My wife, daughter and I recently spent 15 days at the Polynesian Shore Unit #221. It turned out to be a perfect base of operations for our vacation. A recent remodel has this condo very updated and extremely comfortable. Much can be said about having a full kitchen stocked with everything you need (just add your food). There were even... More

We stayed here in July into August, just before the hurricane hit Hawaii. We stayed in the 3 bedroom condo, unit 210. We had 6 adults and a 21/2 year old. We rented a crib for the little guy, and it worked great. As for the grounds, they are immaculate. Very beautiful place, with all units facing the water. The... More

We stayed in room 118, which is at the back side, closest to the street. Our condo was clean but a bit tired. Nice pool good for small kids. Easy access to a small beach but it is rocky. Can snorkle from it. I would recommend staying in a room as far away from the street and parking lot. Trash... More

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

polyshores, Owner at Polynesian Shores, responded to this review

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
