Turtle Bay Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful hotel,lots of beach access, accommodating and pleasant staff, fast elevators, and gorgeous surrounds (it's Hawaii!).... But, prices in the hotel are exorbitant. A week earlier I was in Phoenix at a Holiday Inn Express. They offered a great breakfast bar, FOR FREE with a room half the price. An almost identical breakfast bar at Turtle Bay cost $70 for my daughter and I. Turtle bay breakfast had fresher tropical fruits and fresh made Cinnamon roles, but that's about the only difference. Drink prices averaged around $15. Best restaurant prices are at the pool bar. The surf bar had advertised happy hour, but when we went, we were told their was a concert tonight (a local band) and it's $35 per person to get in. On the upside, they had very good musical performances at the other bars. They charge you to sit on chairs by the beach! On top of this, they charge an extra $49 a day to your card as a "resort fee". You'd think the resort fee might cover sitting on beach chairs? or include a breakfast bar? a really nice place to stay, but if you care about what you are being charged for, it could bring you down.

It was a great place to stay. The cove was wonderful to snorkel and swim in. The view was awesome. The food was delicious.

I loved everything except the location of the room. I asked for partial ocean view and we ended up facing back of a building and the ocean view was EXTREMELY partial view. It was our 35th anniversary and first time to Hawaii. I was pretty disappointed in the view from the balcony

Dated appearance to lobby. Bed not great but room size adequate. Views great all around. Great gym with great views and tons of yoga etc classes. Not many places outside hotel for a meal or for lunch. But scenery is spectacular.

Rusted taps Blocked toilet Unreliable air conditioning Run down floors and damp smelling carpets Overcrowded pool area Had to pay extra for lounge and umbrella at the beach! All on top of huge five star daily rates for the room!

Hotel is very enjoyable with nice hikes and great amenities. Only two issues; activities are extremely overpriced and the ceiling of our room could use some obvious repairs. Otherwise, the food was delicious and staff was always extremely helpful and courteous. We did the foot golf which was a lot of fun, especially after we stopped following the rules and made up our own games!

We love the north shore and Turtle Bay is the place to stay. Something for everyone, including sun rises to sunsets. We saw turtles and seals on the beach every day. Great water views, surfers, restaurants and an accommodating staff.

Would definitely go back. Perhaps an annual visit!

Fabulous stay. I look forward to the renovations as it is beginning to look tired.

Nice Hotel. Love being away from the bustle of Honolulu. Lots of activities.. we went biking, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking and more.

Everything about Turtle Bay Resort was amazing from the service to the food to the restaurants. You walk right out the door and you are on the beach at the Lagoon or at the swimming pool. They had an adult-only hot tub which I appreciated I was there with my two grown daughters for a girls trip. on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best I would give them a 50. I will be back in 14 months. Already planning my next trip there.

Great hotel. Only issue was the limited number of beach chairs and umbrellas at the beach.

Great views, beach for surfing, beach for snorkeling, great food at all restaurants, staff very attentive, excellent walking and biking trails, activities in the evening, driving distance to cute little towns and fun food trucks. We will be back!!

Was on vacation there from NY with my girlfriend. Amazing place.

My husband and me stayed at Turtle Bay Resort on Feb 3, and we loved this place. Our room is very clean and comfort with good ocean view. The resort actually has 2 types of beaches, one for families to swim and the other for surfers as that one has big waves. Although we don't surf, we had a good time watching people surfing. The resort has several pools and one jakuzi.

Happy friendly staff, Love greeted us at the door and was very helpful and genuine. Would recommend it for others to stay here.

My husband was skeptical because of the word ‘resort’ BUT..... he ended up raving about it!.... we loved the surf/ environmental preserving aspect of the resort, also the fact that small, private beaches were easily accessible within minutes from the main beach. The food choices were also excellent ( we had coffee and fabulous banana bread every morning in bed!) We took advantage of the stables and went on an easy 45 minute horse back ride on our last morning, it was lovely. Also, having the options of eating from any of the excellent local food trucks and stalls minutes down the highway, was amazing.

Very nice resort. Excellent service. Highly recommended.

Everything was wonderful and reasonably priced for a resort of this caliber. My only complaint is the cost of massage services, they are about double what a high end massage normally costs.

2nd time at turtle bay, after this I will never return! Lost my credit on file and wanted to put me out of my room a day early! They put checkout day in wrong! Room cleaned late and cups not replenished! I actually could not wait until my vacation was over! Concierge on vista floor was amazing though Polite and helpful!
