We stayed here for a short trip on one of those last minute deals. We wanted to check this resort out along with Sandals Grand Riviera next door. We wanted to try out a different Sandals than our usual one and see what we thought. This resort is small at 72 rooms which makes getting around very nice and you...

My fiancé and I came for a wedding at Beaches, but that was not an option. This is the first review I have ever written, but I think I am going to start writing them more often. I would say we stay at higher end hotels and enjoy the finer things in life. I guess I should say, I know...

This was my second visit to Sandals properly (Beaches on Turkes was the other). The Royal Plantation was everything we could have asked for. I booked the basic room and was upgraded to a suite on the 2nd floor on the West wing (I think, non-smoking beach side). The Fantastic(s): -The Staff. Our Butlers Hector and Sherril were absolutely amazing...

We are a much traveled couple and have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world. We have been to the Royal Plantation on four previous occasions and have always considered it special. In May we returned after a break of seven years and, on this occasion, everything was far, far beyond our expectations. In the last few...

Yes, Sandals Royal Plantation is just as good as everyone says. The rooms are nice and the food is great. The beach is small but comfortable. But the people there are remarkable. Reviews often name drop people like Adrian who are highly visible and extremely popular with guests. I think the thing that other reviews don't adequately convey is the...

We celebrated on 25th anniversary at SRP about 6 weeks ago and we had a wonderful time. My husband was a little concerned about the size of the resort, small beach, etc. but after only a day he realized that his fears were unfounded. We enjoyed the small, intimate atmosphere of SRP and the beach was very nice. The beach...

Over the past twenty years we've visited many of the Sandals resorts throughout the Caribbean. We have had so many wonderful vacations at these resorts and always feel incredibly relaxed and rejuvenated when we have to head back home.
