Let's start by saying this is a very small, remote island so that we can get our expectations set properly. There are NO 4 or 5 star resorts on Grand Turk. That said, this is a very nice small hotel on a very beautiful beach as long as you stay in one of the rooms on the beach and not in the courtyard atrium. We originally booked in the Atrium and quickly found out we had made a mistake (our bad). After a quick initial discussion, the lovely office staff and manager offered us a discount on a beach front room which we gladly took them up on. Thankfully they had a room available as it was a slow week. That offer and decision certainly changed our experience. Don't go for the cheap room!
From our wandering around, this is probably the nicest place to stay on the island. There is not a lot to do beyond diving and enjoying the beach, both of which are good. Restaurants are sparse, have limited menus and are relatively expensive so keep that in mind when you come. Oh yeah, cash is king on the island so come prepared. Some places don't accept credit cards or have a minimum (although the Osprey does so without a minimum). The restaurant food at the hotel was decent and service is very relaxed (slow by American standards) here as it is everywhere on island. Having kitchen facilities allowed us to hit the local grocery stores and stock up on breakfast, snacks, water and other beverages.
The highlight of the hotel is the beach and the views from the rooms and restaurant/bar. Amazing sunsets every night. On our last day, it was very calm and visibility in the water was great. We took off snorkeling from the beach and headed out towards the reef wall. On our snorkel we saw a nurse shark, a stingray, 3 ocean triggerfish, a large barracuda, a turtle and 2 eagle rays not to mention all of the usual parrot fish and other reef fish.
