JULY 2014

Hi Lesley

Just a quick note to say thanks for all of your organising. The holiday went very smoothly and we had a fantastic time. The boys loved just about every minute of it!

We wanted to give you some feedback on Plantation Island Resort as most of it was really good and thought you might like to know what worked well and what we thought wasn’t so great so you can advise others.

The location was fantastic – it was great being on an island, very relaxing and easy to make the most of snorkelling, swimming and water sports. The rooms were excellent in terms of layout – worked well for both families and we were next to each other which was also great. They were pretty tired though in terms of the bathroom, couch, bed covers etc but not dirty.

The pools were great and they added brand new loungers while we were there which made them even better.

Babysitting was easy to organise and the kids club also easy to get the kids into. We felt that the staff did lack some of the enthusiasm and warmth that we had seen in Denarau and Vanuatu. The Kids club was pretty dark and tired and a bit chaotic but we didn’t have any major concerns just not that same feeling that the staff were totally into it as we had seen in the other places we stayed.

We really did have a wonderful holiday and enjoyed the island a lot. We are not sure that we would go back but that is more about wanting to try different places rather than plantation island itself. It has so much going for it and it would only take a few things to make it even better. I think their statement a 3 star resort in a 5 star location is pretty spot on.

Thanks again for all of your help especially with finding somewhere in a very busy time of the year at short notice– we will book earlier next year if we go in school holidays!
