I am writing in relation to Mr Carmichael Elleston whom is part of Vanguard Security Ltd whom works at the entrance to the Sandals Royal Plantation site. On Thursday 12 January I lost my phone in a taxi and Mr Elleston showed compassion and excellent customer service. He was polite and mannersable, offering me his phone to call my UK...

We just returned from our second trip in a row at SRP. Somehow, this year was even better than last year. We are now looking forward to our third trip. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with ocean views from your balcony, this property is for you. We were happy to see many familiar faces from last year,...

This was our second trip to the Royal Plantation. We come here for the small size and excellent service we receive. You are greeted with a smile upon arrival and will not see an unpleasant face while you are there. Mario has really improved the food service in the past year. Natalia will great you at breakfast every morning with...

The staff at this wonderful resort make your vacation a very personal experience and they remember you from year to year and work very hard to make your vacation as pleasant as possible. Certainly the bathrooms need a bit of sprucing up and hot water is scarce when everyone is taking a shower but every room has a view of...

Royal Plantation is a fine resort and it is unlikely anyone will regret booking a holiday here. Hopefully here is some additional information that is worth reading before booking. * We stayed in the one refurbished room (112) and also spent 3 nights in a non-refurbished room. The refurbished room had a good modern feel, but wasn't quite as plush...

Visited this gorgeous Sandals all inclusive property for the 4th consecutive year. It never disappoints! This resort only has 74 units and provides it guests with an unparalleled level of service. Each room has that old world charm and wonderful ocean view. The gardens are impeccably maintained and the food is superb. But the real beauty of this resort lies...

The Sandals Royal Plantation is a small and intimate resort, and was very different than what I expected. I almost feel guilty writing about the little flaws of the resort because we were very well taken care of. But equally, I will try to give an accurate account of what it's like to stay at this property. Overall this is...

First time and can't wait to come back before we even leave. What a place! The people are amazing...from butlers Sean and Gladstone...to Cleon serving us continuous libations at the beaches. Totally awesome. What can we say about the spa!! The best 3 days of treatments of our lives. Simone is truly exceptional. Georgianna (sp) pampered my wife's sunburn and...

We are currently in discussions after being informed with less than 24 hours to go before our trip that we do not have the room class that we arranged and booked more than SIX MONTHS ago. Sandals seem to have double booked rooms and chosen to downgrade us on our long-awaited holiday. They have offered us £120 in compensation. They...

We just returned from a lovely vacation at Sandals Royal Plantation. From start to finish it was a great trip. We stayed in room 205. It was near the front of the hotel. Which was very convenient. As previous reviews have stated the rooms do need to be updated. But they are very clean with a great view of the...
