My partner and I are thinking about booking a trip to T&C for July. It will be our first trip to the Caribbean. We're looking at the Gansevoort hotel in Providenciales. It looks beautiful and modern.
This will be a different kind of vacation for us. We never stay in hotels/resorts; we usually rent homes through VRBO or Home Away. Our two favorite things about vacations are the food and aimlessly exploring the local towns. I am a bit worried if we'll be able to enjoy those things when staying at a resort.
Here are my questions:
1.If we stay in Providenciales, will we be in resort central? Will it be possible/easy to explore the local towns? Are there little towns? We don't want to be confined to a hotel for a week.
2. Are there local/small places to eat? Of course, I'm sure the resorts have wonderful food, but we'd really like to "eat where the locals eat."
3. Anyone stayed at Gansevoort? The TA reviews are all favorable. Though, we're open to suggestions!
Thanks so much for your help!
