resort was beatiful, nice spot on the point of beach. a/c was broke in the room. was able to sleep with sliding door open to be somewhat comfortable.
Location View Parking General store Room and hallway Decor needs an update. Choose color schemes that are classic not trendy. Floors should be hardwood since it's humid.
Rooms were nice. Clean. Great view of the water, even from a partial view room. Beds were too soft. Not a good value: they charge a resort fee and all you get is a beach towel and 2 hours rental of snorkel gear. Their website shows kayaking, bikes, etc. it is all extra - and expensive. Very misleading. Only ate at one restaurant and the food was not great so we ate the rest of our meals off the property.
Overall atmosphere was lacking. Staff was not friendly. Seemsed to be undestaffed
EVERYTHING!!! This was our first but definitely our last trip to Turtle Bay. Many thanks to Dennis, Monica and Neric for taking such good care of us. I believe Ian is the food and beverage director. He went out of his way to get my family a table for the 4th of July dinner. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Turtle Bay for a wonderful vacation!
The hotel, staff, amenities are just added extras, the view and beach are what people think of when wanting to visit Hawaii. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Beautiful place with a friendly staff They screw thou with a 38 dollar resort fee (used to be 25) and do everything in their ability to get you to cash out, and it shows. Pretty disgusted considering the trips are normally amazing with turtle bay. Has gotten considerably worse (price wise).
Pretty sunsets and delicious food. Loved the pool, poolside drinks and nighttime entertainment. The beach was great for snorkeling and swimming. There was a wedding going on and the music was loud but I did enjoy it.
The accessibility of everything. The good and drinks were great. The fitness center was located in a nice spot. All the staff were friendly. Lack of things to do on a rainy day.
Carol, very clean and lovely rooms Fire alarm going off twice in the middle of the night,a charge for everything possible.
Away from Honolulu and nice mix of guests Beachside Restaurant (Formerly Ola, going to be Roy's) has been under construction for a long, long, time!
The room was very nice and the food at all the restaurants was excellent, sometimes bordering on amazing. The staff was friendly and always helpful. And the location is terrifically beautiful. There were lots of little problems with our room that pointed to a lack of preventative maintenance, -'d the seemed to be having trouble with the fire alarm system. We had 2 false alarms during our 5 night stay. All in all, nothing terrible. Just small annoyances. But the manager did right by us and we are happy with the outcome.
Awesome rooms. I lived on island for 5 years and it is hands down best place to stay, especially if you want to stay away from the city. Parking was free but difficult. The staff needs to work with all guests on parking in appropriate spots and not taking four spots with one car.
Hidden gem! Everything here was delightful: the luxury-tropical theme, the buffet dinners, the beautiful pool and hottub, the hotel kayaks, huge bay, live music and fire dancers. Not the place if you are looking for a sandy beach or shopping nearby.
Spacious rooms, great view,very relaxing setting,staff very friendly. Breakfast buffet was good and good selection of items. Parking was easy and free. The location was in an area that was not well kept,with residence that did not control their animals.
The location and the view! Bathroom had a weird, moldy smell to it.
On the quiet side of the island, off the beaten track. Could use more outdoor spaces.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Just decent people running a great business. I used to live here. I wanted to give my 15 year old twins a taste of the real Hawaii, rather than the concrete jungle. Mission accomplished. no.
The experience was wonderful. Being right on the water, was great. Breakfast area was awesome. Having kayaks and gear to use, included in the price, was excellent! Yoga was cancelled 2 out of the 3 days we were there.
Excellent activities available, such as yoga classes, kayak use and classes, and great food recommendations. Would have liked a larger room - looked bigger in the online pics.
The location is stunning. The pool is beautiful. The Friday night music and fire dancer were great. No phones in the room. They have you sign a very stringent agreement when you check in including saying that they are going to put a $200 hold on your credit card for up to 20 days after check out. When I got home they had over charged me $200.
There was a sweet young lady who worked with breakfast great people skills she is going to go places Steps lota steps
The bay views and quiet serenity away from the tourist areas of Oahu are what I liked best. 1.neglected, dilapidated, unkempt properties that greet you RIGHT BEFORE you drive up to THE PARADISE BAY RESORT LOBBY leaves you w/ a very bad first impression. 2.'FREE' activities named online, but turn out to cost $20-$25 3. passive staff
The place was relatively secluded and quiet with a family friendly atmosphere and ambiance. Liked the pool which seemed really good for the children. The rooms were like a bungalow which was also a forte and loved the multiple exiting doors. The reception was good but the dining options had too much limitations, the included breakfast was OK though. For family themed visits with plans to spend time at the Polynesian center, this a good choice, Looking at the proximity to the beach, thought there would be a private beach, but was really let down when the beach was across the road and the approach through a narrow pass that had to be searched for, the beach was not so good either. The proximity to the Polynesian cultural center would have been the motive for this hotel but we having arrived in the weekend had a hard time finding a dinner on Sunday!! All nearby establishments were closed maybe to the influence of the Mormon presence. So if your like the occasional drinks, this is not the place for you
Nice calm location on Oahu, far from maddening Honolulu more pertinent for a vacation, brand new facilities and very clean Across a busy road from the beach so even preteen children cannot cross unsupervised. Beach was mediocre. Some of the personnel weren't quite sure what were they doing there anyway
It was lovely, my whole family would have enjoyed it.
The webpage neglected to mention the "poolside lounge" didn't serve alcohol. This is a dry community! The hotel was nice, and adjacent to the Polynesian Cultural Center, but far from the nearest bar. Turtle Bay Resort is the closest.
The service from all the employee's was outstanding...especially the front desk lady names Briar, she went above and beyond. Everything in the hotel was very and new and modern. The beach being just across the street was fantastic as well. We would for sure stay there again.
The dorm I stayed in was didn't have a/c and I didnt expect it. Linens and a pillow were provided, happily unexpected. It is right on the main road but the road is SO QUIET at night and one of the German speaking women were outspoken enough to police the conversations from other cabins nearby to ensure quiet (everyone is different...get ready to experience folks who are different from yourself). Restauants, food trucks, grocery, beaches...all nearby and cool staff. Dude, love the no frills experience...encourages you to focus on the surf and the people...thanks! Ha! I always seemed to be looking for the property after dark and while I was unfamiliar with the area, I would pass it five times before successfully making the turn. I might suggest a solar light to illuminate the "Backpackers" and "Plantation Village" signs...else, no suggestions.
Good location to Waimea Bay. Close to Pipeline, Sunset Beach, Teds Bakery, Haleiwa etc. It is a quite worn down backpackers place. Thin doors. Hard beds. No aircondition, fan or other commodities in room. No sink, no toilet in room. Fairly unclean.
