Love the location on Crystal River waterfront. Pool was nice. Boat parking/launch was good. Some staff were very stand offish. Very short answers but to the point. Not a warm welcoming tone. Air conditioning did not work for first day 1.5 days. A portable unit was delivered but inadequately set up. Hot first night of sleep with fans we had brought from home.

Dear Valued Guest, We are so thankful you took the time to share your feedback with us. It is upsetting the overall experience of our resort failed to exceed your expectations and disappointed you in our customer service. Please accept our apologies as this is not the standard that we strive to deliver. The feedback you have shared with us has been forwarded to management for their review so that appropriate action may be taken to make improvements. I have also asked maintenance to check on the air conditioner in that room for the next guest so thank you for letting me know. I do hope to see you again in the future where we can make your next visit one to remember. With Gratitude, Maria L. Rogers Reservations Supervisor

Location was great. Beautiful grounds. Didn’t like how the toilet paper holder was so far from the toilet (children wouldn’t be able to reach). No glasses or coffee maker in the room, found it strange no menu for Room service. Temperature got cold - no heat in the room, tried but unit only gave air conditioning.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to complete our online survey, we appreciate your feedback. We have completed several renovation projects throughout the resort such as the new wood floors, the wonderful new outdoor seating area for the West 82 Grill, the fun new sports bar at the 19th Hole Pro bar, new RFI door locks throughout the property, as well as the convenient new towel dispensing machine on the pool deck, plus the new championship volleyball court, and the beautiful new fountain in our front entrance. We are still in the process of building a fun new splash pad for the kids, and there are still many more fantastic plans still in store for our beloved resort, such as new furniture that is currently being installed in the guest rooms, then soon we’ll have updated flooring in the common areas. Our goal is to provide a fun family friendly environment with plenty of amenities and activities for guests of all ages to enjoy in a relaxed old Florida atmosphere with all the southern charm this area is known for. We look forward to seeing you again! Kind Regards, Sandra Whitesell Guest Service Manager The Plantation on Crystal River
