We spent two weeks in this hotel and absolutely loved it! Some people have mentioned that it is in the middle of nowhere. This is not true. At the bottom of the hill, outside the hotel gates, there are bus stops that take you to Fuengirola, Marbella, Benalmadena, Torremolinos and Malaga. Buses are fairly regular and very cheap. We also... More

We stayed at the Polynesia over Christmas 2014. My 19 and 20 year old sons and myself stayed for a week. We were astounded by the look of the hotel and made us smile and feel very happy. The rooms, staff and facilities were of a high standard. Entertainment was poor but we were not there for that. We made... More

We stayed over the Christmas, there were 11 family members ranging from 9 years to 70 years, it was my husband's 70th birthday treat. We had a private minibus to and from the airport and this was certainly worth the extra money, very efficient and time-saving. The hotel itself is superb, lovely ambience and so clean. The suites were large... More

As a family of mixed ages from 22 months to 70 years, we all had different requirements. The Hotel interior is out of this world, the internet really doesn't do it justice. The suites are very large and beautifully decorated and cater for all your needs. Ample wardrobe space, twin sinks, bath and separate shower. Obviously winter months you cant... More

My wife and I spent Christmas week at the Polynesia with another couple after booking the holiday with Thomson. After dropping off at two other hotels we eventually reached ours. It turned out that it was many kilometers in either direction from any bars or shops so no stroll outside after a meal. The hill that the Thomson brochure described... More

We have just come back from a week long Christmas family holiday. A well appointed Hotel that is within walking distance from the beach (approx 5 mins) The rooms are of a decent size and are cleaned regularly, they are also very modern . I would think that even in the summer months, that this hotel will still feel quiet,... More
