Located on a stunning beach, with so many great inclusions for every member of your family, this resort is a stand out among vacation options. But with five distinct villages, this is an overwhelming vacation to plan. You may be wondering which village is best at Beaches Turks and how on earth to choose from one of over 45 room options? That’s okay – I’m here to help! Keep reading for my ultimate guide to each village and some hints for booking the best rooms at Beaches Turks and Caicos!
As a certified Sandals Specialist, I was invited to go back to the beach with Beaches Resorts. As always, all opinions are my own.
Where to stay at Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort Villages
Beaches Turks and Caicos is a stunning family-friendly, all-inclusive resort in the Turks and Caicos island chain. Located on one of the best beaches in the entire world, everyone loves this resort.
But Beaches is a large resort with so many options. Not only are there five distinct vacation villages, within each village there are MANY room categories to choose from. It’s very overwhelming and for that reason it’s ALWAYS recommended to book your Beaches (or Sandals) vacation with a Certified Sandals Specialist, like myself. I can help you decide which Beaches Resort is best for you!
In my office, I actually have a book I call my Sandals Bible which is 100’s of pages thick detailing every aspect of every resort in the brand. And trust me, I use that book often!
I have booked many happy families to all the Beaches resorts (and happy couples to Sandals) but so far, my knowledge has only been on paper. For that reason I was so excited to be invited to tour Beaches Turks and Caicos with a group of local agents and experience the resort first hand. I also just returned home from a great stay at Beaches Negril in Jamaica, which is another great family all inclusive option!
There were so many things I wanted to see and experience here, but most of all I really wanted to see the spread of the resort and get a vibe for the distinct villages. This helps me better assist YOU in planning your Beaches trip!

How Many Villages are in Beaches Turks and Caicos?
Beaches Turks is in fact one resort and guests have carte blanche throughout the property (minus the adults only area, which is obviously for adults only). So no matter where you stay, nothing is off-limits, but you want to match your vacation style (and budget) with the best village for your family.
The five villages at Beaches Turks are the Italian Village, French Village, Caribbean Village, Key West Village, and Seaside Suites.
Each section is well-themed and has pools, restaurants and it’s own lobby area. Each village is like a mini-resort within a resort – with the exception of the Seaside Village – this is within the Caribbean Village and represents the rooms in that area closest to the beach.
What surprised me most on my recent visit to Beaches Turks and Caicos is that although it is a very large resort, with so much on offer, it does not feel massive and overwhelming. You could easily walk around from village to village, and although there are golf carts available to shuttle you around the property, you really don’t need them.
Location of Each Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos
From east to west, Key West Village is the furthest east on property. As you go west along the beach, you next come to the Italian Village, then the Caribbean/Seaside. Behind the Caribbean Village is the French Village, furthest away from the beach.
Besides location, each village offers something different, so let’s go over the five options.
Key West Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos
Key West Village Overview: The Key West Village is the newest village at Beaches Turks and Caicos. With great Key West style theming and large, villa accommodations, this was honestly my favorite area of the resort. It is a quieter section though, no nightlife to be had. All of the rooms in Key West are butler or concierge level rooms.
Key West Village Stand out Accommodations: The largest unit on property is located in Key West – the four bedroom oceanfront villa with private plunge pool. These units are #vacationgoals and book up fast and early on! Most units here have a washer/dryer.
Key West Village Restaurants: Bayside, Neptune’s and the Sky restaurant, which is adults only
Key West Village Features: Has its own concierge lounge and departure lounge. There are a few small, quiet pools in this area.
The Key West Village is Best For: Large families who want 2, 3, or 4 bedroom villas. Worth noting that many of the villas here have internal stairs. This part of Beaches is perfect for those that want a quiet area of the resort, but want to be close to the beach.
Italian Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos
Italian Village Overview: The Italian Village is a fan favorite. A central location with a huge pool that has a swim up bar and a great vibe.
Italian Village Stand out Accommodations: Italian Village Concierge Family Suite with Kids Room. These rooms have a separate kids room with twin bunk beds and a trundle. They can connect to a living room/kitchen space to make a two bedroom that sleeps 10-12 people. For the ultimate view, book an oceanfront room.
Italian Village Restaurants: Mario’s, Barefoot’s by the Sea, Bombay, and Dino’s pizza
Italian Village Features: The swim up pool at the Italian Village a popular spot to spend a day in paradise. The Italian Village offers a large concierge lounge and a central resort location.
The Italian Village is Best For: Families who want to be in the heart of the action.
Caribbean Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos
Caribbean Village Overview: The Caribbean Village is in a great central location and is where you will find the kids club.
Caribbean Village Stand out Accommodations: The Caribbean Deluxe Double or King is the lead in room category at the resort. This is a great choice for families looking to get on property at a lower price point. Those rooms have everything you need and are right in the middle of the entire resort.
Caribbean Village Restaurants: Reflections, Sopadilla’s, Bella Napoli
Caribbean Village Features: Kids Club, large swim up bar, large pool, adult hot tub, close to Treasure Beach, playground, basketball court
The Caribbean Village is Best For: Families who want to be in the heart of the action but at a possibly lower price than the Italian Village
Seaside Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos
Seaside Village Overview: Seaside Village consist of the one and two story “huts” that are closest to the beach in the Caribbean Village area. These rooms have been recently renovated and have a more modern décor than Italian, Caribbean or French Village.
Seaside Village Stand out Accommodations: The Seaside one bedroom concierge villa is usually the best priced one bedroom unit on property. This is a great choice for families that want to book into a concierge level room. I also LOVE the Seaside two bedroom villa, this is like a mini house and the bathroom in the primary bedroom is one of the best hotel bathrooms I’ve ever seen! The two bedroom is a butler level room
Seaside Village Restaurants: Arizona’s, Schooners, and the Jerk Shack
Seaside Village Features: Close to the beach
Seaside Village is Best For: Families who want more space than a standard hotel room and want to be close to the beach.

French Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos
French Village Overview: The French Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos is located back behind the Pirate’s Island Waterpark and feels like its own separate hotel.
French Village Stand out Accommodations: The French Village Deluxe Double/King can price out really well, but the rooms here only have Juliet balconies (unlike the Caribbean Village lead in rooms that do have patios or balconies). A three bedroom French Village Concierge Suite is three connecting rooms and can sleep up to 14 guests.
French Village Restaurants: Chateau, Café de Paris, Bobby Dee’s, Giuseppe’s, Kimono’s and Soy, food trucks – Mac & Cheese (Mac Daddy’s) and Curls & Swirls (ice cream and shakes)
French Village Features: Close to the waterpark, large pool, large lawn for running around
The French Village is Best For: Families who want to be more off the beaten path. Rooms in the French Village price out really well.
Tips for Booking Beaches Turks and Caicos:

- Upgrade to a concierge or butler level room. NO ONE regrets this!
- Your vacation includes EVERYTHING so don’t be afraid of the upfront cost. There are very few upcharges, this is truly an all-inclusive vacation.
- Book early (like over a year in advance) for best rates and the best room options. Beaches Resorts fill up fast, especially for holidays and school breaks. A room at Beaches can be secured with only a $400 deposit ($800 for Christmas week) so it’s a no-brainer to lock in your space as early as possible! PS. Except for Christmas week and the four bedroom Key West villa, that deposit is fully refundable up until 60 days prior to travel.
- If you are traveling within the next 11 months and I can put a package together (depending on your airline) and I can most likely use a promo code (in addition to getting you a contracted air rate you can only get through an agent) which will save you money on the bundle.
- ALWAYS book your next Beaches (or Sandals) vacation when you are on property. Just go to the Loyalty and Travel desk and they will offer you a great rate! But don’t worry, with one quick email I can still be your agent on record and can help service your reservation with that personalized service.
