When we first arrived, I was a bit worried about how the week was going to go. We went to open the french doors, and the handle feel off into the bushes below. Also, the locks on the french doors doors didn't work, so they had screwed a makeshift lock onto them. I was very worried everything was this run...

This is our second holiday at the Royal Plantation in the last year. This is probably Sandals smallest resort but huge on service. I can't say enough about each and every person that works at this resort from the upper management to the groundskeepers. The other amazing aspect about this resort is the food. UNBELIEVABLE !!!!

This all inclusive, all butler suite resort is staffed with cheerful, caring folks. From our butlers Sheldon and Richard (awesome butlers), to the front desk and restaurant staff, all really do care about their guests. This hotel only has 74 rooms and is romantically intimate in all regards. The food is exceptional in all of the restaurants, 24hr room service,...

We stayed at the Sandals Royal Plantation the week of November 15 - 22, 2014. This was our 7th Sandals vacation but the first time we have visited this resort. We had heard and read many good things about this resort and were not disappointed. The resort grounds are spectacular with the main part of the resort sitting well above...

We have just returned from SRP. We have many many stays in 5 stars hotels in various countries and were returning Sandals guests, having stayed at the Whitehouse last year. I agree with spidrman's review : the staff is extremely nice, the food is excellent, the two beaches are small but do not feel overcrowded. Further more, the heated whirlpools...

Having just returned from SRP, it has taken a few minutes for us to gather our review. The main reason is that we will not be able to voice a good enough review to explain how we feel. So, first of all, the weather did not cooperate, we had four days of torrential down pours. BUT the staff surely made...

In 2013 I reviewed this hotel and gave it a poor rating. I am so glad it has regained its excellent status. No issues with transfers or events this year. We stayed in September 2014. Everything from the moment we arrived until we left was amazing. The food, the service, the entertainment were all superb. The butlers Shelley and Jermaine...

Went here on our honeymoon. Upon arrival we were greeted by our butler who got us a drink at the bar and showed us around the resort.
