“Nice, but nothing luxurious”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

While I generally agree with many of the comments in prior reviews, I wanted to share a slightly different point of view -- maybe having slightly higher expectations than some reviewers based on my other travel experiences. The location is great (fantastic beach, close to good stores and many good restaurants), but the property itself is fairly basic. While it is nice, clean and well maintained, it is not anything special. Rooms are decent size and furnishings are adequate, what I would consider typical of a 3 star hotel standard. Also, while the 2 floor layout does have some advantages -- e.g., bedrooms downstairs away from common areas keeps things quiet for sleepers -- the 2nd BR in our unit (#206) was fairly cave like with a view onto a roof in the front of the building. This layout also means there is no bathroom on the main floor necessitating lots of trips up and down the stairs. All in all, I prefer a 1 floor layout where all rooms have beach/ocean views since that is typically why I pay to stay oceanfront at the beach.
We stayed with friends who did a timeshare swap for their 2 bedroom property in Hawaii via Interval International. I would question the "Premier" rating of this resort -- would have expected something with a few more amenities, or a little more luxurious to justify this rating.
All in all, I would say it is a nice property for families looking for good, clean accomodation in a great location.

Stayed 5/31/14 to 6/7/14 and can't wait to go back. Very comfortable and peaceful place. We had a one bedroom and it was completely furnished with everything you need. Stayed on the 4th floor. Elevators were prompt. Front desk (Bunny) is very informative and helpful if you need anything. Nice grocery store about a mile away. Great Pool. Shaded as well as full sun decks. The condos are right on the beach so you can walk 50 yards and you are in the Atlantic. Plenty of restaurants in the area. Nice little exec course that you get a discount on when you play. Nice find.

Room Tip: They all face the ocean. We were in 404 and it was a wonderful single unit.

We own weeks for the Plantation Beach Club {Our Vacation in Paradise}managed by HGVClub/ Only 30 units total/all ocean view!!!Our one-bedroom unit there are also 2 bedrooms( all other units face Ocean Atlantic) so close to the water you could hear the waves breaking on shore. The view was spectacular complete with coconut palms and sunrises. If you have ever been on a cruise and enjoyed it Plantation Beach Club is the closest we have ever gotten to the sounds of the water breaking on the shoreline.Sitting in our attached screen enclosed lanai whether at sunrise, throughout the day or in the evening enjoying a late night drink it is so relaxing that you feel as though you are alone with the relaxing sounds..
It was one of the most beautiful and relaxing places we've every visited. complete kitchen + furnished with all kitchen needs/appliances, Separate bedroom, screened lanai, elevator, social gathering room Washer/Dryer in all units + laundry detergent/Free High speed internet in all suites+computer avail in gathering room/CD Player/ Wii/Two large screen TV's/Bedroom/Living Room

All you needed to bring yourself & bathing suits. Shopping is very near by(Healthy walk)
Heated pool/Jacuzzi/Sauna pool side lounges/chairs/tables/umbrellas and Plus two BBQ grills for guests use also Free beach chairs/umbrellas.The parking garage was only steps from the lobby elevator and everything was very convenient.
The staff was extremely helpful knowledgeable, personable (friendly) and courteous.
We ate in many of the surrounding restaurants, walked through the Stuart and Jensen Beach Resort towns which are devoted to restaurants, resort type shopping and local artist & cultural events.(never tired of the towns!)Golf & Tennis Courts
definitely return to the Plantation Beach Club our Vacation in Paradise

This resort is a real find and we will be going again should a swap become available. We spent the second week of our Florida vacation here after a busy week in Orlando. We picked it due to the location and the fact that all apartments had a sea view and boy did they - fabulous doesn't say enough. Don't be put off by the aged look of the outside, the apartments are decorated and furnished to a high standard and the layout, on two levels (2 beds) is brilliant. The staff also make this a paradise because they are there if needed but not in your face. They genuinely care that you are having a great time. The free use of beach chairs and pool equipment was a real bonus.
One little glitch was they were replacing all the balconies due to weather damage and this caused some noise for the first few days which although didn't deflect from the view etc wasn't pleasant. However once finished it looked brill and had we stayed a week later we would have been none the wiser. The staff again tried hard to make sure we weren't too put out and in their defence the weather had held them up or again we would have been none the wiser. DO NOT LET THIS PUT YOU OFF but do check for any construction when you book.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent with a fabulous view but 3rd floor is best for views. We had 303 which had...

Quiet but not boring! Plenty to do and see in the area-check out all the beautiful nature preserves and centers, beaches, museums and parks. The resort is beautiful and clean, love the two bedroom floor plan and ocean view from every unit! Can't say enough about the nice staff-had a few issues with lightbulbs and phone at check-in, and their handyman gentleman was there within thirty minutes and fixed everything! On a Sunday! Love it!

I've never seen the ocean nor I have I been to Florida. It's a beautiful place to go. This location is right on the beach. We saw a water spout the very first day. The employees are very kind and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to come back.The only down fall is the local drivers....no patients!
