“Location trumps all---housing and snorkeling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Location, location, location.....so if you are snorkeling for the first time it is wise to stay here so you can simply go out the door and put on the fins and mask and hit the coral reef...not once, but three times a day.....and if you are a dogmushing couple from North Dakota, celebrating your 40th anniversary....this is just a wonderful experience.....thank you Jaya and all who made this trip so very special.....Roger and Nancy Johnson

Room Tip: Just ask Jaya what her suggestions would be (she was right on for us)

Just spent a week at this location and, like many of you, we read and re read TripAdvisor reviews with hopes of finding a great place to vacation. We stayed in room 2022 which is an ocean front one bedroom condo. This was our celebration trip for our 30th wedding anniversary and we were also celebration my wife's birthday. Obviously we wanted our accommodation to be nice, and at the very least, not something we regretted. Coral Gardens on Grace Bay, and specifically our room (or a room like ours) was perfect for our trip. We rented a car (a must for experienced travelers) and we while we enjoyed our room, we also experienced as much of Provo as possible. This place is strikingly beautiful. The Condo was spacious, clean and comfortable. "Somewhere" is just steps away providing refreshments food and live music. I think this is one of the best locations on Grace Bay. Just in front of Bight Reef for easy and great snorkeling. A short walk down the beach to the west is another great coral reef (directly in front of the Aquamarine Beach houses). The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. You really should consider staying at Coral Gardens and you really must see this beautiful island.

We just got back from our third trip to Turks. This was our second time staying at Coral Gardens and once before we stayed at The Sands at Grace Bay. Coral Gardens is a small boutique resort that has really spacious rooms and a great reef right outside your doors. We were a little disappointed because our room, although clean and nicely appointed, had two broken AC units and a broken microwave. The management was wonderful and prompt and attempted to fix the AC units almost every day we were there. Just slightly annoying that there were work crews in our room 5 out of the 8 days we were there. The pools are very small and the water does not circulate well in them so there is constant flotsam floating on top. However, we did not use the pools often because the water and beach are much better than any pool! The restaurant on the premises, Somewhere, has good food and nice daily specials, including some nightly entertainment. One other note... the first night we arrived, they put us up in the "White House" since our room was not available until the next day. Although this room is very spacious (three bedrooms and three baths), it is in some serious need of renovation. The walls must be spackled and repainted in order for anyone to feel as though they are on vacation! Lastly, we felt very safe while vacationing at this hotel (and anywhere on Grace Bay!)

Room Tip: We stayed in a two bedroom that could easily accommodate 6 people comfortably (two in each bedroom a...

Once you arrive at this hotel you may expect a fresh hand towel or a glass of water.The only problem is that the reception is always unattended. At check -in and again at check -out you literally have to wait for somebody at front desk to show-up.
The manager ,Matthew is unreliable . Mixed feelings about this hotel.Not sure if I am interested to return again...

We really enjoyed our first visit to Provo and our stay at Coral Gardens. We upgraded to better room after our first night and were very pleased. Matthew the manager was very helpful. The location is great, especially for first time visitors. It is in the center of Grace Bay so it is convenient to different ends of the island. The snorkeling was good and right off the beach. Jerome on the beach is so nice and helpful. We enjoyed having Somewhere Cafe on property, but you probably need to rent a car if you stay there. We did a snorkel trip and they picked us up right off the beach. Overall a wonderful stay-we hope to return!

The friendly reception from Robin got us off to a great start!! They upgraded us to and ocean view suite with no additional expense. Our suite was beautiful, spacious, clean and comfortable. Grounds and housekeeping staff were hardworking, attentive and friendly. We especially liked greeting Jerome on the beach each morning when we arrived for our morning swim. We were located directly in front of a coral reef where other vacationers on the island traveled to for scuba diving and snorkeling. The smell of the sea breeze and the food from Somewhere Cafe (on the premesis), combined with the live music from the cafe created an incredibly relaxing environment to vacation. This location was perfect as it was centrally located along Grace bay for a short travel to other scenic locations, restaurants, shopping and the ferry to the other islands. Evening walks along Grace Bay finished the day with spectacular sunsets that we will never forget.

Room Tip: Ocean view suites are the best!! We were upgraded from a garden view room to and ocean view suite...

We rented a 3 bedroom house on the property for a family reunion and couldn't have been happier. Steps from a beautiful fresh water swimming pool and a few more steps to one of the most beautiful beaches on the caribbean. You don't have to leave - you can snorkel, dive, parasail, charter a boat and it's all right in front of you. You can walk down the beach which is a short way to a restaurant that will serve you on white tablecloths on the beach while the sun is setting, or the other way to a local fish fry with live music and vendors selling wonderful local food. The rooms are clean and kept that way by friendly, unobtrusive staff. We liked the fact that you can cook if you want to - grocery store is within walking distance - but there is also a wonderful restaurant on the property that has a great bar and wonderful food - so much better than all-inclusive food. It really doesn't get much better than this!
I highly recommend this property and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Try to get a corner suite in the front - stunning views and you can open the sliding glass doors to...
