We have stayed in resorts were the room smells musty from the ocean breeze and humidity...

Stayed at Plantation Resort Rainbow Beach for 4 nights over Christmas. The rooms are exceptional & we were lucky enough to have a Ocean facing Penthouse with roof top access. Everything is is walking distance once you arrive allowing for the car to be park for the entire stay.

Nice unit on top floor. Good size, good facilities and great view. It is starting to show a little wear and tear and some of the outdoor furniture is in need of a few repairs. The mattress in the main bedroom was a little uncomfortable. Helpful staff. We still loved our stay and will be back.
