In two different articles in the syndicated travel section of The Washington Post, staff writer Cindy Loose makes honourable mention of Turtle Nest Inn. In the October 2002 feature on Grand Cayman entitled "Caymans Confidential" (subtitled "Expensive isn't always better"), she claims that the Inn is "...perhaps the best buy on the Island". The article was reproduced across the USA and around the world, in newspapers that included Sarasota's Herald-Tribune, The Times-Picayune of New Orleans, The Ann Arbor News (Michigan), The Philadelphia Inquirer, Raleigh's The News & Observer (North Carolina), Florida Today, and New Zealand's Sunday Star Times. And, in February 2006, Loose's feature is a "tip sheet" on how to save money when planning a a Caribbean vacation. "Seek out small properties" is the eleventh of twelve tips: "If you don't need the fitness centers and other frills of big hotels and resorts, you can find on most islands attractive, charming smaller properties at a reasonable price. Grand Cayman, for example, is known for its upscale resorts. But even here, you can book a pleasant room along the water for between $89 and $129 per night (or an apartment from $119 to $199) at Turtle Nest Inn (345-947-8665, http://www.turtlenestinn.com)." Although these rates are slightly outdated, and now go from US$99 to US$229, per night (depending on the season and the accommodations), you can read the entire article by clicking on "A Dozen Ways to Skimp in the Sun".
