We recentaly visited the Royal Plantation for a 5 night stay in April, 2015. You absolutely can not go wrong by staying here. I'll break down the visit and mention what we found exceptional and worthwhile. We decided to use Club Mobay at the airport in Montego Bay. It was so helpful. We arrived on a Friday and the lines...

Royal Plantation is a very nice, upscale all-inclusive resort, with only 75 rooms so it is much more boutique than what you might picture as a Caribbean all-inclusive resort. There's not wild dance parties and beach volleyball or ice luges, so if you're looking for a hardcore party spot, you're better off at another place. However, if you are looking... More

My wife Marie and I stayed at the Royal Plantation for the second year in a row. Last year we enjoyed it so much we contacted our travel agent as soon as we got home to book for this year.

This was our 4th visit to RP in as many years. We felt a distinct difference in the level of service and detail. The move from Beringer to Mondavi greatly diminished the quality of the house wine choice. In previous years, getting a Corona was standard, now its no longer available. Although we have always tipped for extraordinary service (beyond... More
