Sandals Royal Plantation has exceptional staff that make you feel like family but has new management with both levels of highest authority who have just arrived. Both seem like gentlemen who would endeavour to tweak the place to spiff it up. One hopes that budget will be allocated to allow for some capital improvements such as renovating the bathrooms in...

We are not high maintenance but the butler service and staff were incredibly attentive to all of our needs. The ocean views, the restaurant options were spectacular. A special shoutout to our...

My wife and I just returned from our 4th trip to RP. It has been said many times, but it is worth repeating about how incredible the family at RP is. I purposely didn't use the word staff because they are not, it is a family. That is how they treat each other and consequently the guests are treated the...

My husband and I visited Sandals Royal Planation over New Year's. This was an amazing resort with a level of service that that is second to no other. The food was delicious and there were many choices. I read many reviews before arriving and many were mixed about the food. Every restaurant was different, had great food, and wonderful service....

We spent our first 10 days of our honeymoon at this resort. It's already been almost 4months since we were there, and no one we knew had been here before so we were not very sure about what we were going to find when we got to the hotel. First thing we got as soon as we landed were two...

Again this year we visited Sandals Royal Plantation. It did not disappoint. We love this property for the boutique feel. There are only 148 guests and each room has a butler. The service is above and beyond and the experience is totally relaxing. We also enjoyed our experience in the spa...divine. This property is for the couple that is looking...

This was our second trip to the SRP (Dec 20-29th/2014). Only 10 months after our first trip at the same location for our honeymoon. We were again fully satisfied with pretty much everything. The staff over exceeded their call of duty, especially our wonderful butlers and beach butlers (Neil, Kenroy, Adrian and Cleon). The entertainer, O'Shane was an absolute delight...
