          Everything you need all in one place!”
          Plantation Bay is one of our favorite short getaways! The lagoon right outside the room makes quite a difference in the experience so the "Lagoon Side" upgrade was well worth it! We loved going outside the room and immediately having access to the beautiful lagoon! At night, the live jazz music resonated around the resort. The staff were amazing and the food was great! Will definitely stay again!

          A good place to relax”
          Plantation bay is one of our favorite places to stay for relaxation. The huge man-made lagoon never gets crowded despite the large number of guests. There are always plenty of activities to keep children entertained. However, we were disappointed with the food from all their 3 restaurants we ate at. The taste of their food was bland, unsatisfying and not worth the price. We have always enjoyed the food at FIJI, but the quality of their dishes seems to have deteriorated.

          Poor beach but nice artificial lagoon”
          As everywhere on Mactan island forget about a decent beach. In this hotel the solution to this problem is a large artificial lagoon. The restaurants in the resort are average in quality but high in the price. For a rather limited breakfast buffet they charge almost 20 USD. The architecture of the buildings - each a bit different - is very good (colonial style). The rooms are also nice, most of them with direct access to either the lagoon or one of the several swimming pools. Good for tourists that like to spend their entire holiday inside a resort. Outside the resort there is not much to discover. A 15 minute tricycle drive brings you to the overcrowded and traffic-stricken Lapu-Lapu town. The adventurous tourist may find a primitive place to eat a roasted chicken or some other basic food. But most will probably rather quickly return to the resort. Of course, this applies not only to the plantation bay but all similar hotels along the Mactan shore.

          I got a good deal from Agoda. Paid 147USD for 3 nights. Although the hotel is 20yrs old, everything is clean. Staff are courteous and accommodating. Facilities are great. We do not have the time to enjoy all since we lack time. Location is okay except going to the resort -- it's traffic. Overall experience is excellent. Thanks for the gift voucher for your daily raffle. I was hoping it's a Spa voucher *wink*.

          Expected too much from Plantation Bay but personally did not enjoy swimming the pool. My only consolation was that my little son enjoyed the place sooo much that he still keeps mentioning going back to Cebu in order to stay in Plantation Bay again. I might or not at all come back but who knows!!! :)

          This is probably one of the best hotels that I have stayed at. The concept was very good. And especially the staffs, all that I encountered were polite, courteous and well oriented. Our room, Lagoon Side, was very nice, with a very comfy bed Had dinner at one of their restaurants, FIJI, and the food was really good, aside from the excellent service. Highly recommended.

          The entrance is not so impressive that I felt I had been let down by all the positive reviews. The staff throughout were exeptional. The room we were in was beside the lagoon near the entrance. It may have been in one of the older buildings because the furniture needed updating and the beds were sagging. The room was spacious though and bathroom clean. Food was good. This is a good resort especially for families. There are various activities to do. There is a cart one can ride around the plantation. My kids have been on different water slides, but after they went down the fast slide they said they were done for the day. They did say however that they would still choose to take the water slide again in the future. Great resort wonderful staff throughout the resort even with the no-tipping policy. But my personal preference would be a resort that has a more natural surrounding.

          Had waited more than 2 hours to be checked in after a very long flight from abroad and had to argue for it as we were so tired of waiting & just wanted to be relaxed and hoped to enjoy the day as soon as we arrived in the resort. Hope the management could be more considerate to check in guests when there's a room already available and don't be too regimented of the 3pm check in time. Other than that, thanks to the rest of the friendly staff...

          Everything inside the hotel is great! The staff are friendly, the rooms have great view (we got the lagoon view), and the saltwater pool is very nice. There's just one problem inside the hotel. The dressing room chair in our room was full of bed bugs! I sat there for 10 minutes and my back and arm was itching so much. Other than that, everything is great! The location of the resort though might be an issue for some because there's nothing outside the resort. You have to ride a car to go to the nearest mall if you don't want to eat in the resort 3x a day.

          The best 5 star experience I ever had”
          >> Before travelling, I have requested for a mobile wheelchair since I recently had a hip surgery. When we arrive for check-in, the mobile wheelchair was readily available for my use. >> The staff - are very polite and they would always smile and greet the visitors. >> Accessibility - their carts are readily available anytime and anywhere, whenever and wherever you need to go to 1 place to another. I love it! :) >> Food - Kilimanjaro has the best kare-kare I ever tasted! and the sinigang is also excellent! I love this restaurant. >> The tour - we availed for the Oslob whale shark watching from the resort. It was great since only our group went. Everything was well arranged and had nothing to worry about. They even prepared and arranged our sumptuous BBQ lunch. We had grilled fish, prawns and bbq pork with papaya salad and free flowing drinks. it was absolutely amazing. Overall, it was the best experience my family ever had. Certainly 5 star experience. I will absolutely stay in this resort again. :)

          A very relaxing and pleasant vacation”
          1) customer service 2) huge swimming lagoon and sprawling first class facilities 3) cleanliness
          It was very relaxing. Despite the huge number of guests, the large expanse and design of the resort enabled our family to have adequate space for quiet fun and privacy. We love the design of the accommodation and the lagoon and pools. Rooms were wonderful, spacious and with verandah. Food was delicious with enough variety to choose from. Customer service was excellent. The only downside is we had a long wait time during check-in. Despite booking and paying three weeks in advance for 3 rooms, the resort only alloted us rooms at the last minute. We arrived at 11:00 a.m. and only got our rooms at 4 p.m.. After 3 p.m. we were told they cannot guarantee us what time they will have rooms available. It was only after we made a complaint to the manager that they started taking action to find us clean rooms. In the end, we got three rooms, although they were in three different buildings. To their credit, the manager gave us free pass for use of spa facilities.
