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.

The Sandals Royal Plantation is the Caribbean's most exclusive beach boutique resort for adults. Nestled atop a seaside bluff above the stunning Caribbean Sea, this resort presents the perfect setting to truly get away from it all. Located on two pristine, private beaches, each of Sandals Royal Plantation's 74-suites enjoy direct ocean views and butler service. Amenities include a pool, three gourmet � la carte restaurants, 24-hour in-room dining, a 5-Star Diamond Award-winning Red Lane� Spa, non-motorized water sports, tennis courts, 24-hour fitness center and world-class golf nearby at Sandals Golf & Country Club. Sandals Royal Plantation is the perfect vacation spot for those who enjoy the finer things in life.
Location: Ocho Rios, directly on the beach, 90 min drive from Sangster International Airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Lscuneo : Miami, Florida
35th anniversary

Our butlers, Audell & Chad, were excellent. We loved the room, the location, the amenities & especially the staff. We have been going to this hotel since 1982 and this is the first time we have disliked the food. The ribeye was literally inedible. We could not cut into it. The filet was the same but for the fatty edge. There were good meals but please don't elect to save on food quality

Most Enjoyable Vacation Yet!

Our experience was incredible! Our butlers Kadesha and Robert were phenomenal and made our vacation that much more enjoyable! Robert always said "of you are good then we are good" and that they were!! We will be back very SOON!!

Quiet, peaceful, boutique resort

This was our second visit to Royal Plantation, and we returned because we loved the smallness of the resort, its quiet beauty, and, most of all, the warmth and friendliness of the staff, who make you feel as if you're not a guest, but a friend. Within a short time we found ourselves laughing and joking with them, asking them questions about their lives and future goals, and getting to know them as individuals. They really do make a huge difference in the quality of our vacation, as compared to other resorts where the staff is more aloof. We'd like to make special mention of staff members that we greatly enjoyed: our outstanding butlers, Sean and Gladstone, who were eager to make our stay worry-free; Tevin "from Heaven," who made water aerobics fun and tried to teach us Jamaican patois (we provided him with many laughs at our attempts to speak it); Cleon, Danielo, and Andrew, our ever-attentive and personable beach butlers; Michael, Kimberlee, Andrea, and Natalia, the reason we never missed breakfast and the chance to chat with them; Oliver, the pianist who could play most any request on the piano and allowed us to have a great time singing along; and "newbies" Jerome and Akeem, who were both charming and showed great promise to becoming super staff members. The intimacy of this resort and its friendly culture is conducive to meeting and socializing with other guests throughout the week, an aspect we highly valued. We will be back!Our room was spacious and the view of the Caribbean breathtaking; the only reason for the four stars was that the room decor and bathroom (both in design and function) need updating.
