My children and I just got back from a lovely 2 week stay at the Polynesia and we can honestly say the hotel is stunning... very clean throughout, the junior suites are large enough for a family of 4 and had everything we needed. The staff are friendly and efficient. The restaurant food was above average and catered for absolutely everyone, the chocolate fountains were a hit!
The water park is a must, just a miutes ride down the hill on the hotels open top shuttle bus 'Julia'. Just remember to book your lunch at reception the morning before you are going as we forgot most days and there is no free snack bar once you are there.
The Thomson holiday reps were fab, Gary and Sophie, very helpful and friendly, Stephen was chatty and helpful on our trip to Gibraltar, just such a lovely team.
The only downside to the holiday for us and a few people we spoke to was the lack of good quality entertainment in the evening. we found it very boring after dinner. Unfortunately it is not Thomson run and is well below average, my 11 year old son found it boring as the kids club catered mainly for the little ones and myself and my 18yr old daughter found most of the acts cringeworthy to say the least! Had we been closer to Fuengirola and Benalmadena we would have gone out every night and found our own entertainment but a 10 euro taxi ride each way adds up over a fortnight.
Overall we had a fantastic time, the hotel, the staff, the food was all very pleasant, sort out the kids club for the over 10s and get some decent entertainment for after dinner and we would come back.
