Turks and Caicos is a pricey place...but my husband and I are very happy we found Villa del Mar for our honeymoon. We loved having a condo with a full kitchen for a week. Lots of space with a great balcony. Just a very short walk to the beach (the little walk is very much worth it for how much you save over hotels that are right on the beach). The employees were very helpful and kind. There is no restaurant at the hotel but with sooooo many great restaurants on the island, that was no problem. We wouldn't have wanted an all-inclusive where you would feel guilty eating anywhere else. If you don't try the local food, you are really missing out! Great resorts with spas are in walking distance if you are interested in that. Very pleased!!

We have just returned from a week at Villa del Mar. We rented a 3 BR unit which is essentially a 2+1BR lockoff. We liked the configuration as we could put the kids 3 - 13, 10, 8) on one side and have some privacy but still open access across units. The unit worked perfect.

The unit is not on the beach but is literally a 2 minute walk. As others have said, the guys at the beach are great and will get you hooked up on any excursions that you want to take.

We were easily able to walk to Coco Bistro, Caicos Cafe, Via Veneto, Upstairs Cafe, Seven, and Caicos Bakery to eat, among others.

The breakfast is a true continental, but functional. We went to the bakery many days.

The reasons we rate Villa del Mar so highly are as follows:

1. Great setup of room
2. Great beach setup with towels, chairs, umbrellas provided.
3. Nice pools with a low volume of people.
4. Unbelievable location in the middle of all the nicest restaurants.
5. Love daily maid service. If you time share, you forget how nice that is.
6. Great price. Walk across the street and your price easily doubles for the view. Go to Sandals and the price gets crazy, and you end up staying on site and not enjoying all that there is to do on the island.

We usually spring for the high dollar hotel, but, in reading the reviews for Villa del Mar, we felt like we could get a good spot to stay and still explore the island. We feel like we did.

Not so good things? My only criticisms would be the following:

1. Breakfast is free and advertised as continental, but it is basic. Don't expect much.
2. They need to stock more pool towels. We had 2 occasions where they were out.

All in all, we loved our stay. I would do it all over again and save the money to stay here versus the other places we saw as we went for dinner, etc. Great hotel for the price.

Villa del Mar is across the street from the beach and such a perfect location. No beach views, but you also don't pay for them, like you would across the street. Much better value for what it is.
We went during the down time of the year, so we probably avoided some of the hustle and bustle anyway, but VdM is just quiet and smaller which we really liked. It made our trip much more relaxing and romantic.
Also it is in a great part of the beach, we walked several miles down the beach and when you get close to one of the big all-inclusive family resorts (Sandals, maybe?) the beach gets to be about 20' of sand and is just full of people. At VdM the beach is 100' of sand and it's spacious. VdM also has umbrellas and chairs by the beach with full bar service which was great.
Would absolutely stay here again.

We just got back from a week at Villa Del Mar. This was our second time to T & C. What an awesome place. Rooms were immaculate, staff very friendly, pools and grounds were exceptionally clean. Literally a 4 minute walk from room to toes in the sand. Continental breakfast in the morning was limited and you need to get there early or everything will be gone but it served its purpose. With Grace Bay Club right across the street we were free to use all their amenities -- infiniti bar, 2 fire pits surrounded by couches and comfy chairs without having to pay the high cost they charge per night. Captain Bill at the bar was always fun to talk to. The two propane grills provided by the bar were a great extra, especially with the cost of eating out on the island.
The twins at the beach were very attentive and ready with a towel and chairs as soon as you arrived. When we come back to T & C we will definitely stay at Villa Del Mar

We just returned from a 5-night stay at VDM, and we only have positive things to say. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well-equipped with anything you may need (pots, pans, coffee maker, etc.). The staff (as well as pretty much everyone on the Turks & Caicos Islands) was very gracious -- special shout-outs to Captain Bill at the bar and Lerone and Kerone at the beach. The pool is spacious and clean, and VDM has some of the most comfortable lounge chairs I've ever used. Literally a 90-second walk from the beach. All of this at a fraction of the price of what you will pay at nearby resorts. We will be back to VDM ASAP.
