This place deserves 5 stars. The facilities are great, lots of activities to do, staff is very friendly, the man-made lagoons are nice, and the food is ok and reasonably priced. However, they have this ridiculous rule in their freshwater pool where you cannot make any loud sound since this may distract their lifeguards from actual calls for help. It... More

Went here with the whole Family. I like the paluto style in the resto. The pool and the beach is very relaxing :) kinda pricey but worth it. Enjoy all the activities and you can also go to the nearest mall to taste the lechon cebu and the pandan rice.

Dear JanaChicc, We're pleased to note that though you found our prices expensive, this was understandable because of the quality offered. Lechon (Roast Pig) is actually served at our Themed Dinner Buffet. Our Black Lechon is prepared on site, according to our own recipe, and many guests agree that Plantation Bay's whole roast pig is very good indeed. Thank you... More

Went to Plantation Bay with family. Had a great time, esp. because there are so many activities that one could engage in. The staff were extremely courteous and prompt in their service. Swimming with the whale sharks at Oslob was also well worth the travel of approx. 3 hrs. The food at the Fiji Restaurant was exceptional. Really enjoyed our... More
