My girlfriend and I visited during Jan2017. Luckily the weather was good during our stay, however we were told that the weather was not good the week before our stay, hence part of the lagoons were closed for cleaning each day, which makes the lagoons available less, luckily was still enough since it is not a high season. The food...

Just back from 6 nights at this resort and i am still finding it difficult to find something bad about our whole experience.

There are plenty of restaurants and one of them...

Plantation Bay is a good family resort in Mactan with large comfortable rooms, fantastic lagoon pools and great service. The kids really enjoyed the pools and fun activities and the adults enjoyed the massages! Food is good and there are several restaurants to choose from.

We chose Plantation Bay Resort and Spa as the venue for our family reunion. The resort offers various activities for the kids and adults for all day recreation. We stayed in the Seychelle area, in a two bedroom suite with living room in between. The floor area was huge. I like the bedroom decoration, reminiscent of hacienda houses. Wifi in...

Stayed as a family of 4 in Feb 2017. In short, we absolutely loved this place. If becoming detached from reality for a few days is what you are after then this resort fits the bill perfectly, you do not have to leave the site for any reason if you do not wish to. We were told they were at...

our first impression.. WOW just WOW. The inhouse pool/ocean was just an eye catcher. we enjoyed it so much we didn't even feel the slow check-in(but because there was a truck full of tourists) as the day went on our expectations were kind of falling down. Their amenities is limited. They don't have any letters that says this amenity is...

The lagoons are truly stunning, and the sheer quantity of facilities is better than anywhere I've been to before, games room with pool and table tennis, lots of restaurants. The only negative was the ridiculous price I ended up paying for laundry, but I guess that's par for the course in a place of this price.
