We have arrived home safe and relaxed. We had a lovely and restful time at the Royal Plantation. Our room was lovely with a fabulous view. We stayed for only a short while but our 4 days spent here left us feeling recharged.
While the beach was good, the spa was rejuvenating, and the dining was delicious by far the most impressive part of the facility was the staff. At each turn we felt that everyone we encountered was invested in our happiness. While we would not have imagined a "butler" would be something that we would need or want for a vacation, our 2 butlers were instrumental in making us feel that we got the most out of our short vacation. Ricardo and Orayne were both helpful and efficient in organizing our days so that we could get the most out of our stay. They struck and excellent balance between being friendly and welcoming hosts while not being intrusive in our all "alone without the kids vacation".
I have only 2 small concerns. First, while the room was lovely and the view fabulous the bathroom was in need of some TLC. Secondly, we were so pleased with the service provided by Ricardo and Orayne that we wished to leave a note before we left. When we asked at the front desk for a feedback or comment card we were told we should just post it online and we were given a card telling us how to post on Tripadvisor. Hmmm
