The Meridian Club Resort Staff
The two-mile long, unblemished white sand beach has been named one of the Caribbean’s best beaches numerous times over. The crystalline waters are incomparable, and our friendly resort staff will leave you with equally unforgettable memories of your stay at our Turks & Caicos resort.
Island & Resort Management Team
We are lucky to have a great Management Team on Pine Cay, both for the resort and for our private homes. Between them all, they bring fantastic hospitality experience to Pine Cay, and will go always out of their way to make guests feel like they are part of the family and ensure that your stay is a memorable one.
Duke Delancy is our Assistant Island Manager and Head of the Maintenance Department and has been with The Meridian Club since 1975. Responsible for keeping island operations running smoothly, Duke is softly spoken, intelligent and eminently capable. We could not ask for a better employee.
Dining & Bar
This season we welcome Chef Carlos Andrés Meléndez from Costa Rica as our new Executive Chef. Chef Meléndez prides himself on creating dishes that utilize the purity of fresh flavors combined with vibrant colors. He has extensive experience working in Central America and the Caribbean and aims to create dining options for our guests that trigger powerful and delicious memories of a traveler’s experience. He is joined by Pastry Chef, Tar Tar Kyaw from Myanmar along with the rest of our fabulous Dining & Bar staff.
Avianne Adolph and Melissa Jennings are the stellar members of our Reservations and Guest Services Team. They have a wealth of local knowledge to share with our guests, in addition to their gracious hospitality skills.
Adventure & Exploration
Each morning, weather permitting, guests enjoy taking our complimentary snorkeling trip to the colorful offshore reef teeming with fish and other sea life. Raymond Campbell, the Head of our Marine Department and another three-decade employee, will greet you at the dock where he, or one of his team, will captain the ship on the short trip to the reef. He also arranges glow-worm outings and other adventures at sea.
If you love to fish, you must meet J.R. Delancy, our veteran Fishing Guide. J.R.’s knowledge of the waters surrounding the islands is unequalled and he handles all of our bonefishing, reef fishing and deep sea fishing charters. Fishing charters can be arranged at the Front Desk.
When he is not focused on maintaining the resort grounds in exquisite condition, leave it to Sherwyn DrePaul to get you acquainted with the speedy Hobie Cat with a complimentary and immensely exhilarating lesson. A terrific way to experience the breathtaking beauty of Pine Cay from a whole new perspective.
Safety has never been a concern on Pine Cay, and Brian Bishop, Jaime Encallado and Melecio “Mel” Ansong make sure everyone feels secure along with their K-9 staff Kilo and Roscoe.
Vanderlean Taylor, “Lean” for short, is the Head of our Housekeeping Department. If you need anything for your room, ask Lean. If she doesn’t have it, she can usually get it.
