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.

Ill start off with the good because there are some good things at turtle bay . The location is amazing . There isn't another hotel like it in the north shore . The views are great and the grounds are great . You definitely need a car if you are planning on enjoying Oahu outside of the resort because everything is about 20 minutes away . The staff at the valet are awesome , very polite and welcoming. The bad : For a hotel of this price I would expect wayyyyyyy more. I found it to be very crowded with children which was suprising. I love children but when im on my honeymoon trying to enjoy hawaii with my and i cant get into the pool because 15 kids are splashing everywhere isnt fun. My room had ants . Alot of them . I called guest services ( they took 5 minutes to answer the phone ) they sent up someone with a spray bottle . That was it . Guess what , the ants came back ! I tried calling guest services again . No answer for 3 minutes . The room i would give it a 5/10 , its outdated and worn. A/C is very loud also. The customer service is extremely lacking at this resort . The food , the breakfast buffet is by far the biggest rip off ive ever seen in my life . 32$ per person for a buffet that i would give a 2/10 stars . Dont waste your money . There are tons of other places around . The other restaurants in the hotel are just way too pricey. We didn't even bother because we were so turned off by the buffet. There are plenty of great restaurants in haliwea do yourself a favour and take the drive you won't regret it . Everything is extremely overpriced, the resort fee of 40$ a day is ridiculous considering what you are already paying . Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone unless you feel like wasting your money on an extremely subpar stay. I was extremely surprised to see all the great reviews this resort got , it is far from great.

This was the most peaceful vacation I've had. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful when planning our day and answering our questions. The beach was beautiful and not crowded at all. I can't wait to go back!

We stayed here with recommendations from friends for 7 days and were not disappointed. We can't say enough good about the Resort and all it's wonderful facilities and things to do. You don't even have to leave the resort to enjoy a wonderful stay. The staff were all so welcoming and friendly and if you need anything, you only have to ask them. Tip: check where the sun will be setting for the time of year you are going to get the best room with a sunset view. But then again you can sit at the poolside bar, have food and a drink and also watch the surfers and glorious sunsets. AAA+ rating from this happy couple!

After our first couple hours at Turtle Bay, I was chiding myself for not doing due diligence, and dreading the next six days. This may have had something to do with the fact that we had been up since 2:00 AM EDT, endured 10+ hours on a plane traveling across the entire US and half the Pacific to get there, been seated next to 5 drunk guys at the poolside grill whose vocabulary consisted almost entirely of the F bomb, and then had to put up with the poolside music that sounded as if the group was right in the room with us, even though our balcony door was closed tight! I'm happy to say that after a good night's sleep, and a chance to explore around the resort and the north shore, my perspective changed completely, and I can say that we really enjoyed our 6 nights at Turtle Bay. We were in a Vista room on the 6th floor, overlooking the pool. The room, and the entire resort, is updated, clean, comfortable, and very well maintained. The couple times we needed assistance from Housekeeping (including once to replace our malfunctioning coffee maker), they responded very promptly (within 10 minutes). The reception staff is friendly and accommodating. Vista rooms come with a "light continental breakfast" and afternoon snacks. The "light" continental breakfast is just that; light. But it is sufficient to get the day started. Afternoon snacks are even lighter. Don't book Vista for the breakfast and snacks. The concierge that is available during breakfast and afternoon snacks is very helpful. There are many things to do around the resort offered through then onsite activity center, including bike rentals, Segway tours of the property, horseback riding, etc. We took advantage of the bike rentals (reasonable and a nice way to explore the property) and a Segway tour. Tour was very nice; however, it's expensive, and geared towards the least experienced person in the group. My wife and I are experienced riders, and would have preferred a little more fast paced and adventurous experience. Two caveats: My wife and I are empty nesters, and incline more towards quiet, romantic, experiences. I'm not saying you can't get that at Turtle Bay, but you have to work at it. There were a lot of families (appropriately!) as well as a lot of 20 something partiers. (We were there in mid-May.) If you're looking for someplace quiet and romantic, Turtle Bay may not be the place for you. Second: "Penny Pincher" is an adjective that is never used to describe me. I have no problem paying a premium for quality, and Turtle Bay does provide a quality experience. However, Turtle Bay is expensive, even by my standards, particularly the restaurants. The only offsite eateries anywhere close are food trucks and shacks, so if you want a nice meal, the restaurants at the resort are the only option. The food and service is excellent, but at very steep prices.

This resort has it all and we had a great time. Try the Sunset horse back ride for a great time. The food on the property was quite good. The beach and pool were nice. The waterslide was fun. It is a non-smoking property, so smokers congregate around set places which can be annoying when walk by. BUT we were sent to Sharks Cove nearby to snorkel (which is excellent). There our rental car was stolen. DO NOT LEAVE CAR KEYS ON BEACH! If you leave the property, be sure to take your car keys with you in a waterproof pouch.
