I honestly had a great time at turtle bay. We attended a "Wig Shindig" and it was amazing! The next day we hung out at the pool all day. The pool staff was very accommodating! I made a point to remember Nate's name, he was very informative and helpful.

This was our third time at Turtle Bay and it just keeps getting better and better. Great hotel and grounds, beautiful renovated rooms and world class dining. True paradise. Ate at Ola almost every night. Dinner on the beach never gets old. Can't wait to book our fourth visit! Mahalo!!

Last month I wrote a review about my stay at turtle bay. We stayed at turtle bay this weekend and I have to say this was a much better experience.

I really did enjoy my stay.. Mainly due to the spectacular view and peacefulness of the north shore, but I really expected so much more for what we paid. We stayed 3 nights in Waikiki at the Hilton Waikiki Beach. The staff there were so much more friendly and accommodating. We chose 2 nights at Turtle Bay to relax and...

I wish we hadn't bothered to go back, we found the hotel nothing like as good as we did last time. Here's a few tips for the owners, if I may be so bold. 1) When people pay in advance for breakfasts (and a lot of money as well) don't treat like them like paupers when they attend breakfasts and...

My husband and I stayed at Turtle Bay from 3/24-3/27 after spending 5 days in Waikiki at the Outrigger on the Beach. We opted to stay in one of the Beach Cottages. It was absolutely beautiful. The bathroom and tub were gorgeous and we absolutely loved the outdoor patio, hammocks, and overall ambiance. However, I'd argue the "direct beach access"...

We were fortunate to really EXPERIENCE Turtle Bay Resort. We normally stay on Waikiki and had never stayed at Turtle Bay before.

Far removed from the bustling tourist mecca of Waikiki is the sleepy little town of Kahuku where the local population is a little more laid back and agricultural land is still passed down through the generations.
