This property is really a great place in Ocho Rios. It is an all around beautiful spot with incredible amenities. The population is a bit older than the other Sandals but that may be due to the higher rate. If you want more activity they are happy to shuttle you to another property. I highly recommend this resort.

We booked our trip months ago, with another couple, and will be arriving the beginning of September for a week. All your reviews have given us great insight and for that I am grateful. The four of us have travelled to other Sandals Resorts, including Antigua, Bahamas and Jamaica in Montego Bay over the past several years. I have to... More

We have traveled all over the Caribbean and this is now our second home. The atmosphere, amenities and the food and drink are superb, but it is the staff that makes this place a must visit. We have never encountered staff like this anywhere in all of our travels. No matter who it is or what they do they are... More

If this is in your budget range and you have not visited, you are missing out of a wonderful vacation. This is not a high energy resort, you can always take excursion packages or visit another Sandals property. Hotel is small enough to make friends and discrete enough if you want privacy. This should be the #1 hotel in Ochos... More

I have traveled to most of the Sandals Resorts with my husband and this offers the most privacy and excellent service. Not too much going on at this resort but relaxing. We really enjoyed doing absolutely nothing but being pampered by our butlers. Breakfast in bed everyday if you wish. Room decorated with rose petals after dinner. We enjoyed eating... More

We stayed from 8/9-15. Our bus ride was smooth and we were with another couple that was coming back for their 7th time. (The were like little kids on Christmas morning). On first glance the resort is classy, charming and spotless. We stayed in the Plantation Oceanfront Butler suite (room 205). Despite not having a roman tub(which doesn't really matter)... More

We went to Sandals Royal Plantation last October, 2013. A gift from my wonderful father, after the loss of our youngest son. We were shell shocked and needed time away. The staff and property are exceptional. Out butlers were outstanding and all of the staff took time with us and helped us move on in our journey. This September marks... More

Unfortunately you cannot photograph service, because if you could the picture would be breathtaking. The Sandals Royal Plantation surpasses every expectation in service and cuisine. The only disappointment is that unless we visit again (which we will) all other vacations will be subpar. Understand that this write-up will not do diligence to how the staff can impact your vacation. Ranked... More

My husband and I stayed at Sandals Royal Plantation July 23 - 30, 2014 for our fifth visit and found everything to be as great as our previous trips. Food and drink quality excellent, but the very best thing about this resort is the staff. Room butlers Richard and Sheldon were always there when needed, but not at all intrusive.... More

My husband and I got marred at the Royal Plantation on July 18 this year and our stay was from July 16-23. It was amazing. Everyone was super nice and gave us great service. The food was out of this world. Naomi the wedding coordinator was amazing and made our special day go smoothly and everything was perfect. We did... More
