"My husband, two sons (23 and 26) and I just got back from a 5 night stay at this beautiful condo on gorgeous Grace Bay. It was an incredible vacation and the accommodations were a big part this! I had already decided to stay at the RG because of its central locations and just happened to look at VRBO and found this amazing 3 bedroom condo for less than a 2 bedroom through the hotel site. Needless to say, our kids were delighted to have their own room and bath. The decor is lovely and beds so comfortable. Great kitchen and beautiful bathrooms. The balcony overlooking the ocean was our favorite spot. Eating breakfast, having predinner cocktails. and just sitting around and talking. Incredible breeze and wonderful hearing the ocean.
Things could not have gone more smoothly. Candy and Craig immediately answered any questions and were great about sending any information we requested. The in town manager, Nicola, was at the reception when we arrived and gave us a tour of the facility. She also had made us some advance dinner reservations, had a pull cart for us to take to the grocery and gave us a cell phone to use while we where there, which was really nice. It was great to know we could call her at a moments notice, but everything ran so smoothly, we did not need her much.
The staff at the RG was really wonderful. So friendly and helpful. Always plenty of beach towels for the pool or beach, umbrellas ready. Great pool side bar-Turks Head Lager was cold and perfect on hot afternoon. They offered great beach and pool service. The pool was beautiful, grounds lovely and everything so clean and well maintained. Not enough adjectives to describe sand and turquoise waters.
We were fine not having a car. Were able to walk to all the restaurants, either along the beach or on Grace Bay Road. Grace Bay Gourmet was a 10 minute walk and had everything.
Had delicious fresh fish at almost every meal. Ate at Bay Bistro (twice), Coco Bistro, Seven, Caicos Cafe, Hemingways, Somewhere, Cabana Beach Bar and the sports bar in town. Lots of places closed on Sunday, so make sure you figure that out. We never did get to Vix, Bouchon or Bella Italiano, so will have to do those on our return visit! Walked to Coral Reef and snorkeled-rented the equipment when we got there.
The RG concierge arranged a taxi for us to go to the airport-Note that fee is about $14.00 per person, so make sure you have cash.
All in all, paradise and thanks to the Davenports for making it so!!"
