Our third visit in three years to Oasis Divers and Island House on Grand
Turk.  We enjoy the quiet atmosphere and laid back
diving.  The folks at Oasis divers have always been friendly and
accommodating.  Their operation rates a B+  from us.  Island 
House is not on the beach.  It is situated on a hilltop overlooking North
Creek and the Sea.  It is a small family run operation with 
a handfull of suites and apartments.  With your room rate you get a vehicle
which allows you to commute ( 5 minutes or so, 
maybe longer if there are donkeys or horses in the road) to the dive shop
and to explore the island after your day of diving is done.
No restaurant or bar at Island House.  You can drive into town for dinner
and nightlife.  The rooms at Island House have refrigerators
and limited cooking facilities so you can take meals in if you like. 
Island House gets a B+ from us. 
Grand Turk is one of our favorites because of the ease of diving.  Short
boat rides to dive sites.  Lots of little stuff out there.  We
never fail to find juvenile trunkfish here.  Lots of turtles this trip. 
Quite unafraid and approachable.  This is the only spot in the 
Caribbean that we have seen Quill fin blenny.  We have seen them every
trip.  An amazing number of large Groupers considering
they are on the menu every night every where!

Govenors Beach is a short drive from Island House.  Its a nice public

The dining options on Grand Turk are limited.  Not great and somewhat
