Non-Jamaican Jamaican Resort

Passport295392 on Aug 08, 2022

Nah mon! I want to preface my review by saying that the service is top tier. Sandals trains its staff to be polite, warm and highly customer service based. The service was top-tier and did not disappoint (thank you Bebeito and Ash). However, the property and business model need help and leave much to be desired. I traveled to Royal Plantation with my significant other to enjoy a beautiful beach getaway which we hoped would include superb quarters and delicious LOCAL cuisine. Mind you, we travel quite a bit and have stayed at 5+ star resorts (Eden Roc, Four Seasons, etc.) so we expected the same exceptional quality booking this property. First things first, the room was extremely dated - it reminded me of hotel rooms from the 80s (the likelihood that it had not been renovated since the 80s is high IMO), it was worn down and OLD. I could go on about the details but in short, the room was crusty and dusty! Turn down service was always timely but noone wants those silly towel swans or glitter messages on their bed as the era of Royal Caribbean vacations being a thing is over (one night I threw away the letters and got reprimanded for that as they recycle them). Secondly, the cuisine was terrible. They do not actually serve Jamaican food, they have themed nights - Italian Night, French Night.. if we wanted that type food we would have traveled to Italy or France. To add insult to injury, the theme nights tasted like bland buffet food and the drinks were watered down (FYI, they supply any liquor you want in your room but we were pretty certain it was 15%-20% watered down). After lots of complaining about the lack of Jamaican food, the staff was able to set us up with local food that was sourced outside of the resort (again, a nod to the great service). I understand that they want to cater to their main clientele (mid-late aged midwestern folks who probably have not had exposure to an array of international cuisine ) however it is a great opportunity to highlight local Jamaican food and educate and broaden the guests palette. Mr. Stewart please take heed of my review and reevaluate your business model for this property, Jamaican is a beautiful island with much to be discovered and a bounty of delicious food and Royal Plantation does not do it any justice. We left extremely disappointed and it was not worth the money we spent.

Another spectacular anniversary!

shannoneV2438OJ on Aug 06, 2022

Sandals Royal Plantation is our happy place! This was our 5th trip to RP and we are already booked to come back next year. We absolutely love the atmosphere here, romantic and relaxing. We enjoy being able to head over to Ochi for more dining options or the pools. It is like the best of both worlds. Our butlers, Audell and Chadworth, are the BEST. We've had the pleasure of their company for several years now and they truly make our time special and unique each visit. We usually stay on the East Beach side but this trip our room was on the West Beach side. Our view was amazing, lush and tropical greenery with the ocean in the background. Our room was comfortable and clean, the AC took some getting used to but once we found the right temp for us it was smooth sailing. The closet was huge! The bathroom was clean and we never ran out of towels. My only complaint there would be that your bathroom window and door were to the outside walkway between rooms and you could hear every sound and every conversation so it did not feel very private. Otherwise, the room was everything we needed it to be. The beach was clean and I loved that they added more floats to both east and west sides. We were able to find a spot each day even if we had to come down and drop off our bag before breakfast. We enjoyed the snorkeling trip and the Water Sports staff were super friendly! The Beach Butlers Adrian, Daniello and Trevardo are spectacular. There just aren't enough ways to express how much joy they bring to our days. The staff just makes every day special. Barbara, Nastia, Luke and Nicholas at the Terrace made each morning just perfect. Uton at the Wobbly Peacock makes the best drink ever, the best Superman I've ever had! Abigail and Georgia in travel were so helpful in getting us set up for our next Sandals adventure! Thanks to Rhona at the Red Lane Spa for pampering my husband on our anniversary. We have discussed trying other resorts or other Sandals properties but we just love our visits to Royal Plantation so much. I tell my husband he hit it out of the park when he found it while researching where to go for our 10th anniversary. We are already counting the days until we go back next summer!
