We stayed here with our young boys. Our room was great very nicely decorated. Great pool area with jacuzzi and Tiki Bar. Grounds are beautiful and surround by canals that have occasional manatees swimming through. Plenty of outdoor activities such as shuffle board, croquet, hula hoops etc. Two restaurants and spa also on property and golf course across the street.

My mother lives nearby so I have stayed at many of the local hotels over the years but this is my favorite. The rooms are more than adequate and you can play golf, swim with manatee, go diving, head out to the beach, go boating, or just sit by the pool. The restaurant is always been good, as it was...

Cabinets and fixtures are tragically ourdated Golf balls under the furniture and the throw pillows appear very worn! Not a lot of...

we were only able to stay two nights at the Plantation on Crystal river but so wish we could have stayed longer. The location of the hotel is perfect!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the end of our world wind Southern States vacation. The room was very clean and comfortable, the staff is amazing and very friendly, and on our first night here after check-in two manatees swam up to visit us right by the pool. So exciting!

Overall, very good experience. Rained most of week-end so didn't get to do much of what we'd planned but staff was very nice and golf course, what little we got to play was very nice. Rooms were nice and also quiet.

Awesome place. Really upscale looking. Rooms and grounds are really clean. Tons of activities for kids. Heated pool is great. Tiki bar is nice. Large golf course for those that play. Views are great. It's right on a set of canals. Dive shop has boats for rent, five trips and swimming with manatees.

Stayed at the Plantation to swim with the Manatees & go fishing. The Plantation Hotel is the nicest hotel around. We stayed at the golf course rooms and they were OK. I think staying in the actual hotel would have been nicer, but the golf course room was move like and apartment, so it fit our family. Golf course "apartment"...

How can you not choose to stay in a hotel where the grounds are covered in beautiful trees and landscaping vs asphalt? Most hotel rooms are the same, a bed or two, nice bathroom, tv, wifi, etc...and all of those amenities were great at this hotel. I had read a review that a customer complained of a "wet" odor at...
