We had a double room, it was large and clean. A room complaint; we didn't have any places to hang wet bathing suits. There were insufficient towel racks in the bathroom even for the towels. The bathroom shower did not have a light in it making it very dark. The golf course was nice, and the golf prices very reasonable.... More

We had the scalloping package two-night stay. The package included breakfast for both days, scalloping for half a day, and dinner. The hotel was nicely updated and the rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was very accommodating. Captain Ed took us out scalloping and was very helpful and patient since this was our first scallop hunt. The chef at... More

great place to stay and play as you enjoy all there is to do in the crystal river area. the golf course was good, the executive has 15 inch cups, not as easy as they sound. great food all around, the pool, dive shop, lounge all nice.

Friendly, patient, and professional are the words that come to mind to describe the staff at the Plantation. The restaurant had a good ambiance without being over the top in trying to create it. The food was tasty, abundant, and presented in a pleasing manner. As for the golf I found the course in fairly good shape but not outstanding.... More

My husband went on a scalloping trip so we stayed for the weekend at this hotel. They are dog friendly so this was a plus for us. We stayed in the building connected to the main hotel which is the "dog building". It was also very convenient to the pool, restaurant and bar. It is an older hotel so one... More

I had a delightful 2-days experience with my grandson at this resort in the Orchid wing. The room was large and bathroom more than ample for us. I was some what apprehensive of this place from some of the negative comments written on this site by visitors; however, I encountered no mildew/moldy smells in room 158. Food quality met with...

It's very impressive as you drive in;the grounds are so wonderful, and of course the facia of the building looks like a plantation home. My friend and I were taking a girls trip and upon arrival immediately agreed we both adored the presentation! Check in just confirmed that they did specialize in southern hospitality. Grecia was the young woman who... More

We picked this hotel for a long weekend getaway for our 39th anniversary.....a 2 hour drive from Orlando. We booked the scallop outing and a manatee outing, combining the two packages for 3 nights. The hotel is nice, well maintained and the staff was attentive. We had issues with Wifi connectivity the last day and a half. The scalloping trip... More

Gorgeous location, hotel was in good condition and totally updated. The setting, surrounding activities and attractions are what make this place excellent. Tiki Bar bartenders were awesome & they had a great selection of beach bar food. Pool area was super clean, and big. The pool was a little heavy on bugs but it's on the river so a few... More

Great location, great pool and bar, awesome place for families, and good customer service. I wanted to love this place. But it has a fatal flaw - I believe the interior is made of wood frame, so you can hear everything that is going on in nearby rooms. I was woken up at 6 am by the constant footstep thuds... More
