Just returned from our Honeymoon at Sandals Royal Plantation and figured I'd take a break from researching when we can pull off our next visit and write a review. From when got off the plane in Jamaica to the time we left, Sandals service was impressive. We arrived in Montego Bay Airport, and after doing the whole immigration/customs thing, we...

My wife and I just returned home yesterday from our 2nd stay at SRP. We were there last year at this same time. There really isn't any need to look at other resorts. This place exceeded our expectations, yet again. Much of the same staff are still there - Cleon and Adrian on the beach, Jason and O'Shane as the...

It has taken several days to adjust to the fact that our typical evening meal doesn't include escargo, rack of lamb or black grouper, terrific French onion soup and fabulous chocolate pudding served by the ever-smiling Simon with beautiful mood music in the background or that we won't find that Neil or Kenroy had a bubble bath waiting after a...

My husband and I spent Feb. 8-14th at SRP to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. The summer of 2013 I spent hours researching where we wanted to go to celebrate. In 2010, we had our first Sandals experience at the Royal Bahamian so we narrowed our choices to a Sandals resort. I read so many great reviews on this resort but...

My new bride and I spent our honeymoon there from Feb 4th to the 11th. Starting from arriving in Jamaica, the Sandals lounge is very nice. Self-service drinks are there (beer and soda) as well as water. Don't recall seeing any snacks. However, only spending less than 10 minutes in, it was fine to just unwind until our transport was...
