Thought I had selected the perfect resort to celebrate our engagement...couldn't have been more disappointed Finally getting around to posting this review for our stay last year (7/7/14 – 7/8/14). We’ll be returning to Oahu again this August, but will NOT be returning to Turtle Bay. Here’s why: After years of searching...found my soul mate. After a short while of... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and had the best vacation of our lives. The sunrise/sunsets are literally breathtaking and we made sure to be at each one. What really sets this place apart is its location on the North Shore. My wife and I hiked a couple miles along the beach in both directions and were basically alone. During... More

We stayed here for my 50th birthday and it was a real treat! The resort is in such a wonderful location! The people who work here are very nice! There's a great selection of places to eat! The excursions are easy to book right there and are close by! We did the helicopter excursion which was great (we got a... More

Let me start on a positive note. Turtle Bay resort is in a location where it truly has no rivals. There are no hotels of comparable quality on the North Shore or Windward side. In fact, I have not seen any large hotels at all, only 'room for rent' signs. The building is located on a small peninsula, surrounded by... More

Turtle Bay was our final stop on our Hawaiian Islands tour and the one we were most looking forward to, and it didn't disappoint. We had a superior room on a high floor looking out over the pool and the ocean. I don't think we sat inside for a minute, instead preferring our balcony and the amazing views. The beaches,... More

This was our second time staying at the Turtle Bay Resort. It is so nice & relaxing. We stayed in the condos, which are comfortable, furnished, have full kitchens & laundry. The pool area is great & the BBQs are nice to use. 10/10 would stay again!

We traveled here with a group of four couples after our good friends wedding and stayed on the villa side in a four bedroom condo. What an awesome experience! This resort offers almost anything you could ever want to do, and we had a great time exploring it! If you are looking for the type of resort where you never... More

There are many pros. I'll list a few: The resort is beautiful with many amenities, including a lovely spa with a lengthy creative list of services, i.e., a "numerology massage". Also, the lovely ocean front spa relaxation area is the best place to view the sunset! Good towels and luxurious robes are provided in spa. The staff are helpful and... More

I have wanted to visit Turtle Bay for years, so expectations were high. We stayed in a Beach Cottage and it was well worth it. Below is some feedback that might be useful for future visitors: We organised transportation from the airport prior to our arrival through the hotel. Sadly, the transportation organised was disappointing. They were not at the... More

The location is amazing with the resort perched on a peninsular between a great snorkelling beach on one side and a surf beach on the other. The rooms are fine although not amazing, but they nearly all have water views. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location catches the breeze so you can find a cool place to... More

Aloha, Thank you for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. I apologize for some of the annoyances you experienced concerning parking and drinking water. We recently removed bottles of water from our guest rooms and replaced them with reusable flasks to help the environment. Hawaii’s tap water is some of the best quality drinking water around. It is rainwater that is... More
