We are looking for a laid back place with great snorkeling and a kitchen. Do you think we would be better off at retreat at rum point or turtles nest inn??? We will have a car. But do really want good onsite walkable snorkeling. Thanks in advance for any help. also if you have somewhere else to suggest please feel free to do so.

Both are awesome. I never stayed at TNI but know alot of divers who have and loved it. We have stayed at the Retreat and loved it. Both are laid back, both have kitchens, both have good snorkeling. One is on north and one is on south though. To me thats important, especially with when you go.

We stay at TNI when we go, but I'd say that beach up at Rum Point (club) is nicer. TNI has lots of turtle grass, but good snorkeling very close to shore. Rum Point is a much further swim to get to the really primo spots, but they are amazing. There's still snorkeling to be done closer to shore at Rum Point, though. I can't speak to the water conditions in the cooler months as we've only stayed during summer...

We like TNI because the location is midway between Rum Point and SMB.

I hope that was at least a little bit helpful!
