Great place for the family with kids, my boys loved it as well as me and my wife, plenty for all to do and stay busy or just sit back and relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets at night as well as the entertainment would recommend any family to visit

My family of 2 adults and 2 kids 9 and 11 stayed for a week in an island bure. Arrival was efficient and we were shown to our... More

Plantation island resort is in a beautiful region. The beaches are beautiful, as well as the snorkelling. It's situated close to Cloud 9 which is a lot of fun. It's definitely a family resort, I wouldn't recommend backpackers to stay here as there are no young people and no nightlife! They have one really nice restaurant, but for the rest... More

Well almost. Our visit to Plantation was great this year with our unit right on the beach and away from the main hub. A pity the restaurant was moved to the middle instead of on the beach. The food was fine and there was plenty of choice in the buffets. Or if you wanted you could dine in a few... More

This is our second day if our sixth trip and am already amazed with everything at Plantation Island. Staff have remembered us and treated us like their own family. We ate in a poolside room this time and ours has been refurbished and is slick and span. We could easily fit a few grand kids in here. In 348 there... More

All up we were very happy with our stay on Plantation Island and would recommend the resort to anyone but mostly to families with primary aged children. There were however many couples without children who were having a great time. There is plenty to do but if you don't want to do anything then that is fine too. I was... More

Firstly let me say that I went to Plantation with an open mind after reading reviews and comments made by friends and colleagues. As a result my expectations were far exceeded and if you enjoy outdoor activities, especially with family then you can't go too far wrong with Plantation. We travelled to Plantation Island with friends, so had 4 adults... More

Plantation island is great if your a family, but not if you are a couple!!! Screaming children constantly fill the resort making it very hard to completely relax. The rooms are very clean, and serviced everyday. The Buffet restaurant is average and very overpriced. Generally the resort is looking very tied and run down, but have heard they are slowly... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights this week, staying in a poolside room. This is such a peaceful island, even for couples with all the kids at this resort, as it is a large island with two other resorts and housing on it so there is a lot to explore. A lot of private boats are moored... More

We have just returned from Plantation Island as a family getaway. We all stayed in the beach bure's, which we found clean and comfortable as we had 6 in each bure. My four year old loved the kids club and all of the activities it had to offer. My older to children (10 and 12 years) loved the freedom of... More
