Expert reviews

New York Times review:

“The expansive yet laid-back Turtle Bay Resort has tennis courts, pools, horse stables, a spa, and two golf courses, as well as access to a protected swimming beach and several surf breaks right in front of the hotel.”

Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Oahu, Hawaii.

Frommers review:

“The North Shore’s only resort possesses a beachy, laidback, but luxurious style befitting the less-developed, unhurried North Shore. Of all the resorts outside of Waikiki, this would be my pick, for the vibe, the value, and the surroundings.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Hawaii.

Forbes review:

“Turtle Bay, which spans nearly 1,300 lush acres that include five miles of untouched coastline, is the only full-service hotel in the area, boasting 450 rooms ranging from spacious oceanfront bungalows with a private infinity-style pool to accommodations with ocean views from the bathtub.”

Telegraph review:

“The only resort on Oahu’s North Shore, Turtle Bay offers activities from surfing to golfing that encourage guests to both relax in and interact with this remote and world famous setting. It also doesn’t hurt that guestrooms, restaurants and spa are top-notch.”

Amazing location, best resort we have ever stayed at - highly recommended!


3 November 2023

loved this amazing hotel, facilities and awesome beach was next level beautiful

amazing view! even the gym had a view! one of the best gyms and facilities I have had overseas

probably the price but you get what you pay for


28 October 2023

It was a lovely location with fine amenities.

The facilities were very nice. The food was excellent. Great pastry chef.

We thought paying for parking in that location was outrageous. Especially the amount charged. We considered making the employees pay for parking downright greedy.


17 October 2023


location, beach, staff, room, comfort. Very expensive, but worth it for the 1 night stay. Highly recommend getting your meals elsewhere. There are food trucks and great options a short drive away.


9 October 2023

when the NZ dollar improves - we’ll definitely be back

amazing facilities, beautiful and clean and modern.

very expensive but that is Hawaii in general


4 October 2023

We’ll be back next year.

First time was perfect.


3 October 2023

Very good

Overall a nice experience. The location is lovely and my partner and I had a very relaxing time. The resort was quick to help us move rooms as the one which was initially given to us had a very pungent mildew smell. We particularly enjoyed the carving activity with Sam.

Very expensive. Recommend booking tours and things to do in advance and not through the resort as it will be a lot cheaper. One of the staff at check out was not friendly and was extremely rude and unhelpful. She asked me for my ID for check out but no other customers were asked this.

Having to pay for parking.


8 September 2023

Amazing, relaxing experience

6 September 2023


All of above


2 September 2023

Gorgeous location, lovely room.

Beautiful location, wonderful property. Room was generously sized and comfortable. Very clean and tidy. The room was the best one we stayed in. We had 2 adults, 3 teenagers and 1 child and we all fit comfortably in the one room.

The pool was a little smaller than other resorts, and a bit cold.


31 August 2023

A place that has something for everyone and a beautiful and tranquil setting

Staying at the Turtle Bay Resort made us finally feel as though we were on holiday. The lovely staff, atmosphere and space.


30 August 2023

Great experience and beautiful resort. Would come back again someday!

Beautiful resort and location. Grounds were well maintained and staff helpful.

Cost. Restaurants and shops in particular are crazy expensive. I expected expensive, but not like this.


29 August 2023

Very nice resort and property. Overpriced

Beautiful resort and property. Hiked and rode bikes around the trails. Pools were nice but full of lots of loud kids. Amazing views from room on 5th floor.

Food and drinks are over priced. $130 for breakfast buffet with tip. Got tired of paying $18-$22 per drink. Went to gift shop and made our own. Seemed like extra charges were everywhere. Plan on spending another $250-$300 per day per couple for extras and meals. Better values elsewhere on the island.


28 August 2023

Very good

Great location, views, meals. Very pretty hotel

Service can be better, it wasn’t up to the standards set by the rest of the resort. Some staff seemed bothered to be asked to help (and I’m a very polite person who only asks key things and generally don’t want to bother people!).


27 August 2023

Lovely relaxing stay, would definitely recommend!

Location and setting is amazing. Loved the Lei gift on arrival! Staff were attentive. Great place to relax after staying in Waikiki

Food was great but expensive. $135 for a buffet style breakfast for two!! Rooms were cleaned daily but shower gel never refilled. We ran out of shower gel and shampoo


19 August 2023

Best place I’ve ever stayed in my life

Property was immaculate. So much to do and see. Pool was beautiful, beaches were gorgeous, trails were amazing.

Nothing! I loved it all


19 August 2023

Great time had at Turtle Bay but marred by the theft of my partners wallet.

Beautiful location and design, nice relaxing atmosphere

My partners wallet was stolen on the second night. The food was average for the price


18 August 2023


Everything! Food was excellent.

We should have extended our stay.


25 July 2023


Everything was great

There are some tourist traps, like the photo shooting. It was offered with starting packages at $350, but at the end the cheapest package was $810.


20 July 2023

Beyond amazing




11 July 2023

All the rest was very good

The interior and exterior was great

The first time we came to front desk to ask about how we can extend our reservation, because we lived before in Waikiki hotel and we decided to come earlier for a few days, the front desk was really nasty and didn’t want to talk to us because at that time was not residents I believe, then in a few days when we came to hotel I put my Zimmerman white swimsuit on the wood table on balcony and it’s painted it, I was extremely disappointed it was on weekends and the dry cleaning didn’t work I hope I’ll fix it when I come home

Close beach access Adult pool Views

Food options were expensive and not great
