We stayed at Sandals Royal Plantation over the xmas period and really thought that the place would have more going for it; We had obviously been spoilt because when we had visited the hotel before around 18mths ago the food and service were excellent. Our Xmas eve night meal was almost unedible my husband ordered Rack of Lamb where was... More

The Royal Plantation is beautiful and serene. The rooms are clean with tropical/french colonial decor, room service is excellent! Yoga on the beach is wonderful and peaceful. The spa was amazing, rivaling the best in europe. After dinner (food and service was great) play chess or checkers on the veranda with a nice cocktail! This is a great place for... More

My husband and I went to the Royal Plantation over the holidays to celebrate our honeymoon. We stayed for a full week in the St. Anne Honeymoon Suite. We truly had a fantastic stay and overall the resort exceeded our expectations. The resort has a french colonial style, in terms of architecture and decor. It is not large (about 70... More

As repeat guests, we have just returned from a 10 night stay during Xmas and New Year and my husband and I found everything to be flawless - literally. From the moment we arrived at the airport to the moment we left, our experience was beyond our expectations in every way. For the first time ever in the 12 years... More

This was our second stay at Royal Plantation (and our second time in the Governor General’s Suite). We were a bit surprised to find out that the dedicated airport transfer has been replaced by a white tourist van that seats 12 or so people – thankfully they only put 6 in ours! [And the people we met were great…though the... More

We returned last month from the Royal Plantation, having stayed 18th Nov to 3rd Dec. This was our first stay at a Sandals resort, though we have been to the Carribean numerous times. When we arrived at the airport, we picked up our luggage very promptly, having travewlled BA Club World. However after being shown to the Sandals 'lounge', we... More

This was our first experience with an "all-inclusive do nothing" vacation and in general, we had a great stay and enjoyed the hotel a lot. The arrival at the airport lounge is not really what we expected from a SLH: very crowded, lots of noice, ... furthermore we were expecting a private transfer to the hotel which was not the... More

My wife and I spent our first time in the carribbean at this property. We normally have more "adventurous" holidays but it was not in the cards for this year. If you are looking for a place to relax and have everything taken care of, this is the place for you. We were hugely impressed by the quality of the... More
