When it comes to lodging options, Grand Turk has a limited supply, as in a handful (other than rental villas). This laidback little resort has a smashing location on pretty Pillory Beach, in a semi-secluded spot on the island's northwest coast. It has a terrific restaurant in Guanahani, overseen by a talented South African chef, and a palm-fringed beach bar facing the sea. It has a first-rate, inhouse PADI dive staff. The newly refurbished rooms are well-maintained and comfy, if basic (this is a dive resort, after all), but all have patios or balconies with ocean views (some views less direct than others); Beachfront King Superior rooms come with kitchenettes and full-size fridges. And at these prices, who's complaining? For divers, who flock here to explore the mile-deep Grand Turk Wall, and beach lovers in general, this is a solid option. Note that during high cruising season, cruise-ship passengers often arrive in groups for beach/lunch excursions, but resort guests have their own, roped-off beach area—and the cruise ships are off to another port by midafternoon.
