We spent a week at Villa Plantana and we enjoyed every minute. We would like to say that "Deli" Delgardo was extremely helpful. He with the house house keeper Nedilca made sure that everything we... Read more needed was taken care of. We were treated like royalty and words can't describe how much we appreciate how well they took care of us. We had a week of total relaxation and we are looking forward to coming back. We are Diamond members and by far our best trip yet. If you are thinking to book the Villa don't hesitate you won't regret it. Feels like home not a hotel. Read less

This was our second stay at this resort but the first with the butler. It was wonderful. Small but elegant and in really good taste. You can relax and enjoy yourself in style. Yes the rooms are a... Read more bit old and worn but are still very nice and comfortable. We were told they are beginning to renovate the rooms. We have re-booked for next year and are looking forward to a relaxing vacation. The food was good with a nice variety. We did find that it tended to be overcooked from lobster to filet to the fish. We certainly didn't go hungry.' We had 2 butlers. Due to scheduling we saw a lot more of Sean who did a wonderful job. He was on top of everything. Ashpole was our other butler but wasn't on much of the time we were there. He did a nice job too. The other staff who did a nice job were: Ovan in water sports made sure we went out sailing whenever we wanted, Cleon and Adrian did a great job as beach butlers with their drink suggestions. Basil and Anneya were wonderful at breakfast and lunch. The entire staff was very warm and welcoming. Everyone greeted us and made us feel at home. The spa was very nice and our couples massage was really relaxing. The gym equipment is dated but it did the job. Don't need fancy to burn calories. See you next November. Read less

We visited Sandals Royal Plantation in late September/early October for our wedding and honeymoon. This was our third visit to the resort and it was even better than ever. We arrived at the MBJ... Read more airport and were met by our Mobay representative. We were so glad we always book this service. We arrived on a Sunday at about 11:00 am and the immigration hall was PACKED! We sailed through immigration and customs in less than 15 minutes. We had time for one quick drink in the lounge as our car was waiting for us. We had a car to ourselves and arrived at SRP in about 80 minutes. Our arrival at the resort was as classy as ever. Our butler, Marvin, was waiting for us with champagne on a silver platter. Our room was ready, so we immediately were taken there. We had booked a Greathouse Suite and requested a suite at the end of the wing, which is exactly what we received. The room was immaculate and all our liquor requests were in the room. Marvin is such a great butler. He is professional and warm and consider him a friend. All of the food at SRP is top notch. Breakfasts at the Terrace are always a pleasure. The buffet items were fresh and well presented, the omelettes were perfectly prepared and items order from the menu were delicious. Natalie was always smiling when we arrived and if she sings for you, you are in for a real treat. What a great young woman! Our lunches were taken at the Royal Grill on the beach. Coconut shrimp, Lobster BLTs, and cheeseburgers were some of our favorites. The band that plays at lunch adds to the ambiance. For dinner, our favorite restaurant was Le Papillon...wonderful service and incredible food. It is so refreshing not to be rushed through dinner. We loved our leisurely dinners there. Other dinners at the Terrace and at Royal Grill. In addition, we had dinner one night next door at Kelly's which was also excellent. Most of our days were spent lounging on the west beach. I had specific chairs I liked to have, so I would head to the beach early. It was so peaceful at that time of day to enjoy a cup of coffee and do a little reading. That being said, you could always get chairs if you weren't too picky about where you sat. The beach butlers, Adrian and Cleon are amazing! We never wanted for food and drink and they were so much fun! The Wobbly Peacock pub was a nightly stop for us. The bartenders are great and always fun. It was a great chance to meet other guests and we made some great new friends. Now to our wedding. Kelly-Ann Styles is the wedding coordinator and she is simply amazing. She has such a positive attitude and everything we wanted she found a way to make it happen. Our wedding party was only six people, but she made us feel like we were as important as a party of 100. The food, the flowers, the decorations...everything was perfect. Thank you Kelly-Ann for making our day so special. Another wonderful person at SRP IS Dacia Stewart. She is the Loyalty Manager and is absolutely lovely. She helped us to book for 2016 and 2017. And whenever we saw her around the resort, she always had time to chat with us. Thank you Dacia for being so amazing. Last, but not least, a few words about the GM, Arnold Nugent, and Operations Manager, Francine Allen. Both of them are simply the best! They always have time to chat and make sure your stay is going well. Sandals should be proud to have these two individuals as part of their team. Our third visit to SRP was our best ever and we can't wait to return next year. This resort is a jewel and we feel so lucky to have found it. Thank you to the entire staff for all you do. Read less
