Turtle Bay Resort
- What's Included
This is a great place to stay if you do not want the hustle and bustle of big city Honolulu. The rooms have excellent views--we overlooked the bay. They have a nice pool and beach. The down side is you are a good plus hours drive to Pearl harbor and other attractions, but I find it is worth the peace and quiet for a couple of days before island hopping.
The staff went above and beyond to make our stay at Turtle Bay amazing. Big thanks to James at the bell desk/valet and to Cherae at the check in for making us feel welcome and excited to be there!!!!!
I was extremely impressed with the quality of this resort. The rooms were very large, and they all have fantastic views. The staff were all very friendly, and we found nothing to complain about. It was also a great break from the hustle and bustle of Oahu.
Our stay was brief, but pretty fabulous. We stayed in one of the beach bungalows and the view was simply amazing. It was so nice to hear the rain and waves crashing right outside our door. The grounds were impeccable with amazing smelling flowers everywhere. We had fun collecting lotus flowers. The air was crisp, clean, and aromatic. They seemed to think of everything, with bottles of water, slippers, beach towels, robes, a sarong, binoculars, and Beats by Dre speakers, a safe, and they even had umbrellas in the closet. The room had high ceilings with fans and decorative island paddle accents. The little details made it so fun. The concierge brought us Lei's and fresh juice, ice, and nuts. The bed was comfortable, as were the linens. The wood flooring was a little scraped and worn and we had an uninvited visitor of a giant roach in the corner of the room near the door that hung out by the curtains. He hid for part of the day and returned for the remainder of our stay. We mentioned it to our concierge who nonchalantly said we could call housekeeping if he came back, which we did not bother to do since we got back to the room in the middle of the night and just resigned ourselves to the situation..deciding that the left side of the room was his and the right side was ours.The bathroom was huge, clean, and heavenly with a giant tub with a mirrored wall next to it, full bottles of the best smelling shampoo and conditioner that you will ever find-which is sold by the hotel spa, and they have all the little extras like a hamper and hair dryer. We loved our daily visits from the community cats! The porch was so nice to relax on and there were many nearby hammocks too. Even though there were several other beach houses nearby, we rarely saw anyone else, so it was like having an island paradise all to ourselves. The staff was kind enough to offer to take our photos on the grounds too.A short 5 minute walk through the boardwalk to the main resort and we checked out the hottube and lagoon pool briefly. The pool closed a bit early, but we were told sometimes they allow people to stay in later and we were able to swim briefly without a problem. I attempted to do my laundry, but you needed coins or cash and the restaurants and shops were closed to be able to make change. If you are a late night eater, the restaurants at the resort are not the best option, but they do have a nice room service was a good option. The meals were expensive, but pretty fancy. The fruit plate was perfect.We took advantage of the swimming by the hotel. It was a nice beach, and much more hospitable than the rocky area outside our bungalow.Keep in mind, the resort is gigantic, and the only resort on the island, to my knowledge. You may have to park and walk a bit of a ways from your room, though they do have valet. There are tons of things to see and do on site, but driving around the North Shore Community and eating at the local foodtrucks nearby is a lot of fun too, and a nice economical option. We learned too late that there was even an option to rent a go-pro camera. We did not see any sea turtles while we we here, but did spot one in another area of the North Shore.In summary, we loved our trip, but we were pretty disappointed about the roach and our attempts to provide feedback during and after our stay that had little impact. I would rarely expect a bug of this size (several inches) in any hotel room, and I would be willing to forgive it since we were seaside, if it were not for the fact that we spent a lot of money for this room and the problem was not handled well. That being said, all the staff we encountered were very nice and we really enjoyed enough things about the trip that we would totally stay again, hopefully without the extra guest next time.
From the moment we arrived everything about our stay at Turtle Bay was great! We split our time between two nights in a vista room and two nights in a cottage. Both experiences were fantastic. The Vista room had a great view, wonderful fresh baked banana bread and good fresh fruit as part of the continental breakfast served each morning. The bathroom was huge and gorgeous. The cottage was wonderful. It was disappointing that one does not get a complimentary breakfast when staying in a cottage but the rooms was great, the lanai and hammock on the grass right next to the beach was even better. We could hear the noise from the pool area in our vista room but no noise at the cottage. The snorkeling was fantastic. Our dinner at Lei Lei's was delicious. Best prime rib my husband has ever had. All of the staff were fantastic. Everyone really seemed to care about making sure we were having a great time.
