Hotel Review: Alexandra Resort in Turks and Caicos

The view from a private balcony at Alexandra Resort is a sight for sore eyes: water so blue, it’s practically green, and the white sand beach that’s been dubbed the Best Beach in the World. The beachfront resort on the north side of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos is in the middle of the action: right on Grace Bay Beach and within walking distance of the best island’s best shopping. The rooms are spacious and equipped with everything you could possibly need. One of the largests resorts located on Grace Bay Beach, Alexandra Resort has affordable prices  with loads of amenities and a wide variety of room options.

The Room

We stayed in a two bedroom, three bathroom oceanfront suite that had a bonus room with adorably nautical bunk beds. The suite was spacious, airy, and totally beach-y in ambiance. The common area had a dining table, fully equipped kitchen, and half-bath. The ocean view balcony looked out to Grace Bay Beach with access from the living room and master bedroom. The suite even had a smaller, separate balcony off the second bedroom. We could have comfortably fit six people in the two bedroom suite thanks to the pull-out couch.

The Beach

Alexandra Resort is right on acclaimed Grace Bay Beach, which TripAdvisor calls the world’s best beach. It’s no mystery why! Grace Bay Beach has white sand for as far as the eye can see and the turquoise water splashing across your toes. In my humble opinion, Alexandra’s happy yellow umbrellas are the cutest to be seen in the sea of umbrellas on Grace Bay Beach. You can spot Alexandra from quite a way’s away on a boat thanks to the brightly colored hue! A huge bonus of staying at Alexandra Resort is getting picked up your Caicos Dream Tours excursion right on Grace Bay Beach.

Dining

Asú on the Beach is hand’s down one of my top ten favorite restaurants in the world. The setting is so cinematically romantic, you’ll feel like you’re living the last moments of a feel-good romantic comedy, the kind where This Will Be plays during the credits. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’ll probably want to eat all of your meals there (I won’t judge you if you eat multiple orders of the coconut shrimp with pumpkin sauce) but if you want to branch out, you can take the complimentary shuttle to Blue Haven Resort to try Salt or Fire & Ice or Beach House for Kitchen 218.

Amenities

In addition to the world’s best beach, Alexandra Resort offers complimentary non-motorized water sport equipment such as paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkeling equipment. You can also rent bikes for free! The pool at Alexandra Resort is lovely with a swim-up bar Asú beach bar. There’s also a gym and tennis courts. You can also get picked up right on Alexandra Resort’s beach for fun activities such as parasailing or a Caicos Dream Tour excursion.

Alexandra Resort is only about a mile away from Provo’s best shopping: Regent Village and Salt Mills Plaza. We actually walked back from to the resort after shopping but if it’s hot out, be warned: you will be wilted by the time you return. Jump in the ocean to cool off!

The Atmosphere

Alexandra Resort has lush gardens that really make you feel like you’re on a tropical island. The music around the resort ranged from American pop to Caribbean tunes, coupled with the rolling waves of the ocean. The resort comes alive at night with gorgeous island lanterns and strung lights, as if the magnificent sunset lights them all. With 600 feet of beach front, 10 acres of landscaped grounds, and one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to, Alexandra Resort is a beautiful place to stay close to the action in Providenciales.
