Accommodation and food were excellent but the most impressive aspect of the hotel was the staff. Without exception they were all helpful and genuinely friendly. They made our holiday very special. Sandals should be proud of them.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Great all around - rooms, food, service. Very relaxing. And the Sandals Ochi resort is right next door which gives you additional food options and a more trendy and exciting atmosphere. We would hop over to Ochi to 'party' and they retire back to Plantation to relax.

The GOOD: beautiful grounds, beaches and terraced lounge areas. Good food and service in the French restaraunt., nice spa, great blue mountain coffee! The BAD: poor food everywhere else, very dated rooms/bathrooms, wildly varied service (from amazing to terrible), avg quality liquor, terrible and repetetive entertainment, luck of the draw with your butler selection (which can make a huge difference),...

This was our second Sandals vacation to Jamaica; the first was to the Negril resort. By comparison, our experience at Royal Plantation was far inferior. One of the big draws of Sandals is the all-inclusive experience. For us it took a lot of the worry about tipping out of the equation and just added that into the cost of the...

Ash and Adrian, our butlers were amazing. Especially Adrian. We also very much enjoyed Adrian at the beach bar restaurant. He is so personable. All of the beach bar servers were extremely attentive and personable as well.

Sandal’s Royal Plantation hit the mark in every way! This was our third visit to our “Jamaican home”! Wow! The general manager Arnold Nugent has made quality changes since we were there last year. Arnold has vision and creativity, and in time, SPRP will be a showcase resort. Mario, Food and Beverage manager is everywhere, helping to serve, checking on...

This was our first visit to a Sandals resort and our best vacation ever. My wife and I visited from 4/4 through 4/10/17. The resort WAY exceeded our expectations. The difference is the people who work at Royal Plantation. They simply made us feel like we were royalty. We made a list of all the names of the people at...

All of the Sandals resorts have the wow factor but the Royal Plantation is the most unique. It is the smallest of their properties with just 77 suites, so there are only around 150 people staying at any one time. This allows their incredible staff to devote far more time to get to know every guest and their individual likes...
