My husband and I are VERY loyal Sandals guests (11 stays in 8 years). We wanted to feel special for our 10th wedding anniversary, and this resort fit the bill. We had other Sandals properties to compare it to, and we consider this one of the top resorts we have been to. It is a smaller property, and that makes...

My wife and I visited this resort for the first time for our 15th Anniversary. It was after much deliberation as I have typically tried to avoid the typical all-inclusive resort due to lack of class and quality. This place is entirely different! Top notch! Excellent service! Wonderful staff! Some of the best food we have ever eaten! Fascinating guests...

This is the 2nd time to the Royal Plantation and we have already booked for next year. The Butler service (or at least our Butler Kenroy whom we had last year was excellent). Le Papillon Restaurant is very good. The acting General Manager Christine who always appears to be available is ensuring the guests are well looked after and addresses...

After our friends left for the states, on April 22 we transferred to Sandal’s Royal Plantation. Jackie and Paula arranged for our transportation and called ahead to visit with our butlers, Orayne and Marvin. Orayne met us at the front door and gave us a tour as he escorted us to our room. The room was very satisfactory, ocean view,...

I am VERY late in sending this. We had our honeymoon Nov. 2012 and it was absolutely amazing. We had a rough start because it is 1.5 hr drive from the airport and was relieved to get to our room.
