“Second time just as perfect as the first....”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stayed August 4 through August 12, 2013. We came back here because of the awesome time we had two years prior. I have nothing bad to say. There is not one thing that I would have changed. Our unit 16 condo was more than comfortable. Living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, two bedrooms and roomy first floor patio were fabulous. Rooms were spotless, staff was friendly and attentive. The grounds were amazing. The pool was always empty and I can not even begin to brag about the beach. One word.. paradise! The two properties on either side of Plantana are always vacant during the summer so it makes Plantana's beach appear more spacious. It is like you have your own private oasis. You will never find crowds, noise and chaos at Plantana. We will be back!!

Plantana was amazing from the moment I walked through the front door. We had unit #10 which was steps from the beach on ground floor. The little bits of hospitality go a long way! Plantana has a personable touch by leaving us a canvas bag, rum cake, and plastic fish of the Caribbean card on arrival. Then we got a little note and home-made peppermint candy on departure. The housekeeping staff and front desk were outstanding. I never felt unsafe at the resort and my teenage kids were able to run about without me having to worry. The snorkeling around the area was good and we even saw a spotted Eagle Ray right out in front of the condo 2 days in a row. The condo was centrally located enough that we were within walking or easy driving distance to restaurants, shopping and the grocery store. The beach was VERY private and we were happy to never have to worry about getting a lawn chair, even in the shade. The pool was super clean too and lots of nice beach toys for the kids to play with. My daughter spent a good part of the week floating on the blow up dolphin toy! I never even blew up any of the toys that I had brought along because there was enough to keep her busy. Great hotel for families with kids of any age or couples!

We have just returned home from a week at Plantana and couldn't wait to write a review.
Loved it!!!! So quiet and peaceful and private!. Stayed in Unit #12 ground floor and it was like having out own little piece of paradise! Beach just feet away from our patio and never crowded!
The staff as pleasant and accommodating. Snorkeling right on the property! We are looking forward to going back next year!

Room Tip: Ground floor amazing for access to beach and pool

We stayed at Plantana July 13 - 20. Our unit (#10) was very nice and had everything we needed. Especially loved ground floor choice - could look at and walk straight out to beach. Worth the extra dollars.

The beach was almost private and well-maintained. Snorkeling right outside the resort was fun and frankly we enjoyed it more than some of the places we drove to see. Really my favorite part was just floating in that beautiful water.

Staff was helpful and location convenient to stores and walking distance to beach side restaurant or hotel restaurants if desired. Also short drive to outings. We had our 3 kids (9,14, 17) with us and they did not want to leave. In fact they were trying to figure out how we could move there!

One note - weather was cloudy or there would be rain at times, but would clear up quickly. I think it was worth the risk of going during off-season because of cheaper rates. The sky was beautiful too! Okay two notes - we are from the West and not used to mosquitoes. Keep that screen door closed or buy repellant cuz at night those guys bite.

Room Tip: Ground floor with ocean view rooms worth the extra money! We were in room 10 which was at the North...

I can't say enough about Plantana. We had unit 40 and loved the unit. No hotel crowds which we loved. Best location on the beach, close enough to shopping (if you want) some of the best restaurants, snorkeling, or just relaxing. We rented a car and drove around to Starfish Point and Rum Point which is beautiful. We would never go to a hotel again in the Caymans, love the fact you can actually get a chair on the beach and not be part of the crowd. The unit was clean, with housekeeping each day, which we didn't even need but was a great surprise. Staff is friendly, clean beach towels each day, and like the screened in porch to have our morning coffee in. We will be back to enjoy, July is a great time to go.

Room Tip: We were in unit 40 , third floor, one bedroom with two full baths. Great full size kitchen with eve...

Plantana is the place to go when you want to slow down and enjoy the best things in life like family, walks on sandy shores, breezes that refresh, waves that relax, views that are so beautiful they inspire and exciting snorkeling just a few steps and flipper kicks into the water. We have stayed at Plantana several times now. Each time that we return we find that everything is comforting in its familiarity, yet new and updated. We love that there are stores close by to fill our cupboards and refrigerator, and restaurants close by to enjoy when we choose not to grill or cook 'at home'. The one thing that I love about Plantana that I can compare to the neighboring hotels and condos is the wide open beach. My husband and I enjoy early morning walks and most often we notice that chairs get claimed by books and hats at the other locations, yet Plantana seems to have little of that stress to grab a chair. There is so much room at the Plantana beach that my family tosses a football or Frisbee without bothering another guest. We absolutely LOVE this piece of paradise. We actually begin to dream about returning each time we find ourselves boarding the plane home, to "reality".

Thank you for taking the time to share the many wonderful things about Plantana that you have come to love.

I personally do think that Plantana is the sweet spot along Seven Mile Beach but also our guests are absolutely the best! Friendly, considerate and, although from many different places, they are like-minded with similar values.

I'm also appreciative of our entire hospitality team, each and every staff member takes great pride in their work and in Plantana. We truly do enjoy hosting and being of service to our guests so we promise to continue having Plantana ready for your enjoyment when you come 'home' to Cayman again.

Plantana offers the best location on one of the best beaches in the world. If you're looking for a quite, private and a perfect beach front condo, book one of these units and you'll know why. All of the people that we had interacted with have been coming here year after year. The secrets are:

a. Wide area of white sand beach. Great for family and couples.
b. The complex on both sides of Plantana are non-rental units. This is a plus for Plantana especially during off-season as it provides the feel of a private beach.
c. Well maintained complex.
d. Top Notch Service. Janine was very accommodating. We have 4 kids and she allowed us for a late check-out.
e. The renters themselves are all so friendly as they are mostly repeat customers.
f. Most important of all, great value!

Thank you for sharing your personal Plantana experience and the 'secrets' that make Plantana a true treasure on Cayman's Seven Mile Beach.

Our guests are like family. We often discover that guests who were once strangers have become lifetime friends since meeting at Plantana and they coordinate their return year after year to vacation together. It's also a joy to see extended families - grandparents, grandchildren, cousins - vacation together and reconnect at Plantana. We have many guests for whom Plantana is a vacation tradition for 3 generations of the family.

We hope to see you back 'home' at Plantana again soon.
