All around a wonderful place to stay. Quiet and relaxed. Attentive and friendly service all around. Our butler, Ashpole, was always available when needed and more than eager to do whatever he could to make the stay a pleasure. Pretty much the same for all the staff. A long way from the airport (about an hour and a half) but... More

We enjoyed the quieter intimate atmosphere and the staff was so nice. However, the private butler service was more like a conceirge service. Our private butlers weren't exactly a private butler at all. Getting drinks and towels on the beach was a challenge much before noon. When they got there though they were as nice and friendly as you would... More

Stayed at Royal Plantation for 7 nights, Right from the get go we were treated like gold a glass of wine and an upgrade to a suite. Let me say the resort is one of the smaller Sandals but big on high quality service and food. Our two Butlers Neil and Kenroy were terrific there wasn’t anything they would not... More

Sandals knows how to treat their clients. From the moment we arrived at the resort, we were treated like royalty. This is a butler resort, and our butlers, Audell and Tafari were more than outstanding. Anything you wanted was done with more than a smile. Two great gentlemen. The food was very good, but served on Jamaican time. Which means... More

My parents, husband, and I returned last evening from a delightful trip to Sandals Royal Plantation. From the start, our driver, Michael, warmly welcomed us, shared some history along the ride and made it a very pleasant transport. Our butlers Tafari and Audell were great to us. Not being used to that kind of service, we didnt ask for much,... More

We visited Sandals Royal Plantation from Sept 7-14, 2014 for our honeymoon. This resort, while not the newest resort we have been to, was by far the best vacation experience we have ever had! The service from each and every staff member was exceptional! The dining and food quality was superb and the butler service a phenomenal experience! The property... More
