This was our first trip to Jamaica and first time at Sandals. This resort is small and quiet with only about 74 rooms. However, there is plenty to do and see. You can take many excursions, dive, snorkel, use their paddle boards, sail, etc. It only has 3 restaurants, but you have access to the Sandals Ochi which is next...

Just returned from our second trip and I cannot possibly say enough good things. Our butlers, Richard and Chase, welcomed us like family and made our trip special. Richard, Orane, and Junior kept the delicious drinks flowing during late nights at the Wobbly Peacock. Cleon and Daniello are amazing beach butlers. Nothing like enjoying a mimosa and a lobster blt...

service was very good, staff very extremely friendly and helpful....we were disappointed with the condition of the golf course as we were expecting it to be in great shape...the greens were rough and the fairways were over-grown with different types of grass.

We've been to Royal Plantation before and looked forward to returning. The beach is beautiful, the staff is more than welcoming, and the food is wonderful. However, we were disappointed to experience so many issues with the shower/bath in our room(s) during our stay. We actually had to do a room change after 2 days because our shower kept breaking...

What a dream vacation! The hotel is 4 star all the way but so if the friendly helpful staff the grounds and ocean views are amazing but so is everyone who works there. I had zero stress at this hotel because they take care of your every need and I can not wait to return there next year. Everyone deserves...

This was our 3rd visit to Royal Planation. Love returning to this resort. Each visit it gets better, and the workers there are what make the resort. Our butlers, Richard and Chase are amazing. Love coming back to our room at the end of the day, or evening to see the surprises you had left for us. Arnold, you should...

This is a beautiful property. Has a lot of antique charm. Great if you want something quite and a boutique style resort. Amazing food, great service, you will feel like luxury staying here. Keep in mind most of the balconies are french balconies. Beach is small but very nice.

This was my husbands and I first stay at an all inclusive and I worry it will ruin me to the rest. We have done celebrity cruises with beverage packages so that's what I can compare to it. We worked very hard to pay for this trip and it was a splurge so for this that worry about the price...

We have been to Royal Plantation before and had a wonderful time. This time something was off. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. It seems as though management is trying to run the resort on a dime. There were constant outages of food (chicken nuggets at The Grill ran out at least 3 days during our stay)...

If staying at the fictional Grand Budapest Hotel from the movie by the same name is what you're looking for, choose this place. It's not without its own unique charm and a more intimate feeling than many resorts, but it has seen better days. If instead you are expecting a well kept room and facilities in a "historic" location, I...
