My husband and two kids ages 6 & 7 had a wonderful stay at Plantation on Crystal River. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. We love the backdoor that leads to the river. The grounds were well maintained. We did the Swim with the Manatees tour at the hotel. The guides were great! We swam with a... More

We haven't even checked out yet and I'm excited to say to review how awesome this place is! From the room to the restaurant everything we've experienced here was amazing! The staff is all very friendly and helpful. Juan deserves a promotion. He was always so delightful to see in the morning for breakfast:) the golf course wasn't the best... More

Fulfilling our bucket list item to go scalloping we booked a two night guided scalloping package. Welcome bag free breakfasts and free cook your catch were included. And what a catch! Captain Ed helped us gather our limit of six gallons and like every staff member we encountered was knowledgeable helpful and friendly. We're definitely going again next year

The premium price is for location, location, location. We love that there they have a boat ramp, docking, and parking for out truck/trailer. The staff is great and be grounds are great. We love all the fun outdoor activities and the grounds are well kept. We rented a villa which was across the street. It's great for large families but... More

Beautiful plantation style hotel at the river and with manatees swimming just outside the door. Manatee Tour from the Ground. Nice poolarea and across the road golf course. Friendly staff. A really spot for relaxation on the middle of nature.

The rating for this hotel would have been "poor" had it not been for the great scalloping trip and the employees working in the hotel who "tried" to make things right. The first room we had was small and dirty looking. The door was within inches from a main exit/entrance to the hallway. We knew the door would be slamming... More

Been here before and was still as pretty and chilled as before. Breakfast was great and the pool bar.. But it shut at 9pm which was a shame. Wifi is intermittent by the pool which is good as encourages family chill time. The pool is large and refreshing with a couple of showers and a jacuzzi. The only problem we... More

It was our first time scalloping and we got our limit thanks to Captain Ed Menster! He was a great guide and spent time explaining and demonstrating how to find and gather the scallops. We will definitely go back every year now and book with Captain Ed.

We went for a long weekend, and we're not disappointed! The resort is clean and very well kept! Food in the dining room was delicious, and our server, Liz, was efficient and very engaging!
