          DOUBLE LAGOON VIEW - ROOM ONLY
          Stayed 2 nights in March 2018
          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.

          a place more than expected.”
          I expected just a clean and nice resort. But it was not enough to call the place to be nice. It's got some different theme restaurants and many activity facilities that you cannot enjoy them all in a day. Resort has been maintained all time clean and tidy. Room also was very clean. I am planning to visit this place again with my family in near future.

          The place is great. There's so much to explore if you love the waters. Staff needs to be a bit more proactive customer service wise especially in the bar and restaurants.

          Almost perfect”
          Plantation Bay is almost perfect for families with children because it offers many activities. Unlike other resorts we’ve been to in Bohol and Cebu, Plantation Bay is truly children-friendly. It’s only down side is the cost of the food specially in Kilimanjaro. Much much more expensive compared to other resorts in Cebu. Food is not only very expensive, serving is also very little relative to the amount one is paying for, e.g. P490 for tow pieces of chicken. If this issue is addressed, we will have no second thoughts about returning. One other minor issue is the lack of system for the the hotel’s loading of passengers and bags in its airport bound shuttle.

          Stay is not inclusive of breakfast. The lagoons needs to be cleaned though since there are dirt floating around. I love that tipping is not allowed at the resort. Rooms are spacious but interior designs needs an upgrade, the stuffs inside the room looks outdated. As for the toiletries, we have to call and ask for it. We had a relaxing stay since the resort is big to roam around and has lagoons and swimming pools to choose from. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

          Epitome of Staycation Resort”
          My family and I really had a great time during our stay in Plantation Bay. Staff were FRIENDLY, ACCOMODATING and HONEST especially when it comes to tipping since we were not aware of the “NO TIPPING POLICY”. Staff were so honest to return the tip we left for them. We enjoyed the wide amenities of the resort and a-3days/2 nights-stay was not enough for us to experience all the resort has to offer therefore we will denifitely go back again. We had fun during the FREE ARCHERY tutorials and games, WALL CLIMBING & BIKING and so many other activities. It is a GOOD PLACE TO RELAX AND UNWIND because NOISE WERE MINIMIZED even the sounds during their Brazilian Night show was so minimal so that other guests will not be disturbed. Maybe one not so good area was the Alien Abduction since I expected more from its adverstisement. One of the most important thing I can recommend them is for their KINDNESS in sending me the rosary I left in our room after checking out from the hotel. KUDOS to all!

          Unfriendly staff and slimy lagoon”
          The staff were unfriendly, and extremely unhelpful, unfortunately this makes the resort feel artificial and soulless. The general inhospitality is particularly surprising as Cebu is very family oriented and an extremely welcoming place. As for the Rooms they were very basic but at least they were clean. The buffet was severely lacking, with a very small selection of mediocre dishes (a couple of pasta dishes doest make an Italian breakfast buffet !). The lagoon was dirty and slimy, since this was a major promotion point for the resort, this was another major disappointment. While I appreciate maintaining an artificial Lagoon is not easy, other resorts are able to achieve cleanliness. At least the swimming pool was relatively clean. The Resort is very picturesque, but unfortunately that doesn’t make up for the rest of its issues. The resort fails to reach the standards and expectations of being top end resort, and since it is not family friendly, its hard to recommend this resort to anyone. Avoid this resort, if you want a romantic or high end resort there are much better ones in Cebu, likewise there are numerous other family friendly resorts.

          Attention Management of Plantation Bay: Agoda team, please help me send this message to Plantation Bay Management. Worst supervisor in charge is Mr Arvin- no empathy, rude and very inconsiderate. I know he is aiming for recognition and promotion but he needs to ensure that when he implements rule, it should be carried out all across the rest of the visitors. Went to our room several times without even providing options- just straight away chargee us. Second worst is Sheila and Monique- so by the book and very inconsiderate

          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*.
