Royal Plantation is a peaceful sanctuary, abundant with treasures that clarify the mind and lift the spirit. Here, you're as close to two pristine beaches as it's possible to be. On one of them, you can bask on the sugary sand attended by beach butlers merely a nod away. Or you can enjoy our world-class amenities ranging from a 5 star Diamond European Spa to our 18-hole championship golf course.

Review:   My wife and I stayed here in early June 2017 for our honeymoon. What a great choice it was. This resort is the ultimate in luxury, we did not have to worry about anything for 10 days. The resort is isolated and very private. There are only 72 rooms and we never felt crowded or had to ever wait for a chair at the beach or a table for a meal. Our butlers were great and made sure everything we needed was taken care of. They checked in with us at breakfast each day to ask what we needed for the day and if we needed dinner reservations made. The food was amazing at all the restaurants. We ventured next door to Ochi for lunch one day and dinner another to try some of their restaurants, and they were just as good. It was nice to return to the quieter more relaxed vibe at Royal Plantation.

Review:   Great views, great food, GREAT service. I had previously given this resort a four star rating and I'm not sure why. Had to have been a mistake. I came here on my honeymoon and it was, by far, the best vacation experience that I have ever had. Our butler, Gladstone, was amazing. I would give one hundred stars, if I could. I would live here, if I could. This place, CAN'T. BE. BEAT.

Review:   My husband and I are on our last full day of our trip and we will be sad to leave. We’ve really enjoyed the gorgeous views and the lush vegetation on this well planned resort. What made this trip unlike any other I’ve had, is the people. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Dancing and singing as they go about their day and always asking how you are. We’ve had a lot of opportunity to chat with various staff members and learn about their lives - everyone here seems happy. Adrian and Ashpole were our Sandals Butlers, a service which comes with every room here. They were really great and made our experience comfortable and convenient. Adrian at the beach bar gave us lots of laughs every day and was a truly friendly face to see during our stay - exceptional service and a really great guy. Cleon, who is the beach butler, is always smiling and always keeps the drinks full even at the very farthest part of the beach. Kennordo in the Wobbly Peacock pub will show you more magic tricks than you can handle. All in all it was a great trip, great beach amazing food and wonderful people. The only thing I would say negative is that the resort itself is dated. The pool appears very old and the room decor could use an update. Looking forward to our next Sandals experience and hope to come back here again one day.

Review:   Went here for my honeymoon, highly recommend! This set the bar so high, especially with the butler service and free water sports, that we've never had a comparable experience at any other luxury beach resort so far. The best thing is that it's not too busy / private feel. You also have unlimited access to the neighboring Sandles resorts with free frequent shuttle service if you want a busier scene and more restaurants.
