The condo was huge- two floors with a nicely sized living room and kitchenette! The only downside was the lack of air conditioning in the rooms. It tends to get very hot during the summers and the fans aren't enough. However, the view from the room was spectacular, overlooking the pool and beach. Awesome!

My family stayed at Polynesian Shores room 203 for 5 nights before heading to the Westin Resort for 4 nights. We were the 3rd unit from the water, which I loved. Our balcony was pretty much always shady so we ate all of our meals out there. I spent hours on the lanai every morning drinking coffee while the family... More

What a fantastic resort. Good size rooms, Very comfortable furniture. Excellent beds. Spectacular views. Great to have a private sandy beach where you could swim with the Turtles. This property was well positioned to the town of Lahaina with good restaurants and supermarkets, for self catering supplies. We arrived after the office was closed for the day, instructions and Villa... More

Had trouble with cock roaches on kitchen counter. Management sprayed and that help for a couple of days. Construction next door was noisy and could have caused bugs to migrate to our unit. With bug problem didn't feel like eating or preparing food in the kitchen so had to eat out every meal. Beach access and location were good.

Having been here a couple times I felt a review is in order. We stayed in room 102 each time we've visited. It truly is the best room as you can literally walk out onto the lanai and the ocean is RIGHT THERE....you can hear the subtle waves kissing the shore. There is a pool but we never used it,... More

This is my 3rd visit to Polynesian Shores and each time gets better and better. This is a family tradition starting when my parents came in the early 90's and then us kids with our families. The landscaping and view is truly paradise. The rooms are nice and the service is friendly along with the visitors that are staying there.... More

We fell in love with condo 223 from the minute we walked in. Super clean, great floor plan, lovely kitchen, and great oceanfront lanai. Our days at the beach were fantastic. The turtles were amazing. I have dreams of Maui and want to go back, and would stay again in this condo in a heartbeat. I would recommend this condo... More

I booked a last minute trip to Maui and had never stayed here before. The price was right for a solo trip so I took a chance. The Shores is an old complex built in the Seventies so don't expect a very modern experience. Instead it is an intimate and private place to rest and enjoy the island atmosphere. The... More
