“Comfortable and great value spot near Disney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had a fantastic stay at the Polynesian, after spending a few days saying on-site at Disney, having a bit more space to spread out in while taking advantage of all the fun stuff Orlando had to offer for the rest of our trip was a treat. The unit was very clean, very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed for traveling with kids.

We had a two-bedroom suite that was bigger than some apartments we've lived in, and all the finishes were of a good quality, but not too slick - like staying at a generous aunt's Florida condo.

There was a bit of pressure to talk timeshare, but not aggressive or pushy in any way. When one of the kids took sick, we received good advice on where to take him and were repeatedly asked how he was doing during the following days.

We will definitely stay here again the next time we head to Florida.

We stayed here for 4 days 3 nights 2 bedroom villa that slept 6 people as part of a sampler program during spring break, check-in was breeze they welcome us by name as soon as we walked through the door. Our unit was located in building 12 on the first floor. The overall appearance of the room was a very old Hawaiian decor, we did our walk-through and checked everything out and it was very clean. The kitchen was kind of small, but we made it work. Took a walk around the property it is very small, we could tell that was very well taken care of the lawn was green, the pools were clean, the Jacuzzi's were cleaned and the buildings themselves were in great conditions. We come to Orlando a lot so we just wanted to hang around the resort and use all the amenities. Spent all day in the pools, late nights in the Jacuzzi and some early mornings too we just enjoyed ourselves. Tip the Jacuzzi in the back the property is the deepest. Experienced movie night in the owners lounge but we were the only ones who showed up so we had the place to ourselves, the feature movie Interstellar won’t play, after trying for about 20mins the front desk guy bought us a list of movies that we could view instead. He went out of his way to make sure my family was taken care of and even popped us some popcorn. The only issues we ran into were that our front door didn't close all the way and lock if you push hard enough on the door it would open. We just made sure that the door was shut and couldn't be pushed open when we left. I notified the front desk during check-out. Secondly, someone took our clothes out of the dryer and they were still wet. The washer and dryer are shared by both rooms on each level. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Room Tip: I noticed that building 13 is the newest, have to walk through glass doors to access rooms and stair...

We travelled from the UK and chose this accommodation based on other reviews - it was perfect. All the previous comments about large rooms, pools etc are spot on. However, the thing that really made it for us was the location - we were on a 2 week trip to do all the Orlando attractions - Disney parks are about a 10 min drive, Seaworld about 15 and Universal about 20 - this made it really easy to go back and forth & get a break by the pool during the afternoon as those theme parks are exhausting! There is a huge Walmart a 2 minute drive away - turn right out of the apartments and it is the next right - really handy to know its there, especially if you are arriving late at night & need to grab a few bits to eat & drink. If you turn right out of the apartments you've got Lake Buena Vista shopping outlet at the end of the road - however, head for the premium outlet stores located at the top of International Drive for a much bigger mall. Don't miss Twistee Treat ice cream - turn left out of the apartments & then right at the lights at the end of the road (this is the way to Disney) look out for it tucked in by the Nike store on the right hand side. Super apartment & excellent location - we'll be going again.

I booked this property for 3 days in March as a home base while visiting the Disney theme parks. The 2 bedroom unit rented (832) was just as advertised. It was clean, spacious and wonderfully cool. Most importantly, after long days walking around Disney Parks, it was a pleasure to sleep in such comfortable beds. We rented a top floor so no one would be above us to minimize any potential noise. There is no elevator so if you don't want to walk your luggage up 3 flights of stairs, you might want to request a first floor room. This unit was very quiet, so we were glad we asked for a top floor. This is a Diamond Resort property, so they will explain the benefits of time share, but it was not a constant sales pitch. The front desk staff was very gracious. We weren't there long enough to enjoy the property amenities, but they all looked nice. The property is close to many restaurants, Walmart, Publix and all the Disney Theme parks. I would highly recommend this resort for a stay in Kissimmee.

We booked our vacation here after reading the reviews. We were not disappointed. The resort had everything you we and more. The kids enjoyed the pool and the basketball court. The location was great and close to all attractions. The staff was extremely polite and was willing to help. We stayed in building 13 which was across from the pool. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Will definitely be returning next year.

This resort is just perfect for us! two great pools, spas/ hot tubs round every corner. We booked a two bedroom and are very pleased. The rooms are very spacious, well stocked and modern. But for us the best factor is the location! Really close to everything! I can see this resort being a regular home base for us!

Just got back from a really nice staycation at the Polynesian Isle Resort in Kissimmee. I can say that I really loved this property and I will be back soon. It was a small piece of heaven. Let me tell you that this place was so much more than I expected. We made reservations only 2 days before we were due to leave. Booking was easy and no fuss. I checked the reviews and they all had great things to say so we decided to check this place out. The location is EXCELLENT! It is somewhat secluded yet close to everything you need. There are several restaurants within less than 5 minutes from the resort. There is a 24 hour Walgreens and a lots to do for families at Old Town which is like a carnival all less than 5 minutes from the resort. Check in was a little long, but it was a holiday weekend so I understand. We were in building 6. Very happy to see how nice & clean it was. It smelled really nice and clean. Beautiful full kitchen with dishwasher and equipped with everything you need to whip up a delicious meal. Bathrooms were clean and beautiful. We were in the 1BR 2 BA. There was a bathtub in the second bathroom. The bathroom in the bedroom suite has a large shower. There were plenty of fresh towels (Kudos to the cleaning staff!) The bedroom suite was nice and spacious and the little patio was nice as well. There were two nice-sized flat screen TVs and there was a bidet in the master bath as well. Furniture is dated but I love the character that it brought to the place. Sofa was nice & comfy and the sofa bed was comfy as well! There is a washer/dryer right off the dining area. Dining room table was nice and big and there was a dimmer for the lights for some ambience. The property is immaculate. There are 2 pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, a basketball court, a nice lake and waterfall, and some beautiful sitting areas with plush patio furniture. Lots of gazebos with grills for cooking out. There is nice small gym as well. It was SO QUIET and peaceful I really did not want to leave. They have a room service vendor also. Takes a while to get your food and the prices are steep, but food was good. But with all of the restaurants near by there really is no shortage of places to eat and there is a Publix down the street less than 5 minutes from the resort if you just want to cook your own meals. The staff was so nice and helpful and I really enjoyed my Easter weekend relaxing at Polynesian Isle Resort. I will be back before the end of the year so PLEASE don't change a thing. This place is great for a nice relaxing family vacation.

Room Tip: Pick a room near the back of the resort. Building six is next to the hub where the maintenance staff...
