My husband & I travelled with our 6yo to Turtle Bay for a wedding. Initially we were staying 3 nights but after seeing the web page activities list we changed it to 6 nights. We had booked a standard room which was a larger than average size for a hotel room. It had a decent sized balcony with 2 chairs with sweeping views of the coast line. I believe every room in the hotel would have a wonderful view of some type with the way it is set out. We tried every restaurant except Ola and found the food to be great. Our favorite was probably the Hang Ten bar by the pool, great food, cocktails and service.
My son did Surf lessons at the Hans Hedemann surf school which was super easy to book right in the lobby and he also did a kids horse ride at the stables. The lady at the stables was wonderful and taught him how to care for the horses and was very informative on the local area and what to see/do.
I made good use of the day spa, the ladies in there really know how to take care of you, take a book and sit in the relaxation area between treatments and soak up the atmosphere.
I do recommend taking your own car up there, the local beaches only a few minutes up the road are amazing and if you get sick of resort food there is nothing else you can walk to but there are other food options/trucks/supermarkets only 10min up the road.
My only gripes about the place - there was a movie being filmed at the time that we were not advised of & one morning I accidently jogged onto the set putting security into a panic & resulting in me having to jog back miles along the highway. (the filming in the area also meant our kayak trip was cancelled) I then gave up jogging and used the gym which is tiny and in bad need of an upgrade (which I believe is happening in the new year?)
Also the self laundry, there are only 3 machines and a lot of people! One day I went to the laundry every 30min for 6hrs and couldn't get a machine available.
