The water is turquoise  and the palm trees are waving in the breeze! 
Please enjoy all my videos of my adventures at Beaches Resorts:

VideoWelcome to Beaches Turks and Caicos!

I ate Italian lunch at Marios where you can order linguini alfredo off the menu or sample the buffet. At Beaches Resorts, you can dine with your Sesame Street friends and watch them dance in the show at night!
Make sure to eat at least one meal at Barefoot with your toes in the sand!
Everything at Beaches Resorts is included! You can have your wedding, enjoy scuba diving, kayak, paddle board and eat at any of the twenty restaurants. The drinks are included and there is no tipping!


While I was there, Chef Phil Vickery was filming for his show so I got to have a selfie with him and watch their production team!

My butler, Jomo, brought me to my suite. I loved my home away from home almost as much as the greeting when I arrived. When you check in at Beaches Resorts, they tell you: “Welcome home!”

My balcony overlooked the pool at Italian village. I loved having a desk, dining table, living room and kitchen. My favorite part was the afternoon snacks and evening dessert treats left by Jomo and Harrold.

There are many programs for kids of all ages and many Sandals and Beaches Resorts to consider.

As the sun set, I wandered over to the Beach party! Please see my next video for the Sesame Street party with Zoe and her friends!

This resort is beautiful and has so many villages to explore. I cannot wait to try the restaurants and watch more live shows. This is my first time at a Beaches resort. I went to my first Sandals Resort in Montego Bay in February 2019.

Elanor and I loved dining at Le Petit Chateau for fine French cuisine! Remember you have over twenty dining options, eat by a pool, in your room, at a buffet or at an adults’ only restaurant. The choice is yours and it is ALL included!

Sesame Street characters can be found at breakfast, the Manager’s cocktail party and at special events at Camp Sesame! I loved having my photo with Zoe! Who do you want a picture with?

Lisa at Beaches Turks and CaicosDo you want to take a class? When you are ten years old you can learn to dive! There is also discover scuba diving and Snuba!

For lunch, I went to Key West Village and ate at Bayside which had a buffet. Next door is Neptune’s where you order off a menu. Upstairs is Sky Rooftop Restaurant which is open for breakfast and dinner. The resort is beautifully maintained and I loved watching them make my sushi at Bayside!

There are hammocks, beach chairs and so many pools! Where will you begin?

Jomo, my butler, made me a reservation and escorted me to Bombay for Indian food. If you eat there during the day, it is Dino’s pizzeria which is very tasty too. I loved having Nan bread and curries. After dinner, I stopped at Cricketer’s where you can eat pub food and play pool. Outside of Sky restaurant, there is live music at night under the stars.

When I got back to my room, I had towel animals and dessert waiting for me on my dining room table. I am having the best time at Beaches Turks and Caicos and cannot wait to go diving again!

VideoDiving Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos with Beaches Resorts

I loved diving at Grace Bay with Beaches Turks and Caicos. Captain Lancelot and Divemaster Mark both gave briefings that were very complete and it was clear that safety is a priority on all Beaches Resorts dives! It is only about a ten minute boat ride and the conditions were great! I wore a shortie dive suit and I was very comfortable.

At Cathedral, we saw sharks, porcupine fish, only 2 lion fish, several angel fish, trumpet fish and a really big shark twice. We also saw box fish. I just LOVED being in the water! They have a dive master for every ten divers and they were training a team member on our boat. I was very impressed with all of the dive staff.

Our second dive was at Piranaha cove, we saw more sharks, a turtle with three fins and a gigantic barracuda. I saw a golden spotted moray eel and at least five nudibranchs. I definitely did not want to get out of the water! Diving Beaches Turks and Caicos April 27 2019
