Highest rating for Royal Plantation, Sandals smallest resort. The resort is all inclusive, and a great value. The service is exceptional, especially our butlers, Neil and Kenroy, who not only... Read more anticipate our every need but also make all our reservations, excursions, shopping outings, etc. With beach butlers Adrian and Cleone on duty, we don't ever lack for cool refreshments, which is provided with such great sense of humor and timeliness. We love the food at all the restaurants, not only because it is great (thanks to Chef Peter) but also because the wait staff is excellent. Special kudos to Dewarde at the Papillon, who not only recognized us but remembered our favorites from last year! We loved the smiling faces of Natalia and Latoya, who were so accommodating to all the guests' food and seating requests, and sang happily as they provided services. Natalie and Sonjay at the Grill were also excellent and attentive. Rhodine, while cooking excellent omelets to order, lit up the serving area with his smile when the sun came out after several cloudy days. Oren, the bartender, remembered our drink orders and how we wanted them made. The housekeeping staff (both day and night turndown for room 260) were very friendly and helpful. The head lifeguard on the west beach provides a safe beach area, towels for the guests and has the chairs/umbrellas ready each morning. All day, he industriously removes trash that washes in, leaves, etc, making sure the area is always clean and tidy. Everyone we met was very helpful and friendly. In short, the facilities are wonderful, but it is the people who keep us coming back. Read less

Absolutely love the Sandals resorts! Everything from food, service, staff, entertainment, beaches etc. loved every minute and the locals of Jamaica are awesome! We would definitely return to this...

We can't say enough about SRP! We've read that the place is "getting a little tired" and that there are some renovations planned. Whatever. We found everything about SRP to be amazing from the... Read more room, to the food, to the amenities. We loved that it completely lived up to the plantation style you would expect from its name. Some people can find fault in anything and that's simply too bad. If your idea of a vacation is to get away and party, then you would do well to find another place. SRP is definitely for those who want to kick back, relax and unwind. You can certainly take advantage of the excursions if you want to amp up your experience beyond the unlimited water sports and golf already on offer, but it isn't necessary. After the evening entertainment on the terrace concluded, we ended each night at the Wobbly Peacock and had a great time. The only thing we did outside the resort was to use Chris Linton at chrisjamaicatours.com to visit the Blue Hole. That was a great time (better than Dunn's River Falls by a long way) and Chris and Riley were a blast. Contact Chris through his website if you get a chance. What makes SRP excellent and different than any other resort we've been to is the people. They smiles and attitudes of everyone we came across made our first visit to Jamaica something we won't forget. Our butlers Fiona and Marvin seemed to anticipate our wants and needs everyday and without ever intruding. Adrian and Cleon were great and made sure to add just that much more sunshine to already great days on the beach. But there were so many other people who made sure that our decision to book at SRP was the right one. I know I'll forget to include some names so I apologize in advance, but every day our stay was made better by the smiling faces and superior service provided by: Adlin, Dacia, Damarley, Daniello, Dwayne, Estina, Jhavere, Keith, Naomi, Natalia, Natalie, Navardo, Nicholas, O'keefe, O'Neil, Oral, Orane, Ornella, Rhyan, Simon, Simone, Sonjay, Texan, And the management team led by Ferry, Arnold and Peter need to be congratulated, too. It's a shame we didn't properly meet many other people behind the scenes (especially in the kitchen, maintenance, etc.) because the food was tremendous and the outside staff met you with a smile and a good morning whenever our paths crossed. Their efforts surely made our visit that much nicer. Most importantly, after only a few days everyone gave you the sense that you were at your second home. That's why we've already booked for next year and we've never visited the same island twice, never mind returned to the same resort. Read less

Just spent a wonderful week here. Our Butlers, Chase and Donard were fabulous and went out of their way to make our vacation relaxing and most enjoyable. The entire Resort Staff were also very... Read more gracious and accommodating. I wish I could list all their names, but Natalie and Omar stood out. The food was great and they tried very hard to have gluten free selections for my wife at every meal. If you want a small, relaxing resort, then this is the place.While we did take advantage of restaurants at the Sandals Grand next store, this resort could use some more dining spots. The golf course was challenging and very scenic and the caddies we had, Ishmael, Randall and Everett were great. However, this course needs someone to take care of their greens and soon, or this course will be ruined. As a golfer, this will be on my mind before I would come back to this resort. Read less
