This place is the most amazing hidden gem on the nature coast. It has everything you need for fun and relaxation and the staff is so friendly and helpful. The property is clean and well maintained, classic in every way. I have been here several times and wouldn’t go anywhere else in this area.

A friend and I stayed with my two dogs 2/19-2/21/21 and had a fantastic time. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The room was large and the beds were comfy. We had a great time at the tiki bar on Saturday evening, the three bartenders were very nice ladies and we enjoyed the atmosphere. We also did a manatee tour - the captain, Laura, and the guide, Dustin, were warm and funny, swimming with the manatees is definitely a bucket list to-do! The only downside was not having longer to stay! We will certainly be back and will recommend to our friends and family

Room smelled musty and damp. Put out a request, the 2nd morning, for fresh towels and toiletries, as they room is not cleaned until after 3 days (:(), Request was taken off of the door and nothing was done. I went to the linen closet, dropped off the damp towels, and replaced them myself. Shower leaked, some light bulbs were totally out, and there was a loud sounding fan on all of the time. For all of the additional taxes and fees, have an upgraded room, but not having any type of bed service is not acceptable. Also, the kitchen on Saturday was not equipped to handle the crowd out by the pool or inside. People were waiting a long time and then stopped taking any orders. We had to go to Publix. Finally, people in our group of 14, were charged double. Poorly run hotel, would not recommend.

We held our organization's two day leader orientation and business meeting here after vetting several other places. What a great choice!! From the planning to the execution, Laurie and her staff made sure everything was seamless and tailored to our needs. We had meeting space that accommodated 40 people safely, great menu choices and the food was good. They helped us surprise our attendees with a special showing of "In Case of Emergency" poolside after a buffet dinner preceded by appetizers, all al fresco. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Those attending took advantage of the special rates we had negotiated and quite a few added days to their stays so they could take advantage of the outdoor amenities offered. Several went on kayaking trips and raved about the experience. We were especially appreciative of Laurie understanding our concerns regarding social distancing. You see, we were all emergency nurses. All had been fully vaccinated and at least one third have had Covid this past year. We REALLY needed a place that would allow us to relax and practice self-care after the year we have had. Plantation provided that. I would be remiss to not recognize Anthony, Ron, and Nathan who work as hard as we do to make sure guests have a great experience.

Very peaceful here. Loved the location. My wife wasn't happy with the room, which is probably due for an update. But it's a very beautiful place with southern charm. The restaurant is very good. Breakfast is usually a great assortment of eggs, several sausages, potatoes, pastries and fruit. A nice buffet. We also did lunch. It is fantastic and our party had 4 different meals. All were large in portion and worth the price. Take a stroll by the pool and enjoy the Crystal River. So relaxing.
