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 had a fantastic time at the Turtle Bay Resort. Rooms clean, facilities were fantastic. Great value with the Sixth floor package, with breakfast and afternoon snacks on our floor. Enjoyed the surfing, snorkeling, and kids slide. Weather in North Shore was a little cooler than other side of island, but it is Hawaii, and it was great.

The hotel grounds and staff were satisfactory. I was very underwhelmed by the activities available for our family and for my kids. Everything was an extra charge, especially since we have many options for hotels of better quality who offer much more. The options for meals felt uninspired, boring, and not worth the cost. Many of the free activities advertised by the hotel had been discontinued which was very disappointing to find out with out kids at the time of the activity.

This is a very nice property with nice, spacious rooms and friendly accommodations. There was only 1 drawback: the staff was totally untrained to deal with the missile false alarm emergency. No one seemed to have a clue as to what to do. Some even seems like they were leaving. Everything else about our stay was top notch.

Beautiful location on the North Shore. We stayed in the main hotel on the vista level and the view was amazing. Spacious clean rooms with the highlight being the shower. We paid extra for the vista level and it was definitely worth it to not have to worry about breakfast and to have the snacks available in the afternoon. Pool area is generally busy but we could always find a spot. We spent most of our swim time at the beach where we could easily get a spot under a tree with some shade. You can see the surfers and the gorgeous sunsets from the pool area. The ocean swimming area was refreshing and a nice little spot to do some snorkelling. Saw a turtle and some fish but the coral is dead. You can also do some exploring on the rocks surrounding the ocean. The resort is about an hour's drive to Waikiki - so close enough to drive in to for some nightlife or other dining options. Would highly recommend this resort although next time - we will try the cottages!!!

Our fifth visit to Turtle Bay and hopefully not our last. Another wonderful trip, from check in to check out. We were a little late arriving there due to a delayed flight and problems at the car rental location so we didn’t get the wing/view we wanted but Foa at reception promised she would do all she could to honor our request the next morning. Even though Foa was off the next morning she left notes for the desk and we were able to move into the east wing facing the point that morning with no issues. You all gave a gold mine in that employee! She even texted me while off to ensure we had been able to move with no problem. Truly excellent customer service! The room was excellent (room 652) but we did notice that the WiFi was intermittent at best. We spent 10 days this trip (Dec 4-14) and just wanted some time to decompress after a year of pressure in our lives. Staying on the 6th floor again we were interested in the changes that had been made since our last visit (2014). The morning breakfast and afternoon pupu’s were an interesting addition but limited in scope. The addition of the concierge dedicated to the sixth floor was excellent and we availed ourselves of her knowledge and help a few times. The room itself was excellent, wonderful view that can’t be beat, spacious with both a soaking tub and huge walk in shower. The beds are the most comfortable I have experienced in a hotel and with my back problems I am very particular. My wife fell in love with the complimentary robe! Very quiet, we never heard another soul the entire time we were there. There was one function on the lawn outside our room but it was relatively quiet and didn’t really disturb us, contrary to other comments that mentioned a lot of noise. Housekeeping was excellent, the room was thoroughly cleaned each day with a complimentary gift (cookies, fruit, etc) left each morning. We are avid coffee drinkers but at first we were left only 2 “K cups” of regular coffee and 2 of decaf (we hate decaf!). My wife left a note asking for just regular coffee and it was never an issue after that. I never was there when housekeeping was in the room so don’t know who to thank but if management can find out who serviced our room during this time frame, please let them know their efforts were greatly appreciated. Unlike previous visits, we didn’t really do too much this visit, it was mostly a getaway from everything type of visit and we were there just to enjoy the island and the resort. We took many leisurely strolls around the extensive grounds just to soak in the scenery, but other than that and some day trips around the island, we didn’t do much. Spent a lot of time on the beach and at the poolside bar. It was nice to see the same crew there that have been there since our first visit in 2008. Vinnie remembered us, which I find amazing given the number of visitors he must see in a year. I guess that means we spend waayyy too much time at the bar! My wife lives for the Lava Flow drinks made there but misses the Green Flash that used to be served. The entertainment at the bar is great and we spent many nights (even the cold ones) enjoying the performances. We didn’t eat too much on the premises but did have the breakfast buffet a few times. I must say that was the most disappointing part of our visit. Selection seems a lot less than in the past and the prices keep going up. The omelette chef seemed to be disinterested in his job and twice made my wife’s omelette incorrectly and undercooked. Luckily the wait staff adjusted the bill to make up for it, which made up for the error. Lei Lei’s is still a wonderful restaurant on the golf course and we ate there many times. Highly recommend it. Every member of the staff were helpful and cheerful and made our stay very enjoyable. Other than that one chef, I can honestly say the staff is some of the best we have encountered in our many years of travel. I just hope the new owners continue to stress excellent customer service. Parking seems to have improved somewhat, we didn’t have the problems parking that we have had in the past but the lot still can get very crowded, especially on a weekend. We did use the valet service and our vehicle was always there, ready to go, whenever we asked for it. The valet staff is excellent, very friendly and efficient. The only issues we had were: 1. The sixth floor breakfast and afternoon snacks are served in the hallway and that seems to be a poor setting to me. I even saw guests from other floors coming up and availing themselves of the food. If this is a “perk” for paying the extra money for a sixth floor room, better control is needed, otherwise what am I paying extra for? The Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island has actually repurposed three rooms and converted them into a large eating area for their “Gold Level” guests. 2. Selection of the breakfast buffet and retraining staff is needed. If I’m going to pat almost $40.00 for a buffet, the price needs to reflect the quality/quantity. 3. Parking passes for guests and designated, ENFORCED parking areas? Visitors to the public beach should not be taking prime resort guest parking. Suggestion: Allow guests to request specific rooms upon booking. Charge me a refundable fee to request a certain room. If I don’t show up, the fee is forfeit. When I do show up, the fee is applied to the room rate. That way I get the room I want but the resort is not out any revenue if I cancel or don’t show up. Foa bent over backwards to get us our requested wing/room and it wasn’t an issue for us but a little inconvenient to move after a day. If the reader has gotten this far in my review, please keep one thing in mind. This is the North Shore. It is not Waikiki. You need a car if you want to get around as most touristy things (Honolulu, Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, etc.) are 45 minutes to an hour away (although it is a drop dead gorgeous drive). The sidewalks roll up early up here, there is not much nightlife. If that is what you want, join the millions of others in Waikiki. Don’t plan on taking a cab from the airport, it will cost you big bucks! The North Shore is much more laid back and a much slower (and very refreshing) lifestyle. True Hawaii! Sent from my iPad
