Conventional Rooms


If you're a couple or close friends looking for something more special and memorable, choose this.


Book this if you are a family of 4 and want close access to the lagoon. Our most popular room.


With the same layout as a Lagoon Side but typically on a second floor, this kind of room is not only more peaceful but less expensive.


For smart shoppers! Save $75 compared to the Water's Edge room, and it’s also more fun for families with smaller children.

Why so affordable? Plantation Bay offers well-maintained, up-to-date rooms and facilities, more leisure activities, and warmer, more genuine service than any other hotel in the country. But we don't have to advertise (our past guests do that for us), and we don't have to pay 10 % of our gross receipts, plus another 10 % of our net, plus shared overhead, to an international hotel chain just to use its name. We pass these considerable savings on to our guests.

Some hotels offer "free" breakfast, but obviously this is built into their room rate. Hence, the breakfast is not really "free"; rather, it is "compulsory". Our room prices do NOT include breakfast. Every day, you can choose whether to have a big breakfast, a small one, or none at all, and pay only for what you consume. Our daily buffet theme breakfast is priced at P 1,200 Nett * (smaller children half-price), while a plated American, Continental or Filipino breakfast costs P 520 Nett *. Pancakes cost P 420 Nett *, and a cup of brewed coffee to take away costs P140 Nett *. If you book direct, all the registered occupants of the room can enjoy a full breakfast buffet for a flat extra fee. That flat fee is not advised for only 1 or 2 occupants, but recommended for 3 or more. After selecting a room type, click the prompt to choose this option.

Understanding Philippine Hotel Pricing Room and Restaurant Satisfaction Guarantee

Satisfaction Guarantee

The Plantation Bay Room and Restaurant Satisfaction Guarantee. We would like all our guests to feel they made the right choice in coming here. And most of our guests do, so we can afford to be liberal with those who don’t:

Immediate change of heart after checking in. If after arrival you do not think you would enjoy your stay, please advise us (by calling a Duty Manager or the Front Office Manager) within 4 hours of checking in, and we will do the following:

  1. Waive your room charge for the day (but not your charges for food, goods, or services if any);
  2. In case you made any advance payment or deposit, even for peak or blackout periods,
    the entire amount will be refunded to you by the same method/channel you used to pay;
  3. Help you book at another hotel in metropolitan Cebu; and
  4. Provide you with free chauffeur-driven transportation to that hotel;
  5. The provisions of this guarantee do not apply to guests refused check-in or ejected, for either obnoxious behavior or refusal to comply with the Resort’s policies. Plantation Bay does not suffer ill-mannered guests or those who think they can intimidate the natives. By not wasting our time and energy on a few unreasonable guests, we leave our management and staff in good humor to serve normal guests better. If we do reject or eject you, after you have paid us in full for all the goods and services you have consumed, we will escort you to our front gate and bid you goodbye.

You must, however, actually come. Our normal policies apply to no-shows and reservation cancellations made prior to check-in.

Early departure vis-à-vis the number of nights reserved. If after staying a day or more during a non-peak and non-blackout period, you decide to cut short your reserved stay, you will only be charged for the days actually stayed (you must of course leave by 12 Noon, our standard check-out time). In case you made any advance payment or deposit, the unused balance will be refunded to you in Philippine peso equivalent. Please note however that if you were accorded a discount due to the length of stay booked, an early departure may disqualify you from the discount, and the rate for the days you actually stayed will be calculated accordingly. This section does not apply to peak dates or dates that are “blacked out”, i.e., dates for which advance payment in full is required (roughly 30 days a year are peak or blackout dates); in respect of such dates, no refunds will be given for early departures.

Unsatisfactory food. When dining or drinking at any of our restaurants (but not our dinner shows or open buffets), if after eating or drinking 25% or less of the serving, any dish or drink is not to your absolute satisfaction, please advise our staff and there will be no charge for it. (We will of course offer you alternatives.) Please do this instead of just grousing about your meal later, when we can no longer ascertain exactly what the problem was or whether any staff member warrants correction.


Understanding Philippine Hotel Pricing

All prices in the Philippines are subject to 12% Value Added Tax. At the same time, in accordance with industry norms in the country, Plantation Bay also adds a 10% service charge, which is distributed monthly to all the regular employees of the hotel, in equal shares. Where a figure is shown with + after the numbers, this means that 10% service charge will be added. Thus, P 100 + means that your final tab for that item will be P 110. P 100 ++ means that your final tab will be around P 123.2 for that item, after both VAT and the service charge are added. Finally, in some cases, we quote prices "Nett", which means that whatever VAT and service charge are applicable are already included in that figure; hence, P 100 Nett means that your bill will be P 100. We apologize for any confusion this might cause, but assure you that all hotels in the country do (or should do) the same thing, with the difference that we actually pay our VAT taxes, and actually pay out the service charge to our employees, whereas some might not.
