We just returned from a stay at The Polynesian and I'm very happy to say my wife & I and our two daughters had a blast! Given the ages of our daughters - 5 & 8 - The Polynesian was probably a perfect choice. After reading many of these reviews before our trip and now after, I've decided what this... More

We picked this hotel expecting a certain level of service and enjoyment. We come to the Dells every July as a sort of Family reunion. We usually stay at a family owned condo, but as the family has grown, we now have need of a hotel every year. The staff was indeed very friendly and helpful on a very busy... More

My family just got back from a 3 day stay at the Polynesian. We have 2 boys ages 6 and 9 and we couldn't get them to leave the waterparks! They had the best time ever, and so did we! We had a 3rd floor room with a poolview balcony. Our room was just a standard 2 queen room but... More

My family stayed 2 evenings and enjoyed the stay. Here is our review of the resort and pool. Pool: Our children (4 and 3 year olds) absolutely loved the indoor and outdoor pools. The pools are perfect for children under 12 as they state, but also fun for adults. They have two lazy rivers, one inside and one outside, and... More

3 adults and 2 children (ages 4&5) stayed Thursday through Saturday (which was a good idea because Thursday was not only a cheaper rate but not as crowded). Rooms: spacious, clean, beds and pull out couch were suprisingly comfortable, balcony came in handy to dry bathing suits. Great refrigerator, big enough to fit a gallon of milk Food: brought our...

My kids (7 & 9) stayed at the Polynesian for 2 days over spring break - a last minute trip idea. We had a great time! Front desk was friendly, had our room ready at 1pm and let us check in - I was only planning to get wristbands for waterpark until check in time. 2 indoor water parks were... More

Checked in around 11pm with 4 children ages from 1 to 9. Got to room and found it to be less than tolerable. Floor was very dirty and food and trash stuff was found on floor hidden by bed spread. Checked sheets and found one bed to have sheets with dirt stains. (No mattress pads) Spoke to front desk and... More

We really enjoyed our weekend at the Polynesian. We have three children ages 1 1/2, 3 1/2 & 5 1/2. They loved the waterpark, game rooms & little kid play area. We found the hotel very clean & well kept up. The staff was very friendly and seemed to go out of their way to assist us. The main pool... More

Checked into the hotel only to find that our room was not cleaned and it was not the room type we had booked. We booked a King room and were given a double queen. When we went down to the front desk to see if we could change rooms the front desk staff told us we could not do that... More

Management response:

The Polynesian prides itself on customer satisfaction first and foremost. I'm not quite sure why it took four months for this guest to write such a review of myself and the Polynesian and I dispute the content of the review. More

My family and I stayed at the Polynesian Oct. 27 - Oct. 30 and had an excellent time. We arrived around 3:00 and were able to check in with no problems and no waiting. The front desk clerk (I can't remember her name) remembered us from last year and she was very friendly. She was more than willing to help... More
