It was 5 am, I felt my dad’s hand on my forehead saying “WAKE UP! WAKE UP!”. Quickly we got ready and as usual we sat down on the couches and tried to make sure we took everything, especially passports. It’s our family tradition! We finally sat in the car and were on our way to the airport. We were going to New Jersey so it took a while to get to the airport. When we arrived my mom said “uhh I need some coffee”. So while my mom was taking her time getting the coffee it was time for us to board the plane. My dad panicked a little because my mom was no where in sight, but he wasn’t surprised. We were the last ones to board the plane, but at least we did not miss our flight. I sat with my dad and my sister sat with my mother. We waited a while because there was another plane in front of us. We waited about 20 minutes and it felt like it took hours. Finally we took off!! My mom does not “trust” airplane food, so she made us hard boiled egg sandwiches. The aroma on the plane was not great because the hardboiled eggs stunk the plane. My dad, as usual, asked my mom if the bread is whole wheat and if there is butter inside. It’s a short flight to Turks and Caicos, 2.5 hours I believe. We finally arrived! We are officially in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos. The airport is tiny and we walked down the stairs from the plane. It’s kind of cool. We got our luggage and there was a woman from our resort, Seven Stars greeting us. She directed us to our rental car. When we arrived at the hotel my dad checked us in and then a waiter came and gave us smoothies that were very tasty. I was so impatient I went to the bathroom and changed into my bathing suit and dove into the pool. The water was so refreshing. It was sunny and warm, about 80 degrees. Ahhhh, I was really looking forward to this vacation. The pool is enormous and is made of salt water. It wasn’t packed and I felt like the pool was all mine. After the pool we went to the hotel room. The room was exactly the way it was last year, except they switched everything to the opposite side. There were 2 white couches and a chair. There was a dining room, a huge balcony, a kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom with a private bathroom, and two beds in the living room. We had remote control blinds. The room was big, bright, and clean. We had an ocean view and it was amazing.
We stayed in Seven Stars resort for 10 days. Over all the resort was amazing!! There were always people cleaning and making sure guests were happy. I noticed that when ever a guest was walking, the worker always stopped and let them go. Every person who worked in the resort always smiled and said hello. At the pool every hour there was a waiter giving out free fruit kebabs and sorbet. When my parents went shopping me and my sister went to the kids club for about an hour. They had a Wii an x-box and there were two ladies that gave out ice cream and would basically do whatever you say. My sister loved the kids club. I think its more for little kids, my sister was 7 at the time so it was perfect for her.
Seven Stars includes breakfast. When we started going to the resort 4 years ago, they only served muffins and fruits. Now they started serving eggs, bacon, lox, bagels, fruits and much more. The breakfast there is delicious and it’s in a restaurant near the pool. There is a really good restaurant in the resort called Seven and Its very fancy. My mom loved the duck breast and the goat cheese salad. I recommend lobster ravioli. Once a week they also have a beach BBQ. It was buffet style and they offered many types of food from seafood to meat. My favorite was the ribs with mashed potatoes. There was also lots of dessert. After the BBQ there was a Bon fire. They threw huge pieces of wood and lit it up. At the hotel everyday at 9 pm there was music so while we were getting ready to go to sleep we heard the really nice and tropical music.
The best part of the vacation was celebrating my 10th birthday. I chose Caicos café, my favorite restaurant on the island. It was awesome!
I highly recommend Seven Stars and the restaurants on the island are great.
When I was 7 years old, I decided to write restaurants reviews in Turks and Caicos and my dad posted it on Trip advisor. I’m including the link here. My mom laughs every time she reads it. Enjoy!
