Once you've arrived in Turks and Caicos you'll need a place to stay, but don't worry. When it comes to accommodations, these islands have you covered. From posh villas and suites to bare bones units, you'll find something to fit your style.

Location

When it comes to the collection of islands that make up Turks and Caicos, vacationers will quickly discover that some islands are more populous than others. Still, guests will be able to find lodgings no matter where they choose to stay.

Providenciales

Accommodations Map

Providenciales, or Provo, draws the largest number of tourists of all the islands. There are multitudes of attractions to be seen, and no shortage of restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping venues. The majority of the island's accommodations can be found along the east coast, while rental properties are more abundant along the southern peninsula.

Grand Turk

Grand Turk is another popular destination among the islands. The activity here is centered around the city of Cockburn Town. Here, most of the accommodations can be found along the east and west coasts, particularly the west because of the sandy beaches.

Other Islands

The smaller islands of Turks and Caicos, like Salt CayNorth Caicos and Middle Caicos may not offer the city-vibe that Provo and Grand Turk have in abundance, but they do specialize in activities like snorkeling and hiking. The accommodations on the smaller islands range from small hotels to rental properties.

Quality

Before you choose your lodging, take a moment to consider one of the less pleasant vacation planning essentials: cost. Accommodations on the Turks and Caicos are not the cheapest in the Caribbean and can easily cost $100(USD) per night for a room without air conditioning and more than $200(USD) for a room in a nicer hotel.

Luckily, our Star Rating system, which measures the quality of each accommodation, rates hotels without concern for their cost. This means after you set your budget, you can look through the list and find options in each rating category.

One and Two Stars

Hotels in Turks and Caicos with 1 Star ratings are often privately owned and operated by one person or a family. These locales are nothing extravagant, with no extra amenities or fancy décor, but they do offer a nice place to sleep at night. If you don't plan to spend too much time in your room, this might be right up your alley. At this time, we have no 1 Star properties rates for Turks and Caicos.

The islands' 2 stars accommodations are slightly better, but still feature sparse décor and amenities. These hotels may be owned by a small regional chain, and might have a restaurant or bar on site. Room service is generally offered. Turks and Caicos' 2 Star properties include the Meridian Club, Hollywood Beach Suites, and Caribbean Paradise Island, and range in price from $100 to $300(USD).

Three Stars

When you want something right in the middle, not too fancy, but still above average, consider a 3 stars property. These hotels are comfortable and clean, with a friendly staff. You can expect room service, possibly 24 hours a day, and maybe a lounge bar, and a restaurant or two. Turks and Caicos' 3 Star Properties include West Bay Club and the Regent Grand, and range in price from $250 to $2000(USD).

Four Stars

No, they aren't the best of the best, but 4 stars resorts in Turks and Caicos come pretty close. These locales have quality furnishings, luxury amenities, a helpful staff, and a few extras like flat screen televisions. Turks and Caicos' 4 Star properties include Gansevoort, Wymara, and the Veranda, and range in price from $300 to $3000(USD).

Five Stars

For some people, a trip to a foreign country means its time to go big or go home. There is no other option than to pamper yourself with a stay at a 5 stars property. These rooms are comfortable, elegant, and meticulously decorated. There is no comparing the staff, and the extras include such luxuries as jacuzzi tubs and personal butler service. At this time, we have no 5 Star properties rates for Turks and Caicos.

When you check out, don't be surprised by the taxes assessed by the hotel. These may or may not be included in your original quoted price, so be sure to ask to avoid surprises. The government imposes a room tax (currently 7 to 9 percent), and a service charge of 10 to 15 percent is often added as well.
