together or separate. Upon our planned departure, there was a HUGE snowstorm in NY. JetBlue inconsiderately jerked us around for HOURS on end until finally cancelling our flight after 12 hours of hourly updated delays. Upon inquiry with the staff - they let us keep our suitcases in our room and squat there until we knew what JetBlue was doing with our flight. We updated them every couple hours until about 4PM (mind you checkout is at 11AM) when we decided to book the room to assure we would have somewhere to stay. Finally after it being cancelled they continued to let us have the same room we were already in for 2 additional nights at the same rate. The staff was nothing but friendly and accommodating! Especially the manager. Cons: - Smokey room (please read below) - Location of AC vent Really my only complaint about the facility (which is not even much of the hotels fault) was the fact that we were staying in a 2 bedroom suite and one of the rooms reeked of cigarette smoke. The room we were in was a non-smoking room, but our suspicion was that someone must’ve been sitting on the deck chain smoking with the sliding glass door open. The other couple we traveled with stayed in there - and as long as the sliding glass door was open, you couldn’t smell the smoke. Aside from that the only other inconvenience was that in our room, the AC vent blows directly onto the bed. So whoever is sleeping on the side of the bed closest to the wall - prepare to sleep in a sweatshirt and experience hurricane type winds periodically throughout the night.
