Unit wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing. Just your average holiday units, they were modern, and very clean! Excellent position next the beach. The rooms had visible wear and tear, our room had a small hole in the tiles. About the size of a 20c piece, big enough to kick your toe on! Very plain units, lacked that beach character...

Thank you for taking the time to review our resort blackhan81, we appreciate and welcome all feedback. Please be assured that I will follow up with the hole in the limestone tile and have this filled immediately. Unfortunately, being limestone, this tile is susceptible to occasional holes, which, when identified are immediately filled and rectified. At Plantation Resort, our apartments...

Stayed in a penthouse apartment. it was stylish well designed large and simply outstanding. you could easily live in it! Suggest staying in a level 2 apartment overlooking the ocean. it does get noisy due to street, park and other guests if you strike a busy weekend. modern, open and great place to stay close to everything. coming back.

Modern large rooms exceptionally clean. Master bedroom and lounge overlooked the ocean - a great way to start the day with a coffee and breakfast cooked on the BBQ. Would certainly recommend this as the place to stay in Rainbow Beach for a weekend getaway (or longer) - very relaxing

This was our second stay at Plantation Resort and again we were not disappointed. The rooms were perfect and had everything we needed. Staff at the resort were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There is a new restaurant across the road called Coffee Rocks (it has some connection with the resort but not sure how) but the...
