As the name suggests, the Sands at Grace Bay Hotel is placed on the shore of the stunning 12-mile Grace Bay Beach, making this Providenciales 4 star beach hotel one of finest in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Laid back resort where relaxation is paramount. Staff is extremely friendly and gracious. Rooms are gorgeous, very nice facilities. Hemingway's is great, casual elegant, open air ocean front dining...the filet mignon is top notch ! The sand on the beach is like powder.
Remember that this is the Carribean and you are on vacation so relax as things do happen at island time pace.
bring books as there is not too much to do on the island other than swim, scuba, fish, golf, bicycle, sail, eat and tan.
awesome time had at the Sands...very family oriented....lots of young families but not packed together. No structured events for kids....its play with your own kids which is great !
just ask for a taxi to the Sands as they do not provide air transfers normally.
Very nice and welll appointed. The whole resort apparently just recently got updated. very nice.
Restaurants and Bars:
Hemingways is really good. most of the restaurants are pretty comparable in price and quality.
Avoid the pizza joint on the second floor above Mama's gift shop. they do not know good service.
Beach is absolutely exquisite...powdery white sand you can really dig into and make some great castles . Lots of space to throw a football or play paddle ball ( bring that with you ) there is a nice little service hut that offers kayaks, floaties, snorkel gear and windsurfer at no extra cost.
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Not too sure...there is a casino and a theater and some bars but we stay at the resort. no real cultural activities in the evenings
this is a place where you want to go if you want privacy, do not want to be talking to anyone if you do not want to. it is very relaxing and quiet. hot days , nice evenings always a nice breeze.
