Cleon was very attentive on the beach. The spa was worth the money as the staff were fantastic. Overall food was about a 4 star....it was good...

An excellent small hotel and this was our third visit. The food is very good and has improved since last year but some menus (the Grill) need new choices. Overall the staff are great and very friendly. Individual service from our butlers (Gladstone and Sean) was excellent with the in-room diner being very special. Some of the entertainment over the...

We've been to Jamaica many times over the past 40 years and we've stayed at numerous Sandals. We believe they do the best job of delivering a great guest experience every time. We recently spent 7 days at RP and were not disappointed. It's a small property with two small beaches and a small pool. That being said, the quaintness...

My wife and I were fortunate to spend 3 weeks here. If you want loud music, beach volleyball, pool aerobics, baseball matches on the beach etc. DON'T GO THERE.. If you want tranquillity, good food, a nice safe beach, wonderful friendly staff and good service, it's for you. Some travellers like to mention a particular member of staff - not...

First time in Jamaica, first time at Sandals! We will be back. I cannot begin to describe the impeccable service at the Royal Plantation.

Gorgeous upscale small resort, staff very friendly and helpful!! Food is very good! Based on past trips to other resorts was not expecting food to be good quality but it is. Beach is beautiful. There is an older crowd here which is fine with me but if you are looking for a party this will not be the place for...

Fantastic staff, great food what more can you want. Yes the rooms are dated especially the bathrooms but they are in the process of updating them. They have added more chairs, umbrellas and hammocks over the water. Cleon and Daniello at the beach take great care of you. Larkland is at the grill and the terrace and he is always...
