We stayed at this place for 7 days the last week of July. This was our 3rd time and every year we've requested and received a room with a pool view which we love. The room was basic and clean and it also had a mid-size fridge which was perfect for our groceries. On almost all of our vacations, anywhere,... More

My friend was visiting from FL and we decided to go to the Dells for the weekend. I originally booked the RainTree Resort as I didn't want to spend $400 for one night at a hotel such as Great Wolf or the Wilderness who were ripping people off for that particular weekend. I made a huge mistake when looking on... More

Three things that were enough to never stay here again!!! We found a bug in the pull out sofa and one in one of the beds. The music that is played in the pool/playground area is classic ROCK which is so inappropriate for young children!!!!! There was noise in the hallway until 1:30am. We let the front desk know about...

3 things I can say about this place- What a dump, what a dump, and what a dump. I cannot believe the scam that they run here. They sell you on the Polynesian Resort and stick you in the next hotel partner the Polynesian Isle. Oh what a terrible place to bring a family. If you have any self respect... More

Well, I will say that initally I was very disappointed with our room. It was damp and had a terrible smell..almost like cat urine--very disgusting. I really didn't want to spend the time complaining and really wanted to make the best of our family time....we spent Friday outdoors and playing in the slides and relaxing. The food at the bar...

This hotel was a good value for the money! The water park area was much bigger than I expected, and there was a good variety of slides/pools, etc. We stayed there with children ranging in age from 8 months to 15 years, and there was something for everyone! Even my elderly father enjoyed the nice lazy river. (There was an... More

Just got back from a second stay at the Polynesian. Last summer we stayed at the Polynesian Isle and found everything was just fine (except for the partiers above us). This year I struggled between Great Wolf and the Polynesian, but decided on the Polynesian because of the difference in price (Great Wolf was about $50 more a night). We... More

Can't say enough good things! Beautiful hotel, fun fun fun waterparks (in/out-door), and restaurant/bar! The weather didn't cooperate much with us, but the indoor waterpark kept the kids busy and fun was had by all!! I would deffinantely stay there again!!

The rooms are disgusting and totally outdated! I didn't want to set anything down anywhere. We pulled out the sofa bed to find blood stains on the sheets and clumps of dried up food on the couch. The carpet felt sticky. The box springs were stained at the edges. The chain on the door was ripped off. I could go... More

Overall, this hotel was a nice 2 night stay with only a few minor faults. For example, I didn't like that the beds and pillows were very firm. They had a large outdoor waterpark, an indoor activity pool area, and a small indoor waterpark. They had many water activites for the kids with somewhat warm water, but I didn't like... More
