    Wedding Stay

    My hubby and I prefer to rent homes/condos when we travel, but we booked Turtle Bay in March for a wedding. We thought the accommodations were nice, but not quite worth the price. The resort could use an upgrade. Our room was clean and had a nice view of the beach. We also liked that there are two pools - one for families and one is adults-only. The grounds are pretty and we enjoyed watching surfers from the pool area. I would have liked if they had a better running path, although, the fitness room is awesome. During our stay, it poured almost the entire time, so we spent much of our time with friends in the hot tub. It was also just as the COVID crisis was becoming a problem, so the hotel was beginning to shut down. Given these factors, we know we didn’t enjoy our stay as much as we could have. As for the wedding, it was a beautiful ceremony and reception. All in all, we wouldn’t stay here again.

    Fantastic

    This was one of the best vacations we have ever taken! Turtle bay is absolutely wonderful!! It is beautiful, everyone is nice and there are lots of activities to do. The room was great, we were on the vista floor, the breakfast was wonderful, we looked forward to it every morning. So glad they had lots of almond milk!

    Outdated and overpriced

    We stayed at Turtle Bay on our honeymoon briefly and were very disappointed. The reviews weren't great but we thought we would give it a shot regardless. Our room smelled quite old and musty to the point where it made my stomach upset so we tried a different one-- same problem. The staff were helpful but at the end of this day this hotel is past its prime, I'd suggest a vacation rental to check out the North Shore. If you're expecting a beautiful well maintained resort, this isn't it.

    Amazing hotel

    There was not one thing I could say that needed improvement. There was so much attention to detail. The staff were so professional and kind. The food and drinks were top quality and tasty. The view from the rooms were breathtaking. The pool was heated. Free snorkeling gear were provided if needed at one of their private beaches. What I truly loved the most were the many hiking trails and the turtles at the end of one of the hiking trails. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience.

    Poor business practices

    Our reservation was from 3/22/2020-3/26/2020, obviously during the Covid-19 crisis. Upon arrival, we realized many cancellations had been made due to the sparseness of visitors. We were given a room upgrade, which was appreciated, but mind you, all amenities were not provided with the upgrade, so not much of a big deal. My problem is the decision made by the owners to close the resort due to financial reasons because of the inability to fill the resort. We were given a phone call with less than 48 hours notice that we would have to vacate the premises and were given a number to a hotel in Honolulu to see if they had rooms available. Honolulu is at the time, the epicenter of the most Corona cases and practically on total lock down. This was a financial decision to close, not a state order. We had to ask for a pro-rated refund on the resort amenities fees, since so many offerings were not available. No discount on food, beverages or future visits for being kicked out and left to fend for yourself. These owners should reconsider being in the hospitality business, since they obviously are only concerned about their bottom line and not the hospitable treatment of their guests. They definitely dropped the ball instead of making a good lasting impression on how to treat your guests during a difficult time for everyone. I, among all other guests experiencing this treatment, will not be revisiting or recommending this resort in the future. Best of luck to the owners, the Blackstone Group, because they’re going to need it if they continue to do business in this fashion.
