Our first time at an all-inclusive and we did it right! We had a fantastic room and great butler service. The beach and the pool are quiet during the day, great for relaxing, napping, reading and low key splashing around. You can go around the beach to the property next door to eat at their restaurants or party on the... More

I don't know where to begin except from the minute we got off the airplane. As my wife and I walked in the sandals lobby at the airport I was greeted at the tap by I gentlemen that introduced himself as my airport butler. He proceeded to find us a seat and brought us drinks and food as we waited... More

We are a little late submitting this review, but it has allowed us to compare The Plantation to other resorts and butler service since our visit in August 2013. We give this stay 4.9 out of 5.0. This place is fantastic! As a little background, we are extensive travelers and have visited around 30% of the world's countries staying in... More

For the resort itself - a 5 star is deserved. It is a perfect resort for couples that just want to spend time with each other. There were three issues that made the resort lose a half star: (1) tipping; (2) service; and (3) butlers. The Bad and Good. The Bad - 1 - Tipping. There was so much confusion... More

We stayed here for a week and loved every minute of our vacation. Our butlers Sean & Fiona were amazing, paying attention to detail while accommodating our needs. During our first meal, our butler Fiona called on the provided cell phone and offered to unpack our luggage. Walking into our room after an exhausting day of traveling only to find... More

I am a senior reviewer on TripAdvisor and always give an honest opinion on the service we experienced. I also consider myself very well travelled. The reason we returned to Jamaica was because we got married in Ocho Rios in 1989 and always said we would return to Jamaica for our Silver Wedding Anniversary. As you can see by the... More

I recently vacationed with my boyfriend at Sandals Royal Plantation and let me tell you it was paradise. Once we arrived, Sherril(one of our butlers) takes us to our room, I was surprised to see that there were birthday decorations, a bubble bath, and a birthday cake waiting for me. I don't think that there could have been a better... More

We stayed here for a short trip on one of those last minute deals. We wanted to check this resort out along with Sandals Grand Riviera next door. We wanted to try out a different Sandals than our usual one and see what we thought. This resort is small at 72 rooms which makes getting around very nice and you... More

My fiancé and I came for a wedding at Beaches, but that was not an option. This is the first review I have ever written, but I think I am going to start writing them more often. I would say we stay at higher end hotels and enjoy the finer things in life. I guess I should say, I know... More

This was my second visit to Sandals properly (Beaches on Turkes was the other). The Royal Plantation was everything we could have asked for. I booked the basic room and was upgraded to a suite on the 2nd floor on the West wing (I think, non-smoking beach side). The Fantastic(s): -The Staff. Our Butlers Hector and Sherril were absolutely amazing... More
