Plantation Island Resort Review

A water sports–packed sheltered lagoon nudging 7 km (4 mi) of white-sand beach, loads of activities, and a kids' pool with waterslide keep young families returning to this 23-acre tropical playground. Waterskiing, sailing, banana boat rides, kayaking, snorkeling, and island-hopping keep the waterfront abuzz with bathing-suit clad guests, who can munch on something light from the snack bar or get a caffeine-charge at the sandy-floored Cocohut. With three pools (including one quieter "infinity pool" for the grown-ups), minigolf, 9-hole, tennis, and three places to eat, Mom and Dad will want to pack walkie-talkies along with the suntan lotion. The five room categories are sufficient if not particularly stylish, although the top-end Beachfront Bures are on the gorgeous beach. Deluxe Garden Terraces, while newer and equipped with small living areas, are much farther from the beach than the less-expensive Studio Garden Bures, some of which face the sand while others view it side-on. Two kids under 16 stay free with two parents.
