Words can't explain how amazing this resort is, and how relaxing of a trip we had. From the moment we stepped off the plane and waited in the beautiful Sandals lounge at the airport (with a fresh Red Stripe in hand!) all the way till our last day, everything was perfect. Our butlers Olivia and Hector went above and beyond... More

Just got back from SRP 3/24/2015. As others have said, it is very intimate with only 74 rooms. The food is superb. The facilities at Grande Riviera next door are available and we have heard great things about the sushi restaurant. The Italian restaurant has great food, but the atmosphere is a bit spring break like. Not that that is... More

this is a little bit of a late review but here goes. Flew into kingston which was hassle free i mean we were the only plane landing at the time in and out in about 45 minutes. Would much rather fly into kingsto than mobay. It is about one and hours drive to ochi rios but the new road does... More

If you are coming to Royal Plantation (RP) you will enjoy it immensely, but we will likely not return, for at least 20 more years. My husband and I are in our mid-forties. Although we love the tranquility, I would have preferred a little more "fun". This resort is for those who are retired or close to retiring. Here is... More

Earlier this month, we spent a week at the Royal Plantation. Once again it did not disappoint us. The service, entertainment, and food were excellent. It was a quiet, laid back vacation for us, which is exactly what we were looking for. There were a few things that we found not up to par for the resort but they are... More

We stayed here for a week in the Governors Suite. The view from out room was incredible, the room very spacious and the balconies were huge. We opted to have breakfast daily on the balcony, with a view like that there was no need to go elsewhere! Our butlers, Ashpole and Sean were Great! They made our trip so special... More

Superior accommodations, superior service, superior food, superior local, only 74 rooms!!! Excellent beach, BIG Sandals down the road for when you are in a party mood, etc. BUT don't buy the hype about the Catamaran sunset cruise: 20 speakers blasting away, just a party boat filled up by the bigger Sandals resort clientele.

We visited this resort March 4-11, 2015. We've been to 3 other Sandals properties in Jamaica and this one didn't disappoint. The staff is fantastic, the food is amazing. The only complaint I have is the amount of beach chairs with shade (umbrellas) available. If you don't get your items on the chairs early morning, you're out of luck. Arnold... More

My wife and I traveled to Jamaica for the first time in May 2014. From the moment we landed in Montego Bay we were offered drinks and great customer service. When we arrived at the resort we were meet by our butler ( all rooms on this resort are butler rooms). Our butler Fiona was amazing, she carried our bags... More
