The hotel wasn't what i thought when I got there but when explored and once I saw what they had to offer i realized I was gonna have a good time! I thought the price was reasonable. The sevice was great and the hotel was very clean.

Would we stay here again? No we wouldn’t. We stayed for 2 nights, the beds were rock hard and so were the pillows-in fact we almost left after the first night! The rooms are beyond old and worn down. Our shower/tub still had “hair” from another person in it! Everything about the room was old and outdated. NO INTERNET!! The... More

We brought our kids here and overall had a fun time. I was sort of disappointed because it seems kind of run down. It needs a lot of maintenance done. The slides and park gear are peeling and seem sort of old. The pool water was sort of cloudy and kinda dirty. Room was nice and clean. No bed bugs... More

Upon walking into the room, the floor was damp after taking off our shoes. The room smelled of mold! We stayed on the first floor, and had a two queen sofa room next to a door entrance. Everything in the room was a trip back to the 90's. No flat screen TVs, no Internet, even the comforter on the bed... More

In hindsight, I would have gladly spent more money to go to a newer hotel. The water park was a very enjoyable. There were no lines during our stay. However, the quality of the room was shockingly poor. I had to ask for a different room because the first one smelled like pet urine. Essentially everything in the room (beds,... More

We were meeting up with relatives from MN and we are from IL we had a 6 yr. old boy with us and were looking for a waterpark that would interest him, somewhere we could have a little fun too. Was just big enough and provided enough activities for the time spent there. Rooms were OK Hide-a-bed sofa could have... More

After reading several reviews I was a little undecided on staying here because of some of the mixed reviews. I am happy to say our family vacation from 6/23 to 6/28 was wonderful. When we checked in one of our three rooms had an a/c problem, which was quickly addressed and I was upgraded to a wonderful suite. The staff... More

Myself, my adult daughter and 7 month old grand daughter arrived at the Polynesian on Wednesday, July 4th at 2 pm, departing on Friday, July 6th, 2012. I am willing to compromise by requesting a refund of $179.00, the cost to me for one night stay. My request is due to the following reasons: 1. We walked into room 108... More
