Polynesian Visit

Dells Advice on June 25th

We made our annual summer trip to the Dells last weekend, and we stayed at the Polynesian again.  This was the second time we have stayed there.  It is not in the same league as the newer, more opulent Dells resorts, but for a weekend stay in the summer with young children, it suits us just fine.  The price was right – around $100 a night for a two room suite.  The water park is perfect for the 8 and under crowd. 

The resort has its drawbacks.  The only dining option is a snack bar with burgers, pizza, and various other unhealthy fried selections.  The indoor water parks are old and worn out.  The outdoor water park though is just right for families with young children.  A big hit with the kids is the pirate ship (pictured below).  One of the things I like best about the Polynesian are the rooms.  We have always stayed in two room suite, which is their most economical room type.  The two room suite has a living room in the front with a bedroom in the back, and seems larger than most Dells hotel rooms.

I noticed in the lobby of the hotel there was a big sign indicating that they are going to be converting the hotel into condos, and undergoing a major renovation.  I’ll write more about that in a future post, but I am glad to see that they are updating their look.  I love the Polynesian theming and would like to continue visiting this resort in the future.  Maybe with the renovations, I’ll want to come here durng the off season too.
