We were at the poly last week in tokelau and checked out on Sunday (Jan 27). We were in room 2943 and while waking down the hall on the first floor right below our room (so the rooms 1945 and down,) there was a very strong smell of mold.everyone in my family noticed and we said if our room was down there we definitely would have had to move. There was no smell of mold in our room though.

Of course no one wants to see mold growing in their resort rooms. But when you are in an area where heat and humidity are a fact of life you have to realize that mold and mildew are also a fact of life and something that has to be battled constantly. And while unsightly, not all molds are pathogenic. I'm sure management was grateful that you reported the problem so that they could deal with it.
Not true, we're very healthy people who do not have allergies. My husband and I were house hunting. We walked into a house and in under 5 minutes, I started feeling choked up, then my husband and the agent started feeling unwell. Turned out there was black mold growing in a cabinet near the sink.

I agree mold DOES make people sick. It makes me and DS son sick. DS had to be rushed to the emergency due to black mold we had in an apartment before. I had to break my lease and get out of there asap!!
