“Not the best beach front, but great location!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We stayed at Osprey for a week on July 2012. We booked a room with an ocean view. Osprey has a convenient location - Mitch's Blue Water Divers is right across the street, and there is a restaurant in the hotel. There is also a bar within walking distance run by two very nice canadian girls that is right nearby. Even though the room is very clean and nice, I was not too impressed with the beach at the front of the hotel. Don't get me wrong, it is indeed your typical Caribbean water with the turquoise hue, but it is not nearly as nice as other locations such as Grace Bay in Provo or North End Beach in Salt Cay, because there are several man-made walls at the beach in front of the hotel to break the waves. I understand it is necessary, but it is just not pretty. I much prefer the view of ocean front at Bohio where there is no obstruction of the view, as far as I remember. I also snorkeled a couple of times in front of the Osprey hotel, not too much marine lives to be found there, mostly small fish. A final comment I'd to make about Osprey is that I almost got charged one extra night at check-out. I don't think the girl at the desk did it intentionally, but it is always a good practice to double check so that you don't get overcharged.

the Brazosport Underwater Club went to Grand Turk for a dive vacation. The hotel is across the street from Grand Turk Divers so it's a very convenient location. the rooms were fine - what you expect in a dive resort - tile floors that sort of thing. Housekeeping was fine. The restaurant has a limited menu and they most definitely operate on island time. Prices are pretty high and the service is slow to non existent. If you want coffee in the morning you'd best go get it. The people are friendly.

There are lots of reviews here on the hotel and relaxing...but I was there to work. and I did love the hotel and GT.

I started out in room 12 - which was nice - at the end of the hotel, quiet, ....but the internet was minimal....which I need when working.

I asked to change and was moved to room 43, with many more amenities ..12 had fridge but 43 had fridge micro toaster, dishes, etc. If I go again, I will pay a little more for all the extras and reduce eating out all the time.

I understand when other reviews talk about slow service but I talked to them after the first day breakfast. I would order earlier (the staff arrives at 7 am, shower, return to eat). That worked great. The food was really good and I had a couple of lunches and the wonderful Wednesday barbque.

My co-workers stayed in a B.B which was a little more expensive but they were also happy. We met a few evenings at the Sandbar, enjoying a cocktail, light dinner, and even played in trivia night.

all in all...I loved GT. I am from the US Midwest and I felt it was a medium size (4000) town placed on a 7 sq. mile island...homey and comfortable, tropical...like a comfort food and lodging place...

First of all, let's understand that if you are in Grand Turk, you are here to relax. Being that said, Osprey offers clean rooms with friendly staff that will be your friends during your stay. As everything here, the word 'rush' is non existent; food takes 35-40 minutes to arrive and no one is in a hurry...but once again, where do you have to go other than to the beach or scuba diving?

Loved the location of this hotel. Rooms and Food better than most "dive hotels" Excellent bar, best rum punch, great breakfast lunch items and dinner specials. They were so kind to my 14 and 16 year olds, made them "special" food teens love. Clean rooms, right on the beach. Dive boat pick up right on the beach. Close to other eating places and bars.

Room Tip: Get a beach room for sure

Went to the Osprey Beach Hotel for a dive trip in early June with several friends. Having been to the Turks and Caicos diving before, we anticipated that the diving would be great, and it was. The dive operation uses Carolina Skiffs, and is restricted to eight divers max. The boats, while small, were comfortable, and the dive staff was terrific. The reefs were in pretty good shape, and the dive sites were quite nice. The dive boats leave right from the beach in front of the hotel - great!

The hotel accommodations were terrific. Would definitely recommend the meal plan, which when we went was $57.00/day. The food was good, the wait staff helpful, and the dining area with the pool right at ocean-side, was scenic and enjoyable.

Also, the Osprey is a bit off the beaten track as far as cruise ships are concerned. While some small hotels on Grand Turk are overrun when the cruise ships dock, Osprey seemed to be fairly unaffected by the influx of cruise passengers. Overall, a really nice experience.

Room Tip: Didn't seem to be too much difference in rooms, at least in the building we were in. The rooms w...
