    A long needed get away

    My wife and I needed to get away for our anniversary. After looking over the options Royal Plantation seemed to be a good fit. I picked up some snorkel gear in the States (Seaview 180 was really nice). If you want to be amazed - pick up some of your own gear. Another point of "before you start" is to get a membership to club Mobay when they offer it. This gets you thru the lines quickly at the airport! Royal Plantation was amazing! From our initial introduction at the resort, throughout the whole week everything and everyone were thoughtful, professional and concerned about our unwinding. Our butlers Robert and Kedesha made sure that our trip was without incident and to our best expectation. We could have asked for more, but were not acquainted with this level of luxury. (hint - next time we will ask them to bring up more native Jamaican food). All of the restaurants were good! In addition, there is the Sandal's complex next door and next time around we will go there for a few meals. Beyond meals, Kedesha and Robert did a lot of little extras. On our anniversary Kedesha made the room nice! Thanks! Anything we wanted they would bring us. My wife and i donned the snorkel masks the first day and snorkeling became a daily tradition. While you could see a beautiful cove, under that cove was an aquarium. The first time we snorkeled in the swimming area we saw so may unique and beautiful fish and sea life.. right there! From Caribbean coral squid to flying fish to Conch to star fish and the blue, yellow, striped - you name it - fish along the piers - it was like you were swimming in an aquarium. I had the opportunity to take the PADI explore class. Michael did a great job teaching me and making that first dive experience amazing. With a little bit of effort, i was open water certified by the end of the week. If you have ever wanted to dive and see what that was like, look up Michael at Royal Plantation to do the intro. I also wanted to sail on the hobie cat wave boats that were available. It had been a while, but the staff was right there to help. When i flipped it, they rescue boat was with me in a few minutes. After that Orlando took me out and taught me the finer points. That was a lot of fun! In the evening, there was typically a jazz interlude. It helped unwind to have a pina colada and take in the evening airs. I can't say enough of how good this sanctuary was! If we are able to get out again, this will be the place we go. It was not crowded. We didn't have hand bands because the staff knew who we were. It was intimate and formal when you wanted it to be and relaxed when you wanted it to be.

    Our stay was fantastic as always. We are never disappointed with "SRP". Still the best vacation ever. Top to bottom, Mr. Nugent and his entire staff make this such a special place. If feeling special, quality, attention to detail, and relaxation are important, SRP has nailed it. If you want a "spring break" atmosphere, this is not it. Please try a different Sandals property.

    As wonderful as always!!

    We spent the week of 4/24/21 at Sandals Royal Plantation. We've stayed here many times and always feel like family when we return. The service is exceptional and the staff is so friendly and we've gotten to know them since they've been there since we started going to this resort years ago. Our room butlers, Ricardo & Orange (spelling?) were fantastic as well as the beach butler, Adrien (Bigs), Dinello and Romaine. Food was excellent and this resort keeps us coming back year after year!!! Next trip 4/23/22!!!

    We just spent 7 days at the Royal Plantation and service was outstanding our Butlers Ricardo and Orayne are awesome. No issues on this property small and excellent beach. Scuba diving was awesome too Mike from the dive shop is awesome. The only issue right now is the stupid Covid restrictions and being able to go over to the Ochi side for dinner easily. Rebooked for next April

    Such a special place...

    This boutique style Sandals property is such a special place. Tucked away next to the much larger sister property next door Sandals Ochi, you have all the quietness of Royal Plantation with reciprocal privileges with Ochi. This property is so peaceful, so serine with peacocks walking around the gardens like they own it! Special request for dining? No problem just tell your travel advisor at least 24 hours in advance and if ingredients are available on island they can whip up your special, non menu item meal. Another older property that has basin well maintained. Highly recommend
