This was our third vacation at Sandals Royal Plantation and it keeps getting better each time we go there. We were assigned two great butlers, Tafari and Audell. These two really made our stay special. Many of the staff remembered us from our previous stay and that made us feel good. The staff here really go above and beyond to... More

My wife and I booked a week at the Royal Plantation for our honeymoon after researching several all-inclusive options in the Carribean, both Sandals-branded and non-Sandals. The Royal Plantation came up repeatedly in our searches for the best all-inclusives in the Caribbean, and we can now see why! From the moment we stepped foot past customs at Montego Bay's airport,...

This was our second stay at Sandals Royal Plantation, and definitely not our last!! We love this resort because of its personal feel and love the fact that the staff treats you like family.

We just returned from a 3/29-4/5/2014 trip to Sandals Royal Plantation. It was our first trip to this particular Sandals resort (7th Sandals trip overall). I had been following the reviews for this resort for a while, and I jumped at the chance to go when Sandals was running the triple-point SSG bonus back last fall. We booked this trip... More

My wife and I have been in Jamaica 18 times before but have never stayed at the Royal Plantation. What a mistake we made in the past. Our butlers Chadworth and Ashpole were extremely gracious and helpful. Chadworth even delivered hot juicy patties from town after hearing my wife say how much she liked them. Often there would and appetizer... More
