You will truly enjoy your stay at this second floor, one-bedroom suite at beautiful Royal West Indies Resort. View the ocean and the colorful resort landscaping. This unit is 1,004 square feet with a 297 square foot wraparound covered balcony. There are two 12-foot wide floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors -- most RWI condos only have a single sliding glass door. We are now taking credit card payments.
Royal West Indies is right on the beach. Compare the rates with the resort rates and other resorts actually on Grace Bay. Grace Bay beach is consistently ranked among the top ten beaches in the world.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and there are louvered shutters on both windows. There is a queen-size sofa sleeper. There are separate bedroom, dining, living, kitchen, and bath areas. Walk 300 feet to the beach. Beach towels, Beach Chairs, Umbrellas, Hobe Cats, Ocean Kayaks, snorkel gear, and all other recreation equipment are included. There are two TVs (a new flat panel HD TV in the living room), and free strong-signal WiFi Internet -- bring your laptop. A new Carrier air conditioner replaced the original air conditioner in March of 2013.
There are two Resort pools. There is a large rectangular pool and a free-form pool with a spa and waterfall.
This second floor, wind-protected, suite has lower rates than identical oceanfront suites. It is also twice as large as studio suites (without kitchens), that are also offered at Royal West Indies. Outer and inner doors are equipped with dead-bolt locks.
Our agent will meet you at the Resort (you can rent a car or take a taxi from the airport), show you the suite, give you the keys, and will provide emergency assistance.

Why Owner chose Grace Bay
We have traveled the Caribbean extensively, and, in our view, Grace Bay Beach on Provo in the Turks & Caicos Islands is overall the best place to vacation. And, tropically landscaped Royal West Indies Resort is the perfect niche resort, with large attractively appointed one-bedroom suites.

shabby unit needing attention in lovely location
As one who rents my own place through VRBO, I am inclined to generosity but it is hard to do here. Our first experience was not being able to reach the property manager. While she had been told our date of arrival & I had emailed her, she left her phone at home, so my 4 calls to her & owner went unanswered. Subsequently she told us she did not want to go back for it during the rain until she realized at check in time we might be trying to reach her. We finally caught up with her after the check-in time at the local restaurant where she was eating her lunch. i felt badly rushing her but we had been waiting to reach her for several hours which had ruined our planned day.
Royal West Indies is a nice resort with excellent amenities including two pools & a lovely beach. The restaurant has good food. This unit is not managed by the resort, so the daily maid service that is provided to other units is not included. We did find salt, pepper, detergent, tissue & paper towel as in other units, as well as a collection of sunscreens left behind by prior guests. For those looking to be ecologically sound while snorkeling or swimming, none were reef-safe.
This second floor unit is on the western edge of the property which made it quiet. The view is over the restaurant/bar & includes a glimpse of Grace Bay beyond. This one bedroom unit was equipped with a stove, frig, microwave & dishwasher, washer/dryer. We expected to be able to cook at least one dinner as well as breakfasts & to make an occasional lunch. While a full kitchen, the one & only pot provided made it difficult to cook. Requests to the owner for a pan went ignored, other than to tell me to look where multiple pots & pans should have been. The coffee mugs were more suitable for demitasse-size consumption.
We found a candy wrapper in one chair, but it was otherwise reasonably clean.
The switched lights in the bedroom & over the stove were not functional. I suspect lightbulbs needing replacement but by then had given up on getting a response from either the property manager or the owner.
The furniture is old & shabby with out of date mattresses that made sleeping somewhat challenging. Sheets were OK. Clearly wear & tear have taken place over time & not been dealt with. I base this on comparison to the other unit to which we subsequently moved, where the bed & furniture are in much better shape.
While we love TCI & its many islands, we would not return to this unit nor recommend it at this price.
Lovely Property and Location
Enjoyed our stay at RWI for 10 nights. Unit was clean, well equipped and we had everything needed for our stay. Close to restaurants, grocery store and center of town. Unit location was quiet and short walk to pool and beautiful beach. Great value overall!
Unité dans un complexe très propre avec sports sur la plage. Nécessite une auto. chambre fermée et grande terrasse
Frank has a wonderful condo in a beautiful resort situated on my favorite part of Grace Bay. You are close to many great restaurants. This was our second stay in this unit and we look forward to returning. Absolutely the best value in this resort!
A Piece of Paradise
From the moment we walked into this beautiful condo we knew we had chosen the right place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We wanted somewhere special and had spent a lot of time researching various resorts before selecting this one. We were enchanted with the views from the wrap-around balcony. The resort grounds were magnificent and beautifully maintained.
The condo itself is very spacious and attractively furnished . Everything was provided to make our stay special. We only went out for dinner twice as we enjoyed sitting on the beautiful, white-sand beach until quite late, then having drinks on the balcony before preparing dinner. At night, the lights around the gardens and pools are very pretty. We enjoyed going down into the gardens and relaxing in the hot tub or pool.
The staff was very helpful and everyone was friendly and courteous, speaking to us when we passed on our way to the beach. We used the bikes provided by the resort to peddle the short distance to the local grocery, and the staff helped us to get started since it had been awhile since we had been on bikes. We could also walk along the beach to the stores.
The restaurant at the resort was very good. We did not feel the need to rent a car with everything being within walking distance. The condo is just a short walk to the beach. There were always plenty of chairs, umbrellas, and towels. There were numerous water activities available, but we preferred to just sit on the beach and relax. It is a quiet, laid-back resort, perfect for a getaway.
The condo owner was very helpful and had corresponded with us several times prior to the trip, answering all our questions.
We found a week not long enough. We hope to return some time and stay longer.
Would definitely rate both condo and resort this 5 stars!
We stayed 5 days at the condo and had a wonderful experience. The condo was clean and well kept and right next to both pools and the restaurant. The kids really enjoyed wandering between pools and visiting with their newfound friends and quickly made it their home. We found the grounds quiet and relaxing and the quiet pool was a great way to keep our own kids quiet. The beach is a short walk and Royal West Indies has plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. Grace Bay is one of the best beaches we have ever seen and we have been to Hawaii, Jamaica and Mexico to name a few. The water is crystal clear and has such beautiful shades of blue. The white sand beach made for several unforgettable walks. We booked the Caicos Dream Tour and they picked us up at the lobby and dropped us off right off at the beach for incredible convenience. The staff was very friendly. We rarely would like to visit the same place twice, but this place could be the exception. We feel that Grace Bay is one of the best destinations for a beach vacation.
Relaxation, Walk on Beautiful Grace Bay Beach, Swim in the Ocean and in the two large Resort Pools, Drive or walk to the new gourmet Graceway IGA to stock your kitchen for your visit, Local Restaurants are excellent - Try Conch Fingers
