My wife and I packed up the kids and headed to Port A from St Louis Mo. I had booked the rooms at Plantation based on price and proximity to the beach. I always prefer to give my money to small businesses instead of nationwide chains whenever possible. We had rented a King suite with jacuzzi tub for 2 nights. when we arrived check in was pleasant and quick even though we got there at shift change. Our room was much nicer than i had anticipated, clean and neat. the room was large enough for myself my wife and 3 children (12, 4, 1 years old) to feel comfortable in. The microwave/ counter/ cabinet section was nice and the bar sink outside the bathroom was a lifesaver. On the negative side the cofeemaker was only a 4 cup model but they provide the 4 cup folgers packets and there are several coffee stations around the area. The fold out queen was a bit on the springy side but the kids had no real issues. Overall the place was quiet and had a laid back feeling.
The lobby had a small gift area with soda nad some frozen snacks, candy and icecream as well as a microwave. while the pool was on the smal side the kids enjoyed it and there was plenty of seating on the wooden chaise lounges. While we were there they had a guest appreciation BBQ with dogs and burgers for the guests. the breakfast provided was adaquate, juice, milk, cereal, fruit, doughnuts toast, toaster waffles, boiled eggs and a hot item.
Every time i needed info about the area or had a question it was quickly answered in a friendly manner. I had the chance to extend our stay by a night and they jumped right in to make that happen for us without changing rooms.
Don't get me wrong I have stayed in 5 star all inclusives and by no stretch of the imagination is this Hotel on par with those, If you expect that kind of accomodation you will be disapointed. However for the money and proximity to the beach it is a bargain well worth the stay. The staff obviously work to make this a great place to stay. I could see sneaking off for a weekend without the kids and choosing this place and we will definately be using the Plantation Suites as our home away from home when we are in Port A.
