My wife, child (6) and I stayed at the plantation for a week around the holidays. We very much enjoyed the resort. The location is very good (only a couple miles from town). You can take a shuttle or a taxi ($15 one way). We rented bikes one day and easily rode into town and back. There are walking and bike paths basically the whole way.
The villas are nice. Any small issues we had were taken care of immediately. The grounds are beautiful. The pool is fantasic. The resort is quiet, peaceful, and relaxing, yet is a perfect spot for families. There is tennis, chess, billiards... It seemed many times we had the place to ourselves! The food and drinks are quite good and very reasonable. You can always get a variety of pizza and pasta plus they have a couple of specials every night (steaks, seafood, chicken...) Breakfast was part of our package and also tasty. (Continental or cooked hot, your choice.)
The staff is very friendly all around. In particular, the owner was outstanding with his handling of suggesting, booking, and advice related to tours. The selection of tours in the area is endless. We took 4 in total, all wonderful. All tours picked us up and dropped us off within a few meters of our villa.
Much recommended. If we ever make it back to the port, we'll stay at Plantation.
