Historical Traveler Reviews Polynesian Resort Hotel Wisconsin Dells
Will definitely go back to the Polynesian
We loved the Polynesian. It has fun things to do for all ages. There are areas for toddlers and younger kids, and the water slides and lazy rivers, indoor and outdoor, are fun for adults, too! The rooms were clean and the hotel seemed well-maintained. The room was a little pricey, but we did stay on a weekend. The only complaint is that the bar and grill was a little too pricey. I think you could charge a little less for a burger or a daquari and still make a tidy profit.
When you are spending this much on a hotel, you really don't want to have to leave during the day so you can get your money's worth, so it would be nice if the food and drinks were a little cheaper. Our kids loved the game room, and the breakfast buffet was a good deal. We have been to the Raintree (which is also nice) and the Atlantis (which is nice, too), but the Polynesian by far is our favorite.
Great For Younger Kids!
TERRIFIC FOR YOUNGER KIDS!!We've been several times over the last few years & love this facility. Our boys are (now) 10 & 7 and we feel this will still be the place we go for another year or so. It is a smaller facility, but with little kids that is a good thing! It is a very restful, relaxing place for parents - we go in the off- season or mid-week when it's not so crowded & are able to let the boys roam around while still keeping an eye on them. If your kids are used to huge amusement parks & thrill rides it probably won't be exciting enough for them. We often choose to stay next door at the Polynesian Isle - cheaper rates, newer facility & less crowded. Have fun!
Liked the Polynesian
We were lucky and had great weather for our three night stay. We had a room overlooking the pool and found that very nice since we could watch our kids (12,10) in the pool below. We liked the outdoor water area but the inside would be too small if it rained the whole time like in a previous review. The hotel was quite at night and pretty well maintained. The only issue was a bathroom vent fan that was loud enough to wake the dead.
There were no lines on the slides and our girls loved the place. We would go back.
It was ok
We just got back from the Dells, it rained the entire time and there are better indoor water parks than the Polynesian but we didn't plan on it raining the entire time. Would have enjoyed the outdoor waterpark as we did last year if it was warmer. Our room was kind of nasty smelling, the bathroom was awful, smelled of cat urine. They did come and clean it and that helped. It was sunny our last day there and it would have been nice if they had told us we could have used the waterpark for the whole day, we received a newsletter when we got home. Since check in is at 4:30 and check out is at 11AM you feel a little cheated. I think we will try somewhere else next year. It appeared to be getting a little run down also.
We have been coming to the Dells for over 20 years. We used to take our children and now take our grandchildren. We have stayed at the Polynesian for many years. Tried one of the other resorts a couple years ago and it did not compare to the Polynesian. Our grandchildren are ages 10, 4 and 2, and there is so much for them to do. Even if the weather isn't perfect, there is a wonderful indoor water area for them. We will be coming back for many more years. Each year as we plan the trip for next year the grandchildren always ask for the Polynesian.
Watch your credit card. I was charged on my credit card and also paid cash when I arrived. The girl that checked me in did not say that my credit card was charged and ask me how I wanted to pay the bill. My stay was horrible because the people above me kept me up and security did nothing about it.
Not Family Orientated
Waterpark was not worth what we paid for our rooms. We would have liked to have more activites for the kids, They were bored almost immeadiately! Sorry, But we wont be back!
Loved The Pool and Game Room
My family and I stayted here and Rachel and Josh went to the pool and Gameroom every day. they Met kids and had a lot of fun. I think we might stay here again.
Loved the Polynesian
I have been to the polynesian 3 times and am pleased to say that I will not go to another hotel. I was treated with respect and loved the water parks. I have been to the dells about 10 times, but after being at the polynesian I will not say anywhere else.
Great Indoor Water Park for Little Kids
We took our two children, who were 2 and 5 years old to the Indoor Waterpark in February and had a great time! The zero depth water play area was perfect for our two year old and our five year old loved the water slides. Probably would not be the best resort for older children, but great for the little ones!

Dinner with Nathaniel and Karen and their two kids was nice. Then it was a long drive back. It was a very successful day and a great way to end our time in Wisconsin, we would be leaving in the morning to head back to Chicago.

I can imagine it would have had great spiritual meaning and I could imagine groups of hunters staying here as they hunted the mammoths at the edge of the glacier. We didn't spend long here, less than an ...
... in deep rushing water for way too long. Canoeing is Russ's thing, though this was his first time on a river rather than a lake. I'm terrified of tipping over. So with the Kickapoo running about 1 ft average I didn't have to fear for my life. We were going rain or shine, but I was really glad the rain held off. We went with Drifty's and they were great. Easy going ...
