We have stayed here several times, and in various condos over the years, and always find the Plantation among the best on the island, along with Sea Pines. Well maintained for sure, and lots of variety as regards rental units. Sure anyone who visits would enjoy it too!

Great find for the price. Excellent location; can walk to the beach. Units are small but have everything you need. Needs updating, but for the price, it is a gem.

Love the grounds - the landscaping is gorgeous. The Causeway is so lovely, as are the golf courses. The proximity to the beach is awesome, and LOVE that the beach is so clean. There are many, many accommodation options, from hotel to rental units/condos. The layout of the Plantation is lovely. Feels very private, even though many places to stay... More

It was reasonably priced the atmosphere was fun, and the course was appropriately challenging and creative. I would like to see more made of hole in one's for kids. Plenty of parking. Several courses to play and no waiting. Lots of shaded areas when it's hot. Good for both seniors and kids.

This plantation was a nice, quiet place to relax, though the security seemed a bit much. The beach is wonderful with shallow waters and smooth sand.
