This year we spent a glorious 15 nights at SRP over the holiday Christmas and New year season and every day was like a dream. The service was impeccable and every meal was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at the Beach Grill which we don't usually do as well as the meals on The Terrace. Our favorite is the French...

This is our 3rd trip to SRP and it was just phenomenal!! We really love the small, personal feel of the resort and the quality of the people, food & service! Yes, the resort needs an update, but we'd rather have an older, charming resort with superb service, excellent food and amazing people! All the resort employees are top notch,...

My husband and I booked this trip last minute to escape for the holidays. The Royal Plantation is small but has the perk of reciprocal privileges next door. Our butlers were Robert and Kadesha. They were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us. We booked a trip to Dolphin Cove and a half day deep sea fishing though the hotel....

We just came back from a week at the Royal Plantation. This was our second Sandals vacation. The accommodations are are showing some wear & tear. The hot water was an issue at the beginning but after talking to Frank he sorted it out ASAP. The biggest ex problem was trying to figure out what exactly does the Butler do...

Fantastic vacation. My wife and I honeymooned at Royal Plantation for a week. Staying here had all the romance of a honeymoon, all the service you would expect of a top notch resort, and all the warmth of staying at Grandmas. We immediately felt at home, welcomed, and pampered. Service and attitude is where this place shines. All the staff...

This was our 7th Sandals stay and the 2nd time to Ocho Rio. This time we enjoyed Ocho RIo, because of the wonderful staff at SRP. The rooms are tired and in need of some updating, really not a big deal for us as we didn't spend a lot of time in it. I was told that renovations will be...

So wonderful to "return home" for our retreat, restore and revitalize time. Mr Nugent and his team have once again gone above and beyond to make our stay special. Can hardly wait until next year to see all of the changes that the renovations will bring.

Royal Plantation proved to be a relaxing and beautiful vacation. Every room category comes with butler service and there are beach butlers as well. I was even chastised (in jest) for attempting to order my own beverage from the bar. The staff here are extremely attentive to every need. There is a French restaurant upstairs, a beach/deck seafood restaurant (on...

This is the third Sandals resort we have stayed (we stayed at Emerald Bay and St Lucia Halcyon). As always, the service is really top notch for a luxury resort. Our Butler Robert and Kadesha is awesome! Compared to other Sandals, this resort is significantly smaller. There are pros and cons at the smaller resort. Pros are close proximity to...

We stayed at Royal Plantation for 7 nights in room 311. We have been to several other Sandals resorts. This had the best food and the service was amazing! Check in was quick and painless. Your butler is waiting for you when you arrive. Our room was clean and perfectly sized with a walk in closet. The air conditioning worked...
