Excellent resort, great food and high quality service. All inclusive including Californian wines and premium spirits. Butlers provide additional services but despite a no tip policy the Butlers have to be tipped. Golf included and course is just a 10minute ride using the complimentary buses. The course is OK and you have to have a caddy which is a minimal charge. Buggies are extra but you can walk.

The other Sandals resorts can be used but the Royal Plantation is for guests only. The night club (rabbit hole) in the sandals resort next to the Royal Plantation is worth a visit.

This hotel is the best Sandals, if not the best hotel period, on the entire island of Jamaica. The service was top notch, the food was to die for, and the view from our suite was absolutely amazing. I can't say enough about this hotel. This is one of the best all-inclusive establishment I've ever stayed in. You WILL NOT go wrong with this choice. Thank you Royal Plantation for your hospitality and a very relaxing time.

We were worried pre holiday given the Caribbean weather but luckily Jamaica hasn't been affected by the hurricane season. Arrived at the hotel and were greeted were greeted by fantastic staff. That was 11 days ago. On the beach for our last day today and the experience has only got better. Attentive staff, great butlers (Adrian and Ash), food has far exceeded expectation and the cocktails on the beach........ will defo return to this great location. Frank, the manager oversees everything in a very hands on way and everyone from the drivers to the waiters work hard to ensure a great time had by all. Our 30th wedding anniversary couldn't have been better!!

We got the joy of spending our honeymoon at Royal Plantation. We loved everything about this resort. The exceptional service, fancy room, amazing food/drinks, spa, soft white sand on the beach, and the relaxation. The butler service is spectacular-Neil you are the best! They will book all dinner reservations for you (there is no limit to the number of reservations like other all inclusives). The neighboring resort is much bigger (and louder) and houses many but not all of the restaurants. For safety and ability to find the restaurants your butler kindly escorts you to each dinner for your convenience. The food at both resorts is untouchable in taste and quality.

There is a east and west side beach with wait staff on both sides for unlimited food and drinks. All staff on the beach are very attentive and pay attention to your beverage and food choices for future days. East side of the beach offers paddle boarding, kayaking, glass bottom boat rides, snorkeling, sailing, so many fun activities to meet every persons taste. The water in Jamaica was the warmest ocean water my husband and I have ever felt. Yet very refreshing to lay in the hammocks over the water or in their stationary waterfloaties available.

We had a ocean view suite that was stocked everyday with wine, champagne, beer, water, juices, pop and awesome Jamaican coffee for each morning. Our maid Maryln kept our room spotless all week and she was incredibly friendly.

Royal Plantation has the best service and staff I have encountered at any resort. They truly do their best so you do not have to lift a finger throughout your entire vacation with them. They are exceptional and we enjoyed getting to know many of them throughout our trip. We booked our trip back already and will likely be Royal Plantation Guests forever.

We love the resort and the people who work here. If you want to get away from the world and really relax, this is the place for you. The resort is beautiful, the rooms all have ocean views, but the staff truly set this place apart. Happy people who welcome us home and are grateful to have you there. The food is exceptional and you can find most anything you want to eat or drink. With personal butlers and beach butlers, you will not want for much. The bartenders are very capable, and there is a large selection of liquor to chose from and a wet bar in every room. Beach staff are very friendly and there are plenty of activities to do at the resort. The spa is very nice, has lots of amenities and has very capable masseuse. After dinner go to the Wobbly Peacock pub and have Junior make you drink while Akeem and Jason entertain you with music and dancing.

Special thanks for this trip go out to Arnold Nugent the GM, for keeping Royal Plantation the haven from reality we love so much. Thank you to our butler Olivia Barrett for outstanding service as usual. Hushane at Le Papillon for the exquisite dining experiences. Jason and Akeem, thank you for keeping us laughing and clapping in the pub, you guys are great. Adrian Campbell and Cleon, thanks for exceptional service on the beach. Marva in the spa, wow, just wow on the message.

A few items of note: There is a military discount for active duty and veterans so ask about it. Make sure you sign up for SSG to get credit for your stay, even if you aren't sure you will be back. Reserve your next trip while on property to get more discounts and a spa credit, well worth it. A little money down on the next stay goes a long way later. Dacia Stewart will take care of you there, she can work magic! Don't be afraid to ask your Butlers for things, no is not something they like to say. The more you come back the better it gets.

See you next year Royal Plantation family. Thank you and much love!

Room Tip: West side rooms are a little quieter and away from the street and there is an elevator on that side.
