Hotel Polynesia  

This place has been designed to feel like a South Pacific island. So there’s a waterfall and a rope bridge in the lobby, and a birds of paradise aviary in the grounds.

This hotel comes with a huge, lagoon pool. And it’s just a really short shuttle bus ride to the beach club and waterpark, which are open in summer. There’s a buffet restaurant that serves international cuisine and a lunch place over at the beach club.

The hotel’s in a gated complex with the other hotels that make up the Holiday World Resort. It’s at the top of a hill, overlooking Caravajal beach, which is a 15-minute walk away.

Outdoor pool

A large, lagoon-style pool takes centre stage at the hotel. Lined by a terrace with sunbeds to enjoy the sea views from.

Buffet restaurant*

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with children's options, this restaurant makes a statement with an arched, glass ceiling. Dinner options include meat or fish, and there's show cooking, too. Special dietary needs and vegetarians can be catered for if prior notice is given. Highchairs are available.

Beach Club

Open during the summer, the Beach Club waterpark overlooks the sea. There are rapids to float around on, waterslides, a pirate ship, splash zones and even giant sandpits with equally giant elephant statues. If that sounds too much like hard work, there are quieter areas with in-water sun loungers too. A shuttle bus service to the Beach Club is provided and the journey takes just a few minutes - just ask at reception.

A golfing holiday

I stayed in this hotel for a week at the end of February 2015 with 15 other friends. The rooms were excellent. We had " junior suites" . Very comfortable. Our holiday was all inclusive arranged through the Golf Amigos company. The restaurant was very large and the food varied. It wasn't always to our taste but there was a large choice. The meat seemed to be, not surprisingly, cheapish cuts. Quite fatty. The salad bar was very good. Desserts also were quite filling, although healthy items were available. The bar served drinks, but under the terms of the holiday only local beers, wines and spirits were available under our all inclusive deal. Some of these were best drunk with mixers! All in all a good experience. Not sure I would go back as it was a bit big and touristy for my taste , but for the purposes of a base for playing golf it was fine. More

Fabulous Hotel and great holiday

The hotel was spotless and very impressive. It was quiet but we expected that, it was February! We didn't have a problem with the food, it was you expect from an all inclusive hotel. There were free morning trips out to local places which was unexpected but great for an out of season break, visit Mijas village! The staff at the hotel were friendly and really helpful, they helped us book a day trip to Gibraltar, again highly recommended.. Yes the hotel is out of the way but it makes no secret of this on its website. There is a free bus up and down the hill but never felt the need to use it, it's not that far! The bus stop is at the bottom of the hill where you can catch the local bus into the nearby towns. All in all we had a fab holiday and will be back again at the same time next year!More

Helen K,

Holiday Time

I cannot wait until tomorrow evening when I will be returning for the 3rd time to the Polynesia. This will be the first time out of season but given the hotel , the excellent staff and the high standards it will not be in any way disappointing. Out of season or not there is plenty to do we hire a car and drive into the mountains stunning is not the word. Looking forward to spending my next week with you with hopefully a room overlooking the pool/sea. A delayed birthday treat and I can't wait, see you tomorrow x Will have to complete a travel date but actually arriving sunday morning x Tracey NortonMore

Tracey N,

Great rooms, convenient when having small kids.

Large Hotel with nice facilities and athmosphere. Altough very busy,the staff was helpful with kids and other requests. Only downside was that there was just one restaurant and a long walk down to the beach. Twin-room apartments were great value and very convenient for us. Modern, style and clean. Nice big balcony terrace, Lots of elevators out of service and we had to really wait long. (we had a baby stroller so the stairs were not an option).More

Arjen v,

Happy holiday!More
