I would say my experience was overall Fair to Good. Service & friendliness were good in some aspects but were not consistent across the spectrum. Location is great if you're interested in going to the Dole Plantation, Polynesian Cultural Center, snorkeling, golf, hiking and wonderful Waimea Valley.It's also close to one of the best Botanical Gardens in Oahu with an...

We recently visited Turtle Bay and had booked through an agent. Our booking had been modified by us and our dates changed, but all had been confirmed and Turtle Bay even threw in two breakfasts because our total for our new dates was a little cheaper and they don't do refunds. All good!!! On check in we found out that... More

Yes they filmed forgetting Sarah Marshall here and yes that is one of the main reasons why we stayed here. Not because the movie was so good but because the setting was amazing. This hotel is located in the north shore (surfer territory) and was just amazing. From the hotel grounds to the service. We spent 1 week in oahu... More

The rooms are spacious and well-equipped with all the... More

We just spent 8 days at Turtle Bay Resort. It was absolutely perfect. Our room overlooked the ocean, and we loved the location. Great hiking along the beach, then a beautiful one mile trail through a tropical rainforest to the amazing Banyan Tree. On the first day we were treated by visiting sea turtles as we swam in the Bay.... More

After a week stay in busy Waikiki and having the wedding of our dreams we thought we would stay in the North Shore for our last week for what we expected complete bliss, romance and luxury. We were disappointed to say the least. It just didnt live up to expectations, building and construction work made most of the hotel look... More

We spent five nights in the resort. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent restaurants in and around the resort. Lots of places to just sit and watch the waves and the surfers, as well s your balcony. Close to world class beaches. Take the helicopter tour and take the doors off!! Would absolutely return.

Aloha, We wish you could have spent more time with us at Turtle Bay as well, but we’re glad you enjoyed your 3 days with us. We agree that you can’t beat the North Shore.
