After flying into Honalulu, the best way to get to Turtle Bay, is to hire a car. It's about an hour drive depending on traffic.
There is parking at the hotel that is included in the $36 resort fee that you need to pay each day. This also gives you free wifi, use of facilities, free snorkelling and more.
We had a partial ocean view (was actually full ocean view) and it was beautiful. The room was large, and the bathrooms were quite big and included 2 basins.
It is quite isolated on the north, so we ended up eating at the restaurants at the resort. They were of a good standard and overlooked the ocean.
The only issue we've had, is that when you charge your bills to the room, they take pending transactions from your card. At the end of the stay they tally the bill and take the money from your account, but they don't cancel any pending transactions for a long time, so if you are relying on having money for continuing your holiday, be aware that they are very slow to release the money that's yours if you are using a debit account. I have tried contacting the resort twice and they haven't answered which is why they don't get 5 stars.
