MUST READ!!! If you want to stay at this resort! Where do I start? I guess at the very beginning. Upon arrival at the airport we were immediately greeted by one of their staff, we were assisted with our luggage to our waiting cars despite being delayed for an hour. Upon arrival at the resort we were brought directly to...

We had our Company Summer Outing last March 25, 2017 and it was a perfect and excellent outing. Staffs are accommodating and very helpful especially the one who was in charged for the team building activity. Ms. Andi Lim, Account Executive, was very friendly and warm while assisting us. The foods were so delicious and plenty to eat. The place...

With Plantation Bay we've got the best 5-star experience ever. It's the best place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, they served the best filipino foods and the service they offer is very commendable. But what makes our experience the best, is the very accommodating staff specially to Karina,Arielle and Rassyl. We would definitely come back.

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...

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...

Dear Regal O, We are glad that you appreciated your romantic room accommodations, with a mahogany four-poster king bed and direct access to and scenic views of our expansive North saltwater lagoons. Since most of our guests in fact bring toothbrushes, we don't include them in the usual room set-up. We do provide complimentary dental kits on request. Similarly, we...

This is a fabulous and vast resort enjoyable for the whole family. We booked a ground floor lagoon-side room. But our room turned out to be actually about more than 10 paces away from the lagoon. So not quite lagoon-side as we expected which was a bit disappointing. But nevertheless, the room was lovely and spacious with two queen-side beds....
