If you follow me on social media or have seen some of my previous posts, you know I attended the Social Media On the Sand conference at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resorts last month. We decided to make it a family holiday and stayed an extra three days.
We had a wonderful time at Beaches and came back recharged and ready to take on winter. The boys have already asked to go back to Turks & Caicos a few times as this was a top highlight for them as far as tropical vacations. We all loved the gorgeous beaches with warm, turquoise water and how family friendly the resort was.
Something we all also loved about the resort was the food. Beaches Turks & Caicos offers 22 dining options, and they have 21 international restaurants. There is a cuisine for everyone, including French cuisine, Oriental, Southwestern, Italian, Caribbean and more, prepared by Chefs from all over the world.
Below I am sharing our favourite restaurants at Beaches Turks & Caicos, for the adults and the kids. Sharing in no specific order. If you end up booking a vacation to Beaches Resorts, you don’t want to miss going to these.
♥ The Jerk Shack A True Caribbean Experience
Our favourite lunch spot was definitely the Jerk Shack, and we kept going back. Nothing beats eating on the beach with amazing views and delicious flavours. I mean, seriously the view!
The Jerk Shack offered authentic Jamaican jerk. At the Jerk Shack, chefs apply the jerk cooking style using a marinade or paste that incorporates pimento (allspice) and scotch bonnet peppers. The result, the best Jerk chicken I’ve ever had. Yes, it was that good. We ended up picking up some Jerk sauces from the resort’s gift shop to try to replicate the flavour at home.
♥ Arizona’s Southwestern Cuisine
Arizonas was a favourite for lunch and dinner. We all enjoyed the lunch buffet style eating and the a-la-carte dinner at night. The tavern-style setting by the sea had a great atmosphere that appealed to all of us.
Arizona’s offers traditional favourites like Ceviche, Tortilla Soup and Enchiladas, and also presents dishes such as Mahi Mahi Gratin with Tequila, Grilled Ribeye Steak, and BBQ Baby Back Ribs. Not to be left out, the kids also have plenty of delicious options including BBQ Buffalo Wings, Chicken Tacos and Quesadillas.
Our youngest loved their BBQ Baby Back Ribs and asked for seconds multiple times!
♥ Bella Napoli Pizzeria
Imagine a place where you can go and get delicious hand-tossed and made-to-order wood-fired pizza right after coming out of the pool. Yes, friends, this place was the kid’s favourite. We stopped by there to get a pizza to share every day after spending some time in the pool.
We are talking about brick-oven pizza. High-quality pizza made fresh with mozzarella, homemade tomato sauce, and tasty toppings. So, so good. You can make up your own recipe or select from the menu, so there’s a pizza for everyone in your family, including your pickiest eater!
♥ Marios Finest Italian Cuisine
We all love Italian cuisine, and we found the most delicious authentic Italian food at Marios, including the signature dish, Osso Buco alla Milanese (Braised Veal Shank with Saffron Risotto). The boys loved their spaghetti and meatballs, and we enjoyed the a-la-carte full-course meal.
We also received outstanding service while dining at Marios. Because Beaches Resort’s vacations are truly all-inclusive, they have a no tipping policy. I loved that the servers were amazing even though they weren’t expecting any tips from us at the end of the meal. So great!
We love how elegant Schooners was and that it was located steps from the ocean. You can sit down, relax, feel the sea breeze while drinking a glass of wine and wait for your meal to be served. Such a beautiful and calm atmosphere.
Schooners serves everything from Lemongrass scented Snapper, to a 10 oz. Rib eye. The chefs of this restaurant are also sure to incorporate the famous Turks & Caicos mollusc, Conch, into the sundry menu. Schooners offers the best of the fisherman’s catch. We had the Rib eye, and it was amazing.
