Spent a week as a couple at the Holiday Polynesia 19th-26th Oct 2012. We had a brilliant time and there was plenty to do. We paid extra to spend one of our sunny days VIP at the beach club and it was well worth it. We also spent one of our rainy days in the spa in the neighbouring hotel Hydros and although it wasn't cheap (35 euros each but with 25% discount) we had the whole spa to ourselves and it seemed much better equipped than the one in the Polynesia; it even had a view out to sea!
There are many positives to the hotel Polynesia and we felt that they far outweighed any negatives. The only thing is the food isn't always 'hot' but it is cooked well and there is a good variety. Every evening in the buffet restaurant there is a different theme, there is plenty to choose from if you are not too fussy an eater. We also tried the other two restaurants and found them both to be very good; we would recommend the pizza at the Polynesian and the freshly cooked stir-fry food at the Wok.
Outside of the hotel we visited Benalmadena and Fuengirola on separate days. We walked to both places and took the public buses back. The pavements line the roads the whole way (you CAN walk to them). We also went on a tour to Granada but we found it a very long bus journey.
If you like to escape from the hussle and bussle of towns this is the hotel for you!
