3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We site inspected the place in March for a company event in May. I guess it's your typical downfall where people in the resort didn't coordinate well with the people in Manila. Their sales office loves to address ALL the ladies as MISS, even if there are just 3 people in a meeting room. I find that to be so... More

We booked a two bedroomed villa - two children aged 10 and 14 and only stayed two nights but wished we had booked longer. The resort was well laid out with lots of activities for children and prices were very reasonable. The no tipping policy was a welcome change and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful.... More

I am posting a second review of Plantation Bay Resort. The first review was published around 25 May 2015 and was seen by hotel management. They confirmed this when I checked out on 26 May 2015. However by 27 May the review had disappeared. The hotel management approached me immediately after I checked out. They apologised several times for the... More

I'm borrowing the resort's website tagline for my title because it speaks of our experience. This is one family-friendly and activity-laden resort that’s sure to make an impression. What's new I love their newly renovated freshwater pool. It looks beautiful and modern especially at night time when the lights change colors from blue to green to pink and purple. Tip:... More

This was the perfect place to celebrate my Mom's birthday. Very private place yet spectacularly grand. My American husband loved the place and he can't wait to come back soon. Eventhough the location of our room (WI35) is not that great coz it's right where the people passes when they go to their room, still we loved our stay. Over-all... More

I preface this review by saying our first choice was the ShangiLa however, it was booked out, as was our second choice, so we decided on Plantation Bay. We knew it wouldn't be in the same league........ and yes we were absolutely spot on. The airport pick up was ok, although it wasn't a hotel car/van, instead it was a... More

We were at Plantation Bay last 15 May 2015 for a day tour. It was a needed respite from our business trip. For P2k per head, which was inclusive of lunch, you can enjoy Plantation Bay's amenities. But make sure you have prior reservations with the resort. It was my 3rd visit & I still enjoy going back. What I... More

My son and his wife treated me to this wonderful vacation. This was my first time to this part of the world and it was amazing. The facility was impeccably clean, reasonable, the service was exceptional and the employees seemed to love their job. A smile and a "Morning", "Afternoon", Evening" all the time. The beach area was lovely and... More

If you're looking for total relaxation without additional fee from the resort, chill out at Savannah. The water was very cold and wasn't salty. The food from Savannah was also very delicious and worth the price. This is the undiscovered part of the resort. Definitely going back.

The facilities are great at this hotel, and the amount of activities you can do there are plentiful whether you are a couple of if you bring kids here. The rooms are very large with a large bathroom and the room decor fits in the theme of the hotel. The rooms were clean and the view overlooking the lagoon from... More
