January vacation Ocho Rios

melissamD23SU on Feb 04, 2023

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Plantation a few weeks ago and had a great time. Our butlers were Duwainey and Richard and they were great and checked in with us throughout the day by just spotting us on the beach or seeing us when eating to make sure everything was going ok. They would also bring us drink or food surprises on the beach or leave something in our room. Everyone at the resort was so kind and always said hello/asked how your day is going. The entertainment of Yashawn, Nitaki, and Demar was also a fun time with piano sing along, karaoke, and activities throughout the day! By the way Nitaki, my daughter Ava loved the tie-dye shirt you made for her! The resort was very relaxing which is what we wanted and beautiful. Thanks for a great vacation!! Can't wait to go back another time. Melissa and Dave B.

Excellent Service!

Just spent 10 days at the Plantation resort and have to say that I was extremely impressed with the level of service and friendliness showed by all the staff. From the garden staff all the way to the management level there was a friendly "good morning" or "hello" from all. Never had to wait long for a drink (Thanks Tressell) or food or indeed any other request. With respect to the food, that was probably the only disappointment or sub par that we experienced. It was very much hit and miss as to the quality of the food with the French Restaurant being the big "Hit". Another "Hit" was SOY. Great food and even better service from our waitress, Santay!!!! Most of the other dinner venues were just average. One of the most consistent for great service and quality of food was the Terrace. Breakfast and lunches were great. Shout out to another great waitress Diana! The pool and beach were clean and really well maintained as were the grounds in general. It is an older resort so yes, it does look a little more tired than most other Sandals locations. however, it was what we had expected. Finally, this was our first time using a butler so didn't quite know what to expect. Big thanks to Duayne and Richard for all their amazing attention and friendship. Jamaica certainly knows how to treat its tourists!

We stayed here for 2 weeks & had a fantastic time despite my wife having a fall & breaking her wrist.The staff are all fabulous without exception I never saw a miserable face on any of them,they were always willing to help The only downside to the holiday was the very tired room with a cracked sink & toilet bowl also the plumbing left a lot to be desired but the positives outshone the negatives hence my 5 star rating. THANK you Sandals Royal Plantation for a great experience .

Winter getaway

rangitsch (Missoula, Montana) on Jan 31, 2023

We love the quiet & relaxed atmosphere. Overall the food was good, but the Wobbly Peacock pub could use some improvement. Bring back some of the traditional pub meals that had been served in years past. The service was good and our butler's were very attentive.
