  • The resort is absolutely better than how you described it on your website. My family and I travel a lot and have stayed in various hotels in Europe, USA, and Asia, but it was only at Plantation Bay where it beyond our expectations. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel both welcomed and comfortable. We joined the Hawaiian Themed dinner with show during one of our nights and later discovered that your staff were the choreographer and dancers themselves. This truly increased the authenticity of our experience. Our son went to the spa for the first time, he who had overslept remained undisturbed for several hours, he could not feel more relaxed than ever. We enjoyed the bipolar island experience, the captain and his crew attended to our needs as if we were on dry land. We had a wonderful and positive memorable experience. It is our first visit to the Philippines and we wanted to say that you have presented us with an exceptional first impression. The staff being extremely polite and helpful at all times has provided us with a strong incentive to return in the future. Thank you!

  • This is my second stay at Plantation Bay. On my first visit, the staff were incredibly polite and accommodating, and the hospitality they showed was second to none - this is the same treatment I received 6 years later. The best part of this trip was that I was allowed to bring my dog - Plantation Bay had no problem with my fur baby tagging along. Thank you again, Plantation Bay and staff. We can't wait to go back!

  • The staff at Plantation Bay is second to none. Never have I felt so welcomed or well taken care of by any staff or employee anywhere on earth.

    T.C. via Google, January 2017

  • My husband and I have been coming here since 2007. We've become devotees of the Sto. Nino and during Sinulog, we always stay at Plantation Bay. Why? Because it offers a worry-free vacation, with courteous and friendly staff and many activities. The ambience is so relaxing it promotes the healing of one's self and even improves the relationship between husband and wife. Thank you, Plantation Bay!

  • Our first getaway with family and friends happened here years back. We have no regrets. No dull moments because of the many amenities. I got married at the Peninsula Beach 3 years ago, and my visitors from Australia and my hometown loved the place. Yes, a bit expensive but you are getting your money’s worth. My hubby and I loved the indoor firing range. Hope to be back one day for a holiday.

    J.J. via Facebook, December 2016

  • Every time we visit Cebu, we always see to it that we stay at Plantation Bay. Our last stay was last December 5-6, 2016 and as expected, the resort's service, amenities, and rooms are still really great. We went swimming for 2 days and it is really good. We tried all the restaurants and it was superb. We especially love Palermo Restaurant. Their pastas, tapas, and desserts are really good. We will definitely come back here. Thanks, Plantation Bay for the beautiful memories!

    A.T. via Facebook, December 2016

  • We enjoyed our entire stay, the experience was extraordinary! It was not just because we were sleeping in a resort, but because of the superb service given to us. We left our camera in the lagoon and only realized it when we were home. We thought we lost all the captured memories but when I called and checked, the camera was returned to the resorts office by one of your staff. Thank you to Plantation Bay for always looking out for your guests. We are truly grateful.

    C.P., via Facebook, September 2016

  • Plantation Bay is heaven! If I could live there, I would. We visited the resort last year and decided to come back this year. The place is amazing, from children’s activities, water slides, jet skis, and 100 more other things. The staff are always with a smile and always ready to help us with anything we need. We stayed in a 2-bedroom suite, which was huge and spacious. It was on the second floor with nice views of the swimming lagoon and beach. I highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants to be in heaven! See you soon and a big thanks to Plantation Bay Resort and Spa!

The no tipping policy was great and we are not complaining about it however, sometimes my fiancé and I feel bad for not rewarding your staff for the outstanding service. We will definitely recommend and stay in this hotel again on our next vacation. Thank you Plantation Bay for the great experience. You have the best staff working for you who represent your hotel will pride.

    J.S., via Facebook, July 2016

  • Our first-hand experience was truly commendable! Plantation Bay is one of Cebu’s most beautiful resorts, set in over 11 hectares of secluded grounds. A perfect place to rejuvenate from all of life’s stresses this resort looks and feels like you are in a private estate inspired by colonial architecture surrounded by stunning views of its water regions. Breathtaking landscape and picture-perfect lagoons for the curious wanderer. It is a very different resort with inland salt water lagoons free from the creatures lurking under the sea.But if you’re looking for the natural one, then there’s a small patch of beach privately owned by the resort. The resort was so beautifully maintained that you would think it just sprung up last week, despite its classic structural design. The several water slides, benches, caves, terraces, nooks and crannies are enough to quench your inquisitiveness, that same feeling and aura of being in Bali or the Maldives. So many things to do here, so little time! Be it swimming, water slides, biking, kalesa ride, wall climbing, archery, you name it, they have it. You could spend the entire week inside the resort and you wouldn’t even feel the need to go out.

    N.H. via Facebook, June 2016

  • We loved our stay at Plantation Bay! The facilities were awesome but the real superstar were your adorable staff! Even after we checked out, one of your staff noticed that my son, Jiman was being fuzzy, he handed him a bag of cookies to calm him down! Thank you Plantation Bay!

    M.A. via Instagram, March 2016

  • Plantation Bay is one of the best places I’ve been to for a while. Wondering why it took me this long to revisit, from what I know it was built in the 90’s. It’s one of those places that when you get there, it feels like home. I’ve been to so many locations for shoots, most of the time there are 3 to 4 good locations and the rest are just ok. Plantation Bay, there were so many inspiring, strong locations to shoot at that we ran out of outfits! The staff are amazing and the food is really good! Plantation Bay, can’t wait to be back. One for the books.

    R.P. via Facebook, March 2016

  • We stayed here for 7 days. You guys threw a great Galactic New Year's party! The food was good, the games were fun, the entertainment was great and the fireworks were far beyond what we expected. My son said it was the best New Year's ever. Thanks for a great stay.
