We had a really special stay here. It’s a lovely place, very impressive. The staff were great upon arrival and our room was perfect. The views are stunning! There’s a really well stocked convenience shop there which came in very handy multiple times. We felt like we were in a movie staying here and I’d highly recommend.

Hotel's Favourite
Our second trip staying at Turtle Bay and this time in the main hotel (not a bungalow). Booked the upper floor with an amazing view that was worth every penny. Perfect to sit outside and enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon beer and snack or evening cocktail. Room was perfect. Spacious. Modern. Lots of USB ports right by the room. Fridge. Bathroom was spacious as well. No complaints. Remodel has done wonders for the place. The grounds that make up the property are stunning. Lots of walking paths and hiking trails. So much to explore! Some dining options on site but also lots to explore outside. Rent a car and visit the many food trucks nearby – shaved ice, pizza, shrimp, tacos. Support Local! Or even head over to Haleiwa for dinner. Yes, the place can be pricey but everything is pricey on the island. Swing by the local Foodland to stock up on snacks and local beers. A 5 star stay all day! Stay at Turtle Bay!

Our family decided to have a staycation and late birthday celebration) as we never experienced visiting this side of the island as often after living here for over 20 years. As local residents, we were very impressed and appreciated the services and amenities provided at the hotel such as the Pacific Dream on site photography (highlight of our trip), jacuzzi, and the horseback riding (highlight of our trip). Front Desk Services were very in touch and a big help for us as they sent houseman, room service, and the maintenance to our room when requested. Our only comment is that our walk-in shower did not have a door which can cause messes on the floor and the hose option which can be convenient, but that is the structure of the bathroom. We overall had a very good stay and I wish to do use all amenities offered if I have the opportunity to visit again.

I would have given them a 5 but choosing 4 for these . 1. The pool was not heated , in fact colder than the ocean 2. The jacuzzi was 10f hotter 3. The food was a mixed bag and very little menu to choose from However , the interiors were so good . The rooms were recently updated . It’s a very clean resort with good guest profile . The staff is very courteous and efficient . Plenty of things to do

This is about contacting them by phone. Over $1,000 a night, and "the concierge is not available" at 2 in the afternoon. You must be kidding me. Trying to make dining reservations. VERY bad look. It is embarrassing for a high end resort to say they do not have anybody available for such a simple request. I mean, really....

Madison, Wisconsin388 contributions105 helpful votes
This place is amazing. We hoped for the quieter, Hawaiian experience (compared to Waikiki) and DEFINITELY got it. The property is enormous and absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. We walked the expansive property each morning to some incredible scenery. Amazing staff and service. Food and entertainment is great - although somewhat limited, especially after 9pm. Lots of resort activities to choose from. Expensive, but there's always a short drive to the food trucks in Kahuku or Sunset Beach. Luau was great. Only complaint: the property is open to the public, which can lead to some busy beach moments and parking issues. VERY strong recommend.

The concept is one that should be copied. I adored an adult pool as it felt upscale. The grounds are fantastic. There is much to do (if you want to pay for the activities as they are ala carte and expensive) The place was redone during Covid and the vibe fits the scenery. The Buffett for breakfast was not open which disappointed. The choice of restaurants was fair. The Roy's dining was good but again, expensive. Thier restaurant at the golf area was good for pub fare. The bar at the pool served terrific drinks (expensive but the vibe was cool) The dining there was good pub fare as well.

Everything about Turtle Bay exceeded our expectations.

Everyone made us feel special, especially the Ocean Club crew- especially Dakota. We can't wait to visit again- hopefully for a longer stay.

Beautiful location and property. Unlike many resorts on the islands, Turtle Bay has acres of land accessing multiple beaches and trails to hike or bike. You can wander alone in peace if you choose, or enjoy the resort pool or popular cove. Unlike other resorts, the “resort fee” actually comes with useful benefits: beach chairs and umbrellas; use of beach cruisers; golf range balls; etc. Highly recommend going to the Mill for casual eating since the resort offers limited choices and dinner can be pricey. Service was top notch.
