My wife and I stayed at the Royal West Indies resort the week after Thanksgiving. What a really nice place! The condo had a large kitchen, very comfortable living room, and a bedroom with access to the deck. We loved it. The grounds are just beautiful (like the Garden of Eden)- lush tropical foliage that surrounds the pools and the buildings. The walk to the beautiful white sand beach was a short one. There were plenty of beach chairs and the shaded ones were mostly avialable if you arrived at the beach in the morning. Beach towels were readily available. We took a taxi to the grocery store and loaded up for the week. People say that it is expensive. I would say 20-30% higher than the States. It's to be expected. Everything has to be imported. Grace Bay beach is gorgeous and great for walking to the other resorts. The restaraunt at the resort is just fine. After all, we were staying at a condo with a full kitchen. We did eat breakfast a couple of times and it was really good. There is also a bar. Beach service from the bar was sporadic, but it was not a big concern for us. The pools were beautiful. If it was too windy at the beach, the pools were just perfect. Great hot tub, as well!
There are some really good restaurants within healthy walking distance from the resort and we had a lot of fun venturing out at night for dinner. Yes, of course, you will pay appropriately for a really nice dinner. Dinnng out and exploring is part of the fun for us when we travel. We did go to Pizza Pizza for a less expensive meal. It was really great. The family sized salad was awesome. We had a bad experience at Cailico Jack's. It's an OK place for drinks but the food service was painfully slow and the food wad dissapointing. The outdoor dining atmosphere at Coco Bistro was enchanting, The food was really good and the service was impeccable. The Caicos Cafe was the best dining experience that we had. Wonderful food!
Providenciales is a quiet place. Many of the resorts have evening
entertainment. The Royal West Indies is a very quiet and restful place during the evening hours. You can sit out on the deck and enjoy the peacefulness in the tropical warmth.
The waiters, waitresses, taxi drivers, and other service people were very friendly, if not, a bit shy.
I highly recommend this resort!
