My husband and I went to the Osprey with 20 other like minded scuba diving people from our dive shop. We traveled with Delta from Atlanta to Provo. Then, we took Sky King from Provo to Grand Turk, a 30-40 minute flight on a small plane which fit about 20 people. Sky King charges .60 for every lb. over 44 for your big bags and then over 20 lbs. on your carry on. We each had a large rolling suitcase and a small rolling carry on and we ended up paying an additional $25 each way so $50 total for luggage overage fees. We both had full dive gear. We arrived at The Osprey after a $7 per person 2 mile cab ride (non-negotiatble). The hotel front desk got us checked into our Deluxe King suite quickly. Our room was nice. Not too bad. Older furniture and firm king size bed. Larger bathroom.... the nice thing was that we were on ground level and we had a porch area with some chairs and a ledge to put our dive equipment on. If you are a scuba diver ask for room 42 as we were right in front of the beach and where our OASIS Divers picked us up each morning for diving. The room was fine, it had a desk, tv, chairs, a mini fridge.... some glasses, a coffee pot with decaf. coffee only and no tea. Also, you get one complentary gallon of drinking water. They recommended only drinking bottled water there. I know someone who did just fine on the regular tap water but we did not risk it. Anyways, water was like $2 a bottle there. And I think the gallon refill was like $3-4. The resturant there was open for all meals of the day and was not bad. breakfast was like $7, lunch were like $12 and dinners were $20-$30 . Deserts there are $8 and drinks were around $4-$6. F.Y.I the key lime pie is served frozen but it is quite tasty. We went to other resturants within walking distance and we loved the SandBar for lunch. Other resturants were all around the same price. Some people rented golf carts to go around the 6 mile by 1 mile island. There are ATM's 1 mile away. There is a cruise dock 1 mile away with tourisy resturants and shopping that I did not go to.
The maid service was great. Service is slow but the whole island is on ISLAND time. Give yourself time for every meal on the island. Food is pricey there. Someone said they paid $54 USD for Rice Krispies and milk. Seriously. Overall not bad. Good meals. Nice location. Fun Diving. Plan on spending $70 more for travelling and more than $100 a day on food. More if you would like some drinks. $15 USD for a 6 pack of Beer at the local
supermarket. Would recommend this hotel to others.
