My husband and I spent 8 nights at beautiful Plantation in April this Year. This was our 5th visit to the Island having our first visit back in 2010. This visit was for our Wedding and we couldn’t have chosen a better place to say “I do”. We had 35 guests at our Wedding, all of whom stayed at Plantation...

My first trip away with our now 2 year old, after visits to Malaysia and Vietnam as a couple, left us wishing that we had stayed in Australia and gone to Queensland. The two things that stood our was the food and safety. The food was terrible. Breakfast was fine, but lunch was the same menu each day and nothing...

Had a lovely stay at Plantation Island Resort (PIR). The beaches are fantastic and the snorkelling was great. A short trip on the boat takes you to an even better reef to explore. There is a water slide and jumping castle at the main beach which the kids loved. We stayed on the Lomani side of the resort and were...

Every time I read bad reviews about this place I thought people were winging and had no idea how to enjoy themselves .. Until now. This was our 4th time and we knew that the food here was not exactly fine dining- but the location always compensated for this- plus we could always go for a walk to musket cove...

Ok - I read all the reviews of Plantation Island before I arrived and I had an open mind on what to expect. But then I was reminded that I am paying over $200 AUD bucks a night - surely it can't be that bad - I think all reviews should keep in mind what the price of the accommodation...

This was our second time to Plantation Island (the previous time was 8 years ago) and whilst some things were new (e.g. coffee and juice bar, the 'water park') or upgraded (some rooms, the snack bar), many things were of the same basic standard (e.g. all three pools, the kids club etc). Plantation has a great location in terms of...

July 2013 was the furthest back the review would let me go but I actually went with my family in October 2011. This island resort is beautiful and fantastic for families, there's plenty to do for everyone and as anywhere in Fiji, the locals are just beautiful, friendly people!

Initially booked this holiday with a bit of trepidation given some of the less than complimentary reviews posted here. Happy to say none of the issues raised by the harder to please eventuated.

I first visited Plantation Island in 1982 as a 6 year old and many times over the years after that. I hadn’t visited for several years and returned, it had changed but it was still the same place, perhaps a little tired looking, this was a few years back and since then I have returned 4 times, the most recently...

This was our first visit to Plantation Island. We were a little sceptical of visiting after reading such a mixture of both positive & negative reviews. How ever we had a wonderful experience.
