This was a vacation dreams are made of! We were greeted warmly at the airport and whisked to the Royal Plantation in a private vehicle. The staff met us when we arrived with hugs, a cool cloth to refresh ourselves, and a sparkling glass of champagne. We met our amazing butler, Audell, who escorted us to our room. Our room... More

We just returned from our first visit -- definitely NOT our last! -- with friends who we'd listen to rave about this place for the past year. It was everything and more than they'd claimed it to be. The staff here are second to none and made our vacation so enjoyable that we can't wait to return. They truly know... More

From the second we got to the Sandals lounge at the airport, every single detail was taken care of for us. We got to the resort and were assigned Kenroy and Neil as our butlers (both of which were the BEST) and from that point on we never lifted a finger. We had been debating the cost (we usually spend...

Spent the evening at this beautiful place with my husband. Dinner was lovely and customer service was "Excellent". The Food & beverage manager Neils was on top of his game. With a manager that works like a line staff; this speaks volume. Cudos to you Neils, you helped to make our evening memorable!

My husband and I knew we wanted a destination wedding. We searched different all-inclusive resorts and decided the Royal Plantation was where we wanted to get married.

From the moment you get to the resort you can sense the staff are trying to make your stay both memorable and enjoyable. The room we stayed in was a suite facing the ocean, maid service was impeccable. The resort assigns two butlers to you, honestly we enjoyed their company more than anything. The gentleman we had were very polite... More

This was our first Sandals vacation and we couldn't have picked a more wonderful place to spend 7 days. In fact, this was our first total relaxation vacation in 11 years. We wanted a smaller resort and did not want to share our time with hundreds of other vacationers and Royal Plantation was just that. Our butlers, Aryion and Fi... More

My wife and I are veterans of Sandals properties. While we have not been to all of them (13 vacations at 8 different resorts), the Royal Plantation is without a doubt our favorite. The Royal Plantation is a relatively small resort, with slightly over seventy rooms. That is not a negative, it is a giant plus if you are looking... More
