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.

Great experience

I was here in January for two days when we had a sudden death in the family, late at night. Our travel agent arranged for an early flight out. Three or four staff members went out of their way to come give condolences, and they even gave us a voucher for the days we would miss. I don't think I would have gotten the same personal experience elsewhere. So fast forward to june nu husband and I came back to use the voucher. Our butlers were Neal and Orlando again. We couldn't ask for any better. It's a tough job sms they did so much and yet made it look effortless and with genuine smiles the whole time. For anyone who had never been here, all rooms have butlers. The property is quaint and quiet, I mean this in the best possible sense. You can take the shuttle next door to sandals ochi for drinking. My advice don't waste a dinner over at ochi unless you really like huge buffets, the food at royal is better. The difference in this resort is a friendly service oriented vibe, and you can get to know the staff who will remember you by name and feel like friends by the end of your stay. The beach is really nice even though it is small it is never crowded. Cannot wait to come back to our second home!!

Great Experience at Royal Plantation

service was outstanding and we really enjoyed everything about the property. The entertainment here was nice and if we wanted a bit more energy the larger property was right next door. Was perfect for our group.!

Amazing Service and all staff so kind and caring!

We had an amazing trip to your resort, the staff and service was excellent. Unfortunately, it rained the majority of the time we were there last week, however we still had a wonderful time. The entertainment was incredible, especially Oliver on piano in the Wobbly Peacock!

Sixth visit to a Royal Plantation- they keep getting better

As my husband and I arrive home from our Sandals Royal Plantation visit, we reflect on how much we appreciate all of the staff at the Royal Plantation property. Each and every member of the group are outstanding in their own way. But the most important part of the visit is the exceptional level of perfection that you receive from the staff that make your visit one that you will never forget. They never forget your drink of choice and always deliver with a smile. From the breakfast staff to the Beach Bar with Cleon, Daniello, Romane and Andre to any other restaurant that you may choose, you will find the level of service to be on point as the resort is determined to offer the very best in service to a level that exceeds your expectations on every level. General Manager Arnold Nugent, Frank, hotel manager to Marvin in guest relations, all ensure that your visit is most comfortable.Some of the staff have become great friends. Sharing pictures and family moments are very important in making you feel like part of the Sandals family. Laughs are part of the daily conversation-so be ready for lots of smiles.The food is excellent. We enjoyed some of the best steak dinners at the resort. The quality and size of the steaks have greatly improved as well as the hamburgers. So fantastic!! Our hats off to Chef Tesmon that provided a lovely birthday dinner and cake for our good friend from South Carolina. The dinner was exceptional and beyond words. Nothing prepares you for the exceptional management staff and team that has been compiled to represent the Royal Plantation. Always a pleasure and cannot wait for our seventh visit. The first six visits were the best and will never be forgotten.

46 years and going strong!

We recently had another wonderful stay at Sandals Royal Plantation and would like to use this forum to express our appreciation to the excellent team members on staff who did so much to make our stay enjoyable.We visited this amazing resort 46 years ago for our honeymoon and we believe that first visit set the foundation for an amazing marriage. We started our family and then after a few years decided to resume visiting our home-away-from-home for yearly vacations. We truly believe that Sandals Royal Plantation is indeed a gem and will always be our little spot to relax with each other.Of course, this wonderful resort would not have its claim to fame without the exceptional staff that work there. We have certainly found a second family and appreciate all they do for us day after day during our stay. We would also like to point out that not once has a staff member been rude or unkind to us in any way; they go the extra mile to ensure that we are always comfortable and feel right at home.We would certainly run out of space if we listed everyone that we have come across at the resort and how they have touched our hearts and lives in such a special way. Mr. Nugent leads a great team and their passion for working in the hotel industry shines through in all they do.There are certainly not enough words to fully express our gratitude. We will be returning to our special place again this year for my husband's 80th birthday and there is no better place to celebrate than at Sandals Royal Plantation. Thank you for a memorable vacation, every time.
