TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We have been to sandals Montego Bay and really enjoyed it there. We were spoiled with a butler suite. Last year we booked royal plantation for the butler service. The resort is classic British... Read more Caribbean style. Not the newer hotel chic. It was beautiful and spotless, more upscale and less party place. The food was outstanding at all the restaurants. The staff was great. Mark, the manager greeted us upon arrival, he seemed to greet everyone. The butlers, bartenders, wait staff were all very friendly. Anticipated our needs and knew our names. It was our 20th anniversary and we booked a candlelight dinner in the pier. It was raing that night so they set up a private room for us that was amazing. Mark checked in on us often. Just as the main course was coming out my wife and I felt ill. Dreaded travel bug. Mark had walked in and saw the look on our faces. We went back to our room at that point. Our butler was going home and called from his home to check up on us later. Mark also called along with others to make sure we ok. The next morning we were informed that they gave us a do over. We said it wasn't necessary but they insisted. That evening we had a white linen table on the pier. Candles were everywhere. The moon was full, not sure how that did that. LOL. The private dinners are the best value, I think it was $175. It was worth several times that. The customer service they provide is way above and beyond five stars. Mark and his whole staff should be held as a example of how a resort should be run. Sandals owns us for life. Hard to go anywhere else. Read less
Not so much a review, rather an expression of how much we look forward to the relaxation RP offers to each and every vacation we have experience in our home away from home. Both my wife and I... Read more appreciate the quiet and tranquil atmosphere offered along with the personal touches we experience each and every trip!! If you are looking for a party, look elsewhere, if however you are looking to be catered to, spoiled, and generally pampered.....this is your place!! That's not to say I wont be busy, just relaxed busy. Scuba, catamaran sailing, swimming, fine food, some tennis all are in my plans! I guess that's why we come back so many times. Rainer and Kathy B.

We attended a wedding here with family and friends so we spent an entire day on site. The first thing to be aware of is that you cannot visit the hotel or be on the grounds for any event without... Read more purchasing one of their stupid day passes for $150! Doesn't matter if you don't drink, doesn't matter if you just want to come for a wedding etc you still have to pay and lets face it, making your guests pay to attend your wedding is beyond tacky. Here are my general impressions of the resort: -the rooms seemed pretty nice in a pre-fab, upscale Mariott sort of way but they were a good size and the beds looked comfy. Of course they cost a fortune so they damn well better be comfy! -all inclusive resort means you can walk up to one of multiple bars and order a drink. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable so that was nice. -several restaurants on site but virtually all of them are serving generic, mass-produced buffet quality food that you can get anywhere. Even the sit down a la carte restaurant we tried was mediocre at best. -service at the restaurants was appalling...we were at the bride and groom's table and were amazed at how rude they were to the newlyweds. All kinds of stupid mistakes, not filling their water and wine glasses, not serving them first, giving their guests attitude when they received the wrong dish, it was really bad -party bros EVERYWHERE. If that's your scene, you wanna hang out with a pack of baseball hat and croakie wearing, keg standing tools dressed up like a Hollister commercial then this might be just what you're looking for. But why go to Jamaica for this? Why not just go to Destin or Panama City in Florida? Save yourself some money! -Basically if you want to stay in a pre-fab make-believe version of Jamaica and not experience ANY of the culture, the music, the people, the food and you want to pay a fortune to do it and never leave your little resort except to go to and from the airport then you might enjoy this place, otherwise you'll hate it. We rented a house nearby for the week and paid about a 1/4 of the cost and had a fantastic vacation. Do yourself a favor and investigate better options on the island. Read less
I sit here gazing out from the veranda of my room wishing I had more time to be here. We will board the plane ✈ home in the morning and will be asleep in our own bed tomorrow night. Our week here... Read more started out a bit rocky, but with a few well placed comments, our issues were remedied. We are accustomed to larger properties and this one is quite small. That being said, things are different here. If you are looking for high energy ⚡, this is not your resort. But higher energy ⚡ can be found next door at Sandals Grand Riviera. With the smaller resort, one will receive service by name from more staff members. From the first day, Lisa called us by name every time she saw us. Within 2 orders, our drink orders were remembered by Shanniel and Damian. Cleon took great care of us at the pool too. Natalia always brightened up our mornings with her sweet voice greeting us or as she passed by. The two Romaines always took good care of us at the Terrace most often in the mornings. One of the two Romaines sang in competition with other Sandals employees. To him, I say "you were robbed!" However, he was up against some tough competition. Keep singing . A friend I made here and I dubbed Oshane the "Camp Counselor". He is one of the playmakers and we did "tie and dye" shirts one afternoon and beaded jewelry another. So I have some souvenirs no one else has. The ladies at the Soon Come Back desk did their jobs well, as we have booked another trip. They are very sweet and beautiful ladies and so much fun to be around. I also want to shout out to our butlers, Chadworth and Ashmore. Thanks for making our vacation all that it was. To all the chefs, servers, beach staff, bartenders, office staff, management, housekeeping, maintenance and grounds crew, I want to say thank you so much. Read less
Well I just returned from another wonderful vacation thanks to Sandals and Ruth DeMuth of Trip Guy Travel! This was our seventh Sandals vacation in our first trip to the Royal plantation, and I... Read more must say the Royal plantation has set the bar very high for our next trip. Let me start by giving a wonderful shout out to Ruth as she gently convinced me to go with an upgraded balcony suite. Being able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the view of the ocean and Terrace was absolutely wonderful and well worth it. What made this Sandals more extraordinary than many of the others was the incredible service. For example I would head to the beach in the morning with my coffee and I would pass three people would all offered to carry it down the stairs for me. Are Butler's Orayne and Marvin were exceptional. Of all the sandals we stayed at the food here was by far the best, we enjoyed all the restaurants but especially the French. The beach was small, but it was absolutely stunning the water was clear turquoise. Well we were there to cheer game was not in play. Even though I would come down at 6:30 7 o'clock with my cup of coffee, we were still chairs available by nine. The beach service was nice touch, and the beach butlers were absolutely wonderful. The only problem we had was on the way back, when my daughter and son-in-law's flight was canceled due to weather, once again Ms. Ruth was right on it. Overall I really like Sandals well plantation, and I hope to get to return soon Read less
