My Review of Plantation Bay Resort Cebu

It does look spectacular. But underneath this it really is all man made. If you can handle the “fakeness” of this resort you will enjoy it. There is plenty of activities to keep the whole family happy. I also think couples will enjoy it as well as it just looks so pretty.  I wouldn’t class it as one of the most luxurious resorts in Cebu. While it does look 5 star, it feels more 3 1/2 star. The rooms while nice enough are really just average. The food is ok but nothing I would call fine dining. The buffet breakfast was again ok, they had different themes each morning. The beach front area is pretty ordinary too, but this is generally what you will find in Mactan (unless it’s a man-made beach).

I feel Plantation Resort is a notch down from some of the other more luxurious resorts such as the Shangri-La Cebu, JPark Resort and Crimson Resort. It is still is a good resort to stay at in Cebu.  It’s Mogambo Spa is one of the best spas in the country.  It’s a lovely place to unwind and relax.  Like with most resorts in Mactan, it is pricey, so you don’t really have much choice. It’s not as expensive as some of the other luxury resorts I’ve mentioned before. I really enjoy coming here as it’s a lot of fun, so many things to do and it’s great eye candy to look at!  Well worth considering if you are looking for a nice place to stay under the tropical heat of the Philippines.  I’ve stayed here a few times now over the years and its a resort I can well recommend if you don’t mind the thinks I have mentioned above. Please see the video above for a guided tour of Plantation Bay. Below is my older video I made.
