Our second time here and it just reaffirmed how much we love this place. It's not super upscale. It's not big. It's not a party resort. It is about quiet, and beauty, great food, and incredible people who make you feel as if you are home and safe. Yes, the bathrooms are dated. But they are clean and comfortable. And,...

Wow, this truly was the best vacation I have been on. Royal Planation is a 1 of a kind experience. The resort is quiet, quaint and relaxing. The staff are what truly make this place exceptional, we arrived as guests and left as family. We were lucky enough to have the best Butlers Marvin and Oren, who both went above...

If you read trip advisor reviews of this hotel I think The Royal Plantation delivers exactly what is promised. The Good.... well everything really.

We had an excellent time. The resort is top notch and the staff are unbelievable. I've never had better service anywhere and that includes a number of other Sandals resorts we've stayed at where the service was also excellent. We've already booked our return trip for 2018.

Our stay at Royal Plantation was nothing short of fantastic! We had an amazing experience from the champagne greeting to the hugs at departure. Your staff does an awesome job of meeting every request with a smile and "no problem man". We love your resort and will definitely return in the near future. Thank you for such a magical anniversary.

We stayed Feb. 18-25, 2017. This is the most beautiful resort, with all rooms facing the clear blue carribean waters. I must tell you about the great staff (family) as soon as we arrived we were greeted, "Welcome Home". Management (Frank & Marvin) and staff, always asked if things were good and if we needed anything. Always attentive to every...

We've been going to Sandals since 2005 and love it, however this resort takes Sandals to a new level. It's small, it's boutiquie, it only has 3 restaurants but my god the location, the food and most importantly the service levels were the best we've experienced so far. So any down sides, well maybe and lets get them out the...

The setup is awesome with all ocean facing rooms and just 74 rooms total. It's quest, private, and maintained extremely well. There is plenty to do and if you want more to do, Sandals Ochi is right next door. The most amazing part about this resort, the staff! Second to none when it came to service, and most important, they...

We stayed at the Royal Plantation Feb. 13 - 20, 2017. We were "wowed" from the moment we arrived! The resort is beautiful and has an elegant feel to it. The rooms are a bit dated, but we like the overall feel & we did have a few issues with the hot water which were quickly resolved. If there is...
