Turtle Bay Resort (DNU) in Oahu

Open your eyes to breathtaking beauty at Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu's fabled North Shore, featuring sweeping views of the glittering Pacific Ocean in every guest room. From the 12 miles of ocean trails - great for horseback rides, Segway tours, hiking and biking - to water adventures such as surfing and stand-up paddleboarding, enjoy it all in 5-star splendor at Turtle Bay Resort. Situated on nearly five miles of pristine beachfront, this celebrated resort is in the heart of it all. Easy access to epic surf, majestic scenery and ancient history are simply a given here, but the North Shore is also renowned for its legendary beaches, quaint shops and cafés housed in plantation-era buildings. From tropical orchards and the world-class botanical gardens at Waimea Valley, to the colorful atmosphere of Haleiwa town, there are endless options for recreation both in and out of the warm Pacific waters.

During your stay at Turtle Bay Resort, wake to a delicious buffet breakfast at Palm Terrace, then take an early morning tee time at either the Fazio or Arnold Palmer golf courses, or relax with a massage at Spa Luana. In the afternoon, make your way to the beach to swim, snorkel and kayak before taking some surfing lessons and hitting the waves like a pro. Hike along beautifully lush trails or take in the island's wonder from high above with an exciting helicopter tour. Enjoy a delightful horseback riding adventure through Kawela Bay as the sun begins to go down, and return to the resort that night for the perfect dinner. Dine on wonderful Italian cuisine at Leonardo's or visit 21 Degrees North to taste scintillating contemporary Hawaiian cuisine. For nightlife, you will find the brand new Surfer, The Bar to be a more than enticing option. With the moon shimmering across the surf just outside your window, drift off to sleep that night dreaming of your next day's adventures at Turtle Bay Resort.

We loved our stay at Turtle Bay. The beachfront cottage was perfect for our honeymoon. The staff was great, and we had an amazing time. We tried several activities and restaurants while there, and everything was good. It was nice that parking was included in the resort fee, we were able to rent a car and take some day trips as well.

We stayed here for one night on Sunday 11 June and we loved it! We were able to check-in a few hours early and our room had an amazing view of the pool, the beach and the sunset. All staff we dealt with were extremely friendly and helpful. In less than the 24 hours we spent at Turtle Bay we went snorkelling and explored majority of the property. We would definitely like to stay here again.

I would give this place 2.5 stars out of 5. It is nestled in the beautiful north shore of Oahu and it seemed like all of the rooms had amazing views. We paid for the "Vista Level Ocean View" room which I believe to be a mistake. This package did include some things we used - late check out (12pm vs 10am I believe), free snorkel equipment and daily continental breakfast - but other than that I do not think the added price was worth it. It was over $100 additional a night for the 4 days that we had booked. I thought that the "Top Floor" view would be worth it alone but unfortunately the balcony was too small for me and my girlfriend to relax and enjoy the views. I noticed that the rooms on the north side and the pool side had much larger balconies and I do believe those rooms were cheaper. The inside of the room was great. Beautiful shower and bath and lots of room. Bed was comfortable, TV was large. The AC was hit or miss, some days it was very cold in the room but others it did not seem to be working. The AC unit was leaking so maybe it needed to be repaired. It was not a big problem since we were outside most of the day so we did not report it to the housekeepers. The biggest issue I had with Turtle Bay Resort was SUNLIGHT. The first morning we were awakened by the rising sun at around 6:30AM! This is not ideal when you are on vacation. The sliding wood doors they had in our room were sort of like blinds but you were not able to close them vertically, they were fixed in a position that allowed a great deal of light into the room. I called to the front dest to see if they had any shades or curtains that we could put up and the said they were "out of them". I was very disappointed to be up so early after such a long day of travel and was shocked that a resort of this magnitude (and price) was going to do nothing about it. Thankfully I received a call back from the front desk a few minutes later saying that they were going to send someone up to our room to "fix it". The solution was duct tape and some bed sheets - I am not kidding. The women who came to the room to tape up the sheets were extremely pleasant and funny - but it was sadly laughable that an upscale resort was duct taping sheets up to block sunlight from coming into a room. After about 30 minutes they had the sheets up and the room was dark. Unfortunately the tape on the doors didn't allow us to open them at all. I did not want to have to have them re-tape it so we left it for the time being. That afternoon we returned to the room and the sheets had fallen down and the room was so bright once again. I tried to tape them back up so we could take a nap but they just kept falling down. This continued for the next two nights. It wasn't until our last night there (4th night) that we received some sort of proper curtain. The beach next to the resort was great, no real waves so good for kids. I did see some turtles. There was also a very large seal (I believe) that was sleeping on the beach. They have an area blocked off so people do not disturb it but you are still able to get pretty close which was cool. We found the food at the pool bar to be a nice option for lunch. We had dinner at Kula Grill a few times as well which was spectacular. The in room dining was not what I expected for the price at all. I ended up ordering spaghetti from the kids menu a few times because the other options just were not worth the price. Overall this is a beautiful resort in an amazing location. The staff was very friendly and did their best to make our stay enjoyable - which despite the problems we had it was indeed enjoyable. I just wish that they would have fixed the lighting problem a little more efficiently. I know that we were not the first people to ever complain about this, I can't imagine most people like to wake up when the sun rises while on vacation. And the fact that they had no more curtains when we requested some suggests that many guests did complain. If that problem was fixed I would've given Turtle Bay Resort at least 4 stars. The experience just did not live up to the price we paid.

OK, we are a family of 4, 2 adults, 2 children (7 Y/olds). Decided to stay at Turtle Bay Resort 4 nights to break up our Hawaii holiday from Waikiki. Over all we loved Turtle Bay Resort. We couldn't fault it, clean, well appointed and friendly helpful staff. First thing you will need is a hire a car. The car gave us freedom to come and go and do our own thing, especially when it came to meals and sightseeing. Turtle Bay, is a little isolated from anything approx 1 hours drive from Waikiki on H1 & H2 and 8 miles from nearest town of Haleiwa, worth a visit!. The resort restaurants and bars are not cheap, throw in mandatory tipping and the AUS $ exchange rate and it can get out of hand pretty quick, especially with children. eg, Tacos for 3, a wine and a beer by the pool, approx. $70 AUS. We didn't eat in any of the 7 restaurants after that, opting for the food caravans approx. 5 km down the road which serve great 'hawker type' food at a fraction of the cost of the resort. There are also heaps of dining and shopping options to expore in nearest surf town of Haleiwa. We had a family suite which turned out to be a twin room with a king bed and a separate sofa (kids) which was made up in what would have normally been a small TV, lounge room. The room was well appointed with ocean views and balcony. On top of the nightly room rate ($489USD) you also pay a resort fee ($40USD). This includes services such as room WI-FI, in room tea and coffee, fitness centre access, business center access, beach chairs etc, etc, stuff that you would normally include in a room rate in Oz. There is heaps to do, all at additional costs including surfing $15US p/hour, paddle boarding, snorkelling in a protected lagoon, mountain biking $30US p/hour, great jogging trails, horse riding, 2 beautiful golf courses (Fazio and Palmer course), Heli tours, Kinetic Spa and a couple of retail shops in the lobby area. Just down the road is the famous Banzai Pipeline, Waimea Bay and Sunset beach just to name a few. Great resort and location, start saving and get a hire car :).

This was our third two-day visit to the Turtle Bay Resort, staying in the Beachfront Cottages which are perhaps unequalled at this price range anywhere in Hawaii. We live here and love the old, original Hawaii hotels but getting away from it all to Turtle Bay is a refreshing change. Visitors are always charmed by the setting, the views, and the layout of the resort. Restaurants are also top class.
