I was thinking about requesting Raro tonga, Niue, or Toke Lau. Does anyone have any ideas? Which longhouse and any specific view or location? Thanks so much!!
Just stayed in Niue with a 6&8 yr old, loved it!!!

Poly Vacation 9/14-9/21!!!!!

Arriving on 11/29.

Those who requested/got the rooms you wanted - how did you do it?

The online check-in allows you to check two somewhat vague boxes (longhouse and floor).

Are you calling (what # do you call), faxing (what # did you fax), help?

Thanks.

The best way is to call the reservation line and add your requests to your reservation.

When we were there the 1st week in September they had Joffrey's coffee in the room but still had the Nescafe at Captain Cooks. I didn't care for the taste of Joffrey's but it was still better than the Nescafe, better yet is the 100% Kona or Kona Blend.

I put in my request when I do online check-in as well as call. The past 3 years we have stayed there I have put in a request and the request was met each time. Keep in mind though, they are not obligated to honor the request but they will try their best.

They chuck out faxes ' now apparently, i always call and speak with CM and explain how much you really want that room. We always specify a floor too. We have yet to be disappointed......
