Turtle Bay Resort in Kahuku, Hawaii

If Turtle Bay Resort's idyllic locale looks familiar, you might have seen Magnum P.I., the original Hawaii Five-O or Forgetting Sarah Marshall – all of them filmed at Oahu's fabled North Shore. The resort unveiled newly renovated rooms in 2014 that utilize cool Polynesian colors and natural rattan. Chase your pipeline dreams at one of world's premier surf schools or wander to the privacy of a windswept beach. Part of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, Turtle Bay's waters offer sanctuary to whales, monk seals, green turtles and dolphins.

Go for a morning run on 12 miles of seaside paths through marshes, beaches and Banyan forests. Keep an eye out for sea turtles basking in the sun. Check out what's happening on the Banzai pipeline – if it's wintertime, waves could reach 50 feet. Retreat to calmer waters to relax or paddle board. Feast on Kona coffee-rubbed rack of New Zealand lamb overlooking the churning tide at Pa'akai restaurant.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

Although I wasn’t entirely sure about Turtle Bay Resort before we arrived, I came away with a definite appreciation for this gem. If you can get past the old-school architecture and the lack of some amenities found in newer properties, and accept a few of its quirks, there is a lot to like here. Highlights: Setting! Usually, I would term this location, but I’m a bit mixed on the actual location. It is a pretty long drive from the airport and a lot of the sights. And the parking is a bit of a hassle (unless you valet, which I don’t do unless I am forced). But the setting is exquisite. We had a sunset view room on the inside of the “V” – pretty sure we faced north. Our room did overlook the roof of a building before opening up to green space and the ocean. Think some had commented negatively about the roof view. But given the panorama beyond, I had no complaints. They had even dressed up the roof with a geometric design in decorative rock. No complaints. The sunsets were nothing short of incredible. If you can get a sunset room, you will want to be in your room at sunset each evening. The small resort beach is nice. Rooms – spacious, comfortable and nicely laid-out. Full balconies are adequate. Half-moon balconies looked pretty confined. We took an offer to upgrade to Vista level a couple of weeks before arrival, which was nice. Not sure the top floor location provided significantly better views, but the breakfast and afternoon snacks were nice (though we missed snack time a couple of the three days). One miss in the room was the single-paneled glass “barn door” in the bathroom that closed either the toilet closet or the shower, but not both at the same time. Ours was not perfectly balanced and would close toward the shower. A plus was the lighted cosmetic mirror (only lighted one of the three 4-5 star resorts we stayed on our trip). Some pictures online give the impression the bathroom includes double vanities, which is not the case. Vanity space is adequate, but there is only one sink. Value – of the three resorts where we stayed on this vacation (including 2 on Kauai), TBR was by far the best value. Took advantage of their 25% off for early booking and accepted the Vista upgrade offer for a very reasonable total rate. Dining – limited experience on this. We selected Kula Grille our first night. Fairly broad menu with nice views and good service (the hostess is great!). Liked it so well we went back a second time and ordered the same thing. Didn’t care for the menu for Roy’s or Pa’akai, so did not try them. Quality and value (for Hawaii) at Kula Grille were excellent, so would recommend it. Since we stayed on the Vista level, continental breakfast was offered. Breakfast offerings were fairly light, but definitely adequate for us. If you like a full not breakfast, you would be disappointed. Negative would be that it is set up in a hallway with only a couple of tables. So most took their food back to the room, which is fine. Except that they don’t really provide anything to help transport the food and drinks. Some guests used a wooden tray from the room, which was not a bad idea. Beach – nice beach with fairly course sand. Primary complaint is that the number of individual loungers was pretty restrictive, though there were plenty of rental units available. And availability of umbrellas was inadequate. This was not the only resort where we encountered this, so maybe it is an issue in Hawaii. But who goes to Hawaii for the beach anyway?! Far better beaches much closer to home, and too many sights to see and things to do. So just get out and enjoy. But tip to the resort – have enough individual loungers for your guests. Intangibles – the 60s architecture with wide hallways and long, horizontal lines is actually refreshing. Lobby is open and airy and nothing feels cramped. During our stay, there was a Hawaiian Monk Seal that had beached itself. Learned that they are a protected species on the rebound, and they are known to hang out on a beach for days. Although it wasn’t turtle nesting season, and no whales, there was still an educational wildlife opportunity. Summary This is a great resort with a lot of charm. If you want an option on Oahu’s north shore, TBR can’t be beat. Would highly recommend and would not hesitate to choose again if we return to Oahu.

Let's just say that what stood out about Turtle Bay Resort was that every employee we encountered went beyond our expectations. Our housekeeper greeted us each day and made conversation, our waitress at Kula Grille gave us a back story on the North Shore, and the Guide Post staff had endless options on activities to plan for our time there. What we loved about the resort: Location - The resort sits right on the water so every room in the hotel has an ocean view - and the view is spectacular. Though, keep in mind that depending on the day, the waves crashing on shore may be loud, but it was all worth it because it is the fabled North Shore! Pool - The pool area is right on the water, so it also has a spectacular view of the ocean. In the evenings, order drinks at the pool bar and watch the beautiful sunset. Also, the hotel usually has a band playing in the evenings. Hiking - There are plenty of trails on property, so just ask for a map from the Guide Post. Trek to the old banyan tree or to the WWII pill box, and make sure to bring your camera. Cove - On the east side of the hotel, there is a cove for hotel guests where the water is calm enough for snorkeling and swimming. What we wish was different: Laundry - After hiking, snorkeling and general outdoor activities, it would've been nice to have a guest laundry room to clean up our clothes before heading to our next Hawaiian destination. Thankfully, our next hotel had a laundry room.

Booked this for my 13 yr old daughter to do she loved it. Staff was very friendly horses where well behaved. Ride takes you around the shoreline allow for some very nice pictures. Ride was a fun way for her to start her day.

He stayed at the Resort for my husband's 40th birthday. The experience was amazing!!! From the kind, warm and friendly valet staff that helped us with our luggage and two small sleeping children to the beyond stunning view from our room it all made for a truly memorable experience. I loved the holiday atmosphere with the musicians that played each night at the pool side bar to the happy and particularly friendly staff. We couldn't have enjoyed our time here anymore than what we did!

The staff at the Turtle Bay Resort was amazing! Everyone who worked for this oasis was professional, helpful, and so friendly from the staff at the restaurants to the people in the gift store and at the Guidepost. Amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away while staying somewhere that has many activities to choose from.
