This was truly the most magical getaway if you are more of a "do it yourselfer" and like to be away from crowds and resorts. We have stayed on Providenciales and we are now hooked on getting to the other islands. You have the beach pretty much to yourself and the Hollywood Suites are provisioned perfectly-snorkel, kayak, bicycles for outdoor activities, and the kitchen/cooking equipment is awesome-and so is the outdoor grill with a view....and the screened porch is the best idea to maximize your outdoor experience since there are mosquitos occasionally. Alveda is the best-she takes care of you if you need-she will cook amazing dinners, bring fish, or just leave you alone so that you can relax. We feel the price is a great deal-right on the beach, and did not see anything like this that was well cared for, etc. while on North Caicos.
There are mosquitos and no-see-ums, but only at certain parts of the day. The suites are next to each other, so that only a screen separates you from each of the units when sitting in your enclosed patio.
We brought bottles of wine and a bottle of rum in our suitcases, olive oil, seasoning salt, coffee, and a plastic lemon of lemon juice. We stopped at IGA before the ferry and stocked up on everything else-it's worth it to menu plan a little. Alveda brought us fish and we even made our own fresh conch fritters, fresh from the front yard (ocean!).
This is definitely not for everyone-most of our friends prefer a more "resort" experience, but this was our favorite vacation getaway ever-and we have traveled to many tropical places in the Caribbean and Central America. We spent 3 years on a sailboat sailing from San Diego to Florida through the Panama Canal-so we do like things adventurous-but with the comforts of home.
