My husband and I (early 30s) are visting TCI for the first time with our 14 month old. We are considering either the one bedroom luxury at the west bay club or the english cottage room at the somerset with a gardenview.
I am torn because usually I wouldnt care too much about our room, but with a baby (and naps, an earlier bedtime, etc.) i feel like we will likely be spending more time in our room that i normally would so it might be nice to have dinner on the balcony, etc. if that baby is sleeping.
The most important thing to us is to be at a smaller resort. I don't like the "big resort" type hotels where you need to get to the pool/beach early to get a chair, etc. It would also be nice to have a few restaurants or bar to get drinks at within walking distance, although from my research it seems like everyone recommends renting a car....although, again, with a baby the convenience of being able to walk to a few restaurants or cook dinner in our suite would be nice. Umbrellas/beach chairs to provide shade are also a must for the baby - but it doesnt seem like this will be an issue anywhere. Snorkeling isnt a big deal to us - just a nice beach and pool (which again, seem amazing at either resort).
We also considered Turks and Caicos Club and Grace Bay Club, but likely WBC and Somerset better. However, if there is something else i am not considering that you think would be good for us, please let me know.
Thank you all SOOO much for your help - i am so looking forward to our first time to TCI!
