Myself, partner & 2 children aged 2 & 4 stayed for 1 week in May 2014. This was our 3rd visit to the island that we have always enjoyed in the past but this time we found it to be very disappointing. I had always read the scathing reviews & thought come on people this is a 3 star resort...

We arrived here after spending 4 nights at the Raddison, Denarau (which was perfect) and we were so disappointed. We ended up not even staying one night and getting back on the ferry to the Raddison, all very expensive, but it was not worth ruining our holiday! Firstly it took ages to check in, not much attention given to us....

We have just returned from a week long stay at Plantation Island Resort and it was wonderful. We were traveling with three kids aged 7,4 and 2 and with friends who have kids the same ages. We did all our travel in one day rather than staying overnight on the mainland, which meant an early departure from Sydney but worth...

This was our 2nd trip to Plantation Island. We love it. Very relaxing atmosphere and perfect for families. Food was great. We had no problem with the breakfasts at all. Plenty of selection and as the resort was quite busy, the food was always fresh and replenished. As for buffet dinners, no probs here at all for selection and quality....

You may think I'm a snob, but I'm sure there are a few of us out there. The place is teeming with Bintang singlets and great big red tattooed beer guts. We paid over $900 AUD for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom bure. It was rubbish. The advertising as a 2 bedroom place was misleading, it wasn't cleaned once,...

This was our 2nd visit to Plantation Island in the past 12 months and I don’t know where to begin. There has been a massive drop in the quality and standards of everything since 1st visit.

We came to the resort as part of a day trip with Coral Cats. We selected it because it stops at Plantation & we had had a fantastic family stay 7 years earlier. We had the best BBQ lunch, the best food of the entire stay. I can't talk highly enough. We had been to a steak restaurant & this...
