My husband and I stayed at SRP in April 2014, - we actually got married here during our stay. Atmosphere: We LOVE the boutique feeling of this resort. It’s only 74 suites, which makes this a small and intimate hotel. It’s quiet, elegant and relaxing. No loud crowds in sight! And if you do prefer a louder crowd for a...

We had the most pleasant, relaxing, enjoyable stay at the Royal Plantation. It is a small, boutique hotel resulting in a very intimate atmosphere. The property is small, quaint, spotless, and private. The service and food are wonderful. Small pool, Small beach but wonderful attention to detail and care for customers. The most beautiful scenery with a reef view from...

This was our 10th stay at a Sandals, 7th Sandals property, 8th time in Jamaica, and best vacation out of them all. It is a small property, but we don't look for crowds, we just want to relax on the beach during the day and eat great food all day. We accomplished both of these goals.

We had the pleasure of spending our 26th anniversary at Royal Plantation Jan 22 - 29th this year. This was our 3rd time to the property and our entire stay was perfect. I did not think that it could get any better than our last visit but Royal Plantation did it again. The food was excellent (especially the French restaurant...

We have not even left yet and I felt compelled to write this review. From our pick up at the airport we were welcomed by ALL staff at the hotel.

This was our sixth stay at the resort,and the harsh realities of its recent decline were apparent. Upon arriving,the following facilities were inoperative:The Hot (Cold) Tub,ALL three treadmills,and the handle on our dilapidated tub/shower combo. After complaints from several guests,and several days,these issues were addressed. Food was good,but not as good as it has been. At no point was the...

This was our second stay at a Sandals resort, and so far this one is our favorite!!! What makes this place so special is the staff and level of genuine service provided by them. When we first arrived we immediately noticed we were probably the youngest guests staying there, so our first thought was that we might get a little...
