Thank you Polynesian for a relaxing stay. Arrived and Kevin was very welcoming, the renovated rooms are well appointed and the lobby looks amazing since my last visit. The resort is under construction and is making great strides. My family enjoyed the slides, arcade and the visit in the downtown Dells.

We have stayed there before and we had a chance to go back and once again we enjoyed the stay at the polynesian. Clean rooms, helpful staff, and it has two lazy rivers. One inside and one outside. Price was right for last minute trip. Shopping and eaterty are close by too.

The staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Especially the sales staff. Wonderful people that will help you with anything you need. You get what you pay for, but the service is outstanding.

Stayed for the first time this weekend, with my husband and our 3 children. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the waterpark, indoor and out, especially the outdoor, loved that it wasn't so crowded that you couldn't enjoy yourself and keep watch on the kids, my two oldest children loved that they didn't have to wait for 2...

We had a lovely time staying here. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We experienced some issues with Expedia and the staff resolved the problems. Will definitely stay again. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The whole hotel was clean. Worth the money.

I've stayed at all the water park resorts over the years. First time at Polynesian I figured they all be the same? Big mistake. This was little cheaper then rest but had I known the condition of hotel- worn carpets-leaks from ceilings down halls-no working ice machines- beds worn out-front desk staff uninterested to help you in any way other...

We had a pretty bad experience at Mount Olympus and the "motel" they put us in. When we called the Polynesian Hotel they were friendly on the phone and even more friendly when we got there. Five star service and our kids loved the water park - even at the ages of 17 and 13. This is the only place...

In a nutshell, this is priced fair for what you get. The rooms I booked (2 adjoining King condos) were new and nice with comfortable beds. The rest of the hotel was run down and not well maintained. Staff would go in front of guests in the one elevator in the building. The hallways and exterior were dirty and not...
