“Perfection on a beach”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Just got back from 4 days here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was very helpful when we needed advice or assistance, the accommodations were comfortable and you can't beat the location. We walked out of our back door and onto the beach and out the front door to 3 dives shops, a stroll up the historic Main Street and a great restaurant.

Short taxi ride from the airport, beautiful (no, gorgeous) ocean views, clean beach, very clean rooms, very attentive office staff, really good food, great diving with Oasis Divers (who are just down the street) quiet and relaxing! The water and land temperatures were perfect - a great escape in February. I would HIGHLY recommend this resort to anyone!!

After spending less than half of our 8 day vacation seriously scrutinizing the Osprey Beach Hotel, it's staff and it's offerings versus other choices on Grand Turk, I am thrilled to publicly announce our gratitude for the expert hospitality we received. We are divers and as such we are up early and use mostly every service the hotel provides. Our room, the public areas and the surroundings were impeccably clean with an obvious attention to detail and a relaxed grace. The food was important to us because we demand so much of our bodies, diving in 79* water for half the day, everyday. It was well varied, very fresh and delightfully tasteful. The staff at the hotel was wonderful. Unlike Little Cayman, we had options for eating elsewhere for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We indeed explored other restaurants and even looked at a room at the Bohio resort. We were pleased that we chose The Osprey Beach Hotel not only for the reasons I've mentioned already but for the location. We dove with Blue Water Divers (and will not in the future look for another company) but there were two other dive operations within a three minute walk from our hotel. (Kudos to Lucy at Oasis Divers for renting me that hood which kept me toasty warm under the waves!) We boarded our dive boat 5 out of 6 days, 20 steps from our hotel beach. We headed both south and north to dive sites that were at times, less than 5 minutes away. Location is key! Memories and friends were made; what a fantastic trip.

My husband and I stayed 7 nights in January 2014 at this hotel. We stayed in room 46 which is on the 2nd floor and close to the main office. The room had a great ocean view from the private balcony. The view was slightly obstructed on the south side by room 45 which jutted out further than ours, but that actually worked out just right because it kept our balcony in the shade in the afternoons and we could spend all afternoon out on the balcony. It looked like room 45 would have a better view. However, it didn't look like they could open windows on both sides of the room to let a breeze through which you could do in our room. In fact, we just kept the windows open the entire time we were there and the breeze that came through was perfect. No need to turn on the air conditioner that was in the room. The room was perfectly quiet. All we heard were the waves. Perfect! The room was very clean. We had a refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven in the room. I would not recommend eating at the hotel's restaurant. The food is not nearly as good as the Sand Bar or the Secret Garden which are both just a few steps away. The service is atrocious at the hotel's restaurant. There were three tables (including us) and they forgot us for about 30 minutes until we went and tracked someone down to take our order. We tried it 3 times and every time we were very disappointed. Go to the Sand Bar or Secret Garden. We dove with Blue Water Divers (just across the street) and it was the perfect vacation. If you're looking for a quiet, calm, relaxing vacation, I would highly recommend the Osprey Beach Hotel and Blue Water Divers. There isn't a whole lot else to do on the island other than hang out on the beach and dive, but that was just what we wanted. The beaches and water are just amazing and no one is ever on them! It was crazy! We rented bikes one day and rode from one end of the island to the other.

Room Tip: The 2nd floor rooms (there are only two floors) have private balconies and look to all have very goo...

We spent few days in Osprey Beach Hotel in mid January and we enjoyed it a lot. The hotel is situated directly on the beach and it takes 50 steps to enjoy swim in the beautiful, carabean ocean. Rooms are quite big with small terraces and ocean view.

The place is a paradise on Earth. If you're planning to go to Grand Turk, Osprey Beach Hotel is the best choice. Jenny and Georgina are adorable, and all of them were so patience with us and with so much care that our family could not wait to go back on 2016. The rooms are complete, and very, very clean. The food takes a little long to come, but when arrives is delicious. And you're not there to hurry up. Enjoy the beach, the diving points with Blue Water, and Mitch's excelent performance with his guitar at evening.

Room Tip: Definitely the Ocean View rooms... An outstanding morning wake up view.

I really had high hopes for this place as I was the one who chose it for our group of 4 divers. The rooms are really quite pleasant, open and airy. It is on the main street in Grand Turk and within walking distance of other restraurants. I waited 6 months to write this review so I could be fair and inpartial so here we go. In July, this place is dead, stone cold. Maybe the whole island is unless the cruise ships come in. The hotel is very small and nobody seems interested in you at all. The rooms are very clean and pleasant. The outdoor areas off your rooms are okay, comcrete shared space with other rooms, okay since we were next door to our dive buddies but set above the beach with no easy access. The views are nice and sunsets good. Now, the food.: OMG so repetitive! Do not get the all inclusive. You are so limited that eating becomes a true chore! Now, not that other choices are that much better but at least variety is available! Even barbeque night was meh. As far as getting anything to eat other than meal time forget it. The staff is so bored that they appeared put upon to wait on you at all. The guy that picks you up at the airport will charge you even though it is included in the cost. You must go to the office and straighten it out. The dive shop operation was fine (across the street) but I must say the diving was just okay. We went to the cruise ship terminal one afternoon and met some staff that also worked there and they were so much more animated and happy appearing. I'm not sure why but I do know that the people we met were mostly from Jamaica and said Turks were lazy. I don't know about that just told. The island history was interesting but not enough to alleviate some boredom. All in all I wasn't sad to leave like I usually am. I'm one of those people who truly enjoys off the beaten path but this wasn't my cup of tea. I wish I had better things to say because I was excited to go and the water was beautiful but I cannot in good conscience recommend. BTW the water was cold!! Be prepared if you're diving.

Room Tip: I would not do the annex
