Once again, a late review for Plantation Bay. May be I just don't want to share this hotel to anyone but to keep it to myself. Stayed there last June for 7 days, everything was prefect. Staffs were friendly as remembered. We ordered our breakfast take outs from Kilimanjaro Café and bought it back to our balcony to enjoy. Their...

This is our 3rd time coming here and decided to almost bring the whole clan again. This little paradise is almost a home to us and never cease to surprise us. We got 4 rooms this time (2 two-bedroom suite and 2 lagoon view rooms). We have 7 children with us and so happy that with the 2 nights and...

Plantation Bay has one of the most beautiful ambiance of a hotel in the country. Hands down, if you are looking for a romantic getaway, Plantation Bay is it. The beds are old charm, the rooms are spacious enough. And the moment you step out of the veranda, the lagoon meets you in all its splendor. But let me take...

This place promotes itself as a family friendly resort. Well IT IS NOT! We planned our multi country large family vacation here and very disappointed right from check in. When we were told that our "family suite" was upstairs, I told them that we had some elders with us that could not make the stairs and it would have been...

I was there last year for business. Loved it so much that I decided to take the family this time. We have two boys, ages 5 and 7. We spent 12 days there and were never bored. There is so much to do and the service is incredible. From check-in to check-out and every day in between, we had an...

We spent nearly a week at Plantation Bay and loved every day. I was worried that we would run out of things to do or get bored with the food, but we didn't. Breakfast is different every day, and we opted to do 2 of the themed dinner nights - Filipino and Espana. The food and entertainment were wonderful. We...

We had the best time. Amazing location great restaurants (especially the dragon maki) and the staff simply made it.. Lani, Al-Jo, Bon, Anthony to name a few... They especially made our boys holiday - a huge thank you! We did worry we'd get bored of the food - not at all. It felt like being all inclusive without actually having...

We enjoyed a day at the grounds of the resort. There are plenty of pools, lagoons and activities for kids, adults. The beach is not great, one can do snorkeling and diving though. The buffet lunch was Filipino style, and one can choose from the menu for something international.

Dear littleexplorer2017, Plantation Bay's primary form of landscaping is water, and we're glad that while here, you enjoyed the view and our saltwater lagoons and four different freshwater pools of varying design. Thank you for the kind review. Hopefully you can stay longer next time so you can try and Spa and experience everything that we have to offer. Sincerely,...

This waterfront hotel goes with lagoon style pool and dining options. Anybody can really enjoy the facilities this hotel can offer. Free bike rides, free calesa ride, to name a few. The villa we stayed is awesome! We also got free dried mangoes complementary of this hotel. Will definitely go back!
