Making this our 7th Sandals trip, we chose SRP, Wow! What a pleasant surprise. We were very impressed with the food. The room was very spacious and clean. The view of course, was to die for, and the service was impeccable! Our butlers, Sean and Fiona, were Fabulous, our beach butlers, Adrian and Cleon, were straight up entertaining and fun,...

My wife and I just got back about a week ago from SRP. We did have a great time. But there were some negative things that we mostly overlooked due to the good things that SRP does so right. First off, if you're coming to Jamaica I would highly recommend doing Club Mobay. You get to pass all the long...

"A" - Accommodations were beautifully appointed, maintained well and generous in size. If you have a chance, we recommend upper floors on the west side if possible. You won't get sunsets from any room because of how the buildings are situated, but the west side has great views and you will benefit from the light the best there. (Arnold and...

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...
