TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
If you're looking to unwind and get away from it all, this is the place! It's a small hotel without any crowds or noisy patrons. The butler service is amazing and I loved that they even unpacked for... Read more us. They'd serve us breakfast on the beach and it was great not having to worry about a thing! The hotel is lacking night life but you have access to Sandals Ochi which is 5 minutes down the road and has TONS to do! The decor is more traditional but it was just what my husband and I needed - a super relaxing vacation! If you've never used a certified Sandals travel agent - Mark & Ann Brown of Island Breeze Travel are amazing and Mark answered tons of questions I had before the trip and made it an even smoother vacation - things like telling us about Mobay at the airport (customs fast track - -worth every penny!) and booking our excursions! And the best part is it didn't cost us a penny more than it would have booking on our own! Great vacation!! Read less
We went to this hotel for our honeymoon in mid-September, and we couldn't have made a better choice. This is a small hotel compared to other resorts, about 70 rooms I believe, which makes it a very... Read more private and personalized experience. When you land in the airport, you get to spend some time in the Sandals lounge until your ride is ready. Our driver was very friendly and made the 1,5 hour drive very fun. When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by our butler Marvin and a manager greeted us with champagne. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There is one small pool in this hotel, so some people may find this as a drawback, but the beach is gorgeous so we never used the pool. Our butler Marvin was very friendly and helpful. He booked our dinner reservations for us, brought our breakfast to our room every morning and found out about excursions for us. The hotel doesn't have a lunch/dinner buffet, but has a pub menu, 24 hour room service, and 3 a la carte restaurants (2 of which require dinner reservations). The food tasted great and we had plenty of options to choose from. The only negative I would say is that the restaurants were slow in terms of service, but the quality of the food and service makes up for this. We stayed on the East Wing. The room was very clean, comfortable and spacy. Our fridge was restocked and the room was cleaned daily. I believe all the rooms have an ocean view, but we stayed on the 3rd floor and the view was great. The East Wing has a couple of trees by it though, so if you just want to see the ocean, get a room on the West Wing. Overall, we can't wait to go back to this Sandals! Read less
We have just returned from 10 wonderful nights at the Royal Plantation and we would like to thank them all for making our time there the most memorable holiday at Sandals we have had. We have stayed... Read more at several Sandals and without a doubt this is the best yet, the hotel gives a perfect blend between old world charm and modern convenience The restaurants were all very good, we especially loved Le Papillion, the food was very good and the staff, Dewarge, Orlando and Natalia were so attentive and polite, we ate here most night and the lobster, shrimp starter and the lemon tart dessert were fantastic Breakfast and Lunch at the Terrace and lunch the beach grill was very nice, The wobbly Peacock was great to go to for an afternoon snack if you skipped lunch and was also nice to get out of the heat and be greeted with a smile and a drink We did visit the hotel next door and although it was very nice it is extremely large and we were happy to get back to the Royal The most important part of this hotel is the staff. We have found that the majority of staff at other Sandals are friendly, happy and courteous. The staff at the Royal plantation are, in our opinion, the best staff we have had the pleasure to spend our holiday with, all of them without exception excel at their jobs, every single one of them goes out of their way to make you feel extra special, with a warm welcome and a sunny smile. The general Manager Mr Nugent is the most hands on manager we have seen at any of the resorts we have visited, he will go out of his way to make you feel at home and appreciated, He is always walking around the resort and thinks nothing of giving you a hug spending time talking to you and making you feel extra special. We would also like to give a big thanks to our butlers, Sean and Ash. They were very professional and always at the end of the phone to do anything they could to make our holiday special, we would especially like to thank them for making our celebrations there feel extra special. If you are lucky enough to have these two you must ask Sean to do the rainbow shots, pretty impressive. There are so many people there that go out of their way to make you feel special, we would especially like to pass our thanks on to a few that stood out for us, Orane, Dewarge, Orlando, Richard and of course Natalia, who was always smiling and singing at breakfast These are some of best staff we have had the pleasure to meet at any of the Sandals resorts we have been too. We would also like to say thank Francine Allen the hotel manager a lovely young lady that will help you make the most of your holiday and help in any way she can to enhance your stay. The only slight criticism is the size of the pool, it could benefit from a slightly larger one but this does not detract from the overall experience Overall our holiday was fantastic and was made even better by the staff at this wonderful boutique resort and we cannot wait to go back Read less
What can I say except that Sandals Royal Plantation (SRP) is the best resort we have ever stayed at. It is the people that make up the Family at SRP that make all the difference !! Letâ€™s start with... Read more Oâ€™Neil aka Pigeon. The 2nd day at SRP I lost my doo rag at the beach. The next afternoon, Oâ€™Neil, returned my doo rag. My doo rag has sentimental value to me !! Thank-you, Oâ€™Neil, for being a Good Samaritan â€“ your kindness will never be forgotten !! Orane was our most favourite bartender at the Wobbly Peacock. He was polite, kind, and respectful to my Wife and I. Orane is a great drink mixoligist, and not once did our drinks go empty. Not to mention, Orane, had a great sense of humour, and had a lot of card tricks up his sleeve. Thank-you, Orane, for engaging us in conversation and being a really good listener. You are truly a gentle man !! Every morning, we had breakfast at The Terrace. We ordered off the menu - all traditional Jamaican meals - Mackerel & Green Banana (Rundown), Ackee & Salt fish, or Escovitch and Yams - absolutely incredible food. Natalia aka Angel was one of our favourite girlâ€™s at SRP, and she worked the breakfast on The Terrace. Natalia's sweet voice was very soothing. She sang all her favourite songs better than the singers themselves. Nataliaâ€™s talents would be better served as a singer than a server !! Natalia is a very hard worker, and has a beautiful smile. Natalia â€“ you are our Angel !! We ate at Papillion for the majority of our dinners. Taniqua and Husane were our servers. Taniqua was so nice to us, and I wish her all the best on the birth of her baby boy Jamir in December. Husane was absolutely perfect as a 1st class waiter, and he was very attentive and polite â€“ Thanks very much !! And Dowarge - thank you very much for making us laugh !! The Chilean Sea Bass and Filet Mignon (Tenderloin) was incredible as well as the Lobster dishes and Red Snapper. The Papillion is by far one of the best high class restaurants we have ever been to â€“ the food taste, quality, and presentation were awesome, and the service was impeccable !! Letâ€™s not forget - Cleon aka Mr. Hollywood aka Waki-Boy aka School-Boy. Cleon was a great Beach Butler. And of course - Adrian aka Mr. Biggz was very friendly and attentive to our needs with regards to libations on da beach !! A big shout out to Cleon and Adrian for their exemplary service on da beach !! Sheldon took me out on a hobie cat ride twice in one day. The late afternoon ride was awesome in that the ocean surf was high due to the high winds. We experienced 6 foot swells about a km off shore â€“ what a rush. This a â€œmust doâ€ if you are going to spend any time @ SRP on their beaches. Thanks, Sheldon, also, for taking my wife on a hobie cat ride in the morning when the waves are easy â€“ She is not comfortable on the water but you were very attentive to her fear of the wata â€“ Thanks !! A special mention goes out to Daniel, a grounds keeper, who we had a very nice conversation with. And, Giovanni, who, without us asking, brought over a freshly picked coconut and personally cut the coconut so we could taste a real fresh coconut â€“ very thoughtful and it tasted great !! And I would also like to commend Courtney and Michael for their service at The Royal Grille beachside. We were always looked after by getting a prime seat â€“ in the sun for me, and in the shade for my wife. A special shout out to Judy â€“ the Chef at the Royal Grille. Judy is a very hard working chef, and we are glad to have met her to thank her in person for all the great lunches. Judy cooked my Wife and I the best Curry Chicken we have ever had. Also, the Coconut Shrimp and deep fried Red Snapper was outstanding along with the homemade soup and gespacho soup that we had every day !! By now you probably have figured out that my Wife and I are â€œfoodiesâ€. That being said, we would like to give a special Thanks to Peter â€“ the Head Chef @ SRP. Peter, Thank-you, so much, for going the extra mile and preparing us an oxtail dinner on Friday night - Jamaican night. It was awesome, and the Crab ceviche was also over the top !! Make sure that you donâ€™t miss the Jamaican Night â€“ they had a buffet set up on The Terrace with freshly grilled Lobster tails, BBQ Jerk Pork and Chicken, fresh sautÃ©ed Callilou, and the best Curry Goat I have ever tasted â€“ they use the front quarter leg of goat for the curry and it was done cooked perfectly !! On Jamaican Night they have excellent live entertainment â€“ the 1st hour starts with the 3 Jamaican Smiles band playing classic Jamaican bento music â€“ just their smiles alone, never mind their talented musician skills, made our night. And last but not least the 8 Jamaican dancers that put on a fabulous show that profiles the history of Jamaican dance and song. They were all professional dancers, and all I can say is it was an absolutely incredible show !!!! And last but not least it was a pleasure to have met Arnold - the G.M. of SRP. He was very kind, pleasant, and sincerely cared to know how our stay was going on two separate occasions. And thanks to Dacia & Francine, who were very kind and professional when we signed up for another Sandals vacation !! There is probably something or someone I forgot to mention, but I only have so much space on trip advisor for my comments. Bottom line - From the moment we entered the front gates of Sandals Royal Plantation, we were treated with courteous service, amazing food, and lots of smiles that made us feel like Family. We will definitely return to SRP !! Sending our Love to All at SRP, David & Siria Read less
My husband and I booked our honeymoon for Sept. 2014. Upon arrival we were greeted with friendly faces and welcomed with open arms. Our butler, Sheldon, came out to greet us and gave us a tour of the... Read more property. He was friendly and spoke to us like we had known him for years. We met our second butler, Richard, a short time later. Sheldon and Richard were awesome! They were very attentive and the times we did need something they had it to us immediately. Orlando served us most nights at The Terrace. We loved him. He is friendly and made each night we ate out there great! Orane also served us a lot at the bar. Again, another friendly face. The beach butlers were great! No sooner did we finish drinks and they were there asking if we wanted another one. The atmosphere the workers provide at The Plantation is top of the line. The food was fantastic and the resort was really clean. We left our Honeymoon grateful for all the employees who took the time to welcome us and give us an amazing experience. Needless to say we booked again. We arrived Sept. 26, 2015 and yet again we were welcomed. It was almost as if we had never left. Hector greeted us with a friendly smile and throughout the week he remained top notch! Olivia was our second butler and we loved her just as much. A few days after our arrival we ran into Richard. He remembered us! We were shocked. It was at that moment we began to look around at all the staff. Hardly any change. We were familiar faces to them just like we recognized them. Richard, Orane, and Q served us almost every day and they went above and beyond. Their customer service skills are top notch. My husband ordered a candlelight dinner on our anniversary and we were served by Steve. He is new to the plantation but would be an EXCELLENT addition to the full time staff. Adrienne and Cleon were our beach butlers and they were incredible. Always had a smile on their faces and were willing to go above and beyond the needs of the guests. All managers were present along with the GM. Any questions you have they are always willing to answer. Again, another year of incredible food, top notch service, outstanding butler service (both personal and beach) and a quiet, beautiful, well maintained resort. Booking here would be no mistake for anyone. Read less
