My wife and I just returned from Sandals Royal Plantation, where we had a run-of-the-mill trip. My wife, having just returned home from her deployment to Afghanistan, and I was wanting a vacation that provided for intimacy, fun, good food, clean beaches, and an attentive staff. Having stayed at the Iberstar Grand Hotel Bavaro, DR, we considered the Iberostar Grand...

We just returned from our 2nd visit to Royal Plantation and it was wonderful. The secret of this resort is obviously getting out as it was fully booked during our stay. The required the staff to be much busier than last time, but they still found time to make you feel at home and relaxed. We so many staff from...

This is a special property. Elegant, small and intimate. Very much a plantation style mansion. Beautiful grounds. Excellent and attentive staff. Comfortable and well appointed rooms. The food and service were very good. Two neat but small beaches. Pool is very small. Wood beach lounge chairs are "period" but heavy and impractical. Spa small but services excellent. Butlers a plus....

Just got back from a wonderful vacation at Sandals Royal Plantation. Everything was wonderful! We met many great people, enjoyed the best food you could ever want and had so much fun. The White Party was unbelievable. Our butlers, Richard, Sheldon and Oratio all made sure that we wanted for nothing. They drew baths, filled our drink cooler with all...

Myself and my wife went here looking for a relaxing week away. Our first vacation together in years. We are both very busy and were looking for a do-nothing week away. That's exactly what we got! People write about everything. But the best thing about the whole experience is that after you pass through Jamaican Customs you are literally taken...

My wife and I just flew home on Saturday, 19th of April from our first trip to Sandals and Jamaica. The Royal Plantation is amazing. The resort, the staff, the food, the beach, the pub and the butlers were the ultimate in luxury. To start, the resort is smaller than most, only 74 suites, all butler service. From the minute...
