We stayed for a weekend when we went on the Manatee tour, the hotel is very well kept and has a colonial feel to it, it's large but the room we had overlooked the river and had lovely views of the houses and river banks, very reasonably priced and staff were friendly and helpful, took an opportunity to play golf...

This resort is from out of the casablanca era and has a very nice relaxing, classy and nostalgic feel to it. The resort is very large and spread out which makes it feel a place of its own. Lots of activities to do while staying here. The restaurant West 82 Bar & Grill is also a great place to eat.... More

We stopped at the Plantation for a drink, and decided to abandon our free room to stay here. Scalloping trips and kayak rentals are both available at the resort, as well as golf and a very nice pool area. Our room also overlooked what appeared to be a croquet court! We didn't have a chance to eat here, but the... More

Stayed for four nights and it was great. Docked my bay boat right outside my patio with no problems. Staff was very helpful changing my room to a ground floor due to amount of fishing equipment and dive equipment we had to take in each night. The only negative I have to say were the marina and resort need to... More

Harder than anticipated but really fun. Went on a guided tour with Drifter Too, Captain Jeff Maudlin. We had a 24 foot boat and went out several miles. It was like other snorkeling trips in that equipment is provided and you jump off the boat into about 7 feet of water. The difference: you have to dive for the scallops... More

Our family of 6 recently stayed and had a nice time at this hotel. It did seem like it was pushing it to call it a "resort" but it was a good experience. The rooms are older and bathrooms are very small. The front desk initially was not too nice, but they got nicer during the stay. Just kind of... More

Thank you Captain Ed for a great manatee tour! Our family had a great experience. Nice resort too. We stayed in Jr. Suite-- it was very spacious and comfortable. The "garden view" did look out on the parking lot so I was not impressed with that. I will get a "water view" next time I stay here. Nice pool area... More

My wife and I got married here 17 years ago and thought it would be a nice place to stay for a couple of nights while on our Florida holiday. We booked a "garden view" room about ten months ago. On our arrival we got a room overlooking the car park in the end block, not ideal. The room was... More
