Recently tried this hotel out as an alternative to the Bohio (which isn't that spectacular) and I enjoyed the stay. As with other places on Grand Turk, it's generally a two to two and a half star hotel but it is clean and comfortable. The facility is located primarily on the beach, but there is another separate section that is across a fairly-quiet single-lane street. There was a large dive group that consumed all the beach rooms the day I was present, so I ended up in the other area across the street. Was in room 1, which was great as it was on the top floor at the very end of that section of the complex, so very quiet. Piddly beach view, but not a big deal as you'll only be there at night or in the morning and the rest of the time you'll either be diving or over at the restaurant or the small bar or wandering around the island. Most rooms there have their own private balconies, which is a nice addition. Beds (two doubles?) were comfortable, all bed and bath linens were in great shape. There is a noisy window-type A/C unit, but it definitely cooled the place down enough to then just run the much-quieter ceiling fan at night. Room had a small refrigerator, no television. Lots of blinds in this room, so lots of light in the morning. If you need darkness to stay asleep you may want to bring your eye shades! No mold in the bathroom, which was a nice addition in this high-humidity country. Hair dryer provided, good lighting in the bathroom, took awhile to get hot water in the shower but once there it stayed hot with good water pressure. Iron and ironing board and hair dryer present. The restaurant and bar are both open-air so be sure to bring your DEET insect-repellant. Lots of mosquitoes (and Dengue Fever) on the island! Restaurant had a limited dinner menu, but food was good. Service was surprisingly (and disappointingly) sullen. On Thursday nights this is a hot-spot for the local community and visiting government dignitaries, so get there early on Thursday. Good reference? The Premier of the Country stays here sometimes. If it's good enough for him, will be good enough for you! PS Do NOT drink the water in Grand Turk - is well-known to be contaminated, so much so that cruise lines stopped docking there for several weeks earlier this spring. Stick with bottled water!
