AMAZING

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon and it was simply incredible here. The food was great. We heard one or two people complain that the portions are small but you get an appetizer entree and dessert with EVERY meal and if it truly isn’t enough they will happily bring you more. The staff was amazing. We got in Sunday afternoon and by Monday afternoon almost everyone we saw greeted us by name. Our butlers adrian and ash were so helpful as we had never been to an all inclusive resort before and had no clue what we were doing. They made us reservations there and at Sandals Ochi (2 min shuttle ride away) and at our request picked for us so we didn’t have to read through 20 restaurant descriptions to figure out where to eat. They made sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing so we could simply focus on enjoying our time together. We also loved the romantic room setup we got one day and kept the fun lightbulbs in all week cause we loved turning them on even at 9 AM! Jason with entertainment was great. We would have been happy to lay on the beach chairs all day but thanks to him we got up and played some bocci ball a few times with another couple which is something we would have never sought out ourselves but was VERY fun. Thanks Jason! Cleon on the beach had perfect timing and always came by right as I needed to order a new drink! And Adrian at the royal grill was so friendly and always greeted us by name whenever he saw us. We can’t WAIT to come back. We’ve already created a SRP line in our budget so that we can start stashing money away to splurge on a few more than 5 days next time. We love all of y’all and can’t wait to get back!!

WEDDINGMOON

Wow comes to ind when i say Sandals Royal Planation. I have just returned from a 10day wedding moon.From the moment i arrived at the hotel Chadworth and Audell ( the Butlers) Made everything so easy and nothing was too much trouble. The wedding planners at the resort ( Reena and Kelly Ann ) made our very private wedding very special and looked after us in very way possible. Cleon ( the beach butler) kept us in drinks and lunch daily and always with a smile.Samantha in the gift shop/photo shop. Always treated us with a smile and was ore than helpful.All the staff in the restaurants , wobbly peacock , reception , housekeeping every member of staff were so pleasant, so much so i am going toybook for net year.Audell and Chad we miss you and miss our chats daily.Can not recommend this Hotel highly enough, if its a chilling holiday by the beach or pool this is your place.See you all next year......Reena the cake made it......

Best Vacation Ever

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at the Royal Plantation in November 2017. There are so many great things to say about the resort that I couldn't possibly list them all. We loved that the property was quiet. We are both in our mid twenties but we have old souls so we loved the tranquility of the RP. If you are looking for a place to stay out all night and party hard I would not recommend this location. That being said there were tons of things to do throughout the day from snorkeling and kayaking to glass bottom boat tours and endless amounts of excursions to do. My wife and I are extremely competitive and we like to win (we call ourselves Titans) so we loved playing the couples games of corn hole, bocci ball, pool, etc. After everyday we talked about how much we loved the resort mainly because of the staff. I have to give shoutouts to the amazing staff: Jason and Akeem were in charge of the events (games, night life music, and any other entertainment you could ask for) These two people could have single handedly caused us to have the best vacation ever. The enthusiasm and love for their jobs went above and beyond anything that my wife and I had ever seen. Forget the everything else, these two made our trip and when we go back they are the first ones we will ask for without a doubt. Next were the beach butlers and the room service attendants (Cleon, Giovanni, Steve, and Daniello) y'all were AWESOME and we loved how easy you made everything for us. These six people made sure we didn't have to lift a finger and made sure we were relaxed the whole time which is what we wanted.Food was fantastic. The coconut shrimp was something we ate everyday. The only bad thing about the food was the slim pickings for restaurants at the RP. That being said Ochi resort has 16 restaurants and a party style nightlife right next door if you want to change things up.Rooms were nice and all you need. The best part was that they were all with an ocean view which was a must have for us. We didn't like the idea of having to walk a long way or take a shuttle to the beach like they have to do at Ochi or some of the other resorts. Nothing too special about any of the rooms besides that but also nothing bad to say.Butlers for us were definitely underutilized. We didn't call on them to do much but that isn't the way we are. We are the type of people that if we can do it ourselves then we will. Butlers will definitely not be a necessity next time but at this resort there is no option. That being said we did see a lot of people getting their moneys worth out of them.All in all it was an AMAZING vacation and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Relaxing stay

Had a fantastic 9 nights here. Wonderful attentive service from the lovely staff. Small intimate resort with small pool and 2 small beaches. You’re able to use the restaurants in the next door Sandals so plenty of choice. Wonderful beach butlers, always remembered your favourite drink and the mimosas every morning were really a lovely touch. The rooms could do with a wee facelift but they do have a certain charm. I will definitively return.

Back to the Royal Plantation....again!

My wife and I were married on the pier at Sandals Royal Plantation (SRP) in 2012. After five years, we decided to go back ...and it was better than the first time!Whether Jerome is greeting you in the lobby with mimosas; or Cleon is attending to your needs on the beach; or Duane is capturing memories with his camera; or Dacia or Jason or ANY of the staff is around, they make you feel relaxed and completely content.One of the things we noted during our first stay was the attention to detail and overall cleanliness of the resort. While that still rings true, we found that the overall experience is heightened upon a revisit. Even though it had been five years, a few of the staff recognized us and made sure to tell us they remembered us! It's a wonderful feeling!If you're looking for a quiet, relaxed vacation with a CONSTANT incredible view, go to SRP. If you're looking for a vacation where you're treated like royalty from the time you step foot on the resort until the time you leave, go to SRP. If you're looking for a party-resort with thousands of people on it, still go to SRP, but take the 90 second shuttle to the neighboring resort, Ochi, and party down.....then come back to SRP for a quiet day of relaxation with zero disturbances. The butler service is just absolutely top notch. We were taken care of by Sheldon and Richard in 2012, who did an outstanding job of making sure our wedding day was stress free (yeah, a stress-free wedding day!). This time we were in the hands of Audell and Chadworth, who are both unique and equally impressive in their attention to detail. Although they have completely different personalities, they compliment eachother very nicely - and their communication and professionalism is off the charts! We had the Governor's General Suite while we were there this time (humblebrag). If you like relaxing in your room, treat yourself to a suite on the West Beach; that way you can sit outside or open the sliding glass doors at night and listen to the house band, Rush, play music on the terrace. After they're done...go hang out with them! They're awesome!We're looking forward to coming back and chatting it up with Arnold, the General Manager, about how great SRP makes us feel. Luckily we only have to wait a few more months! :) These are all real people who are there right now. It's a smaller resort, but it's much more elite than anything else we've experienced.From: J&J
