We did a "day tour" where we just stayed for the day (8am-5pm). Our children enjoyed every minute and even though a company was having their Family Day with their employees, the resort still had its relaxing and peaceful ambiance. There were many activities to choose from, so the kids loved it. However, one pool we went to still had...

Dear Resitoy, Thank you for sharing that our resort never gets crowded. Plantation Bay is indeed very spacious, and there are so many things to do in our almost 30 acres of grounds. To create an immersive "plantation" atmosphere, Plantation Bay is heavily-planted with trees. We rake leaves continuously, but there are always some leaves on the ground and in...

We went there for their day tour package with a free lunch buffet. The whole resort is excellent. The pools were man-made but it's saltwater not the usual swimming pool. They also have the usual swimming pool near the buffet area. The food is great! Really worth it! Their amenities too and activities are included in the package. So we...
