COMO Parrot Cay5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I recently celebrated my birthday at Parrot Cay, the resort is as beautiful as the service we received. The best birthday ever!!! Quiet, secluded, delicious cuisine, cozy romantic rooms,etc. I think the best part was the comfort and relaxation as a result of the best in house services I've ever received. It's like a slice of heaven on earth.
We spent four days at Parrot Cay in May and had a wonderful time! The island is beautiful and the beach is as picturesque as it gets – long white sand beach and turquoise water. We were greeted with ginger tea, pineapple cake and cold water upon arrive at the hotel’s marina transfer spot. The hotel has a very nice relaxed, island vibe with very well maintained grounds. The rooms are simple and understated, but very comfortable and pleasant. The food (while very expensive!) was great, as were the drinks. The breakfast menu and buffet were a highlight. It was our first time visiting Turks and Caicos, and we stayed four days on Grace Bay before arriving at Parrot Cay. In retrospect, we would have come straight to Parrot Cay!
We have been going to Parrot Cay almost every year since 2005. We keep trying other resorts additionally, but keep returning there and are never disappointed. Aside from its incredible natural beauty, it is really the most relaxing place on Earth. We always see at least one celebrity staying there at the same time we are there. Since we live in LA, this isn't a big deal to us, but what is really special is that we feel that Parrot Cay treats us just as incredibly as the do the celebrity. What is interesting is how they improve the place every year. We always go for at least 7 nights and almost always extend our time once we are there, since we don't want to leave. I always participate in the exercise and lifestyle classes, and we book multiple treatments in the spa. This year, the new Yoga instructor, Claudia, and the new Pilates instructor, Melinda were tremendous additions to their incredible staff. Dr. Parth is the new Ayurvedic Doctor, whom I had a wonderful consultation with. As a surgeon, I really didn't have any experience or confidence in this type of medicine before our trips to Parrot Cay, but now I really love my ayurvedic treatments and have tremendous respect for Dr. Parth. I also want to complement our old friends Shirley, Gusta, Made, and Jimmy Lee for making us feel like part of their family and wanting to return to this incredible resort every year.
COMO Parrot Cay feels like visiting an old rich uncle at some large colonial residence in a far of plantation somewhere between Asia and The Caribbean maybe in the 20's. There is an amazing feeling about this place that the lack of resent upgrades can't deny. Firstly the privacy (especially in off season), secondly the waste amount of space - you can walk the stretches of the beach without meeting anyone, refer to privacy. Its relaxed, this is obviously something to be enjoyed on a beach vacation, also the sand is powdery, the sea is turquoise, everywhere you look there is serene beauty and thirdly the staff are amazing, not everything is perfect but the willingness to accommodate, the ability to make you feel at ease and at home is truly astounding. Tony the pool and beach manager for one, secondly Martin at their new beach bar was so much fun to hang out with as well. I would come back to meet up with these to gentlemen alone. I loved the spa and the surprisingly beautiful view form the spa lobby so different then that of the beach, i loved the trail to walk or bike and the yoga classes although to much wine on the beach during the day sabotaged much of my planned afternoon activity. My first time in The Caribbean and COMO was a blind shot but now highly recommened and I'd like to go back.
Totally worth visiting. Upon arrival to the airport of Providenciales, your chauffeur from COMO Hotel Parrot Cay will be waiting for you and drive you to the dock where you will be checked-in to the hotel and they will welcome you with sweet ginger tea and some coconut muffins. Then, you will be escorted to the boat for a 30 minute navigation to Parrot Cay. Already checked-in, you will receive your room keys when you arrive and you are all set. The location is superb, the beach stunning with clear blue waters and very thin white sand. I totally recommend to stay in the beach villas with their own private pools and direct access to the beach. Although the hotel was fully booked, it did not seem like it was at all, there is a lot of space and the service is excellent. The Spa food and normal food was very good, my favourite meal at the hotel was breakfast, lots of variety, healthy, and great service. The main pool of the hotel is stunning with direct views to the beach. Wifi connection was very fast in all areas of the hotel. COMO Shambala spa massage is a must!!! Totally recommend to visit COMO Hotel Parrot Cay!
We traveled to COMO in April 2017 to celebrate our 3 year anniversary and to recharge from our stressful jobs. We had THE absolute best time (in fact, I have already started considering a return trip in July). From the moment we were greeted in the airport, it was total relaxation. After a quick (20 min) ride to the marina, we took a boat ride over to Parrot Cay. During the boat ride, we noticed a couple of dolphins playing in the turquoise waters near our route, so our captain stopped the boat so we could take a better look! As soon as we arrived to the island, we were greeted and whisked away to our room in a buggy. During the ride, we were given a quick overview of the grounds and main points of interest (gym, spa, bike pickup point, the restaurants, and most importantly -- the way to the beach). Once we got to our room, we planned on hitting the beach immediately, but we were taken aback by a super pleasant surprise -- bottle of wine, to help jumpstart our anniversary celebration! We stayed for 4 days, and we did something different each day -- biking and jogging through the plantation trail, playing tennis, having a spa day, kayaking/paddleboarding on the beach -- we never felt bored or at a loss for our next activity. All in all, there is really nothing I would change. - The location is amazing, our garden-view room (201) had everything we could have wanted. The balcony in the room was HUGE (fit a big day-bed and a table with chairs), and had an amazing view, so it was a perfect private place to to chill out and read a book/listen to music. - The food was delicious (I am now obsessed with conch fritters), and the portions are quite generous, and there are a lot of options to choose from. - The beach is just beyond words - the best beach and the bluest water I've ever seen. At it's busiest, there were probably ~40 people total on a beach, and it never felt crowded. - The service and staff are great -- the nicest, friendliest people, who really make you feel at home in the hotel and on the island. My only regret is that we didn't get to meet Dr. Parth until our last day (he lead the yoga and meditation class, which was the perfect way to wind down the trip), but I'll definitely schedule a consultation with him once we return. Don't hesitate about coming here, it's really a magical place to relax and get away from it all.
I highly recommend this hotel, particularly the service is excellent for the Caribbean. The staff are mainly from Bali and I can not say enough positively. The rooms are good but the place does need upgrading, which I understand will happen this year. There is one drawback, the extras are incredibly expensive, off the scale. A simple lunch, no alcohol for two will cost around $150. I do expect these resorts to be expensive but this is off the scale. If you are prepared for the cost, it is lovely. Finally, if the management is reading this, you need to improve your sheets and mattresses
We traveled in April 2017 and booked two beach houses, each with one BR, but were upgraded to two beach houses each with 2 BR...and a butler! (Butlers come only with 2BR plus beach houses.) The facilities themselves were outstanding, with a view to creating the perfect balance between luxury (all needs met and then some) and an unpretentious laid-back vibe. The beach houses are the height of privacy, with dedicated pools, chairs and living areas, nicely insulated from surrounding properties (no wonder that celebs favor this place). The bar was great and the restaurants, while somewhat spotty, were remarkable considering that this private island, in an underpopulated archipelago, is not exactly the nexus of civilization. The butlers were unexpected. They are not only at your beck and call, they also serve as your waiters for all meals and your advance team/ombudsmen as needed (which is infrequent). The trick is to be unabashed about using them. Ours (a Hindu from Indonesia) not only met our every need but anticipated many; he even took our 12-year-old fishing one day, which was one of the high points of her trip. It's expensive....very expensive... but brings a level of luxury which is rarely matched elsewhere.
Parrot Cay is THE perfect vacation! Do not miss the spa and the amazing pilates class from Kira Lamb. Breakfast is included and the quality is outstanding. Food in general is better than in most hotels that you will find in the Caribbean. However, it is pricey. The beach is picture perfect and everything is organized really well. Lots of Europeans in the hotel and very cozy atmosphere. Would always go again and keep on recommending it to everybody who is interested in the perfect beach getaway. Dislike: - Diving is bad and very, very, very expensive (about 500 USD for 2 tanks). Not worth it and would recommend to change the provider or adjust prices. - Cocktails at the bar were not really good. Recommend to order beer or wine.
We booked last minute without even having the chance to research the resort . We only found out that we will be going to a semi remote private island by boat when we were being picked up at the airport :)))). Initially i sort of panicked , i don't really like being in a totally remote place especially when we have the kids with us . It turned out to be a godsend as we all needed 5 days of pure relaxation . We booked the 2 bedroom beach villa with pool . It's very spacious with a very well equipped kitchen and above all we got assigned a butler , the infamous Mrs.Zovia who gets things done tirelessly all day and night . The villa has definitely seen much better days , with very little work they can really make it look up to date and at $6k/ night i doubt they lack the funds to do so . The bedrooms and living room are adequate but the AC , bathrooms , kitchen and pool & deck could use serious sprucing up . There's nothing wrong with them but when competing with a Aman resort they sure have a tough adversary to live up to . Overall it feels just like home with good internet , tv with Netflix ( we discovered that literally the last night ) . The only thing missing is a washer and dryer but surprisingly laundry service is very reasonably priced . The resort has 2 restaurants , 1 Asian by the pool which is the popular one and 1 Italian in the main building which lacks total character and charm . The food is very good at both with the exception of BBQ night which was a total disaster . Room service menu is quite good also . The resort is very quiet with little to do , some non motorized beach activity and a superb gym . I didn't try The tennis courts but they didn't seem in great shape . The hotel provides bicycles to young and old which is a nice touch . We spent a lovely time not doing much except enjoy their gorgeous beach for 3 days and the serenity of our private pool . The last couple of days we went snorkeling , fishing and jet skiing . The few things i didn't enjoy is the lack of activities on the private island . Anything we wanted to do we either had to take a boat to another island or they'd bring the boat/jet ski at a very high price to the hotel . We chose the latter . A word of advice , bring everything you need with you . The hotel boutique has few incidentals but no great choice so make sure you pack very well . We had a great time . 5 days are just enough but the place really grows on you and we were all sad to leave . 1 more thing , their drinking water is undrinkable so we were always drinking the Evian bottles they left in the fridge . There are a number of villas owned by celebrities on the island , names like Bruce Willis , Donna Karan , Keith Richards .... I was surprised at the real estate prices though , a 3 bedroom villa up for sale for $10m . The while country is a very expensive destination , not for the faint hearted . We are talking Monaco prices but he beach is magnificent . Enjoy to the max if you make it .
