Just a Short Drive from the Airport

One of the most stressful parts of a family vacation is traveling from the airport to the hotel in one piece. This part can be especially stressful when travelling with small children. A shorter drive to the resort means spending less time being stressful and more time enjoying your time on the island.

Did you know The Sands Resort is a 15-minute drive from Providenciales International Airport?  Enjoy a relaxing vacation almost as soon as you arrive on one of the world’s most celebrated beaches.

Relaxing Family-Friendly Accommodations

Consider the Sands as your home away from home for the duration of your vacation. Relax on a comfy couch in the living room or enjoy a family meal together in the dining room. Feel like a professional chef in a state-of-the-art modern kitchen complete with a full stove, refrigerator, dinnerware and cutlery.

The Sands is located right on Grace Bay beach so families will always be right where the fun is. Take a dip in one of the resort’s three canal-connected swimming pools and enjoy stunning views of the island. The 18-foot diameter pool is ideal for families with small children.

Looking to shoot hoops or have a friendly rally? Our tennis and basketball courts are available for all our guests. Reserve a time at the front desk between the hours of 6:00am and 11:00pm. Racquets are available for use and there are tennis balls for sale at the hotel’s convenience store.

Enjoy the Spa Alone or with the Entire Family

Spending time at the spa is the perfect way to relax and unwind with your family. Located in Building 1, Spa Tropique offers a blissful spa experience that is steps away from your hotel room. The Mommy and Me Little Mermaid is perfect for mothers and daughters who want to have a spa day.

Mom and Dad hoping for a couple’s massage or a romantic dinner alone? The resort offers in-room babysitting services. Contact us to arrange child minding while you spend quality time together!

Enjoy Fun and Exciting Excursions as a Family

There is no shortage of exciting activities to enjoy while is Provo. The Sands provides free rentals of kayaks, snorkeling gear, bicycles, and stand-up paddleboards to all guests.  Take a cab to the Coral Gardens where the little ones can wade into the shallow reef and experience the island’s vibrant marine life.

The resort can help make tour arrangements for families with older children. A popular choice is the half-day Snorkel and Conch cruise by Caicos Dream Tours.

Enjoy a Family Dinner Together

Provo has several great options for a family dinner. Enjoy the best in local cuisine at the Thursday Fish Fry at Bight Park.  Nosh on local favorites such as conch fritters and fried fish.  Families with small children may wish to be cautious as this event is popular with locals and tourists alike.

Families looking for a more traditional restaurant experience should check out Da Conch Shack.  The restaurant was named as one of the world’s best beachfront restaurants by CNN and features family friendly local fare.  Mr. Groupers is another family-friendly option.  The restaurant offers affordable local fare and kids’ meal options.
