Crime in the Turks and Caicos
This section has been included as some that have never visited the Turks and Caicos are concerned about this aspect especially having heard stories of some of the problems at other Caribbean,Mexican and Central American resorts.
In assessing the risk one must be aware that the population of the Turks and Caicos is small with many skilled trade and professional expatriates living here. Also consider the fact that it is well publicized by various international and state agencies that the Turks and Caicos Islands have the lowest crime rates of the Caribbean. By USA and Canadian standards the crime rate is negligible.
If one is very concerned, it should be noted that while low, the crime rate is not zero and there are a few crime hot spots. These include the isolated far north west part of the Island, Five Cays and some incidents involving local residents in the non tourist Long Bay area. These areas are not tourist areas and are quite removed from the tourist places of interest. Simply stated, you have to make a effort to end up in those areas and even if you do visit, the risk of being a victim of crime is very low.
All of the Tourist areas are quite safe and the south side where Villa Roi Soleil is located is particularly quiet with no significant crime of any description ever occurring.
Finally, it should also be noted that Villa Roi Soleil is equipped with state of the art security systems as well as critical systems backup to further deter any criminal from thinking the property can be easily burglarized. It is also gated with digital locks at all entrance points for piece of mind of the guests.
We have had some guests become concerned about reports of serious crimes against
tourists after being told stories by various people on the island -
