Bask blissfully on spectacular glorious golden-sand coves, where you can spend countless hours soaking in the sunshine and sipping on 'mangosas' delivered by unobtrusive Beach Butlers or unwind with a relaxing treatment in the exclusive Red Lane® Spa*.

Read more Where do I begin?! Here are the people that stood out to us the most... Neil/Kenroy - Our Butlers aka The Deam Team Cleon - Beach Runner Hushaun - waiter at the Terrace Kevin - Lifeguard Jason - Social Host Restaurants: You must eat at the Le Papillon, it's a French restaurant there and the food is magnificent. Neptunes - a restaurant at the Grand Riveria Hotek (which is next door) was not as great as other guest said, it's a Mediterranean restaurant. The Royal Grill is great for dinner. Sandals Royal Plantation is a small, intimate resort. This was our first time using a Sandals resort. We absolutely loved the intimacy and the quietness of the resort. Please be sure to utilize the Red Lane Spa. Activities: Horseback riding is not all that they say it is. You'll ride the horse about 40 mins on land and 20 mins in the ocean, ATVs - great! Must try if you are adventurous and the jump in the ocean at the end is great if you can swim, lol Dunn's River Fall - great experience! Bring $$ to buy souvenirs at the end from the locals. For your room bar, make sure to give brand names or you'll get the cheap stuff. The pool is small. Smoking is only allowed on the east beach and front of the hotel. Read less

This was our 7th Stay at the Royal Plantation. As always, we had the wonderful Neil and Kenroy as our Butlers, who did not disappoint. They know exactly what we want/expect - and still continue to... Read more find new ways to suprise and exceed our expectations. We met with and were immediately impressed with Arnold Nugent (Hotel manager) and Marko (Food and Beverage Manager), both have a great vision to move the hotel forward. Arnold has plans to rejuvinate and modernise the hotel, which I am looking forward to seeing on our Return for the 8th Time in January 2015 After going to Sandals La Source in January, we welcomed the friendly, cosy, intimate experience that we always receive at RP. We would like to thanks Beach Butlers for their attentive service(Please TIP, as they are allowed to accept them!!!) Cleon and Biggs. The bar staff at the Wobbly Peacock - Frankie, Junior, Yanquie, Daniello and Richard were all superb - and to Nesta for running a tight ship. The Restaurant supervisor/hostesses - Taniqua and Natalia - Superb, professional and friendly as always. Watersports gents - O'Neill and Kevin - So helpful and friendly. Soon Come Back ladies - Dacia and Jhevere are so sincere and friendly - I recommend you visit them when you look to rebook Bottom line - The staff make the difference here - the food is far better than any other Sandals, down to Executive Chef Peter Hamill and the resort never feels or looks full. You cannot beat this resort - this is why we keep returning. Read less

This was our first time at a Sandals resort, we went for our honeymoon. We weren't sure what to think about the "all butler service" idea, but man were we impressed and delighted with our two... Read more butlers, Sean (aka Seantastic) and Fiona (lovingly known as Fefe). Both were attentive in a professional and fun way, surprises and kind gestures were in abundance. Like everyone has said, the service was amazing, the scenery way breath taking and this resort was relaxing. I liked that we could take advantage of the neighboring resorts amenities, even though we didn't, it was nice to have options. If you go, have the coconut shrimp, go to the Dunn's Falls, go out on the catamaran, bring bug spray and sun screen, pack half of what you think you need, only pack 2 pairs of shoes, and know that it's not as dressy as it looks in the brochure. Because of the size of the resort, you have an opportunity to get to know the other guest. Many people we spoke to had been to either this resort many times or other Sandals resorts and said how amazing the service was at this one. We'll definitely be returning and when we do we're going to be requesting our same butlers, so Sean and Fiona if you're reading this, get ready because we're coming back!! :) Read less

If you are seeking a vacation that is beyond words to try and explain, then Sandals Royal Plantation is the place for you to try. If you wish to find impeccable service, elegant sophistication, top... Read more notch beverages and wonderfully delicious food, SRP has it all. We are seasoned Sandals vacationers having visited over 25 times over the past 20 years. Each Sandals resort has it's own special qualities and we have loved them all. However, whether visiting SRP for the first time, or your tenth, this little slice of Paradise is hard not to fall in love with. This trip was extra special for us as we celebrated our 20th Anniversary by renewing our vows. Sandals "Re-tie the knot" ceremony was absolutely everything we could have wanted or hoped for. A heartfelt thank you to Kelly-Ann, Naomi, and Delgardo for their every effort to make our ceremony, reception and special dinner absolutely wonderful. Special thanks to our top notch, efficient friend and Butler Sheldon Ashpole, for making every day a day to relish, with memories to last long after we return home. His always smiling face, and every kind gesture is so appreciated. Extra special thanks to his team member and our other lovely friend, Chadworth Humphrey, who actually took time from his vacation to come in to work for our event! This gesture and surprise meant so much to us, the kindness, hospitality and efficiency of these two young men is unsurpassable. Special thanks to Audelle for his visit and piano tune during our reception. This quaint and charming resort offers so much. All butler, oceanfront suites, beautiful restaurants, scuba diving, golf, snorkelling, sailing, beach butlers, (a big hello and thanks to Adrian and Cleon), funny, friendly and always smiling entertainment staff, Jason and Oshane, great bars and bartenders (hello Jr. Aka Randy J) and a full staff of friendly, helpful, first class employees. Thanks to Mario, Food and Beverage manager for making sure every meal was not only scrumptious but so beautifully presented as well. Finally, in closing I would like to say a very special thank you to Hotel Manager Arnold Nugent,and GM, Mr. Louis Grant. Your kindness is so much appreciated. Read less

We have stayed at other sandals resorts and truly enjoyed our stay. Royal plantation is a bit different nd in many ways even more delightful. This us a small resort, about 75 rooms, and all butler... Read more . While you may not get the variety of restaurants, the service more than makes up for it. You are constantly cared for by every staff member in addition to your butler. The small size also means you really get to know other guests and staff. You feel like you are with friends. We were also amazed by the number of repeat guest and some had been there over 15 times. The beach is very lovely and more than accommodates the guests. If you want more variety or night life you can go next door. Frankly we never left the royal plantation as we enjoyed everything. The Jamaican food and fish offered at the restaurants were excellent. Some other choices weren't quite as good. Staff indicated they are working on new menus. We will definitely return to this resort ! Read less
