[None]The turks head Inn was a former governors mansion that has been a
hotel for several years.  There is a new manager, who took over a few weeks
before we arrived and he is very service oriented.  
The food is the best on the island, but is expensive if ordered ala carte. 
We opted for the meal plan $40 US dollars/day which is a great deal, we had
lobster for dinner most nights!  The hotel service was great.  The night of
our night dive we were going to return after the kitchen was closed so we
asked for a recommendation for Klaus(the manager).  He told us he would
keep the kitchen open until we returned.  When we did, they did not rush
us, but gave us a glass of wine, told us to shower while they prepared our
meals.  The dive operation With Sea Eye was less sucessful.  No one ever
checked our C cards, there was not oxygen on the boats, and the boats were
left unattended while we dove with the divemaster who also served as boat
captain.  He was very good at finding small things- we saw several
seahorses, and was generally pleasant.  There were 2 divers who come back
yearly just to dive with him.  The boats left from shore to the close dive
sites.  Back roll into the water, long dive times, all dive times were over
and hour. The coral is beautiful and very healthy, large schools of fish,
no sharks seen, althoug one diver we met had seen a lemon shark, and manta
the week before.  I would consider one of the other dive operations.  The
island is very interesting, alot of abandoned buildings, no tourist spots,
no souvenier shops.  This is not a place for non-diver.  I would recommend
the turks and caicos museum, try and mmet the curator who is a very
interesting guy.
