Too long away from this great place

stuartb561 (Phoenix, Arizona) on Jun 14, 2021

Felt like coming home after being gone too long! Our last stay was just before the Covid-19 shutdowns of 2020. We were leaving as the first cruise ship was being turned away. Ugh! We knew we were home when we saw Gladstone’s eyes smiling in spite of his mask. Every butler we have had the privilege to meet was superlative. Gladstone is always the most professional, friendly and hard-working! Sherryl was excellent as well. One of the best parts of the Royal Plantation is the best staff of any Sandals. Our dives were simply amazing. All the dive masters are great. Winston, often the boat captain as well, is one of the friendliest and welcome dive masters. We always try to get a private dive with Winston. Mike has the most hustle of the dive staff. We owe might a big thanks for shuttling use to the dive boat daily. Mike’s energy is boundless. We also had an excellent private dive with Mike. I made my 200th dive at night with Londale. Very enjoyable! Including the shooting star that we watched explode as we waited on the last diver to enter the water. The whole team is great! Even with the Covid situation, the entire stay was outstanding! Stephanie, Tina and Barbara desire special mention for their persistent hospitality! Can’t wait for the next trip to our favorite small, secluded beachside resort!

A Yah So Nice!

Nicole D (Kingston, Jamaica) on Jun 13, 2021

Excellent resort with exceptional service. I indeed love a staycation, so I've pretty much stayed at 80% of the resorts across the island over the last 20 years including several Sandals and Beaches resorts so I'll compare other brands as well as the Sandals brand. Over the past few years I've been also keen on trying out butler or level upgrades. My experience started when I first made a call to reservations, the Rep was absolutely patient, gracious and quite keen on ensuring I got exactly what I needed as a customer. Including pointing out to me that I have reward points that can be used. When we got to resort, check in was absolutely awesome as there was nothing to do as I had checked in online but still expected some additional paperwork but nope, I was seated and given a glass of champagne then once I finished having it, I was asked to follow a Rep for a mini tour which was personalized and ended at my room. Lovely touch. Within 5 mins my luggage arrived to my room and my butler advised he had made dinner reservations for us for the night and asked if we had any preferences for other nights which he made. Mind you, we changed these quite a few times and he graciously made ever change. Our butlers, Chase and Neil were absolutely fantastic. Butler service was as described and as good as that offered by Hyatt, my gold standard for butler service on the island. We had a quick cocktail and finger food at the Wobbly Peacock where Euton and Granston engaged us in delightful light conversation and served up some amazing cocktail. Good brands of liquor, far better than your usual resort liquor. Dinner at the terrace was quite lovely, limited but absolutely well done options for dining. Nightly entertainment was short, 30 minutes but quite interesting and good. Frankly enough for me as we are into a more quieter vibe and slower pace. The resort meets that expectation through and through. A mature clientele was observed. We went across to Ocho Rios twice to go restaurants and utilize the basket ball court. A very different experience which lacking in comparison. The difference in service level was extremely apparent. The food at Ochie was ok but far from the quality we had at Royal Plantation. In general this experience was better than other Sandals and Beaches experience with Beaches Ocho Rios being the runner up. Breakfast at Royal Plantation was excellent and devine with a limited buffet option but good a la carte options. Technically well executed and very tasty. The servers again were superb, every single one of them. The pool was small but more than adequate as it was usually empty or had just a person or two. The beach was the same. Small but adequate and fun. Water sports and the team that manned it was absolutely a blast and these guys make a big effort to ensure your full satisfaction. We tried just about every in water sports and enjoyed it all. Beach butlers also make it easy for you to spend the entire day as they keep the drinks coming and food if you want it. Our photographer was just absolutely great and got us some great shots that we purchased when we were leaving. In comparison I'd say as good as Hyatt if not better. Better than Couples which I believe is next in line. I'd also advise to skip on Royalton. All in all an absolutely great place. The butlers also did special surprises such as scented bubble baths with rose petals. Sparkling wine on ice. You name it. All in all it was definitely a very memorable experience with delightful service from the Gardener to Housekeeper!
