Not what we expecting- low class & low quality
Posted Mar 27, 2017
The plantation cottages were extremely disappointing. My now-wife and I spent a couple days in Wimea to finish up our week-long honeymoon on the island. The cottages were disappointingly terrible- disgusting/moldy/dirty bathroom, you could see the ground through the floor in some parts of the cottages, there were bugs flying around inside all day/night because there is absolutely no seal around any of the doors and/or windows, and we woke up with ants crawling in the bed. it's was also never mentioned that there is no AC in the cottages, only small window units that struggle to keep up with the tropical heat. The pool was lackluster as well, very dirty and mildewy as well. The beach that the plantation is situated on is a black sand beach, which makes the water extremely murky and dis-satisfying (I now notice the only beach picture they include is of the beach at night, so you can't tell it's black sand). The pictures found on their site show the central building and some of their nicest large cottages. For the price-per-night that we paid, it was an extremely disappointing stay. For almost the same rate, were were in a 5-star villa on the other side of the island for the days leading up to our stay. We knew this would be a different experience, but we were definitely unhappy with the results of our stay. The way that the plantation is advertised and marketed is, in my opinion, is not an accurate representation of what they are providing.
