“Harbor Life”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This hotel / motel style place is right off the boat dock in Provo. It is simple and clean although a bit worn out. It has a pool which is rarely used other than training for scuba diving. As I said it is right on the dock where fishing and pleasure boats dock. I stayed here to dive wiht Provo Turtle Divers . The dive shop is only a couple hundred yards away. There are 2 good restaurants , Tiki Hut and Shark Bite within sight. You cant beat the price for a room and the Tiki Hut restaurant is also reasonably priced and a local favorite.

Room Tip: The doors face the pool but the rooms on the ground floor have a sliding door and a small patio faci...

We stayed at Turtle Cove Inn because we wanted a quite place to stay in Providenciales that wasn't too expensive. The accommodations were wonderful, and the front desk and cleaning staff were always kind and helpful. It is generally very quiet and peaceful. Some great restaurants close by, including the Green Bean Cafe. Rent a car next door from Bob for a great way to see the beaches around the island.

well, was forced to stay here based on a group decision for cheap rates.
Let's see...
Large and fast beatles in the room - check
Noxious odours, either of septic system or massive amounts of bleach - check
Tiny no-see-ums to leave your legs covered in bites - check (these weren't from bed bugs, which one person did have)
Laundy room left open all day with "clean" sheets lying on filthy tables - check
Check-in and front room help whenever they feel like it - check
Ants, ants and more ants - check
Ok, enough said, I honestly don't have a single positive thing to say about this place.

Room Tip: Lots of vacation rentals very close by, not a lot more money and so much nicer that you couldn't...

For those of us who live in the TCI this little retreat in Turtle Cove is more relaxed and better priced than anything on Grace Bay. The rooms are clean and have nice patios/balconies and I have never had a problem with one in three stays. The pool is a nice facility (although can sometimes be full of novice divers) and the staff are efficient and friendly. The onsite bar/restaurant has some of the best priced beer and cocktails on Provo, but the food is perhaps a touch overpriced (yet of a decent standard). Its also very well located for an almost deserted beache (10 minutes walk), as well as the decent snorkeling on Smith's Reef and the Bite. Also well loctaed for some other good restaurants and coffee shops at Turtle Cove Marina. I'll stay here again and again.

Room Tip: The 2nd floor rooms probably have the best balconies, but all have at least a patio (generally with...

My husband and I stayed here in Jan./13 as an overnight stop before flying to Grand Turk and again before we flew back home. It is not fancy but it is clean. Yes it is an older inn, for what we paid and it was only about 10 min. from the airport we found it very convenient. All other hotels, motels were twice the price.We had a second floor room facing the marina. We loved watching the yachts and fishing boats coming and going. Very quiet at night. There are some good restaurants all within walking distance. We took a scooter over to Grace Bay, which is not far at all. Provo is very expensive and we found this to be a good deal, especially when all we wanted to do was overnight.

Turtle Cove Inn is definitely a case of ‘you get what you pay for’. This is one of the cheapest hotels on the islands, and it shows. The courtyard/pool area is the best part of this property. Additionally, the front desk staff is very friendly and welcoming. From there it goes down hill.

The property is VERY outdated and in need of updating and repairs. The rooms have small tube TVs, outdated furniture, missing drawers, stained furniture, it was quite astonishing. My A/C did not work for the first two nights of my 9 night stay (was told to open the window); I had to ask several times for someone to finally fix it. They take the ‘island time’ mantra to a new level. The bathroom was dingy and had an awkward odor, I found a cockroach and worms in the shower, the water smelled awful and there was rarely hot water. The beds were as hard as rocks, I could literally feel the springs in my back as I slept, not overly relaxing. It is close to the marina and diving/fishing departures but I would rather commute from Grace Bay into the marina everyday.

This american motel style property has an unbeatable location in front of the Marina of Turtle Cove.For this location you pay a fortune in other places. The hotel looks a litle neglected with the first glimps and the reception (8am 10pm only)- is uninspiring anyway. But the 2 helpfull ladies make the things a lot better.The rooms are big and comfortable looking to the Marina.The furniture outdated and tired Very good internet access.
And that's it . Breakfast is not provided but are a couple of restaurants around . Recommended

Room Tip: All rooms are good .
