Gormet food and great bar. The diving is very close to the resort so there
is no long boat ride. Best beach on the island so it gets crowded when the
cruise ships are in. Boats are open panga style and some divers are very
nervous about leaving the boat unattended during the dive. NOT A GOOD
IDEA,but that's the way they do it on Grand Turk! We had 10+ divers on two
boats and that was too much for one person to handle. The dive staff
consisted on one person and he developed a personal problem with one of the
divers which affected everyone on board.The dive shop manager/boat
captain/deck hand/tank boy/equipment specialist was overworked and as a
result was not always "plesant" with some of the divers. A second
boat was contracted to help with 20+ divers and the second boat used a deck
hand which did help. The resort owners are absolutely great and will do
anything in their control to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are clean,
cool, and very satisfactory for a Caribean resort(do not expect 5 star). 
Downtown seems to have taken a turn for the worst since the cruise ships
arrived. We were hassled at the grocery store by panhandlers that will not
take no for an answer and became abusive.
A last warning about the airport on Provo. It is the worst I have ever
seen! With 4 to 6 flights leaving in the afternoon,the departure
lounge,which can comfortably hande a couple of hundred,is unbearble with
800-1000 people cramed in. No air, no seats,no place to even sit on the
floor. Totally unaceptable! The airport itself is reason enough to stay
away from Turks and Cacios until the situation is addressed.
