As many of said, Wi-Fi is basically non-existent, unless I was at the lobby or in one very specific spot on my patio (even then it would drop consistently). We had a 2 bedroom unit in building 8. Nice accommodations. Roomy. Clean. Excellent location. Would definitely stay again.

We booked this stay through a 3rd party. Upon arrival we felt that we had to attend a vacation timeshare presentation or pay full price so we booked a time for the presentation. We had to change our appointment which was no trouble.

The rooms were more than we expected. Our room was on the second floor in building one and consisted of a large bedroom with king bed, full kitchen, dining area that seats 6, living room, 2 full bathrooms, walk-in closet, separate vanity area and balcony accessible from the living room and bedroom. We were very impressed by the room and the security guard at the entrance.

The presentation, however, left a VERY sour taste in our mouth! The presentation was at a different location a couple of miles away from the Polynesian Isles. We were greeted right away and she made nice small talk and gave us an overview of the program. We've never had a timeshare presentation so we were interested in how it worked. She answered our questions and showed us a nice room. When we began asking about the actual cost of the buy in for this program, they were reluctant to tell us what it was unless we made a commitment that day. We explained that we like getting the information and having several days to research it and make a decision. The first woman brought in a second woman who tried more of a hard sell tactic with us. We explained again that we like to research it before making a decision. She showed us the cost of the buy in which was something we weren't prepared to give them that day. They pressed us for a commitment which we didn't give so they said thank you and we needed to see another person for an exit interview and they would prepare our free gift for our time. It turned out the exit interview was actually ANOTHER employee, a man, who pushed the hard sell even more than the women. Their program is great for an annual vacationer but we don't vacation every year. That was not what these salespeople wanted to hear. We were so angry by the time we left that we didn't even want to stay in our room for our last night. We stayed because we had paid for it ahead of time but this company's tactics certainly put a damper on part of our vacation. I doubt we would ever stay in this hotel again and we will most likely ensure we never stay in another hotel that is even remotely connected to a timeshare again. A real disappointment!

Our stay at Polynesian Isles Resort was a nice one. I have been to some other resorts in the Orlando area and this one is a tick below as far as things to do, etc. but it certainly is a nice place to lay your head down after a day at the parks. The rooms are nice and big, very clean which is important to me. There is also a fridge and kitchen inside if you want to do some cooking. The grounds are very well maintained and are very lush with trees and plants. There is no housekeeping, so you will need to take out the trash, etc. The only downside for us was the room had a bit of a smell to it when we got in. After a few hours of opening the window, the smell pretty much went away. I would certainly stay here again if I could get a good deal on it.

This review has nothing to do with the actual resort itself as my family did not get to stay here but only with the customer service that we experienced. I booked through a 3rd party site a few weeks prior so needless to say I was completely surprised to find out they had overbooked for our brief stay when we arrived. We were utterly disappointed given our long drive and traveling with an infant.

Their office manager was extremely apologetic for the confusion but offered us to stay at one of their sister resorts a few miles down the road and provided a map with directions. Additionally, she offered to waive the resort fee and refunded one night of our two night stay. I thought their front desk personnel managed this situation very well which allowed us to have a pleasant experience despite of this mistake.

My wife and i stayed here on our honeymoon. The complex is informal, clean, tidy and quiet. There is security staff on the main gate 24 hours a day, so the complex is safe. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We booked into our room which was extremely spacious, being 2 double bedrooms, with 2 large en-suites, kitchen, lounge and dining room. Plenty of space for a family...

Sleep quality was excellent, the location is great, only 10 minutes straight drive into Disney along the 192 road. Pleanty of eateries within the area and other shops - not too commercialised.

Only down side of the hotel is there is no bar or small conveneince shop on site, so you have to go shopping if you want anything. Early check out of 10am was a little annoying but this should not put you off...

Room Tip: Excellent location.
