I have to say I was a little disappointed in RP after reading all of the TripAdvisor reviews, which set the bar pretty high (too high, I think) for this resort. Don't get me wrong - we had an amazing trip, and I would still highly recommend RP, but the service just was not as good as I expected. There... More

I agree with the many previous reviews re the excellent quality of the food and service. The staff are very dedicated and hardworking and always go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. The food was so good that we looked forward to every meal for the entire two weeks we were there. The beach had torquoise, calm and... More

Can't say enough good about the friendliness and service level of the staff at the Royal Plantation. I went with a group of seven ladies(sisters, sister-in-laws, and cousins). It was a repeat visit for 5 of the group and for good reason. The rooms are spacious, the furnishings and bedding comfortable, and the view from them lovely. The food was... More

From the General Manager Mr. Peter Fraser down to the landscapers at this resort everyone is soooooo sincere about making your stay a positively relaxing, pampered, non-thinking experience! The food is the best we have ever had at an all inclusive with beef filets, seafood for days (lobster, shrimp, crabcakes, tuna, grouper) - AWESOME! The views of the ocean from... More

Our stay was December 20th, 2008 for our wedding day. It was one of the most romantic and memorable time that we have experienced . The staff was wonderful, courteous and helpful. The food was great , no complaints, the rooms emaculate, the view from our room was just breath taking. Our family was in awe when they saw the... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay at Royal Plantation, and in a word, they made us feel - Royal. Once our car arrived from the airport our Butler Ralston greeted us with a smile -- and the Five Star service began (our other Butler Jermaine also fabulous). It was late but he escorted us and our bags (bags were... More

It has all been well documented before me but I wanted to add my agreement that this is one fantastic place. I have never experienced such amazing attitude and service at a resport before. The rooms, the resort, the beach, the meals, the people - all awesome. My only tiny issue was that at checkin they asked if we were... More

I booked 1 week at this hotel for my husband's 40th birthday, which we celebrated at RP on the last night of our stay. I was concerned before we left for our trip that the hotel would not meet my expectations in terms of the room that we booked (Prime Minister's Suite), the food, the service, the location & beach,...

My wife and I visited the Royal Plantation in 2001.. We left with great memories of the experience. We decided to revisit this resort. I am very happy to say that this experience was even better than the first trip. I never would have thought that our trip could have been any better than before, but it was incredible!!! I... More
