We had previously stayed at another all inclusive in Jamaica but wanted to go back to a more luxurious resort and Sandals Royal Plantation certainly fits the bill. From the moment we arrived and were greeted with a cold drink to when we left the standard of service was fantastic. The resort itself is beautiful, lovely gardens and the original Inn is charming with fabulous views out to the sea as you arrive in reception. Peacocks in the grounds, including a few baby ones with Mum! We weren't sure if butler service would be right for us as we tend to just get on with our own thing but you can obviously chose how much your butlers do for you. We chose to be quite low key but did smile each night at the 'towel art' and the bath tub with hibiscus flowers beautifully decorating a bubble bath. Thank you Tafari.
The food was always great, from breakfast through to evening meal. Well worth eating at the Terrace at lunchtime for some chef prepared grilled fish.
We didn't go off resort to try the other Sandals resort next door which was much bigger, although my husband did go off to explore. We did however go on the catamaran trip to Dunns River Falls which was great fun and well worth the money.
We were sorry to leave as it had been a really relaxing time.
