This resort was amazing. It is private and secluded so you don't feel overwhelmed by so many tourists. It is what you picture Hawaii to be. We were here for a wedding and it was really a treat for us to experience Turtle Bay Resort. This is part of the famous North Shore so you get to see surfers surfing as you walk outside the resort by the pool area. The view is immaculate. I highly recommend staying here.

Knocked down a star for the quality of the food otherwise a great experience.

Brad Pepper

Amazing setting on Oahu's North Shore. No need to ever leave the resort. Fun activities for all and great facilities.

Tara Reynen

Awesome place to stay if you want to be on the North Shore and away from the more touristy locations in Oahu. Even during the rainy season, the north shore stays pretty sunny so this resort is in a great location!

on the north shore, it's nice for those who don't ever want to leave the resort. but for me it's a nice place to visit, but not stay at as i would go stir crazy

If you're staying at North Shore, this is the place to go. It's pricey, but a great hotel with easy access to beaches. You can swim around and see a variety of fish, crabs, and other sea creatures. I stayed in November and was hoping to spot a sea turtle but the waves were too high. Still, it's a lovely place and over by the bungalows you can catch hermit crabs! What fun.

PGA Golf Coarse where you can get your swing on. Great dining and a bar where you are likely to spot a celebrity or two enjoying the resort amenities.

The new management company tore down the front gate and embraced the locals after pumping in tens of millions of dollars. Everyone in the North Shore is excited and you should be too to visit. Incredible views, activities, food and attitude. Will make North Shore hot spot for 2015 and years to come.

A great place to stay away from Waikiki and in a wonderful location on the north shore. Very nice accommodations, and plenty of places to explore for food and drink nearby.


An older hotel which has been nicely renovated. Stunning location is what you are really getting here. Unbelievably beautiful. The restaurants are overpriced and not very good but you can find good casual local restaurants nearby. Nice cove to swim in. Can rent horses for a lovely and relaxed ride along the shore. They also partner with a company that leads kayak tours looking for sea turtles.

You don't have to be a guest to access the beaches to swim and snorkel. Great restaurants and bars are also open to the public.

This places is awesome! Most beautiful resort on the North Shore of Oahu. The waves surround this resort and when they are huge it has such an incredible energy around it! We slept with the doors open so we can hear the pounding surf at night. The rooms, pool, and staff are awesome! You will love it! I will stay there again for sure!

Wonderful place. Very large and remote as well. Golf, swim, and enjoy the ocean or one of the many condos that the owners rent out as well.

One of the only hotels/resort on the north side of the island, it's situated between the cove and golf course. It's so relaxing walking through the hotel, strolling through the golf course and resort grounds. High end restaurants located inside, and a plus with the new Surfer, The Bar hangout place, where surf celebs usually are invited as guests to their special events. The beach is free, and occasionally hold surf competitions. The hotel staff are friendly and maid service is great!

remember Forgetting Sarah Marshall, it's filmed there!

This is the only hotel on the North Shore.
A great place to be based if you are interested in watching susurfers or surfing competitions.
The hotel is nice but the bungalow suites are the best!
This restaurant's offer lots of choices and its a good thing because it is a bit isolated.
If you do stay out there I suggest a rental car as it will make exploring much more pleasureable.

Located on the North Shore of Oahu this luxury resort has a great position on the beach and even better amenities. You can surf right out the front door and the resort grounds are stunning too.

Sara Benson

Coming to this beach for a day visit will cost you just $5 for parking (or entry is free if you take the bus or get here by bicycle). And that's a bargain for such dazzling white sand and aquamarine coves calm enough for swimming and snorkeling. But the resort is showing its age badly, and the hotel rooms are overpriced. If you do want to base yourself here, try for an independent vacation rental condo.

Beautiful resort hotel with 880 acres available for your use. Great beaches, restaurants, golf, tennis, shops, bike rentals, horseback riding, helicopter tours, surf lessons, walking paths on pristine shorelines,


We stayed here last year and could not have been happier so we decided to come again. Turtle Bay on north shore is the best place you could stay on this island outside of a beach front rental property. Waikiki is so incredibly full of people and cars it reminds me of the mall on Christmas eve; you get none of that here.

So the only thing I had to say I wasn't incredibly amazed by were the rooms. They're adequate and big enough, just a little older feeling. Some may knock a star off for this, but I remain satisfied because the view you get from the lanai is priceless.

With that said the hotel is renovating all of its rooms one wing at a time, so keep that in mind when they're finished in six months or so. It looks like room rates are going up as well with the renovated rooms so we might not be back next year to see what all the fuss is about.

Food is pricey but I hear it's pretty good. I would rather explore the island and find somewhere locals like to eat which are easy to get to in both directions leaving the resort.
