My group of eight was very comfortable in our room. The pool is very nice, as is the hot tub. They also have a beach that, while it is public, not a lot of people are there (though that could have been the season). I’m not sure if everyone has the same caretaker, but Jen Williams was wonderful. We had a little bit of a rocky vacation, but she was able to extend our stay by half a week, gave us recommendations on things to do on Oahu, and helped us rent a vehicle! The cleaning lady for our room was also very nice and apologetic, even though we arrived early, and dutifully set us up with towels, etc. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, plates, silverware, and cups. The microwave and stove and oven worked well and the views were amazing!
Bucketlist destination, wild & wonderful location

Our family of 5 plus 2 grandmothers stayed a week in a 4 bedroom 2nd floor end unit (on the hotel side) to celebrate my mom's 75th birthday. The unit itself was well cleaned, organized, appointed, and maintained. Our balcony overlooking calm Kulima Cove with big winter North Shore rollers beyond was gorgeous. It was insanely expensive for our normal budget, but everything was right at hand for our two 75 year year olds and active teens, so we splurged for the special occasion and it was worth it!
My husband and I walked the beach to the right of Kulima on our first morning and came across an endangered monk seal napping high in the sand. The kids learned to surf on the big Turtle Bay rollers while the grandmothers cheered and took photos from The Point outdoor restaurant/pool area. My mom braved the little slide here too, to my daughters' delight. I taught my mom to snorkel in the cove and she was impressed at the many colorful fish we spotted close to shore. My daughter and I also spotted a large turtle resting, wedged under a rock a bit further out. Rocky and Kahuna were busy surfing with younger kids on the left side of Kulima, entertaining us all throughout the week.
Visit if you can for luxury adventure.
Perfect location and great amenities

We rented two villas and a studio (through Gina's Vacation Villas) for a large family group. Everyone in the group agreed that we could not have found a better place to stay in Oahu. The North Shore is quiet and laid back with natural beauty, many activities, farm stands and food trucks and very warm and friendly people. The villas have access to a beautiful protected swimming and snorkeling cove (we saw turtles and an array of reef fish) with an amazing beach, a quiet private well maintained pool and all of the wonderful and varied activities offered at Turtle Bay Resort. The villas provide a spacious homey environment (large living spaces, completely stocked kitchen, washer and dryer) and easy walking distance to TBR restaurants, bars, entertainment and recreational activities. It is a short easy drive to explore - Kahuku food trucks, Ted's Bakery, Haleiwa, Kualoa Ranch, Waimea Valley, as well as the absolutely amazing beaches that line the North Shore. Gina and family were very friendly and accommodating hosts. We rented ground floor units and access from the lanais was very convenient. Incredible views from the lanai and beautiful grounds. We loved the quiet pool and hot tub area with its shaded loungers for reading and napping. This became a convenient and lovely gathering place for the group in the late afternoon. We loved watching the sunset from The Point at the resort. We also enjoyed dinner at Roy's Beach House and Lei Lei's - all within a short and pleasant stroll.
FIRST CLASS PROPERTY IN PARADISE

My wife and two daughters came for a stay. This was a first class property at the turtle bay resort. The location is remote and very tranquil. The room was decorated with premium appliances and decor. It has a private bay connected to the resort and a pool. All the hotel amenities are available when you rent at this property.
WOW! Amazing Resort

We came here for Christmas this year and the resort was amazing. The staff and service was great and very attentive. The housekeeping crew did such a get job and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable.
We golfed one day on the Fazio Course and wished we scheduled more times to play. Our girls rode horses at the Stables and had a 2hr tour along the beach.
Lei Lei’s had great menu options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We went multiple times.
Room Service was disappointing, so save your time and money.
We snorkeled just steps from our room.
Speaking of the room, oh my goodness! We were on the 3rd Floor at the Ocean Villas and the room was nicer than our house. 3bd, 2br with gorgeous granite countertops and fully equipped Subzero and Wolf kitchen. Only drawback was a convection microwave that couldn’t pop popcorn.
