Bump my own thread - just back from TCI, and its a lovely place. Certainly better than Jamaica or the Bahamas or BVI, but more expensive. Ended up staying at the Gansevoort on Grace Bay and it was a great place and a fair bit cheaper than the Amanyara. Would recomment the islands, but after spending years on the islands in SE Asia, my advice would be to save more money and invest more time going there. Even the "shitty" islands in Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia blow any and all Caribbean islands out of the water and are a much better value.
