So it will be $638 for the day. i want to have my Kona at that table again!
You were the reason I didn't get the premium cabana last october. What are you doing to me???? JK I really did enjoy the regular one!

Thanks!
Well, aren't we just a varied group of responders Last October, we stayed in Tokelau 1st floor (so a garden view room) and had the 'pod' coffee maker (Not Keurig, but the round pods like tea bags).

Yes filters provided. So I don't see a reason you can't bring your own coffee. Well get in touch with me through pm about the last part.

I deal with people all day every day at work. Meetings.. Meetings... Meetings...
So if we rented the regular cabana I would feel obligated to talk to my neighbor. After all we are sharing a private piece of the Poly. I would rather just chill in privacy. I wouldn't mind a dis-meet but I don't want to hang with another family all day.

I think that is what the others are talking about. The coffee was a filter and coffee combo in a pod shape but not a plastic pod thing like keurig individual cup of coffee thing. It brewed like 2 cups of coffee at a time. Soooo confusing!
I just bring a coffee press and get hot water from CL lounge.

Hey carlnix30 Longtime no see. (I have been lurking and not posting for a few months...ssshhhhh) So you are going to brave the fancy cabana again this year? Even after all the rude folks walked thru and those sugared-high-disrespecting-unsupervised-little-sweet-sweet-treasures ruined the cam shot of the Wishes spectacular?? Must be the lure of punishment to your wallet calling Just kidddinnnggg....So jealous you are heading back to the motherland. I know your family is excited. Hopefully they have added more signage or deterents(sp?) so folks don't intrude on your privacy this time. Are you doing another live cam or is your wife threatening divorce if you dare this year?

Can't reference the actual URL because I don't want to get in trouble!!

But if you want to be perfectly safe in knowing you are going to get your home brew you can always bring a coffee press with you and get your hot water from captain cooks!

Thanks everyone for your responses - it is now clear as mud!

Okay - well, I called the Poly this afternoon and I spoke directly with the head of housekeeping. She told me that in the standard rooms, it is a regular Cuisinart 4 cup coffee maker. I asked if filters were provided for us to add our own grounds from home, and she said that we should bring our own filters at home, since the coffee is served in a pre-portioned "pod" in a vaccum sealed package. (standard fair for most hotels these days) It is just placed into the regular basket and the water runs through it, there is no press, or lever to compress the pod in anyway (like a senseo pod machine would, so I think that's where some of the confusion is coming from)

So we are on the hunt for filters for a 4 cup machine now! Wish me luck!

Hello Poly Peeps

Just booked a quick Sister Weekend scheduled for early December. My SIL and I have both stayed at the Poly multiple times but my sister has never had the pleasure. I decided to book a TPV as a little surprise for everyone. So excited to see my favorite Home Away from Home at Christmas time.
