We are independent travelers who frequent European top end properties and world rated restaurants. We have never done an "all-inclusive", or just a beach resort. Our daughter discovered Sandles Royal Plantations, tried it, and told us to put our prejudices aside and make reservations. We did, and are planning to go back again next winter. We tried to book again...

We love Sandals and have been to many on Jamaica as well as a few other islands. This resort had the most amazing staff! Our butlers Jermaine and Chadsworth made our stay unbelievable. The food also was the best we've had at sandals!

We stayed at Sandals Grande Riviera last year and decided to 'upgrade' to the next door Royal Plantation this year because the reviews were very good. The property is very pretty and much smaller than GR as well as being all Butler Suites, however the suites have not been renovated for 13 years and it shows! There are 74 rooms...

We went for a very short trip, felt entirely too short. I have been to four different sandals places and all were great but this was the absolute best.

This is a very nice hotel. the rooms are spacious, the grounds are beautiful, and the food is great. The staff was in most cases very pleasant and helpful.

Our first trip to Jamaica and to Sandals. The hotel itself is nice, clean and quiet. The room was comfortable with beautiful ocean view (west wing). Beach and poolside were clean with 100% beach butler's service. Food was delicious in any of RP restaurants (from breakfast to dinner). We tried Kimonos restaurant next door. The food good as well but...
