Great, Not Perfect

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 May 2024via mobile
Stayed 5 nights at the Little Polynesian and agree with many prior reviews. Firstly, the location is fantastic and offers amazing swimming and views of the reef and ocean. The snorkeling is good, not great. Some fish to be seen but you will find much better in other countries.

What makes the resort special is the staff. They are truly amazing and will go out of their way to make you feel at home. What also is excellent is the food. Never had a bad meal and the setting overlooking the pool is lovely.

To be constructive, I do feel the value proposition could be improved considering the nightly room rate charged. It’s simply not in line with other similar properties in other countries that no doubt they are competing with for the tourist dollar.

Firstly, only offering a continental breakfast is pretty stingy. I would also add that a nightly turndown service would be well served . If for no other reason than to change towels. It seems towels are on short supply here because it was always hard work to get replacements. They don’t have beach towels by the pool, you always have to ask. They don’t give you extra towels in the room and sometimes didn’t even get a bath mat.

The rooms are nice, although the bed and bedding was average in quality and the general condition of the room was just ok. Some wear and tear and no attention paid to fixing things was evident.

All in all we had an enjoyable stay, however they could easily go to the next level if they put some value and focus into addressing the points above.

Very nice location, modern style beachfront bungalows, with all you need for a nice stay and easy snorkeling in the laguna. Warm hospitality. Nice swimming pool with a view over the ocean. What else can I tell you? Relax and enjoy the sound of the ocean against the coral barrier!

Little Polynesian exceeded our expectations. All our needs and wants were catered for with a meticulous eye to detail. The staff were friendly and informative, happily advising of places to visit. The resort is quiet and our privacy was respected. We didn't want to leave.

I have been to over 50 countries which means countless hotel stays. Little Polynesian is by far one of the best experiences I have ever had. From the minute you arrive the staff is so welcoming. They made it a point to learn our names. The wonderful service continued throughout our stay. The rooms were beautiful, modern, and clean. The pool area was extremely relaxing. The highlight is definitely the food at the hotel restaurant, everything was delicious. I want to shout out Meri and Tom for going above and beyond for us during our stay. I hope I am lucky enough to go back one day.

We had a great time here at Little Poly. We were most unlucky with the weather but it was still a relaxing and restful stay. Our pre arrival, transfers, and welcome were handled professionally and without issue. Our accommodation in a beach side bungalow was lovely. The room was exceptionally quiet and had all that was needed. Serviced every day at a decent hour. The food was lovely but eating there over 7 days we had to repeat some dishes! But all were great. Thanks to Greg and Chantelle, Tom our day time waiter and especially Florence who showered us and our friends with love and care when it was needed most! Thanks Florence! We would definitely recommend Little Poly and would love to return to experience what we missed (weather). It’s not cheap but it’s top quality,

Room tip: Definitely a beach bungalow
