Turtle Bay Resort
- What's Included
My wife and I stayed here for nine days in July of 2017. You certainly would be hard pressed to find a more striking location with views pretty much from every room. On the pool side of the hotel the ocean is best (and mostly used) for surfers (it also has the Opana WW II radar plaque marking it's role in Pearl Harbour - Google it as it is interesting). The other side of the hotel is more the swim/ snorkel side. A few observations:Hotel parking is easy enough, bell staff friendly enough (check-in staff much less so, having dealt with three or four over the time it was clear they wanted to be working somewhere else). We stayed on the Vista level (it was our 25th anniversary so we wanted to do something really nice). This was to ensure we had a walk-out patio and a few other things (the level does have an ok breakfast/ snack buffet) however my guess is 80% of the hotel rooms have walk-out patios. Special note - there are two kinds of patio's, the first (which is given to rooms not on the pool side) has only enough room for a small table and two chairs (picture attached). We started with this one (as who knew??) but due to an A/C failure in the room we moved after the first night and ended up with a much more useful second patio style where you had more than enough room for chairs, foot stools, tables etc, for us, this was the ideal one (it is the patio they show in the Vista advertisement so that tells you something). One thing that surprised me is when we had to move I could not borrow a bell person baggage handling cart - they said they had to accompany it (??)As to the non-pool side beach, you can rent a cabana (there are three) for $75 a day (includes a few chairs and a mattress to relax on and be out of the sun). Otherwise there are umbrellas and chairs for guest use (at no fee, just be there in time). We often rented the cabana and grabbed a sandwich from the lobby bar and that took care of the day (Roy's Beach House is the place for dinner, without exception but test the others if you feel the need).They do have a bar in the hotel the 'surfer bar', for evening entertainment, however the Friday/ Saturday we were they they had a $10 cover charge (I would expect my room cost to cover that) and they were closed Sunday so? Overall things were ok, but they could do so much more with simply changing a few approaches and getting some better trained staff (can you train a person to be happy?)
From the moment we picked up the car rental and were told to drive H3 to 83 we were in awe of the lush Hawaiian scenery! Then we drove up to check in to Turtle Bay and from the moment we stepped out of the car we were enjoying a beautiful vacation. The hotel staff was so nice and accommodating. They valet service was the absolute best! Check in was easy, and our room had a magnificent ocean view! Our family had a room adjacent and our 15, and 11 year old grandsons absolutely loved how easy it was to get from the room to the pool to the ocean etc. They had a nice variety of breakfast items in the lobby bar or you could dine in one of the restaurants. You never had to hustle to get a chair by the pool and the bar in the evening was perfect for a great Mai Tai and fabulous Sunset! The Food Trucks are the BOMB! Some of the best meals were at at Sharks Cove at the Food Trucks! Ted's a few miles down the road is great for pastries and breakfast.We will be back and sooner than later! Don't think about it! Just Go!
This resort is outstanding. The views are incredible. The staff worked hard to make sure visitors are comfortable. It is a drive from the airport. But once you have arrived you will be comfortable. Horseback riding on the attached trails, helicopter rides on the attached helipad, golf on the attached greens, at least 4 different restaurants, pool beach and spa treatment are all at the guests disposal. Make sure your finances are right because it all comes with a nice price tag. Definitely worth it overall.
If you ever decide to stay at Turtle Bay, don't ever wander off and stay at the resort! They have tons to do there and a big property to explore. We made the mistake of checking in at night and leaving in the morning. Wish we could have enjoyed the property a little more. Free snorkel gear too. Will definitely be back.
This is our second visit to this beautiful hotel and our visit was just as special as the first time. The views from the rooms are spectacular and the rooms themselves are clean and elegant. The beach is great to swim at and hotel provides free snorkel sets for a few hours Sadly the turtles have left. You need to get to the beach very early about 7.30 if you want an umbrella. Sadly, as in many hotels, rude people reserve be beach chairs and disappear for a few hours. Luckily this doesn't happen at the pool. Perhaps a few more umbrellas at the beach would help.The hotel foyer area is quite beautiful, spacious and airy with a cafe where you can buy "real" coffee. A bonus. Two great golf courses as well and lovely tropical beautifully maintained surrounds. If you have a car drive out to the amazing food trucks near Haiwa and Lei. Brilliant inexpensive diverse food trucks are a must. Several supermarkets are also relatively close by car if you want snacks etc
