We visited this property from 4/11-4/15 after having a great time using a day pass at Sandals in Grenada. This property is very nice, but not on par with it's sister property. The food was good but nothing special, the service was spotty at times, and the staff had a really hard time delivering what you ordered. Every time we...

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.

Just returned from a fabulous vacation at Sandals Royal Plantation. We celebrated our 20th anniversary and It exceeded our expectations. All the staff were incredible. Everyone from the gardners to the security staff were top notch. Special thanks to Kadesha and Robert, our room butlers for making our day special. The food was the best we've had at an all...

Excellent service, food, and room. Our butler, Adrian, was superb and went far beyond expectations! Our only suggestion is to have a sushi bar/restaurant at Sandals Royal Plantation. The staff at Royal Plantation were polite, helpful and a pleasure. The nightly entertainment was very well done.

Property is great. Service could be better. Missed breakfast one day due to order not being turned in on time. Usually had to wait for service in the bar unless you go get your drink from the bar. Tip, do not sit at the tables.

This quiet, classic property continues to improve and thrive under Arnold Nugent's direction and with his steady vision. Superb staff (many long time at the Royal Plantation), great ambiance, can't wait to return.

We just visited Royal Plantation last week. This resort is very small and quaint. If you are looking for a party it is next door at Ochi. We prefer the quite and low key so it was perfect for us. We had a 3rd floor basic room. They all have an ocean view. There is not elevator so get used...

I have so many things to say about the Sandal Royal Plantation... I don't know where to start. I have never felt so totally relaxed and carefree on a vacation before, and I really really needed it. My husband booked this resort as a surprise honeymoon for us and man, did he score some bonus points with this one. (Generally,...

Got to admit, this place has a lot of good reviews. So what am I missing? This was our first trip to an "all inclusive resort but the concept was not new to us. We've done river cursing in Europe and so know the idea of all you can eat, drink and deal with the $ as part of the...

We fell in love with Royal Plantation during our first visit several years ago and for a variety of reasons we did not make it back until last month. We were a little concerned that our experience would not measure up to our lofty recollections, but such was not the case. This experience was even better than the last. The...
