I just spent 4 days at the Alexandra Resort in Providenciales.
The staff was very friendly and the experience was exceptional. I like to mention few persons that were so helpful. Jessica in the dinning room, Vivian in the Pool and Monica at the front Desk.
I will definitely return.
So after deciding not to file a law suit, I can go ahead and post this review. Now we all now the only people who post reviews are those who are unhappy or those who are overwhelming in love. This is not the latter. Unfortunately, this review is being posted due to the serious safety issues at the resort. We went as a group of 5 people and the first night we were there, one older couple (in their 60's) was walking around the property when they were attacked. They ended up being mugged and severely injured. I still have nightmares about seeing them the next day even covered in blood with broken bones. Now granted, there are criminals everywhere. However, this happened 50 feet in front of this 'resort's security office'... and not one of the 'guards' noticed or came over to them. The response we received from the hotel's head of security, "Well he was probably an addict just looking for cash"- I wish to God that wasn't a direct quote but alas it is. The hotel staff and management was so unresponsive and uncaring it ruined a $20,000 vacation. The couple tried to salvage the trip but when you've got broken bones and blood stains in your clothes, that makes it a little difficult. Not to mention, the resort itself... not to great! Definitely 3 star... and that's not taking into consideration the brutal attack ON their property. The rooms were pretty outdated, the staff wasn't really too friendly even when we first arrived, and there are not a lot of amenities on the property. But good news, the resort is nestled between some other ones that were pretty nice when I walked over the them (those are wear we had to spend most of our time) and its not too shocking to me that the other resorts were all so very busy and Alexandra Resort was pretty dead- even during Christmas week. Please, just save yourselves the trouble and stay somewhere else.
