Parrot Cay was a really amazing place. Boat ride was a breeze with great views. From arrival into the resort we knew things were going to be great. (we stayed on Grace bay for a couple of days prior to arriving and although we had a great time there too, we were really happy that we had come to Parrot Cay- since it was so private.) They had individual carts ready to go to the main lobby for each guest. Check in was very personal with them giving a glass of champagne followed by leading us to our room which already had our luggage in the room. We stayed in an Ocean Facing Room and the view was fantastic! I was originally a little worried because we were not right on the beach, but the view was really nice and it was just a short walk over to the pool and beach area where we spent all our day. The rooms interior themselves were okay (not anything spectacular) the bathroom was kinda small but it wasn't anything that bothered us terribly. (we spent most of our time either at the beach or on the balcony of our room. The bathroom products, the comfy bed, and the amazing view was really great!
Service at the entire resort including restaurants, guest services, spa, housekeeping was really great. There are a lot of workers here recruited from Bali and they really had a great attitude and tried to do everything they could do accomodate people.
Restaurants had really good food too- I was a little concerned after reading previous posts but everything we had was so yummy- we ate at the Lotus Restuarant a few times and also at the Terrace Restuarant (the Filet was incredible and the Trio of Chocolate dessert is a must for chocolate lovers!). If you want some more variety you can ask for the Spa Menu which is available at all the restaurants for lunch and dinner and it had additional wholesome selections. Food and drinks are expensive here. Alcoholic Drinks can cost from $15-20 each- so come here knowing that! Also may not be a bad idea to pack some liquor with you for drinks in your room in the evenings before dinner. The package deals offered on the websites are really great- try to take advantage of those if you can!
The beach was so beautiful!!!!! We have been to many places around the world and thought the beach at Parrot Cay was among the best! There were virtually no crowds on the beach and not many at the pool on most days too. No worries about getting chairs at this resort- you will be able to find something on the beach or pool.
Surprisingly- there were some children at the resort while we were there. Most of them were by the pool area during the day. If it was us- we would not recommend this place for families with young kids because it is more of a romantic quiet resort with nothing for children. Most of the guests seem to be couples. That being said there were a few and they were sometimes loud- but only at the pool in the afternoon. (Nothing awful- they were just playing around in the water.) If you want more quiet than just go to the beach...
By the way- NO problems at all with Mosquitos! (We had tons of problems with mosquitos while on Grace Bay on Provo-much more than at Parrot Cay! I don't think we even had to spray ourselves with bug spray while here. I guess it just depends on the rains, etc...)
Spa was really relaxing place - definitely get a treatment if you are there- or at least go and see the views on that side of the resort. Book your treatments early or else you may not get the times you want. Yoga class in the morning is a nice start to the day and great for even beginners on most days. Didn't try Pilates but they have that available in the afternoons too. Gym is nice and is open 24 hours a day if want to get a workout in...
I would highly recommend this resort for a nice quiet romantic vacation. Important to note that the resort is on it's own seperate island away from Grace Bay so if you come here you should know that you are going to be at the resort the whole time (meals, etc) There are excursions you can go on (snorkeling, golf, scuba etc) just book with guest services upon arrival if you want to do activities.
We came here to relax and unwind and get away from the crowds and it was the perfect treat for us. We found the resort to be a really romantic place. We will be back and most likely will book a Beach House next time just to try a different category room!
