We stayed in the Grace Bay Area of T+C which is where most of the resorts are. The place we stayed at was called Villa del Mar and wasn't right on the beach, but was just a short walk across the street and through the Grace Bay Resort. We rented a one bedroom with a den. The den was its own separate room with a pull out bed which was perfect for setting up Cole's blow up bed. Kitchen and laundry were a must have for us too.
The location of Villa del Mar was very nice. It was a short drive to the grocery store and many restaurants. You really could walk if you wanted to. There were a lot of condos in the area, but with it being such a slow season, it was never crowded at the pool or at the beach.
Tony had read online about the nightmare that the Turks and Caicos airport can be in Saturdays...that lines were outside the airport, super slow, and not many places to sit. So we decided to pay for the "VIP" service and private lounge. Well, it wasn't really necessary because we didn't realize how slow the travel to the island would really be. We were the only ones in the lounge, but we took advantage of some snacks, drinks, and Wifi. I could see how it would get really backed up during the busy season though.
