We had 6 nights at Plantation Resort. The size, layout & facilities were perfect for our family of 5 (3 boys aged 5,8&11). We had a family room which was a good size, it had play station which my boys loved. It would have been nice to have milk rather than vile Cromer for tea. Bunk beds were excellent. There... More

This Resort is a magnificent resort. As soon they picked us up on their complimentary shuttle service we were greeted by someone representing the hotel. Luggage was delivered to our rooms. Gym, games room, bikes, rock climbing, tennis courts, mini putt putt, water slides and their 9 pools was all great. Including their Jet ski rental was cheaper than in... More

We went to the spa and had a massage, the spa was the best one I've been to, with various pools, waterfall and lovely atmosphere. We went diving at the reef in front of the water-sport area, rented a jetsky, used the gym... More
