First let me say that Turks and Caicos hasd become our favorite island after going there. It has incredible beaches, great restaurants and is safe.
Now for the Sands. It is in need of an upgrade. It is okay at best. The safe was friendly but not very helpful. We had dinner reservations that were screwed up twice in 6 nights.
As for excursions, you are better off taking care of them on your own before you go to the islands. We used the Caicos Adventures which operates on the property and they were poor at best. I had heard about the great fishing on the islands and was really looking forward to it. I booked a trip and then the day before it was cancelled because they didn't have enough people. Rather than trying to find another boat it was rebooked to the day before I was leaving. On that day, it was too rough so we couldn't go out. When I checked my bill for the Sands it was on there. I asked that it be removed and it was. Then I received my credit card statement and found that Caicos Adventures billed me. I am now trying to deal with the Sands to have it credited.
