1. Re: Turks and Caicos

budgets totally help, and your definition of "nice"--do you mean Ritz, Marriott or Holiday Inn type? (to compare)

Will you get a car? (taxi expensive)

Do you want to snorkel close by?

Anything else to better help you?

OCW looks nice good, beachfront, centrally located near restaurants and shopping. Right next door is Villa del Mar, not oceanfront (1 minute walk through beautiful Grace Bay Club), upscale recent and clean accomodation and unbeatable price, 42 condos-type suites. Check it out.

We're heading to Le Vele in a couple weeks and chose it because it is small and looks very high end with out the snootyness. Val at T&C reservation made the suggestion and we are glad he did, we couldn't beat the 2 free nights deal (pay for 3, stay for 5). It doesn't have a bar or restaurant on site but very close to others. Also, all rooms are oceanfront!

we love OCW, very casual and beachy and beautiful grounds with a great pool and a very teenage friendly cafe. We are going for the 4th time in July this time with our 15 year old. You might also look into the Sands.

with teenagers i would guess you would want a resort with a restaurant on site. OCW is a good choice, on the eastern side of Grace Point you may also want to look at Ocean Club East {OCW's sister property} ,Royal West Indies or Villa Del Mar (no restaurant on site but walkable to many ). on the western side of Grace Point in addition to the Sands (mentioned above) you should consider the Alexandra which has Mango Reef on site for food and drink or Coral Gardens which has Somewhere on site for food and drink and is adjacent to off the beach snorkeling.

I couldn't agree more with those who have given advise on OCW. This resort is centrally located, has a large expansive beach in front, great restaurant/bar, wonderful pool (but who needs the pool when you have Grace Bay), very friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms and is at a decent price point for what it has to offer. Resort has studios up to 3 bedroom units and would nicely fit your family.

There are many restaurants within walking distance as well as a grocery store, so if you choose not to rent a car these would all be within walking distance. The only drawback with OCW is it is a distance from snorkeling, but for those who rent a car this is not an issue

Have stayed there on all of our trips to Provo and are already booked to return the day after Thanksgiving. I honestly think you can't go wrong with OCW.

We recently stayed at Ocean Club East and got upgraded to a 2 bedroom 3 bath unit. It was very nice, well-maintained and comfortable. We prefer the beach at OCE to OCW.
