We also enjoyed an Arabian Nights Dinner Show one evening that was just a few miles from the resort. It was really superb! Polynesian Isles Resort offers discounted tickets to the show for its guests.Best Things About the Resort:We liked the fact that we had an end unit townhouse-style timeshare, and that we were on the ground level. The view from our master bedroom was so lovely-the fountain in the water, going constantly, was a beautiful sight!
The grounds throughout the resort are very well kept.
There are computers for your use, for a fee, in the Registration/Activities Building. AND, at the registration desk, you can learn about the complimentary family vacation portrait, offered by Polynesian Isles! One portrait per unit during your stay!
Resort Experience:We found it to be a very pleasant atmosphere, kinda hidden away out of the way of high-traffic areas! It is just a couple of blocks from a main thoroughfare, though, so there is easy access to Disney and other places you want to get to.
The resort staff was very friendly and helpful to us!
There are a lot of palm trees on the grounds, making it very "balmy-like" and very pretty!
The resort tennis courts were in good condition, and we enjoyed a game or two there!
The outdoor pool was heated and just wonderful, a lot of people were enjoying it.
The resort hosts a pool party on Thursday evening. Great food is served for a small price! The entertainment that evening was fun-Tahitian female dancers performed, and there was a male soloist, as well. Also, there was karaoke the latter part of the evening. We enjoyed the party tremendously! We had to get a few pictures for our memories of course!

The interior was reasonably roomy, but a little dark. The master bedroom was good sized and the master bath was very roomy and well equipped. The guest bedroom and bath were more traditional in design and size. The kitchen was well-equipped, but appeared a little dated.
The check-in precudre included an irritating feature. After we were given our key, wwe were told to report to the next desk to get our activity packet. This turned out to be a pitch to try and get us to go to a sales breakfast. I am used to getting a sales call at a resort, but I was surprised to have to jump through these hoops just to get activity information.

Our suite was a two-bedroom, each having its own bathroom. The master bedroom had a king size bed, and a chaise lounge. The master bath was huge; it had a jacuzzi tub, shower stall, double sinks. Each bedroom had a TV, plus one in the living room. The rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable. It also had a screened-in back porch with two chairs and a table.

The units are beautiful and very spacious. There are two styles of two-bedroom units. I prefer the Stage 1 units. They are larger, but less modern than Stage 2 units. I also prefer the first floor because I enjoy the ground floor screened patio at night.
The staff is very helpful and accommodating, especially maintenance and the Activities Director. My daughter spent nearly as much time with the Activities Director as with me. She met other kids that regularly participated in activities and had friends for the week. She keeps in contact with one of those friends she made still. This is a beautiful resort, very family friendly and relaxing.
