We just returned from 7 days at La Plantation. While not a 5 star hotel, we enjoyed the ambience of this location. When we arrived, our bags were put on a large golf cart and we were taken to our duplex villa located just above the reception area. The staff could not have been more helpful or accomodating. We had a view of the ocean from our large porch where we enjoyed a cold drink every afternoon. We stayed in #871. The king bed was very comfortable; we had a choice of air conditioning or ceiling fan or both. We didn't do any cooking but the small refrigerator was adequate. We enjoyed having a card with our name, hotel, and room number where we could use it to charge meals at several beach restaurants and also it provided us with free beach lounges and umbrellas as well.
The free breakfasts were very good, although the same every day. Juice, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, ham, cereal, bread baskets with croissants, coffee, tea or cocoa.
Internet access was available in the lobby area as well as around the pool; no problem.
Even though the beach was only a few minutes walk down a hill, we decided to rent a car. There is a rental agency right in the lobby where we were able to rent a small car very resonably.
We had a problem with the shower leaking through the bedroom wall on our 3rd night, and even though it was a Sunday, someone came and put a temporary caulking so that we didn't have to move.
I think for the money we had very good value. i would definitely request an upper level villa for the quiet and privacy.
We didn't ever eat dinner at the hotel; usually got a pizza at the Coco Beach restaurant, picked up salads and pastries at the supermarket or ate in the village, where there are numerous restaurants to choose from. On Tuesday nights, there is a taxi shuttle that will take you into Grand Case where in season there is a mardi gras type event that was interesting. We chose to eat in a goumet French restaurant where we had an excellent meal.
