We are here now for the week and we are really disappointed with this property. We used RCI points to exchange into this RCI "Gold Crown" resort, and in my opinion this place is far from being Gold Crown. We are in the Presidential Villas and although they are clean they are sorely in need of refurbishment. The decor is... More

Used RCI points for a long October weekend in Myrtle Beach area with family (kids ages 7 and 8). To benchmark, I would expect an RCI Gold Crown resort to be comparable with a Walt Disney World resort. If the Grand Floridian is a 5-star resort, Boardwalk/Beach Club a 4-star, Port Orleans/Coronado Springs a 3-star, then Presidential Villas/Plantation Resort is... More

Rooms to far away from anything. Pools and beach. Staff doesn't accommodate to any of your needs. Security expects small children to be quiet and not run around in rooms. Not a place of relaxation. Have to do your own cleaning and laundry. Beach towels cost $5 for extra or exchanging. No continental breakfast. Recreational area has only a few... More

We recently stayed at the Plantation Resort for our honeymoon. It was a gift so right off the bat I am not complaining about the stay, however, if given the option, we would have done it differently. We were booked in a hotel room at the resort. Would never recommend the hotel room. It is set up in a way... More

We enjoyed our vacation at the Plantation Resort. We had to leave three days early because of the hurricane so were sad about that. They were very nice when checking in and out. Very helpful with directions. We enjoyed the breakfast in the morning each day. Mary in reservations was so helpful. All three times I spoke to her she... More

Not sure the actual price of these, we stayed in the timeshare presidential villas, top floor 2 bed, 2 bath. We got it for $100 a night from a friend, i don't know if I would pay more than this price, I felt like $100 was fair for what I received. With that said, arrived early, they got me checked... More

We vacationed with our 2yo and infant for 5 days. We read many reviews and decided we would take our chances with this resort. The check-in process was very smooth. They do not provide cribs so this was the first problem. Upon arriving to our room, the dishes were dirty, the tub was dirty, there were many stains on the... More

I came to this resort expecting the worst with all the negative reviews I've read but once there I was truly pleasantly suprised. This resort was a great place to stay. Units were clean and spacious. The location was good if you dont want to stay on the beach. 5 minute trip up to Ocean blvd with July traffic. Staff... More

This place was ok to stay at. The accommodations were fine but not great. It seems better suited for a family stay rather than a couples stay which is what my trip was. I wish they had another pool area since the ones they had were always very crowded. I also wish it had been closer to the beach( it's... More
