Hello! Excited to be planning our 10th anniversary trip and I think we've finally settled on Jamaica. I was all set on Sandals Royal Plantation, but am also considering the Butler Village at Sandals Grand Riviera. I do like the allure of a smaller, more intimate resort while still having the privileges at the large resort next door, but I'm wondering if we could get the same feel for less money by just staying in the Butler village at SGR.
Does anyone have any comparison between the two options? I have seen reviews saying the food is the best at SRP, but we are not huge foodies so not sure how much that really matters to us. I would just hate to pay more for SRP and then still find ourselves trekking over to SGR for beach, pool, and restaurant variety. But would we get better service at SRP? One other consideration would be the location of the rooms - I know SRP are all oceanfront, and the Butler Village looks like a pretty far trek/shuttle from the beach at SGR, I'm thinking we may want to be closer to the beach. Really looking forward just to laying on the beach and raising the flag for food & drinks whenever I desire! Any input is appreciated, thanks.Edited: 04 February 2014, 02:11
