    This was our first experience with both Sandals and this property specifically and we loved it! The airport pickup process was orderly and we had a comfortable place to linger for our brief wait. We were greeted at check-in with a glass of bubbly by our butler, Marvin. We were swept swiftly to our room where Marvin showed us the process for contacting him and our other butler, Oren. We were in shorts and swimsuits in no time! The service was outstanding. The Jamaicans are lovely people and a delight to be around. All rooms have beach views, so there's nothing to complain about when it comes to the view. Oren and Marvin provided the best service....attentive but not overbearing. We will ask for them the next time we visit. The food ranged from very, very good to sometimes mediocre, but that was rare. There was plenty of variety of food and restaurants. We had one rainy day which we spent in the well-appointed gym, and then sipping cocktails on the veranda, reading and playing games. It was a terrific seven days and we will definitely be back!

    As usual our 6th stay at Royal Plantation was wonderful. Butlers Richard and Hector were at the top of their game as usual. Beach butlers were great. Was a little disappointed with Pappion as it took 3 hours for dinner, however the meal was great. Michael at the Terrace had it running like a clock. And Dacia and her staff were superb.

    8 days in paradise

    Great service, awesome food and the best staff ever making sure every one of your needs are met!!!!! So much to see and do or just sit on the beach and have your drinks delivered to you. You can also go over to Sandals Ochi Beach Resort on the shuttle.....restaurants and activities available there too. Everyone that works at RP is friendly and professional. We have been there many times and consider them our Jamaica family.

    Unforgettable Honeymoon

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sandals Royal Plantation. The cloth with lemongrass was definitely a great way to introduce us to the resort. The butler service was absolutely amazing. Richard and Hector catered to our every need and made sure that our honeymoon was unforgettable. Barbara, Brittany, and the breakfast staff were very delightful. Garth the spa staff made everything simple and pleasant with our couples massage. We liked staying at Royal Plantation because it was quiet and we could visit the Ochi resort any time that we wanted to. It provided many other options for dinner and entertainment. The drinks and specialty cocktails were delicious and the Jerk burger is a must have. Royal Plantation is the smaller and quiet side. We were there 6 days and each day was better than the last. We would definitely recommend staying @ Royal Plantation because it was more cost effective to get a quiet vacation and visit the other side as much as we wanted. There is no vacation like a Sandals vacation. We will be back.

    Went in early November 2019. Wanted to take a bit to reflect as our experience was just ok. Resort Grounds- well maintained First Impression- Grand Room- in need of updating-not time period, just finishes Room View- AMAZING Butler 1- good(with exception of anniversary dinner restaurant being changed without telling until dinner that night) Butler 2- ok Food/restaurant-sub-par. Really disappointed on this one. If you are an old country buffet person, you’ll LOVE this place. It’s not all buffet style, but definitely cooked that way. Filet Was not edible. Our best meal was had at the Jerk Shack at neighboring resort. Actually walked out of one restaurant due to not being served(server could not multitask) took over 2 hours to get our entree and then after eating waitress a half hour and no follow up for desert or drinks nothing. Activities-tried to set activities up multiple times to be told requested activities were not available. One recommendation- see if your activity is available at other resort- we found you could do pretty much anything there every day of the week-butler never told us that we found out the last day we were there. Nightly Entertainment- was like they looked for volunteers during the day to perform at night. Left almost every night due to being so bad. Bar/wobbly peacock/bartenders- highlight. Personable, entertaining.
