“We will never go anywhere else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Not only is this the best value on the island, it's also one of the nicest. The staff could not be nicer! Robin, Valentine, and Matthew are absolutely the most wonderful people, more like family really! They go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. Matthew even made a trip to the airport for us to collect one of our kids that had arrived a day late. They provide you with a local cell phone for free and you can purchase inexpensive international minutes. The rooms are fantastic. Very spacious and beautifully decorated. We had a 1 and a 2 bedroom connecting unit on the ground floor facing the second pool. It was perfect! It felt like the pool was just for us! I will mention that there are the ruins of a hotel that went bankrupt right next door. However, it did not bother us in the least. If anything, it kept noise and people away. If you enjoy snorkeling, there is no better choice than Coral Gardens. The reef is right in front. Somewhere cafe is terrific and right on the property. We also loved Mr Grouper's which is low key and not far (no view but great food!). The only thing I would do differently is rent a car. Taxi's are expensive and there is so much to see and do. I loved every part of our vacation and will definitely be back next year!!!!

The hotel was great. The rooms are actually condos and we had a ocean view front room. they are great. the glass doors open all the way and you have a beautiful view of that amazing beach. the kitchen was fully equipped and me and my hubby enjoyed that they had a blender (margaritas). The bedroom is separate and elevated and the bathroom is fairly large. The location is amazing since its a short drive to either side of the island. The restaurant on the vicinity is ok and the food was good, but I am a bit picky when it comes to food. The drink prices were fair in comparison to other places on the island. The best part of the hotel is of course the snorkeling right in front of it. The hotel is quiet and very nice. I am not sure why it only has 3 stars because it was very nice and clean.

Matthew was with whom I made my reservation with and who greeted us. he is extremely helpful and was very helpful in explaining things about the island.

I must say this was one of my favorites trips we have taken.

Room Tip: Definitely take an ocean front condo. Search online and call directly to get a better price.

We stayed at the Coral Gardens in June (my husband, adult son and I) for a week. Without hesitation, it met our hopes and exceeded our expectations. First, on Provo and in Turks, what could be wrong?! The beaches are breathtaking! Coral Gardens was the best. First, the location is perfect...on Grace Bay, on the beach, directly in front of the national snorkeling reef. Every day, sometimes several times a day, we would make a run around the reef, each time seeing different beautiful sea life. The Condo itself is the perfect tropical paradise. Our unit, beach front on the 2nd floor, was the perfect view. Well upgraded and extremely comfortable. The staff, Michael and Robin especially were gracious, knowledgeable and helpful. They gave us a lot of good tips for our stay. We did rent a car which we found very helpful in exploring the island and going out for dinner. Not everyone rents a car - but we recommend it. Without it, we would have felt a little stranded. We had heard rumors that everything was very expensive on the island. Well, for the most part, these were not rumors. However we did manage to find truly excellent restaurants which were not expensive. Fair warning, however, AMEX is not accepted everywhere, and some restaurants only take cash - especially the smaller ones. Not much in the way of shopping, so do not have any hopes other then the expensive tourist shops and the few locals. The Conch Farm is a must see -- very interesting. And the scuba is really good...especially the walk-in night dives. Truly a vacation we will always treasure!

Room Tip: second or third floor to guarantee an ocean view - if you are in an oceanfront condo.

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...
