We visited the Club Med Turkoise (Providenciales, Turks & Caicos) Sept 21 – 28. This was something like our 14th visit so we know our way around and can compare things to “how they used to be”. As expected, the village has not changed much; it still needs some

I have heard in the past that if you ask reception they will supply you with an "egg crate" for your bed. Does anyone know if they do that at Turks? I have, in the past, found Club Med beds to be very hard and uncomfortable.
