Went to Plantation Bay with family. Had a great time, esp. because there are so many activities that one could engage in. The staff were extremely courteous and prompt in their service. Swimming with the whale sharks at Oslob was also well worth the travel of approx. 3 hrs. The food at the Fiji Restaurant was exceptional. Really enjoyed our...

I read the negative reviews, read between the lines of the other reviews and came in here prepared to have some challenges and issues.

This is an incredible place to stay. Very romantic and peaceful. The room we had was fantastic! It looked like a commercial for the top stays in the world. Everyone was incredibly nice and very accommodating. They had excellent food. We went jetskiing and did not want to leave. This is a must stay.
