When I think about our previous trips to Beaches Resorts, the greatest memories I have are of the people who make the resort what it is. From the wait staff to the gardeners, there isn’t a person on site who hasn’t tried to make our stays unforgettable or slain us with their absolute kindness. The people are in fact what take Beaches Resorts all inclusive vacations to a whole other level.
What strikes me most about the staff at Beaches Resorts both in Turks and Caicos and Ochos Rios is that the people who are worthy of mention are not necessarily who you would imagine.
As I prep to return this week, I wanted to share some examples of incredible people we have encountered.
The Cleaning Staff
Throughout three different Beaches Resorts all inclusive vacations, I have yet to encounter a disgruntle cleaning person. Although our room is often a mess and in some past incidents, I have needed a lot of extra linen, the people who have helped us were always rays of sunshine. It’s wonderful to not stress about anything and know that you will return to a pristine room that is perfectly cared for just like you.
A memorable moment occurred during our last visit when Charlie, who was 3, picked a flower to give to me. A gardener called her over immediately and I thought he would discipline her for picking the flower off the bush as I often do. Instead, he took her hand and led her to a private section of the garden which had at least 5 different types of flowers. He patiently waited as she picked her favourite and then assembled a bouquet for her and wished her a great day.
The Dancing Train Conductor
My go-to on our last visit late in the day, when the kids were exhausted, was to take a ride on the train that tours the Beaches Resorts property. One day the kids were particularly tired and I feared a major meltdown from both kids was about to ensue. Instead, the conductor of the tiny train, Onica, made sure that they had the time of their lives. She spoke to each of them as they got on the train and throughout the ride never forgot their names. As we were pulling into a stop, Will began dancing to one of his favourite songs and she immediately noticed, stopped the train and asked him if he would like to start a dance party. She then let every child out of the train and led them in an incredible dance routine making sure even the youngest guests knew the moves.
Beaches Resorts All Inclusive Vacations
Although these situations deserve a write-up, there are so many more moments at Beaches Resorts that make you realize that you and your children are welcome and cared about. Each time I think of the Beaches Ochos Rios, I can’t help but miss the incredible lifeguards there that made our vacation what it was. From engaging the kids in activities and conversations to helping them get over their fears of water slides, I still wish I could properly thank the young men who take especially good care of us long before I was writing a blog.
Across the company, the wait staff and bartenders we have encountered have also been fantastic. I’ve never been made to feel like my food substitutions or Charlie’s allergies were annoying or that my children had made too big of a mess. I have always found a helping hand when I needed someone to help me watch one child while the other needed something. This is especially remarkable seeing you are not allowed to tip on Beaches Resorts all inclusive vacations.
If you are considering a Beaches Resorts all inclusive vacation, I can tell you that years from now you may not remember their names but you will remember the people who made your children smile.
