                  What a super hotel, so wonderful could stay here for ever. Wonderful setting and great restaurants and service was excellent. We enjoyed to relax as well as doing some boarding and yoga. This is the place to stay in Mactan.

                  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.

                  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.

                  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...

                  Great value in hotel but far from everything else”

                  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. :)

                  Best resort”

                  Lagoon, space, staff

                  Our 1 night stay wasnt enough. Love the ambience and the saltwater pools. Staff are all courteous except for the front desk lady who checked us in. Her manner of talking isnt nice, she sounded rude. The rest was perfect for us. Will come back next time and stay longer.

                  bicycling around the resort, salt water lagoon, margarita at alien abduction

                  we only stayed for 1 night, we arrived there early in the evening and my companions were to depart to davao early morning after. so we only have a limited time there. but we enjoyed it there so much. we wish to go back and bring along my nephews and siblings. the best things there to do are bicycling around the resort, swimming on the salt water lagoon and try the margarita at alien abduction!

                  Friendly and efficient staff, great food and facilities, enjoyed the themed dinner: Viva Espana!

                  We are a group of volunteers from Nagoya Japan sharing our experiences on Disaster Preparedness and Jspanese Culture to kids in adults for two weeks. After that hectic sked we had a great time relaxing and bonding together at the soothing lagoon and beach. Food, facilities and entertainment great! Friendly and efficient staff, too. Thank you!

                  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.

                  Plantation bay is not what it was used to be”

                  The best 3 things are the staff, the amenities, the service.

                  It was our second time at plantation bay, the first time was in 2008 and it was very very nice. But now the pool water was not that clean, they didn't upgrade their pool amenities. The room was not that cozy anymore. But the staff was very friendly and accomodating. We were ai excited to eat at Fuji Restaurant but it was close. We ate at Kilimanjaro the food was so so. I suggest that they should upgrade their pool amenities.

                  Unbelievably great staff”

                  Staff. Pool. Activities

                  Firstly the not so good. Location is a bit of a issue due to the traffic. A 20km trip is easily going to take a couple of hours. The resort is looking a little tired and could benefit from some work. But all this can be forgive my the unbelievable staff, nothing was too much, always willing to help. I personally had a major issue as I forgot to pick up a bag with, passports, money, computers, cameras inside. I had already driven through a very busy city centre to get get a ferry to our next location. The manager set 4 of his staff to meet me half way to hand back my bag to ensure I didn't miss my ferry. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!
