WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Caribbean as it used to be – 5 star (March 2022)
Can’t say enough and I haven’t ever left a review before. Mudjin and Bambara beaches were essentially private, and at the height of the season. Staff at Dragon Cay were great; Evelyn and Robbins provided whatever we needed. Robbins delivered complimentary bikes, but not your typical cheap and worn out cruisers. These were Specialized carbon fiber fat tire bicycles that were bike shop rental quality. We were also provided great foldable beach chairs. We stayed five nights, longer than we had planned. Evelyn then set up super convenient Covid testing as well for us to leave. To get this kind of peaceful experience it is either much more expensive or much more inconvenient to get there; truly unique to get so far away from a huge tourist spot with such a short ferry. Spoke to several people who had come for the day, and each said the same thing, that they wished they had known about this place, as it wouldn’t have just been a day trip.
Stunning views! – 5 star (March 2022)
We stayed in Sunset Cottage. It was clean, quaint, and quiet. The hiking around the property is beautiful. Mudjin Harbor is beautiful and the little cafe had a great deck and good food. They stayed open late on the Sunday we arrived so that we could get an early dinner.
Both North and Middle Caicos are very remote, so it is important to come prepared with provisions. The Cottage has everything you need to cook with (utensils, pans etc...) but small stores on the islands are limited.
Still one of the most peaceful places we have stayed.
Relaxing and Beautiful – 5 star (March 2022)
We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at this beautiful resort. If you are looking for lots of activities and people, this is not the place to come. If you are looking for a beautiful place to relax and unwind, this is your place.
The beach is great and the sunset view is spectacular. We were also impressed with the "extras" that Dragon Cay provides. For example, our room had a local cell phone provided for us to use...so we didn't have to use our own phones (that don't have international calling). There was also a netflix account set up for our room - great for watching a movie at night. When we checked in, drinking water was provided for us as well - no need to worry about bringing water.
We used the resort's fat tire bikes and kayaks - they are in great condition and someone there to bring them to you and help, for example, loading the kayaks on our vehicle. There is no onsite COVID testing, but they did make all the arrangements for a test and told us where we needed to be. If we ever needed anything, we just had to call or find someone...they were always willing to help!
All in all, it was an amazing place. Highly recommend. We stayed in the Sunset Villa...it is the BEST place (in our opinion). You can sit in the room and look out and not see anything else except the ocean and open land. Amazing!
A Dream – 5 star (11/1/21)
My husband and I stayed at Sunrise cottage. All around it was the most beautiful experience I have ever had. The cottage is great, but what you're paying for is the beautiful views, service, activities, privacy and pure PEACE. We went down to the beach a few times and were the only ones there. I told my husband multiple times that I felt like I was in a dream, especially while in the water and laying on the beach by ourselves. The food and drinks at the restaurant on site were delicious and generous. If you're fortunate enough to stay a few days and get to know the restaurant staff, you'll find a few of them are related which makes for a cool familial dynamic.
If asked which resort to stay at in the Turks with the best beaches imaginable, Dragon Cay will always be my first choice.
Find serenity at Dragon Cay Resort – 5 star (7/26/21)
We stayed at the Sunrise cottage and had the most amazing time! The setting is spectacular, the studio cottage was clean and well equipped. They even provided us with beach chairs. And the views just can’t be beat. It was remote and I felt a million miles away, but all my creature comforts were taken care of. The kitchen had everything we needed. You do need to provide your own food, the cafe is only open from 11am - 3pm! So you have to be ready to make your own breakfast and dinner. Enjoying coffee on my deck and watching the sunrise over the ocean was definitely a highlight of our trip.
The beauty of this place, it that there is nothing to do - explore the beach, read a book, and relax in this stunning location. An experience I won’t soon forget.
Can't wait to go back – 5 star (6/30/21)
It was amazing from beginning to end. The lovely girl who checked us in was sweet and accommodating. They went out of their way to call us and offer an early check-in knowing we'd be on the island from the morning ferry. That was a incredibly thoughtful thing to do. When we arrive we were checked in, everything about the room was perfectly explained and we were left to complete privacy. I have no idea is the hotel was full or empty as the rooms are far enough away and so quite that we didn't see very many people, it was amazing.
We booked the Sunset apartment and it was clean and neat, had everything you need, complimentary rum punch, a kitchen, tv and internet, the use of a cell while on island and a view that can only be seen to be believed.
All we could see was rolling green hills, cliffs, the ocean and all the local birds. We got the sunset of a lifetime even though we arrived on an overcast day, then in the morning walked to the cliff to see the amazing sunset.
I cannot wait to go back again.
What an amazingly beautiful and special place! – 5 star (5/29/21)
What an amazingly beautiful and special place! We stayed in Sunset Cottage for two nights in May 2021. The cottage was lovely. The view was amazing and the sunsets were glorious. The cottage was brightly furnished, extremely clean and had everything you would need for a comfortable week stay (or more). The screened in porch was wonderful to relax on in the evenings, and the resort grounds were gorgeous! The restaurant was open from 11-3 daily and the employees and the food were outstanding! The grouper we had that was cooked by Jonas was the best food we had on our 7-day trip to Turks & Caicos and Brenda and Licy in the restaurant were phenomenal people! There are not a lot of bars or restaurants open on Middle & North Caicos, so we ordered dinner from the Mudjin Bar & Grill both nights we were there. For travelers looking for a beautiful, peaceful and special getaway, I cannot recommend Dragon Cay Resort enough. It is a very special place, located on very special islands.
Frommer’s Official Review (February 2021)
Those travelers to the TCI who have sampled only Providenciales have merely touched the tip of the TCI iceberg. Case in point: this little eco-resort high above the swirling azure seas of Mudjin Harbour and the imposing ironshore ridges of Dragon Cay. It's the only resort lodging in Middle Caicos, a magnificent but still largely undeveloped island of unbelievable lushness. That means craggy ironshore caves, seas brimming with fish, great swaths of pristine bonefishing flats, sea glass dotting the sands, and, well, mosquitoes. Not to worry: The resort's 8 units—5 studio cottages, 2 two-bedroom villas, and 1 three-bedroom villa—have screened porches and A/C to keep out any unwanted pests. Built of whitewashed wood and blue-tile roofs, cottages dot an undulating sprawl of densely vegetated cliffs. The sunny interiors are done in a pastel palette, outfitted modestly but comfortably with good beds and fully equipped kitchens (Sunset has a kitchenette), not to mention big windows and patios that offer stunning views. This is a magical place to play in the great outdoors in peaceful seclusion: You can swim in Mudjin Harbour, explore nearby beaches in Hobie Mirage kayaks, or arrange an excursion with a local guide, including snorkeling and scuba-diving trips and bonefishing expeditions. If you have kids in tow, be sure to take a dip at nearby Bambarra Beach, an emerald expanse with shallow, gentle seas. You may not see another soul.
You can bring groceries in from Provo or North Caicos (the latter is limited) or have the resort provide grocery services before you arrive. Staff keep an inhouse stock of wine, beer, and triple-filtered water for sale, and you can request the day's catch (fresh grouper, lobster in season) from local fishermen. You may not need to cook at all, now that the resort's new restaurant, Mudjin Bar & Grill, perched spectacularly on a bluff overlooking Dragon Cay, is up and running, serving lunch and room-service dinner.
