Had a great family holiday. Everything was so good, pool was cold though. Water park really good and courtesy bus great. No problem with beds, tables for meals and spa but not sure I would be saying this at the height of the season. Staff were excellent with nothing being too much trouble. Great holiday.

This was our third trip to Holiday Polynesia. This time we booked direct with the hotel and seperate flights which worked out cheaper than package deals. We had a suite overlooking the pool. The suites have an extra large balcony with it's own sun loungers and a jacuzzi. As we travelled OOS even if the weather was not great there... More

We had an amazing holiday. Booking within 6 weeks of departure we found a good all inclusive price with Thomson. I do however, understand why some people are disappointed if they paid some of the advertised £1500pp prices. Arrival and departure at Malaga airport was 'taxing' due to lack of clear Thomson direction, but the transfer (once we found it)... More

Me & my partner went out for 1 week from the 23rd October to the 31st 2014. It was amazing. Staff are so friendly. Food was great & a mass of choice. A bit let down by the a la carte polynesian style food. The starter was very tasty but I ordered macaroni cheese, it came as a bowl of... More

A very stylish hotel. Big, grand reception and nice poolarea. To go off-season was not a good idea, not much to do there, most things closed for the season. We took the bus to Torremolinos for shopping and restaurants and that was great. We walked to Furerongiola about 3-4 km away, not so nice but we found av very good... More

Went to the Polynesia during the school summer holidays with my husband and family which included 4 grandchildren aged from 5 to 15. We aren't normally advocates of kids clubs as we believe in quality family time. Trouble was the youngest aged 5 and 7 had other ideas. After trying it once you could not keep them away the activities... More

This was our first holiday abroad with our 4 year old daughter so after a lot of research we opted for the Polynesia hotel. The only downside when we first arrived at the hotel was the lack of reception staff, after a long flight and coach transfer the last thing you want to do is stand in a long queue... More
