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.

When you don't want to leave

We have just spent 8 wonderful days at Sandals Royal Plantation and it was really hard to leave on our final morning. This was the smallest Sandals resort we have stayed in and it quickly became our favorite. Even though the west and east beach look small, the wide panoramic view you get from each is amazing. Our suite also had a wonderful view. The suite itself was really nice and a pleasure to stay in.The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and always, always ready to go the extra mile for. I would love to name them all.You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Terrace Restaurant and the food was always way above good. The two restaurant supervisors/managers - Michael and Clayton were so involved with their team and the customers that every interaction was special. I would like to mention our omelet station chef Kassandra for her cheery early morning conversations and her excellent omelets. Adlin served our food with an enormous smile every time and she worked so hard to make sure we were looked after. But so did Landon and Rhyan. Karina in the Wobbly Peacock pub also deserves special mention for looking after us, and being flexible enough to make the menu meet our needs when we needed a variation on the starter.Royal Plantation is all butler service and Chadworth and Audell made things happen when we asked.We could go on - but there really is no need. Sandals Royal Plantation had everything we want in a resort and the best compliment we can give is to confirm we will be repeat guests next year.

Sandals Royal Plantation was amazing. The property was immaculate and the staff was tremendous. We had two butlers Olivia and Hector that were perfect. The hotel has only 75 rooms and is very quiet. What makes this resort even better is that it is located next to Sandals Ochi that is much larger with more restaurants and bars and fun.

Sandals Plantation in Ocho Rios was priceless. The team at sandals catered to our every need, our suite was beautiful, our butler was so awesome, the food was delicious, the drinks were on point, we were afforded a latecheck out as our flight was at 7: 56 PM . The wedding team was AMAZING!!!! My husband and I encountered ZERO stress as we were well taken care of by the Sandals team. I am so grateful for the Sandals team and look forward to returning for out first anniversary.

Second time is the charm

From the moment we stepped onto the property, we knew things were different. We were greeted with wide open smiles, wide open arms, and greetings of "Welcome Home Again". Our butlers, Ash and Adrian made sure we had everything we could want. We aren't too needy, but they made sure we were well taken care of. The pretties and yummies left in our suite were so cool...even the "strange couple" in our bed! (See photos)We only had to spend one morning on the beach and Cleon and Daniello had our mugs filled on a regular basis and the rose mist at the ready every day. I found a great treasure when we met Karena at the Wobbly Peacock. She embodies the true Sandals spirit. She is so sweet and friendly. And who knew bitters and club soda was so good tasting and good for tummy upset?My hubby had waited 3 years to come back to lePapillion. He loves the food, the personnel, and the upscale service! We were not disappointed in the slightest. He had never had some of the foods on the menu until our previous visit. This trip, we ate there every night except for the Returning Guests Dinner and the night they were closed. Mr Winston adds such an elegance to the dining experience. Romeo is extraordinary in his role at the restaurant as is the lovely Natalia. Clayton was always a jokester, a Professional married with a fun spirit. Now, like we often tell our friends and acquaintances, if you want a busy and active vacation, visit Ochi next door, and come back "home" to SRP for relaxing and elegance. We will be coming back in two years to see the changes Mr Nugent has in store. I know he and Mr Frank have big plans for the next year or so and I can't wait to see them!

30th Anniversary trip

We stayed August 5-12, 2017 and this was our first trip to any Sandals property. -Airport transportation provided by Sandals was very nice. -The room was very nice and clean but a few things needed updating like a cracked window in the shower and ceilings had a few blemishes on them. The room was a great location for the beach and although we didn't have a true balcony, the room was by the outside staircase that lead to the beach so we could open the sliding door and sit outside like it was a balcony. -All of the restaurant workers were very pleasant and friendly. -Our butlers were helpful when we needed them. Mainly once when my husband got sick and the other when we had hot water problems. They promptly assisted us. It was nice having the butlers make our dinner reservations and escorting us to the restaurants at Ochi.-This time of year was their off season so it was nice and quiet at the resort. Even with only 74 rooms, there would never be many people at the resort. There was never many people at the beaches or on the restaurants which we enjoyed. -The resort is beautiful and they constantly had workers cleaning the site and maintaining the beautiful flowers/greenery.-We enjoyed the tea time that was offerred every day.-There was a couple of things we were disappointed in such as the hot water incidents (but they did fix this one time and the other was when we were leaving so we didn't call for this to be fixed since we were leaving and the management did apologize for this inconvenience), the Power Walk activity didn't happen since the instructor didn't show up 2 times, the beach activity hut people weren't as anxious to help as the other staff people were, and the other thing that really could improve was the bus service to Ochi which doesn't run as often as it could. Busses between the Ochi sites run very frequently and since RP is so close to Ochi, I don't see why the bus couldn't take you back to RP if you are waiting at a stop. Even with these things mentioned, this was one of the best vacations we have been on and we did take advantage of the rebooking specials for next year.-The staff from the restaurant workers, butlers, beach butlers, gift shop workers, excursion workers, room cleaning staff, bar restockers, and management were so nice to be around and made you feel special. They were always smiling and asking if you needed anything or how your day was going. I have never been to a place that had such happy workers.
