Can't wait to return! ”

We're from Australia, and we just had our honeymoon in Hawaii and spent the last 5 nights at Turtle Bay Resort. We loved it! Reception staff were lovely, the staff at breakfast were all friendly and really kind and efficient at Kula Grille. We had breakfast included in our booking, which was continental buffet - lots to choose from. And you could upgrade to the full buffet for a very reasonable price if you wanted to. The staff at Roy's were great. We enjoyed many cocktails (try the Hawaiian Martini) at the bar at Roy's, and had a really great dinner there too. Also had a great dinner at Lei Lei's, and the staff there also great. Lots of really great meals. A gym that overlooks the ocean, and a great pool. I didn't swim in the pool as there is the beach right there also. There's a great shop there to buy a sandwich or drinks (including a bottle of wine, and beer/ciders for very reasonable prices) if you were just wanting a causal snack or night in. Room service also available. We stayed in a junior king suite in the 6th floor and we had beautiful views. And we loved our suite. The housekeeping staff were lovely too. Looking forward to returning for our first year wedding anniversary. Can't wait in fact .... thank you Turtle Bay Resort! Looking forward to seeing you again!! Richard and Marsha Wyles.

Great Service! Superb location! Love it!”

Super nice staffs. Location. Cleanliness.

We stayed at Turtle Bay Resort just one night. It was our Anniversary trip. At night after we came back from Polynesian Cultural Center, they surprised us with a bottle of Champagne. We drove around the island and changed hotel every night. Nights before we arrived Turtle Bay Resort, we stayed at Marriot and Hilton. Not even one person said Happy Anniversary(Of course, they knew! We have informed them when we booked the room). Turtle Bay Resort gave importance to our memorable trip. We really appreciated it. We will definitely choose to stay at the Turtle Bay Resort for next Oahu visit. Staffs are super nice from front desk to room service. Wish Turtle Bay Resort would maintain this Service minded culture. Love this place!

Beautiful, but Pricey”

Our son was married on a beach near Turtle Bay. We stayed in Honolulu most of the week, but joined the rest of the family at Turtle Bay for the day of the wedding and overnight. We would have enjoyed being there longer but could not justify the cost. Booking through Agoda did save us money. Our room was very nice. We had a beautiful ocean view. Unfortunately we were unable to take advantage of the amenities and activities (for which we paid an additional, required daily resort fee of $40). Our day was taken up with preparation and the wedding. We had a wonderful meal at Roy's after the wedding. We enjoyed the buffet for breakfast, upgrading to the full buffet. Our deal through Agoda included a continental breakfast...the $7.95 upgrade was a good value. The menu price for the buffet was $34! Everyone we interacted with was friendly and helpful.

Loved the North Shore and the Turtle Bay Resort! ”

We stayed at the Turtle Bay Resort 1/6- 1/9. This was the only place we stayed on Oahu, we opted for the quieter North Shore vs Waikiki. We loved the resort- all of the staff is very friendly, and there are so many things to do! There are several good food options (pricey, but very good- and everything in Hawaii is pricey). We had dinner at Lei Lei’s twice, Kayla was the best waitress!! When we stayed at the resort, we opted for the beach over the pool. We rented snorkel equipment and saw a big sea turtle right in the bay. We could see whales breeching out in the water right from shore. Our room had a breathtaking ocean view, and great shutters that let air and the sound of the waves in, but kept the light and creatures out at night! We had an issue with a waitress at the beach bar and Mike the Food and Beverage manager was awesome and fixed the issue immediately! We would definitely return to Turtle Bay and recommend it to others.

Good Location away from Waikiki. ”

We spent 3 nights here out of our 11 night O'ahu trip. Just enough. You should have a car to see things around area as not in a town. All the rooms seem to have good outlooks due to the clever orientation. Ours was partial ocean view and was still fantastic. The room is large, clean and comfortable. There is a great gym with views. A very good pool. On the SW side of resort is turtle bay with great surfing. A good point break and some reef breaks. I had two good surfs here in solid waves. On other side is a a protect small bay (no waves) with great snorkelling on rock and coral reef. Heaps of fish. And occasional turtle. The in house restaurants are $$$. But not far away is the food trucks (10mins) just north of the town of Laie. But they close at 6:30pm. There is a famous shrimp truck. But we preferred Thong Thai truck. Very good. In Laie there is a strip mall and cinema. Some value eating options here as well. You can visit the Momon temple in Laie. Visit all the north shore breask.

Turtle Bay Resort was absolutely beautiful! The hotel, grounds, pool, restaurants, hiking trails, exercise facilities & exceptional staff were wonderful! We had a blast! Everywhere you look the ocean views are breathtaking! Really enjoyed dining twice at Lei Lei's restaurant on the golf course! Also, enjoyed North Shore Giovanni's food truck shrimp & Ted's bakery! Decided last minute to attend Polynesian Cultural center luau & it was a nice buffet with good shows! We decided to explore Waikiki- Honolulu first, then relax at Turtle Bay! It was a great decision!

Perfect holiday destination! As a first time visitor to Hawaii, I could not have been happier to be on Oahus North Shore in comparison to the tourist-laden Waikiki. Turtle Bay made for the ideal relaxed beach holiday - gorgeous beach within the resort with easy access to so many more around the bay, a great selection of eateries so we were never bored, a wonderful view from every room of the hotel, lovely service from all staff, to list a few highlights. If you are after a true vacation - Turtle Bay is your answer. We will be back!

Great relaxing stay”

Great 10 day stay at the Turtle Bay resort. We had a great time and staff were friendly. We loved sitting by the beach and seeing all the wildlife. The pool was great too, however it seemed to be in a wind tunnel! Hiring a car and driving to the resort was straight forward and there was ample parking. The room we stayed in was titled 'epic partial view of the ocean' it truly was epic and the sounds of the waves at night and in the morning was the best! Thanks everyone at Turtle Bay for a great experience!

Perfect honeymoon destination”

Turtle Bay Resort is the perfect honeymoon destination! The location is an hours drive from the airport and located on beautiful lush grounds with many walking trails to explore and breathtaking views of the beach and sunset. You'll find everything you'll need at this resort from casual to fine dining restaurants, golf, swimming pool, safe swimming beaches, convenience store and tour desk. The staff made our stay extremely enjoyable. The front desk staff were able to check us in 6 hours earlier than check in time as we'd just come off a 10 hour flight. We loved our stay here and would definitely come back!

We just needed a hotel room for a day, so decided to splurge a little and book a night at Turtle Bay. The drive up from Honolulu International Airport is gorgeous, driving past views Hawaii is known for. The drive was also quite expensive by taxi as the resort is at a pretty secluded area (about $100+). Check in was smooth even though we arrived earlier than the check in time, and when it seemed quite busy for the resort. Within 10 minutes, we were escorted to our room and enjoying the beach view from our balcony. Food was quite pricey, and even though it was all quite good, can't say the value for the price was there. However, thoroughly enjoyed the cocktails, particularly by the pool area. There was a lot of people checked in, but it never seemed too crowded, even by the pool area. There was always a spot to sit and relax, and enjoy the view. :) All in all, it was an excellent stay even just for the night. One downside however is that it is quite secluded. We wanted to head out to Haleiwa but proved a bit difficult to get a cab or any ride out into town. If we could afford it, we'd love to go back and stay longer!

The staff were very welcoming and friendly which made me feel at home. The meals at the restaurants were fresh & delicious.

Our room overlooked the ocean, the room felt very spacious and had a wonderful walk-in shower, the bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious. We ate at the poolside bar and the Ola restaurant. I wasn't overly impressed with the food for the price. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of the North Shore. The pool area is great and did not feel over crowded. There is beach access right on the resort. We even saw them filming a movie while we were there! I don't think I would stay anywhere else on the North Shore!

Magnificent ocean vistas complemented by a stunning pool. Dinner on the lanai overlooking the ocean with fabulous music creates a romantic evening celebration.

We felt rejuvenated, rested, and ready to take on the world again after our too brief interlude. We loved going for walks, stopping to take in the gorgeous teal, turquoise, and green ocean colors. The fitness center had stunning views to enjoy while getting in extra exercise sessions. Warm and friendly staff assisted us in planning our time. The pool was warm!!!! What a joy to behold!
