It does not have one, but next to the shower one is hanging (for your towel) you could use that one, but awfully close to shower!

I saw sail boats while there, right across from sea raycers!

OK, I'm doing the last-minute second-guessing.

I never made a request for a Longhouse for this trip.
Even when we have made requests in the past, they often weren't granted and what we got turned out really great anyway.
Then last year at the CR, I had made no requests and we got a surprise upgrade at check-in to a huge hospitality suite! I know it was not because I made no requests, but it made me superstitious!

But now I am second-guessing my decision. We were in Rarotonga last time and really liked it. If I were going to make a request that would be it. But we might like another building even better. Is it even too late to call in a request to be added to our ressie now anyway?

What do you guys think?

If you enjoy the surprise, I would say just go without a request.

Almost there! 47 more days! I'm hoping we're going to love it here. It looks beautiful! We have stayed at the Contemporary twice before. Any advice? I requested the Tokelau longhouse for the central location.

Thanks for the update. We are heading to the Poly 2 weeks from tomorrow and were wondering if they were still wristbanding.

Thanks logpey!

Thanks for sharing all of the wonderful pictures! We can't wait to be back and thinking of doing the cabana for one of the 1/2 days. With such a short trip I don't think we can spend a full day at the pool. However, may do a full day in June 2012.

Is there a maximum capacity for the regular cabanas? What about the larger one?
