Five stars for service, location, natural beauty and overall ambience. My husband and I had our wedding ceremony here less than two weeks ago and I can't even begin to say how beautiful it was and how the resort staff went above and beyond for us. If you are considering your wedding, honeymoon or anniversary here, don't think twice. Just book now. It was the most magical time of my life and I only wished we stayed longer. The resort is even more beautiful than it was shown in photos or in the movies. Everyone was so helpful and treated us with first-class service. Mahalo to Dida (Events), Jacques (PSAV), Leilani (check-in), Hoku/Charlene (Housekeeping) and Liz (flowers) for giving us the wedding of our dreams. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will be back!
PS. Feel free to message me if you are considering your wedding here. Will be glad to answer any questions!

Such a wonderful place to get married. We were treated so special during our honeymoon stay at this resort. We also held our wedding at the hotel and it went off without a hitch!!! So beautiful; I couldn't ask for anything more. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. I hope every bride feels like I felt getting married at this beautiful resort; a princess!!! The stunning hotel and friendly staff made this trip so magical. So happy we decided to have our wedding and honeymoon here. No regrets & we can't wait to return next year!!!!

My husband and I got married here in April of this year and I'm afraid to say the sales and event catering team at this resort was full of disappointment. I live in California so planning a destination wedding was a challenge of its own but the resort team made it extremely difficult with their lack of communication. During the initial booking process in June of 2013, I was stood up on a phone meeting that was set up to accommodate the sales manager's schedule. I spoke to the upper management and got an apology and a promise that things will go smoothly from then on. After I paid the down payment (50% of total projected cost), I was assigned a catering manager who I was excited to work with because I read good things about her. That excitement did not last long until they switched the catering manager on us. The new catering manager WAS HORRIBLE. The new catering manager took over our event from October of 2013 and I'm going to list what went wrong since then.
1. She did not address some of the questions I had until I asked her in person when we checked into the resort for our wedding.
2. She did not make us feel welcomed when we checked into the resort in the week of our wedding.
3. I found out the day before our wedding, that her phone number's been changed for quite a while. Hence, no communication was avail to us when it got close to the wedding week.
4. I thought maybe she messed up so much cause she was busy but I found out that our wedding was the only event scheduled on the entire resort for the entire weekend.
5. She told people certain things that weren't true.
7. Grand finale: SHE MESSED UP ON OUR FINAL BILL. I'm not sure if it was her or another department's responsibility but she was supposed to send us the final bill to review which never happened. Without giving us an opportunity to review the bill, our credit card was already charged the wrong amount and IT TOOK 2 MONTHS FOR EVERYTHING TO BE FIXED.

I was born in Hawaii and this would be my first time 'home'; I planned for my wedding to be there. We got married on Temple Beach and had our reception on Hukilau Beach. I had an idea in mind about what I wanted my flowers to look like. I sent a picture of the bouquet I wanted to florists, and Liz from Turtle Bay said that she would be able to do it/something close to it. That was good enough for me! She worked really well with us. She is an amazing florist! My flowers were flawless! They were bright colors and beautiful! I could tell that she worked hard. Even though she had a team of people, she showed up on my wedding day with the flowers and handed them to me. It was a hectic day; so, we met briefly but I can remember her coming up to me and saying, "I really hope you like them!" I loved them! It was perfect for my special day.

Also, because I hadn't been to many island weddings, she was very helpful there. She told us what was tacky and what was perfect. We made so many changes and she was right there with us. She also saved the day. I had boutonnieres planned, a more mainland wedding style and I didn't realize that it looked that way. I had told her that I wanted it to be as authentic as possible. My Samoan family was going to be there and even though I was adopted and didn't know exactly what to do, I wanted it to be as traditional island as possible. Liz asked if I wanted lei's for the men I wanted to honor and the mothers and said that it is normal for them to have lei's. I double checked with my grandmother and she said that lei's were appropriate. She hadn't wanted to tell me, because she wanted me to feel like it was my day. She didn't want to be pushy. But, I was so glad that Liz had told me, because it made everything so perfect. She made the most beautiful lei's for the mothers, grandmothers, and men. The maile lei she made for my now husband was flawless.

I definitely recommend her and her fabulous work.

Venue was even more beautiful my wife and I could have imagined! Everyone is still telling us how breathtaking this wedding was! We are still being complimented on how good the food was, and it was something that we were worried about because we were not able to do a tasting since we live in Chicago. It was worth every penny! Dida Hernandez was extremely helpful, and cooperative. I would love to work with them again...maybe a vow renewal in 5 or 10 years!

Ceci made all of the arrangements for the creation and delivery of our beautiful wedding cake. My fiancé and I live in Lis Angeles and could not make a trip to Hawaii before the wedding so all arrangements had to be made via phone or internet. We had no chance to preview anything before the actual event. At the top of my wish list was a few flowers for the top of the wedding cake so imagine my surprise and delight when this amazing cake arrived adorned with a cascade of beautiful orchids. It was not only lovely to look at but delicious as well. Kudos to Ceci and her staff for a job well done!

I am frankly shocked to read all of these positive 4 and 5 star reviews, because my husband and I had an atrocious experience planning our wedding at Turtle Bay Resort. While I agree that the venue is breathtakingly beautiful and the hotel staff are friendly, working with Turtle Bay Resort and their event planning staff was our BIGGEST headache of the wedding planning process.

Apparently Turtle Bay has gone through multiple management changes that affected their level of customer service and level of competence. Now don't go on blaming this on the venue being in Hawaii. Every other Hawaiian vendor my husband and I hired was professional, responsive, and competent. Even for Hawaii standards my local Hawaiian wedding planner said this was the worst vendor and venue she's ever encountered.

If you are going to book your wedding with Turtle Bay Resort, here is the level of incompetence and atrocious customer service you will receive:

-Having your designated go-to wedding coordinator change 3 - 5 times,m and having to re-explain everything all over again with each new person you deal with

-When my husband and I had the last wedding coordinator change, their email (yup, NOT a phone call but an email!) said, "Someone will get back to you within the next month." This was THREE MONTHS before our wedding day, meaning someone was going to get back to us within TWO MONTHS before our wedding day.

-No responses or return of calls, even after you call, email, and leave voicemails

-Inconsistency. What they tell you now or what you sign in the contract will change again, and the worst thing is they will deny whatever had previously been agreed upon.

-Hidden costs (ie: pay for 1/2 the site fee for a rehearsal and an extra charge for your coordinator to be there; or $500 minimum fee for booking brunch the morning after the venue)

-They will let you know you are just a number, and that you are not important.

Bottom line: book your wedding venue elsewhere!

I am so happy we went with Turtle Bay Resort for our destination wedding! Not only is it a breath taking location, the service provided was exceptional. Melina Patrick was our coordinator and she made sure we had the best wedding possible. We met with her the day before the wedding, after countless phone conversations and emails. She went over everything with us and assured us that we would have a great day. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch! Melina made sure everything happened on time, which was very important to my husband and I. During the reception, we had plated dinners waiting for us so we didn't have to go to the buffet ourselves and always had a drink in our hands which was such a nice touch! Bryan was the person who waited on us during the reception. He was such a great guy and made sure we had everything we wanted! If you are looking for a beautiful location and GREAT service for your wedding day, you should definitely go with Turtle Bay Resort. I promise you will not regret it!

We worked with Pura and Mikilani at Turtle Bay during our wedding planning process. They were both so organized and answered any questions we had while trying to find our other vendors. As the date was approaching, Mikilani helped us the whole time figuring out what we wanted and even made suggestions on things we weren't sure about. Our ceremony was in the pavillion with a reception right next to it. Mikilani had the whole thing so organized, I didn't have to deal with any vendors or logistics during my big day. Our wedding ran so smoothly and the views from Turtle Bay were gorgeous and we will forever treasure our memory of being married next to the ocean. Turtle Bay really knows what they are doing when planning a wedding and are very helpful during the process and especially on the day of your wedding!

We had our dream destination wedding at Turtle Bay resort in July, 2013. Our ceremony was held at the beautiful Kuilima point and reception at the Pavillion. Being from Australia, I initially thought it would be difficult planning our wedding, especially considering how picky I can be with personal touches and detail. However, all my apprehension disappeared with the help of our amazing coordinator, dida and florist, Liz. They made planning our wedding seem so easy, so much so, that on the day of our wedding everyone commented on how relaxed we were...as we knew every detail had been well taken care of. We had a buffet and open bar for our reception, and we recieved heaps of compliments on how great the food and drinks were. Our wedding cake was also designed and created exactly as we had requested and tasted amazing. Overall, I highly recommend having a wedding at Turtle Bay Resort as they have friendly and helpful staff and provide beautiful locations that make for one unforgetable day.

We had a destination wedding at Turtle Bay Resort. We also stayed at the resort. All the staff were so nice & very accommodating. They upgraded our room to the newly renovated rooms & it was so nice, clean, & had an amazing view. The whole entire property was so beautiful. A much better retreat than the crowded Waikiki & Honolulu. Melina Patrick who was our wedding coordinator was so great. She helped me out a lot & was very sweet. We had about 30 guests fly out to Hawaii for our big day. Our ceremony was on Stables Beach & it was perfect. We had our reception at Kuilima Cove. The ocean view was amazing. The food & drinks were also amazing. We had such a great time dancing. Everything was perfect. I wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you so much Turtle Bay for giving us our dream wedding!!

We had a destination wedding at Turtle Bay Resort. We also stayed at the resort. All the staff were so nice & very accommodating. They upgraded our room to the newly renovated rooms & it was so nice, clean, & had an amazing view. The whole entire property was so beautiful.

I had most of my out of town guests stay at Turtle Bay. It's such a beautiful place and idyllic on the northern part of Oahu. All of my guests loved the resort and seems to be a popular place for weddings and other similar venues.

Even before the hubby and I talked about marriage, individually we knew that Turtle Bay was the place we would LOVE to have a wedding IF and WHEN that day came! And low and behold, we made it it a reality. A destination wedding is what is was. And planning it isn't always easy from the mainland. But what more could you ask for??? North Shore...our favorite place on O'ahu, The Pavilion...gorgeous glass chapel with the ocean breeze blowing through the open doors, An outdoor tented Reception...perfect! But would not have been able to do it without the nicest, most helpful, accommodating, patient, on site coordinator a girl could ever ask for! Thank you so much Mikilani for all your help and kindness during the whole process. You made all the difference in the would and made our experience with Turtle Bay unbelievable! Everything was amazing! Thank you!

We had our ceremony and reception at the Kuilima Point at Turtle Bay Resort. The weather was perfect that day, and the view was breathtaking (overlooking the water, but ceremony and reception were on the grass). The food was delicious - we didn't have time to do a tasting since we are from NY, but everything, most especially the prime rib, got rave reviews from our guests. And we had an open bar, and the hit of the evening was the Hula Girl drink!

Our coordinator from the hotel Joann Dicion was very warm and friendly, and every accomodating to our requests. Everything went perfect, and the we were very happy we had our wedding at Turtle Bay.

My wedding was on the stables beach. Which was the last location available when booking 5 months in advance. It was absolutely beautiful. We were on the beach with not a person in sight besides our wedding bunch. I got my hair and makeup done that morning at the spa/salon and they did an amazing job. I had a vision and told them and they created it perfectly!! Everything was perfect! One of the best days of my life was spent here.

We had our ceremony scheduled for the Bay View Beach Point, when we met with our coordinator she took us to the site. There was construction taking place and she offered to move our cerony to another beach site there at Turtle Bay. The resort staff was very friendly! We enjoyed our stay at Turtle Bay!!

This place is gorgeous and have nothing but fantastic things to say. Picture perfect venue. This was a destination wedding and my only negative was the responsiveness of e-mails prior to the wedding. I would absolutely recommend this venue to any bride.

I am so grateful with the service and commitment level that Turtle Bay Resort provided to us. The staff was very accommodating and the service was impeccable. Our guests enjoyed the food, our wedding cake was yummy but most of all, the hotel gave us a weekend with family and friends that we will never forget. I didn't want to leave the day after our wedding. Even though the hotel is far from the hustle and bustle of waikiki to my husband and I it was worth every single penny spent to have our wedding at the resort. The grounds are gorgeous and everyone is very attentive. I'd highly recommend Turtle Bay Resorts to future couples :)

I had a wonderful time at turtle bay. On arrival, my room was upgraded per my catering coordinators request. It was a large beautiful room with a full ocean view. She met with us on her day off to show us the venues we chose. We switched from the bay view beach due to the high winds they receive on that part of the bay. They moved us to the pavillion. I had to request the windows be washed 2x's prior to them actually doing it, and then there were people going into the pavillion while the runner and flowers were up taking pictures!!! My coordinator was wonderful. She quickly answered all my questions and was very sweet and excited with me! She even helped me put flowers in my cupcakes a few hours before the reception. The hotel is a bit dated, because it is older, but everything was perfect and the food was wonderful. I would highly recommend turtle bay.

Turtle Bay Resort is a BEAUTIFUL location for a wedding! It is such a special place and we really loved it! We had our ceremony at Stables Beach and it was perfect! We had a great waitstaff for our bar and appetizer setup. We had our reception at another restaurant on site - which I would definitely recommend other brides to do just so that you don't rely on the hotel TOO much for the big day.

I would definitely, 100% recommend hiring your own wedding coordinator (separate from Turtle Bay) just to make sure everything runs smoothly if you want to have your wedding here. On the day of our wedding they had forgotten to take down the decorations from the previous ceremony and tablecloths weren't even on the cocktail tables 10 minutes prior to my guests arriving. I'm sure this is because Turtle Bay has so many weddings and the staff is very busy. Lucky for me, my coordinator had taken care of all those details the day of. If I didn't have my own coordinator, this review probably would have been much more negative!

The site was still worth it - everything was beautiful!
