Reading the past reviews of Plantation Bay, it seems like there are only two schools of thought on the place: really bad or really good. This is my third visit to the place and I have yet to experience a horror story as some others have. My experiences were generally positive. Let’s put one thing to rest . . .... More

Plantation Bay is a whimsical resort. It makes me, the guest think of the bygone days of the Caribbean islands, when the living was easy, where sugarcane, rum, music and the tropical heat of the sun dominate the days. We stayed at one of the best rooms, right above the water, and yes, we could swim from our balcony into... More

Resort was nicely built. But the staff are not helpful and acoomodating. The price for this resort is not worth the service that they are giving. There is no shuttle service for theguest if you want to go to city center, guest needs to take a cab and pay 200 pounds or shal i say 2200 pesos for the cab.... More

When you first get to the property, it doesn't look great from the road, but once you reach the resort, it looks exactly like the pictures. The staff are friendly and all speak perfect english. You can lounge around in the man-made saltwater &... More

We were looking forward to a well earned break and chose to stay at Plantation Bay as it looked exactly what we needed to relax for a week.. After an epic problem at Manilla airport - Qantas apparently no longer deal with CebuPacific Airlines and they wouldn't accept our confirmed Qantas tickets. We had to re purchase the tickets AND...

It is the second time we went to Plantation Bay in Mactan Island. It is a great place to relax with young kids (ours are 3 and 5): the lagoon and the pools are great to swim in - our kids love the 2 slides, the water everywhere, the small beach... and the colourfull small shuttle trucks that go around...
