The Accommodations They Offer
The Alexandra Resort offers a variety of rooms. You are sure to find the room that is perfect you and your family. This resort is a great place for couples but also great for families. It just depends on what you are looking for in your vacation.
Types of Rooms Include:
Each room is designed to fit your needs. The studio rooms are perfect for couples. We always stay in a studio room. They are affordable and are the perfect size for the two of us. The studio rooms have kitchenettes. The kitchenette is just what you need for preparing a simple breakfast and lunch in the room.
The studio rooms have a small refrigerator, a microwave, a sink and a coffee pot. There are also plates and cups in the cabinets for your use. Each studio room is around 450 square foot and comes with either a balcony or deck. We like to stay on a lower level as we actually prefer to take the stairs instead of waiting for the elevator.
The studio bathrooms are a nice size. They have a one sink vanity and a shower. It is not huge and over the top, but perfect for what you need.
One or More Bedrooms
All studio rooms offer kitchenettes while the other rooms all have full kitchens. If your family is vacationing with you or you plan to cook in, a room with a full kitchen is the best choice for you. Cooking in the room definitely saves you money. Yet, we often choose to eat a simple breakfast and lunch in and eat out at night. If you are feeding more than the two of you, cooking in saves lots of money.
All rooms come standard with a flat screen TV, cable TV, a DVD player, and high speed internet.
Each room offers either a garden view, ocean view, or full beachfront view. We travel on a budget and stay in the garden view rooms. The beach front views are amazing, but the garden views are not so bad either.
So, if you are on a budget and need to book a garden view, do not stress. You will get an amazing room as well. Also, remember, you are not in the room that often. In just a few short steps you are at the beach no matter what.
No matter which room you choose you will be happy. There is not a bad room on the property. Not only are the rooms nice, but also affordable for most budgets.
Activities at the Alexandra Resort
o Stand-Up Paddle Boards
o Snorkeling Equipment
o A Large Pool
o Caicos Dream Tours on Property (extra cost)
The Alexandra Resort offers a ton of free activities. For free, yes free, you can enjoy non-motorized water sports, a large swimming pool, tennis, a gym, bicycles, and the beach of course. The best free activity is the beach in my opinion. We do not go to Turks and Caicos to hang out in the room or by the pool all day. We head straight for Grace Bay beach.
The non-motorized water sports include kayaks, paddle boards, hobie-cats, and snorkeling equipment. All you have to do is check these items out and off you go. We always go in the off season so we have never had a problem getting any of these items whenever we please.
While at the beach you have use of beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels. You can also order food and drinks directly from the beach.
While at the pool you will enjoy complimentary chairs and towels as well. There is also a nice swim up bar where you can order drinks. The beachfront bar offers a happy hour special daily which we always take advantage of.
The Manager’s Party
Each week the Alexandra Resort has a manager’s cocktail party. We suggest going to this. You get free drinks and free appetizers. We enjoyed rum punch, wine, and delicious appetizers from the restaurant.
Dining on the Property
It is always great staying at a resort that offers food and drinks. There is a new restaurant on the property called Asu on the Beach. At Asu on the Beach you can order breakfast, lunch, or dinner dishes. You can eat indoors or out. We always choose to outdoors while in Turks and Caicos.
You can also choose to take the free shuttle to Beach House Turks and Caicos as well as Blue Haven Resort and Marina. Each of these are sister resorts and offer great dining options as well. We take advantage of the free shuttle and go get lunch or dinner at the sister resorts.
There are several restuarants within walking distance to the Alexandra Resort. You have Mr. Groupers, Somewhere Café, Hemingway’s, and Bay Bistro. Mr. Groupers is the shortest walk of all. The others are short walks down the beach. If you do not mind a decent walk, you will be fine.
During daylight hours, you can check out a bicycle and ride into town. This ride is a over a mile but we made it no problem. We like to think of our daily bike rides as our exercise for the day. If you want an early dinner you can take the bikes and go eat. We stayed out after dark one night and learned that we were supposed to have the bikes back before dark for safety reasons. We understood.
The airport is about a 15 minute drive.
Our Experiences at the Resort
We stayed in the Alexandra Resort on our first trip to Turks and Caicos. When we arrived at the airport we waited in line and hopped on a bus with several other couples.
We were one of the last ones dropped off. I still remember the anticipation of arriving at our resort. We could see sneak peaks of the turquoise water as we dropped each guest off at their resorts.
When we finally arrived, we were greeted with glasses of Rum Punch. The Rum Punch was delicious by the way.
We stay in a studio garden view room. The rooms are cozy and offer a nice view of the garden. The studio rooms are perfect for the two of us and great for those of us that travel on a budget.
We always enjoy the Alexandra Resort. The layout of the property is great. We love the beach area and love the complimentary non-motorized water sports.
Many great memories have been made at this resort. We spend long days at the beach and enjoy the free activities. In the afternoons when the sun goes down we make our way to the pool area and enjoy happy hour drinks. Afterwards, we get ready and go out to dinner.
Even though the Alexandra Resort is within walking distance to several restaurants, there are many more that are not so close. If you want to eat at these other places on more than one occasion, you should rent a car. Some of our favorite places to eat are too far to walk. Therefore, a rental car or taxi is your only choice.
If you are looking for a great resort at budget friendly prices, then look no further. We have nothing bad to say about the Alexandra Resort.
