We just returned from our 2nd stay at Sandals Royal Plantation. We went a year ago for our honeymoon and returned for our 1 year anniversary. We absolutely LOVE royal plantation. The list why is so long that I would be here for hours typing away, so I will tell you some of our highlights. 1) Though small in size,... More

Love this place! Very quiet, delicious food and impeccable service! We married there under the Gazebo and had a reception for about 26 people. The staff did a great job! I loved the Peacocks everywhere- I think there were 14 on the property. Restaurants had delicious, fresh food. Would totally recommend!!

My husband and I are just finishing our stay and I can not say enough about our butlers Neil and Kenroy. We were at the resort for out 31st wedding anniversary and their attention to details was just wonderful. They have made our time here very memorable.

This was our second time to this resort and let me tell you it was equally if not more outstanding than the first time. We have already booked to return again next July for our anniversary. Upon arrival we were greeted as though a member of their family had returned. There had been a mix up with our booking that... More

My wife and I wanted to have a relaxing vacation for our 20th Wedding Anniversary without the kids. We normally have high octane, 2-3 week trips exploring a country, so this was a real change of pace for us. I had to use a travel agent to figure out what options were available (Shout out to Kathleen Irving of Interline... More

My wife and I recently returned from our third trip to The Royal Plantation. While the resort has a new General Manager, it is still a first class destination. Like many other people who have written favorable reviews, we love the quite and relaxing Caribbean atmosphere of this beautiful resort. From the morning breakfast on the terrace, overlooking the ocean,... More

We have been to sandals Montego Bay and really enjoyed it there. We were spoiled with a butler suite. Last year we booked royal plantation for the butler service. The resort is classic British Caribbean style. Not the newer hotel chic. It was beautiful and spotless, more upscale and less party place. The food was outstanding at all the restaurants.... More

Both my wife and I appreciate the quiet and tranquil atmosphere offered along with the personal touches we experience each and every trip!! If you are looking... More

I sit here gazing out from the veranda of my room wishing I had more time to be here. We will board the plane ✈ home 🏡 in the morning and will be asleep in our own bed tomorrow night. Our week here started out a bit rocky, but with a few well placed comments, our issues were remedied. We... More
