A Total Disapointment A review of Plantation on Crystal River
We had hoped that our family reunion/wedding reception would have been in a place of which we could be proud. We were so embarassed to have raved about this place to our 20 guests from all over the country only to find that the condos and rooms were filthy, kitchens poorly equiped, broken washer/dryer, manager was never available when requested, "bartender" poured olive juice into our martini glasses from a gallon jug of olives, explaining that he was not a bartender, dining room hostess could be heard yelling at the wait staff, food was tastless and over cooked, maid service was nonexistant, we took our own trash to the dumpster, the front desk was staffed by rude, confused and inept employees. We were moved from the Presidential Suite because "it was reserved for another party" to the Directors Suite only to have a leaking pipe cause part of the kitchen ceiling to fall down leaving us to a kitchen floor covered with 2 inches of water. The general atmosphere of the Plantation was that of a once lovely resort, now run down and manned by a staff who appeared miserable and overworked.
