This was the first time that we stayed at the Plantation. The room was nice and clean with a small refrigerator. The best part of the property is that there is a lot of canal front parking for your boat. It is a bit of a slow boat ride to get to the channel, so be prepared (slow and manatee... More

My friend and I arrived at the resort late in the day. Upon entering the room, we noticed that the a/c was making a very loud noise. We called the front desk and a technician arrived immediately. He said he thought that the motor would need replacement and that we could change rooms. He attempted to get us a room... More

We didn't stay here but wish we did. What we did do was book a scalloping/fishing charter out of the Plantation. The staff at the Plantation found us a captain who took us out for a day of fun. We fished with captain Aaron Shields and caught shallow water grouper and limited on scallops rather quickly. If you want a... More

This was a great place to stay and the best part was the staff. They were the most friendly and helpful group of people I have come across in a long time. It was very refreshing to see an emphasis on customer service is still alive somewhere. The wildlife was amazing and we could not have have asked for a... More

We have stayed here twice now and would reccomend it for boaters w/families. You launch your boat right there at the dive shop ($10.00 one time fee) and dock on the seawall that runs the whole length of the property. It makes loading and unloading kids and supplies easy. Also there is plenty of open space for the kids to... More

This is a old Florida type of resort. Very family friendly that focuses on boating, water sports, relaxation and golf. It is a resort so they try to provide you with everything you need on the property but it is not far from stores that can provide you what you need. There are several packages to choose from.....scalloping package, swim... More

Rather remote location but the southern atmosphere of the resort was charming. The room was spacious and may have been recently updated however the hallways and elevator could use some work. Our reason for the choice of this hotel was an adventure for two boys to swim with the manatees. The manatee outing was somewhat disappointing since in July there... More

We stayed at The Plantation on Crystal River for 2 nights. The resort looks very sprawling and southern. There was a lot of activities and lots of people around. The staff was very attentive at check in as well as the restaurants. Generally the hotel is clean but it could really use a refresher. The carpets smell and the lighting... More

The boat hire at this location is Excellent value. Helpful staff. A great afternoon out for all the family. We found this location by chance having read some of the less fav arable reviews regarding other similar hire places in the location. One of the best afternoons of our holiday.

We rented a pontoon boat yesterday for my husband (who is on a wheelchair), myself and 3 friends. The staff was wonderful in helping to get my husband down a floating (rocking) dock and onto the boat. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. When we got back it was high tide to the dock ramp was not able to be... More
