We spent 3 vacations at the RP in the last few years. Last trip was 3 years ago.
We even brought friends with us on our last stay. Always a favorite for my husband and I when we travel without kids (best place to relax) but I have to say that we were not as impress the last time around. I won't go into all the details on why but let's just say the personal touch was lacking and we didn't feel that the fact that it was our 3rd time at the resort made a difference. The room category you get makes the difference....
I was also surprised that the RP didn't make the list of Condé Nast Traveler Reader's Choice Awards. Jamaica Inn next door did and I always wondered if the Jamaica Inn was a better choice but we never wanted to take the chance.
We love the Royal Plantation but I don't think it's as good as it used to be (maybe since SANDALS took over?). Food for thoughts while planning our next trip.
