Pros: Excellent resort for a family of six for 8 days over Christmas! Layout of resort was simple and golf cart shuttles were available (great resort for handicapped.) Incredible amount of effort went into beautiful Christmas decorations and lights. Restaurants were very good and there were enough of them. Waited only twice for 5 minutes. Themed dinners were great interactive...

This resort has a nice relaxed vibe that, at least in my case, made feel like I was a million miles away from it all. I mean this in a good way. I had a nice room at the Palermo suites with direct access to the pool. Nice spacious room with a even more spacious bathroom. Lots of things to...

Plantation Bay is not a "nice and shiny, five-star hotel". It's a bit old (my first time was around 1997 or so), but it has been well-kept. I wouldn't book if this was a business trip, but it was simply perfect for a holiday. One of my sons decided to get married at the Archbishop's Palace in Cebu City. This...

I should probably start off by saying we are not usually five star resort type people, but we decided to treat ourselves on our way back up from Malapascua and booked in for Christmas Eve.

This place deserves 5 stars. The facilities are great, lots of activities to do, staff is very friendly, the man-made lagoons are nice, and the food is ok and reasonably priced. However, they have this ridiculous rule in their freshwater pool where you cannot make any loud sound since this may distract their lifeguards from actual calls for help. It...

Dear Larry M, Thank you for the high praise on our facilities, activities, food, and staff. Our policy on prolonged or repeated screaming is in place because this bothers other guests who are here to relax. More importantly, prolonged or repeated screaming desensitizes lifeguards; if someone has a real emergency, the lifeguards may assume it is just more noise-making and...
