I just got back from a couples trip that my work provides for all of its managers. We stayed here from Thursday Jan 17th thru Monday Jan 21st. The Royal Plantation is a very small hotel, only 74 suites. This hotel is for an older crowd, did not see many young couples at this resort. The rooms at this hotel all face the ocean with a view of the water and are very spacious. The bedroom portion of the hotel is very nice, the bathrooms are a little dated. Everything worked, but just looked like it could use a little update. The food was above average, with several selections at each restaurant that were unique. Make sure to get the Lobster BLT by the beach at the grill, it was fantastic. The staff is very attentive and will go out of their way to make your trip an enjoyable one. The beach and pool are small, so our larger group from work decided to walk to the Sandals property next door for a larger pool. I can't fault the hotel, especially if you are traveling as a couple, you will not need the space our large group did. If you are looking for complete relaxation, this resort is for you. If you are looking for nightlife, I would choose another property.
