A note from Plantation Bay Resort And Spa
Updated 26/08/20


#8 of 58 hotels in Lapu Lapu
WHY YOUR NEXT VACATION SHOULD BE WITH US. A vacation in Plantation Bay will be more prudent than in most resorts for the following reasons: A. Plantation Bay is a complete destination resort, where they can spend their entire holiday without ever going outside where they might be exposed at random to the virus. B. Plantation Bay is very spread out, and almost all its facilities are open-air. As now scientifically proven, most Covid-19 transmission occurs in close-contact indoor situations in which people stay close together for long periods. By its unique open-air design, Plantation Bay is inherently unconducive to catching Covid-19. There are no enclosed corridors and elevators where the virus may linger in the air up to 4 hours after someone coughed in that space, and we have vast lagoons and pools where people will not be tightly-packed. There are a lot of activities that guests can do inside the resort, so guests will not be tempted to go out where they might catch the virus in public markets or lower-end restaurants.

Our most recent stay was for 2 nights, 30th and 31st of December, meaning we had our New Year’s Eve at the resort. It’s one place that I assumed I could trust a New Year’s Eve with, and I wasn’t disappointed. We got the one-bedroom suite. We are a family of 3 adults. I think it was a perfect choice for this stay. Spacious room, really spacious bathroom, with tub, the room was just perfect. My online booking was also smooth, and checking in and out was smoother. We were granted early check-in and late checkout. We felt the same familiar Plantation Bay hospitality as how we experienced it before. Since the place was really big and wide with numerous choices and options for chilling or swimming, physical distancing with other people was easy. Biking around was fun. Looking at our picture, my son asked me when was the last time I rode a bike, and I realized, it was the last time I was in Plantation Bay. As long as the quality of their customer service, their rooms, and their amenities remain, I will always consider coming back to this resort, again and again.

The only reason why I would come back is because I feel bad for the staff who are cebuanos and are just really coming to work despite pandemic to make ends meet. 1. They told us we can get a room and pay extra person but on our way, they took it back and said we need to get another room for my nannies, which was fine bec I didnt come to beg and I can book them room. I just find this a deceitful act. 2. Two rooms booked, a long list of mostly DONTs yet they cant give us a decent room with an AC that’s working. They had to transfer us because it was busted. 3. TV was also broken! Haha what else can go wrong in this 5-star with so many rules yet failed to meet every expectation. 4. The worst- set breakfast was horrible. Sinangag station is waaaay better than you pay for 480 pesos for this lol Plus- no dental kits haha lol and reason it, people MIGHT NOT JUST USE IT. Like what? This resort looks tired. A demanding resort with a VERY MEDIOCRE SERVICE. Nothing has changed. Failed to embrace change and catch up and innovate. No, it’s no longer a 5-star stay. Waste of money, waste of time.

Don’t try to visit this place if your a filipino, because employees here are racist. They love to serve the Korean more than their own Kind. Very unhelpful. There are more beautiful places to stay in Cebu but Not here. Train your staff again of good manner and right conduct! Waste of time and money.

Place is beautiful but there’s employees who argued and have heated arguments around guests. Hardly anyone even smile. One even had sarcastic tone when asked about service schedule available. We got scolded by an employee for giggling during a funny incident while taking pictures. We couldn’t wait to get out of there. Actually checked out a day earlier.

Their lagoons has poor maintenance, the water is dirty, when I took a bath at one of their "Lagoons" my skin was irritated and became very itchy, the reason why I tried this place out was because it was expensive and I was expecting a 5 star experience out of my money but this place is really just "main stream" and nothing special out of it, you can find cheaper deals with better experience.
