Your resort is beautiful! I wish the beach was larger as in the past, the resorts we stayed had long, sandy beaches to walk. I didn't like the fact that the lounge chairs had to be so close to each other and there wasn't enough privacy. The staff were exceptional and very friendly and willing to please. The food was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

Three couples stayed in the Villa Plantana to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was a truly special experience! The villa is gorgeous - very sophisticated while retaining the beach house feel. Our butler Delgardo and the rest of the villa staff took such wonderful care of us and pulled out all the stops to give us a great experience. I...

This place makes you forget that there is a world outside. The peacefulness takes your breath away. If you want to write a book this is definitely the place to go and get all the inspiration you want.

We went to Sandals Royal Plantation at the end of April. Our stay was fantastic! We have gone to Sandals Whitehouse (South Coast) three times but thought we’d try this one since Whitehouse is doing renovations that look a bit too modern for us. The resort is like Whitehouse but concentrated! The layout is beautiful and still has a wonderful...

This resort is the perfect size and setting for a quiet relaxing vacation. Food: We are diamond members and have been to many Sandals, i would say the food here beats them all (kudos to Mario the F&B manager). We were a bit concerned because there are so few restaurants to choose from, but because the a la carte menus...

We took a private transfer from the airport because we wanted to stop at Scotchies, which if you like jerk you should check out Scotchies in Montego Bay. Upon arrival we were greeted, in typical Sandals fashion, with smiling faces, a cold towel and a glass of champagne. Check-in was effortless and after a few minutes we met our butler...

Didn't know what to expect. Never been to a Sandals resort before. Small and private is what I prefer. This Resort fit the bill perfectly. Wonderful decor, beautiful grounds, great housekeeping.

This was the second time we had the pleasure of staying at Sandals Royal Plantation, and we are booked for a third. We have stayed at almost every Sandals resort on Jamaica save one, and the Royal Plantation has a great value for the dollar. Every room is a butler room and you really don't have to lift a finger...and...

When we arrived at Royal Plantation we were very disappointed in the room we were given, it was very shabby and battered looking. In fact the door had obviously been broken into and therefore we could not lock it, however we called reception and within 5 minutes a maintenance man arrived and fixed it, The following morning we had no...
