Good stay

Good service
Room was clean and service aw generally good. My only comment is that the food was a little pricey for the quality and taste that they serve.

Good service, nice features but closes at 8pm

the service was great, the grounds nice
I chose this as we were coming from Hong Kong, just for a few days and we thought it would be better to stay close to the airport and just have a relaxing break, save on travelling around Cebu to another resort. First impressions were good, though they did put it in a room without a balcony ( there are some on the end of each of the houses)they moved us very quickly, the grounds are good though the pool could do with a clean, it is not quite as bad and some people say. The food is ok, but the choice is quite limited when you really have trouble going away form the resort. The Italian is particularly short on choices. The other are fine, but over priced especially the burger which is not the best I have every had! and is Hong Kong prices. The activities are quite good and we tried the snorkelling trip which was again over priced but was a nice big boat and a great little spot ( if a few too many other boats )and the rifle range which again is over priced but we did just to try that one time. My biggest problem is the lack of things to do after about 7.30, there is a bar of sorts but it is more like a multi purpose room with 4 chairs. there were no guests around and the drinks were very over priced for anywhere in the world never mind the Philippines. We found ourselves walking around the place in semi darkness looking for things to do this ended up with us back in the room with the TV on. I don't think i am exaggerating if I say there is literally nothing to do!! we tried the buffet one night for about 400hk ( 30 pounds) each and it was pretty poor to be honest. the food ran out after 25 minutes, and the choice was again poor. they did refund us half the amount which is both an admission of a problem and a nice gesture. I expected something that lasted longer than 45 minutes including dinner!! drink are not included in that fee. On the whole in the day it is actually a nice place to relax and unwind but be aware of boredom in the evening and not great food.
Nightlife Tip: spend a day or two relaxing them go somewhere with more food and things to do in the evenings. Beware of the no outside food rule. Makes it feel like a semi open prison rather than a 5 star resort. Nothing out side the gates,

Great location and helpful staff

Spacious rooms, big pools.
as always very good service and our stay was a pleasure. resort staff always helpful and smiling. good choice of restaurants inside the resort, food perfect and prices are reasonable. check in was very smouth and room spacious. my wife enjoyed the spa and older son spend most of the time on the slides and in the pools. it's a small paradise in mactan. we will be back soon.

Among the best of the best resort-hotels

lagoon side room-- 5 steps to the water...
from the moment we arrived at the cebu international airport to our last minute inside plantation bay, we were treated to superior hospitality and great service. the place is superb with great choices of restaurants and other facilities. the lagoon side room where we stayed was nicely built. we had a great fun time. we will surely be back numerous times.
Hotel Feature Tip: if you want to relax and enjoy, plantation bay is the resort-hotel for you.

Impressive resort in need of some maintenance

Huge swimming area, large and nice rooms with nice views, many activities, family friendly
this is a huge resort built around a faux beach paradise. the rooms feel like bungalows and you can even swim up to some of the ground level ones. my room was large, clean, nicely decorated and in good condition, and included a large private deck. the extent and design of the resort's swimming pools is impressive. however, everything is designed for families (including grandparents and children), so adventure seekers will not be impressed. in most places the pools are not really deep enough for swimming, but are adequate for strolling around or kayaking. the most interesting part of the pool system, "mt. kilamanjaro" (sp?) happened to be closed during my stay, unfortunately, pesumably for maintenance. speaking of which, all of the pools seem to be in some need of maintenance. paint has peeled off all over the place and some large cracks have appeared in some of the pools. the resort has a small private beach (at the actual sea), but it's not particularly attractive and not very good for swimming or wading (it's full of rocks and dead coral). there are three restaurants at the resort. i tried two of them and they were not bad. breakfast was not included in my room so i just tried a small a la cart order that was okay. overall it was an interesting stay at plantation bay resort & spa, but i would not stay there again and would only recommend it to families.

Nice beach break

Nice clean rooms, good food and beautiful surroundings
had a nice stay at plantation bay. the lagoon is amazing and the fold at the resturants is suprisingly good. the staff gives good service and there is a no tipping policy so you dont have to worrie about that. also try the spa which is wonderfull but a bit pricey. all in alla nice retreat for a couple of days but not for a longer stay, you might get bored staying there for a week.
Restaurant Tip: Try the carbonara at Palermos. Nice.

Hotel Feature Tip: get beach towel early
Cecenio E. Couples Philippines, December 26, 2011
great amenities

staff were friendly
the hotel has great amenities and friendly staff but the hotel is clearly under staff thus affecting the quality of the customer service. we were at the hotel by 1pm but was given the room at 3:30pm.and was asked to check out at 12 noon the following day. we paid a lot for this expensive hotel and they made us wait for more than two hours because the rooms are'nt cleaned yet. i feel like we were rob of the time...
