The Plantation Club in The Dunes is one of the premier amenities offered. The Dunes of Naples strives to promote good health, staying active, and participating in outdoor activities. The Plantation Club encompasses all of those values. It features six lighted tennis courts, and a tennis pro shop. There is also a full service fitness center. Several rental cottages, which are fully furnished, are within a short distance to the dining area, the pool area, and the fitness center. Additionally, the Plantation Club offers a spa and massage center. The Plantation Club offers a caribbean resort-style restaurant with casually-elegant dining and socializing.

The restaurant at the Plantation Club features both indoor and outdoor dining options. There are bars inside, as well as outside. The bar inside is located in the dining room, while the bar outside, located by the pool, sports a tiki-bar feeling.
