Fantastic condo/hotel. Great place to stay to get away from the typical loud and crowded hotel chains.
Clean rooms, friendly and informative staff and immaculate groundskeeping. We would definately recommend Plantana to anyone who is looking for a beautiful beach and a fantastic relaxing place to stay.
Governor's Square with the grocery store and liquor store is right down the street and the Ritz and Westin are a very short walk down the beach if you want the restaurants, spas, etc......
Great restaurants were Luca, Duke's, Sunshine Grill, and Cracked conch all great places with great food and atmosphere.
We walked the whole stretch of 7 mile beach and are so happy we chose Plantana, best spot on the whole stretch by far.
Stayed in unit 48 which is beautiful with all the comforts of home, flat screen tv's, DVD, 2 large spacious bathrooms, big kitchen with all the utensils you need. Blenders, coffee maker, even electric can opener!
Janine and Vijay (sp?) are also amazing. So informative, friendly, and so helpful; could not ask for anything else!

Stayed: August 2012, traveled as a couple

The Plantana property has one of the best locations on the 7 mile beach. We visited some of the hotels we considered staying and we were glad we chose to stay at Plantana.
The grounds are beautiful, clean and well kept. The staff is very attentive and nice.
The condo unit #4 was just right for our family of 4 (two daughters 6 and 11 years old and two adults). Even though it is considered an ocean view unit, we had a nice view of the pool and the ocean from inside of our condo and the screened in porch. Also being on the first floor overlooking the pool made going to the pool or the ocean very convenient for our kids and us.
The condo is tastefully decorated, very neat and clean,the kitchen and bathrooms appeared to be newly renovated. The screened in porch was a nice touch as well as perfect for us to have our daily meals. The barbecue grills by the ocean was also a nice amenity to have!

Room Tip: Did not rate "Fitness Center" since Plantana did not have one.

Location Location Location - 7 Mile Beach is incredible, and Plantana has the best spot on the beach. Just far enough away from the Resorts, but close enough for a quick walk to have dinner or drinks at the Ritz. Having the kitchen and screened in patios was a huge plus. We made breakfast lunch and dinner everyday and enjoyed on the patio listening to the waves crash and the birds sing. Our unit (#3) was very nice and clean, but we met the owners of #10 and when we go back, we will be requesting this incredible beach front unit. You can't beat Plantana, it is a staple for us in Cayman.

Room Tip: Unit 10 is beach Front - Unit 3 is garden setting, very secluded and on the ground floor.

I have to apologize for the delay in this review. Long overdue. Once you get back to our busy caotic schedules finding a few minutes never seems to happen. Almost on a daily basis I find myself drifting back in time to imagine myself on the screened in porch in the early morning watching my husband snorkeling right off the shore in my nitie while enjoying a cup of coffee. We stayed in Unit 6 the first week in May 2012 for 7 glorious nights. We have traveled extensively all over the Caribbean and Grand Cayman is our number 1 destination and Plantana Condo #6 is also our #1. It is a ground floor 2 bedroom 2 bath with all the amenities. Wonderfully furnished with the most comfortable bed as well as all its furnishings. The kitchen was beautiful and we came home and remodel our kitchen incorporating many of Unit 6 features. I also adored their bathroom and plan on using their bathroom as a pattern for our next remodel. This was our 1st experience with a ground floor beach front and I can' t tell you how wonderful it is to be able to run in an get something you've forgotten or a snack or cold drink without running up 1 or 2 flights of stairs. ALSO FYI, there are plenty of umbrellas for all and shade which is a high priority for us when choosing a resort/condo. We are active middleaged snorkelers and swimmers and Plantana fit all our needs. The snorkeling was great a few steps down the beach & also infront of the govenor's mansion. Food shopping is across the street and there are also restaurants and a TCBY within walking distance. We love that you are just far enough from the hussle and bussle of 7 mi beach but yet you are close enough to enjoy it all. The staff at Plantana couldn't have been more helpful. We had a slight hick up with the wifi upon arrival and Robert ran right over to take care of it instantly. Janine was amazing with acquiring our reservations from beginning to end and everything in between. They all worked hard making certain everything was just as we wanted. Tessa also checked up us often to make certain that all our needs were met. They are wonderful warm caring people who take excellent care of their travelers. Can't wait to return. Thank you for your hospitality. Until next time -- Roxanne & Danny from New York

We stayed in Unit 16 which was a garden view. Loved it since it had a lovely view of the garden with the privacy from other guest. It was close to the parking lot and road but never heard a sound of either road or cars
Our unit was great with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths & flat screen TV in each. Had larger TV in living area. The screened in porch was great to have breakfast with the beautiful view of flowers and the garden. The BBQ grills was nice to have to cook our lunch. The grills were cleaned nightly by a wonderful friendly staff. In fact everyone of the staff were friendly.
We had issue with the dryer in the unit. Once we reported it office staff took care of it right away in having it repaired.
The best part of Plantana was there private beach which we had almost all to ourselves. The gounds were immaculate and beautiful. We walked the beach each morning and decided Plantana was the best place to stay on seven mile beach. No crowds of people lined with lawn chairs at Plantana.
We ate at Eats Cafe which was almost across the street but the best suprise was the Sunshine Grill a restaurant not to be missed. A short walk from Plantana.
Plantana had a postcard perfect beach and grounds which made for a wonderful vacation.
I highly recommend Plantana over any other place on Seven Mile Beach. It's the BEST!!!
Thank You Plantana!!!

We stayed in Unit 25 of Plantana in late March 2012. The unit was on the second floor, with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. The unit has lovely décor and a perfect view of 7 Mile Beach. The bedrooms and living area were spacious and clean and the kitchen had very nice appliances with all of the amenities we needed. The unit had many home-like touches, like ice packs for picnics, books, movies and games for rainy days, etc. The only rain we had in our 5 day stay was for a few hours one afternoon and we were happy to sit on the screened in porch and relax with some snacks and wine. The TV and furniture were all modern and in excellent condition. We loved the chairs on the porch! And the screening made it a bit more private without sacrificing the view and the breeze.

The grounds were immaculate and every morning we woke up to a perfectly cleaned bbq area and beach with plenty of chairs and umbrellas and my favourite, a large hammock under a palm tree - the beach looked like a postcard! We were able to do some snorkeling right off of the beach and saw a ton of fish and coral, even a turtle! For someone who hasn’t spent much time in the ocean, it was very exciting and the calm, clear water made it easy to enjoy swimming.
We were one of the many couples staying at Plantana but most other units were families. The bbq and pool area was never too busy if you wanted to use the facilities but there were enough people around that we were able to meet some of the other guests staying there and enjoy some conversation. We spent time each day walking up and down the beach and enjoyed the tiki bar which was just a few minutes away, right on the water. It made a perfect spot to enjoy a pina colada after a swim! When along the beach, we saw quite a few other resorts, but none were as well kept or quiet as Plantana. Some were in need of repair or had a busy, noisy beach area.

There were several grocery stores, cafes and restaurants within walking distance, so the convenience of being able to easily get everything we needed gave us extra time to enjoy the beach which was just steps away from our door.

With the fantastic facilities in the unit, we usually preferred to bbq and prepare our own meals, but when we did go out, we loved the Sunshine Grill (rated #1 restaurant on Trip Advisor!) which was just across the street. We also enjoyed the Royal Palms for some outdoor dining. The staff at Plantana were so pleasant and knowledgeable. They helped us find shops and restaurants and gave us directions to our big outing of the week – the Turtle Farm! It’s a great attraction for people of all ages, make sure you visit at least once.

The value was excellent and we couldn't have made a better choice for our vacation. We will absolutely be going back to Unit 25 again and can’t wait for our next visit!

I check trip advisor before every vacation, usually looking for what to watch out for or the occasional hidden gem. I just got back from Grand Cayman and we stayed with another couple at the Plantana. I know many of the units are different, we stayed at number 44. This unit is a third floor ocean front with two bedrooms and two baths. The property was kept spotless and the unit was recently updated. Newer appliances and flat screen tvs in the bedrooms and living room. Plantana sits on a nearly perfect beach with warm clear water. The complex is within walking distance of restaurants and a grocery store as well as the Ritz and Westin hotels. Plantana had a private pool and has BBQ grills throughout the complex. Traveling with two small children I especially appreciated being able to grill outside and enjoy the great views while cooking dinners. I will definitely be back, and highly recommend looking into unit 44.
