Pacific Dream Photography
We had the photography package from Pacific Dream Photography during our trip this week. We had an amazing experience with our photographer and during our picture process. We had a family of 11 and the experience was great! The photographer took the time to get various photos of all of our family members. They took the time to make sure we were happy with each picture and they turned out beautifully. It was a wonderful experience and the pictures will last a life time! We highly recommend working with Pacific Dream to document this beautiful environment!
Big, resort hotel. Rooms are meh, but the rest of the property is nice. Beautiful hiking trails along undeveloped shoreline is a treat. The pools are quite crowded ( Memorial Day weekend) but the food is pretty good considering the size of the place. We Arya wedding on property and they did a fabulous job. Beautiful areas for the ceremony and events and the food and staff were great.
Group Horseback Riding + Bar
Horse back Riding: AMAZING We booked the group horseback riding (originally was couples sunset ride but they discontinued those before) and had a fantastic time. The horses were well cared for, and well trained, even to my partner who has only ridden twice. I've ridden for over 20 years and was impressed with the horses, the facility, and the guides. Totally recommend this! Bar: Meh + Pricy even for Hawai'i standards We also stopped in at the bar, and were met with some interesting staff. Our server was great, but one of the others was quite rude and dismissive. Given the price of the cocktails + gratuities (our server was lovely and shouldn't be faulted for his companion), it was an unexpected mix. I wouldn't bother stopping in for a drink next time after riding, as the house mai-tai was nothing to write home about. Spend your $32 a drink elsewhere.
Spectacular Stay at Turtle Bay
Our second trip staying at Turtle Bay and this time in the main hotel (not a bungalow). Booked the upper floor with an amazing view that was worth every penny. Perfect to sit outside and enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon beer and snack or evening cocktail. Room was perfect. Spacious. Modern. Lots of USB ports right by the room. Fridge. Bathroom was spacious as well. No complaints. Remodel has done wonders for the place. The grounds that make up the property are stunning. Lots of walking paths and hiking trails. So much to explore! Some dining options on site but also lots to explore outside. Rent a car and visit the many food trucks nearby – shaved ice, pizza, shrimp, tacos. Support Local! Or even head over to Haleiwa for dinner. Yes, the place can be pricey but everything is pricey on the island. Swing by the local Foodland to stock up on snacks and local beers. A 5 star stay all day! Stay at Turtle Bay!
Heaven on Earth
We were fortunate to be hosted at Turtle Bay Resort for a corporate event. Everything about the resort was incredible. The staff was welcoming, the room was tasteful, comfortable and immaculate, the pools and surrounding scenery were gorgeous and the shops featured an impressive selection. If this isn’t heaven on earth, I don’t know what is!
