Okay so me and my girlfriends stayed here about 7 years ago. So I decided to come back here after searching for a hotel for a Saturday night stay. Here's the deal most hotels and even motels require 2 might stay when you are staying on the weekend. I only needed and could use one night. Upon calling the Polynesian...

Had plans change on us. Jaime at front desk was gracious and fair about cancelation. When circumstances improve we will certainly renew our booking. We are sorry it didn't work out. We so looked forward to staying there.

We will never ever stay here again! So glad we didn't have our 1 year old with us. The pool's were not clean and water was cold. Our room smelled and there was mold on the bathroom ceiling. For some reason our room keys got dis-activated a day before we were checking out so we had to go down to...

We've been staying at Polynesian every July for the past 4 years. Never again. When we checked in, we were sent to a "Concierge" which was nothing more than a salesperson for the new owners. The resort was just sold to someone who is turning it into time shares, with only a portion staying hotel rooms. I did not appreciate...

I was very disappointed with this hotel. For the price I would've expected a little more. When my husband was checking in he overheard another guest with the manager and they were trying to tell him that they were told by another staffer that there "were no more towels" in the hotel so they couldn't have any and if they...

Nothing but stink and dirt is what we found in our room when we arrived. housekeeping called immediately and "re-cleaned" our room, what a joke! Laundry rooms on all floors were out of order, ice machine by our room did not work and the keys would not open most of the doors. Indoor water park was not opened because of...

We stay at the Polynesian several times each year for low-key waterpark weekend getaways. Since this hotel only has a small indoor waterpark and a small outdoor park crowds are usually much less than at the bigger resorts. Rooms are a bit dated, but usually decent. This time we had more issues with our room that took away from our...
