I can’t believe it! I am over the moon excited to be invited back to the Social Media On The Sand Conference hosted at the All Inclusive Beaches Resorts Turks and Caicos. Last year was a crazy blur trying to work. pack and document my kids’ routine for my parents while my husband and I flew off to bask in the sun on the beach in Turks and Caicos.
As I prepped our suitcases with all the travel necessities to Pack for a Beaches Resorts All Inclusive Vacation, this is the conversation that took place.
DH: What cash do we need?
Me: None. It’s all inclusive.
DH: Do we need a credit card for meals?
Me: No. Meals are included.
DH: Three meals a day?
Me: There are 20 restaurants in the resort. You can have 12 meals a day if you want.
DH: It’s all paid for?
Me: Yes. It’s all included.
DH: How are we getting from the airport to the resort?
Me: Resort Shuttle. It’s all arranged.
DH: Do we need to pay for the transfer?
Me: No. It’s included.
DH: What about snorkeling? Do we need to pay for that?
Me: No. It’s included.
I think you probably get the picture by now, even though it took my husband about 3-4 more times answering questions with the statement “EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED”! Still, you may find yourself asking what can I really expect in a Beaches all-inclusive vacation? Well let me tell you – absolutely everything a family could need, and/or would want for that matter. Comfortable accommodations, numerous restaurants, top-shelf drinks, beach activities, water sports, waterslides, pools, Sesame Street character experiences… the list can go on forever.
Our host resort for the 2015 Social Media on the Sand Conference is again Beaches Turks and Caicos. This unique resort has four distinct sections with the architecture of France, Italy, the Caribbean, and Key West.
Last year we stayed in the lovely Key West section of the resort and were surprised with an amazing upgrade to a gorgeous one bedroom concierge suite featuring a master bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room with flat screen TV and dining table. Our master bedroom had a king sized bed and flat screen TV too just in case your husband is like mine and shows symptoms of withdrawal from a lack of ESPN.
Beaches Turks and Caicos has a breathtakingly gorgeous 12 miles of beach and a 45,000 square foot Pirates Island Waterpark on site. Fun in the sun is simply a few steps outside your room.
Guests can splash, ride, or relax surrounded by water (and smiling faces), morning, noon, and night. Water sports, including motorized watersports, are also all-inclusive. If you’re like me, and haven’t mastered the talent of wake-boarding or even standing up on a paddle board, just ask for a lesson (or five). Lessons are unlimited and included. Beaches has it ALL covered!
If you’re a foodie like me, you will be in heaven while at the resort. Beaches Turks and Caicos has 20 restaurants and 12 bars. I only experienced a few, but even the buffets set up for us were amazingly delicious and offered a nice variety for all attendees. Not to mention a festive, signature cocktail at every meal.
This year the conference schedule is arranged a little differently and offering a little more free time. I hope to experience the vast array of international cuisines offered including a family friendly and entertaining Teppanyaki restaurant, fresh seafood served on the beach, and the brand new Jerk Shack featuring authentic Jamaican Jerk with all the traditional accompaniments. Guests only have the difficult decision of which restaurant to choose because they are all delicious.
So to sum up what’s really included when you visit the All Inclusive Dream at Beaches Resorts Turks and Caicos, the answer is everything you need for an enjoyable family vacation. Book your flight and bring your passport. Paradise is waiting for you.
