    A group of 6 of us spent a lovely week here, it's everything the past 10 reviews have said but must mention Orayne and Ricardo - our butlers, Daniello at the beach bar who kept us hydrated and entertained, the guys who kindly organised volleyball. It's definitely the staff who make this place an awesome hotel to stay at.

    Sandals Royal Plantation in Jamaica ???? is by far the best resort in the Sandals chain. We have previously stayed at Negril, Antigua, Exuma Bahamas (also fabulous) and just last month, Royal Plantation, Jamaica! This little gem ?? is fabulous. The resort only has around 70 rooms, so you never see that many people at one time. We were strolling along the beach front late in the afternoon or evening and never ran into another guest! When we sat out on the edge of the dock to gaze at the stars before or after dinner we were the only ones out there. Total peace & quiet. Heaven! The staff at Royal Plantation are on another level. They are SO professional and sweet and helpful. Our great butlers were Oraine & Ricardo. We received top shelf personal service from both of these fine men from the moment we stepped onto the property until the moment we left. I was feeling sea sick one day after scuba diving in big waves so Oraine had the chef prepare a chicken broth with some local vegetables in it (Oraine’s mother’s secret recipe) and he brought it to me on the beach ?? to make me feel better. And it worked!! I was, as Oraine put it, “bouncy in no time”! And one rainy evening my husband and I were going to take the shuttle over to Ochi to dine at the sushi restaurant but decided to stay at Plantation to avoid the rain, so no sushi for him (or so we thought). As we were sitting in the dinning room at Royal Plantation ordering our dinner, our butler Ricardo placed the most beautiful platter of sushi on our table that he had gone and retrieved for us from the resort next door without us even asking! Excellent service! On another day, I shared a cocktail recipe with Robert the Bar Manager for a spicy jalapeño margarita with fresh grapefruit juice. The next afternoon, I was laying on the beach and all of a sudden the beach staff brought me my favourite cocktail that Robert made especially for me! He had gone and sourced all the ingredients himself and every afternoon my favourite cocktail would manically appear! And Mark the chef is out of this world. We sent our compliments to him via our waitress and then he was kind enough to appear at our table and introduce himself! My husband & I scuba dived each day and one morning the dive was cancelled. But our butler Ricardo worked with the dive shop at Ochi & arranged a PRIVATE dive on their big dive boat for just the 2 of us that afternoon free of charge. The captain & master diver Nima took us out and we had the most fun dive of the entire trip! The food is 5 star ?? but the staff are 10 star and the beach is beautiful & private. No beach vendors. Royal Plantation is paradise. We booked our next trip to return while we were still at the resort!!! And don’t miss “High Tea” every afternoon at 4pm with an ocean view!

    Paradise

    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.
