The new renovations are fantastic along with the pool. Outlook is absolutely breathtaking. It’s just a shame the older part of Plantation hasn’t been updated as it pulls the overall down. We go there for the location, beach and stunning scenery

Plantation Island is the best for kids. So much to do, so safe and lots of other kids to play with.

Not bad for a quick trip

Pros: Loved the variety of activities you could do and the fact that there were areas that you could escape to for peace and quiet.
Cons: The food options could be improved and the tour options booked out really quickly so perhaps they need to increase the availability.
Location: Water was fantastic and clean. Island hopping options were good. Weather was fabulous.
Rooms were clean and serviced daily. Food options were outrageously overpriced and were generally low end quality. Food at the restaurant was nice and atmosphere was more relaxing away from the general food areas but $240 for lobster was ridiculous. Had a great time snorkeling on the reefs and other water sports. We were there for a wedding and the event was beautiful and well prepared.

Still Renovating

It appears that every time we have stayed at the island there is always renovations of some type going on. From my experience if you maintain as you go you don’t have to perform expensive renovations especially disrupting families on holidays.

Good family resort.

Plenty to do, or not. Definitely a family resort, plenty of parents and children about, however okay for groups who don't expect anything beyond a relaxing time away. Bar drinks more or less on a par with Aus. Beer from the small shop slightly less than over the bar, however, the price does not change with quantity. Price for 1 is the same if you buy 100. Maybe stock up for light lunches before arrival at the resort if you take the meal deal for the breakfast & dinner buffet, which I can recommend, plenty of food & a good variety with a dinner theme each night.
