Yay looking forward to pics of the refurbed lounge!


I have one of the ceramic coffee mugs and just like a PP said, the decal is not glazed onto the mug. Even with hand washing, the edges of it are fading. Otherwise I love the mug, and use it, but I'm very careful about washing it.

I love the look of the new Polynesian t-shirts. Can you let us know which shirts have designs on the front AND the back? Also, any Polynesian sweatshirts? Thanks so much!

We are in Tokelau. Have been here since Saturday. Looks like they are still working on about 1/2 the rooms (just finishing touches, so there is no noise or construction issues)

Room is wonderful! Live the location.

Hope you have a great time!! The new rooms and lounge are lovely. We spent a lot of money on the new Poly merchandise. I hope they have sweatshirts when we come back in October. Looking forward to your pics.

Just back from an 8 night stay at the Poly. We did online check in and requested Samoa. When we arrived, we were given a ground floor room in Samoa facing the volcano pool! Awesome view. I have to say that we loved the new look of the renovated room too! It felt luxurious and was much brighter. Big improvement IMO.

Quick question, why the heck is the volcano pool so crowded?? Multiple times during our trip we'd head over in the afternoon and there were no chairs available. Definitely annoying and made me wonder if people were using the Poly pool who weren't resort guests.

Overall, perfect stay and we really enjoyed drinking pina coladas on the beach while watching Wishes.

Standard. We didn't have a direct view of the pool, more of the plants. Great location!

Pool view is not a bookable category at the Poly.

I posted on tikiman's site that we got Tokelau on Saturday. They had just released some rooms at 2 pm and more are opening up each day. No noise that I can hear other than the jet flushing toilets!! The room renovations are fairly subtle with the most changes in the bathroom. I love the new look of the bathroom but hate the two sinks. I always liked one sink in Tokelau and now there is very little counter space (not even space under the counters) and no line in the shower to hang wet suits. I'm glad I have my hanging toiletry bag and extra hangers! The CMs are super and have gone above and beyond to make our stay fabulous!! Poly is still my favorite resort!!

My kids and I watched Lilo & Stitch today in preparation for our fall stay at the Poly! I'd never seen it before - what a sweet story. Even though I had known the definition of the word 'Ohana, the movie gave it so much more meaning. Now I'm looking forward to Poly and our 'Ohana breakfast even more!!!

Our DD is a bit obsessed with Lilo and Stitch! We love it too!!! Helps us get in the Poly frame of mind!

We are at the Poly now! Got a fabulous room with a great view! Requested Samoa, first floor and that's exactly what we got! Except we also got on volcano pool side and have a great view of the pool! Also got a microwave! This location is awesome! Close to the main building, pools, and beach! Love our first stay at the Poly!
