At Turtle’s Nest, you can rent beachfront condos ranging from a studio to a three bedroom apartment with a sofa bed. It’s only steps away from several highly-rated island restaurants, or you can choose to cook your own meals in the well-equipped kitchen. Daily maid service will keep your rooms tidy and your linens fresh, and you can use the in-unit washer and dryer for personal laundry. Each suite has its own outdoor terrace, and if the kids like to stargaze, you can even head up to the rooftop. The resort has a minimum 3-night stay from April 15 to December 14, and a minimum 7-night stay the rest of the year.

The resort is quaint and quiet. Updated room with appliances. Bathroom could use additional renovations but a nice place to stay. The beach was beautiful but the water a little rough . Very accommodating staff and Jacquie was a marvelous host. We celebrated our Anniversary here and it was perfect. However, there is no elevator and no restaurant within the resort.
We visited Turtle Nest in low season when most islands in the region have very few guests. Even that the hotel was almost empty they managed to give us a room with very limited seaview and a balcony that could only fit one chair. The shower in the bathroom is wrongly built so water goes all over the bathroom floor every time you shower. There is no safe for your valuables, lock to the front door not very secure. Top lock don't work. So not much safety for yourself or your valuable items. Reception area moved from front of property to one of the rooms so no proper check in who comes and goes. Only 1 face mirror in the bathroom. In general the hotel is outdated and the staff nice but totally unhelpful.
On the good side Mead Beach where Turtle nest is located is amazing and this time of the year (low season) we saw only 6-8 people on the 2 km white sandy beach. Lots of other hotels on this beautiful beach.
