Royal Plantation is a beautiful resort. We love the history of the house and guests, and the afternoon tea is delightful if you can fit it in between lunch and dinner! The staff all go the extra mile and make us feel special. Breakfast has everything available, lunch at the beach has live entertainment most days. Dinner in Le Papillon...

The Royal Plantation is better for older folks like us than I imagine the larger facilities are--smaller number of guests and overall quieter. We liked the butler idea; though they are probably not really needed, they are all pleasant and make you feel much better about your stay. Probably the weakest aspect of the week was the food, with the...

Service was great, but food choices were poor and extremely meager. Never did an all inclusive before and don't think we ever will again. Not worth the money for low quality Beringer wine and food. Also, beaches and pool on property are very small. We would rather pay as we go and have more quality options available.

My wife and I stayed at the Plantation between December 24, 2014 and January 2, 2015. What can be said about this true piece of paradise. Sandals has created a vacation destination that cannot be beat. The food was some of the best food I have ever had, not just at an all inclusive, but from restaurants in Paris, New...

This was our 6th stay at a Sandals and first at the Royal Plantation. As stated several times, the staff is beyond excellent. Kudos to Renee (who welcomed us and helped with wifi), Andre (best beach butler ever), Chad (you started each day with a smile and took great care of us), and all the water sports team. The room...

We stayed at the Royal Plantation for 9 days as part of our three and a half week honeymoon. After spending just over two weeks traveling around America, rest and relaxation was what we needed and thats exactly what we got. We were greeted in the hotel lobby after a long flight, with champers and a hot towel and were...
