Great location and amazing customer service! I was very impressed with the Polynesian Residence and believe it has great value. A very short walk to Waikiki Beach and right in the middle of all the action. I would recommend trying to get a room on the street side just to see the city in action. Their is a very nice pool and a small balcony to enjoy your morning coffee. I will be back to the Polynesian!!

I checked out the property last time I was in Hawaii. I was so glad that I did not book that property. It could ruin the vacation. The pictures are deceiving. The property was old and did not kept well. The pool was small and the area was grungy. The location is good.
