Just got off phone with a CM who told me that the pool is down for refurb from February 18-March 1 and will reopen March 2. Does anyone know how on time they are with their refurb schedules? I would hate to tell my girls they cannot swim while there!

Just to let you know I just got off the phone with a CM and she said the pool will be closed February 18-March1 for renovations!

Tikiman's fb said poly pool would be done after GF which is due to be complete in March. I don't think they would have both pools closed at the same time.
We were at Poly last March during refurb and were offered the boat to GF to use the pool there.

I had originally requested a balcony at Poly but now am thinking about switching to a first floor patio. Can you enter and exit through the patio door when locked/to lock it? I wonder how likely we'd use the patio if we still have to exit the man door to lock it.

I think the CM's at least the ones I've spoke to know less than most people on the boards. The slide was closed during part of our last stay but kids still enjoyed pool and when the slide opened my son must have went down over 100 times, they did not want to switch resorts even with the slide being down.

You have to lock from inside, I had requested 3rd floor last visit but got 1st and loved it, kids could go in and out it was great

I hope so! We are there March 4-6 and are doing resort only the first day so hoping it is open! Do you think we will be okay then?
I wonder why they don't get updated and people on these boards seem to know more....doesn't seem to make much sense....BUT I have learned tons from all the experts on here so I believe them!!!

I had to convince DH to stay onsite vs bonnet creek where we normally stay so if this doesn't go well it may be our first and last time onsite!!

Tokelau is a great longhouse. The walk to lobby or pool is beautiful and is not that far. Tokelau and Tahiti are the buildings Ive stayed in and I loved both.

Probably only something that you can answer based on you and who you are travelling with. We LOVE the club level... we travel with 2 kids and spend much of our afternoons at the resort. We couldn't be happier with being able to get snacks, drinks, breakfast, and adult drinks for when the kids fall asleep. I also LOVE the location of the Hawaii building and watching fireworks from the lounge. For these things I give up the view and stay garden view club. We don't spend too much awake time in our room. That being said, if you don't think that you would take advantage of those perks and would be spending time enjoying your room then the view would be more important to you.

Good luck making the decision!

Any thoughts from recent Poly guests?
We were first floor Samoa 12/2-12/8 and it was wonderful. Of course our view was pool level so construction at GF was no problem. There was work being done on the quiet pool side of Samoa. The entire longhouse was blocked off on that side as was Niue. Our stay at Poly was amazing as always and I can't wait to return!
