Have had a lot of experience with this place as went 3-4 times when younger, first time back in ten years and wow the place has really turned into a dive I'll start with the positives given they are few; Beautiful beaches, good water sports facilities, relatively cheap. The negatives are numerous and overwhelming, I appreciate you get what you... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in June 2013. Boat ride out was quite long as the sea was quite rough due to bad weather, better on the way back. Construction was still going on rebuilding, but the noise wasnt too bad maybe because we were there on the weekend. Buffet breakfast was good with heaps of selection except the juice... More

Felt so apprehensive after reading the reviews but from the moment we landed in Nadi we were instantly comfortable. Arrived at Plantation to singing on the dock. Check in seemed a bit haphazard but it works. Dont be in a rush, you will get to your room! The questionairre you fill out seems a bit confusing but the staff will... More

First and foremost I would like to say this - If you are a picky traveller do NOT stay at this resort. It is not a 5 star resort so if you go with that expectation you will be disappointed. We stayed as a couple (no kids) at Plantation Island Resort for 1 week in June. Although not the fanciest... More

We stayed here from 8 August for 5 nights. We had a great time, beautiful setting gorgeous beach and our 4 year old twins made lots of friends. Unsure whether we would return however. The wonderful setting was marred by poor resort maintenance. Eg around the kids pool at least half of the loungers had protruding sharp nails and there... More

The accommodations are pretty good if you are beachfront, ocean view or maybe even pool view. However, if you are in the back or close to all the construction going on, you will have to deal with construction noise, trucks and dust from 7:30am until 5:30pm daily. Not my idea of a relaxing vacation in paradise and I don't think... More

Went for a cruise for the day, spent a few hours on the island, good water sports which are good priced and a good lunch buffet and great hospitality. Not much else to do but laze on the beach but very relaxing.

It's a lovely spot which has been completely ruined by the number of young families visiting. It seems to have rubbed off on the staff as well. Very unprofessional at times from a number of the staff who have obviously had a gutsful of screaming kids. The food on offer is very average and expensive. You have no choice: buffet... More

Good resort, clean and nice beaches. If you are gay / professional / child free and prefer to spend time with other people similar, this is not the resort for you. Within 12 hours of arrival we had already been verbally abused for being a gay couple by other customers because we were two men having dinner together. This ruined... More
