  • I cannot express how amazing my entire wedding weekend was. The Plantation staff put on a wonderful event for us. Everything was so beautiful and well executed. Jacey, our Event Manager, was very helpful throughout the process and made my wedding completely worry-free and seamless. We had quite a few last minute changes and Jacey was kind enough to accommodate these additions. Over the weekend (Thur/Fri/Sat), the families hung out by the pool and used the property facilities. Anne-Marie was so wonderful all weekend at the pool bar. The activities coordinator, James, was also kind enough to humor the other side of the family with a movie of their choice on the Saturday Movie night. We are a needy bunch and everyone was just so accommodating. The West 82 restaurant produces AMAZING food; though, you do have to make reservations if you want a table which was a little inconvenient for us (to our own fault). Saturday, we rented some boats to go to the springs and search for manatees. We had... Read more

  • Our wedding at The Plantation on Crystal River was perfect and a huge part of it was not only the resort and the location itself, but all the help from the resort staff and on-site wedding coordinator. We loved this venue for a number of reasons. The ceremony site/gazebo was beautiful and in a unique location out in the springs. We liked that guests could stay on site and not have to travel to the ceremony or the reception site and wouldn't have to find a way back to their hotel after the reception. All of the waitstaff and staff at the hotel were so accommodating and helpful to us and all of our guests staying on site. The food for the wedding and our rehearsal dinner came from the on-site restaurant and it was beyond expectation and much better than usual "wedding food". I, as the bride, also really appreciated the spa onsite that did all of my bridal party and mine hair and make up on the day off. Having everything all in one place made our wedding much easier to plan and eas... Read more

  • My husband and I got married here on March 4th and it was perfect! Lori did such an amazing job with guiding us throughout the entire process! The food was absolutely delicious and the set up from the gazebo up to our reception hall was absolutely amazing. We truly have nothing but great things to say about this venue. All of our guests commented on how gorgeous our ceremony location was (at the gazebo) and how gorgeous the location was in general! The staff there was so friendly and readily available and everything went so smoothly! Definitely worth every penny put into our wedding!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks Karleen and Derek. We truly appreciated being part of your special day!! Hope to see you two again soon, Lori Sansing Executive Meeting Manager

  • We fell in love with the Plantation the first time we visited it and we are very happy with our choice. Everything about our day was perfect and Carrie and the rest of the staff were great to work with on every aspect. We had 75 guests at the Point for an outdoor ceremony (love the view and the two gazebos) and indoors for the reception in the Palm Room.

  • We had our wedding at the plantation on crystal river back in October 2016 and I have to say it was the best choice that we made. From the people taking care of us toe the service for our guest and the quality of the food. I have to say that everyone of our guest that we talked to told us how good the food was and how beautiful the plantation on crystal river is. I also have to give Carrie some kiddos for making sure that everything went smoothly. Carrie is a true help and knows weddings and the in's and outs of what should be done. Over all it was the best day of our lives.

  • Our wedding was perfect and flawless! Carrie and her staff knew what to do and how to prepare for it! Since the initial meeting until the day of the wedding, I was able to contact her and she got right back to me. She helped me to create the wedding I've always wanted and dreamed about! The staff at the Plantation were friendly and also helped when they could! I don't have any regrets from our wedding day and booking with the Plantation on Crystal River!

  • I worked directly with Tracey Montesano for our event. I came to Tracey and showed her the signed contract I had with a different venue. I told her my kids really wanted to have their wedding at the Plantation, I showed her the contract and asked her if she could come close their price. Not only did she come close.... she beat their price and I was thrilled! While working with Tracey before the wedding she was always very easy to reach and get along with. She listened to what we wanted and sometime helped us to find an even better way of doing things. The night of our rehearsal .... much to my surprise.... she was by my side every step of the way. I didn't realize that she was going to be standing there to assure everyone was walking down the aisle when they were suppose to, but that was a huge help for me. And on the wedding day she was there for any extra's I asked for. Even the day after the wedding she helped us to find missing items and arranged for things to be bro... Read more

  • I was extremely excited to tour and book with the Plantation especially because of all they offer for your guests! I requested pricing and got their generic email then asked to tour their venue and no response. I called twice where the reception said they will call me back, but they never did. Do you really want to have a wedding where they don't care about your special day? I definitely don't.

  • We were very discouraged when we did not receive return calls or even emails. I eventually spoke to someone else and was very pleased with the results. She was able to calm our fears and corrected the issues.

  • Wedding coordinator needs to be re-trained. Resort need a total renovation. Guest need a better room rate so they don't have to drive a mile down the road. Front desk management needs to be re-trained. Wedding on water out by the gazebo was nice except at 6pm the sun comes down & heard to see. The venue was great except newly renovated bathrooms had major plumbing problems. Bridal suite was nice size. Villa's have a long walk back to resort. Wedding staff is poorly informed & managed. Rehearsal dinner was out by pool & was just..ok. Wedding food was good. Cash bar didn't take cr/db cards, most people don't carry cash & drink charges were to much. Watch your cr card bill with charges not authorized by yourself. I am the mother of the groom. My next son was interested in this venue but not now after all the problems.

  • Stayed at this hotel the beginning of September for scalloping and was highly disappointed. Hotel is in a great location and very clean but their hidden fees really made me mad. I reserved my room online and reserved for 4 people (screen shots below) when I got their the man at the front desk told me I only reserved it for 2 and sat their and argued with me about it. He told me I could rent a roll away bed for $25 a night.... I’m sorry but this bed should be free it was their mistake they gave my room away. We declined the $25 a night bed and went out a bought a air mattress which I was embarrassed my friends had to sleep on for 4 nights. Then I checked my bank account only to find the hotel pending a charge on my account. I was confused and told my friends staying next door and they explained to me when they checked in the lady at the counter told them their was a resort fee. No one told me about this resort fee when I checked it and it was not posted on their website. So my good de... Read more

  • We got engaged at the wonderful gazebo, 11 months later we were married in the same spot. We had a few ups and downs with coordinators, loosing 2 and getting a brand new one just 2 days before the weddig, but Carrie stepped up and really set our minds at ease and allowed us to really enjoy our wedding. The grounds are amazing, the staff was very sweet and personable. I highly recommend The Plantation!!
