My fiance and I recently spent a fabulous week at Sandals Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios,Jamaica. We were pleased and impressed with its private location and understated elegance. Sandals Royal Plantation, an intimate all-butler resort of just 74 ocean view suites tucked into a magnificent coral bluff, is the epitome of luxury. It is exactly the type of all-inclusive vacation...

If you want something in the Caribbean which rivals what late 19th century British royalty may have experienced, this is the place for you! I felt like I was on Downton Abbey! I hate to make it sound too snobbish, because it also light-hearted and a lot of fun. You will get the distinct impression they really care for you...

Highest rating for Royal Plantation, Sandals smallest resort. The resort is all inclusive, and a great value. The service is exceptional, especially our butlers, Neil and Kenroy, who not only anticipate our every need but also make all our reservations, excursions, shopping outings, etc. With beach butlers Adrian and Cleone on duty, we don't ever lack for cool refreshments, which...

Absolutely love the Sandals resorts! Everything from food, service, staff, entertainment, beaches etc. loved every minute and the locals of Jamaica are awesome! We would definitely return to this resort if we didn't like seeing different places every time. That said you can never go wrong with a Sandals resort.

Everything was great . . . except I am not too good with going up stairs and that was hard but I managed very slowly. The grounds are most beautiful because the resort is set into the hillside. There are only 74 rooms so there are not crowds of people around. They have afternoon tea every day. I used the...

I have mixed feelings of this resort. When I first arrived I thought it was a small and classy resort and I still feel that way. It had the best food out of five other Sandals properties I have visited. The problems began when we were escorted to our room. Our butler showed us to our room , delivered our...

THE GENERAL MANAGER. As much as I could, I liked to wake early and go down to some remote place close to the water and perform my morning stretching and exercise regime while watching the sunrise. Invariably, within 15 minutes of the sun first appearing, would also be the first appearance of Fernand Zievinger, or "Ferry" as all would come...

We can't say enough about SRP! We've read that the place is "getting a little tired" and that there are some renovations planned. Whatever. We found everything about SRP to be amazing from the room, to the food, to the amenities. We loved that it completely lived up to the plantation style you would expect from its name. Some people...

Chadworth and Ashpole were FABULOUSLY FANTASTIC - everyone at the resort is awesome, friendly and make you feel like family. It's is a smaller resort but you will not be disappointed - you can go to the Grand Rivera highly recommended as well

Just spent a wonderful week here. Our Butlers, Chase and Donard were fabulous and went out of their way to make our vacation relaxing and most enjoyable. The entire Resort Staff were also very gracious and accommodating. I wish I could list all their names, but Natalie and Omar stood out. The food was great and they tried very hard...
