“Despite the construction, a very comfortable stay”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

We knew going in that the Poly was under construction for the new DVC villas. And despite a few inconveniences, it was still a very comfortable stay. Disney did a nice job of blocking the view of the mess with temporary walls that were painted to match the decor and added photo op cut outs of Disney characters. But we were still able to experience some of the finer aspects of this deluxe resort.

OHANA, OHANA, OHANA!!! Get your reservation the minute to book your trip. Best restaurant on the property!
Comfortable room with plenty of space
Roomy and more upscale bathroom
Mini fridge
Very friendly front desk staff
Easy access to monorail and ferry boat

Pathway to transportation center (monorail to Epcot) was detoured due to the construction. The detour pathway is an extra long walk compared to the normal route.
Kids' club was closed due to construction.
Volcano themed pool was closed due to construction, but to be fair, they provided guests with access to the Grand Floridian large pool and a one day pass to Blizzard Beach. We didn't use it, but appreciated it nonetheless.

Overall, we had a great time. I would stay here again.

I didn't know what to expect since I didn't research this hotel at all (my co-worker chose it and I followed along). I arrived and was pleasantly surprised. It was almost like a Hawaiian experience (I say almost because nothing compares to being at the real thing). You are greeted everywhere with "Aloha" and when you arrive you are given a lei. Cute touch. The actual room was excellent. The beds were great, everything was extremely clean, loved the decor. The bathroom had double sinks and even though I was solo it is always good to know there are 2 sinks for future bookings. The only thing I was disappointed in was that the main pool was under construction. There was no mention of this at any time during booking.

This hotel is undergoing extensive renovation. It will be fantastic when finished but at the moment it isn't fair to be paying top disney prices to stay here when there are so many other great disney hotels. Several areas are boarded up and there isn't really much of a disney feel and several facilities are closed.

We were here for a long weekend last month and had a pleasant experience. We have two small children and the proximity to Disney and the monorail was ideal. We knew about the renovations beforehand, so it wasn't a shock. I read some of the complaints before our stay, and frankly I think those are the type of people who just like to have something to complain about. The main pool was still open at that time, I don't know if I would want to be there after its closing. The entire staff, from front desk to housekeeping, was extremely friendly and helpful the entire stay. The dinner at Kona Café was excellent, the quick service restaurant on the first floor was better than average. The luau was fun for the whole family. I would recommend this resort, but not until the main pool re-opens.

This hotel is great because it also has access to the monorails! I usually stay at the Contemporary, but sometimes it fills up. The tropical theme is cute, and the lush garden like landscape is a nice touch. I haven't used the pools, but the grounds are nice and the rooms are nice. Be careful staying in the garden rooms! They can be EXTREMELY far away from the monorail and lobby, making for a long walk after a long day in the parks.

It's a nice themed hotel but compared to the others I've stayed in the parks I found the layout complicated, maybe because it was under renovation on the main areas. It was raining at times so getting to and from the room was a hassle. The pool area is really nice with water slides and a great view of Magic Kingdom's fireworks at night.

This hotel is really nice and service is great. It's right inside the Magic Kingdom which is an excellent choice to begin with. You can either use the monorail or ferry to get to and back from the Magic Kingdom. Also, you can use the monorail for Epcot as well. The only time you need to use the shuttle is for Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. It saves you time, which to us was great. Room service is awesome. I would recommend this hotel, even with the construction, to my family and friends. :-))

Room Tip: I like the rooms close to the marina or the aloha show area.
