This is our 3rd trip to Grand Cayman, and our 2nd stay at Turtle Nest Inn. Like the title says, on both the island and at the Inn, it's the people that make the difference. Every person we came in contact with was pleasant, friendly, and helpful. A great team of 4 make up the main face-to-face staff at the...

We just returned from our 6th visit to the Turtle Nest Inn and our longest stay, 14 days. We have already booked for next year and another 2 week stay. The Turtle Nest is located in Bodden Town away from the busyness of Georgtown yet easily accessible by rental car which is included in the accomodations at the Turtle Nest....

So much to love about this place but what makes the difference is that there are only 9 units in the building and the staff is beyond helpful. We were in unit 3 which is accross the front desk. It was very convenient as we were only steps from the pool and we could come and go as we pleased...

Booking - When I found this hotel online, the pictures looked unimpressive, but the reviews were exceptional, which prompted us to book with Turtle Nest. After looking at the choices, we booked a beachfront condo from Dec. 26th – Jan 2nd 2010 to celebrate the New Year. (FYI- this is their “best” option, and I absolutely recommend it; it is...

This past Christmas we spent our holiday in Grand Cayman. We chose to stay at "The Turtle Nest Inn", which is located about 10 miles from Georgetown. Our stay at The Turtle Nest was very enjoyable. The rooms were very clean, the beds were comfortable and the host and hostesses were very friendly and accommodating for us. A small car...

For the past five years, Turtle Nest Inn has been our home away from home. We look forward to our time there, whether we're relaxing under a palm tree on the crowdless beach or enjoying the scenery from the privacy of our patio. It's perfect. The rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable and stocked with everything you need. Everyone...

We really liked Turtle nest Inn. It was great deal, esp with the car included. Donna and John are welcoming and very helpful, and Donna makes a mighty fine pina colada. If you really want a high rise hotel on the strip, however, TN"i ain't it. That's just fine with us, we'll take TNI in Bodden Town any time. We...

First, just to be clear, its been 5 years since I stayed at the Turtle Nest. But I just wanted to put in my 2 cents on the snorkel opportunity. Esp when I saw a neg reviewer who complained about the rocky beach meaning you can’t snorkel here. Silly. I’ll let you look at the other reviews for room and...

My recent stay at the Turtle Nest Inn on Grand Cayman was the result of desperately trying to escape going home to a miserable Nebraska winter. We had been staying for a week on Seven Mile Beach, which is much more built up. I decided to move to the Turtle Nest Inn when the rest of the family left. Even...
