TripAdvisor announced the winners of its 2014 Travelers’ Choice Islands. The annual awards recognize the islands that have been highly rated from travelers around the globe. Providenciales, Turks & Caicos – home to the top-rated The Sands at Grace Bay resort – was named the #1 Island in the Caribbean and the #2 Island in the World.
Travelers’ Choice winners are determined based on the quality and quantity of the most highly-rated hotels, restaurants, and attractions listed for each island on TripAdvisor gathered during a 12-month period.
The Sands at Grace Bay located on Providenciales’ Grace Bay Beach, received another “Certificate of Excellence” award from TripAdvisor in 2013 for consistently achieving outstanding guest reviews. The accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is only given to approximately 10 percent of accommodations listed on TripAdvisor. To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor.
