The resort offers numerous amenities including seven outdoor swimming pools, an indoor swimming pool, beach cabana rentals, jet ski, parasail, and banana boat rentals, sauna, steam rooms, fitness room, seven lighted tennis courts, lighted basketball court, beach volleyball court, shuffleboard, horse shoes, putting green, game rooms, library, barbeque grills, picnic tables, and swings.

Very nice amenities

  • 4 of 5

We had a really great time at Seaside Dreams! Our accommodations were clean, new and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all our meals, the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, the laundry was just steps away, being on the first level made for easy loading and unloading. Best of all, the beach and pools were just moments away! Overall, very very pleased with our stay and we would definitely come back.

Beautiful, Clean, and steps away from the Gulf and three different pools!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The condo is so nice! Decorated so cute! Beds were super comphy. Everyone was comfortable. First floor, so just a few steps but not bad. The only thing we didn't like was that it was 20 mins from "town" but in the same sense, it was away from it all! We had a great time! Can't wait to go back!!

Beautiful, close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice condo, very homey and the beach decor was really cute. Not fond of the bed, too soft for me. But that's a personal preference. Loved the fact that it wasn't overrun with tourists, not crowded. Beach really close, didn't have to get in a car to get there. Would rent it again!

Perfect Spring Break Trip

  • 5 of 5

We looked at several options for condos on this property, but we chose this condo for it's advertised, convenient location to everything. We were not disappointed. Not having to take stairs, or an elevator, was incredibly convenient. We backed in to a parking spot in front of the condo and lifted most of our luggage and groceries over the patio and into the condo. We didn't have to worry about dragging beach items up and down flights of stairs every day. We were literally steps away from a heated pool, indoor pool and the boardwalk. Also great for quick trips up to the bathroom. We spent most mornings and evenings on the beach watching sunrises and sunsets because we were steps from the beach. To us, this was better than watching from a high balcony.

The pictures are exactly how we found the condo. Very clean and updated. We had no issues with the condo or the property the entire time we were there. Everything is very well maintained. We were there with three teens and my mom for Spring Break. The condo was a comfortable fit for all 5 of us. Although there were a few college groups there, they were very respectful and we had no problems. This makes The Plantation a great spot for a family vacation, or a quiet getaway for the adults. Again, because we were looking for convenience, we paid to have 2 chairs and umbrella set up for us each day. If you tip, the guys will come around often to adjust your umbrella for you. You will see info on how to rent these in the condo.

The resort indicates a "game room", but please don't oversell this to your kids as it is really just a place to play cards or dominoes. There are LOTS of outdoor activities such as basketball, tennis, and shuffleboard. You simply check the gear out from the security guard. Kids were catching fish like crazy right on the beach every morning. It was so fun watching them run to their parents with the fish on their hooks to show off.

Things we did and enjoyed

* There is a convenient store (pricey, but to be expected since it's the only one around) and a pizza place just down the road. You will pass it on the way in. We ordered pizza from there the first night and it was delicious. They said they sometimes even deliver.

* Dolphin Cruise: The Fun Boat - Dolphin Cruises (We saw dolphins immediately upon leaving the dock)

* Parasailing with Pleasure Island

* Go-Carts

We hope to return soon!
