My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the end of our world wind Southern States vacation. The room was very clean and comfortable, the staff is amazing and very friendly, and on our first night here after check-in two manatees swam up to visit us right by the pool. So exciting!

Overall, very good experience. Rained most of week-end so didn't get to do much of what we'd planned but staff was very nice and golf course, what little we got to play was very nice. Rooms were nice and also quiet.

Awesome place. Really upscale looking. Rooms and grounds are really clean. Tons of activities for kids. Heated pool is great. Tiki bar is nice. Large golf course for those that play. Views are great. It's right on a set of canals. Dive shop has boats for rent, five trips and swimming with manatees.

Stayed at the Plantation to swim with the Manatees & go fishing. The Plantation Hotel is the nicest hotel around. We stayed at the golf course rooms and they were OK. I think staying in the actual hotel would have been nicer, but the golf course room was move like and apartment, so it fit our family. Golf course "apartment"...

How can you not choose to stay in a hotel where the grounds are covered in beautiful trees and landscaping vs asphalt? Most hotel rooms are the same, a bed or two, nice bathroom, tv, wifi, etc...and all of those amenities were great at this hotel. I had read a review that a customer complained of a "wet" odor at...

This is our second time coming to Crystal River.

Our car broke down in Crystal River, so we were stranded at The Plantation. Great place. Manatee shop next door was convenient, we rented kayaks (make reservation). Service at the Tiki bar was poor. Dinner there was not where i wanted to be, but since we had no car, ate in the bar. Food was fine, though pricey. Nice evening...

Loved the resort, very spacious and easy to get around. The youth activities were great and let the parents get some alone and relaxation time. Staff was really nice and helpful. Peter from Miami, FL. was very helpful. Loved that our Manatee tour left right from the hotel.

A charming hotel with lots to offer. Rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. Our family enjoyed walking the grounds, hanging at the pool and Tikki bar. The staff was super friendly. There were also croquet courts that we had fun with, just get the balls and mallets from the front desk. They even had a kids craft room set up...

Looks like an old antebellum plantation as you drive up. Check in was quick and easy. Lobby is very pretty and leads right into their restaurant which we heard is very good. Lots of free parking. Our room was very large for a hotel and very tastefully decorated. Out back they have a small canal with a fishing pier, kayaks...
