    Very special resort!

    We had a really special stay here. It’s a lovely place, very impressive. The staff were great upon arrival and our room was perfect. The views are stunning! There’s a really well stocked convenience shop there which came in very handy multiple times. We felt like we were in a movie staying here and I’d highly recommend.

    Our family decided to have a staycation and late birthday celebration) as we never experienced visiting this side of the island as often after living here for over 20 years. As local residents, we were very impressed and appreciated the services and amenities provided at the hotel such as the Pacific Dream on site photography (highlight of our trip), jacuzzi, and the horseback riding (highlight of our trip). Front Desk Services were very in touch and a big help for us as they sent houseman, room service, and the maintenance to our room when requested. Our only comment is that our walk-in shower did not have a door which can cause messes on the floor and the hose option which can be convenient, but that is the structure of the bathroom. We overall had a very good stay and I wish to do use all amenities offered if I have the opportunity to visit again.

    Worth staying . Good for families with small kids

    I would have given them a 5 but choosing 4 for these . 1. The pool was not heated , in fact colder than the ocean 2. The jacuzzi was 10f hotter 3. The food was a mixed bag and very little menu to choose from However , the interiors were so good . The rooms were recently updated . It’s a very clean resort with good guest profile . The staff is very courteous and efficient . Plenty of things to do

    This is about contacting them by phone. Over $1,000 a night, and "the concierge is not available" at 2 in the afternoon. You must be kidding me. Trying to make dining reservations. VERY bad look. It is embarrassing for a high end resort to say they do not have anybody available for such a simple request. I mean, really....

    Amazing family resort

    Our second time doing a 3 night Turtle Bay stay with extended family - we love this resort, great balance for all ages, great food, great service. Tanner helped us at check in. We always stay at AMX partner hotels, which Turtle Bay is- comes with great perks. Used their spa (excellent massage with Wilson) and Stables (Kielie was wonderful with my 6 year old, highly rec).
