What a classy resort. As a travel agent myself, I spent 3 nights here in September and just loved it. Our butler, Adrian, was so professional and attentive. A great guy. Well worth it. The service was great and the resort is very clean. There were a few worn cushions in the lobby area that should be replaced. Pool was...

This was our first visit to the Royal Plantation in October 2014 and it will not be our last. RP may be small but it gives a high quality of service and is quiet and relaxed. The drive from Montego Bay airport was an hour and a half mainly following the coast road all the way to Ocho Rios. From...

I have been to RP several times before my recent visit. In previous years there were no "butlers." Note the quotes. On the good news side, the property is still gorgeous, still small and still a decent value. They have a new F&B manager who is terrific and the food is actually better than in prior years. On the downside...the...

We just returned from SRP last night and it was a very relaxing trip for us. We had a fantastic time despite two days of rainy weather. Our butlers, Shelly Ann & Jermaine were awesome. Demor and Romaine at the Terrace restaurant were friendly, helpful and quite entertaining. The food and service were oustanding. Okay, so some advice: Do your...

My husband and I traveled to this resort to celebrate our fifth anniversary. While there, we also renewed our vows. The planning process began before we left home via email, the website, and phone. Once on property, we tested cakes, drank champagne, looked at various ceremony sites and were generally pampered. I can't emphasize enough, the entire process was entirely...

We visited royal plantation recently and having been to other sandals resorts we had an idea of what to expect, however our first few days we were a little disappointing, although things did get better and we did have a fabulous time there.

This is a return trip for us to Royal Plantation. We loved it so much, we wanted to bring our friends. We rented the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom Villa Plantana for five nights, and it was about the same price as 3 couples in 3 separate rooms at RP, but oh what an upgrade! We had our own entrance with...

We went back to Royal Plantation for our 2 year anniversary this year (we went in 2012 for our honeymoon). We were so happy to find that it was just as perfect as the first time!

Visited Royal Plantation with friends in October 2014. This is a very small property which delivers a very high standard of service. We loved the quiet relaxed atmosphere, (no blaring music throughout the day,) the beautiful food, (everything...breakfast, the beach bar food, the restaurants at night... perfect!) and the staff, each and every one of them, we couldn't have asked...
