“OLD walkup style”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

I stayed here for one night only while waiting departure the next day on a dive live aboard. I booked based on price alone (I pd $99USD + about 20% taxes), and kept expectations low. $18 taxi ride from the airport, one way. Room was not ready when I arrived about 1pm, so front desk recommended I go for lunch down the street. The Aggressor boat leaves from the marina at the hotel, so very convenient for their customers. The Explorer leaves from the Caicos marina, about a $22 taxi ride away. Doesn't matter how many people are in the taxi, they all pay the same price. Front desk staff very accommodating and friendly. Clean room, good A/C and adequate bathroom. NO amenities such as shampoo or hair dryer. I drank from the tap and had no issues as water is all desalinated by the gov't utility. Sheets are finished/worn out and need replacement. Bedspread had cigarette burn holes in it. Good water pressure in the shower. Internet was adequate for me. NO restaurant facilities, but several within walking distance which were adequate, however expensive for what you got. Weak pool area but this was not important to me. Easy 10 minute walk to the beach, which is mixed sandy/rocky. Would use this hotel ONLY as an inexpensive layover option in a country with overpriced accommodations across the board.

Room Tip: If you have dive gear, ask for a ground level room as no elevator. They will keep your big stuff loc...

Thanks in part to the government, our dive trip to the T&C was ruined, and we were forced to find alternate housing while our Dive boat worked to resolve what should have been a simple paperwork issue. Instead, we were shuffled from hotel to hotel while the officials burned our vacation. We ended up at Turtle Cove where the rooms had loose/jimmied locks, no ice, no working room phones, and no hot water. To cap it off, one of our rooms was illegally entered by locals who stole a laptop, cell phones, and a camera. When the police were notified, they were too busy to come, and promissed to file a report 'tomorrow'.... No police ever showed up...

Shabby place, with poor facilities - step back into the 60's..... Avoid this place and spend your money in America where people appreciate you.

Room Tip: My tip to choose a good room?? Go somewhere else.... Better yet... Dont go to the T&C at all...

this place is not nice by any means... but its centrally located near restaurants and bars (no expensive taxis required). the beds were fairly soft, the sheets were clean, and the inside was clean enough to stay for a couple of nights.

the air conditioning worked really well (we actually were too cold and that never happens) .... the wi-fi was horrible in the rooms, but all of the restaurants around the hotel have good wi-fi... and if you went near the main office the wi-fi worked fine.

i recommend staying downstairs so you don't have to lift your bags up stairs and also requesting a marina view room. the patio overlooking the marina only had two plastic chairs with no tables... this place is no frills but it was fine compared to the other options which were double the price of this hotel. if the owners put a little money into the place they could have a very nice place.

instead of hanging near the pool during the day i would recommend taking a taxi or drinking to taylor bay which is 15 min away... an amazing beach... then go to las brisas for lunch.. this place had a nice bar / restaurant with a fantastic view (across the street from taylor bay in the neptune villas)... also it had a pristine pool which you could use all day for free... (the one at the hotel is a little out dated).

I've stayed at Turtle Cove numerous times over the last 15 years going to and from Salt Cay. One way or another, we wind up having to overnight in Provo. I like the location, I like the people there and though the rooms are basic, Motel 6, trust me, there are far, far worse places to spend a night in Provo..I know, I've been there. There are other places to stay, for an night, that are great...but they are much further for a cab ride and can be hard to find...and not much around them. Here you have some good places to eat; a nice view and area to take a little walk around the marina...it's trustworthy.

Room Tip: If you have lots of luggage and just for a night...get a downstairs room. Staying a while? Get an...

The pool looked exactly like this!! We had a great stay at this Inn... it was a stop over before we went of a missions trip to Haiti.
Remember the price of the room is on your credit card and once that was done, the price in Cdn dollars was $171 which was quite expensive for what we got.
It rained one night and we had a flood in the washroom as we were on the second floor/top floor. The plaster had been fixed/patched before so this was apparently an on-going problem.
Great restaurants nearby and the beach was beautiful.

THIS PLACE IS DIRTY AND THE STAFF IS RUDE!!!! Booked a night here on Hotels.com. Price was supposed to be 129.00 a night and 30 for roll away for 5 people. But once there, they tried to scam us for 230 a night saying that price was for double occupancy. All there is NO roll aways! My child had to sleep on the tile floor with a smokey bed spread. No extra blankets! When I asked for more blankets I was told that the manager on staff didn't have an extra key to get another blanket! This place is sooooo bad! DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING GOOD THAT YOU SEE ABOUT THIS PLACE. I want to take a shower in bleach every time I think of Turtle Cove Inn!!

The motel is basically an American Motel 6 or Days Inn equivalent. Yes, there are maintenance issues, etc. But if you are on a tight budget but still want to experience Provo, this is the place to stay. Provo is very pricey. Do not expect a resort at this price. I must quickly mention, the two ladies that work the front office did everything in their power to be accomodating and NEVER with a bad attitude. This means alot to me. Whatever they had available to work with, or give, they did just that, with grace. The maids are not as friendly, especially regarding towels, but I am assuming any missing towels come out of their pay. No problem. If you need extra, ask at the front desk! Also, English amongst the maids/maintenance is limited, although they pretend to understand what is being said. Yes, the TV's and refrigerators are old, but are functional. I mean, we were not in the room enough to let any of this phase us. TV's have many American channels, mostly out of Miami and cable. The bedspreads were Motel 6 quality. Beds and pillows were clean and comfortable. Not a Four Seasons, but remember the price you are paying. Our first floor room had a great view of the Marina. It had two plastic chairs to sit and have a cocktail before dinner. In some of the second floor rooms, you can actually see the ocean, although at a small distance. We used the pool twice and it appeared clean and we did not experience any health issues. No one was using it much while we were there. It is a 15 minute safe daytime walk to Bight Park where the public beach area is. Safe and beautiful! We had relatives staying on Grace Bay at the West Bay Club (exactly one mile from Turtle Cove - 20 min walk) and we were able to use their beach facilities so we did not experience the public beach personally. But we did walk to look at the beach through the small picnic area. We most certainly would have felt comfortable there if we needed to use it. There are fabulous restaurants in walking distance to the motel. I will give my review on them here on Tripadvisor. One we did not get reservations to, but our family did was Magnolias. They raved on it. There is a small strip center next to the motel where you can purchase soft drinks, waters, snacks, wine, etc at a reasonable price (example, $1. for bottled water which was a fraction compared to Grace Bay area or the local IGA Store). Sketchy hours of opening and closing, but a good deal. Right past this small strip center are the restaurants I will review including: The Grean Bean, Baci and Sharkbites - All good and reasonable priced for the island vs Grace Bay area. Folks were driving and taking cabs from Grace Bay to visit these restaurants. Taxi's can be expensive and can take advantage. This was another reason we were happy to get the exercise and walk to many locations. But we did get the hook up through the front desk with a cab by the name of Sonny's who treated us fair, knew much about American movies and TV and was actually funny. We felt safe with him and not ripped off. He was always on time. My relatives at West Bay were paying up to $750./night. It felt good walking away at a fraction of the price. We plan to return to the Turtle Cove Inn for a week long stay during off season. Will give update at that time.

Room Tip: We were originally on 2nd floor 214 - king bed. Shower was almost deafening. Slept well. Fabulous...
