Turtle Cove Inn
Ranked #41 of 44 Hotels in Providenciales
Reviewed August 22, 2011

This is a budget hotel, but one of the better ones I've stayed in. I was there for 10 days in June for a holiday and this hotel suited me perfectly. It's basic, but has everything you need, is well located and clean. I had a top floor room with a lovely view of the marina. The restaurant in the complex shut down on my 3rd night there, but I didn't really go there anyway, instead I rate Sharkbite bar and grille, 2 mins walk round the corner.
Turtle Cove is well located on the island, between the shops, Grace Bay beach, the airport etc. and it's not as touristy as the top end of Grace Bay where most of the hotels are.
If you want a Caribbean resort experience, this is probably not the place for you, but for anyone on a budget and especially with access to a car, this will suit your needs just fine.

I spent one night here as I had a layover for a flight to one of the out islands. I was only there one night and was not going to have time to hit the beach, so I wanted the best value. This is it. As they state on their website, no frills. The hotel is close to the airport and located at the marina. It was very clean (to the point of smelling like bleach). The sheets/towels were scratchy and the bed was hard, but is is a budget hotel. But as I said, it was very clean which is something most budget hotels lack. I like clean! It has a nice pool area and is walking distance to some pretty good restaurants and fishing guides. Provo Turtle Divers is at this marina (I have dove with them and do recommend them). I recommend the hotel if you are looking for a great value and are there to fish or dive. if you plan on going out on the water all day, come back and have a few drinks, dinner, sit poolside, and pass out from exhaustion, I recommend it. If you are there to hang out for a beach vacation, I would stay elsewhere. You can drive to the beach, but whats the point. Plus you will want better accommodations and view. That said, I do recommend it if it fits what you are looking for. Read their website as it is very accurate.

We just returned from our stay here and were very pleased. Turtle Cove is centrally located so we could get anywhere on the island quickly. The hotel was clean, had very pleasant helpful staff and was a fantastic value. The pool and garden area were great. Had a restaurant on site that also provided live entertainment two nights a week. Could easily walk to multiple restaurants around the marina for other options if you want. We walked the beach every day since access to the beach was so close...and the best snorkeling reef on the island is just on the other side of the marina. I would recommend renting a car if you plan to sight see around the island because the taxi prices are high. Well worth the price. If your diving the operators pick you up at the hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room in back if the band is a problem

Biggest advantage of staying at TCI = the RIDICULOUSLY cheap price. We saved a ton of money without too much sacrifice because we're young, adaptable and not very demanding. All other resorts along and within Grace Bay were a fortune compared to this. Everything is no frills but some nice features included:
--polite staff
--cable TV to entertain after an exhausting day out
--cold AC and mini fridge to store our own food
--pretty marina view
--decent lighting
--very quiet

However, this is NOT a good place for someone with above-and-beyond expectations for cleanliness, beach proximity and night life:
a.) Place was not spotless but also by no means unhygienic and bedbug infested, though the crappy beds did quite a number on our backs after just a couple of nights.
b.) Few surrounding restaurants, plus one cafe & one variety store next door were enough hold over 5 nights stay, considering we didn't mind a 40 min beach walk to reach nicer places during our lazy day schedule in between.
c.) The beach wasn't right outside our window, but a 10 minute walk took us to a much more private and fun-to-explore area that connected to the marina.

Biggest deal-breakers that might sway us from recommending this place:
--HORRIBLY spotty "free wifi"; I'm talking super-slow and one entire day where it was completely non-functional. For cheap, on-a-whim travelers stuck on a small island, this one amenity was CRITICAL and likewise left us with a bitter taste.
--Despite our general desire for some quiet privacy in this trip, it's still worth noting that this whole area is a GRAVEYARD on Friday nights. Nothing at all going on in any of the surrounding restaurants at even as early as 11pm. To add insult to injury, the Aqua II restaurant right outside our doorstep had some god-awful live music thing going on that attracted every redneck on the island. Plan a Grace Bay or altogether cross-island excursion that night if you plan to stay at TC Inn!!!

Other than that, less than $85 a night during one of the busiest vacation weeks of the year? From there, you can decide your priorities.

It is midrange hotel. Double room costs about 90 dollars. This place is pretty clean. They have their own pool, but it is tiny. if you don't have big budget you should ask for special offers, maybe you get discount. You can find there small bar and restaurant. Rooms have telephone, cable TV. In season you should book it in advance.

Excellent value for Turks & Caicos, snug in an enclosed harbour, surrounded by various yachts and sail boats. 3 restaurants within walking distance and a new fair trade coffee house - a nice reminder of starbuck style cafes back home. Nice pool to lounge by. Service is minimal in that no one will wait on you while sitting by the pool but there is a bar you can saunter up to and the office staff, cleaning staff and maintenance folks are all friendly. Beach is about a 10 min walk away through a wooded area. I felt safe enough as a lone traveler, but made sure to be back from the beach by dusk so as not to walk through the wooded area by myself. This hotel was a good $40 USD less per night than anything else we looked at on Provo, excellent value. Grace bay and all its hotels, spas and beach activities are a good 30 min walk down the beach or $15 cab ride away but is excellent value as a base location for traveling around the island. Would be great for business travelers too.

Stayed here for 1 night prior to boarding the Aggressor as it was handy to the boat and there are several restaurants within walking distance.

Hotel is getting a little run down but our room had a marina view and was clean.

It was good value as we only paid $79 + tax.

Would not recommend it for an extended stay.
