When we first arrived we were a little disappointed in the room, more especially the shower area. This is an older style room with a bath tub and shower curtain. We have stayed at a resort in Cancun Mexico that had an awesome room with a huge walk in shower and a sitting area that was large and comfortable so... More

When we first visited Royal Plantation in 2005, we were told if we ever returned they greet us with "Welcome Home"...and they did! I'm ridiculously late in posting this...My husband and I returned to RP March 2014 for my 50th birthday with another couple and it was probably THE BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE...or at least in the top 3...

This was our 7th stay at RP, 99 nights in total here, so you can see we love this small hotel. The staff are the number one reason we keep coming back and although old faces are gone and new appearing, the standard of service remains excellent. The new management team of Ferry and Arnold are already making a big... More

Sandals Royal Plantation- 1/22-1/25. The property was wonderful and the staff was extremely friendly. Kenroy and Neil did a wonderful job as our Butlers. They were very attentive and extremely helpful. The rooms were clean and quiet and the fridge was always stocked with our choice of refreshment. We liked the idea that we were able to walk to the...

My wife and I had a fabulous time at The Royal Plantation. Our room was lovely and comfortable, and it was well maintained and cleaned. The food was fabulous, especially in Le Pappillon, although we were disappointed that we could never eat out on the terrace there. Everyone (staff and guests) were very friendly and we were made to feel... More

Sandals Royal Plantation 10/28 – 11/04/2014 We have stayed at many Sandals resorts, but this was our first time here. We had booked this resort with our wonderful travel agent, Ruth DeMuth, to celebrate our 29th anniversary at a great price and decided that this was a trip we couldn’t cancel, as the current price is about $1,500 more. We... More

We visited this resort last year and are returning again next month, can't wait. My husband and I love food and this resort had the best of any vacation we've been on. Wish there were more chairs and umbrellas on the beach, because you have to get up early to get a spot, especially if you want to be on... More

We were at SRP for 5 nights around Christmas. It was our first time to Jamaica, our first Sandals and our first all-inclusive. We don't really drink so we weren't sure how it would suit our needs. It was fantastic and well worth it. We were 3rd floor West bldg - convenient to go out to the beach in the... More

just got back, was a bit fearful of being isolated and bored at a resort with sedentary activities (and many guests preferred to lay around all day, enjoy the gorgeous quiet and private beach, the attentive service, the free kayaks, hobiecats, snorkelling and glass bottom boat, as well as the fun activities that the social director O'Shane (what a name...
