      Historical Traveler Reviews Turtle Nest Inn Grand Cayman

      Turtle Nest Inn is relaxed perfection


      A perfect place to relax! Quiet and charming. Rooms are wonderfully spacious and the kitchens were well equiped with all the basics.

      Marleine and Alain are gracious and generous hosts. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

      Outstanding accomodations, world-class snorkelling, friendly atmosphere


      Turtle Nest Inn was fabulous. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for spotless rooms, a gorgeous beach and the best snorkelling on the island! The owners make you feel right at home and are so accomodating.

      A quiet, private getaway!


      Our stay at the Turtle Nest Inn was a quiet, delightful respite, so unlike the normally busy atmosphere at most vacation spots. We truly had a wonderful time. The Inn imparts a feeling of being in one's own private beach house, just steps from the pool and the ocean. The proprietors, Alain and Marleine, are gracious, accommodating hosts, who made our stay most enjoyable on this our 5th visit to the island.

      Stargazing from the poolside lounges late at night was the greatest.

      Sirius was a sparkly blue! Snorkeling off our beachfront, we were amazed at the beauty of a large turtle; also squid, flounder, and a large variety of coral. The specially prepared Indian curry dinner on the terrace was scrumptious. Everything was just lovely and we look forward to returning to the Turtle Nest Inn again.

      Best Holiday Resort we've stayed at for several years


      We have just returned from our first visit to Grand Cayman. Our stay at the Turtle Nest Inn was great from start to finish - in fact the best place we have stayed at in several years of Caribbean holidays. Would highly recommend the warm, friendly atmosphere and we will certainly be returning.

      Our Carribbean home


      On this snowy November day in the Midwest, we are already anticipating our 4th return to Turtle Nest Inn in January. This is the perfect place for anyone who wants to enjoy everything Grand Cayman has to offer -idyllic beach, stupendous snorkling, great food, delightful relaxation - without the tourist trappings of 7-Mile beach. The Inn is lovely - with every amenity anyone could want. Most importantly, the hosts are unfailingly hospitable to each and every guest. (And don't miss Marleine's dinners!)



      If you want a relaxing holiday away from crowds and big hotels then the Turtle Nest Inn is for you! This is the best place to stay when you are in Grand Cayman. The hosts are wonderful, the location is perfect,the rooms are immaculate and the whole atmosphere is inviting and friendly.

      I am going for my fourth stay in three weeks time and can hardly wait!!

      I have my fifth visit already booked.

      Treat yourself to the best ...


      The location was perfect for us and the amenities were excellent. Our only decision was whether to start our day with a swim in the ocean or the pool. We will be back and be at the Turtle Nest Inn.

      Happy anniversary


      We found the darling Turtle Nest inn by accident on the web. We booked it for our anniversary and LOVED it.The owners were so friendly and helpful. The grounds and rooms were spotless! The beach was very quiet and pristine. The beach walks were long and uncrowded. The family that runs it is superb and their kitty, "Vitamin" is a real asset and a public relations tool!!! We will be returning again for our anniversary on 12/5. Can't wait to go snorkeling. Lucy Stroud

      Like Visiting with a Great Friend of Long Standing


      Unbelievably delightful. Perfect for the laid-back, yet comfortable, holiday. Re-creation at its best. Spotless surroundings. Attentive, unintrusive hosts. We go back year after year, season after season, and will continue to do so as long as the incomparable Marleine and Alain (the host-owners) are willing to make others' time spent on Grand Cayman so utterly salubrious.



      I write this review with mixed emotions. The Turtle Nest Inn (TNI) is a jewel that I might prefer to keep hidden but that wouldn't be fair to Cayman visitors interested in the finest accommadations, and even less fair to the owners and operators, Alain and Marleine. We stayed at TNI the first time we visited Cayman. We found the island so delightful - peaceful and laid-back - that we knew we'd be back. That decided, we looked around extensively for alternative lodging, only to discover that TNI is without peer on Cayman for our tastes. The location is in Bodden Town, off the beaten path - but not too far. We were able to spend a couple of days in the lively Georgetown scene, deep sea fishing, swimming with the sting rays, and visiting the other attractions in Cayman, but we could always return to the romantic isolation of the TNI. Much of the time we just hung out and wandered along the beaches there. In six days we saw no more than eight people on the beach, four of whom were locals and the others guests with us at TNI.

      Not only is the TNI clean, well-furnished and tasteful, but the owners take it to another level with their friendly and courteous service.

      They were our best source for information on restaurants, tourist attractions as well as more mundane things like the best place to buy groceries. The TNI is tops!

      ... A big stingray came and ate the fish from my hand. It felt like a quick suction cup. I asked for another fish from Kevin. As I fed the rays, gone were the evil thoughts of sashimi style or barbecued rays served on banana leaves with chili.

      "How come we cannot hold them?" I asked Kevin. "I need to have that picture!" I demanded from Kevin. So finally Chip held one up and Kevin took my pictures. This was it, finally, I held and kissed one of the older rays. ...

      ... trick again! Delicious dinner tonight i had lobster with BBQ garlic prawns and scallops... so yummy. Kids went to kids club until 11.50 then we picked them up to see the new year in, Koby was trashed and hated to crowds, Millie was cautious of all the drunk party goers so we didn't last long past midnight. They had a huge open air party on the pool decks with around 1800 people it was amazing to see - lights, music, champange, ...

We probably shouldn't have but we now own an authenticated piece of art work with no home to put it in! As an apology from the art auctioneer for not being able to ship it to Australia, Dave was given smaller backpacker sized art and a bottle of champagne. This was perfect as we had something to drink over the free cake after dinner. The ...
