Well...woke to a fairly ugly day this morning. Took a look outside it looked like the swell had picked up a bit but I wasn't confident the Pipe contest http://billabongpro.com/ would be on. Lo and behold the call was made by the contest director at 7:30am to RUN! We were straight onto it and jumped straight into the car and headed down the …
Woke up this morning very excited to check out the north shore and all its offerings. We figured the kids would want to sleep in so Katrina and I jumped in the car and headed to the beach, first stop Pipeline http://www.hawaiiweb.com/oahu/ehukai-be ach-park.html We knew the contest had been called a lay day but we were still keen to go …
We picked an excellent day to depart Kauai. The weather took a decided turn for the worst with intermittent heavy showers and grey skies. We spent the morning packing and tidying up the unit. We were sad to be leaving Kauai what an awesome part of the world. Hopefully we will come back one day.
We hit the road about 10am, with a quick stop …
Despite not being particularly huge fans of taking guided tours, we decided to take one around Oahu. We had some reminders along the way of why we like to do our own thing... But we were also reminded of plenty of good reasons for taking a tour as well - particularly when you're new to an area. The day started early... again with alarms ringing all …
Turtle Bay Resort: We stayed here for the first 4 days of our honeymoon. I found this hotel by searching where the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall was filmed at and decided to book it. This resort was very nice and had many things to do to keep us entertained. We went in September so it was very secluded and we had the beach to ourselves most of …

We loved this hotel and everything about it. We went during off season and we had the place to ourselves most of the time. Our room was always very clean and the staff was friendly. Lots of trails to walk/hike on and 7 miles of beach to explore. We rented Mopeds from the Adventure Center and rode to the nearby town. Would definitely stay here again!

Historical Traveler Reviews Turtle Bay Resort Kahuku
I, my wife and two kids (14 & 11), just returned from a 5-night stay.
Wow! This place met and beat all our expectations! Better than an island-hopper trip if your trip is based out of Oahu. We were staying with relatives in Honolulu with other visiting family staying on Waikiki. Our few days at Turtle Bay felt like we were oceans away and hands down beat the Hyatt Walkiki concierge level relatives were in. All rooms have direct ocean view (we're talking you could throw a rock into the water), very nicely decorated and not hokey Hawaii at all. Took advantage of TB's hiking trails; found a SECLUDED bay beach with only one other family on it. Amazing Banyan tree beats the one in Maui, plus you feel like you've really been exploring when you find it. We would go back in a heartbeat! Can't say enough about it!
The remodeling is finished (7/2003) and this place is worth every dime.
We just returned from a wonderful vacation at the Turtle Bay Resort.
We have stayed at Turtle Bay for the last two years while attending a seminar on the North Shore. The first year we stayed at the condos.
Healing and laughter
Arrived 4/3/2003 thru 4/9/2003, stayed in condos walking distance to resort and public beaches. Discovered Lei Lei's Bar and Grill on the Golf Course for fun, fresh fish and easy going atmosphere. Owners know how to make a place successful, and gave me tips on what to do while on a solo peace mission. Absolutely made my vacation. nan
On April 5th we arrived at Turtle Bay Resort. It was one of the greatest experiences. We had two teenagers with us that wants to go back. Plenty of activities for the teens. My wife and I enjoyed the snorkling, sunsets and whale watching. If you are a golfer, you will not be disappointed. The people at Turtle Bay were excellent. Everone was very friendly and always wanting to help. Turtle Bay is located on the North Shore. It is semi-secluded but Turtle Bay has allot to offer at night if your a night owl. I have nothing but positive things to say about Turtle Bay. We Will Be Going Back.We had considered going to Atlantis in the Bahammas but changed our mind upon hearing reviews about the rude people and the expence. Our (Four People) expenses for food averaged 100 a day. This is eatting out at night and making sandwhiches during the day. Ouhua can be as expensive as you want or as cheap as you want. Go to the Polynesian Culture Center. It is worth ever dime. If you are considering going to Turtle Bay or Oahua and want further information, email me.
We just returned from Turtle Bay on the North Shore. We were pleasantly pleased with our room. We had a run of the house room but all rooms have great views. We had a bay/ocean view. We could see whales breaching from our balcony. What a sight. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Large bathrooms and vanity areas. Nice comfy down comfortors. The dining is a bit spendy. I suggest eating at the golf club for a better meal. We drove west about 10 minutes several times for a great meal at a local joint called "Taste of Paradise". Their catch of day was always so fresh and there was always so much food. We also hit Giovannis Shrimp Truck. For $11 we had a full plate of rice and shrimp. It was wonderful but be prepared to peel your own shrimp. Messy! Not a bad deal. Overall we had a great experince at Turtle Bay and would stay there again. Next time we hope all the remodeling is done though.
My wife and I stayed at the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu in late September 2002. The hotel is undergoing massive renovations, however for the most part the work was not any inconvenience to the guests. Views are incredible from all rooms, we would suggest paying slightly more and getting a full lanai (patio) instead of one that you can only stand on.
This is the place to stay!
If you are looking for a secluded place to stay on Oahu, with big rooms, beautiful views, and lots of amenities, go to Turtle Bay. It's an hour away from the hectic-ness of Waikiki, and the staff's hospitality is amazing! If you can, I highly recommend booking a cottage. The accomodations are beautiful! This place has everything: horseback riding, tennis, golf, a private beach, 2 jaccuzi's, 2 pools, and a great North Shore location! We made the mistake of splitting out our stay on Oahu, staying at Turtle Bay the first 5 days, and a Waikiki hotel the last 5 days. As soon as we got to our Waikiki hotel, we wanted to go back to Turtle Bay!
