Dale and the folks at Oasis Divers and Aqua House condos offer the best
service we have had anywhere.  The staff was very accommodating and low
stress, yet it was the most efficiently run dive shop we have ever used. 
The diving was beautiful and the reef is in excellent condition.  There
were lots of fish, turtles and rays.  The wall is incredible and the boat
rides are short, 5-10 minutes.  Divemmasters set up your gear for you and
give good briefings.  There was not a lot of current or difficult diving,
so Grand Turk could be suitable for beginners.  Aqua house condos are right
on the beach, and are very nicely furnished and decorated.  The condo came
with lots of extras, including a fully equipped kitchen, basic food
supplies (such as condiments, coffee, popcorn), washer/dryer, entertainment
center with a good selection of DVDs, regional interest books, etc.   We
were always picked up for diving so gear transporting was not an issue. 
Dale even drove us to the grocery after picking us up from the airport. 
Oasis provides bicycles which are perfect for touring the small island.  
Not a big selection of restaurants or shops, but the quality of available
artwork and souvenirs is generally nice.  Grand Turk is a wonderful
relaxing place, not too touristy.
