We headed to Cebu because we wanted a quick getaway from Hong Kong. It had to have a few things: a chance to scuba dive, spa treatments and plenty to keep a 4 year old amused. We could not have been happier with our choice. The staff were lovely. By the end of the week all of them knew our... More

Nice for a quick weekend getaway. They have lots of activities to offer like firing, biking, or kayaking. They don't have the nicest beach but surely you will enjoy their lagoons. There are so many lagoons to choose from even their restaurants have lagoons you can swim right after you eat if you want to. The rooms are very nice... More

People like different things for vacations. Plantation Bay seems to have it all: lots of activities and food choices for families, space and peace and tranquility for older folks. We fall in the latter category. Plantation Bay is the place to which we regularly go to de-stress from our hectic teaching jobs in Metro Manila. We love the peace and... More
