Where to stay.

Planning our first trip to Turks end of April. Two couples in their forties with no kids. We both like to sit on the beach during the day, enjoy a cocktail and then go out at night to dinner, maybe some dancing, probably spend two days exploring island but more of a relaxing vacation to get away. We have children so are not opposed to resorts with kids but don't want to feel like its our family vacation. Adult time appreciated. Please can you give me some suggestions. Friends have stayed at beaches and seven stars but worried it may be too family oriented. Would really appreciate help. Thank you!

Can you give us your budget, and how many bedrooms you will need. Are you renting a car? Do you like to snorkel? Do you want an onsite restaurant?

Most resorts along Grace Bay are condo's with full kitchens etc... just so you know.

We can help you more with more information, or your going to get many resorts to choose from with everyone on here giving you their favorites, and confusing you even more

POINT GRACE would be a consideration for the no children, mature couples resorts. Rent a car for your stay to explore the culture of the island and go out to eat. I think you will enjoy your adult time. DR. JIM

Thanks Dr. Jim.

okay more info, sorry didn't include at first. Budget is flexible, around $600 per night per room. 2 rooms needed. Would prefer full service hotel not renting a condo. Restaurant on site needed. Would rent a car but wouldd like to be close to other restaurants. We are not snorklers. I would like to be at a resort that has a beach bar, maybe a spa. Thanks so much for your help.

April can be busy no matter where you are since some kids are on spring vaca.

Almost all places here are condo/hotels.

Ck out Gansevoort, Palms and Regent Grand to start

Definetly not Beaches, but definetly consider Seven Stars.

We stayed there 2 years ago, as a couple, and enjoyed it . While there were families there, it wasn't over run and we did not feel like we were the minority couple at a family resort. I woud l say couples out numbered families, but there was room for both - especially at the beach, as it seemed there were more kids at the pool.

We are returning in a few weeks.

I have to agree with DR JIM on this one. Every time iv'e walked through Point Grace it was so peaceful, no matter what time of year. They also have just about everything you're looking for. Great Spa, Romantic Restaurant, Pool Bar Area, Hammocks. Kids are allowed at the resort, but they cater to couple. I have maybe seen two kids there in all my visits.

You are also close enought to walk to many restaurants, and shops at the Regent Village.

You may want to consider Seven Stars.

It has a good mix of guests from young newlyweds celebrating their honeymoon to more mature adults celebrating a birthday or other special occasion. It was recently recognized as the #1 resort by Conde Nast in Turks and Caicos.

It has three on-site restaurants/bars. It has a very casual pool-side restaurant/bar, Sand Dollar; casual oceanfront restaurant/bar, The Deck (with live entertainment 4-5 nights per week), and a fine dining restaurant/bar, Seven. There are an ample number of lounge chairs at a newly constructed teak oceanfront deck overlooking Grace Bay and poolside at a very large salt water pool which is one, if not the only, heated pool on the island.

Also, there are a number of complimentary activities such as a two 24/7 tennis courts; fleet of bicycles; and water sports equipment (Hobie Cat sail boats, ocean kayaks, paddle boards, etc.).

Thank you for the suggestions. Both Seven Stars and Point Grace look perfect. Any thoughts on Gansevoort? Looks lovely but may be a younger crowd. Is there a casino on the island? I really think this island is perfect for us but want to make sure enough to do at night.

TCI is not really a party island.

There is a casino. They will pick you up at your hotel.

40's is a young crowd. They usually have many people on a Friday at the bar.
