It's not quite the intimate enclave it once was when it had only handful of suites and few neighbors crowding against its sugar-white beach. But the Grace Bay Club, a Mediterranean-style resort now expanded to 89 suites, continues to be one of the most desirable addresses in the Turks & Caicos. The original suites, extensively renovated and now named The Hotel at Grace Bay Club, remain adults-only, with their own restaurant, bar, and swimming pool. All have big bathrooms and small kitchens. For families, there are 59 suites in a new section called The Villas at Grace Bay Club, whose pool, perhaps in acknowledgment of how taxing family travel can be, has a swim-up bar. The Anani Spa has moved out of tents on the beach (although treatments there are still an option) and into its own air-conditioned digs, and the Anacaona restaurant, long considered the place on the island at which to dig deep into your wallet for that one special meal, has had a face-lift. One thing hasn't changed, though: The staff still brings sorbet and chilled fruit to your flopping place on the beach.

"It's one place in the islands that the saying 'No problem' is truly meaningful." "Very attractive, high-end suites" with kitchenettes also have private balconies that look out onto 11 beachfront acres. Grill Rouge's focal point is the fire pit, and its culinary focus is French. Staff are "well trained, with high energy."
