Friendly employees beyond belief at Royal Plantation. It really makes the stay so much nicer.

I should have written down all the names of the hard working force that made our stay second to none. What a pleasurable group. Karena (not sure of spelling) was wonderful and has a great singing voice. Butlers Neil and O'Rain were fun the whole week. Front desk, Damion was always helpful. Those are all I can think of now. Sorry to the folks I forgot. They make you feel special at every turn you make. A smile or an offer to help. Both of which are unsolicited. We had a couple shortcomings but they were stunted by the unbelievable customer service we recieved from all of the staff.
A very quiet setting with the ability to go across the street or next door and party with a younger crowd at the Sandals Ochi Hillside and Beachside.
The fact that we could visit the other 2 Ochi Resorts then return to a quiet setting was great.
We played 18 holes of golf across the street one of the days. The course was average. Our caddy was great. Included him in to golf with us. So fun!! He could read the greens so well it made me shake my head.
We hired a private driver, on another day to show us some off the beaten path places. Spent several hours seeing some parts of Jamaica that we would not have seen otherwise. A couple bars, a restaurant and a little bar pretty much in front of a house. The bartender was referred to as "The Colonel". We had a blast there. The "claim" is he used to be Castro's body guard. True? Who knows...and after the second drink...who cares!! Fun.
We were so happy on how accomodating the staff was at every turn. Our second stay there. Will we go back? Geez... I don't know...hahahaha...of course!!
The weather? Obviously a little warm, it was June 2018. Laying in the shade with a little breeze was beautiful. In mid afternoon, a little warm but tolerable. Especially when you have a great Beach Butler like "Fresh Prince" Romaine!! Attentive, friendly and genuinely happy.
We stayed on the east side of the property and had a beautiful and quiet view of the ocean. We will add some photos to show you the view.
I think there is enough on campus between the Royal Plantation and Ochi Sandals to keep you happy for 4 or 5 days. If you include a tour or two, golf etc, you could add a couple more days. For a fun evening, go see Big Mama at the Rabbit Hole at Hillside. It was a little loud the second time we went but still a fun time.
I didn't get much of a feel to go into any part of town to spend the day walking around or shopping. The shopping areas we saw looked more like local folks and local stores.
Water pressure in the shower was a little light, but still OK.
I would say that our room was mid range, but they do have single villas and some bigger rooms for you high rollers. The Villas are completely separate and apart from the Plantation with their own pool and entrance from the beach and the street level. That's it!!

Jewel of Jamaica!

All I can say is Wow! We visited SRP the first week of June and it surpassed all expectations. Our butlers Richard and Orlando exceeded our expectations as well. Dinner plans were always made without hassle and our sunset sail was scheduled for us and treats in our room were really great touches. Service is first at this resort and it really shows. We ate breakfast each morning with Odean one of our favorite staff members at the restaurant and you could order from the menu or get just about anything from the buffet. Food was excellent!!! Lunches at the beach grill we're our favorite but also liked when they grilled burgers at the top level restaurant. Dinners were excellent and had great choices of fresh fish and other great choices. Our favorite place for dinner was papillion. Also loved the Jamaica buffet night.
Service stellar thanks to all the wonderful staff. Romane and Danielo...best beach service ever!!!! Steve, Odean, Karina, Ricardo...you are all awesome and wonderful people! Can't wait to come back and visit you all.
Hotel room is beautiful and no complaints. If there is renovation planned I wouldn't change much. Just a bit of new tile work in the bathroom and replace the tub with a large walk in shower. ( For two! ). Other than that, Nothing needed!
Beach and water we're beautiful and loved snorkeling around the piers.
Spa was great. Loved the 1 hour massage, it really was relaxing.
If you love a beautiful, quiet, relaxing resort and beach and want the friendliest service...Royal plantation is the place. We'll be back soon!

I was reccomeneded to go to Royal Plantation by our Travel Agents at The Travel Junkie. They have suggested I come here for quite a while.

I wanted to surprise my wife with a surprise renewal of our vows for our 20th Anniversary. From the time we showed up to the time of he ceremony the staff knew the secret and kept it from my wife! They were awesome!

We had a great wedding helper Alicia! She was adorable and helpful! One of our Butlers absolutely stood out....... Adrian “Mr. Biggs”...... he was awesome. He went above and beyond every possible perceived expectation of butler service. My wife wanted to pack him up and bring him home with us!

The facilities and staff were wonderful and I will have no issues recommending anyone to come here!

Third Time is the Charm

This was our third visit at Sandals Royal Plantation, and it was the best visit yet. We knew just what to experience and our expectations were met on every level.

I think the shining star of SRP is the beach butler Cleon. He's the best. He remembers your name, brings you drinks without being asked and is just a positive, fun loving guy. My husband swears they are best friends.

We loved dinner at the Royal Grill. Where else can you dine on delicious food at the water's edge? Andrea took excellent care of us. I think we ate there 4 nights of our 6 night stay.

This resort is a little tired and in need of some sprucing up. I noticed signs saying permits were requested for over the water bungalows. That would be amazing! We also heard they are putting in a wood oven pizza grill, which would be a great addition. A casual pizza place would be perfect on this resort.

Book it today! You won't regret it.

Don't want to let this little secret out!

What an amazing stay! The service here is impeccable! We loved the smaller resort where everyone knows your name! Visited Ochi next door a few times (don't miss Mama at the Rabbit Hole!!) and couldn't wait to get back to the more intimate atmosphere at the Plantation. Spent many a night at the Wobbly Peacock where Anife made the most delicious drinks. They made my birthday special with a serenade from Oliver and Andrea and a sweet gift from Zanoue (HTP!!!✊). And a huge shout out to Romane who was the most awesome and attentive beach butler who kept the drinks flowing!! A little updating in the rooms would be nice. Would like to see stand up showers rather than tubs but our view was amazing and we were very comfortable.
