Turks and Caicos was FAB!

The Carib Club is not a 'hotel', it is condominiums #studios, one-bedroom# and it is not located on the beach thus you really need a car if you are going to stay here. It's a great value and the place is clean, but you need a car to get to and from the beach, stores, restaurants, etc. as it's not really safe to be walking on the main roads at night #risk getting hit by a car# and it's too hot during the day to be outside walking around in the sun.
We stayed in one of the studio condos #B102#. I thought it wierd that the sliding glass door did not have a lock on it, but the maintenance help quickly fixed the situation and provided us with a work-around safety measure by jamming wood under the door to prevent it from opening. The condo we stayed in was very basic, meaning there is not a lot of extras provided in the room/kitchen #i.e. very limited kitchen utensils, pots and pans#, but all in all it was fine and we made due. Word of caution, if you are a light sleeper, ask for a condo unit that you do not have anyone living or staying above you as we could hear the people above us walking, talking, etc.
The maintenance staff at Carib Club were amazing and very helpful and did everything they could to make our stay memorable and enjoyable #hats down to the maintenance guy there as he is a very hard worker#. I definitely will return to TCI and will consider the Carib Club again, but it would have been nice to be on a beach.
