We chose the Royal Plantation because we were looking for smaller more intimate hotel and this hotel passed the test with flying colours. All the staff here are amazing and so friendly & welcoming, they bring a smile to your face every day. A guy called Clayton (George as he was known by us) who works in the terrace restaurant,...

Not enough entertainment by far. Buffet and Jamaica night were horrible. A few rude servers. Pool was freezing and couldn't getin or stay in. As well as way too small and old. Needs updating. Only good thing was our butlers Fiona and Shreck! They were amazing! But wont be back until upgrades are made.

It was our second year in a row at the RP. Once again fabulous service and delicious food. Kudos to our butlers Marvin and Oren. They are the best. Additional kudos to our beach butler Cleon. You can't beat the service at RP. These folks enjoy their jobs. The beaches are beautiful. The resort itself is in need of a...

My husband and I just left after staying a week. The depression has already set in. We wish we could have stayed at least another week. I can not recommend Sandals Royal Plantation ENOUGH. The resort is absolutely beautiful, but the staff was the best part. I'm quite certain that they have the best staff in the Caribbean. Everyone went...

On arrival after a 10 hour plus flight and over two hour transfer, we went to our room and our initial reaction was luke warm. I think tired is the best way to describe the furnishing, coupled with an antique shower that had a mind of its own. However, after 24 hours the charm of the resort had worked its...

If you want time to relax, this is the place for you. There is still much to do but it's at your leisure. Housekeeping was great. Richard, our butler, went above and beyond. Cleon was very attentive on the beach. The spa was worth the money as the staff were fantastic. Overall food was about a 4 star....it was good...

An excellent small hotel and this was our third visit. The food is very good and has improved since last year but some menus (the Grill) need new choices. Overall the staff are great and very friendly. Individual service from our butlers (Gladstone and Sean) was excellent with the in-room diner being very special. Some of the entertainment over the...

This is our 3rd time here. We love the fact that it is a small but boutique hotel. Our Butlers were Gladstone and Sean - whom we had requested. They did such a great job again this year. It really is like coming home. Thanks again guys. Thanks also to Cleon, Dion (the beach butlers), Bigsey - great to have...

We've been to Jamaica many times over the past 40 years and we've stayed at numerous Sandals. We believe they do the best job of delivering a great guest experience every time. We recently spent 7 days at RP and were not disappointed. It's a small property with two small beaches and a small pool. That being said, the quaintness...
