Sandals Royal Plantation, Ocho Rios, Jamaica

1 of 10 photos

The most exquisite resort to ever call the Caribbean home, Sandals Royal Plantation, quite simply redefines luxurious island escapism. Sitting on a bluff overlooking, not 1, but 2 silky sand twin-cove beaches and the shimmering Caribbean, the intoxicating sanctuary grants each of its 74 sumptuous suites heart-stopping views of the ocean and exclusive Butler Service. 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*.

Where is it?

We booked our trip months ago, with another couple, and will be arriving the beginning of September for a week. All your reviews have given us great insight and for that I am grateful. The four of us... Read more have travelled to other Sandals Resorts, including Antigua, Bahamas and Jamaica in Montego Bay over the past several years. I have to admit we can't wait to meet the Royal Plantation Team, including the beautiful peacocks, and experience all that there is to embrace - from the beach, food, laughter, sunshine and of course drinks with little tiny umbrella's to top it all off! As I write this, I count the sleeps and starting to pack! See you soon, Royal Plantation! Read less

We have traveled all over the Caribbean and this is now our second home. The atmosphere, amenities and the food and drink are superb, but it is the staff that makes this place a must visit. We have... Read more never encountered staff like this anywhere in all of our travels. No matter who it is or what they do they are great. We have been there twice in the last 8 months, we are returning this December and have already booked two more visits for next year. All ocean view suites, all butler suites, only 74 rooms, perfect for us. You have to visit here just once and you will fall in love with this resort and most importantly the staff. Read less

If this is in your budget range and you have not visited, you are missing out of a wonderful vacation. This is not a high energy resort, you can always take excursion packages or visit another... Read more Sandals property. Hotel is small enough to make friends and discrete enough if you want privacy. This should be the #1 hotel in Ochos Rios, if not Jamaica. This is my opinion and others may look for different criteria for excellence. I have been here three times before, the last time was three years ago. Everytime it is better than the time before. Stayed for nine days during first of August 2014. 1) Service is #1, from your Butler, waiter staff, Chef, or any employees on the property. Example, I mentioned I had never had "jelly" coconut at the Manager's get together. Frank, Security Manager, made sure I had some delivered via my butler for lunch the next day. If your are not having a good time, it is your own fault. 2) Service, i just thoght I would mention it again. Everyone is there for you. 3) Friendly. This is it not the canned, pre-packaged friendliness, but a genuine graciousness. Take a moment to talk to the staff, they are warm and friendly. i call them my "jamaican cousins". They treated me as a good friend and I learned alot about jamaica. 4) Facility. It is a beautiful, one of a kind hotel. The decor is from a more gracious and elegant time. It is not a cookie cutter resort. The paintings, sculptures, landscaping and furniture are the real deal, not reproductions. And everything is maintained by a caring staff. 5) Food. Overall the food is great. i felt better and healthier after eating the food. i am not kidding, fresh, fresh, fresh vegatables, fruits, the food put a cure on me. A few staff shout outs, but everyone was great. Butlers, Orayne and Marvin they did everything to make the experience great. Lorna, gift shop (great little gift shop), so helpful and friendly, like your favorite aunt. Marco, sommelier, invited us to a wine tasting. It was fun and educational, As I have said and repeat, everyone from the General Manager to the beach staff are there for you. The GM, staff, our Butler and others were at the entry, when we left to see us off and wave to us as we drove away. We had the couples massage, my has massages back home, but not as good as these. All three restaurants are great. Royal Grill on the beach at night, very romantic. Le Pappalion (sp) is classic french with Jamaican flair and the Terrace is the best place for the evening music and programs. The soups are to die for, do not knock them til you try them. This is a great place to relax and unwind. From the number of young couples to honeymoom or get married, as well. I just can not say enough good things about our vacation. Read less

I have traveled to most of the Sandals Resorts with my husband and this offers the most privacy and excellent service. Not too much going on at this resort but relaxing. We really enjoyed doing... Read more absolutely nothing but being pampered by our butlers. Breakfast in bed everyday if you wish. Room decorated with rose petals after dinner. We enjoyed eating dinner at the resort next door Sandals Grande Riviera our butler took us to dine next door and we took a free shuttle back to our resort when we were done eating. For lunch we would walk on the beach to the resort next door Sandals Grande Riviera. If you want to do any tours highly recommend the Dunn's River Falls tour which is like 5 minutes from this resort. If you want something special during your stay I would pay for the romantic candlelight dinner they really make it special for the two of you. We also enjoyed couples massage. Food and service was superb at this resort. Booked our trip with 2 Travel Anywhere, llc Read less
