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.

Facilities ► View all

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

The Beach Club waterpark overlooks the sea and is open during the summer months. 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.

Decent hotel, poor food

Hotel and installations are ok, its a good looking place but lacks basic things like free parking, free WIFI and free safe in room. The restaurant food however, is terrible! We had dinner and breakfast and in both occasions, the quality of the cooked food was not that expected from a hotel of this calibre. Even the bread appeared to be at least a day old! Its a good location, but would reconsider having any food here again. More

Fantastic hotel

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to visit Belamadina without being near all the pubs and clubs. The rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable. The games room is fantastic for the evenings. Great shop on site for essentials. With an 11 year old with us the deal of unlimited Internet for 7 days was fantastic. It's our second time to visit and not the last!More

So thankyou hotel Polynesia for giving us a brilliant relaxing week .regards Barry & Linda quiney.More


Not four star

No welcome when we arrived, no how did you enjoy your holiday when we left. Food not up to standard for the star rating, very disappointing. No waiter service at our meal and help yourself drinks at dinner and lunch. Felt like they didn't want to make an effort for you to return, which we wouldn't be.More


Nice wrong place

Lovely hotel just very isolated, nearest shops etc at least 2 hour walk, buses down the hill every 30 mins. Altho was a winter holiday the hotels facilities were very limited, alot of older prople here who all complained at the lack of services for time of year, the bus down the hill was few and far between. Staff in bar were quite rude and food in restaurant cold, the only day it was hot and more choice was when 120 hairdressers at a convention arrived..what a difference that made., Entertainment was painful , I'm sure they could find better singers. Overall I wouldnt go back to this hotel.More
