This is were my husband and I stayed for our honeymoon. Every single thing was fantastic. The food, the service, the room, the beach. They even had workers cleaning the sand on the beach so that it was all white sand with no seaweed or anything floating up from the ocean. I want to go back ASAP!

Spent 10 nights here and although the weather was awful for the first 5 days, once the sun came out we were able to enjoy the hotels beach facilities. The hotel is situated in very pretty grounds which are well maintained, my criticism would be that the beach is very small and as the sun rises behind the hotel the... More

Overall the hotel is very nice and the service and the food were excellent. We had a very pleasant trip from the airport with Sean. The hotel staff are very helpful and pleasant. There were only rare individuals that were not that pleasant. The initial room that we were taken to was on the ground level without much of an... More

Just stayed at Royal Plantation. I loved the hotel's decor and architecture. The level of service that the staff provides was impressive. The restaurants were fantastic. The beach was private and quiet. If only the weather would have cooperated. We had 5 of 7 days that were rainy/overcast. Having said that, I can't imagine a nicer place to stay. Give... More

Stayed at the Royal Plantaion to celerate a 50th Birthday. All in all everything was excellent. Wanted to upgrade my room when I arrived as there was no availability when booking but found the room category we had was perfect.

Just got back from a week at RP. We stayed in a Honeymoon Suite with verandah to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The room was very nice, with the only issue being no plug-in in either bathroom. I needed one in front of a mirror to use my curling iron. There's a plug-in and mirror behind the desk (if you unplug... More

What can I say, This was one of the best places that my husband and I have ever stayed at. We have traveled extensively to the Caribbean and this by far exceeded our expectations and then some. We were looking for a romantic getaway away from our children and after much research, we chose Royal Plantation. It was a great... More

First I should start off by saying I took over three months to find the perfect resort for my romantic getaway with my husband. We were there from Jan 9th -16th. On arrival at Montego Bay our transfer went perfectly. Our driver, "Cool Dave" was great and a perfect start to our vacation. When we arrived at the resort we... More
