We were looking for a place to go on our honeymoon and our travel agent wasn't crazy about this hotel, she said it was more for the older crowd. We booked here through Sandals anyway, and we were so happy that we did. Booking: As I said we booked through sandals and for the most part this was a painless... More

We just got back from SRP this past week. It was our 2nd time and again it was great! During this visit we decided to book the Honeymoon Oceanfront Verandah Suite but were booked in Room 155. I would have preferred a high floor. During our stay they were remodeling the Royal Grill which made the relaxing outside not the... More

My husband and I just returned from the Sandals Royal Plantation July 30-August 6th. We celebrated our 29th Wedding Anniversary. We booked with Yolande a Vacation sales specialist from Air Miles Reward program who recommended this beautiful property. Yolande was very knowledgeable and very helpful. We have visited Jamaica five times and stayed at other all inclusive chains. This was... More

Me and my wife went to the Royal Plantation at the end of July (2015) and had a great time. We did not do any excursions because of the short time we were there and the distance we would have to travel. I would recommend hopping between the different resorts. You have to eat at Toyko Joe's. Our restaurant service... More

We traveled here the last week of July and thoroughly enjoyed SRP... Highlights: We booked Club Mobay Arrival and Departure package and it wasn't really needed on our arrival day of Thursday. In and out very quickly. We waited in the Sandals lounge for about 10 minutes before boarding our shuttle. Surprised to find that we were the only guests... More

My husband and I stayed at the Royal July 8 for the week. It was truly an amazing experience and it will be very hard to go back to any other type of resort. ROOM-To start off all the rooms even the base type rooms are excellent . For me the most important is the sleep at night in a... More

Best SANDALS resort we've been to. Very quaint & relaxing atmosphere. Loved the idea of having a butler always happy to serve us. Thanks Richard & Chase for making our stay even more enjoyable. Elliot & Lorna :)

Our stay at Sandals Royal Plantation was well in line with any other Sandals resorts we have stayed at. We arrived by private taxi (Orville) was the driver. We were greeted by our butlers Olivia and Hector. We were given a cell phone to contact them, and taken to our room. We were in the east wing, on the second... More

Me and my husband came to Royal Plantation for our honeymoon. Royal Plantation is a very quiet resort, very different from its loud counterpart next door Sandals Ochi. A few things that I was extremely pleased with: -the waiters down at the beach would ask you every 10 min if you needed anything. -The view of the ocean from the... More
