Hotel's Favorite
We had an amazing stay at the newly re-imagined Turtle Bay Resort. The Ocean Bungalows were designed with luxury, comfort, and style. The view of the ocean is uneatable and the location feels serene. Every staff we encountered were genuinely friendly. They were happy to start conversation and were respectful yet always willing to offer more than what you would need. Dinner at Alaia and lunch at the Beach House are a must. Alaia’s ambience, service, food and drinks are remarkable. Beach House was lively and food was delicious. Thank you to their GM Keith for making sure we enjoyed our lunch. We were fortunate to get to know Lani, who was a gem in putting together our stay. It was indeed a wonderful experience. As local residents, Turtle Bay is one of our favorite retreat for staycation. This stay made it even more special and we are truly grateful for the 5 star experience. We couldn’t be more pleases to recommend the resort to everyone!

Turtle Bay is located on the north shore of Oahu, away from the crowds. The beaches are beautiful. There are many on-site activities- we enjoyed kayaking with sea turtles. I would give the resort 5 stars if the food had been better. The food was tasteless, which was disappointing since the resort is not located close to other restaurants.

Turtle Bay Resort was the perfect trip for our family. So many fun activities to do mixed with perfect relaxation. The views from the resort are incredible. The location is private yet can drive to anywhere on the island with no problems. The hotel pools are for adults only as well for kids- and the two slides are for both kids and adults :) All of the restaurants at the resort serve high quality, delicious food. Staff is attentive and friendly but also respect your privacy. This is the type of resort where you can spend your whole time there and be Very satisfied and get the Hawaiian experience or venture out and experience O’ahu that way too. Highly recommended for Everyone!!

Where to begin? Our 8 night stay in a bungalow at Turtle Bay Resort FAR exceeded our expectations and we had high expectations after seeing the renovations online and reading all reviews. Not only was this a vacation but also where where we held our wedding (booked one of the resort’s elopement packages). About a week before our arrival, we received emails from the bungalow hosts and were able to reserve a JBL speaker for the room (awesome) during our stay and they were able to answer some of our questions (what was included in the resort fee) and helped us book some activities - the splash with Pono hike is a MUST! Also included in the resort fee are bike rentals (you can also upgrade and rent the e-bikes for a fee), the usual classes of ukulele and lei making and hula, fitness center classes like yoga, rental of a GoPro for one day, etc. Lots included in the resort fee. Upon arrival we were “lei-ed” and immediately greeted by our bungalow host, Foa. She was a pure delight and so kind and attentive all week. Any questions we had were immediately answered. I cannot say enough about Foa. She was truly amazing!! Room is amazing - pics you see online do not do it justice. Private lanai. Beautiful views and sounds of the waves. Very private. We wanted a bit of privacy away from the resort to celebrate our wedding and mini moon and this was perfect. Bathroom included a fancy toilet! Lots to do at the resort. Walking trails down to the stables. Lots of hidden coves to swim. The bungalows also have its own small pool with a drink truck which was quiet. Beach access includes towels and umbrellas and loungers. Ate one night at Roy’s onsite (delicious but make a reservation) and one night in the lobby bar. They were extremely busy the night we were there and the kitchen was “backed up” but you are on Hawaii time and hard not to relax and enjoy the wait with the views the lobby offers. We did rent a car and explored some of the area food trucks. If I had to recommend one area of improvement I would ask for ice to be available to the guests. We needed to ask our host a few times for ice and she gladly delivered but we would have been more than happy to fetch our own ice. Not a compliant! As for the elopement package… the resort handled the booking of the officiant and photographer and ukulele player. I was able to book hair and make up at the Spa onsite. We ordered a delicious cake from the hotel. Onsite coordinator was awesome. Foa set up a romantic meal for us out back on the lanai from Lei Lei’s. I highly recommend North Shore Florist and Liz for your bouquet. The package supplies the leis but Liz created an amazing bridal bouquet of the most beautiful and brightly colored plumeria flowers you will ever see! Honestly awesome! MAHALO!

My husband and I stayed at TBR for 4 nights as part of our one week stay on Oahu. On arrival from Waikiki, we were in awe of the large grounds and beautiful reception area. Overall, the staff were friendly, however did try to upsell us to a bungalow quoting Forgetting Sarah Marshall which felt odd, and a bit forced... Our room was beautiful, very spacious (especially the shower) and balcony view was incredible (Club Room on 6th floor, sunset view). We even saw whales from our balcony! The room overall was lovely, and very comfortable. We were celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary/very delayed honeymoon, and we were delighted with a bottle of champagne, some cookies (they were to die for!) and fresh fruit in our room. Falling asleep at night to the sound of waves was just bliss! As we stayed in the club room, we had access to the club area which had free food/drinks at certain times. Food was ok, selection was very small. I have quite a lot to say about TBR, and mixed thoughts to be honest: PROS - Beautiful idyllic setting on North Shore, absolutely stunning beaches along the coast (take a walk to the "hidden beach" and beyond). Please, if you come here, take the time to explore around the resort by foot. We saw turtles!! - Fantastic sunsets - Room with a great view (club room) - Roy Yamaguchi Beach House food was AMAZING (highly recommend). Best food on-site, do not miss out!! - Might be a bit specific, but fun if you are a fan of the tv show LOST - famous banyan tree and LOST walk. We loved it!! Cons - I must say prices are outrageously inflated. I would not have stayed here if it was not my honeymoon/wedding anniversary. For example, $25USD++ for a cocktail is just insane ($45AUD once tax and tips added) and the price per night was more than I have paid to stay at a 6 star Maldives overwater bungalow with a private pool. I was expecting an expensive stay, but I actually felt ripped off. Hotel should review prices. Not very good value. - Resort does not feel exclusive for the price. Lots of people from the public accessing the resort and facilities illegally. Even witnessed a couple (not guests) get kicked out of the general pool area, to them proceed to the adult pool, to then get told off again. There should be more security provided by hotel (ie provide room number and name to get pool towel). Another example: adult pool was our go-to as it was quieter, however guests were on one occasion blasting music through a portable speaker and staff did not tell them off? Found this strange. We also indulged in a 80min relaxing massage which was fabulous. However, we could hear people talking in the corridor during our service which was off putting. Also very, very expensive... Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, but did not feel the price justified the level of exclusivity and service. Staff were lovely overall, but wasn't the 5 star service you would expect. I don't think I would stay here again, however if you are celebrating a special occasion, it could be a great treat for you and your significant other. We didn't do any activities, as we wanted to spend our time relaxing by the pool and enjoying the resort facilities and the beautiful nature surrounding it.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days for our honeymoon last week. The room was very updated and the view was amazing. However, that’s really where my compliments can stop. For the price, we expected people to be friendly and helpful. There was one woman the whole time who helped us get a $200 shuttle back to the airport. When we checked in, the man was kind but in a rush because the computers were at risk of crashing. Then at the bar, one drink is $25! I’m sorry, we are not cheap but that’s absurd. One night at sunset bar, we did not even receive silverware or napkins after waiting for quite some time. It is also very hard to get around and when we asked the concierge for local things to do, she told us we can hang out by the pool. Lastly, breakfast was included in our package yet when we checked out, it ranged from $23-45, to which they told us it’s only included to a limit (which we were never told). Overall, not how we wanted to start our honeymoon after traveling 13 hours to be there. We went on to stay on Kauai at a Hyatt and that was sooo much better.

I will never go back to this resort. My husband and I went here to have a quiet week after he retired. It was like I was talking to a wall when I checked us in. We got to our bungalow and went outside to enjoy the view. We were directly in front of the pool that was used by all of the bungalows! Also we were beside a young family with kids. Not what we were hoping for. Young families on holidays should have a great time but they were up early and loudly excited to start the day. Then the pool was never quiet so we could not enjoy our patio in peace. There never seemed any urgency to address our concerns and even locked us out of our room after we requested a late check out. The other major concern was the cost. I realize that every hotel in the world is trying to recover some lost revenue but holy cow. Hidden costs and inflated room rates that were not mentioned in my reservation confirmation email were quite a shock to the bank account. My advice is to get everything in writing BEFORE you have a heart attack when you get your final bill. Love, Love Hawaii but will never go back to Turtle Bay.

This was our second stay at this resort so I only want to highlight some of the recent changes that might be helpful. See my other review for other details. Our favorite thing about this resort is the convenient proximity to snorkeling and surfing. However, the resort no longer loans snorkel equipment. Big change, plan ahead and bring gear so you don’t get stuck buying cheap stuff at the last second. The resort said they do sell sets , but they were sold out the week we were there. We enjoyed the new pool design. The adult pool is RIGHT next to the main pool, but there is enough separation to make it feel more relaxed. Great food/cocktail service for both. The new main restaurant is excellent for breakfast, try the oatmeal with banana brûlée! Roy’s was awesome as usual. The rooms are in the middle of an update so one whole wing of the resort was not being used(not crowded). The decor is modern and sleek with convenient light and climate controls. All tile floors. No robes in the rooms. No coffee maker, only espresso. Loved the reusable water bottles included with each stay! The lobby now has lots of lounge spots and a new bar. More seating below with lots of spots to take in the sunset. Favorite improvement overall. Great market in the back of the lobby that has food and drinks. Wristband system for room entry/ payment is very convenient. Much harder for kids to lose. Overall, the changes are great (except no snorkels). This place is definitely competitive with the other high end Hawaiian resorts with the rates being commensurate. We paid twice what we did pre covid. Suprised that there are no robes or minibars at this price point, maybe they are coming later.
