After reading some of the great reviews of Little Polynesian, I am even more disappointed of our own experience during our stay. We chose Little Poly to celebrate our honeymoon, but left feeling pretty 'ripped off'. Unfortunately our experience was not the fairytale I had dreamed of. Firstly while the service was adequate, we had no personal touch, no reference... More

We have just spent 6 nights at this sensational little resort. We wanted a relaxing and quiet holiday in a luxury resort and we got all that. This resort has 10 villas sitting on a magnificient beach lagoon. You step out of your villa onto the beach and then a few steps into the crystal clear water. The villa is... More

My wife and me spent 7 wonderful nights at the Little Poly from June 15th-22nd for our belated honeymoon. After reading all the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor we found an online deal and booked. My first point of contact was via email with Vicki and she could not help us enough. She responded to my email enquiries almost instantaneously.... More

My husband and I have just read some of these reviews and can't believe some of the negative ones! We had seven nights at the Little Poly for our honeymoon over Easter 2013 and were completely blown away. The room was practical and well-decorated, and the outdoor shower and bath was wonderful. We were upgraded to a beach front unit... More

A wedding truly in paradise. Our ceremony, celebratory dinner and stay at the beautiful Little Poly, with its tranquil, picturesque beachfront, with the sound of soft crashing waves from the crystal clear blue waters of the lagoon made lazing around relaxing, reading a book or snorkelling right outside our private beachfront villa just a treat. Our beautiful wedding was held,... More

From the welcome (complete with tropical fruit drinks) to the farewell, this is a class act. The staff are helpful (some more than others which is to be expected) and well informed. The rooms are private, clean, and beautifully designed. The outside spa bath was a highlight (we stayed in the beach are). The setting is spectacular, with excellent snorkelling... More
