Hi!!! Staying at Turtle Bay Resort later this year and can't decide what room is best to book. Need help? family of 6. Many thanks
Sorry, I can't help, I've never stayed there but this will bump your post up!!
Stayed there years and years ago when it was a Hilton property but if memory serves me all the rooms have ocean views. We were on the top floor on the side away from the bay but still saw tons of turtles.
Dropped in for a quick look around a couple years ago and they have renovated it and it looks nice.
It depends if you all want to stay together. If so, you will not find a room big enough. You should look at the villas which are located to the right of the resort or there are condos on the golf course.
We have stayed twice in a room. First time in 2008 just two of us. Then 2012 with a 2 year old and this year we have chosen a condo on the golf course through VRBO for our family. Only 3 of us but the condo sleeps 6. It's not on the beach but a short walk away and less than half the price.
There are many options depending on what you are looking for.
If you are not planning to stay together all rooms gave great views but the higher the better :)
Turtle Bay is awesome, you will love it!!!
Thanks for your replies. So I will try to either get a room/s on higher level or condo either way it seems you can't go wrong with this resort

You may want to read the recent reviews regarding ongoing construction. My husband and I stayed at the Turtle Bay Resort several years ago when the hotel was also under renovation. Later we learned from our travel agent that the Turtle Bay property is perpetually under construction. Looking at current traveler's photos, the resort looks the same as it did when we stayed there - unfinished. Maybe construction will actually be complete by the time you are planning to stay there. Other options if you want to be on Oahu but not in Honolulu are the resort properties in the Ko Olina area.
Just stayed at Turtle Bay - villas (which are really just apartments) are great for families, we had a 3 bedroom villa on the top floor (3 floors). As per earlier posts if you are happy to stay near but not in the resort you will find accommodation at half the price. We would likely do that next time, to save $. We were not bothered by construction, there were a few awnings up around the hotel but that was all.
We have stayed there for decades (from back when it was a Hilton property).
I agree with Jodi, that the villas will be your best bet. There are really two separate sets - villas and condos. Check both.
We have always stayed in a King Cottage (for the last dozen years), but they are much too small for you. While the hotel rooms have been redone recently, we never saw anything that would help you. With my wife and myself, plus her mom, and godmother, we had two adjoining rooms - nice, but five would have been very tight.
Does anyone know of an excellent therapist who will come to the Turtle Bay Resort? The Resort's prices for massage are very high!
thanks for any help!
