A resort with a number of pools, lagoons, and outdoor facilities. Checking in and out was quick and efficient and the staff were courteous and helpful. The room was OK but the beds, pillows and blankets seemed to be old and not comfortable. The AC is a bit noisy and the safety deposit box was very small. There are several...

I can only recommend this hotel, I have never before received better service in any luxury hotel/resort. All staff polite in all situations and all times of the day, also when meeting them on my morning run. Only point this hotel can be better is the food, which for my taste was a little boring, but that could be my...

Lots to do around the resort. Great for families and kids. The free horse and carriage as well as bicycles added to the experience. We stayed at two different types of rooms at the resort as they were fully booked for the Chinese NY holidays. Loved both rooms. The staff were extra friendly and helpful. The Spa was also very...

My girlfriend and I visited during Jan2017. Luckily the weather was good during our stay, however we were told that the weather was not good the week before our stay, hence part of the lagoons were closed for cleaning each day, which makes the lagoons available less, luckily was still enough since it is not a high season. The food...

Dear Say A, We wish you had spoken up while you were still here, as we would have been happy to address your concerns promptly. When someone waits days or weeks after the incident before posting critical but vague comments on TripAdvisor, it makes it difficult for us to investigate what the frustration was about. Your opinion of our staff...

Just back from 6 nights at this resort and i am still finding it difficult to find something bad about our whole experience.

Dear Geoffrey L, Like you, most guests don't feel the need to go out of Plantation Bay as there is so much for families to do together here that even if they stay a week, they still feel they still have not discovered and enjoyed everything that we have to offer.

We chose Plantation Bay Resort and Spa as the venue for our family reunion. The resort offers various activities for the kids and adults for all day recreation.
