    Just returned from a week at the Alexandra Hotel in Providenciales for a 25th wedding anniversary celebration. We picked this hotel randomly. It sounded like it had a great beach (which it did) and most of the reviews were positive. And everything was great. The greeting, the trip/location from the airport, the free bikes, the free kayaks, paddleboards, snorkeling equipment, the service, the rooms were clean and well equipped (no need to overpack, washer and dryer in unit!). But if we look past ourselves, which my husband and I did, we found something extraordinary about The Alexandra Resort: Our 2nd day on the island we noticed the overwhelming amount of stray dogs. Islanders call these dogs "potcake dogs." Since my husband and I are dog lovers, it became quite depressing driving around "paradise" seeing the suffering dogs. I felt an enormous amount of guilt spending thousands of dollars on a vacation when these dogs have nothing and suffer not only from hunger and God knows what diseases but thirst as well. They are often hit by cars and left for dead (if the impact didn't finish them off). We made a visit to the potcake center in Ports of Call and spoke with the director and were just dismayed at how many strays they estimate there are. It is a serious problem and it doesn't appear that there are any laws in place to stop the breeding and disease amongst these potcake dogs. We, of course, made a donation as well as spent much of our time driving around (in both a car and on bike) feeding and watering these little creatures. The turn around moment for us (what lifted us from our depression) was when the director told us about a program they are putting together. They have dozens of veterinarians and technicians coming from the states in October and they will be spaying and neutering as many dogs as they can trap and release. These vets and techs are doing this for free. When asked where the vets will be staying? We were told the Alexandra Resort! They are providing the lodging! We were so impressed! It validated that we, most definitely, made the right choice with our accomodations. I would gladly stay here again, not just because it's a wonderful resort, but because it's run by wonderful people who think past themselves. Kudos to you Alexandra Resort, your owners, your staff and to the wonderful people at the Potcake Center. You are all awesome people to give of yourselves so unselfishly. We will gladly recommend this hotel....Again, not just because of their charity but because of their great accomodations and service. By the way, when you go, you'll surely meet Darren. He's a wealth of knowledge and goes above and beyond to assist all guests. I hate to point out just Darren because I didn't meet a single employee (and there are MANY, no lack of employees to cater to your every whim) that didn't go above and beyond. And they're ALWAYS smiling! It certainly turned out to be a better trip than we thought it would after that 2nd day there and we both agree, we were so glad to spend our 25th anniversary celebrating, both at the Alexandra, and serving these little helpless creatures. When you go, take the shuttle to the grocery store (@4:30PM I believe) and don't forget to pick up a bag of dog food or treats. The prices at the hotel, the stores and the restaurants are understandable. It IS an island after all and everything has an import tax. What the Alexandra does is offer you A) A mini kitchen with dishes, microwave, sink and fridge to offset that expense, B) a ride to the grocery store to get groceries (which are...surprise!...expensive) and C) enough of a variety at the restaurant on site (Mango Reef) that you never have to eat the same thing twice! I'm missing the french toast already. And the great beach that you never have to worry about finding a chair at!

    Overall a great place to stay. The restaurant wasn't too bad. The Coco Bistro on the island was hands down the best restaurant on the island, which is a cab away from the Alexandra. They have paddleboards for you to use, there is however only 2 of them for the entire resort. The staff was nice and helpful. The island is expensive, so go to the market when you're there to stock up on groceries.

    The hotel was well kept and very clean. Our room was exactly as it appeared on the website. The lack of a "gift and sundries shop" made it a little difficult. Getting things like water, sunscreen, personal items required a shuttle trip to the grocery store or walking to another hotel. Otherwise, this was a great hotel and vacation spot.

  • Nice quiet resort with great staff on beautiful island
