“An amazing location on Seven Mile Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This was paradise in paradise. Exceptionallly clean units and well maintained. 3 bedroom unit with ocean view for our family of 5 was more than big enough. The staff were fabulous, very friendly. The beach was very quiet so no worries about if you would get a spot. Close to grocery store, liquor store and restaurants. This will not be our last visit to this wonderful place

Plantana was wonderful - very clean, with comfortable furniture and a well equipped kitchen. There is maid service every day except Sunday and a washer and dryer in every unit. The condos are a short walk from several restaurants including Yoshi Sushi, Eats Cafe, Legends Bar & Grill and the Sunshine Grill. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with a pool - we did not use it but other guests seemed to be enjoying it. Pool toys, lounge chairs and towels are provided. We chose Plantana because we heard it was on the best stretch of beach and were not disappointed. The sand is soft; other locations can be rocky. There are several good snorkeling spots within walking distance and the beach is very private (unlike the crowded, noisy stretches at the Ritz and Westin). Our only disappointment was that the neighbors' smoking prevented us from enjoying the screened porch; we were glad that we didn't pay for an ocean view. Other than that, we highly recommend Plantana and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The pictures on the website were accurate. If cigarette smoke bothers you, bear in mind that rooms...

Tank you for taking the time to share your experience at Plantana with other but I'm so sorry to hear of your smoking neighbor. I do wish you would have told us in the office as smoking is permitted on the patio but ONLY if not a disturbance to others, neighbors included! We truly have wonderful guests and find that our guests are very considerate of others for the most part but I'm always prepared to discuss the situation with the offending smoker and find a happy solution for all. We truly want our guests to be comfortable in every way and no matter how minor a discomfort may be, we will resolve it. Your vacation should be perfect and it's important to us.

In April I went down to Grand Cayman for a sorority sister's wedding where we all stayed at the Plantana Condominiums. It was a great location and size for the large group at the destination wedding.
Our two bedroom condo was very nice and we were pleased by all amenities. There were not many others at the estate, which made it nice to have to ourselves. I would recommend for a non resort style beach vacation.

We just returned from a 6 night vacation at Plantana. (May 24-30, 2013).

I tried to summarize our stay at Plantana in a single word and failed.
The words that I kept coming up with are: Peaceful, Calm, Quiet, Luxury, Relaxation, Ahhh.

Our well-traveled family been all over the US and Caribbean on vacations and every one of us agreed that our stay at Plantana was the most memorable and best vacation stay ever anywhere! That is very high praise from our picky group.

We arrived at a quarter past 3 on a Friday afternoon having just departed a cruise ship In Miami and then flying to Grand Cayman. Customs was a breeze, grabbed our luggage and rolled over to Marshalls where we picked up our rental van for the week.

When we arrived at Plantana I parked near the office. As I picked up the red phone outside the management office which had closed at 4, Janine popped out and said she heard me open the phone case. She brought me in to the office where she quickly went over a few details, handed me the key to our unit and off I went. This was typical of all our interactions with the staff. Quick, efficient and complete.

We rented unit #4 which is a ground floor unit next to the parking lot and close to the manager’s office. I was nervous when I booked that the proximity of the unit to the parking lot would be an issue. It never was. In fact, we found it to be a plus as our rental van was parked right there and we were easily a few steps away to our next trip at all times. Noise was never an issue.

The view from our unit was directly out on the courtyard, pool and then the ocean in the distance. We could easily see it from the pool or ocean which added comfort when we were all outdoors.

Our unit was nicely decorated, recently updated and painted and well appointed. Very clean. We found everything we needed to be able to cook, BBQ, clean and live comfortably in the space. The daily maid service (except for Sunday) made quick work tidying up after us and replacing bathroom and kitchen towels and changing bedding periodically.

The Wi-Fi satisfied the kid’s technology needs and the list of satellite channels available on the flat screen TVs in both bedrooms and the living room were long and better than we hoped to find.

The second bathroom also housed a full size washer and dryer which thrilled my wife as we were able to wash all our dirties from the cruise and the stay at Plantana and we arrived home after our trip with no laundry to do! Get the all in one washer/dryer laundry sheets that are available as they travel well and work great.

The grounds were very well maintained. Clean, manicured. There was maintenance going on during the weekdays as the lawns were cut, vegetation trimmed, building touched up. We did not see anything that we would have suggested that maintenance was required. The pool was in great shape, the deck furniture clean and tidy.

There were ample chairs, tables and umbrellas for the beach and pool. There was a bin near the pool that was full of pool and ocean toys that could use. Weber grills were positioned in areas around the grounds for the guests use. These were kept clean by the maintenance crew. Just head to Fosters, buy some match lite charcoal and you were ready to go.

Plantana is very well located for access to groceries, booze, shops etc. We assumed that we would be dining out every night and making quick meals for breakfast and lunch. We ended up dining out only once. We got Chicken Chicken one night for dinner and pizza one day for lunch. Otherwise it was just like being at home and we cooked for ourselves and that was just fine. (Saved $$$$ !)

Plantana and Seven Mile Beach were very quiet all 6 days. The only real excitement was a tremendous fireworks show that occurred offshore from a barge on Saturday in celebration of a wedding. Someone spent a ton of $$$.

Plantana is clearly a family friendly environment and based upon conversations and observations of the families that were present by the pool and beach when we were, they LOVE Plantana and come back regularly. I now understand why.

We had a few maintenance issues with our unit that were promptly repaired. A latch on a sliding door broke 1 morning and the maids notified the maintenance dept. and he was fixing it around lunch. On our last day a brief power outage occurred for the area and when power came back on we had no hot water. I went to the red phone outside the office to call the manager that was on duty after hours and within the hour a maintenance man was there replacing the tankless hot water system that had mysteriously failed.

One thing I cannot stand is poorly functioning air conditioning. That WAS NOT an issue for our unit. It worked well and the ceiling fans in all the rooms worked quietly to keep the air moving. As usual, my wife and I battled over the temp settings…..

Our daughter required medical attention for a skin infection that she picked up on our cruise so I headed over to the office. Janine had a couple of clinics and locations to suggest but she also had a card from a local Dr that would come to you at Plantana. We chose that option and it saved a lot of time as he arrive within 15 minutes, wrote out some prescriptions and then I was off to Fosters which also had a pharmacy.

It is difficult to describe the Plantana experience with words. It was a tremendous experience for our family.

Would I recommend a stay at Plantana? 110% yes. I know we hope to return.

Room Tip: Ground floor is worth it. Quick access and no stairs.

It's hard to know were to start. It's just awesome. The people who work here are friendly and seem to genuinely care about what they do. The unit is i
On the best part of 7 mile beach. They have beach towels, chairs, lounge chairs, umbrellas, and some natural shade. There is a pool with chairs as well. The grounds keeper rakes the beach every morning. The view is spectacular. There is plenty of beach and great depth of sand from grass to water.
We rented a one bedroom on the third floor. There are no elevators. The unit is quite large. The pictures were accurate but it's bigger than it looks. It was very tastefully decorated. Tv with satellite and DVD/hvs player. A tv in the bedroom too. It does hoe wireless Internet which is great, but it is very slow. There are really no other emenities here. No bar, restaurant or anything like that. We rented a car so we could get around. You could walk to a few places, but I think a car will enhance your trip. (p.s. do NOT use Andy's we did last time and it was a BAD idea)
We are so impressed that we have already booked for next year. This is our fourth trip to the island and he first time we will be coming to the same place. I gave a five star for value. It's true because versus other properties this is the best, however, it is difficult for me to say $360-$640 a night is a value. :-) It is worth it!
Get here as soon as possible. Snorkel or lay on the beach!

This was our first trip and definitely will not be our last. We stayed in #8 (ground floor facing ocean). Nicely decorated, very clean, and certainly comfortable for two adults and two teenage girls. Easy access to almost everything we needed. Staff is very friendly and most helpful. The sunset cannot be beat - absolutely BEAUTIFUL every night we were there. Can't wait to return for another great stay.

We stayed at Plantana for 5 nights in May 2013. It was our first visit, unit #25 on the second floor. The condo was clean, updated and fully equipped with everything we needed. In walking distance of Tortuga liquors, Cost U Less, Sunshine Grill (outstanding food), the Ritz and various beach vendors renting snorkeling gear and watersport activities. The pool was older, but very clean. The beach was very private - far removed from all the tourists. The sand was very nice white sand with no rocks or shells. The water is very calm, almost like on a lake. The balcony was superb - it is screened to keep the bugs out, but still a great view of the water and sunsets. Will definitly be coming back!
