I love the different activities that Plantation Bay has to offer. For young adults and adults we have --- kayak, stand up paddle, archery, mini golf, firing range, rock wall, etc. For young kids, we have shallow waters for them to play at. The resort already considers 5 feet as deep water and they have appropriate signages too! Lifeguards are... More

For a resort to last this long, that is already a feat in itself...for such resort to continue having high rating what with so many resorts that have sprouted like mushrooms all over LapuLapu/Mactan...this is definitely something that you should check out. I have always put off going overnight with the family in resorts even if we live in the... More

We had our first summer vacation for 2014 here just this March. I was amazed how big the place is. The resort does not look outdated and we were lucky that they let us checked in by lunch time. (Note that their check in is at 3pm). I love beaches and prefer them over swimming pools. But my stay in... More

We stayed 4 nights at Plantation bay for the last Christmas vacation as a family of four with two kids (7 and 10), and enjoyed our stay a lot. We stayed in pool side rooms, and kids could directly jump in the water by waking up. Overall the place is nicely set up, with colonial style buildings bordering numerous lagoon... More

FIRST IMPRESSION: I was amaze of the scale and beauty of their artificial lagoons. They have two larger-than-life lagoons with a white sand island in the middle. It would be hard not to be amaze with those and add the countless of smaller lagoons and pool then a one day exploration will never be enough to cover those. However, they... More

Dear BisdakExplorer, Thank you for specifically mentioning that you found Plantation Bay spotless and its staff friendly and prompt. The architectural style of the resort is “plantation”, with decorative motifs borrowed from the US Deep South, Caribbean, and Filipino plantations. The result is a very pleasing, relaxed ambience that appeals equally to couples, families with children (especially 3 and 4-generation... More

I had a great stay in Plantation Bay. Lots of activities in the resort, nice beach and pool. My only complain would be that they do not include breakfast in the hotel price so you have to pay it separately. overall it was a nice and relaxing stay

Plantation Bay in Cebu made my first time visit there with family very memorable. The place is like a small subdivision with pools and beaches, spa, and packed with so many recreational facilities that you'd hardly know where to start. First thing one will notice is the remarkable customer service. They have a "no tipping" policy since we were told... More

This resort is fantastic, small enough to walk the whole place on foot & big enough to house all the accommodations & facilities. The lagoon is well maintained and beautiful, enjoyed the activities available in the lagoon.
