Loved It

The ambiance of the place is what made it for me. It was way more paid back than the 5 star resorts we also stayed in. I enjoyed my stay here equally to those, but for different reasons. Don't be put off by the comments regarding the age of the place, its the location that really makes it.

Great for families

Beautiful location on white sandy beach. Accommodation is average standard.Staff friendly.This is a very big resort and it is continuing to expand. Great for families. If you are a couple looking for a luxury vacation , they have an adults only resort adjacent to Plantation called Lomani Resort..

relaxed island feel

Very nice island, lots to do or not if you wish. Good to be able to use four restaurants. Food was ok for buffet in main restaurant but a little on luke warm side at bfast. Quiet rooms in back of garden although a walk to main part. Beachfront hotel rooms ok but old. Three pools good so not on top of all the children if you wanted a quieter holiday. Nice staff, good shows and band at night after the childrens activities. If you don't want a holiday with children running around you stay next door at Lomani which looked lovely. Plantation would be great if you travel with children.

It WAS a holiday

The island was ok for a bit of time out and to relax away from it all but it could do with some fine tuning. nightly entertainment was boring,the meal deal cost doesn't warant the quality of the meal in the main restaurant we found ourselves eating dinner at Ananda's Restaurant at Musket Cove 9 out of 12 nights there and it was excellent hopefully with the renovations they are planning it will put some life in to the island.

After the cyclone

Our accommodation was quite roomy and the air conditioning worked well. However because there was no glass in the windows we had to keep the shutters closed to make sure the air con worked at its best as it was very hot. As we like to snorkel we were disappointed that the snorkelling was not very good near the shore. We did do 2 boat trips every day to snorkel and most of those were lovely. The food was very ordinary and they had trouble with gluten free even though they assured me that they catered for special diets. The gluten free bread was cakey and there were no desserts at the buffet on any night that I could eat. The staff were obviously exhausted and not very happy but this is probably because they had been worked too hard after cleaning up from the cyclone. They need to provide more $15 trips for snorkelling and take them to several places not just the sandbar. Also not much for people to do if they did not have children there.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

If you require gluten free food take your own bread and cakes and cereal. If you cannot drink dairy milk, BYO long life milk. Go to a supermarket or vege market and buy nice fruit/veges to take to the island. Some people took their own toasted sandwich makers.

Fiji getaway

Plantation Island Resort was exactly what I expected after reading the reviews on the internet. It is a tired resort but if one gets a good discounted deal it is a pleasant location, especially for families with kids. and comfortable. The more expensive resorts either side offer up market restaurants and bars which provides an alternative for adults.

fantastic family holiday

This is our second visit to Plantation and we will be going back again. The addition of the Black Coral al la carte restaurant improves the food options if you dont like the buffet style menu. They could do with more free kayaks etc but other than that it is great destination for a family holiday.

ok place

My wife and I went to plantation island from 10/3-14/3/2012. We paid over AU$530 for one bedroom for 4 nights. The room is quite empty and dated. There were 2 very noisy fans on the ceiling and air con wasn't working properly, and by the last day it died completly. But for the last day, the manager gave us 100FJD as compensation which made us feel a bit better. With other reviews, people say food wasn't good. I disagree. We tried all 3 fish dishes, and kingfish dish for 3 nights, but every time they came with a different set up which surprised us. They were very tasty. But the buffet lunch wasn't very good. The flame restrauant was a highlight. About AUD$5 expensive, much better service and envoirment, food is very tasty too. Wife wanted to drink a coconut, wasn't availabe every afternoon.(We got up late.) Activity wasn't that much for adults. Wife wanted go to a island hopping tour. but they left 20mins early which made wife very upset as we leaving on the following day. At night, the crab racing and dancing were very impressive. No live coral around the island, but see lots fishes.
