Grab a towel, drink & your camera! Sit & watch the surfers catch big waves around 5ish behind the pool area, starting at the bay that feeds out into the ocean.
The best thing about this hotel isn't the beach, or the golf course, or the hammocks or the Mai tais, it's the staff. Friendliest people I've ever met. Come to turtle bay, you won't regret it.
This is where "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" was filmed...and just as beautiful in person as it was in the film!
Hike the green trail to see the LOST banyan tree
Great fun especially if you surf. Themain dining room sucks. Go see Virginia at the coffee cart and she will hook you up with coffee and fruit/muffins/salads. Nearby shrimp trucks are great
I quit wearing a watch when I moved out here.
Must do the fruit market a couple blocks north. Really cheap fruit just picked from the on site farm. Also great lunch meals.
Great honeymoon spot!
Great Customer Service! Amazing renovations and updated branding!
If you want a good meal, don't go to the hotel! Go to Lei Lei's or Ola's. If you want an amazing Martini, see Allie at 21 Degrees. The Bay Club is fun for late night drink with friends.
Watch out for Craig, he might be creeping on you. PS I like turtles.
I suggest looking for local places to eat unless you're willing to spend $60 for mediocre breakfast (for 2.) Dinner was better but still a Lil pricey. Other than that, the resort is incredible.
Get out to the little surrounding towns for great, local food!
The Helicopter tour is a MUST!!!!
Love it! Amazing staff, amazing view... the best surf school EVER
Hit up Ola for lunch & drinks for cheapest drinks and food. On Sunday @ 6 fire dancers will start at hang ten by the pool. Head south of resort tobeach to the south of the resort to spot turtles
Try the Longboard dark lager. Better than Yuengling
Spa is expensive! Couples massage is $290 but we also got charged a mystery "service charge" of $55?! Upside was it was oceanside & relaxing but if one more person offers me cucumber water!!!!
Check out the blow hole and walk around the grounds. There is a sitting area by the hole to look at the waves crash on the rocks.
MaiTai's at LeiLei's, Margaritas at Ola's, Martini's at 21* North
you have got to go on the kayak tour and explore the WWII Bunker...soooo interesting!
grilled hot dog at hang 10 with a Kauai ale after snorkeling with my new bff sea turtle homie. best ever.
You can get drinks at the shop by the pool and it is half the price as the restaurant and pool drinks. Wish I knew that at the beginning of our trip.
Find a set of restrooms and a bar at the beach to the right of the main hotel bldg which would be to the left of this pic ;)
Stay away from main building. Get a beachfront cottage. Comes w/ butler at not much more $.
Don't eat at LeiLeis food is horrible... For the same price you can eat at Ola's
The swim area of the beach can get crowded during the day. There is a lot of coral. Beach stretches to your right behind the green hut another mile. Cabanas $50-75/first come, first serve.
Try out the numerous activities: enjoy a round of golf at the championship golf courses, go horseback riding, go hiking and mountain biking and more.
The best Mai Thai's on the island (in my opinion).
Check out the horseback riding activities. There are even pony rides for the little ones.
Nicest rooms I've ever stayed in on Oahu (better than a corner Hilton room and the Outrigger Reef), but the dining here is a step below.Ola is overpriced for what you get, but the view is to die for!
You're in for a great vacation! This is one of the best resorts on Oahu. Relaxing, beautiful, away from the crowds and traffic of Waikiki.
North Shore is the place to be, yes it's a resort, but it has nice areas you can walk to and have your own private beach. Way better than Aulani Disney Resort
Here you see the turtle Bay resort.
The Thai food truck nearby called the elephant truck is amazing. The turtle bay resort though? Overpriced and poor service.
Avoid the overpriced food and drive 16 minutes to Papa Ole. Get the garlic chicken and shrimp and short rib dish!
Right now our Spa is being renovated but there is still awesome services available. You get 15% off treatments/massages and 10% off hair and nails until the reno is complete!
Go see Jessica at the Lobby Lounge. She makes a mean latte and is super nice!!
Go to the beach bar ola instead of hang ten. Same drinks, cheaper price and less wind.
For some good grub head down to Kahuku Grill and Tita's in Kahuku to save some $.
LeiLeis is great, don't listen to the mayor
Be sure to ask for a room with the larger balcony. The room category and cost is the same.
The beach cottages have beyond amazing views!!!
Excellent resort, away from it all & in the middle of the Hawaii I wanted to know.
Palm Terrace for buffet brekky is really good. Decent omelet chef & good variety of food for $26pp. Why are all the staff so old & sad though :<
