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... More

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)... More

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... More

We have been going to Sandals/Beaches resorts since 1994 and in this time have been at least 30 times to various ones and Sandals Royal Plantation is the only resort ever that we decided to go twice in the same year. This resort is simply amazing. I have a YTube account (under Anita Beata) so you can watch my videos... More

The staff of Sandals Royal Plantation is excellent and we received great service for the duration of our stay. Thanks to our butlers and also beach butlers (Cleon and Danielo) who made a point to always be there with a smile. The hotel itself if old and in needs of updates, which the staff will willingly admit to you. We... More

We have just returned from our 7th visit to RP in the last 5 years, this Sandals resort has become our home away from home. We keep returning to our favourite Island in the Caribbean and also to this wonderful small hotel of some 72 suites with Butler service. One advantage of staying at RP is it being so close... More

This was our first trip to a Sandals resort. We booked it on the recommendation of the Manager of our local Thomson travel shop when a "two for the price of one" special offer deal was available and how glad we are that we listened to her advice. We are seniors and tend to be "beach bums" when on holiday... More

Absolutely loved the smaller sized property with only 75 rooms. It felt like we were staying at someone's beautiful estate. Butler service with Kadesha and Robert was excellent. The best food we've ever experienced at an all-inclusive resort (thanks Mario!) The view of the ocean from our lovely sitting area in our room was like a postcard. Every restaurant overlooked...

So relaxing and peaceful, very personalized service. Our butlers Orlando and Neil were absolutely fantastic, always available and there with a big smile, and helpful down to the smallest detail. All the staff was very friendly and helpful , constantly making sure we were taken care of. The resort is small, quaint and perfect for our vacation needs. We will... More
