We landed at the Providenciales (Provo) airport. It is a small airport but was air conditioned and had several immigrations and customs officials there to greet us. Our ride to Beaches was only about 15 minutes.
There are 16 restaurants on the resort — including culinary treats of Caribbean, Japanese, Italian, French, Seafood, Tex Mex and even Sushi. Two of the resorts are adult-only. The Butler level suites offer 24 hour room service as well.
The resort also features 7,000 square feet of retail shopping space. I was able to get a massage in the Red Lane Spa & Gym, and it was a great treatment.
Pirates Island themed aquapark offers 9 slides, a lazy river, surf simulator, water cannons, cranks and spray features. There are also 4 pools (3 of which are heated) throughout the resort. The beach is pristine (it is a 12 mile stretch of walkable beach) and the water is calm and a gorgeous turquoise!
The Sesame Street characters are here for the kids (and kids at heart). Big Bird just came to Beaches and we got to meet him upon our arrival. Today we saw the kids baking chocolate chip cookies with Cookie Monster and Erine had a rubber duckie hunt. There is programming for kids of all ages and you can even pay for private in room baby-sitting if you desire.
For the tweens and teens there is a Scratch DJ Academy, Club Liquid – the dance club, and the X Box Games Garage with plasma screens and the latest games on the market.
This resort is the perfect place for families to share special occasions, such as a reunion, or for girlfriends to come for the BFF weekends, and for couples to celebrate their love. The tropical gardens and graceful palms welcome you. The sunsets are the perfect end to another day in Paradise.
