TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We stayed at RP in late Jan-early Feb,and did a vow renewal. Our butlers were Jermaine and Shelly,both very competent and professional at their jobs. As we hadn't been here for two years,a few... Read more observations on what has changed: The beach is shrinking,Hurricane Sandy did some damage this far south,incredible. Food actually got better since our last stay,which is really saying something. House red wine selection needs improvement. House Champagne is very good. Super Bowl tailgate party was spot on,with all the right appetizers. Jamaican night was great,Curried Goat was awesome. Biggs and Cleon cover the beach expeditiously as always. Just a word here on the clientele: For anyone looking to book here,a fair cross section (75-80%),of the people staying here are: American or Canadian(can now be group together since Bieber united us!) Mid 40's to 70's Either small business owners,professional blue collar,or white collar middle management Married to same partner for many years Drink,but aren't drunks This resort comes HIGHLY recommended for anyone who enjoys peace and quiet,excellent food and a truly unique experience It will take you several days back in the world to become a functional human being again after this vacation,which,to me,is the definition of a vacation Holler to Caroline and Kev,Ron and Karen from Jersey,Scott and Karen from KC,and Bob and his wife from Wisconsin Already booked for same time next year Used Club Mobay on way out for the first time,will use it again,worth every penny Read less
got back last night from a fabulous stay at royal plantation. what can I say that other people didn't say, just add more praises. the grounds, public area, restaurants and rooms are kept very clean... Read more . the staff couldn't be more gracious and helpful. the food was better then good. it was great. and if there was anything special that you wanted, it was brought to you with a smile. (my special ice coffee).highly recommend the special tasting lunch on Tuesday at the Terrace.!!!!! we loved the food at the French restaurant and our server Orlando that popped up every morning and afternoon in different restaurants. he couldn't do enough for us. (loved that sandwich box he arranged for our trip back to the airport). Our butlers Chad and Ashpool were very helpful and accommodating. Lets not forget the 2 wonderful guys at the beach-Adrian and Cleon (thanks for the yellow sunglasses) always making sure that we had everything, smiling and gracious Natalia and lastly' the crew at The Royal Grill on the beach that we met on our last night. sorry if I don't mention you by name but you know who you are. the server who recited the whole menu to me at lunch time' the bar tender who made us fabulous non-alcoholic and alcoholic cocktail and the chef that came to see how we liked our food. can't wait to go back (next year). as the title says' we are not honeymooners but we spent our 36 wedding anniversary . we met quite a few middle age and older people. so the place is for everybody. thanks again, and will see you next year.

We arrived at the RP to warm and friendly reception which was the perfect start to an exceptional vacation. All of the staff here are amazing and endeavour to make your stay an incredible... Read more experience. Our butler's Shelly-Ann and Jermaine spoiled us and ensured that we had everything we could possibly want or need including making sure we had potato chips in our room. A surprise candlelight dinner and marriage proposal was made even more special with Shelly-Ann serenading us with "At Last" and Jermaine decorating our room and leaving chilled Champagne to continue the celebration. Adrian and Cleon catered to us on the beach and kept us entertained. Delgardo, Romaine, Shamoy, Natalia, the bar staff, and everyone else at the RP were always smiling and the service was amazing. Afternoon tea is a "must do". Best scones, lemon curd and clotted cream ever. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The peacocks are lovely adding to the royal experience. The RP is a smaller, quiet resort which is perfect for a relaxing vacation. The food and the service is outstanding no matter where you choose to eat. Everything is top notch. We will absolutely return in the future. The only minor complaint we would have is that the connectivity to internet is slow and intermittent. Read less
My wife and I stayed at the hotel in Feb. 2014 for our honeymoon. The grounds were gorgeous. Staff and guests were all very friendly. The ratio of staff to guests is outstanding. We found the... Read more management very friendly and helpful. The food at the French restaurant was top-notch (much better than at the adjoining Sandals property). Our butler even arranged to have the chef prepare our favorite dish one evening. The beach butlers, waiters and bartenders are helpful and keep the drinks flowing. Our butlers were just OK, although we witnessed some butlers that seemed to provide excellent service. I would recommend that you read the reviews and ask for a butler team that is praised often. All-in-all, I would stay at this hotel again! Read less
