Always funny reading guests comments about quality of the food & accommodation at plantation island. Seems they expect 5star value for fraction of the price. I have been to plantation island twice both with a number of other families. This last trip we also decided to visit mana island. If you are traveling as a family then plantation wins hands... More

This resort is a great place if you are on a budget. I read many many reviews on trip advisor prior to going and we were not miss guided by our travel agent. This is a 3 star resort but in a lovely location. We took 5 children aged 16, 15, 13, 13 and 11 and were there for 8... More

We just got home from Plantation Island - Fiji. What a great family holiday. My wife two kids aged 6 and 8 years and I were kept busy with numerous fun activities, such as the inflatable water park in the sea, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, village tours, and the all important kids club (to name only a few activities). Also if... More

The positivies: staff were very welcoming and LOVE children and babies. We travelled there with a 10 month and 20 month old. Lots of kids activities although only for older children. Getting out to the Barrier Reef is a must and a whole range of activities available depending on your time frame and holiday aspirations. The negatives: Where to begin?... More

We're 3 nights into our Plantation holiday and loving our stay. After reading reviews before we left home I was getting slightly concerned even though I had visited the resort years ago. I feel if your expectations are realistic and you remember this is a 3 star resort which caters for over 600 people when full, then you shouldn't be... More

We just got back from Plantation Island Resort. We've been to Fiji few times before and this by far was the worst resort where we stayed. There was a lot wrong with the accommodation: hot water in the tap was frequently yellow (the water in the resort is not safe to drink), the toilet was more stinky than a public... More

This was our first trip to Fiji, we Just returned from a 7 night stay at Plantation Island and 3 nights at Raddison Blu. After 2 nights at Plantation I was ringing my travel agent to see if we could leave and move back to Denarau Island. Unfortunately we would have been out of pocket quite a bit so chose... More

Beautiful location with beach at the door step. The rooms really need a good revamp or at least a coat of paint. The bathroom wall didn't even go up to the ceiling so we could clearly hear each other when on the toilet. The safe in our room wasn't working but thankfully was promptly fixed and no problems after that.... More
