We stayed at Polynesian Shores condo 220 for a week last month with our family. The condo was extremely clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and the private beach a real surprise. We swam with the turtles right on the beach and they came so close my 3 and 6 year old nieces were able to see them right... More

Recently Polynesian Shores was reviewed by a previous unhappy guest. This guest stayed at the property a year ago.......why complain NOW? I do not understand. As an owner of over 17 years at Polynesian Shores and a full time resident on Maui, I feel compelled to clarify the situation. Please note, Julie is the RENTAL Association manager, not the manager...

I have travelled all over the world and never have I encountered a more unprofessional and completely rude manager. I cannot understand why the condo association still allows her to work here after so many bad reviews. I can understand one or two complaints as you can't please everyone but Julie has had several poor reviews. The location of the... More

We truly loved our stay at the Polynesian Shores. We stayed in room 225 - although we really wanted a ground floor room, this was the next best thing. You could still hear the waves at night lulling you to sleep. The room was clean and everything in working order. Loved that we got a welcome bag and pineapple. The... More

This is not the first time that we have stayed at Polynesian Shores. The location is right on the ocean and every room has a great view. This time we stayed in unit 224. This unit was very clean, well supplied and offered a gorgeous and quiet view of the pacific. The property is well maintaned and the location is... More

Aloha, we are sorry for the miscommunication that you experienced between our manager and yourself. The second time you spoke with Julie about being unsuccessful with clearing your plumbing problem, she immediately called a licensed plumber. Julie takes plumbing problems very serious because this could inconvenience all the guest at Polynesian Shores should the water need to be turned off.... More

We spent six weeks at Polynesian Shores this winter and could not have asked for a more wonderful vacation. Each unit has an amazing view of the ocean, looking out toward Lanai and Molokai. We stayed in unit 102, and we could watch whales, dolphins, and sea turtles from our lanai, and you can snorkel and swim with the turtles... More

Listing is for unit #118 First off the listing on VRBO is not correct. It says amenities "washer & dryer" but doesn't list it's as coin op. I have a 5 month old daughter- would never have rented if I would have known it was coin op. Second: the carpet is DISGUSTING.. I mean gross. I could not lay my... More

Condo 213 is a 2bedroom 2bathroom privately leased condo & was a great stay. Just a couple of notes though.... This complex is about 10mins drive from the town so a hire car is a must. The complex really caters to retirees and therefore isn't the place if you're looking to mingle with others under 60 (well it seemed this... More
