The Certificate of Excellence was founded by TripAdvisor in 2010 and aims to recognise and honor businesses in the hospitality industry that consistently deliver exceptional service to their customers. The certificate is awarded globally and recipients include a large variety of businesses from Michelin star restaurants to small cafés.

“Here at Plantana we strive to be true ambassadors for Caymankind; to share our beautiful island with all who visit and offer them a truly memorable vacation experience. I am so proud of the team here at Plantana and how hard they work to ensure that our guests enjoy their time with us and keep coming back. They are truly deserving this recognition.”

In order to select Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a series of requirements that account for the quality, quantity, and timeline of reviews submitted by travelers over a 12 month period. They also look at the business’ tenure and ranking on their popularity index. In order to qualify, businesses must be listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months, maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five, and have a specific minimum number of reviews.

Plantana has received high praise from TripAdvisor reviews with many calling it a ‘slice of paradise’ as well as praising the destination for being a great family vacation experience. “These condos are fabulous! Never crowded! It’s on the beach and its paradise! Condos are immaculate. Grounds are pristine! Grocery store nearby. Everything is close,” one TripAdvisor reviewer said.
