My husband and I visited Sandals Royal Plantation May 12-16. Amazing staff, amazing food and an over all good experience.We arrived home the evening of the 16th. On the 17th, I started getting sick. I went to the local emergency department and was treated for traveller's tummy and sent home with antibiotics, anti-diarrhea, and anti-nauseau medication. Two days later, an...

Went here for our honeymoon last year. The hotel is small but nice, the best thing about it is the food, totally different to other all inclusives. Having a butler is a nice touch, we're not particularly "needy" so we didn't have them running around for us, but the bubble baths and chocolates in the room on various days were...

This is a much smaller sandals hotel. It is all butler resort which it real terms means it is butler lite. Each butler looks after 8 couples which means they are over run. The bathrooms are a bit out dated but the rest of the hotel food and service (except in the verandah where they serve tea where the staff...

For our anniversary we went to Sandals Royal Plantation. It was our third time going to a Sandals resort, and we really enjoyed ourselves. This resort is a little more subdued than other Sandals resorts - and I say that as a positive thing. You can go back and forth easily to the larger Sandals Grande Rivera, which has a...

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon at RP on Monday June 2nd. It was a wonderful experience. Everything top notch. The food , as all the other reviews state is top notch. The grounds are just beautiful. Lots of lush trees and peacocks roaming around ( BEWARE THEY ARE LOUD IN THE MORNING-EARLY). We spent 2...

gorgeous setting and relatively small (much nicer than next door Sandals), but friendly staff and good service ( I especially liked being called My Lady!). the only negative was the long transfer from Kingston airport.

We just returned from our honeymoon at Sandals Royal Plantation. The resort is beautiful and well kept and the staff is tremendously friendly and helpful. When you get to the airport you will be escorted directly into the Sandals lounge where you can relax and have any drink you want. Our wait was only about 10 minutes before we were...

My wife and I enjoyed every second of our honeymoon here at the Sandals Royal Plantation! From the moment we got off the airplane, Sandals has a very nice lounge area for you to wait in until the bus arrives(which was maybe 30 minutes). It took probably 2 hours on the bus to arrive and the hotel. Everyone there is...

We have just returned from the vacation of a lifetime at the Sandals Royal Plantation. My daughter and her new husband had picked this gem of a resort for a destination wedding that was fit for a King and Queen. I have been to other "super clubs" but the Royal Plantation has set a new bar of excellence. The staff...

I'm glad we stayed here in the end! It boiled down between the Ocho Rios resort or the one in Montego Bay and it's safe to say, we picked the right one. I went with my wife and 2 kids and it was something for everyone to enjoy. I am definitely one for adventure and wanted to explore as soon...
