Our family stayed a week at Plantana and loved it! We rented an 3rd floor, oceanfront penthouse unit. The penthouse unit had an outdoor deck as well as a screened-in porch (both have dining tables on them). It was convenient to have the deck for outdoor dining and it was also handy to store our snorkeling gear. There's also a grill (and a garden hose, to rinse things off) on the deck, which was great to have. There was a nice mix of families and couples here.
Plantana is an older property and is in great shape. The landscaping is beautiful. The kitchen in our unit looks like it was upgraded (countertop is granite) and all the appliances were stainless steel. The bathrooms look like they've been upgraded too. Some things that didn't seem upgraded were some of the furniture and the kitchen cupboards/bathroom vanity. The beds seemed new - firm, level mattresses. Everything was very clean.
The beach at Plantana is perfect... quiet, wide beach, sandy entry, plenty of space between people/chairs, shaded by umbrellas and trees. Didn't need to run out first thing in the morning to save a spot! It's a perfect combination of a quiet location, with great proximity to the restaurants and activities on Seven Mile Beach. Red Sail Sports is located at the Westin for beach rentals of Hobie Cats, etc. If you didn't feel like making your own drinks, you could easily take a beach walk down to the Ritz or Westin or to Calico Jack's beach bar to get one.
Overall, we enjoyed Plantana. It was less expensive for us to stay here than at one of the newer, more central condos down the beach. The cost savings meant more beach activities like parasailing and jet skis. Our family would stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Plantana is on the finest section of Grand Cayman's renowned Seven Mile Beach. Pristine white sand creates a wide and extensive beachfront and then extends right out into the ocean to form a lovely, rippled floor. Our area of low-rise, low-density properties presents you with that rare phenomenon: plenty of beach and swimming space to call your own. Plantana's mature plantings - colorful blooming shrubs, lofty arching palms and expansive lawns - graciously wrap our plantation style architecture to offer beauty, pleasure and tranquility that is now almost impossible to find elsewhere. Make your vacation home here at Plantana in a one, two or three bedroom condo. You'll agree: Plantana is beyond compare! ... more less
