There are just a pair of all-inclusive resorts in the Turks & Caicos
islands, but they are run by two of the biggest resort companies in the Caribbean: Club Med and Beaches.
Club Med Turkoise
Located on Grace Bay Beach on Providenciales -- the 2012 About.com Readers Choice Award winner for Best Beach in the Caribbean
-- the Club Med Turkoise
is an adults-only all-inclusive with 290 brightly decorated garden and oceanfront rooms, buffet and fine dining restaurants, and inclusive activities from water sports to circus classes where you can learn the trapeze and trampoline. One unique "extra" is a kiteboarding academy.

The Pirates Island Waterpark is a major highlight of this 453-room family friendly all-inclusive
, which also has an Xbox gaming center, two kiddie pools, kids' club, and a swim-up soda bar. Adults will appreciate the nine restaurants (including fine dining, southwestern cuisine, asian, seafood, Italian, a French bistro, and a 50s-style diner). The resort is located on a 12-mile-long beach, and accommodations include the exclusive French Village, a resort-within-a-resort with Parisian architecture, formal gardens, bistros, and a private pool. In 2013, Beaches purchased the neighboring Verandah resort (previously the island's third all-inclusive resort) and converted its studios, suites, and beach cottages into the Key West Luxury Village.
