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.

Relaxation perfected!!

We stayed for a week to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. The resort was outstanding beyond any expectation we had. One of the reasons that we chose Sandals Royal Plantation is that it is an All-Butler resort, which avoided us feeling uneasy about getting special treatment or privileges compared to other guests. Our butlers, Hector and Olivia were fabulous- leaving little surprises in the room- including a bubble bath as others have mentioned. On our anniversary we were greeted first thing in the morning by a Happy 25th Anniversary mat- written out in flowers at our door, and after dinner returned to a romantically decorated room. Every need was attended to with a warm smile- at times even anticipated. The first day my husband realized he forgot a razor, and they were out at the gift shop, so Olivia went off the property to purchase them for us. Our room had an amazing ocean view from the sliding glass door windows, and from the balcony we could see both east and west out onto the ocean- jaw dropping beautiful with the accompanying constant soft sound of the gentle waves. The beach is kept impeccably clean and the Beach butlers, Daniello and Cleon were unbelievable. They have this amazing ability to be always there checking if we were "OK" every 5-10 minutes, but without it at all feeling intrusive. The water sports are managed by the lifeguards who are also great. If you don't know how to sail they will go out with you on the Hobie- this was one of the funnest activities of the week. The food was unbelievably good- every single meal. We have never had this quality food at an all-inclusive resort before. Though the menu always sounded great, the food was always delightfully even better than it sounded. This is the perfect all inclusive for a foodie- it will not disappoint. The service from all the staff was outstanding. We were truly pampered in every way, from the waitstaff to the housekeepers, even the gardeners and the people who were doing some upkeep work (painting and retiling) make you feel like a VIP. If you want total relaxation in beautiful place where you can reconnect and delight in the company of your spouse or partner- this is the place for you. The only downside: You may be spoiled - It is hard to imagine any other all-inclusive could measure up in comparison. We will definitely be back in the future.

Fabulous Staff!

Just returned from a week at this wonderful hotel. Couldn't fault the service we received there. Charming boutique style hotel but with the option of taking in something noisier next door if you so wish as the residents at RP can use all the facilities of the larger Sandals Och but not the other way round - result! We popped over once to have a look but it wasn't for us as we got everything we needed at Royal Plantation. I was sad to leave. Many thanks to our Dream Team Butlers Ash and Adrian (the latter we sadly missed saying goodbye to on our last day, Cleon and Danello who kept us "hydrated" on the beach. We hope to return again next year to play shut the box at the beach bar!

Wonderful "weddingmoon" experience

My husband and I chose Sandals Royal Plantation for both our wedding and honeymoon and we honestly cannot wait to go back! (I won't touch too much on my wedding experience since this is a travel site, but it's worth mentioning). We are looking forward to returning for an anniversary trip in the future!ROOM:We stayed in the Orchid Oceanfront butler suite (3rd floor, east side); the view was beautiful, the bed was comfortable, and we liked how quiet and out of the way our suite was. Our only critique is that the bathroom needs renovation, but that didn't negatively impact our trip in any way.BUTLERS:Our butlers - Marvin and Oren - were great and we cannot thank them enough! From escorting us to dinner at Ochi to decorating our suite with flowers, "candles", and lights on our wedding night, they went out of their way to make our experience incredible. Marvin even served as our witness/best man at our wedding ceremony!BEACH:I spend a lot of time at the beach at home, so I didn't want to just go sit somewhere on the honeymoon. SRP did not disappoint with their watersports experiences! We enjoyed relaxing in the huge floating discs, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and learning to sail on the hobie cats. The lifeguards - Jermaine and Kemar - were really funny but also very knowledgeable about each activity and the surrounding area. When we were looking to relax, Cleon and Daniello were always around to provide drinks, yummy snacks, lunch from the grill, and good conversation. We also loved the cute little salamanders that climbed on the chairs!FOOD:We are both terribly picky eaters, but I am proud to say we both tried lots of new foods and found things we loved. Breakfast at the Terrace and for room service was pretty much the same as in the states (try the coconut pancakes) with eggs, cereal, bacon, etc. We had lunch at the Terrace, Royal Grill/Cafe, room service, at Ochi, and on the beach. Jerk chicken was great, as well as patties. The mento band playing at lunch was a nice touch. The food was incredible everywhere we went; we found the service at SRP to be excellent while the service at Ochi was terribly slow. Our private candlelight dinner with Shannel was incredible, and we are so grateful she was able to help save the night when my husband felt ill from the heat. Our honeymoon dinner at Le Papillon was delicious, with each course better than the last. Jamaica Night was insanely good and I loved drinking rum from a coconut.WEDDING:The wedding team is the best. Renna and Jason were so professional and knowledgeable, the photos from Duane were so beautiful, and the ceremony and reception will always be beautiful memories for us. We even got to take the top tier of the cake home to NJ!RANDOM:The shuttles to Ochi were super-convenient and the drivers were lots of fun. We really enjoyed our little adventure swimming/walking to Ochi on the beach side for lunch one afternoon! The peacocks, salamanders, and resident cats are lots of fun to look at while lounging or eating. The swings and hammocks above the water were really a nice touch, as was tea on the Terrace every afternoon. The pub is adorable and the entertainment was great (as a professional musician, I really appreciated the pianist in the pub and cool reggae bands!)Thank you so much for a wonderful "weddingmoon" experience that we will never forget! Can't wait to come back and visit again soon!
