When we visited Sandals Royal Plantation it was for a business trip, so we did not get to spend lots of time enjoying all the great amenities of the resort, so I can only comment on what we personally experienced, while staying here.
The resort itself was great! Beautiful gardens, amazing views, nice beaches, well up kept.
Our room: Was a partial ocean view with garden view and was very nice, clean and spacious. I was very surprized that since this resort is a ALL butler suite resort that not all rooms had jacuzzi bath tubs... our room did not. I guess my expectation was that Butler = higher level room amenities. Not the case. Many rooms in the upgraded catagories DO have jacuzzi tubs in them.
I also expected that the rooms had either a patio or balcony, again NOT the case, we had only a french balcony. Not that this was a major issue, just surprized me, not what I had in mind for a "Butler Suite".
Service/Staff: wonderful, went above and beyond to provide us with any of our needs. Always friendly.
Food: there is always a wide variety of food, even for me, a very picky eater. Everything I had was great. Dinning attire was resort elegant.
Beach: West beach was more populated, with lots of beach chairs and a nice beach. The East beach is where we hung out most of the free time we found, was very quite and secluded (only 2 other couples) was on beach.
Overall: Great property, amazing staff, great food, loved that this is a bit more upscale than the average "All Inclusive" property. Resort is very laid back and quite, and the feel of elegance is everywhere.
*Note* This resort is not for the physically challenged, many stairs to get most places on property.
