Ember, Desiree (my niece) and I went to Turks and Caicos in May of 2008. We stayed at the Beaches Ultra All-Inclusive resort over there. It was nice but when I made the reservation 4 months prior to me going, I didn't know that there would be construction happening at the time that I would be there. Apparently, they didn't report it on the website until a month before I went. Beaches was expanding their resort to include a giant water park and another luxury series of suites (the Italian Village). If I had known about this, I would have put off my Turks and Caicos trip another year.
We stayed in the French village. The pool closest to our rooms were nice but the girls wanted to stay at the kids pirate pool area because they had a restaurant nearby. All they did was eat. lol I went to a casino one night while I was over there and we went to a go-cart park one day also. But we spent most of our time on the resort. There was so much to do. Desiree and I learned how to scuba dive. When it was time to do it in the open sea, I couldn't because I couldn't keep my mouth on the regulator (my mouth was still a little paralyzed from the Bells Palsy I had earlier in the year). But Desiree was able to scuba dive and she loved it. It was worth the money to see her happy.
Ember participated in a childrens fashion show on the resort and I played Texas Hold Em one evening with other guests at the resort. The girls and I spent most of our time either at the beach or pool. The weather was beautiful.
