Stayed at Plantation Resort for two weeks over the December holidays ... was just perfect. The apartment was beautiful, spacious, filled with natural light and so comfortable. Everything you need to have a relaxed and comfortable seaside holiday is right on your doorstep, with all the modern luxuries one would expect from 5 star accommodation. Just love the lay out...

Stayed at Plantation Resort Rainbow Beach for 4 nights over Christmas. The rooms are exceptional & we were lucky enough to have a Ocean facing Penthouse with roof top access. Everything is is walking distance once you arrive allowing for the car to be park for the entire stay.

Nice unit on top floor. Good size, good facilities and great view. It is starting to show a little wear and tear and some of the outdoor furniture is in need of a few repairs. The mattress in the main bedroom was a little uncomfortable. Helpful staff. We still loved our stay and will be back.

Unit wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing. Just your average holiday units, they were modern, and very clean! Excellent position next the beach. The rooms had visible wear and tear, our room had a small hole in the tiles. About the size of a 20c piece, big enough to kick your toe on! Very plain units, lacked that beach character...

Thank you for taking the time to review our resort blackhan81, we appreciate and welcome all feedback. Please be assured that I will follow up with the hole in the limestone tile and have this filled immediately.

Stayed in a penthouse apartment. it was stylish well designed large and simply outstanding. you could easily live in it! Suggest staying in a level 2 apartment overlooking the ocean. it does get noisy due to street, park and other guests if you strike a busy weekend. modern, open and great place to stay close to everything. coming back.

Modern large rooms exceptionally clean. Master bedroom and lounge overlooked the ocean - a great way to start the day with a coffee and breakfast cooked on the BBQ. Would certainly recommend this as the place to stay in Rainbow Beach for a weekend getaway (or longer) - very relaxing
