Turtle Bay Resort
- What's Included
Beautiful view, good food, wonderful accommodations. The North Shore is full of beautiful shorelines. There are many activities on site and nearby. Live music at the pool bar is a nice touch. I only wish we could have stayed longer.
We came and had five nights here.We've been unlucky with the weather with most days quite wet. Yesterday was the first opportunity to sit by the pool - but the restaurant and bar area by the pool was roped off from lunch time for a private function and no poolside service was available. We have three children and rented a three bedroom apartment - but they couldn't separate the beds in the bedrooms and the only extra bedding was an airbed - which the children didn't like sleeping on as it went down and wasn't very comfortable.The quality of the meals isn't great (the bread in one of the restaurants was a pinkish colour?!) - we had a good meal at Roys but it was very expensive and was long wait times.We have paid a really high accommodation rate so had correspondingly high expectations and have been a bit disappointed
A great drive from Honolulu to the north shore, and beautiful beaches when you get there. A perfect day to check out the Turtle Bay Resort for lunch and a look at the facilities fir a possible future stay. Unfortunately, the only lunch spot open in the hotel was 'Roy's' - unless you just wanted a sandwich in the coffee bar, otherwise the other two restaurants were closed. Unfortunate because you needed a reservation at 'Roy's' or wait the 40 minutes. Hard to imagine such a large place as the Turtle Bay Resort with only one place open for lunch and a reservation required at that - all while a convention was happening. So, we just drove back to Honolulu and thought we should think about reserving a spot the next time - what a shame! I don't think there will be a next time.
I was very hesitant to stay here after reading the reviews. While the resort is ranked very highly, there is a common theme among the reviews that the hotel staff are unfriendly and not accommodating. During our 7 day stay I was met with only the most friendly and helpful staff. We had great service from check-in, valet, pool, beach, restaurants, stores, cleaning staff...everyone!!!Pros-Location is amazing: People complain that this resort is in the middle of nowhere. Well, that's what I liked. We did rent a car for the week so that made it easy to get around. You're never any further than an hour away from anywhere on the island. Truthfully, if budget allows, there are so many activities that you can do through the hotel that you wouldn't really need to leave. The Staff: I really believe that the staff deserve credit for how great they were especially since they get a bad wrap in these reviews.Cons:Expense: This place is so expensive to add on anything. My husband and I ordered room service which consisted of two burgers and two sodas and it was nearly $100! We also got an 80 minute couples massage that was $600. Totally not worth it. The excursions were equally as high priced. Tips: Get up and go early. You'll benefit from the lack of traffic going from place to place around the island. Plus, all the hot spots aren't that busy yet. Eat off the property because it will taste better and be less expensive. Go to Ted's and bring a plate back. I will say that the store by the pool has some inexpensive snack and light lunch options. Also Roys has a hot dog and fries at the walk up counter for $7 during the day.
Just wow. My husband and I stayed at Turtle Bay for four nights at the end of March/beginning of April. It was our first time in Hawaii and at Turtle Bay Resort (TBR). There is only one word to describe Hawaii...incredible. We rented a car at the airport and drove up the west side of Oahu to get to TBR. The views in North Shore are out of this world. You can't believe the landscape around every bend. Turtle Bay was no exception. The property is magnificent and the grounds are really well kept. What impressed me the most about Turtle Bay besides the extremely helpful and nice staff is that it is a sustainable resort. Guests can enroll in their Green Program (which we did) so in exchange for reduced housekeeping services (the washing of sheets and towels) you are rewarded with a buy 1, get 1 continental breakfast voucher at Kula Grille (so delicious-we highly recommend)! You can also purchase stainless steel TBR reusable water bottles that keep your beverage nice and cold. There are plenty of water fountains on the resort campus too. All of our meals at TBR were amazing. Our favorite restaurant was Roy's Beach House. This is an open-air restaurant right on the beach overlooking beautiful Turtle Bay. Service and the menu was phenomenal (I recommend the poke bowl).There are a ton of activities to keep you busy if you don't want to lay by the pool or sit on the beach your entire stay. We had a great time snorkeling in Turtle Bay and the rental was included in our stay! We also rented bikes one day and had an enjoyable ride to the famous Banyan Tree.We highly recommend Turtle Bay Resort and already want to plan our next visit.
