4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Negatives: The volume of music around the pool and animations choice of boom boom base is horrendous, akin to 18-30 holiday. Several guests requested the volume to be turned down as they couldn't hear their own music through the earphones, when you tried to order a drink at the pool bar the staff couldn't hear you because of the sound...

We travelled here from Gatwick with Thomson for a relaxing week in the sun after having renovations at home. First impressions the hotel is stunning. The atrium is lovely with huge fish pools, an aviary & turtle area. We got into our room early which was a lovely touch. The rooms are great, huge and very comfortable. Rainfall shower AND... More

This hotel is what it is, aimed at the family market, but can still be enjoyed by a couple wanting a relaxing week in the sun. I can't agree with some people giving it such low ratings. I think some go away to be miserable and glory in it. Anyway clean, comfortable and the staff worked hard, were always kind... More

We are a couple in our late 50s so this is a honest review based on our experience. The music at this hotel is total off the scale. You can not sit around the pool at certain times as the music is ear bashing to say the least. We complained to the rep a lady named Hanna who spoke to... More

The hotel Polynesia is absolutely lovely with waterfalls & a jungle feeling and plenty of space. The food was good and staff were very helpful. Our reps Gary & Hanna gave us details of trip we wanted to go on and took an interest in how we enjoyed the trips. The rooms were most comfortable, unlike the sunbed around the... More

A huge hotel complex in a compound of 4 hotels catering for mass tourism. The Polynesian decoration including the flowers are all through artificial (plastic). Only the birds, fish and turtles are real. The hotel offers mainly all inclusive packages targeting British and local tourists. You can actually spend your holiday without leaving the complex. The breakfast buffet is OK... More

We recently returned from a fortnight at the Polynesia hotel. We were slightly apprehensive after seeing recent poor reviews but we went and had a fab time. I'll be honest the food was very repetitive and never hot but adequate. Even the pickiest of eaters would find food aplenty. Failing that you could head to fuengirola or benalmadena marina and...

If you are looking for a great family holiday for young children who in their words will have the best time of their life then this place is great. Just don't expect gourmet Michelin star food - it's very basic all inclusive. My 2 and 5 year old boys had a ball. They could have happily spent all day every... More

Just come back from two week holiday at this hotel. This hotel is lovely with good sized accommodation. The food is very good with plenty of choices. Hotel was very helpful when my daughter split her head open late at night and helped to arrange taxi to hospital. Friendly staff and a lovely hotel for teenagers to make new friends
