“Perfect for our needs.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Staff was so accommodating. Great 1 bed 2 bath apt. Would recommend to anyone but especially families. We wanted to control food costs while doing Disney. Having a full beautiful kitchen was amazing. In-room washer/dryer was a pleasant surprise ( I think;-) ).

Me and my partner now husband have stayed at this resort 4times, each time just gets better, the staff were and are amazing especially Connie & dee dee, we decided to get married at the resort as we love it so much and from the first phone call to ask if this was possible the staff could not do enough, Connie became our wedding planner organised location decorations music photography you name it Connie pulled it of even when the weather was not on our side Connie and dee dee changed plans and reorganised with 24 hrs to have the wedding inside, they decorated our apartment with petals sent bubbly chocolates and strawberries to say congratulations, they could not do enough, the apartments are amazing the property spotless and the location faultless, our holiday and wedding was unforgettable due to the amazing efforts of the staff and this truly amazing resort, they are in our hearts forever thankyou.

We ended up with an unforeseen extra night in Orlando and picked this place because it was under $100 per night (and the Polynesian theme seemed cute). I was blown away at what we got for our money! I was NOT expecting an impeccibly furnished one bedroom, two full bath condo. The kitchen was nicer than mine at home, with granite countertops and anythign you'd need, even a blender! The bedroom was huge with a great bed and walk in closet. The master bath had a shower for two and a BIDET! I've not had one of those in a suite in Vegas! It also had a full dining room table, pull out couch, second bathroom with tub, and a wrap around, screened in lanai! I remain in disbelieve that you could get that, in high season Orlando, for $99. Every day in our five night stay in a dump in Daytona, we said we wish were were coming home to the Polynesian again!

One huge caveat for any pool people like me...It's not a place you want to hang out at the pool all day. A simple rectangular pool with some chairs, no bar or music or landscaping. We just sat in the hottub to relax after traveling and that was great for our purposes. As a place to come home to after seeing all there is in Orlando all day, it would be absolutely perfect. We already decided if we ever have kids or take our nieces and nephews to Disney, we will stay at the Polysnesian.

My boyfriend and I stayed in this Resort for 4 nights. Overall, it was a really good experience. Apartments are very spacious and well equipped. The resort itself is really nice. Everything is kept in a Polynesian style and you'll get in vacation mood. However, there seem to be differences between the apartments. First, we stayed in an apartment which seemed to be very old. The equipment and the furniture seemed old and smelly. Thus, we complained and got a new apartments which exceeded our expectations. Everything seemed brandnew, smelled fresh and we even got a whirlpool in our room. So, overall I would definteley recommend this resort, but better take a look at the apartments you get first!

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!
