“Paradise Resort”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

After our two days non-stop trek of Cebu Island, our family of five decided on our last stop...Plantation Bay. It was our first time there and after our tiresome yet wonderful adventure below and above sea level, we found a restful haven at the said resort. My family really liked Plantation Bay from the scene to the various activities, food selection down to a very welcoming and truly warm service. The place though with a rustic feel was simply breathtaking. Plantation thinks comfort to the minutest of details. We will definitely be coming back.

We've been to Plantation Bay Resort and Spa 4 times and it is always a pleasure to stay there. The staff are one of the BEST I know. The place is clean, secluded and food are great. The kids have a fantastic time at the pool, lagoon and the other activities available in Plantation.

For people who love water, the place is very enjoy as it has several pools, lagoons, and beach. The rooms are situated beside any of the above mentioned body of water so there's a swimming area wherever you are roomed. There are various types of restaurants to choose from, which have different themes. They also have themed nights, e.g. Filipino Fiesta Night, Brazilian Night, etc. They also have a videoke, game room, gym, spa, kayaks and bikes that are free of use for an hour, and conference rooms. The staff are very efficient. Food is great! The place is paradise whether your here for relaxation or business.

I do not remember of any hotel or resort where staff ALWAYS wears a smile in their faces. There is not one that would pass you by without greeting you. Their no tip policy rocks! I had wanted to tip their outstanding service and all of them will politely decline. I can tell that they are well-trained and are there to satisfy your every needs. Oh and the resort? Although it was a little off season, the resort was immaculate and ongoing repair work here and there did not bother us. We got the family room and although it was a little pricey, it was well-worth it. There was 6 of us in the family and there was way more than enough room to accommodate all of us. The bathrooms were the best ones in all of the hotels that I have been. We will definitely keep Plantation Bay in our hip pocket whenever we go back to the Philippines.

Dear Romeo P,

We're happy to learn that you and your family found Plantation Bay a fully satisfying experience for your entire family. It is a delight to know too that you enjoyed your stay even more because of our staff and no tipping policy. This is something that sets us apart from other hotels, and we're happy that you highlighted this in your review.

The Family Room in which you stayed is especially designed to cater to budget-conscious families which also want to enjoy some of the comforts of home like a dining table, bean bags, video-game console, and complimentary snack foods. And children are 100% unanimous about loving our bunk beds made from recycled old timber.

We look forward to seeing you and your family again soon.

I was at Plantation Bay for 5 nights in June with 2 friends. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, their staff is constantly maintaining the resort keeping it perfectly clean and groomed. The staff was really exceptional in all of our interactions. So kind and helpful throughout our stay. I LOVED the spa and my massage therapist, (Maya?) was just wonderful. The grounds at the spa are beautiful! We enjoyed the pools, kayaking, and stand up paddling around the lagoons. We loved the shows at night and the dancing. Such a great vacation. Kei, the duty manager, was helpful during check-out, even following up with an email a few days later.
