For those of you planning a trip to O'ahu I would strongly recommend getting far away from the Cancun-lke strip in Waikiki and make the 45 minute journey north to the Turtle Bay Resort. I have been to many luxurious hotels/resorts in the Caribbean and this one beats them all as far as location, landscape, scenery, activities, amenities and services.... More

This was our first trip to Hawaii, and after much research we decided to stay at Turtle Bay. We are a family of five and the Villas at Turtle Bay were perfect! We met the most amazing staff that made our trip above and beyond extraordinary! Special thanks to Amiee, Spencer, Kekoa, and Rocky! We can not wait to come... More

The resort is bit small than seen in the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I literally said this is it. Compare to the resorts that I have been to this was the smallest resort compared to Maui & Kauai but it was okay. Though, the spa services are not good at all compare to the ones I have been too.

This property was SO beautiful! We stayed for 3 nights last month, and were pleased with the service, the property, and the room. Every room has an exquisite view - and a nice balcony from which to enjoy it. We had dinner at the open-air restaurant Ola - wonderful seafood and atmosphere. The only reason I didn't give it and...

Great view, friendly staff, clean room. Was a little disappointed about the extra $30 tax a day we had to fork out on top of the expensive food. Ola was a lovely restaurant with friendly staff. Very and I mean very frustrated that after receiving the check for dinner that the tips were incremented from 18% to 20%. If you... More

The area around the hotel is absolutely picturesque! There's a beautiful view every way you turn. The rooms have been significantly upgraded since the stay I had 4 years ago. The staff is friendly, courteous and always ready to help. The one and only issue I found was that there was a large group of us there for a work... More

We spent two nights at the end of June. We had spent seven previous days on Maui, and came to Oahu for the final four days of vacation. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we felt we had to see Oahu, but were pretty sure Honolulu would not be our cup of tea. We were correct, the north... More

We spent the first week in June at this wonderful resort. Prices go up significantly after that, so the timing was perfect. When you walk in to the hotel, you will notice there are no doors - the whole lobby/entrance area is open to the wonderful weather there, and then you see the view to the ocean from the other...

Aloha, It sounds like you had a great time watching your kids surf, seeing movie stars at Ola and exploring the North Shore. We do offer umbrellas on our beach, but they are on a first-come first-served basis. We also have 5 miles of coastline. If our guests choose to explore our trails in either direction they are bound to... More
