TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
When we first arrived we were a little disappointed in the room, more especially the shower area. This is an older style room with a bath tub and shower curtain. We have stayed at a resort in Cancun... Read more Mexico that had an awesome room with a huge walk in shower and a sitting area that was large and comfortable so that was our expectation. However, once we got past that and had gotten a day behind us and had opportunity to spend the day we felt that because of the quality of the food, the wonderful and friendly staff, and awesome service we would be able to live with what we considered to be the only "flaw." Let me clarify - the room may not have been top notch in our opinion, but it was very comfortable, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. This facility had wonderfully trained staff and we felt like we were just all one big happy family. We spent a great deal of our time on the beach and our beach attendants were wonderful! Certainly we give a shout out and high five to our favorite beach staff, Chad and Germaine. They were super! The beach butlers were also great. There is no doubt we will return to this resort in the future and I highly recommend it. It is also an all adult facility and limited in rooms so there was never a need to have to "fight" for a spot on the beach. Read less

Read more When we first visited Royal Plantation in 2005, we were told if we ever returned they greet us with "Welcome Home"...and they did! I'm ridiculously late in posting this...My husband and I returned to RP March 2014 for my 50th birthday with another couple and it was probably THE BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE...or at least in the top 3 :) The trip started off right w/ complimentary drinks in the airport lounge and our wonderful transfer driver who stopped off at an ocean front cafe for us to enjoy lunch and some Red Stripes to get the vacation going! Perfect!! Oshayne is wonderfully entertaining and attentive and set up dance music for a private birthday pool party and Ashpole kept the rum punch and lobster sandwiches coming. We had way too much fun!!! Only downside was my BFF had to get up super early to snag some chairs on the beach each morning, but other than that, it was fabulous. We had a private garden dinner on my birthday and the food, again, was amazing!! Birthday drinks, decorations and gifts all week, were savored. My spa day was fabulous!! I highly recommend a visit there. We left the property one day to enjoy a Catamaran ride and what a party boat that turned into. Our husbands climbed the falls at Ocho Rios and my BFF and I sunbathed on the boat and drank beer...who used their time better??? The crew was fun and accommodating the dance party on the way back was a blast! Royal Plantation continues to be a gem in the Caribbean. LOVE that the resort is so small and intimate! Every restaurant is delicious and the bartenders pour large lovely drinks. Cheers! I hope we'll be back again. Read less
This was our 7th stay at RP, 99 nights in total here, so you can see we love this small hotel. The staff are the number one reason we keep coming back and although old faces are gone and new... Read more appearing, the standard of service remains excellent. The new management team of Ferry and Arnold are already making a big difference here, getting maintenance and cosmetic issues dealt with swiftly. Yes, the hotel needs updating and the good news is plans are in the pipeline to upgrade the bathrooms, starting from the lower level suites upwards, good news. Our butler team of Kenroy and Neil were as usual fantastic, they know us well by now and leave us to enjoy our much needed holiday time to relax in the sun, but are always on hand if we need anything. One lunch time I was talking to Peter the executive chef and I asked him if they had a new pastry chef as I had not seen my favourite "morning glory" muffins at breakfast for the first few days, next morning and for every other morning during our stay, the muffins were at breakfast, an example of the "can do" attitude all the staff at this hotel display. We ventured over to next door to eat more times this holiday then ever before, purely to go to the Manor restaurant that serves up Jamaican cuisine, make sure you go and try the curried goat with festival or the blue mountain coffee rubbed steak, delicious.Your butler will escort you over and ensure you get back to RP safely. I would be here all day naming the brilliant staff that served us so well for our fortnight, but here are just a few of the stars of the resort. Starting at the top, Ferry (GM) and Arnold (HM) are extremely focused on returning RP to her former glory, they are both very visible around the resort and will stop and chat to guests to garnish feedback..a top team in the making. Marlissa at the front desk is always very friendly and helpful when we check in and when arranging airport transfers etc. O'shayne and his new partner Damarley keeping us entertained throughout our stay. My good friend O'Neill from the watersports team who took me out on the Hobbie cat more than once, a great young chap who I hope has a good future at RP. The two beach butlers, Biggs and Cleon, always smiling whilst keeping the beach lovers well lubricated, DO NOT forget that these gents are able to except tips as beach butlers, they work hard. The wobbly peacock team led by Frankie and Junior who keep my glass filled without the need to ask. Taniqua Dillon who looks after us so well at breakfast or dinner and has a lovely personality, I expect this young lady to go far, I hope it is at RP where she gets her big break. Of course I must mention the butler team, Kenroy and Neil have become firm friends over the years and we would not dream of swapping this team on future stays. Other butlers to mention are Sean, Jermaine, Orayne, Chadsworth and Chase who are always smiling whenever we see them- all excellent ambassadors for the hotel. last but not least is my good friend David Sleight, who looks after the property when everyone else has gone home to bed. In summary, the staff at this hotel go out of their way to make you feel like family. I am already looking to book our 8th stay later this year. Read less
Sandals Royal Plantation- 1/22-1/25. The property was wonderful and the staff was extremely friendly. Kenroy and Neil did a wonderful job as our Butlers. They were very attentive and extremely... Read more helpful. The rooms were clean and quiet and the fridge was always stocked with our choice of refreshment. We liked the idea that we were able to walk to the Sandals resort next door for a change of restaurants and scenario. Then a walk of a few feet feet along the water or on the street to return. A tip for any travelers who do not like waiting in long custom lines...take advantage of the Club Mobay Fast Track service, It cost us $80 per person but was worth every penny. We flew through customs and waited in a beautiful lounge for our shuttle to take us to our resort. We did the same thing on our return. Thank You Jamaica and Sandals for a great vacation!! Hope to see you soon!! Read less
My wife and I had a fabulous time at The Royal Plantation. Our room was lovely and comfortable, and it was well maintained and cleaned. The food was fabulous, especially in Le Pappillon, although we... Read more were disappointed that we could never eat out on the terrace there. Everyone (staff and guests) were very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. I didn't feel that we got much benefit out of the butler service, as they didn't do anything that we couldn't have done ourselves. There were not quite enough sunbeds available in the shade, and this led to people reserving beds early on, which in turn leads to everyone having to do it, as shade is necessary for most people.
