I absolutely love Sandals! The staff was amazing! The food was even better! We had 2 awesome butlers, Chase & Donard and they were great. They even walked me down the aisle at our ceremony. The peacocks roaming the grounds were amusing. The beach was perfect as well as the beach staff. I loved the resort because it was quite....

My husband and I just returned last Sunday from our second stay at the Royal Plantation. It was even better than our first stay last year. Something that really impressed me was the fact that many of the staff remembered us from last year. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating and you really do get that personal attention that the...

What a wonderful week we had being pampered. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Our room was beautiful and the staff went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. The water, the view, the privacy, the food and drinks and nightly entertainment were all fantastic. We shall return.

Where to start, this is our second trip to the Royal Plantation and we have just returned, the food is amazing, the service on the most part excellent. Big thanks go out to our butlers Orayne and Marvin who were always a phone call away and were very helpful throughout our stay. Dacia (soon come back) was I believe genuine...

All around a wonderful place to stay. Quiet and relaxed. Attentive and friendly service all around. Our butler, Ashpole, was always available when needed and more than eager to do whatever he could to make the stay a pleasure. Pretty much the same for all the staff. A long way from the airport (about an hour and a half) but...

We enjoyed the quieter intimate atmosphere and the staff was so nice. However, the private butler service was more like a conceirge service. Our private butlers weren't exactly a private butler at all. Getting drinks and towels on the beach was a challenge much before noon. When they got there though they were as nice and friendly as you would...

Sandals knows how to treat their clients. From the moment we arrived at the resort, we were treated like royalty. This is a butler resort, and our butlers, Audell and Tafari were more than outstanding. Anything you wanted was done with more than a smile. Two great gentlemen. The food was very good, but served on Jamaican time. Which means...
