We have just spent a week at this boutique hotel and would highly recommend it. There are no frills. The room was clean and serviced every day. Our upstairs room had a spacious balcony with ocean views. The staff were very polite and helpful. With the amazing beach is a step away from the hotel, what more do you need!
We enjoy this smaller hotel rather than larger resorts. Staff is extremely friendly. Restaurant on site is so convenient and the food is great. Nothing fancy, yet rooms are always clean. Steps to beach. Pool is small, yet we spend our days on the beach and this is not a concern for us. One of our favorite places to vacation.
In July I stayed here as party of a wedding group. When I lived in Turks this was my hotel of choice as it right on the beach, inexpensive and the rooms although inexpensive are normally well maintained and food in the restaurant is good especially the breakfast. This time around there was one issue after the other. I booked an ocean view room which was anything but. When I asked about this I was told that if I go out on the balcony and lean over I can see the beach. The a/c did not work very well and I went to make a cup of coffee in the morning and the cups were unwashed from the previous occupant. Early one morning in the bathroom there were 2 huge cockroaches. I went to use the pool and fell off the ladder injuring my knee because the ladder was not properly bolted down. To end it all on my day of departure i left my room for not even 10 minutes realizing I left my wallet on the dresser. I came back to see 2 maids in front of my room who at first acted like they did not understand english. Only after the owner called the police did the housekeeper start to speak english to the owner. There is know doubt in my mind that the housekeepers took my wallet. I really loved this place in the past but my overall experience this time has left a bad taste in my mouth and not willing to reccommend this to hotel to any of my friends visiting Turks as I have done in the past. Spend the extra money where the hotel staff will be more secure about their reputation and will have the type of staff that will reflect it.
My partner and I booked a trip to Turks and Caicos for our birthday month celebration. Beach bums we are, but resort people we are not so I researched all the options in the area and came across Sibonne. It was a boutique hotel lined up with the rest of the resorts on Grace Bay Beach. We loved it. Marie was available to answer all of our questions and she went above and beyond to cater to my request for my partner's birthday. Very quaint and well kept. No frills and no attitude. The experience was great and the price per night was right up my alley. We went for the beach and that's where we spent most of our time. We didn't want anything else and finding Sibonne was perfect. If you're into luxury resort style rooms and amenities, that you won't get from Sibbone, but if not, this is your place!
Although this hotel was not as big and grand as surrounding ones - it was located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world- smack in the middle -- Marie was above and beyond helpful - if you stay here try to stay in the second-floor beach hut whit the screened in porch overlooking the beach and the pool - it has a very big bedroom living room and full kitchen with the pots pans knifes forks everything you need - and also has a porch adjacent to the screened in porch which is wide open - I wouldn't recommend going there in August it was extremely hot - my family and I have been to many Caribbean island's and this is by far the most beautiful water and sand - they're pretty much does nothing to do outside the Hotel -- there is very little shopping and an extremely expensive supermarket - because everything is imported on the island - there is a restaurant called bistro Which is right on the beach but unfortunately no AC - if you are a beach bum and like the late around on the beach or - by the very small pool this is the place for you --we tried getting a day pass at beaches resort which was next-door and they wanted $525 a person per day ( ridiculous ). Overall this is the most reasonable place you can stay by far every other resort we looked at was double or triple even more
Just got back from a week at this hotel. I really like how close it was to get to the beach (steps away) compared to staying at other places. The hotel is an older hotel but it was fine. The air conditioning worked terrific in our room - so that was a plus for us. We stayed on the first floor in room 108. The walk to the store & restaurants takes about 10-15 minutes. You just walk down the beach to the right & cut through the Sands Resort & then go left down the road. We never had an issue getting a beach chair or umbrella - always plenty. I loved this section of the beach because it was not crowded like other parts in front of the big resorts. The pool was pretty much empty most of the time We did eat 3 times at the Bay Bistro Restaurant which was on site, the food was good. It would be a plus if they would have microwaves in the rooms & some pamphlets in the lobby with different places to go. I would definitely stay here again though but if you are looking for a fancy hotel this would not be for you. It is just a quiet, small beach hotel.
We chose to stay here on vacation by chance, but were no disappointed. This small boutique hotel was a quite spot with a lovely beachfront and in-needed swimming pool. The tropical garden in the middle of the property was lovely to wake up to and have breakfast on the porch of our room. Staff was quite friendly, though showed little knowledge of the area when asked for suggestions for placed to snorkel or eat. We were told by a local that this was the oldest hotel on the island. The rooms are slightly dated but comfortable.
I stayed at Sibonne hotel this past week. It was my first time staying there and will certainly be my last. I will definitely not recommend it to anyone. In one week I was moved to 3 rooms...hiw ridiculous is that? I got there on Monday night by Tuesday morning the front desk staff called my room to tell me check out time is 11am I was so surprised since we had reserved the room for 6 nights. About 10 mins later this old white lady came rapping on my room door when I opened it the pathetic look on her face she said 11am is check out time and it's 10 mins past I told her we were not checking out she asked me how long we were staying I told her 6 nights. She goes 6 night! (As if my money is not good enough and she wanted me out). Well she went away and the following day she told my friend that she had repeat guest coming who requested the room we were in so we packed our bags and moved out, she moved us into another room. We stayed in the 2nd room for 2 nights and lo and behold we were told again that they have another repeat guest who requested to stay in our 2nd room. They moved us into our 3rd room where we stayed our final 2 nights. This time we were out and about when we got a call from the hotel requesting our room key of which we had in our possession they said they need the key because they only have 1 key per room. We were surprised that when we returned to the hotel they literally moved our bags along with stuff that we had in the refrigerator out to our 3rd room. The room maids all appeared scared of the manager (old lady) who came across as prejudice to me (I am a black woman). $183.00 per night for the room is too much. They only worth $45.00 the rooms are not nice at all. I saw cobwebs hanging from the ceiling mould on the ceiling and in the shower still. To sum it all up, it was a miserable week at Sibonne. Management knows nothing about hospitality or tourism. It's sad!!!!!
We stayed 5 nights at The Sibonne Beach Hotel, a 30 room boutique hotel right on Grace Bay. I highly recommend staying in the Beach Apartment - which was a free standing two story building facing the water and adjacent to the pool and restaurant. The whole second floor is a private apartment available as one of the lodging choices. It has a bedroom with a King bed and an en suite bath. It also has a small living area with couch, cocktail table, chair and TV. A small dining area has a table & 4 chairs. There is also a small full kitchen with everything you'd find at home except maybe a dishwasher. There are two outdoor porches overlooking the ocean. One screened in w a table and chairs and one patio with two lounge chairs, two side tables and an umbrella table with chairs. Sibonne features a nice, quiet beach with maybe 8 palaypas and 10 umbrellas with two loungers and a side table under each. No vendors during our stay. A public park, parking, and beach access are located directly next to the hotel and some locals obviously borrowed some chairs and umbrellas for their use but everyone (adults & children) were well dressed and mannered on their beach break. The hotel staff departs at 10 PM when reception closes. The restaurant stays staffed for about another hour. A security guard makes rounds at night - checking the grounds and beach - and locking the beach access door between 10 & 10:30. Some (repeatedly shining flashlight over immediate beach and all around in empty restaurant) were more vigilant than others but overall it felt safe. Close to shopping (Main shopping street was a 20 minute walk from the hotel) and dining (Walk to options in almost all resorts and drive to Turtle Bay Marina or other TA recommended restaurants takes 10 minutes). It felt perfectly safe going out for exercise run around the streets immediately surrounding this hotel. No riff raff of any sort on the beach or grounds. This is not an uber fancy hotel but it's extremely clean and well maintained considering it is the first to grace Grace Bay. Some reviews complain about the reception at reception, but while they were not exuberantly friendly, they were helpful and efficient. The landscaping and lush foliage on the grounds with paved pathways to each room made it picturesque. It was perfect for us as we like the cozy feel of a smaller property where you see familiar faces in the restaurant or on the beach. Would highly recommend to anyone and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else if we ever have the good fortune to come back.
Loved this hotel that I stayed at. I had one of the partial ocean view rooms and every single night was just amazing with views. The food at the restaurant was very good and the staff was always smiling and helpful. I completely recommend this hotel for anyone who wants quietness yet still accessible to the main strip.
