A great holiday option

We traveled with 2 young children and Plantation Island Resort was a perfect place to stay. The staff were fabulous and the food was plentiful. We loved the option of swimming in the ocean at high tide or any one of the pool in the resort.

When travelling back home we stayed on Denarau Island for a few nights, to break up what would have been a long trip home.

Next time we will most likely stay on Denarau before and after going to Plantation Island.

Amazing, Relaxing, Fun for all

We had a group of 3 families (6A & 6K) staying together. The island offered something for everyone. Never a shortage of things to do and see, however plenty of time to relax and unwind as well. The food, the people (especially "Onie and Miso" and all the staff at the Black Coral Restaurant), the facilities, all were wonderful. We will definitely be back to stay again. And very excited to see the new developments in the renovations progress.

Kids Paradise

Only booked/stayed one night - our 10yr old son loved it. There is alot for children to do both on land and in the water.
The new restaurant, Tivola, was very good. The new infinity pool and accommodation at that end looks great. The rest of the resort needs abit of TLC; bures were big, clean and well ventilated w aircon and fans.
It is definitely a family resort; would not be my first choice if travelling as a couple but would visit again as a family.

A week in paradise

We had a fantastic week at Plantation. There were a few gripes, but all of these are minor. The dining is expensive, but we found ways to save. The shower drainage in our bure was slow and I wouldn’t say the bure was immaculately clean on arrival, no resort guide in the room, also no spare key available. As I say, all of these are minor issues in the grand scheme of spending a week in the special slice of paradise. The staff were wonderful, the facilities excellent, the buffet breakfast delicious! Our farewell song from our favourite guitar player was special indeed. It was a magical week for our family. We hope to return. Bula vinaka!

Fun-filled destination with activities for all ages

Our stay at Plantation Island was perfect for our family. With many activities to choose from, including the inflatable water park, snorkeling, volleyball, tennis, golf, massage, kids club, etc, there's something for everyone. It's the perfect place to relax and read a book and take the occasional dip in one of the 3 pools or beautiful ocean. We particularly enjoyed learning about the effects of global warming on the coral reefs and what the Fijians are doing to bring the coral reefs back to life. The only down-side was noticeable increases in the cost of staying on the Mamanuca Islands, but it's a small price to pay for bliss.

I have just returned from Plantation Island Resort with my daughter's. We had an absolutely amazing time. The Fijian people are amazing and Beautiful people who always welcome anyone with such a lovely smile and a massive "Bula" They are honestly the most down to earth people. The resort it's self is set on an amazing beach with gorgeous photo opportunities everywhere you look. Everything you need is on the Island. Plenty of food options are available. Plenty of Activities for everyone. My girls loved the kids club and the gorgeous people who ran it. We will definitely be coming back here for further family holidays.

Relaxing get away

We loved staying on P.I. It was just the holiday we needed. Walk out the front door and sit on the beach. Kids club was great for Mr. 5 and Mr. 11 enjoyed the water activities, snorkeling and the Bula bikes. Breakfast and dinner were lovely but lunch was a bit limited with the only option the buffet or pizza. Muscat Cove was a little bit far away for the kids to go, just for something to eat for lunch since they you can’t ride your bike the whole way anymore. When the new section opens with a new restaurant, it should give a bigger variety. Would have loved to have been able to purchase a drinks package too as this ended up costing a fair bit. Overall a great relaxing getaway. We will definitely be back!

The most wonderful resort

I can't recommend P.I.R enough. The staff from the cleaners to the reception to the gardens to the G.M are the most endearing people, not minding going the extra mile to make your stay memorable and stress free. The most beautiful location surrounded by a reef with the most astonishing array of fish. Safe swimming all around. And those who want some alone time to explore these fish snorkeling , the nannies are amazing, as is the kids club. Perfect diving only being from a 5 minute boat ride for beginners to a 15 most more experienced.

Good basic holiday

We stayed in a studio ocean view bure. It was clean and had a good view and easy to walk to beach.
Resort is fairly basic but great for kids. Really laid back. Food was average at buffet but enjoyed food at the black coral restaurant. Waterpark and non motorised sports were a big hit with kids. Enjoyed a few tours.
I wouldn’t stay here if you didn’t have kids

a beautiful island holiday

This was my 6th trip to Plantation Island Resort and once again we immensely enjoyed this tropical paradise. Why wouldnt you - with the pristine beautiful beaches, friendly bula smiles from all the staff and fabulous weather. They are doing upgrading which didnt affect our stay at all and it was good to see the new section where we will hopefully be staying next time.
I would recommend this island stay to anybody but mainly families go there to enjoy the beach, free canoeing, sailing, paddleboarding, snorkeling, kids club etc. etc. etc.

Another Magical & Memorable Holiday at Plantation Island

I've been travelling to Fiji since I was 3 years old and have frequently stayed at Plantation Island Resort,
Our stay on the Island was just magic. Front reception, Head Maitre d - restaurant & bar employees were outstanding. Everything ran so smoothly & effortlessly. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. With Bula Bikes now available on the Island for a very small additional cost, my young family 13,11,6 and myself were able to explore the Island. The Island entertainment & main activities guru Aquila was just amazing including the amazing boys who serenaded us every morning and evening during meal time.

If you are wanting a stunning island holiday at a very affordable price, Plantation Island is for you. The incredible chefs will keep you more than satisfied with their varied menu options. As it is a cashless island I personally recommend pre-paying your meals before arrival.

Some are some incredible new projects taking place on the Island including a ZipLine, a Yoga Sunrise/Sunset Observation Deck, a brand new 480 seater restaurant, new jetty & plans for an Infinity Pool.

Plantation Island Resort was everything we expected and more. From the amazing, friendly staff that go out of their way to make you laugh and feel welcome, beautiful crystal clear waters with awesome snorkelling to the yummy food, we will be back. Our boys aged 9 and 7 years had so much fun in the kids club and on the day trips to the local village and school and 2 snorkelling trips to the reef.
Our Studio Ocean Bure was perfect and comfortable for our family of 4.

My family and I had a great time at plantation, initially we were a little worried because the resort is rated at three stars but on arrival and after seeing the resort & our room we were relieved and reasonably impressed, it’s actually a lovely place to stay and we have four young kids from 2 to 7 years old and they had a great time, the location was perfect, the swimming and snorkelling was amazing. Our kids didn’t want to leave at the end. It’s not a five star resort but it’s very practical for young families and the staff were great. Thanks for the recommendation and helping us get there.

Like going home to visit family. So friendly.

This is our second time at Plantation Island because the staff are so friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. Sometimes as a parent you find the need to have a rest to recover from taking young children on holiday......not on Plantation Island.
Love the fact that there are no tv’s in the rooms, means total involvement of all family members.
The renovations and improvements that are being made will make it even better.
We will definately be visiting again.

We loved our stay which felt like a “real Fiji” experience.
Kids loved paddle boards, kayaks, water parks, pool hopping and Bula bikes.
Take plenty of sunscreen including Zinc, rashies and hats.
Studio garden Bure was spacious and serviced daily.
Buffet food was ok if you ate early.
Black coral restaurant was excellent but you need to book days in advance.
There are lots of food options at nearby musket cove if you don’t want to buy the meal plan.
Meal plan was convenient for us with young kids.
Plenty of few activities offered day and night.
No tv and limited wifi was not a problem as the kids were kept busy with all the activities.

Rest at Plantation

Been here 6 times with my wife celebrating our wedding anniversary and once for our daughters 30th birthday with our granddaughter. Accomodation has been/is comfortable with no TV's so I suppose 3 star, its clean, but a bit tired. But this did not concern us since we go there for the peace, tranquillity, sheer beauty and wonderful Fiji experience. The Resort is upgrading in stages through 2020 hence there will be major infrastructure improvements, new accommodation, venue (pools etc). General Manager Alex Wilson is a gentleman very helpful, pleasant and a pleasure to have a yarn with. Great for families. We have never had issues with children, guests or noise. We have walked around the island picking and eating mangoes and loving the scenery. But hey, please don't go there--if it gets too popular prices will probably go up accordingly.

TravelonLine.com team delivered on all aspects of our holiday. Flights, transfers and accommodation arranged perfectly. Plantation Island resort was a great choice for our family (my husband & I along with our disabled daughter, our son, his wife and our grandchildren aged 3 & 1). Magnificent sandy beach, crystal clear ocean, golf tennis 3 pools and as much or as little as you want to do. However Fiji in general is very expensive for food & drinks. Thanks to all travel consultants who I talked to during the planning stage. I’d highly recommend Travelonline.

Keen to return

the resort and experience is exactly how the website states it - we had a most enjoyable stay, spacious room 10 metres from the crystal clear beach, delightful customer service, Black Coral Restaurant food was great. Room for improvement - More fruit and vegetables as well as healthy snack options at the Snack Bar and Mini Mart would be preferred. Glass bottom kayaks would be an amazing feature!! Watersports activity hut opening times to vary with the tide changes - eg if high tide is later in the afternoon after 4.30pm (when it currently closes), open the water activity hut to extend the hours for patrons to enjoy activities such as SUP after 4.30pm. Bathroom air fresheners in the studio apartments. All minor things but we'd definitely be back for another trip... already planning next year :)

Amazing Holiday!

Plantation Island is beautiful! From the coconut trees to the beautiful water, it really lives up to the picturesque islands you imagine when going on holidays. This is an island for everyone - kids, families, friends and couples. Although the food and drinks are a little expensive, there is plenty of variety (and happy hours). You can either relax all day in the water or a beachside hammock or be active and ride bikes, surf, sail, snorkel or island hop! Looking forward to coming back again one day!

We were so warmly welcomed back to PIR, this time as returnee guests. Many of the staff remembered us and greeted us by our names! We have previously been as a couple, and with family/friends (no kids) and stay at the Lomani end which is quieter.

The location is postcard-perfect, the Garden Burre was clean and spacious for my family, the beach a short walk away, several dining options with a variable menu to suit all, and some of the friendliest staff I've ever met where no request was a trouble.
Active guests can enjoy a wide range of water activities, and tired guests may prefer to take up residence on a loungechair by the pool/beach (perhaps with a cocktail). Daily activities are available for adults, children and teenagers alike so families have the option of splitting up to enjoy preferred activities
And ensure you don't miss the nightly activities in the Copra Shed!

Magical Island Getaway for families

Spent 7 nights on the Malolo Lailai Island and Plantation Island Resort. We loved it. So much to do, especially for kids. A lot of families although there were couples and a wedding held whilst we were there.
They are currently upgrading some areas of the resort which will be fabulous when finished. The best side of the resort is to the right of the jetty, much quitter and away from all the action so much more relaxing at night. Hire Bula Bikes to get around and visit the neighboring Musket Cove resort and supermarket, much cheaper to buy supplies there. Bring as much food over as you can as we got over the buffet dinners and ate at the snack hut most of the time. The buffet was perfect for the kids thou. So much to do, a lot of free water activities and the water is just crystal clear. Magic place, we cant wait to go back!!!

We had a great time doing some of the free activities (for adults and kids), tours, local snorkeling and just watching the fish jump as we relaxed watching the tide go in and out. Just what we needed to unwind from the daily stresses.

What a stunning location

We stayed at plantation island resort for 10 nights and loved every minute of it. The location is 10/10, the water, beaches are spectacular. The accommodation is comfortable. It had everything we needed. The staff were fantastic and very accomodating. The food was good. Of the 3 options at the resort the Black Coral is the best, food and service were excellent. It’s also a kid haven, so much for them to do. We will def be returning again.

Relaxing

We travelled with our son and his wife and their 2 children aged 2 and 4. We had a garden bure which was perfect as we were close to everything we were a bit concerned that it maybe a bit noisy but not so, very quiet at night. Something's need updating like the wood area around pool needed repairs and and was a bit disappointed at the decor in dinning room could have been a bit more suited to island life. Overall though we had a wonderful time.

Tropical Paradise

So much to say...the island is stunning. The water is so clean and clear and the tropical fish are everywhere. Love that the resort are doing coral restoration. The resort is such good value, especially for families but that doesnt mean its only for families. The beach activities are fabulous and the new equipment makes it all the better. The staff are super friendly especially if you make the effort to talk to them. They are great with children too. Its convenient having a salon there and they do great mens haircuts. The resort is undergoing renovations at the moment (doesnt impact on guests as its down the end)...so its only going to get better. The food at the buffet is ok but the black coral restaurant is better. In all- highly recommend Plantation Island resort for a holiday.

The most amazing resort

I have been to Plantation 8 times and just keep going back. Traveling by myself I feel safe walking around the resort and to neighbouring resorts. The staff are so friendly and nothing is to much trouble for them from front office to the kitchen. The grounds are always beautiful and clean and the rooms are done each day if you wish. The whole team at Plantation work as one and introduce you to the most beautiful people in the world. The waters are clear with snorkeling off the beach into the magical coral and marine life. Environmental protection is important to the island from a small coral "breeding" colony already housing protection for the smaller fish, to not using plastic bags, to having a regular beach cleaning campaign which is fun for every visitor. I cannot recommend Plantation Island Resort enough to any visitor to Fiji.

We loved our stay at Plantation Island Resort, the kids had a ball. Staff are so friendly. Our youngest child is 3 so had to hire a nanny a few times to watch her in kids club etc. Nannies are great and so cheap we generally gave a little extra each time. Our room was a bit far away from everything but after we hired bikes to ride we actually liked the location. Beach is awesome, lots of equipment to use and pools were great. Only downside I found was the food, buffet breakfast and dinner was OK but could have been better. generally food and drink is quite expensive but not too bad when converted to $AUD.
I would definitely be happy to go back there again.

The buffet at the Plantation Resort was great for breakfast, the occasional lunch and for the kids but we preferred the other restaurants, make sure you book ahead :)The Adults only restaurant Lomani on the other side of the resort was also amazing food and service. The Black coral restaurant at Plantation was also great. The Musket cove resort nearby has an awesome little grocery / gift shop and cafe for lunch, then walk over the bridge to the little island for a cocktail.

Fabulous family holiday location

We have just returned from 11 nights in Fiji with 5 nights at the Plantation Island Resort. Having to leave the resort was the only bad part of our holiday, we NEVER wanted to leave and now have severe post holiday blues. Our family of 5 and our friends (also a family of 5) stayed in side by side beachfront bures, with hammocks to relax in and the beach literally a few steps from our door. The activities for the kids were endless and they didn't even use the kids club (which I heard was fabulous). We snorkelled, rode bikes to Musket Cove, visited the village on Malolo Island, kayaked, sailed, got massages, went on the inflatable waterpark, fishing charter, and then there was the relaxing by the pool or beach. Thank you to the wonderful staff and people of Fiji for a fabulous holiday! We will be back (we would come back tomorrow if we could).

Good Family Holiday

The location is great, they have well protected beaches on both sides, if one side is a bit windy then the other side will be flat so always great for swimming and snorkeling. Kids loved the waterparks and snorkelling around the jetty, as that’s where the best coral and fish are. We were 2 families travelling, 4 adults and 6 kids in total, aged from 6 to 12. Kids enjoyed kids club, always plenty for them to do there, they have an indoor and outdoor play ground, trampoline and even a jumping castle made an appearance. The Bula Bikes were great, although it can get expensive if you start hiring for multiple days but the staff were very helpful and even struck up a deal for us. The bikes came in very handy when we needed to get to the Traders Market at Musket Cove to get bread as we took a toaster to make a quick breakfast for the kids. We took a lot of chips and biscuits to snack on during the day, we still ate lunch and dinner from the resort. It’s a lovely resort in a fantastic location, be sure to do your research and have a plan of what activities you want to do, although your on Fiji time your holiday goes very quick and soon your back to reality. Vinaka to all the staff.

Just Paradise

Bula. We are a mature age couple but enjoyed our time immensely. Our family are looking to stay with a group of friends in November and the children will have an absolute ball. The beach, water, and views are beautiful. We managed to score a gorgeous sunset on our last night there. A couple of days were affected by the cyclone off Tonga, but we were still able to swim and walk around. The Ol Copra Shed/restaurant appears a little dark and would look amazing with lighter furniture, fixtures and painting, but otherwise the staff were atypical Fiji - friendly, smiling and ever helpful. If you need supermarket items, the store at Musket Cove - a 10 min walk, has a great variety and at good prices for an island shop. We had a 2 bed garden bure and it is spacious and clean. Would love to return.

Perfect tropical paradise

You can't beat Plantation for location, picture perfect beach with fabulous snorkeling straight off the beach. Always lovely staff. Accommodation is fairly basic but adequate, be sure to take repellant as mosquitos are big and ferocious. Breakfast buffet is extensive and dinner perfectly acceptable but if you want decent coffee you need to go to the little coffee shop. We were fortunate enough to be there for the Valentines day dinner (extra charge but worth every penny) The chef excelled producing a meal as good as I have eaten in hatted Sydney restaurants, fillet steak and lobster tail, and even a chocolate sphere with honey panna cotta inside, which melted when the warm sauce was poured over it.

I have stayed at Plantation Is. before but they have renovated it since. The 2 bedroom garden bure that we stayed in was excellent. Perfect for our family of 4 with still being able to use the lounge when the kids went to bed. Although it was a garden bure it was only about 30m to the beach, with a slight sea view from the patio. Highly recommend the room type. The resort itself is great for families, kids club is perfect with their daily activities and the babysitters were amazing and cheap. My daughter didn't want to leave her babysitter when we went home. Choice of restaurants were good, highly recommend Black Coral the food is fantastic. We had the meal plan and highly recommend it.

Loved plantation Island!

Stayed at plantation island resort for 5 nights with 2 kids (6,2) and we all loved it! The island itself is beautiful and water is amazing as the photos!
The poolside room was clean and spacious and had a nice Fijian vibe, it wasn’t modern 5 star hotel room but wasn’t bad at all. All the staff there are so friendly, kids club was great and always did cool activities which Mr 6 loved. We also got a babysitter several times for Mr 2 which I was hesitant about before arriving and seeing for myself, they were great! Breakfast buffet was great and had different themes for dinner each night our fav was Mexican. Cocktails and drinks were pricey but were delicious!
We loved the beach and water sports, Mr 6 and his dad loved the water park! Packed reef shoes but didn’t need them.
We really enjoyed jet skiing and the $20 snorkel! Massage was really relaxing but book in early! Also recommended hiring bikes as there is a fair bit of walking around the island. Overall loved plantation island resort and would definitely return!

You cannot beat this location. A gorgeous island paradise. We stayed for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves but you do have to expect 3* facilities. The staff were mostly really friendly and once we'd found the black coral restaurant we were happy with the food (the buffet was not our cup of tea at all).
The Oasis pool was lovely, the ocean pool adequate for kids but the kids pool was pretty ordinary with a slide and no shade at all.
The highlight of our trip was the school tour and the snorkelling - both amazing. Drinks and food were very expensive - glad we took some of our own for lunches.

This was an ideal resort for families with lots to do - sailing, paddle boarding, snorkelling and an awesome water park. Not ideal for adults due to multitudes of children. Dining options were really limited, possibly due to one of the restaurants being closed for renovation. If you don't fancy the buffet and want to go a la carte (where the food is way better) you need to book at least a day in advance. The Snack Hut is awesome for cheap food but limited opening hours.

Buildings look tired but staff and activities full of life

Many buildings need a paint or a spruce up, but every activity you would want with a young family, excellent buffet with good variety, and an endlessly warm and helpful staff make Plantation island a wonderful family holiday. Our daughter loved the kids club which included craft, playground, bouncy castle, cultural activities, sports and beach games and even Fijian Dancing. She was begging us to let her go there!

50th Birthday Holiday for Hubby

Good holiday. Service was always amazing. Probably would of liked the option to have the stand alone Bure that was actually bigger and had walls to the ceiling and separate rooms. Loved everything about the holiday.

Best holiday! Couldnt fault plantation island in any way. We will be back next year!

Highly recommend for families. Our kids loved kids club and wanted to stay with the babysitter. So many things to do and everyone is so friendly and extremely welcoming. Can't thank the staff enough for making this the best family holiday we've had! We will be back next year.

Great destination

This is a great destination for families with everything well set-up but the "welcoming" staff member we had has room for improvement. The Black Coral restaurant service wasn't good and the food was average but the buffet meal in the other restaurant was good. But in spite of these little glitches, this is a great destination for a family holiday.

Great atmoshere, friendly staff, plenty of activities if needed or quiet areas to relax .

A great spot to take children on holiday who prefer to swim and play without having to pack and move on every day or so. Everything on the 'doorstep'

Great place to visit

We really enjoyed our time at Plantation Island. Our kids are 12 and 14 and could roam around the resort freely and enjoy the many things to do with or without us. The beach huts are really close to the water and the view is beautiful. The staff are lovely and the food in the dining area was great. Don't have expectations higher than 3 stars otherwise you may be disappointed. It was a fun holiday and one I would highly recommend!

Great for Families

We continue to return to Plantation as you are part of the Family. If you want to do nothing and just play with kids and swim, ride bikes. this is great.
The food is very simple, Breakfast dinner plan is the way to go as very expensive if not in package. snack bar if you want lunches is the best bet. Rooms are clean but not flash. Have not found a better location.

Best family holiday!

We are a family of 6, and we just fell in love with Plantation Island!! The location was just perfection, the grounds were amazing, surround by fabulous beaches, amazing snorkelling straight out off the beach! We really enjoyed the food, and the staff were beautiful... We cant wait to go back..
Its imortant to keep n mind this is a 3 star resort, so a few things are a little run down, like tiles missing out of the pool here and there, the bures are in the process of getting renovated... These imperfections did not effect my stay at all. You need to choose to look past these things and accept plantation as it is, a home away from home

The ultimate family holiday.

We spent a wonderful family holiday at Plantation Island Resort at the start of November. This was our second time as a family to have our holiday there. This time we were lucky enough to go with our parents and sibings. The location and atmosphere is relaxing. The staff are accommodating and always go that extra step to make your stay enjoyable. We celebrated two birthdays while on the island and the kitchen staff made the most yummy cakes and the staff sang the birthday song which was a great experience.
Dan at the dive shop is very helpful and we were happy to see him again.
The kids club has a great range of activities to suit all ages.
I recommend going out to Cloud 9. It was worth the trip.
Anandas Restaurant has a diverse dinner menu and the playground next to the restaurant was great for our daughter to play in whilst we enjoyed our dinner.
Thank you so much to all at Plantation Island for our enjoyable and relaxing holiday. We will see you again next year.

Wonderful!

We loved our 5 day stay at Plantation Island. There was so much to do, and so much on offer every day.
The waterfront and beach areas are easily accessible, the snorkeling was amazing.
Food and drink options were good, we were happy with the buffet options while we were there.
I would advise getting pre-purchasing a meal plan for your stay.
the staff are beautiful and make every day wonderful.
Our room (2 br garden bure) looked a bit tired, about ready to be updated, BUT we didn't spend much time there as we were too busy doing activities!

Great for young kids

Spent the last 2 weeks of a 3 week holiday at the Island. The location is great, just a short trip off the main island, and the bay where the resort is, is beautiful. Be prepared to wait at the two restaurants, time between ordering and getting the meal would be 45 mins on most occasions, and the order would need to be followed up. On the up side, the facilities at PI were great. The Bure’s were well maintained, cleaned and serviced daily by very friendly staff. I think the small tip I gave the 1st week helped get a top class service, so well worth it.

There was plenty for the kids, especially younger ones from around 1-10/12yrs, with 3 pools to choose from, excellent beach with good snorkeling, kayaks, bouncy castle things just off the beach, baby sitters etc and more. Sad to leave, and an extra week would have gone down well. Highly likely we will return to PI another time, and would recommend it for familes with young kids.

Very pleasant, great facilities

The downside was no service to the rooms for food and beverages, bedroom walls that didn't go to the ceiling (our children are noisy/ bad sleepers and some soundproofing was what we wanted from a 2 bedroom bure. The quality of the food was not particularly consistent. The kids did love it and the location is absolutely gorgeous.

Beautiful Location

Recently returned from a 1 week stay in a Beach Bure. Highly recommend the Beach Bure for proximity to beach. Fantastic location. Crystal clear water and great beginner snorkelling straight out from the Beach at low tide in particular. Lomani Adult dinner was a highlight so worth taking the kids to the 5.30 buffet and placing them in kids club at 6.30 for a couple of free hours

Great relaxed destination for families.

Great location and down to earth set up for families. Lots of water activities included in the price, and good kids club. Our poolside room was awesome in the afternoons/evenings. Rooms are a little dated but roomy, airy and very comfortable. Could be more guidance/information provided on snorkelling trips etc both prior to visiting (on plantation website) and at the resort. We missed out on some trips because we didn't know ahead of time that they were only available certain days. I would definitely consider the time of the tides if I go again - high tides in the middle of the day make for a much better experience if you are into water activities.

Kids activities/Equipment

Overall a pleasant stay. Some of the kids activities were a bit repetitive so suggest that they vary it on at least a 7 day cycle as not many families stay for more than a week. Although the waterpark was new, some of the other equipment is now a bit dated.

A wonderful winter holiday

We took our 3 granddaughters (6, 8 & 9) for a winter holiday. Plantation Island was wonderful - the facilities, staff, the snorkelling, the meals exceeded expectations. The girls loved it all - and all slept very well each night! The buffet meals had something to appeal to all tastes, making meal time very easy. Anandas also catered well for adults and children. The mocktails were a real hit. Could not recommend the resort more highly to families.
