Our butlers, Anthony and Ashpole, we’re fantastic. Very attentive and ensured that we were happy. The trip was great and the food was good. The staff kept the room very clean. Sanitized, felt really safe. That fact really put our minds at ease. The staff also made our anniversary special, on a couple of nights. After our couple’s massage , we came back to a hot drawn bath with rose pedals adorning the suds. The massages was great and relaxing. T The dolphin excursion was fun and memorable. The dolphins, Tony ( female) and Mitch(male) were showstealers. Only downside was a broken pipe and the response of the management.

The staff at the Royal Plantation make you feel like royalty. From the GM Arnold to our Beach Butlers Adrian And Danny we feel like we are home every time we arrive. The food is by far 5 star to go with the setting.

I am writing this review in the hope that it will provide helpful information to future travelers and to say thank you to the staff at RP. We just came back a few days ago. It was my 5th time at RP and first time post Covid. We had a fantastic first week (Jan 1st-8th) but then our Covid test (PCR because we are Canadian) came back positive only an hour before we were scheduled to leave for the airport. To say that we were completely shocked is an understatement. We had 0 symptom except my partner had some stomach issues on day 2-3 but we still think it was unrelated. We took every precaution (triple Vaxxed, very rarely inside, if inside always wearing a mask, PCR negative tests before coming, not engaging in any group activities and keeping to ourselves, etc.). First 24 hours after the test results were frantic. It's the unknown and trying to understand next steps. Can we stay in our room, when can we get re-tested, when can we fly back, are we going to get sick, etc. With the recent highly contagious Omicron surge, we were hesitant to travel and actually called Royal Plantation in December to get some additional info. We were told there had been a few recent cases but very low numbers. Most importantly, they told us that we would be able to keep our room (was VERY important to us) if we would test positive and that all would be taken care of (food, etc.) at no cost. We decided to travel because of this Sandals Covid Policy. Well, I am happy to report that they kept their word and did everything in their power to make our ''Covid Stay'' as stress free as possible. It all started with our priceless butlers Gladstone and Sheryll. I really don't know what we would have done without them. Since we could not leave the room, they were attending to all our requests and we felt very taken care of which you can imagine is very important during those uncertain times . Anything we asked, we got. No questions asked and always with a smile. Tamara, the butler manager was also extremely supportive and caring. We can't thank her enough. Everyone at RP from the friendly room housekeeping staff to the office manager were a big help and support to us. It's when things don't go as planned that you can really see the quality of an organization. We were able to retest after 5 days and left the day we got our negative results (less than 24 hours after our 2nd test compare to 48 hours for our 1st test). Kept coming back to RP because of the exceptional service and this time proved to be the real test. Thank you again RP and especially to Gladstone (a real class act) and Sheryl. Can't say thank you to everyone but will finish by a special thank you also to Barbra at the restaurant. She's a real professional and very attentive. Safe travels.

This was our fifth trip to the Plantation and the 2 year delay was worth the wait. Our butlers Richard and Duwaney anticipated everything we wanted and made our trip very memorable. The beach staff of Adrian, Romane and Daniello were very attentive and allowed us to rest and relax every day . Great sense of humour shared with them every day. The Peacock bar staff were always happy and smiling . Uton and Junior made terrific drinks and kept us smiling every night. As usual all the food was incredible . Breakfast , lunch, our afternoon snack and dinner were always delicious and the service was fantastic. Thank you to all the staff for a great vacation ….. god willing see you in 1 year
