Don't expect up to date and fancy hotels in Grand Turk, but I think Osprey Beach is the closest you can get. The room was nice, kept clean, and had a rustic feel to it. We were on the second floor and had a grate view of the beach and the sunset from our balcony. The beach is one of the better ones on the island, but can get rocky if you go south of the restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a laid-back hotel right on the beach. The setting is lovely-if not updated like other resorts on other islands-it was clean & convenient to Front Street, and other attractions on Grand Turk. The restaurant is good-excellent barbecue nights-with "slow" service. Jenny, the owner, is very attentive and is always there for meal times. Also, the front desk staff was very helpful with any requests-taxi, etc. Although there is not much of a tourist infrastructure, this is a great choice for a hotel on Grand Turk.

Grand Turk is a unique island, and the Osprey Beach is a rare find. It provides an opportunity to experience the Caribbean as it was 20 years ago, with all of the comforts of today. A large, ocean front room in a pink building--with wi fi and AC. An outdoor restaurant surrounding a pool with good food and drink always served with a smile. Small dive boats that pick you up on the beach right in front of your room. Short rides to great diving. What could be better?

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms have an unbelievable sunset view.

Osprey was a great homebase on Grand Turk which didn't have much tourist infrastructure. I'm an independent traveler who enjoys hitting local restaurants and exploring but this was like a laid back boutique quasi-resort experience as we spent a lot of time here. Rooms were very comfortable and I like the dark wood colonial aesthetic. I slipped out the backdoors everyday after diving to nap on the beach -- access couldn't be easier. The little back deck of every unit has was great for leaving wetsuits and gear to dry. Some ocean views were a bit obscured by the vegetation which they offered to cut (we just moved to a diff unit).

But we also had many meals here which was my initial concern as food is an important part of my vacations. The local women cooks were wonderful and I had the best grilled lobster in memory, cooked perfectly by their grill guy. There was good rotation on their small but solid menu (with 4-5 daily specials) so if we really loved something, it showed up again that week. Prices were quite reasonable and we were relieved that we didn't end up renting a guest house with kitchen -- would have cost us much more to cook. We also had excellent dinners at the Bohio dive resort -- the Guanahani had a nice atmosphere, was more expensive, and the menu was the most ambitious we saw -- excellent rack of lamb. Very out of the way though, and the Osprey rooms were nicer, but def spring for a couple of nice meals here.

Anyway, I liked the convenience of walking down the little road to hit the dive shops and have breakfast at Julies (great food plus they had an espresso machine....). I was quite happy with this hotel and liked the staff and owner as well. I don't think there was a coffee maker in the room (or maybe there was but it didn't work well....) I would have liked coffee to always be available at the bar.

Room Tip: Rooms adjacent to the restaurant probably get some noise. While the ocean view from the 2nd floor...

My nephew was married on 11/11/11 at the Osprey & about 30 family members enjoyed the great accommodations at the Osprey. Jenny & her staff could not have been more helpful. Most rooms are oceanfront w/great sunset view & just steps away from the beach, the pool and the restaurant. The food was amazingly good - especially the grilled lobster. We ate most of our meals at the Osprey and were always pleased. The rooms are clean, well equipped, the beds were comfortable and the AC worked great - although the ocean breeze was usually enough to insure a good night's sleep. This is not a luxury hotel, but certainly the best choice on Grand Turk. The front desk arranged massages, kayak tours, diving trips & fishing trips for our group. Dive shops, bike rentals & a spa are all within a 2 minute walk.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor may be quieter but our first floor room was fine. There are some suites a...
