Ordering a cake is a crap shoot. I ordered one for our 10th anniversary last year, also from the CR. I had worked out all of the details with Chef Brian. I had seen all of the lovely pictures of cakes out of his bakery, but when I saw our cake I wanted to cry. It was horrible! It looked soo amateurish and like it had just been thrown together. It was so horrible, in fact, that the manager at the CG compted us the cake (worth about $75) without me even complaining. She came right over to our table when it came out, offered us her congratulations on our anniversary and said the cake was on them (plus they threw in some champaign). It tasted great, but looked terrible. So disappointed. A safer bet might be one of the mini wedding cakes from the GF bakery, rather than a custom cake.

(Breezysmom actually knows this - she was there at the time and I think saw the abonimation LOL, but I just wanted to warn others that the custom cakes can be hit and miss!)

We also requested Tokelau for September. Wondering when it will be done and if I should add another longhouse request.

Any suggestions?
Is Tokelau between GCH and TTC?
Why not try Fiji. It's right next to the volcano pool and GCH, we always request Marina view.

I am hoping for our next trip to be October 2013. I've been tucking away money in a milk jug hidden in the laundry room. So, I can't wait to catch up on this thread and live vicariously through you all!
Same here! Now it's the only resort my husband and I want to stay at, but it is pricey. Good luck on your trip for next year!

Is Tokelau the first to be renovated or have they already started on others?

Hello. We are now thinking about staying at the Poly in January. But I'd like to know about any closures like with the swimming pool fences going up and what rooms will be renovated by then. Is Tikiman Facebook usually up to date? Better to call hotel? (as well as keep tabs on these boards as well!).

Also, dumb question, how do I find Tikiman on Facebook? I just joined and am accessing with an iPhone. I didn't see a fb link on his website. Thanks.
