Staff wonderful- promised room updates disappointed- great to be with other repeat guests- weather not your fault-missed first day due to airline, also not your fault- signed up for next year again. Love that it is small and intimate. Keep up the good work.

This was our second visit to Royal Plantation, and we returned because we loved the smallness of the resort, its quiet beauty, and, most of all, the warmth and friendliness of the staff, who make you feel as if you're not a guest, but a friend. Within a short time we found ourselves laughing and joking with them, asking them...

A boutique resort that caters to everyone. Not one complaint about this place! The style is colonial and classic. This is an exquisite place that makes you feel special the minute you arrive. The staff are attentive, genuine and professional. The food is great quality and flavourful. The Red Lane Spa is splendid and worth going. The beach is as...

Outstanding resort including facilities, staff, food, and beverages. Rooms are very nice, but in need of updating. The intimacy of the resort allows for closer relationships with the staff. The warmth and friendliness of the staff is a big reason for our return.

Excellent excellent excellent. First time to Jamaica and Sandals and was impressed with both! If you are going to expect 3 star Michelin at an all inclusive then you are setting yourself up for disappointment. I went for the hassle free environment, weather and service and hit all three out of the park! The Royal Plantation was perfect for the...

A small and beautiful resort. Yes the rooms need updating but that is the only, slight, criticism. You do get a great sea view. All is excellent, food, service, entertainment etc. No problem getting beach loungers but some are taken by 7am in the morning. The gym is well equipped. I can understand why so many people are return guests....

It's a small resort so don't expect a great deal of variety in dining and entertainment. But you will enjoy what you get. Most staff members are friendly and outgoing. They'll make every effort to let you have the best vacation possible. Food & Beverage manager, Mario, is a gem and he does a fantastic job in his attempts to...
