Historical Traveler Reviews Plantation Resort Surfside Beach
We have owned for 4 years now. We live 3 hours away and sometimes visit monthly! The staff is always friendly and eager to please. We have stayed in every building. We met the owner, Blaine, one night in the hottub. Great guy! He explained that he was in the process of rebuying some of the properties and redoing them. His wife is an interior designer and decorates all of the units too. He said his only regret was not installing sidewalks, but they have a lazy river in the works for the future. We feel so safe here with our kids. It's always quiet and clean. We have visited so much and gotten to know the staff that it has become another home for us. We own investment properties back home. We recently got a real estate agent and toured several condos for sale on the property. We are considering purchasing vacation rental property there as well. Can't say enough great things about the place!
What a scam
After our walkthru we decided not to buy but purchased a week stay. Once the choice was made not to purchase our rep slunked down in her seat and acted as if we were wasting her time. We later found out that not only was our great deal not all it was cracked up to be but we were charged above the highest price for our week stay. When we called and tried to get out of the agreement we were pretty much laughed at and told not a chance. I've worked customer service before, this isn't the way to treat people. If you get a chance to stay or do a walkthru.........DON'T!!!! It is simply a scam to get your money.
Its been a while since I visited Plantation, but on my 15th birthday my parents took me down for the timeshare meeting and to see Huey Lewis and The News at the palace in Myrtle Beach. The meetings were all very well setup and the staff was quite kind, even taking into consideration everything that I, and both my parents would like to know about the place. I'm 21 now, and I've stayed at the resort 3 times since we purchased, and will be returning this March for spring break. The only rooms I've had experience with are the Presidential Villas, but I have to say by far my favorite place in the area to stay. I've been to Myrtle Beach every spring break for the past 5 years and stayed in 3 other places aside from Plantation all oceanfront, and honestly I'd take Plantation above any of them. I go to these places to get away from it all and relax, if thats what you are looking for this is a great place to go. This is NOT and I stress NOT a party resort, you typically dont have to worry about people being rowdy and loud at the resort. The Golf courses are beautiful and challenging, if you get a chance please play them. One thing though, the South(I think) course has water on every hole, so if you have a mean hook like me, be sure to bring plenty of extra balls (HaHa!). Don't let the bad feedback that a few people with terrible experiences turn you away, because this is one great place to stay!
Before you even start reading this let me apoligize for how long it is going to be, but trust me keep reading and you will see this is not a place you want to go. You will find this absolutely disgustingly, unbelievable as do the many people I tell this story to.
Great place to stay
We have stayed at the Plantation Resort the last six years. We visit the area three times a year and we always stay there. The 2 bath/2 bedroom loft is very spacious. It has always been very clean and the kitchen and dining room are quite large. There is a balcony overlooking the golf course which is very beautiful. The only time something was ever wrong was when someone was playing music loud. We called the front desk and they switched us to a new room right away with no problems. We also left an item their once and didn't discover this till we got home.
We called them up and they shipped it to us right away with no cost. I would recommend staying there.
Was not impressed
Room was not clean. Microwave didn't work. Washer and dryer was rusted.
View of parking lot from only window not most impressive. These all detracted from the positives. Checkin was fast. Pool was nice. Would not return.
Beware-big bugs in the room
At check in a very nice staff tried to be accommodating with our early check in but things were made worse by the poor communications from housekeeping staff. I know those big palmetto bugs are prominent down South but I didn't expect to have to deal with killing 3 bugs out of 4 days - with no apology from housekeeping or desk staff when reported.
Distasteful. The pool was great, with a hot tub and 2 areas for the little ones and plenty of tables and lounge chairs, but I didn't like the fact that they hadn't any locker room with showers so we could have used the facilities after checkout with hours to spare before the flight. Checkout was a breeze. Lots of activities available for children and teens. Clean grounds.
Dont visit Plantation Resorts
We arrived and were greeted with a change in the time our time share presentation was supposed to happen without any input from us. This ruined our planned schedule to see sites and going to the beach. Then during the presentation the sales person acted as if he did not need our business and could care less if we bought. He mistook us for owners and thought he was selling us an upgrade. They charged us for and additional room and three weeks later have not given us a refund. DONT go!
Great Week Away
We arrived on Sunday afternoon and were greeting with courteous attendants and given instructions on everything from where to park our motorcycle trailer to all the things to do while staying there. We experienced a peaceful, relaxing week's vacation. It was a quiet place to stay with friendly people staying all around us. Upon departure on Sunday morning; check out was fast and again the courteous attendants wished us a safe trip home. Have NO complaints about our week's stay.
