    Had a great time early November 2022. Pay no mind to the complaints about bugs - the bugs are OUTSIDE, not inside. Just make sure to keep the doors and windows closed and don't go outside after dark because that's when the bugs really come out. The wifi and A/C worked great and the bed was very comfy. Nice full kitchen and bath + sitting areas. Steps away from the restaurant. Very nice and helpful people all over the island.

    The location is incredible and everyone going to T&C should go to Dragon Cay! We did the hike right off the resort (incredible - saw flamingoes and gorgeous cliffs and swam in beautiful beaches), went to the caves (expensive tour and the guide isn't really worth the money, but the caves are worth seeing), spent time on the idyllic bambarra beach, kayaked right off the causeway through mangroves and saw a turtle, flamingoes, an osprey and uninhabited sandbars/islands, and explored the many cays on site.We had to, however, do everything and arrange everything ourselves. There was no service to speak of: no check in, no tour, no housekeeping (we swept the sand off our porch daily and used 1 kitchen towel for an entire week of dishes), manager was on site limited times (that were unpredictable) and was not reliable. It was like pulling teeth to get kayaks (that are advertised as part of the room rate) and I almost gave up. Apparently there is a bunch of new staff - the people from a different company that ended up helping with the kayaks said they didn't recognize basically anyone - so hopefully this problem will get fixed as they get trained. They did negotiate a (very small) discount for us since we had basically no service. Since we paid the "high season" price, we expected there to be more staff, but the people mentioned in other reviews (Marilyn, Evelyn) were not there. I will say that transport to and from Middle Caicos was arranged by Dragon Cay and went off without a hitch, but we were fairly worried about it before arriving since we didn't get any confirmation and emails back prior to arriving.The accommodations themselves are fine. Advertised as a 3 star, and that's basically what you get. The bathrooms aren't pictured online because they're not very nice, but they're fine. Ours, notably, was potentially not cleaned before we arrived - previous tenants flip flops were still in the shower. The rest of the house is as pictured and quite nice. We stayed in the Dragon hut and we could see the ocean from the porch. The windows don't open (because they're very old) but the a/c works well and the sliding door to the porch opened and that was enough for us. Internet worked well and netflix was on the tv for the dark, quiet nights. We cooked mostly for ourselves (grocery shopped in Provo, but North Caicos has most of what you'd need) and made our own drinks. The restaurants on North and Middle are very expensive for pretty medium quality food and drinks.Edit: The response says we were given a 15% discount, which is what we requested, but were given 10% (for full disclosure)

    Very nice location. Villas were comfortable and clean. We stayed in Sunset.BEACH - The beach was a couple minute walk. Water was fabolous. They did have patches of grass that were easily avoided and it did not bother us at all.BUGS - We were only there for 4 days and each day the wind was 15 to 25 mph, and consequently we did not have any insect issues. The villa was equiped with screens everywhere, so I have to assume the flies/mosquitos must come out at some point.SHOPPING SERVICE - this was convenient but had a little sticker a shock. I will post the receipt.TRANSPORTATION - we had the TCI transport service and while the cars were clean and we got where we needed to go, they had to be summoned when we got there. The dispatcher seemed to have 100 things going on. I was starting to believe he forgot us but the transport showed up.

    Where do I begin? I was there working on a shoot for Premiere Bride. The most beautiful place to get away from it all. The water is so clear that you can see for miles underwater. The cliffs and caves are amazing. It is the most remote and undeveloped of the Turks and Caicos islands. I ordered conch and the chef on site literally waded into the water on the beach to his knees and pulled it out of the ocean. Best conch fritters ever. Make sure you bring mosquito repellent . The bungalows are beautiful light and airy. The staff really made me feel like I was at my home in Paradise. I would' live and die there if I could. The most Spectacular sunrises & sunsets have ever seen.

    We just returned from our time on Dragon Cay and oh, how I miss it already! If you are looking for absolute beauty and peace, look no further. We loved swimming out to Dragon Cay, going on walks to the caves, and swimming in Mudjin Harbor. Marilyn, the owner, and her entire team is incredibly helpful and goes above and beyond what most small businesses can do for individual guests. Our family stayed in the Soltice Villa, and while it has WiFi and TV, even our teenage son did not ask to use either until the sun went down (and dinner was made) since we were having such a wonderful time being in nature as a family. Just a reminder, as their website states, this is an amazing place unless you want a 'Provo-tourist experience'. We ate at the restaurant once (delicious), brought our own food to cook for the rest of our meals, and loved dining with no other sound but the ocean waves. But being self-sufficient is a necessity, especially if you are there over a weekend/Sunday as North and Middle Caicos basically shut down from Saturday at 3pm until Monday (we loved that!).
