We have been to Sandals eight times now and probably enjoyed Sandals Royal Plantation the most. The service was the best. They really went out of their way to make our stay great. Mrs. Cousins was an excellent host who made an extra effort for us. Shout out to our butlers Sheldon and Richard. Thanks Richard for the hot sauce...

It has taken me a while to write this because I have loved the RP so much. It's a beautiful property with the best staff. The food is better than it has ever been ! Sadly, it has become too Sandalized for us. Congrats to them for being successful !! After numerous trips there, our dream home away from home....

We stayed at RP for our honeymoon in June 2012. To say that we LOVED it is a major understatement. In fact, we are leaving in just a few days to go back for our 2 year anniversary and cannot wait! One of the best part about the cute small hotel is that it didn't feel like a big Sandals...

We stayed at this resort in 2013 and based on our experience then we elected to return this year. My wife and I love the intimate, quiet atmosphere and the service we receive. It happens that we had a physical issue to deal with when my wife's lower back went out just before we left home. We were accommodated immediately...

Went here for our honeymoon last year. The hotel is small but nice, the best thing about it is the food, totally different to other all inclusives. Having a butler is a nice touch, we're not particularly "needy" so we didn't have them running around for us, but the bubble baths and chocolates in the room on various days were...

This is a much smaller sandals hotel. It is all butler resort which it real terms means it is butler lite. Each butler looks after 8 couples which means they are over run. The bathrooms are a bit out dated but the rest of the hotel food and service (except in the verandah where they serve tea where the staff...

For our anniversary we went to Sandals Royal Plantation. It was our third time going to a Sandals resort, and we really enjoyed ourselves. This resort is a little more subdued than other Sandals resorts - and I say that as a positive thing. You can go back and forth easily to the larger Sandals Grande Rivera, which has a...
