Our Opinion

The Sandals Royal Plantation is a great resort for those looking for the same luxuries of an all-inclusive resort in a more intimate setting. The resort is staffed by an incredibly personable and attentive team. This is a perfect resort for adults and couples, looking for a quiet and relaxing place to enjoy the landscapes of Jamaica. The Sandals Royal Plantation is also a wonderful destination wedding option.

Amazing resort, amazing staff!

We stayed at Sandals Royal Plantation during September 2017 to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary – this place is amazing!The beaches were beautiful, private, relaxing and always clean. The restaurants are superb and the food delicious. This resort is a place to chill, but for a livelier day / evening you have easy access to the Sandals Ochi resort next door.The staff are very best thing about this resort. Every single staff member is friendly, courteous and available to make your stay as enjoyable as it can be - they all go the extra mile. Special thanks to Steve Allen who always made us feel very welcome, making breakfast and each visit to the Royal Grill for lunch extra special and something we looked forward to each day. Special thanks also to the beach butlers Cleon and Daniello who were always attentive, kept the drinks coming and spent as much time as we wanted chatting throughout the day.We also made a very special friend, Kelly the cat.We will be going back, very soon!

Every room has a view and a butler

This is a boutique resort. It is not good for people with mobility issues though. There are a lot of stairs and climbing to be done here. There is a very small pool that doesn't seems oddly placed. You rarely see someone in it I think it is because it is right out the door to the patio and restaurants. Dining is fabulous. Butlers are very attentive but only if you want them to be. But every room has a view of the ocean and a butler. So if you are wanting a great view, great beach, all inclusive, good food, and butler service try Royal Plantation. You can get an entry level room with all the above mentioned and pay less than a butler room at most other Sandals resorts. And the best part after you are tired of lounging in the peace and quiet the Royal Plantation has to offer you can hop on over to Sandals Ochi for some night life and some amazing restaurants. And don't miss a trip or two over to visit the rabbit hole!! That is a must see!! Then come back to Royal Plantation and enjoy the quiet atmosphere and all the wonderful beach chairs and cabanas. No fighting for space here folks! The rooms are typical Jamaican Plantation style nothing extra ordinary. Other than you can wake up, look at the ocean and feast on room service while watching the sunrise from your room.

Spectacular Time

The Sandals Plantation was a beautiful experience. The grounds are stunning and the service was exceptional. Every staff person I came in contact with from the front desk to the food services to the spa was an great experience.

Top resort

Excellent resort, great food and high quality service. All inclusive including Californian wines and premium spirits. Butlers provide additional services but despite a no tip policy the Butlers have to be tipped. Golf included and course is just a 10minute ride using the complimentary buses. The course is OK and you have to have a caddy which is a minimal charge. Buggies are extra but you can walk.The other Sandals resorts can be used but the Royal Plantation is for guests only. The night club (rabbit hole) in the sandals resort next to the Royal Plantation is worth a visit.

Simply the Best

This hotel is the best Sandals, if not the best hotel period, on the entire island of Jamaica. The service was top notch, the food was to die for, and the view from our suite was absolutely amazing. I can't say enough about this hotel. This is one of the best all-inclusive establishment I've ever stayed in. You WILL NOT go wrong with this choice. Thank you Royal Plantation for your hospitality and a very relaxing time.
