Relaxed, beachside comfortable condoPosted Feb 25, 2014
Pros: Our one bedroom condo had a well equipped kitchen and wonderful patio overlooking pool and Coral beach. Friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Take down the half built building next door. Although, I would rather see an empty concrete structure than have people looking over in my room!
Location: Snorkel, swim, parasailing, sailing boating. Explore deserted beaches. Good dining.
Fabulous place. Would return there. Really loved that the coral beach was in front of the hotel. A super place to relax and swim, or read a book and enjoy the spectalar views. We enjoyed our day trip with Go with the Flo Tours to see the Middle and North Caicos islands, see the iguanas and snorkel. Enjoyed fish tacos and drinks beachside at the restaurant, Somewhere. Rained for 3-20 minutes daily and weather was great in February. Mostly 80's with cool breeze.

Perfect beach/snorkeling spotPosted Feb 16, 2014
Pros: Helpful staff - particularly the beach guys and the concierge.
Beautiful beach and excellent snorkeling right outside your door. Plenty of top-rate restaurants to choose from within a short drive. Beachside Somewhere Café has excellent food.

Great Place with a viewPosted Jan 18, 2014
Pros: All suites, with view of the beach.
Location: Didn't need to go anywhere, the beach is just out the door and the Somewhere Café has great food. If you like to snorkel, the reef is right there.
Friendly staff, nice rooms, great beach and reef to snorkel on. Miles of beach to walk. Great food. Things are pricey but worth it if you want a vacation to remember.

PerfectPosted Dec 24, 2013
Perfectly unpretentious. Definitely worth every penny. There are some other very expensive places that may be nicer, but this is the place you want to be if extravagance is not a priority. And that's not to take anything away from Coral Gardens, which is well-kept, clean, and right on the beach. All staff were insanely nice and helpful. I cant wait to go back.

Delightful location, facility, and staffPosted Dec 17, 2013
Pros: A good value vacation location. The facility is quiet, well maintained, and on the beach.
Location: Lots of water sports all around you on the island. A good supply of eco-oriented tours too. The island is easy to get around, and feels safe.
The atmosphere is low key, and the staff do their best to make your stay a pleasant one. They have good ideas and recommendations which can be trusted. The beach environment is wonderful...clear, clean waters and white sandy beaches.....with safe and relaxing swimming.

Excellent Suite with incredible viewPosted Dec 3, 2013
Pros: Location was excellent. It was walking distance from a large park on the island where they have a fish fry and music on Thursday nights.
Location: Snorkeling right off the beach in front of the hotel. Snorkeling and dive boats will pick you up right off the beach.
Very nice condo with an incredible view. One of the best snorkeling reefs is right in front of the hotel beach. Room was clean. There were staff around every day to help you. The groundskeeper, beach staff was very nice and helpful. They have a small office with some necessities for purchase such as sunscreen, There is also a very nice restaurant right off the beach with a great view and live music on many nights. The 2-pools were also clean and warm. There are may, more expensive options on the island, but I cannot imagine them being much nicer than this property.

Great Island & Facility Experience!Posted Sep 16, 2013
Pros: The condo was nicely furnished, clean, and had a picturesque oceanfront view. Great staff & value!
Cons: Nothing noteworthy...
Location: Centrally located with several area restaurants only minutes away. Plenty of fun water activities that are reasonably priced.
Following much research -- my wife & I decided to visit the Turks & Caicos Islands and stay at the Coral Gardens on Grace Bay for a 7-day vacation. The island was better than expected and the condo was definitely a great value! The staff was very friendly, helpful, and customer focused. The condo was nicely furnished, clean, and had a picturesque oceanfront view. The bar/restaurant food, rum punch, and nightly music via area musicians was a nice way to finish a beautiful day on the beach overlooking the clear aqua-marine water with fabulous snorkeling only feet away. The area water activities are plentiful (we highly recommend Caicos Adventures/Dream Tours) and reasonably priced. We have visited numerous memorable beach locations over the years, yet this vacation will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the best!!!

Can't beat the locationPosted Sep 10, 2013
Pros: Excellent location, good onsite bar
Cons: Room furniture is dated and TVs small tube TVs, but we never used our TV anyway
Location: The best snorkeling is literally right in front of the hotel
Coral Gardens has an excellent location on Grace Bay. From the hotel, you can walk up and down Grace Bay to the other restaurants, have the best snorkeling right at your feet, and an excellent beach to relax in the sun or shade. The staff are friendly and very accomodating. The onsite restaurant Somewhere Cafe is an excellent place to watch the sunset from their top deck and enjoy some decent Tex Mex food at very reasonable prices for Turks and Caicos. The hotel's landscaping is excellent with a wide selection of native plants and flowers. Rooms are very clean, with more than ample space. The furniture and decorating is somewhat dated in style but well kept and fully functional.
