Plantation Bay has more water, more trees, and more space-per-guest than any other resort in Mactan. But don't take our word for it. These pictures (of Shangri-La Mactan, Movenpick, Imperial Palace, Crimson, and Plantation Bay) were all taken by Google Satellite, and are on exactly the same scale. See for yourself. (And, by the way, because of the extensive water and the profusion of deciduous trees, we're also just a little bit cooler than other resorts!)
One of these hotels looks like an army barracks
One of them looks like three high-rise towers (and is)
One of them looks like a block of apartments
One of them looks like an amusement park.
... And one of them looks like Plantation Bay!
