My new wife and I were looking for a place to go to in the Caribbean for our honeymoon. We reviewed countless places for several months and finally decided on the Sandals Royal Plantation and traveled there 8/17/14 - 8/24/14. I'll try and review this place accurately and address some of the issues of others on here who rated this...

We recently spent July 23-August 2 at RP-our fourth visit! We absolutely love this resort! I will hit the Pros and Cons of this visit. Cons-Our check-in process did not impress us.

My wife and I spent a lovely week at this hotel from 3-10 August. We were celebrating nothing in particular - just being alive, happy and still in love. It was a wonderful experience, perhaps the best of our several previous stays there. The small property is beautiful and easy to navigate (despite the challenging irregular steps down to the...

My husband and I vacationed at the Royal Plantation from August 8th to the 15th following the recommendation of our travel agent Mike McHugh of Dreammakers Vacations. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Having never been to a Sandals property before, we were not sure what to expect. We read many glowing reviews before our visit, but many of them were from...

This property is really a great place in Ocho Rios. It is an all around beautiful spot with incredible amenities. The population is a bit older than the other Sandals but that may be due to the higher rate. If you want more activity they are happy to shuttle you to another property. I highly recommend this resort.

We have traveled all over the Caribbean and this is now our second home. The atmosphere, amenities and the food and drink are superb, but it is the staff that makes this place a must visit. We have never encountered staff like this anywhere in all of our travels. No matter who it is or what they do they are...

If this is in your budget range and you have not visited, you are missing out of a wonderful vacation. This is not a high energy resort, you can always take excursion packages or visit another Sandals property. Hotel is small enough to make friends and discrete enough if you want privacy. This should be the #1 hotel in Ochos...

I have traveled to most of the Sandals Resorts with my husband and this offers the most privacy and excellent service. Not too much going on at this resort but relaxing. We really enjoyed doing absolutely nothing but being pampered by our butlers. Breakfast in bed everyday if you wish. Room decorated with rose petals after dinner. We enjoyed eating...

We stayed from 8/9-15. Our bus ride was smooth and we were with another couple that was coming back for their 7th time. (The were like little kids on Christmas morning). On first glance the resort is classy, charming and spotless. We stayed in the Plantation Oceanfront Butler suite (room 205). Despite not having a roman tub(which doesn't really matter)...

We went to Sandals Royal Plantation last October, 2013. A gift from my wonderful father, after the loss of our youngest son. We were shell shocked and needed time away.
