Ate at the pool side restaurant on two nights. Excellent food - far better than one would expect at a small poolside restaurant. The setting is lovely, with the illuminated pool behind. The atmosphere is very relaxed and family friendly. The staff are convivial. Great...drink prices. Worth the few km out to Craiglie.More

Amazing Japanese food, so impressed. This is just what Port Douglas needs! Traditional Japanese chef with plenty of thought and care, you can taste it in the food! Great friendly service too! Thank you Hideki.

I have always loved to visit The Plantation Resort Cafe /Bar as everyone has always been so friendly and i especially love The entertainment on Sundays and now even more with the family orientated open mic on Wednesdays.I dont think there is another place in...town that has the family feel we have been experiencing on these evenings. The kids are welcome to join in on our fun..we actually encourage them to sing and one girl in particular(12) was so nervous at first we wondered if she would sing again.. now she is a regular with her wonderful family Father Mother and two siblings and she is singing like a bird. Last week you could of heard a pin drop while she sang :) Another thing I like is that the kids can swim and enjoy themselves anytime during the evening.. I love the community feeling from The Plantation Resort.. I am really surprised when i read someone is disappointed with especially the family evenings.. I really cant understand it. I was actually trying to move into a unit but there is a policy of no trailers but its ok I will stay where i am. I would never move into anywhere that i did not like as i am very clean and cleanliness is important to me.But if i could have i would not of had a problem in a second moving into The Plantation Resort.I have many friends that live there and they are more then happy.Like i mention its always been one of my favorite places ..Cheers RickMore

I attended the open mic night hosted by the Plantation Resort and bar and it was a fantastic night of entertainment! Such a friendly family atmosphere and the staff and patrons all enjoyed the evening. Has proven to be a popular venue on a Wednesday...night and Sunday for live music and bbq.More

Thank you Plantation Resort for the consistent warm welcoming family atmosphere. The vibe is family friendly and fun. As locals we are lucky enough to be able to enjoy this venue with our children and enjoy a drink and dinner together as a couple while...our children bask in the fun of the pool. This is a stand out spot for any family whether local or visiting. Probably the most friendly venue in town.. The Christmas Eve function was a stand out with free children’s craft despite the tropical rain. Hands down best spot in town for a safe fun and family friendly sociable atmosphere. Well done Plantation Team. Keep up the great work...More

Very ordinary resort rude managers no good service, annoying loud music and drunken patrons in there bar till late, doesn’t look like they have anyone cleaning their public areas as they are all so dirty. There’s even mould on the rails of the stairs. I...have nothing good to say about this placeMore

What sad, lonely individual would sit down and write a review on Christmas Eve targeting a family business they supposedly visited 4 months prior, as well as posting photos of bird poo. I don't think you had a very Merry Christmas if you spent it...More

I live locally but came here one Sunday to see the live music and enjoy the surroundings. I was actually quite surprised as I had expected it to be a bit of a lame affair. The drinks were very cheap (they even have a mid...afternoon Happy Hour). There were plenty of tables and chairs. The entertainment was good and if you wanted food, well, this is a very cheap place to eat and everything looked cooked to order. I've scored an average as it was good but I wouldn't say very good.More
